Hi there! So this is going to yet another crytpozoic-related post. I am a woman gone mad! haha.

Some of you may remember the bigfoot cabinet awhile back that I made for myself:

And you may remember that THE DR. LOREN COLEMAN himself, (world's leading cryptozoologist) commented  on my blog and asked for it for the National Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine! Well, I made him a special one, just for him to put in the museum, and sent it out earlier this week. Well, yesterday,  I got a lovely email back from him:

Hi, Alexzandra
I am overwhelmed. I am humbled. I am surprised by the complex details of this incredible gift of yours!!
This is the best little cabinet of curiosities I have ever seen.
I had a major discussion with a docent today on how to best display it. It is in the museum's first counter now, but I am going to have to consider how to showcase this better.
This is amazing.
Thank you so much.
All my best


So yes, I am very excited! And now, without further ado, here it is!

Thanks for looking!

Beautiful work - Congratulations!

Power is strength and the ability to see yourself through your own eyes and not through the eyes of another. It is being able to place a circle of power at your own feet and not take power from someone else's circle.
