Tiny Tales and Short Stories

A lot has happened in last year in my life. We moved to a new home, new school for my son, new neighbors and new friends. The most pleasant change has been the arrival of our baby boy, a little brother for my elder son.

When Seattle Handmade  announced the Tiny Tales and Short Stories challenge I knew what I will be making. This is the first time I tried three dimensional quilling and I learned a lot during the process. 

Participating local artists from all over the Puget Sound were challenged to create a TINY work of art; no larger than 6” with an accompanying story so SMALL, it can be told in less than 200 words. 

The art work of 17 artists was revealed in an open-to-the-public artist’s reception at the fabulous Stunningly Strange Gallery during the Edmond's Art Walk, Thursday August 21, 2014.

All artwork will continue to be available for purchase through September 17th at the gallery. 

I will be posting the pictures of the show and stunning work of fellow artists soon.

Here is a picture of  my art work and the story.  

“My Little Brother”

When I turned four last year, Mommy told me I was going to be a big brother soon. I made big plans of playing baseball and soccer with you. I was ready to teach you everything I knew and be the best big brother. 

The day you were born, I was very excited to bring you home from the hospital. You were so tiny and beautiful but when you came home, it was too hard to share Mommy and Daddy with you.  You could not play baseball or soccer with me and you kept sleeping most of the time.  I wished you would go back to Mommy’s tummy but that did not happen either.

You are a little older now. I love it when you hold my finger and smile at me. I love it when I sing for you and you stop crying.  I enjoy playing baby games with you and am so happy when you come to pick me up at school.

 Most of all I am proud being your big brother.

Welcome to this world my little brother! Welcome to our family!
