Wednesday, February 10

Hello, Wednesday

It's been a fast week, hasn't it?  I realize it's only the middle, but I'm having trouble keeping up!  If you placed an order last Friday during the update, your order has been shipped unless I emailed you.  We are prepping to go out of town for a couple of days, so I've been trying to be as productive as possible this week, though, I am seeming to fall behind on my custom orders.  Fingers, work faster!!!

Here's a good example:


An elephant just waiting for me to stuff his legs.  I'm coming, Mr. Elephant!  I promise...

My little family is so funny about Valentine's presents.  We all love to get and receive gifts (of course), so with Valentine's Day, when one comes early we just give it.  The reason?  "V-day is a day to celebrate your loved ones and we show it everyday."  Haha.  Fine by me.  Those cuties surprised me today with a new Blythe!


I am now the proud owner of a Friendly Freckles.  Darling Hope has decided that the amount of dolls I have compared to her 1 Blythe is most unfair. 

I'll have news on another shop update soon, but it really will depend mostly on how fast I can crank out these customs.  Until then...


Have a wonderful week.  I guess I'm kind of taking a mid-week vacation, but I shall return rejuvenated and extra motivated!

  27. hey katie how did you start making your creations?
    they are so cute and personalized! i read a tweet that said someone was copying you and i wondered why.
    it would be so obvious since ive never seenanything like your cute lil animals.

  30. Brandi- When I first watched the Science of Sleep I was so inspired by Lauri Faggioni's (she's my all time favorite) work that I decided to try my hand at creating my own style of plush. I did, and loved it, and never stopped. :) The end.

    Thank you all for the love. I love you right back!!!
