I can't get my camera to work!  I'll be up all night trying to fix it if I have to, because I spent so many hours creating my entry for this contest, and I don't want to miss out on entering it because my stupid camera won't work!  Please, please, please let me enter even though my pictures won't be up by the deadline (well perhaps they'll be up before midnight on the west coast, come to think of it).  Thank you for your consideration, and I look forward to seeing everyone's entries and posting my own!  

UPDATE: I got my camera working!  YAY!  So here's my entry:

This is my Teeny Tiny Fairy Terrarium.  It was made by a teeny tiny fairy who loves horticulture.  As a beings very close to nature, most fairies are very find of fauna, but this particular fairy was obsessed with it.  She decided that she wanted to bring the nature she loves so dearly into her home, so she created this Teeny Tiny Fairy Terrarium.  

Technical details:  The Teeny Tiny Fairy Terrarium stands 2" tall, and 1.5" across.  It has a centerpiece of a pink orchid.  It also features a button fern, little red mushrooms, and a little plant with tiny pink flowers.  This all rests on a soft bed of moss.  It is enclosed within bell glass on a wooden platform.  It took approximately 8 hours to create. The plants and flowers are made of polymer clay, wire, silk flower fabric, and glue.

I hope you enjoyed the Teeny Tiny Fairy Terrarium!  I sure enjoyed creating it, and participating in this contest!  Happy crafting!

I'm not obsessed. I'm excessively enthusiastic.

That is gorgeous! As someone who has a small miniature collection I can say a lot of people would pay a lot of money for something as detailed and beautiful as this.
