Red camo sheep


"A fire camo sheep. You know, in case the sheep is caught in a deadly fire and has to escape stealthily."
(Shaune Reynolds)

This is a drawing by Shaune's girlfriend, and he wanted to surprise her with a custom made soft toy. How romantic!

I ran around Vancouver looking for red camo fabric, without luck. Then I found it on-line, from a distributor in Los Angeles. It would have cost $50 to ship it to Canada, so I had them deliver it to The Letter Carrier in Point Roberts, WA. It took me (only) 2 hours to drive down in bumper to bumper traffic and pick it up and get back home, where I then had to scramble to get this order finished and shipped out.

How romantic, indeed.

I'm the girlfriend :)
I couldn't have been happier when I saw this! I knew Shaune had a surprise for me, and I bugged him for days to give me hints as to what it was.. But he refused, and told me I'd get to see it when I got to Florida. I said fine, and continued to wonder. On Thursday, I was finally about to board my flight, so I sent him a text saying I was boarding and that I would see him in about an hour and a half. He replied with the URL to the fire camo sheep. I nearly cried. I thought it was the cutest thing, and so well made! He then gave me the sheep when I got to the airport. This was by far the best gift I've ever received, and I wanted to thank you for all the hard work that was clearly put into making him. Thank you! :)

You're very welcome, Kayla! I'm glad the sheep made it into your arms, after everything it went through :)
