Hand Puppet Crazy '06

These are some of the puppets I made in the pass. I haven’t made many since. Some polymer clay finger puppets recently. These hand puppets in the caption, can fit most of your arm too. I have more detailed hand puppets that I both made and bought. I bought a couple of Folkmanis puppets. Maybe, just maybe...I will start using them and tape a video for this blog, or should I say it is, 2011 Obsession Craze #1.  We will see, you never know I might see a shinny thing go by to distract me.

My husband remade The Elvis' 1956 Song, Blue Suede Shoes, for me in a mupptized voice. I created an Elvis Bear 1950’s style to sing the song. The bear was a Build a Bear that I turned into a hand puppet. It worked out well, I made a mouth for it and took out some stuffing out of the back and I was ready to make my puppet sing and dance. Much to our kids dismay. Oh well, they are 20 and 17 now so, they must be over that embarrassed at their parents phase. Right???

Puppy Love: Dusty Rose

Our dog Dusty Rose has been with us for one year. She is an eight years old Shih Tzu. She was with a family for seven years, but they had a baby who was allergic to the dog. My daughter had dog sat while the family went on vacation the summer of 2009. We all fell in love with Dusty. At the time, we didn’t know the family was considering another home for her. I found out several weeks later when I was talking to my sister and telling her how much we missed her. My sister new the family was looking and several weeks later they drop Dusty off for the last time to her new home. Dusty came in with such a greeting of running from place to place with such vigor. Then ending with getting up on the couch and howling. It was the cutest thing ever.

We love bring her on car rides. She loves her face in the wind. We brought her on

pupcation this summer to hotel in New Hampshire. I love dressing her and she loves being dressed. Most of the time it just her Puppia harness (Puppia is the company I bought from on, Dusty hates the rain, but she loves her rain jacket, Halloween is a given. Dusty has been a hot dog and and angel. Last year we passed out dog bones to the neighborhood dogs.

She has been such a blessing to our family. My husband, loves walking her. The best part is when he tells her it is time for the walk. Oh boy! she starts skipping and acting like a puppy. It so great watching her and petting her it warms the heart.
