The creation of Wiggles the Fish!

Have you ever tried to create a life-size costume of a fish?
Yeah, this is new for us too! It's been very fun and exciting to watch the fabric come to LIFE ... Special thanks to Jill Lichfield for her exceptional sewing talent and creative eye. Thanks also to Robert Lichfield for being the avid fisherman that he is - his knowledge of a fish's anatomy is truly stellar :)... (He actually drew the dorsal fin pattern piece for Wiggles)! If you'd like to meet Wiggles the fish - Look for him at the Tumbleweed Festival (around 1:45 at Howard Amon Park) in Richland, WA - Feel free to bring your camera so you can 'hook' a photo :)

Thank you Wiggle TEAM!!

The "Wiggle Like a Fish" CDs arrived today ... They turned out just the way we wanted.
I want to thank the team that helped make this possible -
Special thanks from Tory:

Jennie Stanfield - Illustrations – Her artwork makes the characters in the songs come alive.

Kami Cornwall - Web/Graphic Design – Her endless patience and willingness to help was exactly what was needed until everything was perfect.

Manuel Fernandez - Producer/Musician/Coach/Friend – His recording studio is the best kept secret in town. Manuel spent countless hours recording, playing and singing backup, coaching me to do it better, and producing my songs into music worthy of this CD.

Wendy L. Christensen - Publicist/PR (also my wife!) – I’ve been writing and singing songs for 25 years without any intention of ever going public. Wendy not only talked me into pursuing this venture, she made it all happen. Without her enthusiasm and leadership none of this would have been possible.

This is only the beginning ...
