Wanda and her hair

Wanda wanted to do something different with her hair, but was unsure what to do. She went to the stylist and decided that having multiple colors would help make her unique. So, the hair stylist put some pink, orange and purple in her hair.

When she looked in the mirror she couldn’t believe her eyes! She sure would be unique now!

This has to be one of the most entertaining puppets I have made, especially making it head bang and having hair fly all over the place.

Blue the Goat

Meet Blue the goat. He is very loving and does exactly what you want him to do.

I didn’t intend on making a goat but when I was making the ears and had showed my husband he had said that it would just need little horns and it would be perfect. I rolled my eyes at him and then I took a look at the puppet and decided that Blue would be perfect as a goat.

What am I doing?

Have you ever had an inspiring moment for a cute project, then when you admire what you have done so far, you realize that #1 you didn’t write down what you did #2 there are certain parts that need to be done first or #3 you forget to measure to make sure it fits.

First off, I wanted to make a hand puppet where you move the hands of the puppet with your fingers. The idea is to be able to fit 2-3 fingers into the head portion and one finger in each of the arms, but I wanted it to look a little more like a person rather person wearing a sheet. I was attempting to make a neck and a round looking head… and well, I have had to take a little break from project because I have done all three of the above.

I didn’t write down what I was doing, so I would know what adjustments need done.

I started to make the head and was working on getting the area for the arms, only to realize that I didn’t even make arms yet.

I also didn’t measure and had already made adjustments to it because not even one finger could fit into the head part. I now can uncomfortably fit two of my fingers in the head.

If I continue to try to salvage what I have done so far, it might turn into a monstrosity

I think it’s back to the drawing board for this one.

Purple Cow

During the first week of orientation, they had discussed the Purple Cow, because of my commute I have been listening to a variety of audio books and decided to finally listen to this one. Cows may be interesting to look at for a short time, but after seeing many cows they tend to blend together and they all look very similar, they then become less interesting to look at. This book discusses about standing out and being a Purple Cow, even if it is difficult, because you will have a better chance to succeed.

A purple cow is like doing something that makes you unique to the competition. You won’t get noticed if your doing the same thing as everyone else. Being a Purple Cow is doing or being something that does not go unnoticed.
