Miniature dioramas and gravity defying sculptures
Last week’s post only focused on writing tips and advice. I still have a few of those to share, but I also found some non-writing links featuring miniature dioramas and gravity defying sculptures.
Tatsuya Tanaka is a Japanese artist who concentrates on making miniature dioramas. Like this one:
or this one:
How cool are they? He must have incredible patience to work with such small components. Does he make them by hand or is there a online Miniature-Figures store? Wow.

P.T. Barnum would have loved this elephant balancing on its trunk. Who has the imagination to conceive these ideas then figure out how to accomplish them?
A Quilt for Every Day
If you didn’t know, beside writing, one of my talents is quilting. I love the interplay of color and design as much as the satisfaction of making a treasure that will be handed down for generations. I’m always looking for the next quilt pattern. Yes, I do live in Arizona where the summer night temperatures might not go below one hundred degrees. Hey, we got down to 39 in December!
When these patterns popped into my Pinterest feed, I knew I had to share them.

I did a quick check and realize I follow eight of her suggestions on a regular basis, four some of the time, and five not at all. So that’s a C-?
