Day #19: Angling for a cuppa

Watch out Nemo...
I know, I know...Today's puppet is really strange. I think it's because I was at the studio today doing some cleaning, organizing, and rearranging. After the retreat at Pocosin, I returned to the studio and everything seemed to be in a state of disarray. I also had time working in a different studio space while at Pocosin, and it made me rethink how I want my space to be arranged.The way I build puppets has been evolving, and I realized that I needed to set up the space to reflect this. It's still a work in progress, but it's progress!

But, back to the tea-ball. I made this scary angler fish using a tea ball, some wire, and lots of beads that my sister-in-law gave to me when she moved out of her condo in Boston. (Thanks, Katy!) It took a lot longer than I expected (which is, I suppose, to be expected) to finish this one. It was tricky getting in between the thin wire on the tea-ball.

I found a box full of lights...

Udderly ridiculous!

A cozy place to rest your head!

The wall we allow children to paint on during our open studios.
I did have a productive time today -- and it's the kind of productive time that will help me be more productive later this week.

  1. Love it! Great idea and so fun.

    The wall painted by children is sweet.

    Really enjoyed this post, Heidi. Congrats on getting reorganized. I could stand to do the same.
