Santa for teacher Complete!!
The Santa I have been doing for Ms. Barton, the Chazman's teacher, has turned out rather well.....if I do say so myself. Well...I did just say so myself...so there!!!! ^_^ He fattened himself up.....grew some hair and a beard and even put on his beautiful felted yarn multi-colored coat. Of course, no self respecting Santa would be caught without his magic (seemingly never ending) gift bag. Watch out though...a bunny and a bear have wiggled their way up to the top so they can see out and Ted E had almost made a complete escape until Santa swooshed him up in his big, loving hand. I do believe that they all will enjoy their new home with Ms. Barton. They will be a sweet reminder of one quite, shy, smart young boy that was in her 2010-2011 Second grade class.
Here is the before photo....some of you will remember the day that Santa recked havoc in the studio. Naughty Santa!!!
Here he is after fattening himself up and growing in his hair and beard. Such a handsome fella!!
Just look at that jolly face with his cheery green eyes. If he turns and looks at you to give you a wink you can see a real little twinkle in his eye.
His beautiful multi-colored coat with attached hood. I love making my Santa be a bit different than the traditional red and white. I do LOVE the traditional but there are so many different stories of Santa all around the world so I think that Southern Ooaks can have different ones too.
Santa's got a brand new bag....well...ok...it's his old magic gift bag but ohhhhh wouldn't we all love to have one of them....for real!! The never ending gift bag.....just reach in and pull out a big heaping of love, happiness and joy. Ohh YEAH....that would be awesome.
See the smile on Santa's face? He is whispering to me that I have shared enough about him today. I still have to go fetch 18 tiny reindeer.
