I finally made something all for myself that I do not have to mail away!
I got this compact mirror for two bucks and waited til I had a good idea and some time to alter it.

I recently moved to a temporary place and brought only bare necessities for crafting with me, so this is a real 'use what you have' piece which includes a foam bit from the top of a clothes hanger, painted tinfoil (nail polish), a shopping bag, and i had no fluff for clouds so I noticed a wee hole starting in the back of my homemade pincushion so I needled a bit of fluff out that will never be missed.
I had been scouting thrift shops for ages looking for a seriously tiny animal figure of some kind with no luck. then this souvenir spoon landed on my doorstep with a tiny black bear hanging within it. I cut him out and put him on a log which is a piece of garden twine.

This creation is two inches.
Thanks for looking!
