Something New

After some fussing and fuming, the first Teeny Penny Positive Boxed Set sits in my Etsy shop.

I don’t know why this makes me nervous.  Maybe because I love these itty bitty things (1 ½ inches by 2 inches) and have spent lots of time on them.   But that doesn’t make sense.  I spend lots of time on all my work.  Maybe it’s more like sending your kid off to kindergarten.

Maybe it’s because my sister commented that my art has gotten smaller and more complicated over the years, which, she is sure, indicates a kind of pinched pathology. An interesting theory. Still, I love doing tiny things well, so that’s what I’ll keep doing.  Whatever makes the soul sing, right?

I have three more sets in various stages of completion.  That ought to keep the music flowing for a while.

(PS. This sold almost as soon as I hit “Post.”  So Holy Crap, folks!)

    Await further offerings in this style of boxed set – :). Alas, what might be viewed as ‘pinched’ from one perspective, I rather took it upon myself to label, “World renowned Miniaturist in the Making” – so there ya go – 😀

    I so admire your talent for putting things together – even more for doing it in ever smaller sizes — :D. Congrats on the near insta – sale – that should be enough to let ya know you’re onto something while you explore ideas and increase your skills set – :).

    5 – 50 in a set, makes no nevermind to moi – :). But sure it does play into container and shipping costs/efficient biz model – and, one must wait for quality and true value things…. 🙂

    occurs to me that pinches create new and interesting shapes and patterns – least they did when i was hanging in gardens playing with small pieces of nature’s puzzle
