Puppets and a GIVEAWAY!

I finished my first batch of cone puppets, and they have the full stamp of approval from all 3 of my urchins. They have hand-sculpted polymer heads, that I painstakingly painted and sealed with a non-toxic gloss sealer.

We have a Giraffe, a Fruit Bat, a Parrot, and a Pink Cat. They were
time consuming, but so fun to make! If you have any ideas for future creations, let me know, the possibilities are endless!

I plan to take a little video to show them in peek-a-boo action. That is when they really shine.


AND AThanks to my friend Kate, I discovered Sweet Lavender quilt shop. The girls and I went yesterday (I am sooo glad Isaac was having a Daddy day, lots of "please do not touch" signs), it was a wonderland! I bought my first needle felting needles and wool, and here is my first creation. As a thank you for the 3 people who visit my blog, I am giving this little sweet bunny away to a random commenter. How to play: Just place a comment on this post, nothing fancy, just say hi. Then in 4 days (Monday the 30th) I will pick a winner with the random number generator, and send this bunny to you!

I don't think I have mentioned it yet on this blog, but my hope is that I can build a little business using my interesting skills, so that Lee won't have to work his second job. I want to find something that I can do to contribute while still being home with the kids, that will allow Lee some more family time. As a firefighter he already works about 264 hours a month, plus another 40+ at his second job. I did the math, the average 9-5 worker works about 160 hours a month. Lee works almost double that! Sorry about my Rambling!

I would like to thank everyone for their support and encouragement. I think I will be doing at least one giveaway each month, so keep checking back!

How flipping talented you are star! You absolutely amaze me. I was thinking that I wanted a shirt made out of the header of your blog. That girl holding a star would be a cute shirt. You should sell shirts too. Seriously, if I had a 10th of your talent I would be making millions. You need to really persue it so you can make BILLIONS!! Love ya! oh, and let the colicky baby begin. AHHHHHH!

Hi. Those popups are really, really great. And love the darling little bunny, too! (And thanks for indulging my laziness and allowing the feed!) You are super talented, my friend. I'm so glad you are giving time to your gifts.
