Holiday Favorite

I know I should be outside by now spilting wood with the log spilter, but that thing scare the heck out of me. My husband was teaching me how to use it because we used to use an ax and wedge. His last words to me is "keep your head back or if a piece of wood could take your head off." Oh yea that makes me want to use it. LOL. So yes I'm procrastinating on going out there and instead I though I show you two of my favorite thing I've been collection. My husband had gotten him the year we moved into this house. He stands over 6ft tall (if you have seen a photo of my son. He nicely stood by the nutcracker for me.}Sorry about the wall behind him I'm still painting the living room. These are just a few of them.

Oh I can't forget this one {Grinch its my purse his eyes glow in the dark} and yes I know it's a big different from the 2 nutcracker photos, but I never said I was normal. Love the Grinch so nutcracker ballet inside and whoville outside.
So do you have any favorites????

First fantasy bird I've made

Hi, I thought I'd show you the first fantasy bird I've ever made back in April . I had made this one a long time ago, it's in a private collection now. I had called it Gothic Spring Fire and Ice bird. I had peeled the feathers off to get the curl affect. Now I'm working with fake water and feathers to make my next bird.
Ok I guess I need to give documentation on this bird.Please check out my 2nd etsy shop called blackraven1089 in the sold area back in april to see the birds listing. I had enjoy making him, but my hutches where selling good so I had to stop. If you have ready earlier blogs I use the money I make off my miniatures to pay for my son's medical bills. So one thing lead to another and I never was able to create anymore until now. I started to go through my sketch pad and I starting to put together some of the miniatures I wanted to create a long time ago.
I don't know about you, but it's kind of nice looking back at all the old drawing of things I've done and things I still need to do.

How can this not be fun

I was ask to help purchase gifts for all the children coming to the carpenter union Christmas party. I guess the guys don't like to do this.
Come on, you get a certain amount in a check and a number of children and you go to Toy R Us and you go by gifts for all the kids. How can that not be fun!!!

They couldn't believe I would like to do this; that they told my husband that I can do it for now on out.

They just don't know what fun is.
