Four new prints in the Etsy store

Friday, July 1st, 2011

Hello
 
Just a quick etsy update  : )
Ive been doing some medium size work in the original prints so I can get a bit more detail into the work, its been a nice change.  So now there are four new prints for the etsy store.




Ive been getting into the human size sewing lately as well and I cant wait to get my hands on this new fabric from Japan.  I LOVE cross stitch and was highly tickled to nab these two, I see dresses and tops and possibly some very snazzy trousers as well.

Huge thanks to Narelle for taking these super pictures of the set, best and worse idea I ever had, not sure I will ever be able to take pictures myself and show them without a degree of shame*L*  Best of luck to the organisers too, its a huge amount of work to undertake but its always a great day for Australian Blythe collectors.
thanks and bye

New Jamfancy Blythe outfit up on ebay!

Thursday, June 17th, 2010

Hi
Im doing an ebay auction again after the longest time.  Its always horribly stressful, and ebay have changed the process of uploading again so that I cant have a coloured background, so it looks a bit weird, but oh well, here goes, fingers crossed.  Its for a good cause though, all proceeds to go towards Paul and I having chickens in our backyard *L*
Here is the link
and here is how it should have looked
Its a smallish set, with a hand painted deer on the dress and antlered faux fur bonnet and matching cape.  The deer is a special one to match the dress.

Boy Hero's sort of

Monday, February 22nd, 2010

Hello
Once again Paul got some very odd things for Valentines.
He was very chuffed with his little mascot bandit chef
chef
and got a good laugh out of his “Farty Boy Hero” as well
fartI liked Farty so much I made a print of him too, I think it is the awkward, embarrassed post fart stance that makes him lovable even if he is smelly

My gift is still waiting to come into stock, its from the brand Mother, I hope it does come back in, I fell in love with the back of this dress, it seemed rather Jane Austen to me

Hope you all had fine Valentines Days!

dead rats and double headed deer, spiders and decapitated angels, mummified bunnies and cats heads, actual sausage dogs and skulls with a snake and sad teddy bear.

Just in time for Christmas (finishes midnight tonight Australian time)

Thursday, December 3rd, 2009

Hello
Thought I would do a giveaway  to one lucky person who leaves a comment  on this entry between today and the 5th of December.  Every commenter will be assigned a number, with the first person to comment being number 1 and the second commenter would be number 2 and so forth, and then on the 5th, I’ll randomly draw a number to see who this doll will be visiting for Christmas (I’m happy to ship internationally, so it doesn’t matter where you live).

This little bandit is actually rather large, she is about 18 inches long with bendy legs and arms and made of felt with stocking legs

She looks very much like she hasn’t been good this year and is likely to get coal for Christmas, but I hope someone will give her a nice new home anyway. Best of luck!

Tuesday, November 24th, 2009

This years Luvable & Hugable starts at gallery Hanahou December 3rd!  The “theme” for this year was “a bit smaller and more affordable” for these economic crisis times.

I was trying to make simpler things, but that never works out for me really*L*  They are cheaper this year though, with each of these little deer girls going for $80.00USD
