Naturally, we had a really fun time at the zoo. It would appear that I have a fixation on taking pictures of animals making funny faces. I'll start with one of my favorites, the bald eagle, who came right up to the glass so that I could photograph him with his tongue hanging out.
It cracks me up how angry he looks angry in this one, like he's yelling at his wife or something.
We loved the petting zoo!. I think goats are just the sweetest creatures.
This one was very wise.
These guys were so tiny. I would estimate they were about the size of small Chihuahuas, and they also happened to be incredibly cute.
It looks like a toy, but it's a real poison dart frog. It wasn't even in a cage either, so there were signs everywhere saying "Please don't touch the frogs, or else you will foam at the mouth and die" or something like that...
That's only the tip of the iceberg , but I'll stop there and move on to what's been happening at my craft desk lately. My friend Estela and her man are in the process of opening up a brand new shop in Enid, Oklahoma, called The Felt Bird, and she asked me to send her some of my cupcake necklaces to sell there. She wanted them in bright colors, so I happily obliged.
I saw this funky picture frame at a thrift store and thought it would be perfect for displaying these. How does it look?
I can't wait to have my creations sold at such an amazing little shop. If you'd like to see the progress of this endeavor, come check out The Felt Bird Blog. They're renovating the space right now and taking lots of fun pictures, so it should be an interesting ride!
