Sam (using the wood burner) made a bird ball like he did last year, just for fun. It's impossible to show how intricate and entwined and organic it looks in person. But here are the different sides:
Best of all, Sam made a bunny ball for me this year! Bless him. It's the best thing on our entire Christmas tree. I love it so much. When he showed it to me, I cried.
And…for the party itself, Sam made this owl. He shaped it out of Sculpey and then painted it with acrylics. I never stop being amazed at the things he can create.
