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!
