Back to craftin'

Resolving our noise problem has sort of become a full time job for me and it's seriously cutting into my making time. Thankfully it's been fairly quiet around here for almost a week so I've taken the week off from complaining to get the creative juices flowing again.

Tiny things are so much fun to look at but totally finicky to make. With my little sausage fingers and tendency to be quite clumsy I'm surprised this guy turned out at all.

He measures just under 3" tall. His head is a carved bone bead, his legs are twigs, the left arm is a milagro, the right is a charm pin, his body is a small block of wood and all those gears are miscellaneous watch parts.

I think I may make a few more of these fellas... if I can get the knack of making them balanced so they don't fall over all the time.


  1. Ooooh, I love him :) He's adorable!

    I hope the good fight is going well and that you soon get the peace and quiet you so muchly deserve.

  2. He is wonderful! I love anything mechanical looking! He's just the best! And kudos for making him so tiny... O_O wow...

    I'm glad you've been able to get back to doing the things you love! I love your crafts! They inspire me, and I always look forward to seeing new things you do. ^-^

  3. He's a fantastic little creature! I totally love tiny things too, and enjoy making them once in a while as well.
