A Few Interesting Softies

Pin It Now!
Have you ever seen the Cornell University clock tower?
Apparently, in October1997, someone decided, as a prank, to climb to the top, and place a hollowed out, preserved pumpkin on the very top! It was up there until March 1998, when crane operators accidently bumped it, and it fell some 20 feet to some scaffolding. It was still intact from being frozen though!

So there's your history lesson for the day :)
I was contacted to re-create this clock tower, in cartoonish form, complete with pumpkin. Here's a photo of the McGraw Tower, itself:

Every time I see this picture, I just think "How in the world did they get all the way up there without injury?"

Anywho, here is the completed tower :)

Also, I got an email from Andrew's mom, who sent me a Santa that he drew. It's never too early to prepare for Christmas, I suppose!

Here is Andrew's drawing:

Super Cute, isn't it?

Here is his santa softie

Where are my reindeer?

Two Sweet Girls

Pin It Now!
What an incredibly fun week this has been!
My birthday was on the 8th, and it seems like everyone, in their own little way, made sure that I felt special on my day.
Thank you all!
I am so blessed!

So, amidst the fun and celebration, I made a "Rainy Day" Softie for a sweet little girl in Missouri.

Here is the drawing of the "Rainy Day" girl
Yes, that is a red-handled umbrella :)

Here is the completed toy

Of course, we had to fit her with her very own rain boots!

Also, I got a very interesting request to make the members of a Korean all-girl band.

So here is the photo of the band:
Now that it's uploaded, it's looking kind of washed out...Sorry!

Here is one of the girls, all done up, with pretty hair and bangs
Onward to another fun week!
This week will be a Santa and a very sweet looking fox.

Hope you all have a great week, and thank you to each of you who made my birthday special. You are SO appreciated!
