A Happy Little Weather Man

I posted about the new weather set that I have been working on earlier this week HERE. The person who ordered him sent me a picture of him in use  yesterday along with a little message.

Here is how our weather helper dressed the weatherman today. I added a sun, white cloud, grey cloud, and a lightning bolt.
They love it!

When I get this set listed in the shop it will come with a sun, a white cloud, a gray cloud, rain drops, snowflakes and an umbrella.  There will also be a girl set and possibly a two sided story board to go with it.

It is always so fun to see the little sets in use and being enjoyed. I hope all of you have had a great week and have a safe holiday weekend!!

Busy Busy Me

If you are a teacher please use the code TEACHER15 to receive 15% off of your order this month at the Storybook Felts Etsy shop.

Hey everyone!  Happy Monday.  I hope all of you have survived the first week back to school if you have kiddos.  Ours was a little rough.  Boo broke his arm AGAIN on 8/8.  We had just bought him a new Razor scooter the day before.  Went camping that Friday and by that night we were in the ER getting his arm in a splint.
This is his arm when they pulled of the splint and were waiting to put on the cast.

 The orthopedic doctor put the cast on the 11th.  We were back last Monday to see how things were progressing due to the fact that the doctor had to reset the bone while putting the cast on.  It had shifted slightly so we will be back today to find out how it is doing again.  We were informed if it shifted much more surgery would be involved AGAIN.  UGH!!

This is what the x-ray looked like after the cast was put on.

Our kiddos went back to school on the 18th.  I am now the mom of a 4th grader (Boo) and a 10th grader (Lulu). 

 Having one in high school is not pleasant. Due to the fact that she has all advanced classes, her classes are scattered from one end of the school to the other.  Literally from one end up front all the way to the other end way in the back.  She was finally doing great on Thursday and Friday then over the weekend it went down hill and she was "sick and didn't feel well" over the weekend.  She was begging to stay home this morning to no avail.

I have been crazy busy with getting new items worked up and ready to go into the shop as well as a new custom order that I just finished up.

It is a little weather set.  It has clothing for each season and will also come with clouds, sun, rain drops and snow flakes when it is listed in the shop.  If anyone is interested in ordering one now let me know.  I have some ready to go I just have not gotten them listed yet.

Due to the fact that this set is going to be used as a class room tool, I added a pair of undies and secured the hair to the doll.

I am thinking about adding undies to all of the dolls I make from now on. Let me know what you think.  Should I add permanent undies or just leave them naked?

Well, I am off to finish up an order for some tooth fairy pouches.  I hope all of you have a great week.

What I've Been Up To...

Summer has officially started here at our house.  The kids are out of school and we have been enjoying the pool.  Except this week has been cool and rainy.  I can't hardly get in already cool water when it is only in the 60's.  Our high is only supposed to be 70 again today. Boo also has some kind of virus that keeps him running a temp mid day but none at night or first thing in the morning.  No other symptoms really.  He has had something similar before and it took him almost 2 weeks to get over it.  We did go to the library and pick up some books yesterday.  We also picked up some movies the kids have been wanting to watch plus some new computer games.  

I just finished up my new order for the Bobble Head Doll (see this POST).

This is what it looks like on one of my felt dolls.

It comes with the Surf Board, Shirt, Shorts, Sun Visor and Water.

I had fun with this set.  I got to embroider words on the shirt as well as the surf board.  I can't wait to see what it looks like on the doll. Next, I will be working on a July set with red, white and blue.  Can't wait to share it when it is finished.

Now I am off to do some book reviews on the Daisy Patch blog.  I hope all of you are having a wonderful summer.

Fun Custom Orders

I love doing custom orders.  So many people have fun uses for my items. Because I promised in yesterday's post to share info about my next custom order with you...Here it is...

I have a wonderful customer that orders my doll clothing sets for a friend of hers.  Her friend then uses them to dress... are you ready...a bobble head doll.

His next outfit will be for June (Hint: Hanging Ten) and then we are working on another idea for July (Hint: Hello Uncle _ _ _).

Once I get each one finished I will share them with all of you.  Of course the clothing sets will also be for sale in the shop with a Felt Doll if you are interested in ordering one for a little one in your life.

Off to get more fun things made. I hope you are having a fantastic day!!

A Quick Hello And Update.

I hope all of you had a safe and fun Memorial Day.  I spent mine with family doing nothing but relaxing and putting up our metal frame pool for the kids.

I know it has been kind of quite around here for the last month.  I have been extremely busy working on a very exciting custom order.

Here it is...500 mini Tooth Fairy Pouches. Each one was hand sewn. Yes, I did start to think my hands were going to fall off. Once they reach their destination in Tampa, FL, they will then be added to a children's book, that will be title Smiles In The Sky, about the Tooth Fairy. It is very exciting to think that each one of these 500 little tooth pouches will be placed inside of a book.  The author has promised to send me a copy of the book once it goes to print. I promise to share pictures with all of you when I get it.

Now I am off to work on another custom order.  I'll share with you tomorrow about what it is for.  ;)

Have a great day.

  1. these pouches are so sweet, and such a great idea! I would choose orange, and give it to my youngest son since he still has a few teeth to loose
