Wednesday already! Before le animalé, the last time Wednesdays really meant something to me was in college when we had wind ensemble rehearsal on Wednesday evenings, so my day wouldn't end until late. Before that I guess it was when I attended church in the 8-9th grade and we had choir practices on Wednesdays. I don't have those activities anymore but I have le animalé, and Wednesdays are now such a big marker for me that my weeks are kind of structured around them!
Wednesdays are good days.
My wildcard this week actually happened to be a totem I was planning to make anyway: the swan. I thought it was interesting that I happened to pull that one. I didn't realize I would see so many swans on my trip, but they were plentiful on the water in Lucerne and Lausanne in Switzerland, and even down into Annecy, France. I feel like I've seen swans in person before but I don't remember them being so big. I may have encountered a different type before, anyway. They really demand attention with their graceful, stately appearance and that noise when they fly just above the water. I read that they can break a man's arm by beating their wings and after seeing them shoot about over the water, I totally believe that. They are strong.
Le Stately Swan Totem
Your presence can not be ignored.
Le Shaggy Sheep Totem
This one is inspired by a group of sheep on a farm we passed in Germany one of our first days of the trip. Eee!
Le Willful Shiba Inu Totem
Even if they're little stinkers, we still love them.
Le Balanced Raven Totem
The totem itself even balances just so; a double reminder to find & maintain your perfect balance.
Le Journeying Camel Totem
Hehe, the next in my silly teeth sub-series - he's got goofy lil camel teeth for an extra touch of personality.
Le Unassuming Moth Totem
Posable! Stick him wherever you'd like. :)
I have also opened up my custom totem slots for the month of March this evening! There is limited availability. If one of the listings sells out, it will be available again next month. :)
Happy Wednesday, friends!
