Fall is definately here in New England and as the leaves are turning and falling, the creepy prim critters are in full swing here at Olde Crow Seed Co!!After a L O N G, injury filled week, I finally got this creepy critter finished and listed over on Ebay.

New Halloween Critters!!

Just finished and listed several new Halloween/fall critters over on Ebay. Halloween and Fall is one of my favorite seasons to create for as it's so much fun to think of creepy and weird things to do to my exsisting stable of creatures. :O) Of course, leading the way...front and center is my Halloween version of my Original Primitive Clam.....Count Clamula. :-P Actually, he's a little scary in "real life", LOL, as he's sitting here on my mantel and all I can see in the early morning shadows is his red eyes peeking out from behind his black and red shell. How a clam could be scary??? Who knows, but he can be at times. :O)

This pumpkin head make do/nodder always cracks me up when I look at him. He's one whimsical, silly creation. :)

My elephant witch is back for this Halloween season. This year her new addition is her pumpkin bucket she's holding. I added a flicker bulb inside which makes it look really cool at night!

My primitive Owl was new this summer and I loved how she turned out so much that I made another version of her as a Halloween witch, complete with a set of wooden witches' books. :)

All these critters, and some others, are now over on ebay ready to be adopted!
Now off to play outside with my boys!!!

till later!

New Items!!!

Just listed a few birds over on Ebay which close this coming weekend.

Always wanted to create an ostrich but it kept getting pushed to the back burner for quite a while. Well, I finally got him drawn up, sewn and finished and really like how he turned out. He's quite the tall one, LOL, and is very "commanding" sitting on my hutch in the living room. LOL

Instead of adding tons of feathers and wings and detail, I decided to just keep him very simple and prim. I'm glad I went that way as he's one prim and grungy ostrich. :)

I don't think there are many Primitive Blue Footed Booby Dolls out there, LOL.

I always thought these guys are so unique with there normal shaded feathers and then their baby blue feet. :) You can't help but love their given name. LOL My youngest boys just laugh every time they say it. :)

After watching a nature show with my son, Chase, he suggested that I should create a Puffin doll as they are so unique and very similar in "style" to the Toucan which I have loved creating in the past. Their beaks are alot of fun to create and paint. LOTS of paint went into this guy. Seems like a Puffin lover has already set sights on adopting him over on Ebay so he'll be on to his new home soon!

I'm really happy to be starting some Halloween dolls/critters now, although I'm in NO HURRY for summer to end and for Fall to arrive. :) "Jack" is a pumpkinhead doll that originated at OCSC last Fall. Each one has been slightly different and seems to have it's own personality. :) Very prim and very much a Halloween staple for any prim home!

No Halloween home would be complete without a Piranha! :) This guy was a blast to create and actually came out looking alot scarier than I thought it would. LOL Thank goodness it's teeth are just frayed burlap and not the real thing!!! For it's tag, I thought to switch up the common statement of "its bark is worse than its bite" by putting "my bite is worse than my bark". These guys definately don't have the size and outward appearance of being nasty little ones, but then........you can't ignore their mouths and what they can do with them.......LOL A couple of years ago, I created a scary deep sea fish for the Halloween season, so I figured I'd tap the waters of the Amazon for this season's scary fish creation. :)
All of these critters are now up for adoption over on Ebay........
Till later!

Bird of Paradise

Just listed this Bird of Paradise doll/make do over on Ebay.
I was inspired by seeing the male bird of paradise on tv one night and thinking how flamboyant they are! LOL When doing some research for this fellow, I learned that the male bird of paradise comes in all colors and many different extravagant plumage. They're truly amazing to learn about and beautiful to look at.

Lots of new critters!!!

Got lots of new critters that I just listed over on Ebay.....found this awesome iron, rusty bathtub and thought that's perfect for one of my slugs. :) So here he is....Rub a dub dub, one slug in the tub!! :)

Couldn't resist making one of my snakes and giving him a patriotic twist.

And back from hiatus is Seaho' Sally and Seahorse Sam! I so enjoyed making these two when they first premired a couple of years ago and it was just as fun creating them again!!

Raccoon Rob was a blast to make and always makes me laugh. He also was first designed a couple of years ago along with Seaho' Sally and Seahorse Sam.
Take a peek at all these new critters and more over on my ebay page....link is over to the left.
Back to more creating!
Till later!!

I love creating Americana and patriotic critters and am excited to get going on my Memorial Day and summer/4th of July listings!!!! It also means warmer weather cannot be too far behind!! :-)

Off to finish dinner for my folks who are visiting for a couple more weeks.......it's pretty hectic here and hopefully I'll get some more new creations finished and listed later on this week!!

New Critters on Ebay!

Just finished up a couple of new critters that just went up for auction on Ebay.....a primitive Red hatter Dodo Bird Doll and a Primitive Flounder Doll.
I'm having a great time with my parents who are visiting us from Florida! In between showing them the sights of New England and enjoying the warmer, sunny weather, I've been trying to rapidly finish up several dolls I started and hopefully will be listing them one by one during the next week. :O)

Cowboy Dodo Bird Arrives at OCSC!

I thought it had been awhile since I created any western critters so I finished this Cowboy Dodo Bird today and just listed him over on Ebay. These crazy dodo birds are always so much fun to create and each seem to have a life of their own. :o)
Well, off to get the kids to bed and get ready for the start of a new week.

New Critters on Ebay!

Well, it's good to be out of my hiatus and finally back in a working mode again. Ty seems to be cooperating as well! :O)
Just listed a new elephant, an Easter dodo bird and a new clam for me....a Boston Red Sox clam. :o) Got a new idea for some small grungy dolls I want to create....hopefully it'll turn out like I'm imagining. LOL All the above critters are now on Ebay.
till later!

I'm on a roll!!

Wow, thanks to Ty taking a really good nap this afternoon, I was able to get some work finished and more listed on ebay........
Here's what just went up over there..

Got more critters in the works so hopefully I'll get some more time to work on them from Ty, :o), and they'll be up on ebay soon!!! One day I'll finally get my website back up and running....that's another story!!!

till later!

Finally back to listing!!!!!

Ok...after a couple of months on break I've jumped back into the saddle and listed my first primitive creation over on Ebay........a primitive Dammit Doll. I figured that with our economy and politics and everything so whacky and stressful for so many right now, that we could all use our own grungy dammit doll in our lives. LOL
It had been so long since listing on ebay that I had to really take my time getting the doll listed as they seemed to have changed things up a bit. Go figure. :)
Anyways, he/she's up and running and I've got several more prim critters in the works including some Dodo Birds so make sure to check Ebay thoughout this week for their debuts.
My old website has been down and under construction so please be patient for a couple more weeks until I can get my new and improved site live.
Till later!

New Valentine's Critter Listed!

Well, finally got SOMETHING done and listed on Ebay. LOL It's been quite a time here in NH between L O N G pre Christmas power outages (thanks to the ice storm) and then a bad cold/flu bug that hit my family pretty hard. I'm STILL getting over that one. But, hopefully we are all on the mend and will avoid any more ice storms this year. :) (although we just got about 8" of additional snow last night) Anyways, this critter above is now listed over on Ebay......gotta run and finish makin' some yummy chicken and dumplings. :)
till later!
