Going on Safari

Going on Safari

Years ago I created my Safari Mobile design, and I sold some a while back too. Since switching to stainless steel wires I hadn't made one again until recently.   So I finally have an updated and redesigned Safari Mobile!  This new mobile has been added to my Etsy shop and website so anyone will be able to order one now.

I always dread hearing the words, “take your time, there’s no rush.”  Anytime I hear them directed towards me I tell myself to ignore them, and that I need to get it done as soon as possible.  Unfortunately my subconscious doesn’t hear my advice, and my propensity to procrastinate emerges.  Such was the case for this mobile.  A friend was about 8 months pregnant when she let me know the specifics of what she wanted in her mobile.  She wanted swans, lilies, and lily pads for her little girl’s swan nursery.  She sent me some pictures from Pinterest showing the...
