He stands at just under four inches tall.
His job is to collect any decorations that fall to the floor in his house unnoticed. The humans he lives with don't even know he exists!
He found this bell in the corner behind a dust bunny.
He lives outside, where the recent inclement weather has forced him to come up with a unique solution to staying dry.
Who knew that oak leaves were multi-purpose? Lucky for him that he is only 3 inches high!
Until next time, happy holiday memories in the making! See you all next year.

That wonderful texture and subtle warmth just lends itself to winter work.
Have a wonderful winter. I should have pictures of new work by Wednesday!
Until next time, happy shortest day of the year!

(Disclaimer: Yes, I know that there are boys who are tidy and make cute cookies and there are girls who would make scary ones. I just thought this was funny.)

Because he needs to go to his new home, I had to take the photos today and I just didn't have much time to make the photos flawless.
The lighting was horrid, the area I use for staging is covered with WIP's....you all know the holiday routine! Que sera sera.
This is the best I could do in the time that I had.
This little guy is joining a Bichon I finished previously and they will be off to their new home today as well.
I hope the buyer is happy with the end results!
Until next time, happy holiday rushes!

This is one of the "babies" in a set that I purchased from a lovely man on eBay. He took the time to share the story behind them. His family had them in the 1940's when we were in the thick of WWII. Because they were from Japan, they weren't "supposed" to have them out on the tree.
For my SoCal friends, this item came directly from Santa's Village, aka the Mecca of Christmas Kitsch. My parents purchased it prior to my birth. I always place it front and center on the main tree, though the rest of the ornaments are all glass and glitter. I love my cheesy piece of glittery Styrofoam THAT much!
This last one was found and purchased by my good man. He knew how I was fond of "old" Christmas items and this girl had a weird little expression on her face. Right up my alley.
Hope you enjoyed seeing some of my things! Until next time, happy merry making!

I'll post more of my Kitschmas items tomorrow.

He is made of polymer clay over a wire armature. Ingwerplatzchen was hand painted.
He has Tibetan lamb's wool hair, inset glass eyes, applied eyelashes, and his own set of needle felted clothes.
He carries an acorn.
It just sort of went with his outfit.
He isn't one of Santa's elves. He was worried about the pressure of deadlines and such.
Instead, he works outside, helping Mother Nature keep things in balance.
There is a little more "flow" and a little less hurry.
I hope you like him. He was a joy to make.
