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.

Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Winners

I would like to thank all of the wonderful people who entered the giveaway!  The winners of the Tooth Fairy Pouches have been chosen and notified. And the winners are:

  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

  1. I would choose the blue. We have a "problem" with the tooth fairy taking a few days to get to our house so hopefully this will help! LOL

Congratulations to both winners!  If I do not hear back from either of them in 24 hours, other winners will be chosen.  If you did not win, you can still have a Tooth Fairy Pouch of your very own.  All you have to do is click on over to the Storybook Felts Etsy shop and order one for the little ones in your life.

Lots of Little People

Things have been crazy busy around here this month.  I have a lot of things wonderful things going on in the background at the moment and hope to get to share them with you soon.  Right now I can share with you one thing I have been busy working on...

First all of these little bodies were traced and then cut out.

Then eyes and smiles were added. Now I have been in the process of getting them all sewn together and ready to go to their forever homes.  They are all very excited and can't wait for some little girl or boy to order them so they can go home and play with them.

Today I am getting started on a HUGE custom order and hope to share more about it with you soon.  It is an exciting opportunity and I am with out words to explain how wonderful it is.  

We are having weird weather at the moment.  Over the weekend, we had severe storms here in Arkansas (not too bad where I live) and now it is in the 40s. Then, next week we are going to be in the 80s. Gotta love spring in Arkansas!! I hope all of you are having a fantastic week. Talk to you soon.
