I've been working on this two item custom order forever, it seems. I made the first giraffe, but decided it was too delicate for a 2 year old, so I made a second giraffe to suit her a little better. They weren't the hard part, though. I've been fighting with this little lizard a bunch, and finally completed him today. Whew. He's for a girl getting her PhD working with lizards, so that put a little pressure on. She knows what this lizard should look like and I didn't want to screw it up.
Anyway, this is Betty.
And this is the lizard... his belly is blue. I think he is much more impressive in person.
Hopefully she loves them both.
