one {disciplined} tiny step at a time

yup. my tiny booklets box!
i easily jump from one creative occupation to the next. i intend to draw and surprisingly i am painting pages in a tiny booklet. next i look up booklets in my to-finish-box. before long i am elbow deep in designing booklets. 

a tiny booklet i finished a while ago
i discover a few tiny booklets that desperately need photographing so they can hop into my online shop. and so my next step is to set up my mini studio and photograph the booklets in what tiny may light there is. 

studio photography session
because when i photograph these, and i look up my preps for the postcards i want to list, i can finally set up shop. and then i think. wait! all of the post and package razzmatazz needs to be sorted too. oh my. 

different style tiny booklet
and then i think, i so need a system, and a way to manoeuvre easily between the creative side of design, and the whole she-bang of getting an order to a buyer's door. and thus i need discipline. oh dear.

trying to keep up a system
and i suppose i could create a to-do-list, and a schedule i'll not keep to and an intention i will lose and some other chores that scream for attention and i remember how short a day is.

i will show the finished booklet later. soon
and then i sigh and i think, wasn't i happy this morning, as i was throwing some light on emily dickinson's bees poem, and i painted tiny pages that i then put together. and i remember... one. tiny. step. at. a. time. 


  1. Uuuuh , I looove it, dearest Nadeschda!
    your creative mind, hopping from one branch of fabulous idea to the next, a huge tree!
    your tiny booklets.... so m o o i ....

    While I write, rain pours down, a thunderstorm about 5-7km away (have count the time between flash and thunder) dance in the grey.

    Wish you a nice eve!

  2. I understand, the art is more fun and engaging than the business end.

    I think that Etsy might be more helpful with your challenges now. Fill in the blanks for size and weight and etsy comes up with shipping costs? I haven't done it that way. But you might find it helpful.

    These are wonderful Tiny.

  3. 🍯 you are talking to the fairyyellowbug Queen of 🌟 ting and stopping to begin a new little book! This very second I dropped what I was doing and am now in the midst of a whole new idea. I may post on IG later. We should do a trade one of these days. N 😍 p.s. I love what I see here!! Nice work.

    Having many occupations to pass your time is not at all bad as far as I'm concerned. I love to get a lot in to my day.
