Frog Blog!

There is just something about frogs...don't you agree? Their wide faces and buggy eyes give them such personality. They are simply the perfect subjects for whimsical art! I think I am going to JUMP right into a series of frog creations tomorrow. I can visualize vibrant spring and summer themed frogs already....should be great fun! I have made many frogs over the years. Unfortunately, most of the photos were lost when our computer blew up a few years ago. But here are two that i found in the archives.

Filiberto the Frog....featured in Art Doll Quarterly, Spring 2004


Frog Jester....shown at the American Craft Council Show, Atlanta, 2006


This long legged puppeteer frog is available in my etsy shop right now...


Ribbit, ribbit....Happy almost weekend, everybody!!!!

Frogs were and are one of my most favorite things!

When I was little that was the only thing I ever wanted! FROGS! TOADS! When we'd go camping on a lake my dad and i would walk by the shore saying softly "Here froggy froggy... here froggy froggy"

I think YOUR frogs are so delightful! Whimsical!

Love your frogs Carrie! I've been wanting to do one as my Aunt collects them. You've inspired me to give it a try!

frogs are so cool, we had some in our window well and I loved to watch them but I had to set them free.
Filiberto is such a cool looking character.
