Henna the Hedgehog!

She is a cute little hedgie made from faux fur and high quality fleece.
Henna was stuffed with hypoallergenic polyfill and measures 9 inches long and
5 inches wide... and did I mention she just loves to snuggle!

Henna is 100% child safe as her eyes and nose are attached with safety snaps.
This little girl is ready for her new home!

This little hedgehog is also available with brown fur!

Doberman Pinscher Pocket Totem

After spending the weekend at a local dog show (one of my favorite hangouts!) and getting my inspiration button pushed multiple times, I'm elbow deep in polymer clay this week!

Today I'm working on a few new dog pocket totems which will be in my Etsy shop next week.
Here is the first, and my all time favorite dog breed... the Doberman!

And the source of my inspiration.... this beautiful boy!
(Be still my heart! Be still!)

Welcome to my blog!

I suppose the best place to start is at the beginning...

My name is Jeanette Humphries and I was born and raised in a small town in South-Africa.
I'm the fourth child in a household of five (I have no idea how my mother did it!).

Little baby me... giving a double thumbs up with my toes.

My mother was a stay-at-home mom and seamstress all her life and just like me, 
was taught how to sew, crochet and knit by her mother.  
She's also an amazing painter!  I love her to bits... she's the light of my life!

I have been interested in arts and crafts for as long as I can remember.  
You might say it is in the family.
At 16, I started a small card making business and sold my handmade cards
along with hand painted pillows and tablecloths to a local flower shop.  
That is where it all began and I knew then that my lifelong dream 
was to own a craft store!

I discovered in 2010 while selling at a local craft show and
a couple of months later I opened my first online store.  

Today my forte is still selling at craft shows.  
I love the interaction I have with my customers and enjoy 
the smiles that say "I found something I adore!"

I am looking forward to connecting with all my friends,
customers and fans through this blog 
and hope you'll join me for the journey!
