a piggy card holder and I HAVE SEEN THE FUTURE
(pig by Gary Rith)
So, as I said a week ago, sometimes you need a new card holder, and a pig is called for, and voila! Happiness.
I bought this groovy new book yesterday, 500 animals, and YES I had entered the publisher's contest, and didn't get in, d#mn them, but it is a delicious book nonetheless. Sure, there is some cr#p, junk and artsy farty animals in there, but most are pretty exciting and wonderful, although it should have included me. I am not bitter. No.
OK, the future. Every winter has its theme--there were pigs a few years ago, which lingers, then elephants, a lot of hippos and zebras for me last winter, there was also some brief flirtation with unicorns on pots (I make a great unicorn, even if it is a ridiculous item to make, OK?)and nowwwwwwwwwwwww......
GNOMES. I see myself doing a lot with gnomes winter 2007-2008. I saw many gnomes in many states yesterday, and I have a few little ideas bouncing around.
