Puppets

I put on puppet shows at daycare centres and preschools. I mostly make my own puppets, but I do have some store bought ones. Here are some of the latest I’ve made. My puppets are sturdy. They have to be because they’re quite abused after each show when I let the kids have a turn. The last time I made them, I made duplicates and I put a few of them for sale on Etsy:

It sucks to be sick

I think on Thursday and Friday my son got to watch about 7 hours of John Deere earth moving machines, Max and Ruby and The Wiggles while I just lied there all sick. But I felt better yesterday and got productive. I made a bonnet and got teased by family members that I was going to wear it. (I do love the regency bonnet era as they all know) It’s a baby bonnet. I also made another pair of baby shoes to match it (since everyone loved the shoes I took to the baby shower last week) and I painted some stranger who offered me some points on deviant art for his portrait. I’m quite cheap! Here are the photos:

Baby Shoes

I went to a baby shower today and I made these cute little shoes this morning. I can’t really say how long they took to make because I was constantly interrupted by my son, but they turned out to be easier to make than I thought.
