For my friend Max! Need to get this mailed out today!
He looks ready to spread holiday cheer!
I love all of your creature creations so, so much.
He is amazing!
He looks absolutely magical!
Every little detail about this is absolutely amazing! That beard! The tree! Those shoes! The bag! So adorable!!! I love the little bead garland too.
That is truly a work of art - you have amazing skills!!
Amazing times a billion. The holly on his cap is the detail that seals it for me. So many tiny details. You can tell you really love making these - and that makes us love seeing them!
Oh, my giggles! He’s amazing and magical!
He is absolutely charming!
Can I just take a sec to highlight the wee little ring stack toy?
What a sweet little fellow!
The colors on the cloak are so rich and deep. I love it. And that little bag of toys is the cutest!
Thank you !!! (blushes)
This mouse is a bit taller than my usual mice - I thought that was appropriate for a Father Christmas! I carefully chose my colors and of course (because I always have trouble with my camera and lighting) some of the details don’t show. The under garment has some ornamental stitching on it.
The Ring Stack Toy are all buttons and an ornamental tooth pick (and paint).
The blocks are based upon Robert Indiana’s pop art image.
The beard mask worked a lot better then the original idea which was more like a warped eyeglass frame!
Max likes to set up his Christmas things early so this mouse is actually late, but I think he will be pleased!!
Oh my goodness!!! This is a work of art!
Congratulations! Your charming Father ChristMouse is a Featured Project this week!
Oh Thank you!!! It’s like an early Christmas present!!
Oh, the mouse is so darling! The teensy toys are adorable! I liked being able to see your progress in the other thread. It turned out marvelous.
I am not always good about taking photos “in progress”. I have to remind myself to take my phone to my work table. Unlike most of the world, my phone is off and most often in my purse because I see it as a tool for emergencies. I do have a Nikon in my work area, but it takes more setting up. A good many of my brothers have been photographers (not professionally, but they take photos a lot - John and Jim both had a dark rooms when I was young). I “can’t see” with a camera (if that makes any sense at all). I read up on them. I’ve got a light box and tripod and this and that and I cannot see with a camera. Basically I just hope I will get a good photo.
