KRISTY'S MINI MENAGERIE

Hello and welcome, anybody who may come across this little blog of mine! I've just started this blog, and plan on focusing on miniatures, animals, and miniature animals. However, I'm also hoping it can be a fun place to talk about just about anything. We'll see.........

Gone Fishing

I had started making some little fishing accessories for a commission which ended up having to be canceled, so I went ahead and made a little raccoon for the set. He'll be available for sale later tonight.
I'd like to thank a couple people who's tutorials helped me tremendously. The first person is Kiva Atkinson (I used her "rainbow trout dinner" tutorial at CDHM), and the second person is Vicky Guile (I used her basket tutorial in the August AIM magazine). Though mine are far from perfect, I'd hate to think what they would look like if I didn't have these tutorials to refer to.

  3. Kristy,
    He is just wonderful!!! I am so impressed with your fish. They are very Kivaish. :-) The basket looks perfect to me. I love this little set.
    I was just outside and there are two raccoons out there. They didn't even run from me. I was just 5 feet away.

  4. Thank you so much Alma e Lia, Ewa and Catherine.
    LOL, yes worms Ewa (yuk!)
    Catherine, to call my fish "Kivaish" is the best compliment I could get, but kind of an insult for Kiva, hahaha. Thank you!
    Awwww, I wish we had raccoons nearby. Leave a raw egg out for them, they'll suck all the insides out and leave an empty, hollow shell for you the next morning.

  15. Awwww, thank you so much everybody. Tabs-I don't have an etsy shop, lol. But I just put him on my website, cdhm, oh and also on my "for sale" page here. But he's no longer available, I'm shipping him to his new home today. I'll make some different fishermen eventually - it was fun to make! :)

  17. Your fishes and basket turned out really well!! 1st try??? Mr Raccoon is the cutest :):) Did you have a tough time trying to balance him? :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. Your set is so cute! And the raccoon is so lifelike. Love them all!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Thank you Susan & Jean! :)
    Sans, yep, first try! Hopefully the next time around will be easier. He wasn't so hard to balance since he's sitting on his little behind, lol. Standing and holding the pole and net might have been a bit more tricky.

  23. OH NO! I was only 7 days at the Baltic Sea - and what happened...???!!! A new racoon! And he is already sold (no wonder - he is so absolutely SWEET!)- I'll try not to cry my eyes out.
