I recently tried my hand at creating some little ballerinas for the shop, and I’m officially addicted! This is Angelina, the Sugar Plum Fairy! She’s inspired by the Nutcracker ballet, and I think she’ll be the perfect addition to someone’s holiday decorations! You can find her on Etsy here.
This is Ruby! She has a red rose and a dainty pearl necklace. Isn’t she adorable? You can find her on Etsy here.
Continuing on my Halloween kick, this is Wanda! She’s going trick-or-treating as a little witch, complete with hat and cape! She’s listed on Etsy and is ready to ship!
This is Pongo, a male Bornean Orangutan (Pongo pygmaeus)! This species of orangutan is an endangered species, with a wild population of only 45,000 to 69,000 in the world. There are actually three subspecies across Malaysia and Indonesia, and their numbers have declined drastically due to deforestation and loss of habitat.
Pongo is my first (and possibly last) foray into using Suri alpaca for all of his long hair. I seem to much prefer working with wool!
So, it’s only July and it’s about a billion degrees outside here in Orlando, but I’m already thinking about my favorite season – fall! This is Peter, who happened upon a pumpkin patch… and I think you can figure out the rest. He’s listed on Etsy and is ready to ship!
