*snort* *snort*... *sizzle*

Friggin finally! I've got something new in my shop! Custom orders aside, its been forever since i listed a new shell in my shop.

And today I'm devoting it to the push-faced breeds. Behold - a pug and a frenchie :)


Man, those wrinkles are a challenge! Easy to outline, not easy to shade. I think her ears look a little funny, but overall I like how this chick came out :) She's got that "innocent" look on her face that all pugs master because they want whatever you're eating.


And this is the french bulldog. He's got such a serious look on his face. I think he needs a name. I'll call him "Robert".

What's cool about this shell is that its got some cool weathering. The upper left corner of it has a whole lot of teeny little holes. Who knows what this clam went through in life. Realistically those pores probably appeared as the shell aged, long after the clam was no longer attached to it. But anyway its pretty cool.

-----------------------
subject change - i've realized something odd about Etsians. They apparently love crochet bacon. Yes that's right. Crochet bacon. Its the most necessary thing I have ever heard of, lol.

but really, for fun, do a search in the handmade category of "crochet bacon". A whole number of pieces will show up.

Here is an "economy" priced bacon piece by yummypancake. Yes, you CAN shop for your crochet bacon by price, lol.

spidercamp makes a simple yet elite crochet bacon slice, aptly titled "Pocket Bacon, Seriously the Dumbest Thing I Have Ever Made But You Guys Seem to Like It".

Now if you REALLY love bacon, you might want to wear it! reddhynes makes that possible with this "kosher and vegan friendly" bacon wristband!

If wristbands are not your thing, you might want to try a scarf! reddhynes makes this option available to you!

But if you're gonna wear bacon, you might as well go all out and include eggs and toast. This set comes with a bacon scarf, an egg hat and a toast bag. worthysoycandles brings you this whole set that is totally customizable. Have breakfast your way. ...on you. And I mean that in a very somber literal sense.

I saved the best for last. Its the crochet plushie creepy breakfast monster by yummypancake! He's got a toast body, an egg head, sausage arms and of course bacon legs! Alas, no syrup is included with this guy.

I find this all very strange, somehow. The need to wear bacon. Or to have a piece of crocet bacon just sitting there. I prefer... edible bacon. But uhhhh not judging anyone here. I found those pieces very amusing :P

YAY! Great job on the pug-nosed breeds. I think they came out perfectly, and you really captured the look and spirit of those gorgeous breeds.

I dunno about the bacon, though... weird! I'm glad you keep me in the loop, though! :)
