I love special orders. I love it when someone asks me to make something that I would probably never think to make myself. It's really exciting to see it come to life. In the past, special order monsters have been anything from a Monstapus to carry wedding rings
down the aisle [which I still think is the best ring bearer pillow idea EVER], to a funny walrus
and even Cthulhu
. Each was a lot of fun to make.
Lately people have been asking for birds... mostly owls. And I still need to make some more. I owe a friend one from last summer... but now I have that pattern figured out so I can get going on more owls! So here is what I made recently: Two Owls and a DUCK! [The little webbed feet on the duck make me smile!] Enjoy.
I was having a little fun taking pictures of these guys. I posed the duck with some hand-carved wooden ducks that my uncle sent us from the Philippines. Here's my favorite shot:
This Saturday is that "Something Cool" that I mentioned in the last post... stay tuned this weekend to see what that is all about! I think you'll like it... especially if you live around Fredonia, NY.
