My dear friend, Shari asked me in 2016 for something just laying around extra from Halfland as her birthday present. I can't believe this is the first time I'm getting to tell you about it.
Of course, nothing much is laying around extra in Halfland so I made her a little Halflandian-style birthday beetle just for her.
It's a bug that would fit right into the Halfland bug party but is kept at Shari's house as a keepsake from her "unusual" friend. It's always fun to make these bugs!
I made a base of earth from painted sponge and railroad grass, sat the beetle on a velvet leaf with a mushroom ice-cream cone, all under a small glass dome.
