But the last few months have been a bit of a whirlwind, what with moving and hurricane recovery and holidays and visiting relatives and.....you don't care about my excuses. I know that.
But, I assure you. I've been crafting and snapping photos all along. Now I'm just trying to find the time to post.
I've had a good mix of holiday commissions from other people and my own crafting projects to complete, which is exactly how I like it this time of year.
A little while ago, my sweet friend Rachel asked me to make her a chicken and an elephant. Here they are.
Above is a moody silhouette of the chicken. Beautiful. Introspective. And below is an action shot (which should explain the blurry quality of the photo) wherein the chicken is caught just at the beginning of her leap off the coffee table.
Below are photos of the elephant, taken before the eyes were attached. But don't pity this blind beauty, she did indeed undergo a procedure that gave her the gift of sight.
Requisite profile view.
Below is a closeup of my favorite part, the delicious berry-red foot. Mmmm.
Happy holidays, little lovies. I have more to post, but in an effort not to spoil any holiday surprises, they may have to wait a few days.
