So cute...

Having a great time in France, just wish I didn't have to come back to England :(. Although I will have this cute little mousie waiting for me :D, Kierey is the first item I've bought off of Etsy and she's so cute. Made by Christy of the Craggy Moor Store.

Been a week....

Can't believe it's been a week since I got back from Vancouver, still not used to the time change specially when eating xD.

Started off brilliantly, turned up at the airport to find the plane was overbooked but as my mum and I had checked in online we were offered a volunteer standby of 600 euros each (which has paid for our trip with dad down to France for a month :D) and all we had to do was wait another 4 hours. Then came the bonus of being upgraded to Club World and the use of the business lounge - flat beds for 9 hours :D. Also got to watch Sherlock Holmes (most of it at least).

Vancouver was lovely and warm, just got there in time for a heat wave :D roughly 30c. We did tones of walking around town and to Stanely Park - such a beautiful place and black squirrels. Got tones more Vancouver 2010 mascot items and they were all marked price, which was brilliant because I spent a fortune on them. Got the chance to get Mukmuk which I missed out on 2 years ago - Sumi Rules.

Gatecon ruled as usual was a real blast.

I will upload some pics later, although I didn't take many as the batteries went. Stupid camera eats batteries way to quickly, so one of the first things I did when I got back was order a Pentax K-x slr can't wait for it to arrive.

I was hoping to get more plushie up on Folksy but it looks as though we will be heading to France around 2nd Aug and with that being a week away I didn't think it was the brightest idea.

I'll also post pics of my newest plush called Moocha later on today or early tomorrow.

Finally finished the turtle plush which was/is for mothers day (only a few months late xD). The shell was fun to stitch on.
The felt bags are getting better and so are the applique animals
Mum has aptly named him tardy due to how long it took xD

My stamps

Finally got round to taking pictures of my stamps. So far I've made two A6 and two A7 plates, My Aunt wanted some stamps featuring cartoon people.
There is Miss Miyuki and Mr Takumi, Japanese themed (of course XD), a Pirate themed plate and a cave painting plate.
These were all hand drawn and then redrawn on the computer. (Shameless tactics) If anyone is interested in buying them you can get them online at The Stamp Bug.

Debut on Folksy

I finaly got round to putting up one of my plushies on Folksy.
I thought I'd start off with one of my minis to see how it goes. I decided to put on a brown mini whoo.

I hope to get some more on soon, including a white owl and robin.

My plushies are made to order and 4 inches tall by 3.5 inches wide. I also take custom orders.

Many thanks, feedback is most appreciated.

Catch up...

Warning: Image Heavy XD
It's been ages since I last updated my blog, time has just flown by :(. So heres a big update post.
First off I finished Tora a couple of days after Chinese New Year. The stripes were a nightmare but atleast they look good xD.
Whilst making Tora I started my Lion (have yet to think of a name). The mane was a pain to stitch on.
My next project was a monkey, which I still havn't finished, but as my dad's Birthday was fast approaching, I had to change my priorities.
The meerkat Sergei
I have yet to finish my Mothers day gift, she asked for a turtle :D.
My easter presents for my parents and brother. Mum's is the orange bunny, dad's is the green and my brother's the yellow.
The three big reasons my blog hasn't been updated xD. Pokemon Soul Silver (never too old for Pokemon) and the L'Arc~en~Ciel Trans Asia Via Paris Tour - Tokyo Dome (love it so much), Just need to find a way to get tickets for the 20th Anniversary next year xD. Also been trying to catch up on my anime, hadn't watched any since December, good FMA Brotherhood marathon though.

Finished off two more stamp designs and I'll hopefully be able to see them on Tuesday. One was based on cave paintings and the other was pirates. Can't wait xD

Hope it turns out well :). (pics are horrid, will update soon xD)

Finished Whoodlum

Finally got round to finishing Whoodlum (those wings were evil XD). (Pics are horrid quality, I will take some better ones tomorrow)

Ember finished

Finished him a couple of nights ago, but only just got round to taking a photo XDOne of my favourite birds :D

Wednesday, 10 February 2010


Placed an order a couple of weeks ago and it arrived Saturday :D. I was only going to buy the Croissant, as I was running low, but they have so many lovely colours I also got Orange and Soleil. I have a few ideas of some plushies I can make with them :D.
Love the quality of this minkee and if anyone is interested in buying some, here's where I get mine from Minky Passion. Great customer service :D
Now that it's arrived, I'm thinking of starting my Folksy/Etsy shop maybe this weekend. Little bit nervous xD

Getting used to Photoshop CS3 again...

I havn't used photoshop in about a year, So I was a bit rusty on what to do. I needed to brush up on my skills for my Aunt's stamp plates, so I practiced with my chibi drawing of myself (been meaning to do this :D).

Love how it went :D.
