Mrs.Voorhees dropped by for Halloween. She lost her head. 

mermaids on board

Surprisingly enough, mermaids have been selling faster than I can post them, or put them together. I have a bunch on the go, and more to come (because something has to be done with my leftover yarns.) Each one is so different than the last, I love it. Next up, will be a month of putting things together, setting up my shop, and posting as I go. Wee!

Contact me to snag yourself a mermaid, or other creation!

The parents from Pet Semetary were really terrible parents. 


My Pet Monster was a toy for boys that came with handcuffs. Curious. Happy Halloween! 


slimer sunday

Slimer, from Ghostbusters. 

Took some time to doodle out one of my favorite ghosts. Have a safe and Happy Halloween!


We got our first sampling of winter, today. 
It's a pretty good day for a Sunday. Tea, yarns, blankets, and pumpkin-izing going on.

Happy Sunday to you.


keeping on

Working on monkeys for the last couple of weeks. 

It's getting down to the very last bits before I finally put my things together. I haven't looked at how much I've done so far, because I'm still tackling a pile of things that I've started. For the most part, it's a matter of legs and arms (or fins), while for others, it's a whole lot of stuff. I'm trying not to focus on the big picture and just take each piece at a time, and enjoy it, because it'll be over before I know it.

Mermaid hair. I can't wait to finish one up and see how it looks. 

I'd say the toughest part, is the time that it takes to finish a piece, when my hands can only work so fast as I make them. I give myself a goal to finish at least 2 toys a day -if I can- which often requires a late night or two to keep up with the promise. I think I'll feel good when I can see it all, in the end. It's such a repetitive process, it's easy to lose track of what is actually going on.

Autumn is such an inspiring season, it's so hard not to drop everything and paint!  

The biggest challenge, right now, is keeping myself from doing other things; like painting, drawing, and other random crafty bits that I like to do to keep from growing bored. I know I can't waste any time, to keep up with my goal, so I've been turning off my distractions and tucking the pens out of sight. Even freelance is at a stand still.

I love going outside for a break.

I make sure to get out of the house as often as I can, and find a different environment for the sake of entertainment. A cup of tea, a bite to eat, or even just a place to sit and people; change keeps me going. I've met a lot of curious people in the process, and for that I am happy for what I do. I am looking forward to sharing it all when I'm finished.

Hang tight friends. We're almost there!



I was pretty pumped to receive my business cards in the mail today, not just because they turned out nicer than I anticipated (I ordered them online, without physically seeing the paper I had selected) it is a nice step into something new.

This makes me happy.



This is Corky, who went home with Jennie in Calgary. 

This weekend, I'm working on monkeys. 7 to be exact. I have most of the pieces made and ready for assembly, which is pretty sweet and exciting. Monkeys are probably the most popular of my toys, including the zombie variety. I have a few up for grabs -and some already snagged- which I'll be posting pictures of as they are made. Contact me if you wish to reserve a toy, based off of what is available, before it is posted online. Online shop is in the works, and will most likely have items by mid-late November.

No custom orders. 


high kicks

Good news, new rug. 

Bad news, I didn't get into the craft sale I applied for

Good news, I guess this means you'll get to do some online shopping this holiday season! 

Let's do this. 


brownie attack!

 Oh no! Brownies!? 
My friends are going to be pissed I'm baking for them again.

I took care of it. 
See you tomorrow.
