That is ridiculously cute.  Her spines are like a hooked rug.  She has to have taken a really really long time to make.

UPDATE:
I made a octopus spatula out of the holy thing!  The wood burning isn't quite as good, I think because I had to go across the grain more.  But I still like it.  I'll probably continue with the cephlopod theme.  I think I'll burn a nautilus or maybe a cuttlefish into the spoon.

Thanks so much for the compliments everyone!

Where did you get that squid wisk thingummy?

My dad bought me the squid whisk. I think it came from a weird ceramics place on Cayuga Lake in upstate New York that my aunt took us to called MacKenzie-Childs.  http://www.mackenzie-childs.com

Are they utensil size, like for cooking, or smaller for eating?

They are definitely cooking utensil sized

TheMistressT- The wood this is made out of also isn't ideal for wood burning (because it's really soft).  I think hard wood is probably the best.  But these were definitely cheep enough that it didn't matter too much if I ruined them.  I would test out the wood burner on cheep stuff or a part that won't show first.

A couple of years ago I bought myself a really cheep wood burning kit at Michael's hoping to make stuff in the vein of the beautiful www.sticks.com furniture I had seen at a couple of different art galleries and fell in love with. I tried a couple of things that didn't really turn out and then put it away and never really thought about it much. I was looking at craftster the other day though and saw this post http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=225375.msg2438407;topicseen#msg2438407 by Annie-bleam that got me thinking about pulling it out again.  When I was at Ikea the other day I noticed these really plain sets of wood utensils and thought they would be the perfect, useful but cheep, thing to try wood burning on.



Here is my first result, a squid pasta fork. I still need to draw designs to fit on the spoon and that thing with the holes in it. I have no clue what that is called or what it's for.

I love the beets.  So cute! 

Brii-elzebub, after rereading Jitterbug Perfume last summer l I really got on a beet kick and kept buying them at the farmer's market.  My boyfriend hates them but that just meant more tasty borsch for me.

10  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / French Bulldog Papercut Valentine on: January 30, 2008 09:10:54 AM
I made this valentine for my boyfriend.  It is of our imaginary future french bulldog who's name is Zidane Cousteau. The name is a combination of his two favorite French people the soccer player Zinedine Zidane and Jaques Cousteau.



I've been really inspired lately by some of the papercuts on Amy Carol's http://angrychicken.typepad.com/ blog.

Here is another one with cats, birds and squirrels.
