Yikes... the "Holidays" are here!

I can't believe it is already time for "the Holidays"!!!!
With that being said.... it is the PERFECT time to order all your

my wonderful customers before Christmas day!

-U.S. orders must be received by DECEMBER 1, 2012 (extension from
what is currently stated in my shop)
Just to put a few ideas in your head.... here are a few holiday favorites!

Superhero Wedding

I did a custom order a LONG time ago
and am just now getting around to posting these
pictures that my wonderful customer sent to me! 

The couple used their superhero pegs to make a comic strip and ask the grooms
friends to be a part of their wedding. 

The Cake Toppers: Black Spiderman & Chun Li (from Street Fighter)... I had
no idea how she was either before I made her! :)

I also made 14 small superheros for the bride and groom! 
Each superhero had their own table at the wedding and guest
were assigned a superhero based on where they would be sitting.

Thank you, Shinlay, for sharing your fun wedding pics!!!

Recent custom orders....

It is always fun to get a custom order of something
new and exciting that I have never created before.  Uunfortunately I no longer
have the time to make 100s of different kinds of dolls due to
how many orders I am working currently getting... so you won't
see any listed in my shop, .... but here
are a few recent orders that I thought you might enjoy seeing!

 Have a great day!

Closed.... for a wee bit!

I am closing the store down for a few days... and will keep
you updated as to when I will be able to re-open!

 My brave Dad is having brain surgery on Wednesday and I am
going to be spending time with my family & helping with hospital
shifts.... along with a lot of praying!  We are putting our
trust and faith in the Lord that He will wrap himself around
my father and guide him through the next coming weeks.

I will continue to work on current orders that have been placed
and promise they will all be shipped on time!

I am currently booked through September... when I re-open the
shop, I will be accepting a few more October orders.

Please contact me if you have any questions!

On the Road....

My handsome hubby and I recently visited Portland, Oregon for the first time. 
 We had an amazing time and had the best tour guide blood can buy.... my aunt & uncle! 
They were so good to us and drove us around for 3 days showing us around their beautiful city. 
The visit basically consisted of a lot of beer & coffee (mainly consumed by my uncle & hubby)... bikes and a date night to Wicked!  Sounds like the perfect weekend... huh! 

So as a tiny thank you gift, I sent my aunt & uncle a peg family of the two of them and their
pooch.  Since arriving at their new home, the peg family has gone on many journeys! 

... on the road in their new RV
.... at the beach

... and of course.... beer!

Thanks Uncle Rusty & Aunt Susie... we had a wonderful time!

Shop Update

Thank you for your patients while my shop has been closed down for the last few weeks.  I have been working around the clock to catch up on orders after not being able to work for a few days due to the tornado that hit and loosing power.  I have officially finished all my May wedding orders .... YEA!!! And have started on my June weddings... so June brides: rest assured your toppers will be on the way SOON!

I plan on opening back up no later than this Thursday and will be accepting a few more August ... but NOT many!  My father is going to be having 2 major surgeries this summer and I am going to be helping my mother take care of him and his business so I will be unable to take as many summer orders and will be closed my shop for a few weeks throughout the summer.  SO if you've been thinking about ordering.... sooner is always better!

Thanks again!!!!


MIA..... Missing but very much In Action

It took a few months but I am finally coming up for air!  :)  It has been an amazing and extremely busy past 3 months... thanks to my wonderful customers! 
So what I have been up to my elbows in painting recently....
Yes.... penguins!  I was commissioned by the Fort Worth Zoo to make 50 African black footed penguins & 50 Rockhopper penguins for their annual Valentine's Benefit Penguin Party... where you can adopt a penguin in someones name as a Valentines gift.  Great idea... huh!

So here are a few of those little ones.....

In addition, a very sweet couple asked me to make 260 brides & grooms for them to give as wedding favors at their wedding!  WOW... you don't really realize how many 260 is until you are hand painting each one.   But I enjoyed making them and knowing they were going to give them to all their friends & family!!! 

So here is 260 pegs of the beautiful couple! :)

I have also listed a few new wedding toppers designs in my shop... here are a few!

Oh My... You Twisted Tornado

Yesterday, while my babies were at MDO and I was at
 home alone.... yes, painting.... a tornado ripped through our city! 
I have lived in Texas my whole life and am very familiar and
unfortunately very desensitized to Tornado Warnings/Watches. 
It is a very common occurrence during the Spring.  The threats usually ends up being
nothing or hit a field or small rural town that I have never heard of....
(not that it makes it any less traumatic or devastating to that small town!) 
But yesterday was different!!!  I have been on my knees before in
prayer before but nothing like I was yesterday.  As I crouched under a comforter in
our dark hallway and listened to the freight train shake our windows and blow past our neighborhood... I prayed unlike ever before! 
Thankfully my prayers  and so many
others in Arlington were answered.  Many homes near us were damaged but as far as
I know of right now, no one was injured or lost their life!  Praise GOD! 

So as of right now my poor little studio is dark and lonely.  We have been without power since
the tornado hit and thankfully have been able to make camp at my
parents house.  We have no idea when they will be able to restore our
electricity but I plan on going to the house tonight to hopefully grab as much as I can
to start working on orders.
I promise all wedding orders will still arrive in time for your big day and if you
have questions about your order, please feel free to contact me.  And in advance, thank
you for your patients while I try and get back on track! :)

Oh... and if you love a good twister...
 here's a short video of the tornado that hit in our area.  Our neighborhood is
directly to the right of the highway.  Creepy but amazing!
