Allow me to introduce you to my uncle...& yours!
"UNCLE SAM" who is 22 inches tall, loaded w/ charm and gentle reminders to help me to feel such gratitude for our beautiful country in spite of our horrendous high gas prices...& other political issues & concerns.
I look at Uncle Sam & Im blasted with excitement TO vote this coming November....
I say a silent prayer of thanks & ask for a safe return for our brave U.S. Troops still far away fighting for our freedom, our rights, our safety.
Sam has flax seed hair, I used real 100% cotton right off the bud for his bushy eyebrows, mustache, and fluffy goat-tee. I dabbed a pinprick of glitter right in the center of his bright baby blues that were painted with both acrylics and artists pencils. His nose was needle sculpted as was his mouth. His Flannel jacket sits comfortably over his cotton shirt sprinkled w/ teeny stars. His pants are sewn from red & white ticking, and hes sporting black painted boots tied with a piece of patriotic fabric strip. Hes gently rubbed and stained with my secret blend of primitive goodies, and his red, white, & blue yo yo button holders show off his gold plated buttons with stars on them. His stained tag proudly states his birth place...."AMERICA" & a small round tag on his shoulder announces his name "Sam"
Sam is a one of a kind "Scaredy Kat FolkHeart" design and hes dated & signed.
I am in the process of birthing his younger twin brother which will be similar as they share the same D.N.A. but his brothers attire will differ a bit to keep their Mama from gettin bored!
I am going to include shipping in the price of this delightful Uncle Sam so if anyone is interested, or would just like to stop by and say hello, please feel free to email me. Ill leave my addy at the end of this entry.
I hope you get a kick out of Sam and although my work is one of a kind unless otherwize stated, Im proud and humbled to say that because Ive learned so much from studying so many of you, that I cannot say this is "Mine alone" when it was all of you who continue to inspire & encourage me to tap into; the best thats yet to be.
