A little rooster I made for the Mexican Kitsch Swap. . . .
...a little wooden trinket box from the craft store, plus some paint, glitter (of course,) polymer clay, fabric, paper and a plastic toy rooster. (My kids will never miss it!)
This is one of a series of boxes I made for my lovely swap partner, who teaches high school Spanish. She wanted some art for her classroom, so I designed this to be handled, touched, opened and closed.
Inspiration can come from the oddest, most unexpected places. My inspiration for El Gallo? My zumba class! Yes, I'm still going, and I love, love, LOVE it. (Dropped 2 sizes so far! Yay!) Anyway, we dance to this song (and it's one of my favorite routines). . . . and it inspired the rooster box. . . .
Another rooster. . . .
The best. sauce. on. earth.
And some maybe-roosters. . . .
OK, so it's really just a gratuitous photo of our sweet chickens. But we do think there may be a rooster or two or three. I'm not sure how to tell yet, as they're still young. (I also haven't done any research on this, either.) There are a few chickens with longer tails, bigger combs, and have more color -- and act bossier than the others. I guess we'll see soon enough. . . .
So if you've made it to the end of this random post, thanks for dropping by! Have a wonderful weekend!
