The Wolf Strikes Progresses

Almost done, still need to clean some stuff up around the feet and touch up the paint, add a sealant then phew! I had a lot of fun working with wood this time. I think once I move out of this apartment into a home I'll consider getting a scroll saw. Until then I'm looking at some dremel tools that are supposed to work like handheld scroll saws, I wonder how well it really works though.

Need help with wording

I'm working on a new project, a wood cutout 3-D version of my piece "The Wolf Strikes." It's still a work in progress , the little wolf boy is currently drying and the base piece needs to be cut and stained but I think it's progressing nicely. My problem is I'm not really sure how to describe this piece in my listing. You could probably tell that already from myty awkward cutout 3-D thingy description. Any suggestions? What keywords would you look for when trying to find this piece? I know you ladies and gentlemen have a way with words.

Without further ado (haha typed it out ADO first, I've been stalking the Art Dolls Only blogs too much!) The original Wolf Strikes:

Busy few weeks

It's been a crazy few weeks here in South Florida. There are always things to do but it seems like every few weeks the hubs and I end up having jam packed schedules. Last weekend we had a fantastic time in Jacksonville for the Florida/Georgia game (Go Gators!). I have to say it's even more fun going to games as an alumnus than as a student. We've also had Heat games and evenings out with friends these past few weeks. Now I'm paying for my excesses with a nasty bug. Nothing as bad as swine flu thankfully but I think a few days curled up under my comforter is just what the doctor ordered. Since I've been a very bad blogger lately I have quite a bit to share

The Kite Flier

Taking to the High Seas

The Secret Life of Rabbits

And my first doll in awhile! The lovely Louise.

I have some fun ideas for some new dolls that I can't wait to get started on. It's just a balance between nursing myself and getting the work done. I love to get a jump on new ideas as soon as they're cooked when I'm still really excited about them, it seems to help propel me through the periods when my sewing machine is jamming constantly and I can't find the perfect ribbon for accents. Hopefully I'll be able to make some real strides tonight.
