2014 in Review: Where the Art Went

I've always wanted to put little dots on a map whenever my creations were sent to their new destinations, but I wasn't in charge of the sending part until this year. But NOW I'm in charge of every little thing, and I had so much fun adding dots to my map! (Probably too much fun. I'm a bit of a nerd.) I was thrilled to discover that in 2014 (a most challenging year to be sure) my creations went off to live in 42 states, and 13 other countries! This year I hope to travel vicariously through my art to all sorts of destinations unknown, including the elusive Oklahoma. Mind you, I have no desire to actually travel to Oklahoma. *giggle*  
Being a product of a less-than-stellar public education, my geography skills are pretty pitiful. However, I love learning new things, so you can imagine my joy at discovering that the United Kingdom has 4 countries! (Although, I suspect there could be some argument over their claim to that bit of Ireland.) Plus, I officially know where Wisconsin is now! Also, did you know that The Netherlands is Holland too?  And Russia is ONE country? One really BIG country. I think I thought is was a continent or something. Australia too. Continent or country?? Turns out, both! 



Anyway, thank you so much to all of you wonderful people in all of your exotic locations. (I'm not talking to you, Oklahoma.) It is such an honor that you have given my creations a home!

Last year-- 42 states and 13 countries. 
This year-- The World!

A Merry Little Christmas






So here's the conundrum-- my love of Christmas cheer plus my very small space did not add up to a livable/workable environment. Solution-- I made my own little tree! I designed it such that it can all be taken apart and stack flat for storage. I had so much fun rounding up my tiny treasures to decorate it with! And I already had the little house for the top (you can go here for directions to make your own), which perfectly covered the bolt that holds the whole tree together. I'm thinking I'll put together some instructions for the stacking tree after the whirlwind of holiday activities has blown past.  In the meantime, my list is long and I'm mighty grateful for that!

Hope you're all feeling the spirit!
(But if you're just not that's okay too. I'll still like you.)
