all of my lovely animals are almost gone. i have a few new ones since i took this photo, but half of these are gone now. my "studio" is looking a little bare without my animal friends. it's exciting and a little sad to say goodbye. i just sent off 4 animals to the u.k. this past week... which is funny to me, since i have never been there myself (i'm embarrassed to admit). i hope they enjoy their little adventure... it's kind of cool to think of these little creatures i've created going off into the world! maybe they'll send me a postcard.
