I made this for my friend Koz because I was his Secret Santa this year. He loves Steampunk and his cat Myu. I was going to make a giant Myu doll but wasn't sure how it would turn out, so I opted to do what I do best which are mushrooms and add a little Myu via magnet :)
I love giving handmade things as gifts! They get the best reactions ever :)
These are 10 ornaments I made for the 2nd Annual Small Paperfox swap. The deal is you send in 10 and get back 10 random handmade ornaments- I love it! I should have made one for myself though, forgot to... :p
A while ago, John asked me to make some story-book mushrooms for his baby. For the baby shower, I delivered. 1 storybook shroom done, 3 more to go... The Giant-shroom is about double the size of my normal mushrooms. It was a lot of fun to work on. I love the weight of it. Then the beanstalk bends and Jack is able to climb up each leaf. When John & Maegan opened the gift, the whole room filled with gasps, ooh's and ahh's. It was really sweet! Just looking at the pictures, I can still hear the sound. This is the reason I make things. They bring so much happiness to people! I love it! :D
I'm going through a tough time in my life right now so my crafting has come to a complete halt. It might be some time until you hear from me again, hopefully I'll be back sooner than later. For the time being, I have to take care of myself.
