And on another topic...
I'm going to be working on a new video with the 3 elves I just made.
I'm working on the script right now, trying to figure out if it's going to be kid friendly or not.
It's harder than you think to keep it clean, yet still make it laughable funny.
Poop humor always works, but will still need to keep it "nice"...not that poop is nice.
So off to work I go...

I thought about it, figured out how I could make the antlers, and then it suddenly hit me.
Why make just a deer puppet when I can make a Christmas REINdeer puppet.
BOOYAH! Here's what I made.
I am just so diggin' this puppet. I especially like the scarf...I'm actually thinking of making myself a scarf. And then I thought, "Well, if you're going to have a reindeer you just HAVE to have an elf." So I came up with this little guy. I'm almost finished with him. He doesn't have eyes; just shaggy bangs, because he's a bit of a rebel. And I'm not sure if I'm going to stick with the "blonde" hair or give him brown...just not sure. And I still need to make some ears for him. He actually reminds me of a thin, hairy Ziggy.
But I finally, FINALLY found some peach fleece to make "skin"...took me forever to find it. Anyway, I'll be busy making more puppets. Just wanted to show you what I was up to. I'm still trying to think of a way to make a snowman puppet. I know how to make his head, but the body is still a puzzle to me. But I'll be adding my reindeer (Reggie is his name) to my shop tomorrow. Totally cool!
So thanks for tuning in! Tootles...Theresa

This is a custom puppet I'm working on for a really nice lady in Canada. I'm also working on a princess puppet for her too. I'm still testing the waters with people puppets. They're a bit more time consuming but they do look pretty cute.
Anyway, I'm still working on other puppets. Taking Thanksgiving week off to make some more.

So I just felt the need to post, because not posting is kind of rude...well, not "rude" really but I figured people like to know what's going on and I at least have to let everyone know I haven't fallen off the face of the planet.
And I really want to make another video but just haven't had the time or the equipment. My brother-in-law gave me his first generation Flip Camera (totally awesome and generous of him). I can't seem to get it to work on my computer though...Phooey! And Quick Time has totally messed up my regular camera so I can't transfer my videos to Movie Maker...double Phooey!
So hopefully in the next few months there will be some movement in my shop.
Thanks and will post again soon with some puppet pictures!!

I have been busy today. Here is the pink dragon I've been working on. She's almost done. I need to finish attaching the scales on her back and attach the wings.
Now here's something I've had brewing in the back of the ol' noggin for awhile. A bookworm. It turned out pretty cute I think. This one is my prototype. I'm trying to find a good way to keep the glasses on his head without them falling off when you're manipulating the puppet. Plus I'm using a different puppet pattern and there's a foam skull involved. So I'll keep tweaking him until I get him exactly right before I add him to my shop.

It kinda reminds me of Freddy's sweater from the Nightmare on Elm Street movies, but technically Freddy's sweater was red and green, so really it's not the same. Anyway, I'll have to finish fully attaching his ears, eyes and tail and then add some hair and he'll be done.
I'm still working on the rest of the crew!! Thank goodness Christmas is still "sort of " far away. Don't blink! It'll be here before we know it!
Until next time!

I am on the brink of finishing my UnderDog puppet. The only think missing is his little tuft of hair at the top! Here's a picture of what he looks like. I am soooo stoked! I can't wait to list him in my shop!
I'm also almost finished with my super chicken...or Captain Cluck...or whatever I'll name him. He's pretty cute too...I'll get him listed shortly. Anyway, just wanted to keep my peeps up to date on what I'm working on!

Well, here's my duck I just finished...just haven't gotten him listed yet. Read below on what else is going to be showing up soon...
I finished a girl snake. She's super cute (and I totally forgot to take a picture of her).
I have 4 Foozy Bugs ready to go (they just need feathers).
So here's a list of what I have cut and are awaiting assembly:
A one eyed one horned flying purple people eater (actually I have 2 of these cut out)
2 Dragons (1 boy and 1 girl)
A Tan Girly Bunny
A Green Dog (this is an experiment - I'm hoping he turns out cute as I think he's going to)
2 More Aliens
OHMIGOSH! And Underdog! I can't wait to finish him. I almost want to sell him for a million dollars because I think I'm in love with this little guy. I can't wait to see how he turns out.
So what other stuff do I have up and coming?
More Puppies (everyone just loves the puppies) and they are so darn cute. Just sold 2 yesterday! Boo-Yah!
I have a Boy Snake in the works...I guess I should have listed him up at the top because I have him cut out.
And more people puppets (even though they're more time consuming to make) but I just found some peach fleece that looks more like a flesh color. So I will definitely be experimenting with that!
I guess that's it for now.
