Watercolor Sunflower Tutorial

I was spring cleaning and discovered an old tray of watercolor.  
Stuffed toys where put on hold this week so I could dust off my inner child... haha!

 I found a fun sunflower tutorial by Angela Fehr on YouTube (Don't you just love YouTube?! )
It's very easy to follow if you would like to create your own.

She traced a printed sunflower template,
but I found it a bit easier to just do a rough sketch of half a sunflower.


This will make a beautiful handmade Mother's Day card for those of you looking
to make something special for your mom.. wink wink!


Enjoy and please share your sunflowers with me on my Facebook page!

With love, until next time...

Purple Hair and Foxy Ears

Happy April Everyone!

This month I have a bunch of new designs coming to my Etsy Shop!  I'm bringing in a variety of little purple spacemen, each with their own personality and facial expression.  Here is a little sneak peak of the first two I made this week.  

Meet Jerry and Joey!
These two silly purple boys had a lot of fun pulling pranks on April Fools' Day.


Both Jerry and Joey have styleable purple hair... 
 Joey decided he's a fan of Justin Bieber's new haircut and of course Jerry found it hilarious.


All my new blue boys will come stuffed with a layer of poly-pellets on the bottom.
This gives them bottom weight that makes them stand up without having to prop them up.



Another little newbie to my shop are these little handmade fox stuffies.


These fox plushies will only be available for a limited time as they were made from leftover 
custom order fabric.  I'm doing a bit of spring cleaning in my craft room and the hustle
made these little foxes crawl out of the cracks!


That's it from me...
Wishing everyone a fabulous spring time!
