Better late then never!

Hi my dear readers,

I would like to wish you a wonderful Christmas 
and a fantastic 

Also I would like you to meet  'Humphrey', he is a happy Mangalica pig.  
Humphrey is about 17 cm/ 6.7 inches tall.
As I saw a picture of a real  wooly pig I knew I had to make one!
I went haunting for a fabric that would match my idea of this pig and I found this amazing mohair.
 I have made him for my Hubby for Christmas.

Many Hugs, Mel

Almost Christmas...

Being kinda busy at the moment I totally forgot to post my latest creations.

I have made a little spider 'Vinny' with his ladybug friend 'Pito'
and for a familymember I have made a little bear called 'Peanut'.

I hope the TED Worldwide Award website will soon post a link for people to vote.
I can't wait to see my Zuri and Momma on the website.
I hope many people will vote again. :)

I am desperately looking for a Christmas present for my hubby. :(
 I am always good in finding special and original  presents but this year it's terrible! Urgh!

Hope I will find something soon. 

Anyways, here are Vinny & Pito

Hi everybody,

Finally I managed to finish 'Kaz' my little wolve cub. I thought he would end up unfinished in a corner but I gave it another try.
The cold is hard on my fingers and making it a little harder to work for me but it will not keep me from my creativity.

This Sunday I will go to Disneyland Paris for 2 days! 
Sunday Disneyland, Monday Disneyland and on Tuesday we will visit Paris and then leave to go home again. I am so looking forward to it! Disney Winterland!!! Yeah!!!!

I hope you all will have a wonderful weekend!

A short update:
The Teddies 2012 from Hugglets in London was fantastic! I have had a wonderful day. I met many new, amazing and nice people and I am looking forward to come back in February next year!!! 

After Teddies 2012 I enjoyed a week holiday on Kos (Greece). 
Sea, sun, great food, love and every day ice cream!
Back home I dived into the autumn weather. Cold, wet and rainy... but somehow I love it!
I am hoping to take part at the TED Worldwide Awards 2013. Somewhere this month I will hear if my two entries are nominated or not.... ecxiting! So fingers crossed!

I also like to take part at the Golden George Awards 2013. I just found out today I have to hurry up. Official closing time is November the 15th 
but the early-bird-discount is until October 15th. 
And I like discounts... so hurry up till October the 15th!!!

Many hugs,

Hi my dear readers,

I would like to show you my latest creation, called 'Becky'.
I have been making some bears lately so I thought: "Why not make another bear?" 

Like always I have a complete vision in my head of what my creation is going to look like. Sometimes it looks like my vision and sometimes I end op with something completely different. 'Becky' looks like the bear cub I had in mind. :) 
Although I had a darker brown in mind...
Like all my creations she is one of a kind and comepletely hand sewn. She is about 6 inches/ 16 cm tall, filled with plastic pellets and synthetic wool. 
Looking forward to Teddies Festival in London! I am so nervous but exited as well! 
I can't wait!

Hugs, Mel

I have just finished a new creation. It is called 'Momma' . Two bears but one name. :)
The mother bear is 14 cm/ 5.5 inches heigh and about 21 cm/ 8 inches tall as she is laying there. 
The little cub is about 10 cm/ 4 inches tall. Like always are they OOAK 
and hand sewn from the nose to the paws, filled with synthetic wool and plastic pellets. 
The face and paws are needle felted. 

I am looking forward to 9th of September when I will be going to the Teddies 2012 Hugglets in London!!!
Any of you going too?

In that week the finals for the URSA Awards will end too. On the 7th of September. 
So I you would like to vote, make sure you'll do it before then. :)
Share the link with all your friends because it would be amazing if loads of people would vote for the URSA Awards!

A short note to show you my latest creation called Nova. 
Nova is 8.7 inches/ 22 cm tail. She is OOAK and completely handsewn. She is made of a high quality mohair. She is filled with plastic pellets and synthetic wool and her arms are wired. 
The stars are made of polymer clay and glow in the dark.
(Personally I love the glow in the dark picture. :) )
I am already drawing a new pattern for my next creation. 
Always thinking about new ideas. Lack of sleep, headache and a little stressy do not affect my spirit of creativity. 
I could say my creativity and thinking about new ideas are the cause for my lack of sleep, hehe.

This Saturday I will find out if my creations are still in the URSA Award competition. Fingers crossed!

Enough for now, enjoy the pics!
Hugs, Mel
