My Last Figure for the Year

This will be the last papermache figure for the year from Monkey-Cats Studio. It is a snowman, but unlike the other snowmen this season, this little guy has a human nose, and not a carrot to try to breath through. He is also dressed not only in a plaid scarf, but in a little green vest as well...which my sister said looked a tad tight like he had one snowflake too many! Poor little "Roller," he just can't give up those snow cones and rolls in the fresh snow. He is a friendly sort and has his right hand up waving at you from his frosty home.

"Roller" is carrying his little cousin "Ice Cycle" and a candy cane to swirl in their hot chocolate at the end of the day...another reason perhaps why "Roller's" vest is on the snug side. "Roller's" arms and hands are wire and can gently be moved to change their position.

Lots of little details in this fellow from his peppermint swirl button to the highlights in "Ice Cycle's" coal features and his little wooden carrot nose.

"Roller and Ice Cycle" have sold and will be moving to a warmer climate...they are thrilled and so am I!!

Have a great day!

Thanks Brandi...I learned this last month that I have reached the extent of the height for the hats. It begins to mess with the balance beyond this point for the size figure I make. Time to make bigger figures--HA!!

Thank you Lynda!!

Thank you NikNik...I think!!

Pam I am taking a little time off. The pace was nuts this past fall and so I may mix clay, but I'm not busting my fanny to finish any more figures this year. 2009 is done for MCS.

Thank you so much Jackie. Loving your offerings this month and so sweet of you to blog about the little elf I made you last year. You are such a sweetie!!

Have a wonderful holiday season all!!!
