K.K. Slider WIP

I’m working on something new! My first sculpture since my big move from Sweden to the Netherlands, K.K. Slider from Animal Crossing! He’s going to get a stool to sit on like in the game. I haven’t really figured out the oven we have now so I’m going to test it with this. After I have baked and sanded this I will work on the guitar and the limbs and ears.

LAVENDER (A STAPLE IN ANY WITCHY CABNET) 

Lavender has been used for centuries as an herbal remedy, and does indeed appear to have antiseptic, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, anti-convulsive, and last but certainly not least - anti-depressant properties. In folklore, pillows were filled with lavender flowers to help restless people fall sleep. Scientific evidence suggests that aromatherapy with lavender may slow the activity of the nervous system, improve sleep quality, promote relaxation, and lift mood in people suffering from sleep disorders. Studies also suggest that massage with essential oils, particularly lavender, may result in improved sleep quality, more stable mood, better concentration, and reduced anxiety. In one recent study, people who received massage with lavender felt less anxious and more positive than those who received massage alone. 

Lavender is mostly used in healing mixtures. It is worn as a protection against the evil eye. Carrying lavender brings strength and courage. Lavender is also used as a charm for protection.

It also attracts energy of a high vibration and is useful in mediation for seeking higher awareness. It energizes and harmonizes the root, heart, and crown chakras

K.K. Slider WIP

There are still some things left to do but I’m getting there! I’m going to finish the guitar and feet next and then I’ll do some sanding. After that I’ll make his stool. I’ve never made furniture before this will be a first for me.
