taking a brain twisting class this summer at my local junior college with my darling daughter. full of plotting points and tiny dimensions on x and y coordinates. i really thought i would never use that sort of math idea in my life. it is coming in handy understanding all that.
pictured is my first assignment...re-sizing a bodice up and down. lots of homework and concentration required. i don't do anything else in my life where i have to pay microscopic attention for so long...super tricky to keep my brain on task.
excited to have a deeper look into where patterns and people grow in sizing. will be very useful in my vintage pattern re-sizing for miss teapot dress up. coming soon:)
after much ado we have finally put up our etsy shop. hooray!
pictured is one of my favorite products. tiny books made of recycled library discards. we have used them for disneyland autographs and small stories and tiny art. they are wearable with a hand finished rayon ribbon and lobster claw clasp which can be clipped to other places for "on the go" tiny art collections and experiences:)
i am so excited to be able to share more of my creative world of mini things apart from seasonal adornments and create alongside my daughter who is my creative partner in crime:)
we missed the bloom of the cherry blossoms at the tidal basin in washington d.c. by about a week and all that was left was their tiny pinkcalyxs and their slightly greenish to brown stems. very sweet up close but alas... not the show i was hoping to catch.
we did however catch the full bloom of another variety called the kwanzan with full, pom pom like clusters of sweet pink blooms stuck to the ends of bare brown branches.
happy spring to one and all who come here to visit.
i have been busy in my workshop, head down, nose to the grindstone for many months working with my daughter on a collection of works to be put up on etsy. we will blog of it and link to it when it is up and running.
i have a small collection of bracelets/mini crowns for spring this year which i hope to place at the ark. they are sweet and small and i love their scale so much. i will work more on small things this year with my daughter as this is the size and quality that speaks most lovingly to us.
loving spring and all its magical petal storms and delicate details.
i am the creator of curiosities/artifacts for adorning one's life. i feel so blessed to be able to freely splash and play in so many collected, creative materials dear to my heart. the world of miss t is one part creative laboratory, one part homeschool, one part neighborhood of doll houses, one part bric-a-brac and one part disheveled dolly sanctuary. i love to sew, knit, crochet, collect and ponder things. i have tearoom and flower shop imaginings in which to expand the good use of my home economics and culinary degrees...but for the fleeting moment, me as "mommy" is my best and most purpose filled work.
