I created so many one of a kind cuties this year. It was hard narrowing down my all time favorites. It looks like pink and aqua were the colors of choice.

Thank you to all my wonderful customers. I'm so grateful for each and every one of you.

May 2012 bring only love and success to you and those you love.

My Christmas Wish...

My Christmas wish is that the new year brings love, hope and good fortune to all those in need. Sometimes the struggles we endure only bring out the determination in us all to improve our lives. I know there will be many changes for me in the new year! I face them head on and know I'm blessed beyond measure.

Merry Christmas to all!

Winter Woodland Friends

Some little woodland friends I've been finishing up. Hope your holiday shopping, wrapping and prepping is going splendidly well. I'm feeling a bit behind, but that's OK! Life moves too quickly as it is.

Happy Monday!

A very merry Christmas

I've been so swamped trying to finish up all my holiday orders. It hardly feels like Christmas around here. I thought I'd spread a little 'vintage' Christmas cheer. These are just some sweet images I came across while trying to gather inspiration.

Thanksgiving wishes...

It's sometimes the little things in life we take for granted. Life moves so quickly. With our hectic lives it's so important to stop and smell the roses. I'm so blessed in so many ways. May this Thanksgiving remind you of all the blessings in your life, regardless of the years hardships. I'm so grateful for these little smiles and their constant laughter (even the endless sibling rivalry ). They are my most precious gift.

Happy Thanksgiving to all.

A Pinch of this...

...a dash of that!

Sometimes I feel like I'm creating a new recipe when I work on my owl pillows. I love mixing in polka dots, stripes, solids...anything to add a splash of the unexpected.

A Little Inspiration

Jennifer Paganelli is an amazing textile designer. If you have a free moment, stop by her lovely blog. I stop by often just to take in the beauty and find a little inspiration.

The colors of her fabrics are so vibrant and simply amazing!!! I had been searching for over a year for this fabric...LOOPY VINTAGE FLORAL IN FUSCIA. I finally came across some. YAY! Happy Dance!

And this beauty is from her new WEST INDIES line. So Yummy!

Take advantage of these gorgeous fabrics while I have them. They make up into the most amazing dolls!

Happy Wednesday.

Atutudes has an amazing assortment of fancy tutus and hair accessories.

Fall is in full swing. Check out some of these amazing finds from my fellow Etsy Kids members.

I'm all about felt and flowers. So beautiful! This shop offers a gorgeous array of hair accessories to liven any girls do. Stop on over to Dandelion & Dragonflies.

A totally customizable name train from Vibrant Trains. What a great baby shower or gift for the little train lover. So adorable! Vibrant Trains has so many more to choose from.

I'll be searching for some fabulous Christmas gifts on Etsy.

Holiday cut off...

The cut off date for holiday orders is rapidly approaching. I can't believe that Halloween is just around the corner. It doesn't seem possible.

If you'd like me to make a little something special for your little SOMEONE SPECIAL, please get your order in by October 30th.

Happy weekend.

Little Sadie is the last plushie left in my shop. Not sure if I'm going to get the opportunity to create any more before the holidays. I'm swimming in custom orders. Get her while you still can!
Happy Friday!

I see a theme starting to develop. I took a little time off to create this colorful set. I'm not sure why making these is so relaxing. Wish I had time to make more.

Happy Friday all!!!

Love the Kokeshi

I've always admired Japanese Kokeshi art dolls. These are some of my favorite images.
A little different twist on a doll rich in history.
Above is from a wonderful little ETSY shop, DECORARTIST.

This is a photograph from another ETSIAN, HeyHarriet.

Both are equally sweet and swirling my head with loads of inspiration.

Surf, Sand and Snuggles...

I think baby Mitchell and his mommy are going to have many cuddles and snuggles on this little pillow. Dreaming of flowing palm trees and white sandy beaches.

This was definitely a labor of love!

Summer Surfin'

I'm so excited for my latest project. I thought I'd search the internet for some inspiration, although being a California girl, it wasn't all that necessary.

This was all I needed to get my creative juices flowing. I'll keep you posted.
