RCKFELLA - no i didn't grow the vegetables.  it really is ridiculously easy to find tiny food of all kinds.  like i said, i had a big jar of pickles in my fridge. . .i just rooted through the jar until i found the smallest one and then sliced it up super thin.

i had a container of grape tomatoes, too.  so i did the same thing, picked out the smallest one and cut it up. . .from all the slices i picked the ones that went best with the size of the bun.

the only thing we had to buy was the little onion.  but i see them everywhere now, they are about the size of a marble.

when we went to paris, my husband and i saw all sorts of baby veggies in the market.  lettuces, carrots, cucumbers, tomatoes, radishes. 

super expensive, but oh-so-cute.

Natural Starlet - no, it's not real soda. . .it's the only thing i would change if i did this again.  the soda cup is 100% polymer clay.  the straw, too.  i cut the lid using a soda bottle cap so it would have that crinkled edge.

superl4tive. . .i used mini pickles, almost like gerkhins, a grape tomato, and a pearl onion.  i just picked the smallest ones i could find in their respective bunches.

this little project has gotten the attention of the international press.  it has appeared in Metro, The Daily Star, The Sport and Ralph magazine. . .not to mention countless blogs around the world.

i really can't thank the craftster community enough for their enthusiasm for our little project.

my husband and i are going to make a miniature thanksgiving dinner at some point in the near future.

i love you guys!

some of the most intersting fonts i've found are here:


i think pretty much anything is translatable to tattoo.

i think it would make a great light fixture. . .imagine four of these made like an open box and hung over a light bulb. . .OR set them up to go around a candle.

i think incorporating light in some way would really highlight the fragility and color.

for a sweet treat you could go retro and make cake and jam pinwheels.

mix up a box of yellow cake mix and pour into a jello roll pan
bake it
let it cool
spread it with preserves (or icing if you want)
roll it tightly along the long edge
let it rest on the seam so it sticks together
slice in one ince sections all the way down the log
arrange them on a tray

not super healthy, but not store-bought!


you could try your hand at a berry and grape topiary.

there's a place in town that makes these with all sorts of fruit cut into flower shapes, but to make it easier you can use berries and grapes which only have to be washed

styrofoam cone
aluminum foil

cover the cone in foil (you may want to anchor it to a plate or something with a bit of hot glue on the bottom)

stick toothpicks halfway into the foil cone in a symmetrical pattern all the way around.

gently push the fruit onto the toothpicks.

continue until you can't see the foil.

you may want to set out a bowl of sweet yogurt dipping sauce, too.

Actually, the night editor at Metro let me know yesterday that my project was going to appear today.

Thank heavens they ASKED.

How does it look?

i JUST saw a lady at the grocery store that had a sort of cascading handprint tattoo down her arm.  she had an infant and a toddler with her, so i assumed the tattoos were representative of their little kiddo handprints in ink.  it looked amazingly real (the little sworls of the fingerprints and everything). . .sweet little kid handprints going down her arm, as if they'd been clutching her arm.

little ink footprints might be cute, also. . but with four kids that's a lot of ink!

i always liked the idea of a pair of handprint tattoos, or a tattoo of hands on someone's back as if they were being embraced. . .the position of the hands, you know, or arms, showing that the person is loved inside and out.
