Howie the Hyena

Hello my dear friends!

Just a quick note from me. 
I am still in this very heavy-4 weeks-fulltime course but in my rare spare minutes I have found some time to make my latest creation, called 'Howie'.

Howie is a 7 inche/ 18 cm tall hyena boy. He is made of  high quality plush and filled with plastic pellets and polyester filling. Howie has a needle felted face and paws. 
His teeth and nails are made of polymer clay.

Hope you like him!

So I have finished my latest creation last night.
 It took me many, many hours.
It's a ferret called 'Roscoe'. 
Roscoe is a happy, jumping ferret. I used to have 3 ferrets. Rakker, Boefie and Tijger. 
I was thinking about them lately and then I found  this piece of faux fur which just looked like the fur of my ferrets. 
Roscoe is about 15 inches/ 38 cm tall from his nose to his tall. Roscoe has sculped teeth. He is wired and filled with plastic pellets and polyester filling. 

I will start a 4 week fulltime course tomorrow. I am looking forward to it but I am also afraid that I will not have enough time and energy to make something new in these 4 weeks.
Because of my health problems my energylevel is very low.
I will think of all of you and grap my self together and just do it!
Many hugs,
xx Mel

Well, here is 'Roscoe'

My feature in BärReport Magazine

Hi there,

I am featured in the new edition of the German BärReport Magazine! It is my first interview and feature in a magazine!
I am working hard to finish my latest creation today. Maybe later today - or tommorow I can uploads the finished results. I am not gonna tell yet what it is going to be...
On monday I will start a 4 week fulltime course for my job. I am afraid I won't have much time and energy to make something in that time. :( I will try anyway. :)

To get back on the feature in the BärReport magazine; here are some pictures.

Hugs, Mel
