Elephant wants to play.

It turns out that making finger puppets is a very portable craft. I made this elephant while hanging out at an archery event.

Two new puppets

I finished up the mousie and the second butterfly.

Little Mousie Puppet Video

Keep in mind the complications of doing the puppet in the left hand while filming with the right hand. Plus I have no editing software, so this is without any editing whatsoever.

I just found out there is a review process that takes a few hours. I don't know if they are just reviewing it to make sure it is family friendly or if they judge by quality, but hopefully it will pass review even though it is my first attempt ever at submitting a video to metacafe.

Update: Well, the good news is it's working. The bad news is somehow in the uploading it lost the ending. At the ending it says "Little mousie signing off." Drat. Oh well, I guess I should enjoy it for what it is.

One Eyed Jack

I find him endearing.

Puppet Making

All the finger puppets I've been randomly working on are finally coming together. It's so nice to see all their personalities pop out.

I'm making 2 new fashionista finger puppets. All dolled up in their bright pink hair and neon lipstick, they are going out clubbing.

All I have to do is glue the lips and noses on. By the way, has anyone seen my glue? I just used it the day before yesterday.

Flickr Puppetry Goodness

If you are on Flickr, you can visit my Tricksy Puppets. I list new things there all the time. I finally gave my puppets their very own "SET".

Four friends

I just listed 4 new finger puppets in my Etsy Shop this morning. Work before pleasure eh? I hope someone likes them as much as I do. I think I like the frog the best. I wonder why I made 3 birds instead of 3 frogs. Maybe I think of birds being in flocks and frogs being alone. Who can figure out the artistic mind?

Finger Puppets

Not a puppet but...

I was taking photos of my newest finger puppets and the neighbor's car had a Jack in the Box antenna ball on it, so I thought, "Wouldn't it be neat to make my own antenna ball." I named him Bob, and I think I can use that idea to make a puppet head soon. So I figure Bob will get stolen or maybe blow off sooner or later (probably sooner) so I will have to enjoy him while he's around.

Crocheted Birdy Finger Puppet

I just finished this little birdy.

Knitted Bunny Puppet

Here is the start of the knitting bunny rabbit puppet. I have a long ways to go. But I worked on it some today.
