Camping With Foxes (Want to Come?)

I have a kid friend whose birthday is coming up, and I wanted to make them something special. They love foxes and miniatures, so what could be better than a tiny animal camping set? The nature scene is a piece of balsa with floral moss attached, and I wanted to incorporate items found on a […]
