He was an order from a friend. He is going to be a baby shower present!!
This was my 2nd time trying my own yeti pattern. The first attempt was Henry.
Without further ado meet my latest Yeti
I need to work on my pattern and fix a few things, but overall I am very happy how he turned out.
Have a happy Sunday

I do not know what it is or why I like them, maybe because they are stuff and fluffy and they are always happy to be hugged.
Or maybe because they do not talk back.
I know it might sound weird, but I see inspiration for plushies everywhere I look :)
I was watching Game of Thrones the other night and I thought Hmmmm..... I would love to make the wolves from Game of Thrones (wolves are one of my favourite animals)
Then I found myself ordering faux fur for it the other night.
Sigh... my house is covered with lovely plushies..
Keep an eye on this space, as plenty of things will be coming soon!!

At the moment I have a yeti on my desk, holding a flag stating "No one believes in me"

I really love all the ball jointed dolls, but honestly do not know if I am able to justify spending $300+ on one. I was thinking about buying a photo2nd porcelain doll and customising it like I see done online.
The only issue is I have a slight fear off porcelain dolls . I am worried, I do not know why, that if I customise a doll that it will haunt me. I have irrational fears. I already know.
You may see some dolls in the future.

So for a while now I have known I need to make a logo use. I really wanted something that represents me and my creations. I am still struggling a little bit.
I drew up this character today she is kind of based on Wednesday Adam's but still based on me. I need to redraw her shoes, as I want her to have a pair of chucks on. I also want to have a yeti involved or octopi or the white rabbit to represent my love of Alice in Wonderland. I am unsure at this point in time.
I am also thinking of maybe a cartoon of Hunter.
Here is my sketch.

I participated in the international snack swap on Crafster.
Both of my partners have received, so I thought I would share.
I had 2 partners.
My first one was Gingerpeachy. She is a vegetarian which was a great experience, as I now read the back of every label and try to have re4 meals a week meat free.
Her box was 5kg's. The majority of it was tea :) I am not the only tea drinker. I also included some vegemite, a few other Susie food items.
I made a wattle & Wallace grass terrarium (she had plenty of terrariums on her Pinterest. Sadly it did not make it.
My second partner was Loudxmouse. She had recently lost some weight (congratulations) and was after a mixture of healthy snacks
I included timtams, vegemite, cheesymite, marmite, Morona coffee (I read somewhere that the US does not have it) violet crumble plus more.
I made her 2 pairs if Native Australian butterfly earrings (they took me 3 attempts, lol)

I had a request to make a custom cthulhu. This person keeps me sane while I am at work the majority of the time. I wanted it to be green, but his favourite colour is purple. So I wanted to incorporate purple as well. (I won't go into all of the details. I know he does not read my blog, but you never know he may.)
My eyes started of similar to this (same shape & size) but an awful green colour. I really love the yellow but it clashed too much with the green.
I got into the green with a pair of scissors and scratched it off.
I then mixed 2 parts of baby pink acrylic paint with one part aqua and a dash of crimson to get a nice purple colour.
I used that as my base.
I let it dry, then got a sewing pin and scratched off lines of paint with & painted over the purple with an acrylic gold paint.
I left it dry overnight, then used my sewing pin again & scratched off random bits of paint at the back and painted over with acrylic paint. This time 2 parts viridian (dark ocean green colour)with one part appliance white.
I let it dry, then put a sealant over the lot.
I am so happy how it turned out, considering it was my first attempt :)
I don't think the photos do it justice.
I will post full pictures once the cthulhu is received.

I was soo lucky to get the chance, as it was something that I was very passionate about and I really believe in.
I brought Henry Yeti along for the ride.
I did not invite Henry to the work conference though. I am sure everyone I work with thinks I am strange enough :)
I hope you enjoyed my pics. Now back to work :)

Sorry I have been quiet and slack lately. I have been having bad computer and Internet issues. Sometimes my laptop monitoring does not even work *sigh*
Looks like I need to find a new laptop.
I thought I would share some photos of Hunter and I that we had taken of us. they are not very good. But Hunter is so cute, he makes any picture cute :)
Well I hope to post more soon, when my issues are resloved.
Have a fun one!!

Well Queensland and Northern New South Wales has had some wild weather with cyclone Oswald and the flooding. Other than aviary and shed damage we got out unscathed. I went into work after the wet weekend and look who I found at my desk.
A baby yeti! I think he was just seeking shelter from the storm.
Thanks for looking.

At the moment I am in full swing making octopi to put in my etsy shop. I am waiting for fabrics for some of my customer orders octopi.
But I have been working on some sketches to make monsters out of!! So I can start a Creature adoption associations (CAA) like the RSPCA, or Capricorn Animal Aid, lol. At a handmade market.
I just do not have enough stock yet :)
But I thought I would share some scribbles

My Horned pygmy puff:

This is a pic of My Wookie:

A close up of her tattered heart :) I used green red and gold embroidery floss to attach it on :)
I have an obsession with Peter Pan collars, so this is one made out of pink lace and 2 buttons.
She is purposely mismatched, as that is the Junker Jane style. I used Caramel coffee to stain her with Earl Grey tea. I leant that Green tea does not work well for staining :)
I hope you love her as much as I do :)
Here are the earrings I made as well :)
