blogInsane attention to detail

February 21, 2014


I love small details and love it when people pay attention to them.

My step-father is an artist in craftsman. He can pretty much make anything out of a chunk of wood, seriously. I have always admired his attention to detail, but he finally blew my mind. I’ve seen him carve things perfectly without any power tools and I’ve seen him paint photo realistic images, but the dollhouse got me. He built a dollhouse for my niece’s birthday. That’s nothing out of the norm. The house had to have working lights,so it was wired with lighting…still not abnormal, just above and beyond. What got me, the drapes. The man hand sewed all of the mini drapes in the house, no sewing machine, and ironed all of the tiny pleats into them. Even at my best, I couldn’t be that meticulous. I do envy it and am inspired by it, no matter how crazy I think it is.
