mama and baby giraffe...





i mentioned earlier this week that i was making a pair of giraffes for our school auction. i finally finished them today (unknowingly past the deadline, oops). i chose to do a mama and baby giraffe pair because, for one thing, the giraffe is my favorite animal and for another reason, because we are lucky enough to see a darling mama and baby pair of giraffes every time we walk home from school! not only do we have two sweet babies at our zoo in the park but the giraffe exhibit can actually be seen on our path home from school. it is really the only exhibit that can be seen from outside of the zoo but the large giraffe enclosure can be seen off the path we walk on. they have been expanding it lately to include a giraffe feeding area (!!) so the exhibit inside the zoo has has actually been closed. the giraffes have been at the back of the exhibit because of this and we are fortunate to be able to stop and say hi to them almost daily! i thought this would be a fun way to celebrate our unique neighborhood at the school auction... hopefully someone else thinks so and buys them!

They're so lovely. Your work has this peaceful quality that I love.

My little brother and his girlfriend are having a baby girl in May, and they are decorating with giraffes. Hmmm....

Those a simply fantastic- I love the 'patches' on them- how touchable they look. I'm sure they'll do really well!
