toy designs!

Here is a taste of toys that are in the works !

These are based on my line of felt bunnies and bears and the horses are based on the wooden dala toys that are popular in Europe.
Also i am happy to say that our toy line is now in 27 retail stores!! WOOHOO!!
You can see a store near you on my List of stores page on my website.

I am also going to be in a craft fair this Xmas so i will be saving these toys for then, it is my chance to see what people think and i really love selling toys in person much more than online, so much more personable!

3 month update!


i was considering making a new blog to seperate the baby updates but i decided against it so just so you craftsters know i am still planning more crafts but life is all baby right now!


So, xen is now 3 months and getting heavy! she is close to 12 pounds so i call her turkey legs hehe..she is also starting to notice toys! yummy..i have just one gripe and that is whenever i meet strangers and they stop that i can almost bet that they will say " Enjoy it now! they grow up soooo fast!"
Well i can't speak for everyone but with my straggly hair and darkend baggy eyes i look at them and think.. WTF?? uhh you probably blocked out major parts cuz it feels like longer than 3 months to me! However maybe i will be reading this blog years from now and completely disagree..but i doubt it.

On a different note i am majorly looking forward to some movies coming up this year which is very rare so i wanted to post them here!

Fantastic Mr fox is a stop motion flick directed by my fav director wes anderson and is based on a ronald dahl book.
I love fashion and coco chanel is one of my icons PLUS i love actress audrey tatau ( Amelie)



This just seems fun plus it is a original story ..and the food theme seems right up my alley!

Lastly i wanted to update that the star wars art show went very well and we sold out of our jawas on opening day! Thanks to all that came out! Plus our toys were also on display at San Diego Comic con this year again at DKE Toys booth!
