I found Nemo! :)

I just listed this clownfish pin badge on my etsy shop. :) I like clownfish.
My brother has a couple and I like watching them when I'm round. That was the main inspiration behind making this pin. :) That and the fact that I love the film Finding Nemo of course. :D

I just wanted to thank Cuteable for featuring me on their site yesterday. :) To the best of my knowledge it's the first time I've been featured anywhere so it was a nice feeling. :)

Thanks for featuring my Blobble Pins. :)

Everyone likes a sale. :)

I thought it would be fun to create a Sale section in my etsy shop as I think everyone likes a sale. :) Every now and then I will swap the items in there and make changes to offer something new.

Clicky for the sale section.

On a different note I have today off work and am looking forward to a date with Johnny Depp at the cinema..... (Sweeny Todd), shopping and a nice meal out somewhere. :D

New items. :)

I've listed a couple of new items on etsy over the last couple of days so thought I'd mention them here and a bit about them.

Paw Print Pin Badges:

These were inspired by my two kitten's little paws. I love cat paws and thought they'd make cute little pin badges. :) You can find out more about them by clicking on the following link >>>

Bow Wow Buster Dog Pin Badge:

Bow Wow Buster Dog has a fetish for lampposts and it’s his life mission to find the supreme one. He likes going for walks (no matter what the weather) in hope of finding new ones to assess. Bow Wow Buster likes to drink tea and takes a flask with him to stay warm on his walks and to keep him focused on his mission.

You can find out more about Buster Dog here >>>

A busy weekend...

I feel like I've had quite a productive weekend this weekend. I think it's because I know I have a busy one coming up next weekend so I'm trying to get some new designs down while they're in my head. :)

I made a bit of a mess of the dining table though and spread out a bit, the picture above is just an example of part of the table. :P I'll clear it up... soon.

Sat down and watched Gladiator while sewing lolli-pops. :) Hadn't watched that film since visitng Rome a few years ago but it was cool to see it again.

I've added a links list on the right side of the nav bar >>>> Please take a look as they are other etsy bloggers I have got to know from the community there. I have also added a paypal widget over on the right also >>>> Just incase any of you want to purchase items and not go through etsy. I will gradually add all the items on there, have started with just a few. :)

Etsy Treasury - Feeling Mellow

Just wanted to thank The Nutty Knitter for featuring one of my products in her Feeling Mellow Treasury at etsy. :) Treasuries are collaborations that the buyers and sellers can put together themselves of items they like, they can be a theme or whatever you want them to be and last for about 2-3 days before they are wiped to make room for new ones.

Thanks for featuring Teddy Love. I always think it's fun to be included in a treasury. :)

What Is Etsy?

I just realised that I'll probably be making quite a few posts about etsy and thought that not everyone will know what I'm talking about so here's a brief explanation...

Etsy is an online marketplace where you can buy and sell anything that is handmade. It is based in America which is why all the products are listed in US$. There is talk of there being a currency converter in the future but paypal converts all the currencies automatically anyway.

Even though it is based in America there is a big UK and European following and many people have set up their own little shops and are doing quite well. In the future I hope to post about some of my fave creators and items. :)

For more information please have a look at the FAQ provided at the etsy website here.

Pink Blobble Plushie

I listed this item on etsy last night:

Not much is known about Blobble origins. What we do know is they seem friendly and have no motive other than to add a blob of colour wherever they go. Blobbles are often found in warm places and respond well to snuggles.

Doodling. :)

Last night I sat down in front of the tele and started doodling some new designs. I enjoy doing that, had the tv on in the background and scribbled away with my felt tips. I've come up with three new designs I like which would be for brooches although it depends if I can get them to transfer to felt ok. Sometimes they look better on paper. :P I will probably have a go at the weekend to see if they work.

On a different subject, the new series of Torchwood starts tonight and I'm looking forward to it as I really enjoyed the first one. Captain Jack is back! :D

Just saying hello. :)

For years I've kept a personal blog but thought I would now start up one that has more craft content. This is just a quick post to introduce myself and to get things started rather than looking at a blank screen.

I love most art and craft. I enjoy acrylic painting and also dabbled in jewellery making. I enjoy designing my own little characters and then bringing them to life to make my own little gang of plushies. :) Due to me being an animal lover most of my plushies end up being an animal of some sort although I do also design monster/alien types.

I will gradually start introducing some of my creations over the coming days as well as adding links to some of my other fave crafters.
