Leftovers Ghosties, Now With Pets!

We just got back from the bookstore so I have a moment to post because Nefarious is upstairs reading. The Monstessori system did a great job both teaching her to read and in instilling a love of literature — although that could just as easily be genetic — and she is as voracious a reader as I remember being as a child. She’s extremely fast as well, at least as fast a reader as me, so initially I doubted that she was even reading, thinking she was just faking it and skimming at best… but I tested her comprehension, to her great irritation and outrage, and was pleasantly surprised that she had read and retained every word.

So yeah, I have a moment to post, so… Hissssssssss! I’ve decided to start making pets for the little guys. My first attempt is this tiny yet scale-relevantly huge striped fellow. I have a puppy that’s currently hardening and waiting for paint that is outrageously cute that I’ll likely post next. Even taking into account that Caitlin and Nefarious occasionally pilfer the ones they like best, I’m building up a good collection.

I’m afraid those cannot be zoomed in on but I don’t think there’s any desperate need.

    I love the look on the purple one’s face! It’s really funny in the second picture.
