Busy Blythenstien Weekend

I spent most of the weekend working on Frankie and her Blog rather than making the new softies I'd designed the week before.

I did however make my boyfriend a companion cube softy for St Valentines Day. he was so stoked he's still grinning about it!

The other softy-related thing I managed to do in amongst housecleaning and Blythe scalp-plugging was to take a few photos of some softies a made at the end of last month (see pictures above). They are going up for sale on Etsy after I finish this blog.

As the title suggests, I have now opened my Etsy Shop. I will work hard to put as much as I can in my shop for the next couple of weeks, I need to clear some room in my studio for all the new projects I have lined up!

My friend's mum owns a cute little book shop and she wants a whole bunch of my softies to sell. I have to agree that there is nothing better than curling up with a good book and a softy to cuddle!

I also went to the Saturday markets last weekend and had a great response for my softies. I meta lady who makes gorgeous little hair bows and she wants to sell some of my sock monkeys and softies on her website.

On top of all this good news Q.D.Patooties has featured my Blarney Guinness Grub on her blog as part of the up-coming 1st Annual Easter Parade. I'm so honored!

Anyway, Time's -a- wastin' and there's softies to be made!

PS: Sorry I couldn't put a photo in this blog.....Blogger is playing up!

Introducing Milly Monsters

Coming soon to my Etsy shop are a motley bunch of lovable, cuddly monsters.

Milly monsters may look a little crazy but they are always there to make you smile by pulling a funny face.

Each monster is unique and has been designed to suit all ages especially young children with the use of safety eyes and easy washability.

Milly Monsters are named after my younger sister. She can be an absolute terror some times and her many moods are represented in the faces of these monsters.
