Gnomes no more!

Well i am sad to announce i am officially stopping all gnome production. This means my current stock will sell on etsy until basically all are sold out. When it comes down to it . they are so so fun but i think i want to move on to doing other things instead!

What am i thinking of moving on to?? Well i want to do more creative ventures instead of just the labour side. Things like making patterns of toys i already have like eggtart, coconut name it!
This is more because i think with this economy, people most likely are not into paying tons for stuffed toys but are more than willing to pay a couple of dollars to make one themselves. I now also have a kid and boy does that teach you more than anything what makes a good toy is one they can play with , and not just sit and look pretty!! So yeah i am thinking play food stuffies pattern and things like that..

I will also be more into doing art shows and one off things of that nature! I already have one that i am
getting involved in.

We are starting a clearance sale starting today!! Gnomes are now $10 and Cutesypoo Tees are only $6!!
So basically if you ever wanted one of my stuffies from my etsy shop, i would get one before they all disappear!!

Unpacking is harder than packing..

 I have been purging stuff the last 6 months and now that we are moved, it seems like nothing we packed actually works in the new home either! So..we are purging again! I just sold our kitchen table and chairs and a chinese screen as well as loads of stuff i am putting together for a garage sale..on the other hand we just bought a couch and chair and new dining table that are lovely! I am not showing it off until the entire living room is done.  This cute pic of xen making a mini picnic from a stool in our kitchen while i was cooking dinner turned out really nice with no effects added, i like the faded light from the kitchen window just turned out like that naturally!

Pics below are my new sewing nook!
This is our top floor where the stairs wind up and we originally had it closed off office but later on decided to open it up for a more brighter feeling. I had to get rid of so much to fit all my stuff here as it is much smaller than my old area. However it was all stuff i would  have probably never used anyway.

 This is the opposite side where we had them make a small shelf in the wall for displaying things.
The door leads into the an extra bedroom where the baby crib is.

This brown hutch on the right is my chinese grandmother's and i just inherited it last year when she passed away. It is in wonderful shape and I plan to sand it and paint it white. For now it holds my fabric perfectly!

Lastly a pic my friend Sabrina took when she was in the Sandiego comicon of my egg tarts and musseloom! I am ordering more to put in the store soon!
