I received a phone call today asking me to create some Santas for a fund raiser in Wisconsin. The fund raiser is to support women and children in need. The Santas being requested are something that I made years ago when I use to do the craft show circuit. The Santas consist of fabric, found objects and used mink coats. The mink part creeps me out a little because I have always been active in animal rights issues. But, the reality is that the coats already exist and this way they are becoming something useful rather than entering a landfill.
I really thought the Santas were behind me, but this is for a good cause and my fledgling business really can't be fussy at this point can it? Who knows, maybe I can put a new altered twist on it, maybe some vintage text.... or rusted metal...hmmmmm
