Great Etsy Seller -- verybigjen and her incredible pincushions!

After longing for one of these cute but creepy pincushions for ages, I finally bought one for myself yesterday. These tiny masterpieces are made by Etsy seller verybigjen. They are just under two inches tall and are customizable with regards to flesh colour and iris colour. How creepy is that? But definitely cool ...

Jen also makes a huge array of pincushions in other styles. Check out this large pincushion with a Japanese cherry blossom patttern appliqued onto it. Gorgeous!

Please visit her Etsy shop at!

Custom collage artwork

Wow -- I've been MIA from my blog for a whole month! Yikes! It's that darned opera stuff, folks -- totally takes over my life from time to time. Ah well, it is my principal profession ... :)

Here's a piece I just completed today, for a darling patron of mine who has now commissioned two pieces from me. I really, really like the text she chose for this one! And we both agreed on turtle doves ...

I love creating custom art and am always happy to discuss any ideas folks have for pieces.
