New Items for September!

Hi Everyone and happy September!

I have some new items listed in my shop this month and I'm working on improving on some older plush toy listings that I felt needed to be revamped a bit! ALSO... my Etsy shop will be closing on November 27th for the month of December because I'll be traveling to Africa to visit my family! Yippy!!!! I promise to share photos of my trip when I return in January!

Ok... so, one of my first revamps is the crab!  Here's a little preview of what these crabbies looked like before... and the new and improved version underneath.  A little more feisty hahaha!

Pattern Review - Planet Plush Whale Pattern

Hi Everyone!

I have tons of plush soft toy patterns and I always get asked for plush toy pattern recommendations, so I thought I'd post some pattern reviews and share my thoughts on patterns I've tried and love!

This week I tried out the Planet Plush humpback whale pattern and what a cute whale it is!

All new... baby rattles and miniature hand-painted canvases!

Hi Everyone!

I hope you are enjoying the summer so far (or winter for those on other side of the hemisphere!) 
I have a two newcomers to my Etsy shop this year that I would like to share with you!

I now carry baby rattles and in a few months I'll also have baby bibs listed!


These little cactus rattles are flying off the shelves, so get your rattle before they are all gone!!!

The second new item I now have listed is hand-painted miniature canvases! 
Here are a few of the canvases I recently listed...

Hi Everyone!

I've been busy busy busy... but please follow me on Facebook where I'm much more active!
I now have a fun little voting game every Monday on Facebook for the plush of the week!
Please stop by and cast your vote! The plush of the week is reveal every Thursday or Friday!

Here are a few of the past winners...

Week 1
Voting was between Eggs or Avocado's.  Avocado won Week 1's voting.
You might have seen them in my post on June 1st.


Even though eggs did not take plush of the week,  I decided to add heart shaped eggs to my shop as well!

Apples and Earths

Hi Everyone!

I hope you are doing well!  I've been SO busy since January, I've had no time to update my blog (sad face!)

In January I signed up for a 12 week weight loss boot-camp hosted by my gym to get off some of my winter plush haha!  Wednesday was my last weigh-in and I was thrilled to learn I lost 16 pounds over the last three months!

I'm proud and haven't exercised that hard in many, many years!  Don't you just love when hard work pays off!?!?  I do!

With all the healthy eating I've done, I thought what better way to celebrate than to make a few healthy food plushies!

Meet the Apples!

These guys are already available in my Etsy shop and they are cute as can be!

Snails!

Hi Everyone!

This year we have had one of the nicest winters in Maryland.  It's almost hard to believe we are enjoying 55℉ at the beginning of February!  

Ponki, my dog, has been thoroughly enjoying the weather and all the play time she's been able to squeeze out of me.  (Not that I'm a sucker for her cute "play?!?!" face at all.)

Under the sea and an updated Dino-zilla!

Happy New Year Everyone!

I'm kicking off 2017 with an underwater theme!

Not everyone likes canned sardines, but who can resist a 
soft plush sardine in a fluffy sea anemone?!?!

No fishy smell with this guy!




If you have children, you are probably no stranger to the 
kids show Bubble Guppies on Nickjr. 

A couple of months ago a friend of mine requested a custom order
of Bubble Kitty who is featured in the book "Meet Bubble Kitty!"

Here is the custom order I did for her, but I fell in love with the result 
and decided to make another "mer-cat" to list in my Etsy Shop!

This little mer-cat is now available in purple!
I would love to make it in a few more colors... what do you think!?!
Let me know which color you would love to see it in, in the comments!



And to match "Mer-cat" I've constructed a little starfish pillow
that is oh so snuggly! 
(Also now available in my Etsy Shop!)




Last but definitely not least... I've done an update for my Dino-zilla 
that I created in July 2015.

This guy is a little more detailed with arms and legs, and a big grin
with sharp white teeth!  Here he is posing with a round playmate!

Well, that is all from me for now!
I'm looking for theme ideas for February... so please let me know what you
would like to see more of in February in the comments!

Wishing everyone a wonderful and bountiful New Year!
