Little Owl Prepares for Aussie Flight

My dear friend Marcia is leaving soon to spend four weeks in Australia teaching beading in at least three cities. Originally, her husband was going to join her but that has become infeasible for several reasons. So she'll be going it alone. Now she's traveled all over the world and loves to travel, but I've got to think that four weeks away from home could be a bit of a challenge. I told her she needed a talisman or something to guide her on her trip. I just made "Little Owl" for that purpose. He doesn't weigh much. He can slip into any small space and brighten any room she finds herself in reminding her of home and the dear ones who will await her return. So disappointed that the crystals in the center of his eyes don't show up in this photo!
