The inspiration came a while ago, but I’ve finally finished the trio of Party Animals: Ostrich, Moose and Llama!
I am so excited how well these turned out! The first set was gone within an hour of my listing it; that made my day! Here they are, relisted and ready for a new home!
Recently, I was approached by a lady asking for a sibling set for her twin boys. She’d fallen in love with the Party Llama, and was hoping I would be able to expand a little; a sort of variation on a theme. She suggested a Party Goose or maybe an Ostrich. The idea of a Party Ostrich tickled me greatly! And so we went with that.
Since her little guys are turning 4, she was justifiably leery of giving them white shirts to enjoy their party (and cake). So, we opted to dye the shirts. She chose a dusky blue and a soft green as well as individualized colors for the hats and noise makers. In order for the silhouettes to show up on the colored shirts, I made the gray darker than I generally do on the white onesies. And the bright colors for the hats and noise makers sure did pop!
Here they are, all done!
I love that ostrich so much! My new plan is to make a trio set of Party Animals: Llama, Ostrich and a Moose. Stay tuned for the complete set!
Recently, I had a request to customize the Party Llama design. This customer was going to be celebrating the 1st birthday for his daughter and they’re Peruvian, so he loved the llama and wished for some party balloons to be added. It’s such a cute idea! Here’s how it turned out:
So, my little store has been going for about a year and a half now.. I have weathered two Cyber Mondays and I’m heading into my second Christmas season. It seems like it always gets a little exciting around this time of year. Now, this year, I’m adding to that my very first Craft Show! I’m very excited!!
It’s part of a Santa Breakfast that will be head at Bethesda Lutheran School (6803 N. Campbell Ave. Chicago) on Saturady, December 10th, from 9am until noon. For breakfast and a picture with Santa, plus some arts and crafts, it’s $6 and to come check out the craft fair it’s just a suggested donation of $2!
I’ve been busily working to bulk up my inventory so that I will be able to man a booth.. Here’s just a taste of what I’ll have available:
If you’re in the area, you should definitely come check it out!
