 :thankyou:  Danielle for your lovely comments.  Yes, the Giraffes are gentle looking animals.  I have just mentioned in another post that I finally have some "me" time and am putting good use to it.  How long it will last, I don't know but I am have a wonderful time while it does.

Patricia,

I love your giraffe.  He looks so playful with that quirky little smile.   I can see this would be a big seller for a pediatrician's office, kid's room, library children's room, etc. 

It says, "You are safe here with me.  I am your friend."

I LOVE this.

 :thankyou:  Mea, they are beautiful animals and really don't harm any other animal unless attacked and then they have one heck of a kick.  I love their huge eyes.

 :thankyou: Sally, Sharon and Retta for your super comments.  Sally you should have a go at this for it is so interesting to do.  Sharon I am not really a drawer either but Nolan makes it so easy to follow and once you take one of his classes you will be hooked,  guaranteed.
