I knew he was one step away from.....

This morning there was a brief story on National Public Radio about nativity scenes from Naples, Italy with Barack and Michelle Obama included in the lineup.

the butts have it!

I always feel flattered when someone includes my work in their Etsy Treasury. If you don't know what an Etsy Treasury is, it's when someone puts together a collection of 12 things on a theme and displays them on one page. Sometimes those treasuries are chosen to be featured on the front page of Etsy, which many consider to be an honor.

Well today I got included in the most unusual theme ever, called "Does This Make My Butt Look Big?" One of my protesting Santas was chosen, and it's really interesting to see the way that the theme of butts was interpreted. Case in point, some things are plays on the catchphrase used in the description of the treasury, like this one that says "Does this Scarf Make my Butt Look Big?" Another submission is handmade goat milk soap, a more indirect connection, but I think it works.

Brand new work at the Museum of Contemporary Craft

My last special show of the year is now on display--I created another holiday scene with even more picketing Santas! More penguins, but these ones are ravenously hungry! Partridges in Pear Trees! And a train bringing presents to all the good girls and boys. It's all part of the best holiday sale in town at the Museum of Contemporary Craft. If you're a Museum member, you will receive 10% savings on all items in The Holiday Shop and The Gallery.
