A Toothy New Year

Happy New Year! May it be filled with all the creative endeavors our little hearts can stand!

On a previous note, Christmas was sadly undercrafted. I had delusions of grandeur, and didn't consider how much time a short engagement wedding would consume -- especially one 4 days before Christmas. BUT! I was able to make a gift for my brother-in-law (whose name I drew out of the mystery hat this year). He's a pediatric dentist, if you couldn't guess, so I made him a healthy tooth and a cavity zombie tooth.

He later reported their success:  One of his patients needed to have some teeth pulled, and he notified the parents who then straight up told their little girl what needed to happen. She did what any child would do:  she freaked out. After a few attempts to calm her down, my brother-in-law then pulled out the two teeth plush toys I made, and let her hold them while she calmed down and underwent the procedure. Apparently, she clung to them with force. :)
