Daily Mini Veggie, 200 days and 30 years, 2015, Stéphanie Kilgast


It almost seems to good to be true, but today marks the 200th day of my daily miniature veggie challenge and also the day I’m turning 30!

The Daily Miniature Veggie Challenge
During the year of 2015 marks, I started to sculpt miniature veggies and fruit daily.
This picture shows the 200 mark.
All sculptures are made using polymer clay.

I started this challenge for mainly two reasons, first because I wanted to make a daily art challenge for years and hadn’t found any good subject yet.
Secondly, and more importantly, because people often state they don’t like vegetables and I wanted to show the sheer variety of edible plants found on Earth.
I shoot photographs of every single vegetable and fruit and post them on dailyminiveggie.tumblr.com.

30 years old.
That’s two times 15.
At 15 my life was ahem… How shall I put it? Pretty boring. No real passion, no love life, and friends? Well, most kids would only stay 3 years at my school, because it was a french school in Germany and most parents 3 years contracts. Not fun, I gave up making friends at some point and got extra picky. If you are my friend and I told you I love you, be sure that means something. I don’t love friends easily.
Frankly I was a bit miserable. No point dwelling on that part of my life.
When I turned 20, I was scared because I wasn’t feeling “adult” (whatever that means) and thus I felt it was about time to behave like one. I gave up trying since then 🙂
I was also scared because I had no clue what I’d grew up in, no idea what I would become or what I’d make with my life.
It was ok, but still not great.

30 though? Awesome.
I have the coolest job on earth, a pretty cute and nice partner in crime, two lovingly annoying cats and heck, I live in the most amazing home. Oh and I work from home too! There’s also the sea nearby. Sometimes I think this is just too much luck for one person, but you know what? I’m enjoying the heck out of it!
I am content with my life, I know my weaknesses and strengths and I have probably never been as beautiful and confident as I am right now.

Mark my words.
30 is perfect.

    It is not luck, you worked hard for your work and for your home and your boyfriend is lucky to have you :))) Happy Birthday!!!

    "inflexible à mes arguments" ou juste "n'a pas envie de manger moins de viande", parce que le fait que la consommation de viande est nocive pour l'environnement actuellement n'est pas vraiment une controverse 😉

    I worked hard indeed, but it's also always a bit of luck, luck to be born in a country where women are able to work, to have parents who support you, to be able to study, to be able to take risk, to be good at what I decided to do, etc.
    Hard work sure, but also a lot of luck 😉

    Happy birthday Stephanie!
    Wise words, and even if I had a different path I feel the same as you at almost 30 ;)!

    pardon pas vu plus tôt ta réponse (pas au top en ce moment )
    bonne semaine

    Ah oui c'est compliqué de manger moins de viande si on n'aime pas les légumes 😀
    Par contre, je suis persuadé que c'est une question d'apprentissage et de cuisson.
    La dernière fois que je me suis retrouvé face à quelqu'un qui n'aimait pas les légumes, il s'est avéré qu'elle n'avait goûté qu'à des cuissons à l'eau… beurk.

    Congratulations on your 200 days miniature veggie challenge!
