Insect Preservation and Display

Almost a year ago, a friend talked me into going to a butterfly pinning class. Don’t get me wrong, I was intrigued and thought it would be fun. But I never imagined just what would happen in my soul when I carefully spread its fragile wings. I didn’t just fall in love with insect pinning … I fell in LOOOVE!!

I’ve been pinning, designing, and displaying my heart out! But, as with most of my hobbies, this new obsession needs a way to pay for itself. And these pretty little kids need a place to live! So I’m super excited to announce that I’m opening a new Etsy shop just for these steampunky bugs. If you’re interested in seeing what’s available, head on over to Tommi’s Odditorium.

As always, I love the challenge of a custom order. So if you’d like me to find and preserve a specific insect for you, drop me a line.
