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
Loren

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

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















Thanks for looking!

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.
