I think just about everyone knows my passion for polymer clay. In recent months, I took to making little animals. For me, it was a return to my childhood love of making little critters out of PlayDoh. (And come to think about it, my love of little critters in general….guinea pigs, bunnies, ducklings….you know the little girl – a stuffed animal rather than a doll for play.) I have recently added a couple of my “little buddies” to my Etsy site. And it got me thinking…Who else indulges their whimsical animal side?
I didn’t have to look very far to find someone else….I adore Nancy’s (Wyverndesigns) hand painted owl! What a glorious fellow he is!
She also has hand sewn owl ornaments:
So sweet! (And what a great stocking stuffer!)
But wait…..I found more owls!!!!! These hand crochet birdies were created by TLYarnCrafts:
Just so you don’t think owls are the only critters out there….how about some thing completely different?
ColtPixy has been sculpting her snails for a couple of years now. (I have a little collection of them myself) They are warm, whimsical, and, well, delightfully strange!:
Check out more of her work at http://www.coltpixy.com/
I’ve got time for just more here…
A little sparkle for your day! This kitty was created by FantasyClayStore and could be made into either a magnet or brooch!
I hope you enjoyed my selection of animals. If these have sparked your interest, take a look at the huge variety of handmade critters available – perfect for decorating, gift giving and enjoying!
