Happy Easter!

Well, the first Annual Easter Parade is well under swing at Q.D.Patooties and Lisa has done a wonderful job of all the organizing.

I'm so proud to have my Blarney Guinness Grub in the parade this year. Voting starts at the end of the parade so vote for me and some of the other wonderful easter creations on show!

March Madness

The beginning of March has always been busy for me having my birthday early on but, this year it's set to be busy the whole month with easter to finish it off!

I started the month with the monthly Wodonga Markets selling my softies so well that buy the end of the day I had next to nothing in stock!

I then decided that maybe people did really like my softies after all and that it was worth the sacrifice to work at the markets the following Saturday which happened to be my birthday at Wodonga Carnival Wild.

I spent the whole week sewing like a chicken with a chronic egg-laing disorder. I still wasn't happy with the amount I got done but once I had stepped back after setting up my stand I realized it wasn't a bad amount for a one-woman sweat shop!

I did sell a lot of toys that night and felt that it was a huge success. I had an overwhelming flood of lovely comments from people of all ages getting joy from seeing my critters. The most rewarding customer was a little baby boy. His mum bought him one of my Cuddle Buddies and his eyes lit up and he had the biggest smile as she gave it to him.

I can never stop making toys now :)

I'd like to say a big thank you to everyone who stopped by my store, you made my day!

I hope to grow and continue the passion for handmade toys here in Albury Wodonga so stay tuned for many more huggable friends coming form my studio!
