Woodland Park Zoo Giraffe Carousel
It's been so long since I uploaded anything I felt I had to post something! I found this photo from our 2007 trip to the Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle. There is a carousel but I don't remember if it has both horses and wild animals, or if there are two separate carousels. It is a really lovely zoo to visit with thoughtful environments for animals. I would love to go again - they have a big budgie aviary house that you can go inside :-)

Hi friends and watchers, I just wanted to write a new year's message and hope you had a great holiday season filled with the people, pets and things you love! I was busy in November and December with Christmas craft sales, making Christmas cards and adding new cutting files to my Etsy shop. I guess you can't be everywhere at once! I'm looking forward to another year at the comic expo, making new entries for the Calgary Stampedes Arts & Crafts show and maybe I'll get around to doing some art for myself!
Grazing Pinto Mare Scherenschnitte Papercut
I started this 8.5x11" piece last year and finally finished it. 8.5x11" on cardstock and it's for sale in my Etsy shop too - www.etsy.com/ca/listing/461690…

The original drawing on the back is destroyed in the cutting process.

Bird Feathers SVG Cuttable File
Forgot to upload this new file available in my Etsy shop - www.etsy.com/ca/listing/450264… Package includes a PDF, SVG and WPC for Pazzles. My packages due double duty as clip art, stencils, laser cutting and embroidery! Each feather was based on one molted by my cockatiel :-)

Onward Horseshoe Scherenschnitte
This ambitious three layer papercut was one of my entries for the Stampede Western Showcase this year in the arts and craft section. It did not place, but I am still dang proud of it! It took hours to design and cut and three and a half hours to assemble. I was sweating bullets, I tell ya! Definitely one of a kind...I won't be doing this again :-D

It was inspired by horseshoe frames where they are welded all together. The two top layers have 12 horse horses and the rear layer has 36. You'll note that these numbers divisible by four - literally hoof beats :-D I borrowed Calgary's civic motto because the layers reminded me of gears and the cyclic nature of prairie life. They also look like gears, representing Albertan's industriousness nature. So much can be read into the piece from the disrupted symmetry of the frame with horses as symbols of individuality and togetherness and past generations through the colour progression. The original was cut by hand with scissors and a knife from cardstock and it measures about 12x12".
