Pig and Wheel

      I love well done miniatures. Anything that is tiny and looks just like the life-sized version makes me really happy. When I saw the chair that Terri Wright donated to Mares In Black as a giveaway piece, I wanted it. 
      I didn't win it. 
      But last week I was working on a separate transaction with Terri and she mentioned she could make me a chair. I was really excited by the idea of a PINK chair! Even better (to me) than the one I didn't win. I chose this super cute pink plaid fabric. Terri made my chair and when it arrived I needed to take a picture. With no (dressed) dolls handy I grabbed my miniature pig. Originally I tried to get a photo with both of my miniature pigs but the black pig did not want to photograph well. But this one was adorable! I sent it to Terri to let her know my package had arrived. For anyone that is interested in Terri's work you can check out her facebook page, Priam Costumes, or she is on Instagram @priamcostumes. Trust me, you want to go check out her work!
    Speaking of work, I did some too! I finally finished my color wheel of cross country vests. And not just the vests, but also the watches and medbands. I really enjoyed taking this photo. After I got this done, I packaged them all up and added them to my live sale stock. Next I think I will try to make a doll or two and then I am thinking I might work on some saddle bags. I haven't quite decided yet what I want to do. 
     This past week at school was not overly taxing. We had midterms so, other than Tuesday, the kids were only there for half days. Since I am a para, I didn't have to correct any exams so I spent the second half of the days seeing if anyone needed help, but mostly visiting people. Next week will start 3rd term so I am sure I will have more to do then. But we are barreling towards the end of the year, especially for the seniors. They only have a little more than 3 months left. That's just crazy! After the seniors leave I don't know what I will do. Most of my kids are seniors. One class has 3 juniors in it. That's it. So I will see what they have me do. Maybe they will let me go to Life Skills. That would be awesome!
