I Love the Babies!!

I had the privilege of creating the birth announcement (and taking the photos) for my new niece and nephew a little while back! Here's how it came out:

 We didn't have much chance to take "formal" photos, so they're all in natural light and "in-situ."

 And here is the pic. I made for their wall:
this was a hoot (oops, a pun) to shoot!
They are now about 2.5 months old, and getting bigger every day!!
Yay babies!

Upcoming Musers Sneak Peek, and a few orders shipped!

How many times can I mean to do a blog post, even take pic's specifically for it, and still forget to do it?  Evidently many many times.  BUT, here I am, trying to make up for it.  Maybe it's so (after thinking a bit too much) I can tell myself that I don't have that many followers because I don't post enough, and NOT because what I post is a bit repetitive and kinda boring.  If I keep posting sporadically, I'll never have to face that possibility! :P

Anyway, here's what's coming up:
new kitties
(there's also 3 more sleepy ones that weren't ready for the photo)

new spotted puppies!
And here are some of the last orders shipped:
These were ordered as party favors!
The snail was for the birthday boy!

I'm also currently working on 3 more Narwhals!
Time to make another Octopus :)
The next post should include images of my new niece and nephew!  I did their birth announcements, and a few shots for fun!

Musers in La

So, I've been in Louisiana for the last week and a half, helping out with my sister's new twins! They were born last Wednesday; Simon at 6lbs 9oz and 19.5" and Aubrey at 5lbs 5oz and 18.25". They and their mom are doing great!

I've been attempting to make new Musers between feedings and rocking (and a few diapers, but I'm trying to avoid those!). Working on new Eggbunnies, Curlies, A new T-Rex, etc.

My awesome hubbie is shipping out the current Muser orders, and doing a great job! I just wish I could still draw on the packages and write the thank you notes that are usually sent with each package :(

I'll be heading back home in about a week, so am trying to help out And get my fill of little tiny babies now!

Pears, Dolphins and T-Rexes, Oh My!

I'm pretty darn excited about the newest members of the Muser family!  Introducing Pear and Pear Mini!:

aka Poppa Pear!

aka Baby Pear!
I've had the design for a while, but was waiting on the perfect fabric.  What do you think?  Also, someone on Etsy recommended an easy way to make a white "light box" to take photos in, so I tried it out for these shots.  It's just 3 pieces of foam-core that I hot-glued together, then sat the "box" on a stool kinda close to a window in our living room, and angled it for pleasing light.  That's it!  And I only got one little blister from the hot glue gun :P.

Also, here is a dolphin I made for a recent birthday party:

Yes, this shot also features my knees :)

One more item to share!  A potential customer was interested in a T-rex stuffie, so here is what it's looking like so far:
Our 11yr old sd. to add a tooth, but I'm still debating it.

Valentine Musers and The Musers Pipeline

I've been working my booty off (I wish, with the booty part!) to get some new guys done in time for Valentine's day! They're not listed on Etsy yet, but here they are:
New Hartlys for Valentines!

And here's what I'm still working on:
Most here are still in need of stuffing!
Yay, more Hamsterlumps! :)
And lastly, here are the last 2 orders I shipped (I had a little extra fun on the envelopes this time):
My first order of more than 2 at once!

Thanks to everyone for all the well-wishes with the surgery recovery!  I'm basically back to normal (for me, anyway) now (yay!).  So, back to the stuffing for me :).

Surgery Done! On to new Musers!

So, last Tuesday I had a total hysterectomy and 1 ovary with a tumor larger than a grapefruit removed (ewwwwww).  Now I'm getting back to work (yayyy!!), and am feeling almost back to normal (thank you laparoscopy and robotic surgery!!).

Here are some photos of the latest Musers, pre-stuffing:

The 2 guys in the top left of this photo will never make it to Etsy because they are for my lil sis, who is preggers with twins! But if you like them, I can make more :).

Hamster Lump :)
The 2 for my sis!
Now I just need to get my stuffing on!
