Hawaiian Bird

Bennett (age 7) has a little brother who will be 3. He asked his big brother for a stuffed bird for his birthday. Bennett drew "Hawaiian Bird" and I brought him to life. They did ask me to put an eye on each side of the beak instead of all on the front.

Blue Bird / Poop Bug

This is Pip's drawing of his Blue Bird that is also a 'Poop Bug'. He is a very imaginative little boy and his mom asked for me to bring his bird/bug to life. It has 2 set's of wings...one for when it's a Blue Bird and one for when it's a 'Poop Bug'. The dots around the wings are warnings that they are very delicate! The 'Poop Bug' part that I was asked to make is hidden inside and will come out wh...
enever he wants along with the other set of legs. I was told that it has 2 legs except for the times it has 4, LOL!! I hid those away too :) Those lil' extra parts were made to be tucked in or pulled out on a moments notice!!! The shiny part on the tummy along with the dots are warnings that there are fragile eggs inside because 'everyone knows that girls have eggs'!!! I so enjoy little minds at work and it tickles me to able to bring these imaginative drawings to life!!
