Tiny Hannah sets off (and other things)

Hello again my lovely loves!

It feels a bit strange to be writing again so soon, but, as I had such a fantastic response to Tiny Hannah, I thought I'd let you know that she's off on her first adventure today.

She going to Edinburgh first, and then on to Derby, and, as you can tell from the photo below, I seem to be a bit nervous about her trip.

Fortunately, she has her Tiny iPhone with her if she gets in a jam.

As I said, the response to the doll, and the video Mum and I made, has been lovely, including a very nice mention from the Conscious Crafties, who wanted to know if I'd be interested in selling Tiny Humans through their website. (Although they, quite wisely, didn't use that slightly questionable wording.)
Unfortunately, due to the sheer amount of time and spoons it takes to create one of these dolls, it's unlikely that I'll creating a business out of it, but I'll show you how to make your own, bit by bit, on here. Perhaps in the future I'll do occasional commissions if someone really, really wants a doll made by me.
In the mean time, if you're keen to support Spoonies (and their carers) who are unable to work full time due to illness or disabilities, you can head on over to Conscious Crafties and check out their pretty impressive online shop. They're also on Facebook and Twitter.

*plans entire Christmas present list*

In other news I had one of my previous posts featured on The Mighty, which made me feel pretty bloody amazing. You can see it, in all it's glory, here. (the Dutch website that featured a translation of the same piece that the mighty chose to run), also just featured my "What not to say to Sick People" post, so that's available here.

You can keep up to date with Tiny Hannah's adventures on the blog, on my Facebook page, or on Twitter.


  1. I feel like Tiny Hannah ought to have her own tiny twitter page (which displays at one quarter of the normal pixels, so it looks tiny on your screen) - would this be too much?
    PS I am so proud of you and all your achievements!

    1. Man, I would love this so much! I'm not sure how I would make this happen though.
      And thank you :) Likewise!

    2. I have no technical knowledge in this area, unfortunately. We'll have to outsource it to someone with better credentials than me!

    3. I love the tiny props! You could design "screen shots" of a tiny iPhone with the tiny Twitter page on it?

  2. I am so happy for you that you had the energy to make tiny Hannah, and that a little piece of you will be travelling round the world and participating in your friends lives :)

    1. Thanks Siobhan! She's got quite a few offers already!
