My Toys

Thursday, December 29, 2011

(left to right) aardman's shaun the sheep; lady & the tramp; the little mermaid; le petit prince; pixar's trademark bouncy ball; goofy; smee from captain hook.
I was dusting my bookshelf and forgot I had such a comprehensive collection of toys from my favorite... everything! Away in a box somewhere is my complete collection of The Incredibles McDonald's Happy Meal toys. I also have a Pixar lamp, a Where the Wild Things Are plush backpack, a Wallace & Gromit puzzle, a Ponyo paper wind-up toy, and a Wall-E tote bag. HUGE NERD.

And this is my small but meaningful elephant collection. The center guy is the first elephant I've ever sewn. He's what started it all! Then the other elephants are from either my or a friend's travels in Prague, India, Mexico, and Vietnam.

That's all. I just felt like sharing. I'm feeling like a kid today.

Starting Early This Year....

A mom messaged me on Etsy asking if I could sew a plush letter Z for her son. I wasn't taking orders for the rest of the year but I decided to make this special case my one exception. A couple days ago, she shared the letter Zachary wrote to Santa:

Dear Santa, I want a stuffed letter Z for Christmas. My name Zachary starts with a letter z. Z is for Zachary. I want a Z because it is a Ziggy Zaggy letter. Do you know I go to bed for Santa Claus to come and I make that zzzzzz sound? Love Zachary

Dawwwwwwwwwwwwwwww :)

The Z is on his way!

Unique LA!!

Wow what a wee(eeee!)kend! The best ever yet! As you can tell from the quiet of my blog, I've been busy preparing for the upcoming holiday fairs and Unique LA wiped me out clean! So much for being prepared ;) I debuted my arm/hand mufflers, and needless to say they were a cozy, warm hit.
 Dressed in denim & ready to vend! My dress is by my good friend & designer Jill Yee. Photo by Scott.
flustered vending. so many people & smiles!
Best photobooth set up ever. Happy holidays from {Paper & Type} & yours truly. I've always wanted a fro so I was pretty ecstatic to see it as a prop. And there's my muffler!
Kevin & I wish you happy holidays as well ;)
Kevin & I made our way to Figaro just down the street from his house to celebrate by candlelight & eating mussels. Nom nom.
Discover Paper also snapped some delightful photos of my stuff. Thank you to everyone who visited. I'm always happy to see new & old friends, and match faces with etsy usernames. See you next weekend at Renegade Craft Fair LA!
