Elmer the Orca

Sorry for the length of time between posts. With one thing and another we’ve had some projects in the works but hadn’t finished anything until now.

So, without further ado, I introduce you to Elmer the Orca! He’s one of the cubist animals that I came up with after creating Ari.

He’s comfortable in the snowy arctic with nothing but white all around him…


or in the tropics with the deep blue beneath him.

Ari the Lion

This year, when Sean and I put together shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child, I decided to sew a stuffed animal to include in one of the shoeboxes. It needed to be small, simple, durable, and cute. After sketching out some concepts, I came up with the idea for a cubist lion – and Ari the Lion was created.

Ari is a very friendly little guy.

He loves cuddling up on the bed.

He loves being held.

Ari prowling in his “natural habitat.” He looks fierce, but…

he sometimes gets stuck when he’s exploring and needs rescued.

Ari loves playing with his tennis ball! He can’t wait to meet his kid through Operation Christmas Child.
