Koolewong ~ my newest koala

It's funny, but I always underestimate the time I think I'll spend when I start these koalas. I do plan on another one (a bigger one) sometime during 2011, but I'm going to give myself a break from creating those tiny fingers for a while.

So this is Koolewong, my last creation of 2010 and also my last koala for a little while. I hope you can visit his auction to see all his details and more photos..

My latest koala

Thank you for letting me introduce my latest koala baby! He is made with recycled sheared beaver fur with recycled mink accents. He doesn't have open/close eyes/mouth, or claws, but he still has lots of detail. I hope you enjoy seeing him!

While I was taking these photos, one of our cats decided to pose for me... well, really she took over my set and I took advantage of it!

I hope everyone has safe and enjoyable visits with their family and friends over the winter break!

Busily working....

It's a gorgeous white day here today... the snow is coming down steadily and everything is covered in it.  I wish I could stay home all day and create, but I do have to go to physio and take my children to swimming lessons.  That's the worst part of winter for me... driving in it. 

I am busily working on my newest creations.  One is a commissioned koala, and the other I hope to have ready for ebay next Sunday.  The commissioned koala is made from recycled sheared beaver fur - the first koala I've done in this fur.  I don't think there is anything softer than sheared beaver!

I hope everyone has a great day!

Our mountain in the winter....

This is a photo of our mountain, Roche de Boule, taken during the winter (from the road in front of our house).  My husband took this photo.

Around the same time and place, he also took this photo....

I hope you enjoy these!

~ Robyn ~ a blue teddy bear

There's just something about a blue bear that appeals to me.  I created Robyn from blue synthetic fur.  I wanted to give the look of a realistic bear, only in blue... so I've given her loads of detail including open/close eyes and epoxy clay claws.  She is available on ebay at...

I'd love to hear what you think of her :o) 

Giant Panda story on BBC Earth News

If you haven't already seen this news story, it is worth a read... I learned some interesting facts about Giant Pandas there.
