This video is from the wonderful Edward Monkton.  I was given the book of The Pig of Happiness by the equally wonderful Stacey Piwinski who gifted it too me as she expressed delight in my various piggy creations.  The book now sits on my display, smiling and waiting for any soul to pick it up and appreciate it's sentiment.  I am sharing this with my blog audience as I have been in full pig production mode. 

I am producing more than just pigs of course, but I have discovered over the years that people who love pigs, LOVE pigs, and running low on pig production would just be silly.

I also share this as I have been struck by the lightning of inspiration and deep NEED to create the next in my family of pig designs....... I hope to introduce this new piece at the upcoming Art in the Courtyard  at the Lowell Folk Festival this July 27, 28, and 29.  Lowell Folk Festival has become one of my favorite weekends of the year and one of my top two craft shows I have been privileged to attend.

So!  What is this new pig?  This, Oh My God of course why have I not done this before, new addition?
YEP.  You get it, PIGS IN SPACE!

I do have to admit that my first attempt actually looks more like a Pig in a Scuba Suit, but you have to start somewhere.

If you happen to see me at Art in the Courtyard, be sure and ask me if I have actually pulled this off.  For those of you who can't see me in person, you can bet I will be posting any progress here to the blog.

Hmmm.  There may be something to this Scuba Pig as well.



  1. I think an Artist pig (a beret and a paint palette) would be good.... perhaps a Tortured Artist Pig, (minus an ear), or a Starving Artist Pig (skinny).

  2. of course I would get a 70% commission and free lunch.


    1. The fun that can be had in this pig family is endless.... if it really hits, will we be living high on the hog?
