Krampus Munny mini ornament (about five inches tall)
I have one munny left to finish for a swap with other munny makers I saw that their smooth, perfectly shaped round heads so resemble the round glass ornaments typically displayed, that I wanted to make them equally as opulent, all glittery and glitzy and sparkly and shiney so that when the lights of the Christmas tree hit them they stand up to the glass orbs they are in the company of.
I will be adding something to the empty hands but still deciding what.
I love their little munny bootys.
I wanted them to have pouty, spoiled brat faces, expecting lots of expensive gifts for Christmas.
The smooth, vinyl surface was quite a challenge for me as I am acustomed to painting on canvas which has tooth and or mixed media pieces with a lot of texture. Still it was fun.
Spoiled rotten sour puss munnys, I love them!
A young man named John received a parrot as a gift. The parrot had a bad attitude and an even worse vocabulary. Every word out of the bird’s mouth was rude, obnoxious and laced with profanity.
John tried and tried to change the bird’s attitude by consistently saying only polite words, playing soft music and anything else he could think of to “clean up” the bird’s vocabulary.
Finally, John was fed up and he yelled at the parrot.. The parrot yelled back. John shook the parrot and the parrot got angrier and even ruder. John, in desperation, threw up his hand, grabbed the bird and put him in the freezer.
For a few minutes the parrot squawked and kicked and screamed. Then suddenly there was total quiet. Not a peep was heard for over a minute.
Fearing that he’d hurt the parrot, John quickly opened the door to the freezer. The parrot calmly stepped out onto John’s outstretched arms and said, “I believe I may have offended you with my rude language and actions. I’m sincerely remorseful for my inappropriate transgressions and I fully intend to do everything I can to correct my rude and unforgivable behavior.”
John was stunned at the change in the bird’s attitude. As he was about to ask the parrot what had made such a dramatic change in his behavior, the bird continued, “May I ask what the turkey did?
