Is it Spring yet???

I'm feeling like it is! Especially around my house where a bunch of adorable lil easter bunnies are being crafted. If you thought all we made were robots, let us change your mind... here are the cutest little terry-cloth bun buns you'll ever see:

Our first batch of bunnies: Artichoke, Bok Choy, Cauliflower & Parsnip.

above: Cauliflower... loves reading a good non-fiction book and taking hops through the park at sunset.

above: Bok Choy... loves working in the garden and painting with watercolors.

above: Artichoke... enjoys chatting on the phone with friends and hopping to faraway lands.

above: Parsnip... loves quilting with salvaged fabric and eating all the black jelly beans.

These bunnies are looking for good homes this Easter! Visit our shop to see the bunch and stay tuned for more of these funny characters. Coming soon: Asparagus, Chicoree, Fennel, and Broccoli! :)

Been Busy...

We've been busy busy busy! :)

Newly listed:

Hmmm... Where do I start? Let me first tell you that although our shop is hardly a full page we are working on new stuff everyday. Also, there are items just sitting here waiting for me to list. I'm doing it slowly... perhaps too slow at times!

More ROBOTS are in the works!!! YES! :) On Thursday, Mom and I sat in the sewing room and made a big mess. Haha. We have some new robots planned out in new colors and patterns. They are going to be SO cute, and we just know you will love them. Robots with a bit of spunk, in orange/blue/red/yellow, green and blue, another girl robot... oooh. Wait till you see. I will post some sneak peeks as we sew them & stuff them.

Also, for Spring we are introducing our next handmade original plush toy. A bunny rabbit unlike any your eyes have ever seen! That little fuzzy hopper bunny will steal your heart! Beware! ;)

Finally, the scrapbook pages are coming. They are! I have been busy setting up shop but now that I'm in the groove of things I will get back to the paper crafts this week. Look forward to seeing some Spring/Easter, Earthy/Organic, and Robot themed pages for photos of your kids (or beloved friends, pets, and family members).

I'm toying with the idea that it would be fun to do some small paintings for the shop as well, but I'm looking into printing options to make it more affordable than having to sell the original. Once I've looked into that, there will be some art available as well.

Well, if you made it all the way to the end of this update you are awesome! Thanks for reading. Please leave a comment and say "hi". You know, so I don't start feeling like I'm having a conversation with myself into an empty room. Because I have NO idea what that's like. ;) LOL.

Happy Monday!

Sending Some Love : Tuesdays

Since opening our shop, I realize more than ever how important it is to not only promote yourself but to also promote other Etisans (Etsy sellers) that you admire. This act of putting someone out there and "sending love" their way can only be a good thing for the success of Etsy in general. And what goes around comes around, right? ;)

So, I decided to send some love to another Etsy shop every Tuesday. Won't this be fun??? I have a huge list of them just waiting to share...

Sending Some Love to:
Oh Hello Friend

Her stuff is amazingly simple and cute. Just my style. :) I adore this umbrella necklace. It would be great for me since I do love the rain... and it's even raining outside today!

let it rain - antique brass umbrella necklace.
and how pretty are these hair pins???

candi(ed) - lovely vintage hair pin set.
