Where The Wild Things Are Penguin

Where The Wild Things Are Penguin
from E to her husband T

Did you guess right? Yup, this penguin got my #1 vote!
I took a good amount of time into this project to make sure I used the correct materials, as close to Max's costume as possible. What do you think, did I come close? ;)

Penguin Favorites of 2010

Happy New Year! I hope you're having a wonderful start to 2011! :D
Before I jump into this year's resolutions and such, today, I thought I'd share my favorite personalized penguins from 2010. I'm so thankful that I was able to work with so many wonderful people despite the fact that I wasn't able to take nearly half as many orders as 2009 due to my pregnancy and maternity leave. Thank you for your patience and for letting me create your custom penguins! I'm hoping this year, I'll be able to juggle motherhood and penguin orders as gracefully as possible. ;)
Here are my top 3 favorite personalized penguins of 2010:
#3: Pineapple Penguin
#2: French Penguin
#1: Surprise!
Am I evil or what? I'll be revealing my favorite personalized penguin tomorrow! ;) Can you guess what it is? Which has been your favorite?
