Getting over feeling like shit....

but I kept making stuff through the worst of it. I HAD too!!! When I get commissions, I can't rest...I have to attack it until it's done. But I sometimes think that miniature making keeps me sane. Before this, I would sometimes bounce off the walls. This is a way to channel all that angst, restlessness, and boredom. I'm sure many of you feel the same way, to varying degrees. My output has been somewhat hampered by my illness, but now I feel like I need to make up for lost time!!

Ok, why can I not put this text above the pics?? What harpooned!??


  1. Hey Kiddo ... Missed You !!! Welcome back to the land of the living ... sort of!!

    Don't know what you did with the post, but it is repeated as well.

    Your little veggie people crack me up. Now, Every time I look to see how my garden is coming along, I expect to see one of those wee puppies looking up at me and laughing it's wee butt off!!

    Big Hugs ...


  2. Good to know that you're feeling better :) The blogs have been weird for a couple of days, the pics come always on the top of the post etc.

    I love your mushrooms and apples, they are so real :)


  3. You have such amazing energy, Kiva, like lightning - it's good that you have the thread of your work to keep you grounded!! Great for us too, we get to see all those fabulous minis pouring from your workdesk!! Thankyou for being you!!

    The mushrooms and apples are absolutely perfect in their imperfection - does that make sense?

  4. LOVE those mushrooms, they look good enough to eat! How in the world do you get the "gills" on the underside so perfect?

  5. Glad to hear that you are feeling better !
    Your root people make me smile A++++ !
    And the mushrooms amaze me !

  6. I'm so glad you're feeling better! I think making anything is a great outlet for frustration and angst -- and to be able to make such perfectly imperfect things (as Glenda said) -- it must be very satisfying.

    I've been having the same problem with images and text in blogger lately -- it's driving me crazy, too!

    Hope you continue to feel better :)

  7. Su trabajo es siempre increible, me alegra que este mejor.

  8. Hey babe! Didn't know you were ill. :( Nothing serious I hope?

    I hate the new blogger image thingy now. You can no longer size it the way you want "compose mode" does not read or format like the preview. Unless you know html well, it is harder to edit. Super irritating. Not your food though. You are lucky to be able to channel your angst into something so wondrous like your art.

  9. *hugs you gingerly*

    get better soon :(

  10. Get better soon! Minis as usual - fab!:)

  11. Glad you're feeling better! I'm the opposite with commissions. I fret over them and put them off as long as possible.

  12. Hey Kiva, so glad you're doing better! I love your little root people!! Oh wait, I mean I LURV them! I'm sure you get lots of commissions for those little guys!

  13. Me alegro que te encuentres mejor!!!!
    Tus raices, son una maravilla con vida propia jejeje
    Las setas y las manzanas, te han quedado genial!!
    besitos ascension

  14. I'm glad you are feeling better. And beautiful items, as always. One of my goals is to own one of your creations.


  15. Kiva,

    Wonderful mushrooms! I love the root people too. Good to hear you are feelig better now.

  16. Ok, so it's not just me!?? for the life of me, I could not get that text above the pics!! This is why I was repeating myself, because of the numerous copying and pasting, lol!!! That's what it was, Tom ;-).

    Glenda and Nina, yes!!! I strive for imperfection, you guys nailed it!!! Thank you!!

    I am feeling alot better, but you guys sure know how to boost my spririts ;-)!!

    El otro se llama:"LOS PREMIOS DE NATI", en el encontrarás mimos, premios,homenajes, juegos y otras cosillas, si entras seguro que encuentras algun premio dedicado a mis amigos-as con ttodo mí cariño que podrás lucir en tu bello blog. Si crees que merecen la pena y decides quedarte será un honoe para mí tenerte como un@ amig@ más.
    Hasta pronto.
