My new friend Tanja Jensen- budding miniaturist supreme!

 Tanja is from Denmark. She befriended me not long ago and she is such a doll!! A talented one at that!! She is sending me a brand new jar of Scenic Water (GOLD!!), and I'm sending her some old, original formula Kato Clay (some from the wonderful pile that Jainnie sent me ;-). But I digress...I looked at her work and when she told me that she just started sculpting miniatures a year ago, I was shocked!! One year, people!! I believe some people can just pick something up, and it's pure instinct. The hands start working and it just comes almost naturally, you know? Not only does she make food- she's popping out dolls, too! I love to see people just starting out with such a passion, and I can tell that Tanja has that laser focus ;-). Go Tanja!! Check out a few of her pieces below, and visit her website for more (she will be adding more dolls soon):
