I wish I could print gold on the covers of my mini books. I've seen it done. I just don't know how to do it. Sigh.

How do people get their printed book covers looking so crisp when they're so tiny?!
I wish I knew.
Last night I spent over an hour trying to figure out how to make a decent looking book cover using Microsoft Word. Alas. No luck. I went to bed frustrated.

Also I think my cauldrons need some pewtery shine. I think I need that powder stuff.
However, I'm strapped for cash and James will kill me if I start putting more money into my minis!

I really wish I had a craft room.

I wish I wish I wish.
Sometimes when I look at other amazing miniature maker's blogs I think all the things I made are pieces of junk. Who would ever want any of my stuff? People are so talented.
I'm disheartened today.
Oh well, there's always tomorrow. :)


  1. o no!!! your things are wonderful!!! ...and i also often felt like you do now!!! it will be better!! sending you an email about the books!! :)

  2. Hi Anna, Never feel disheartened in your artistic value we all have to start somewhere your miniature books are very good and as the old saying goes practice makes perfect as time goes on you will come up with new ideas then its just a matter of getting it right, sometimes the most unsuspecting materials can be put to use to give great effects in a variety of ways :)

  3. Thank you for the encouragement :) I really appreciate it. Both of you are so talented, I'm going to try again tonight!
