I've begun making these for friends and family that are having babies lately (seems to be happening alot).  They're so much fun (and addicting)!  It starts out as just a white ceramic piggy bank that I just paint with paint pens.  I've been customizing them for each recipient.  These are my favorite 3 (girl) piggy banks:

'ballerina piggy' (complete with blush, pearls and tutu)

i call this one 'hippy piggy' (i used the last of my vintage lace  Embarrassed)

this piggy has a sweet tooth!

I made some boy piggy banks too, but I'll post those later.  I love making these so much, I was thinking about selling them and/or swapping them?  I opened up an Etsy, but don't have anything in it yet...what do you guys think?


the only real voyage of discovery
consists not in seeking new landscapes,
but in having new eyes.

Absolutely sell them, they're gorgeous. Just remember that Hobby Lobby also sells decorated piggies, so I'd try to be comparable on price. (although everyone know handmade is 100% better anyway....oh well. mass production....*sigh*)
