This week’s art

As all of you may know already I LOVE toys. Especially foxes. So when I started doodling again one of the first things I drew was a stuffed fox. Then I watercolored him *gasp* I know I actually drew and colored something in the same week. I amaze myself.

Art I purchased!

Are any of you familiar with “artist bears”? Well they are adorable little stuffed animals (traditionally filled with sawdust) – they are usually made from mohair I think and are very stiff (not cuddly) and meant for display. They are very small usually no taller then 4 or 5 inches I think. Anyways – I bought my first one but its a fox instead of a bear. I found this amazing website where there are a ton of them. You know I’ll be buying more. My sister Richelle has decided she is going to try her hand at making them!

This Week’s Crafty AGGRAVATION!

I can’t seem to stick to one project even though I want to. I drew a bunch of doodles but then only really watercolored one and a half. I started a fox knitted toy and have finished all of it except the tail and half of the ears (and sewing it together)…I have the materials for a “happy jar” accumulated but haven’t started putting things in the jar… But hey since when is that a new thing right?

So link up folks we want to see your art!

Stalk me!

When I'm in the zone I can flip book pages faster than the eye can see - screaming "More Input!" I'm a book, yarn, & art supply hoarding goblin who loves to draw, make toys and craft all sorts of creepy cute things. My current habit is to listen to audio books while I'm arting it up!

    I love your fox. Both of them (I love foxes in general 😉 And yes, I was familiar with “artist bears” but like you the one I have isn’t a bear . . . it’s a warthog, LOL. And I’m sure you’re sister will be amazing at making them. You guys are so great at this stuff.
