Plush Team & Turkey

So, I joined the Etsy Plush Team and the first challenge is to make a turkey, so here is mine. Tom is the turkey in this turkey sandwich. He is wearing white bread and is about 8 inches tall when sitting.

Vacation and a Gremlin

Four days off starts tomorrow. I am pretty sure the last time I had 4 days off in a row was in January. Wow...I need a vacation. So Josh and I are going on a teensy trip and then relaxing for the rest of it at home.

I have a new gremlin here. His name is Froderick and he is almost done. I needs some detail work...mainly pockets and trinkets for the pockets and mittens for every appendage. Froderick is my biggest gremlin yet at about 1.5 feet in height and width. Very huggable!

I, sadly, have not been reading much lately, or writing much either. Hmmm...guess I need to catch up a bit on vacation, huh? Now just to decide what to read. I know what I am writing, I just need to do it.

My top five desired reads (please note that my list will probably change tomorrow) - Physik by Angie Sage, Abhorsen Trilogy by Garth Nix, I am the Messenger by Marcus Zusak, Nixie's Song by Holly Black & Tony Diterlizzi, & books 6-8 of the Edge Chronicles by Paul Stewart & Chris Riddell.

Most of these books have been on my list for months, so if I don't get through them all this week I won't be disappointed.

my first ACEO

It all started with a patch of brown yarn, which needed a mushroom. The mushroom required some grass and then there was a rabbit. Rabbit was hungry so he got some carrots. And that is how I made this Artist Card.

Enjoy! I may even make some more...
