Happy Thanksgiving! Well...a slightly-late Happy Thanksgiving. If your holiday was as packed with visiting family and driving as mine was you haven't had time for much else.
|At work--my paints and her animals|
This week, before making the drive down to visit my family, I got the chance to visit Laura Johnston of LeAnimale in Raleigh, North Carolina. LeAnimale is a shop filled with wonderful little polymer clay creatures that can both be worn and kept as little totems. We mostly worked together (more work on her part than mine) and talked shop.
While there, my little llama totem from LeAnimale got a new bath in varnish.
Laura makes all of her own canvas gift pouches for her totems and necklaces--a time consuming labor of love which really makes for a nice touch to her packaging, but takes up a fair amount of work space.
Her little line of fox faces all ready to be strung on chains for her signature necklaces looked so sweet I just want a handful of them!
Laura and I at the end of our visit (check out my sweet llama necklace). I really need to remember to tip my chin down for pictures, ha! It's one of those things you think of only after seeing a picture of yourself next to someone who is super photogenic like Laura.
