A compliment to my creations...

I thought this was neat enough to share....

I am finishing up another baby pygmy marmoset... it has been a while since I created my last one. While googling photos of real baby marmosets, I came across this post:

It is about real pygmy marmosets and has two photos of one of my creations at the top! I take that as a real compliment to my work :o)

After I wrote the above, I found two blogs that featured one of my owls as a real owl :o) http...://,

~ Bao Yang Wang (Baby Hope) ~ recycled mink panda cub

Here he is!! I'm so excited to introduce my new baby panda - Bao Yang Wang (means "baby hope"). I hope you love him as much as I do :o)

You are invited to visit his auction (CLICK HERE) to see more photos and all his details :o)

Yay... on the homestretch....

My newest panda is almost finished... one last detail. So my Tuesday estimate was right :o) I'll be taking photos this afternoon. As long as there are no unexpected interruptions, he'll be on ebay later today.

The problem with estimates....

.... is that it is so hard to tell how long something will take. I thought I'd be finished my 12" panda today, but it turns out that I didn't estimate enough time. My constant headache made things more difficult today, but I have made some progress on this sweetie. My new estimate is to have him on ebay by Tuesday - maybe this time I'll be right :o) So far I am loving him... he just needs a couple finishing touches!

The weather man was right.....

.... and we are completely snowed in! The snow is coming down like a marathon runner - keeping up a steady pace. It wouldn't be a problem for me, but I forgot to put coffee on the list when I last went to town and we're down to the last few beans :o( I love my coffee.....

Realistic recycled fur panda bear coming soon!

I'm still working hard at finishing my current creation... a 12" panda cub with open/close eyes and mouth. We had a blizzard here on Friday and very cold weather. Today it is snowing with a heavy snowfall warning being given for our area. Perfect! It gives me lots of time to stay inside and concentrate on this baby panda :o) I'm just glad we've got two strong boys who help with the animal chores and bringing in the firewood!

Two pandas coming up!

Hi all :o)

I'm busily working on two panda cubs right now - both out of recycled mink fur. One is a 5" miniature, and the other will be about 12". I'm closer to being done the littlest one, perhaps I'll have photos tomorrow.

I just love creating these pandas - to me it's the next best thing to being around a real one :o)
