This holiday season saw quite a momentous occasion for me...the first time I was commissioned to make something! ...Actually two things! Yes, I was quite excited!
I was asked by someone at school to make a pair of elephants for a colleague having a baby shower. I knew that her nursery was beige and white so I ran with that theme. The 'pair' wasn't specified, but I thought a mother and baby would be fitting...and cute!
The shape was one I copied off a clip art print and the tail bows and bottom hearts my own spare of the moment ideas.
A peaceful mother...
...and her alert little newcomer.
I was also asked to make some more owls as a Christmas present for a workmate's daughters. The only requirement: blue and purple, to coordinate with their furnishings.
I always love making these as they take on their own little personalities as they come to life!
All in all, a pretty wise old bunch!
