Wood Shop - Reloaded

I've added some new items to Loose Feathers, my wood shop on Etsy. Something about the cooler weather made me want to pick up the wood burner again - not the mention I've been neglecting that part of my business for a while. It was warm and the smell of the burning wood was nice. I just let me mind wander and create things without pressure.

First up, pumpkins - perfect for the Fall harvest!
Next, I made some owl designs on some round beads - kinda tricky, but fun!
My friend Kristen gave me these butterfly components. They were already a pale yellow with a green design on them, but I figured I could add a little more pizazz to them with the wood burner.
Finally, I found this bee and dragonfly while doing some cleaning. They are a bit larger then my usual pieces, so I had the idea to put some text on them. I looked up some appropriate poems and away I went.
The butterflies, bee and dragonfly do not have holes in them. I thought it best that the purchaser tell me where they would like the holes. That way, they can string them in whatever way they imagine.
