I have been working on a few Elfin Scribes. I am having trouble getting good photos of them, but that is always the case. I wish I could just cram them in the scanner as I do the books. Those always come out good. I really have to work on my photography skills. If I were wealthy I would just take everything to the photographer and have him/her handle it ... in my next life I suppose. These two Elfins are my first Scribes. I have been planning on making them for quite some time, so I was very happy to get to them now. I am planning on making some of the Elfin Kings next as those were quite popular last season at Festival. I have several bases made up already for
the seated ones and I will also making a few standing ones. After that I will make a few Elfins on swings. I am running low on the marabou feathers. My color selection is rather limited at the moment, so I should place an order for them tomorrow. I went to the "Charm" wholesale house a couple of times when Tricia was visiting so I have a lot of new fun stuff to work with. A lot of the charms are new ones that I have never had before. They have such an amazing
selection that it is so hard to decide what to buy. I try always to be as practical as I can be, but it's hard when you want to buy everything they have. Not only is the stuff wonderful for these Elfins, there are about a million other wonderful things
you can use the charms for ... like jewelry ... and books .... I can't think of the rest of their possible uses right off the cuff, but I know they exist. Years ago I made several very large dolls with books and remembered how much fun it was making smaller
books. Now I have made even smaller books for these Scribes. I just used some old Japanese pages for the pages as I just really like the way it looks. The letters have such elegant shapes. I have not the slightest clue what the original Japanese book was about, although I believe it was a novel of some sort.
