This is the portrait for the Hello Bully auction.
I've really been dragging butt on getting it done.
I'm pretty happy with most of it...
But the nose is PISSING ME OFF.
I alway have trouble with noses. But if I go away, and come back with fresh eyes, it'll be ok.
So I had to get away from it for tonight. I'll go at it again tomorrow.
Besides, my hand was killing me. It starts to get cramped after a couple hours of burning.

As I was working on it, I wasn't too happy with it. But I think it's ok.
Not one of my best peices that's for sure... but I haven't been doing much wood burning lately... might be a little rusty.

Well, Wal*mart hasn't restocked their wooden stars.
Fortunately I have enough to fo "just" the great grand children of Jeff's grand parents.
I was also going to do his Uncle's kids, cause he has 3 little ones... But, I've never even met them, and they are cousins... so I think great grandchildren is a good cut off.
I was also going to do the grandkids on my side. Brianna, Nina, Tyler, Shane & Natalie... But I have to find more stars. :(
By august next year, I hope I have my own scroll saw. Then I can make my own shapes and not have to depend on a stupid store to carry what I need.
I'd really like to make a whole series of ornaments and try to sell them in local gift shops that specialize in crafty stuff.
We'll see what happens.
I'll post pics of these ornaments when they are done. :)
