Today's update:

Please take a look at my new page "Next Stop Fantasyland". On this page I share my little polymer clay sculptures that I make to exercise my hands when they are sore from hand sewing my mink pelts. Usually they are sculptures that I use for props with my mink bears but most recently when I pick up a block of clay it somehow transforms into dragons. I love dragons! Please take a look.

Valentine's day is just a month away so it is time to start thinking of making some special creations for that holiday. It is one of my favorites because I love incorporating hearts into my patterns. I went out looking for some good props that might inspire a Valentines design. I came home with these possible Valentine props (these are good but I'm still looking for more options):

I just posted my third panda from my Limited Edition "Good Fortune Panda" series. I have a short Waiting List for this panda so when I have an available panda I will contact the next collector on my list. Currently I have 6 collectors on this list and if I have enough black and champagne minks I would like to make a total of 8 Good Fortune Panda. I would like make it an 8 panda series because I read that the number 8 is symbolic of Good Fortune. So if I have enough mink to make 8 pandas I can add two more names to my Good Fortune Panda Waiting List. Email me if you would like to be on this Waiting List.

 You can see more photos of this panda on my Adoption Website

What's Next?

I'm going to take a brief break before I make my next panda. Please see my previous post about the Patisserie Teddy Bear inspiration props ... because that is what I am working on next. It will be an OOAK creation and I will be sending Adoption Invitations to every collector on my General Mailing List when it is completed.
