What's that famous quote from John Lennon?

"Life is what happens when you're busy making other plans."
Yep! That's it.
I am almost finished with my dude ladybug and my dark colored mouse and one of my slugs. And I'm trying to figure out how to get whiskers on my kitty cat. Every time I go to work on them SOMETHING interrupts me...geesh! It's becoming a bit frustrating.
But I'm still working on them. I have a few custom orders to tend too...I haven't forgotten those, and I still have so many other ideas brewing in the brain...
So never fear my lovable patrons of Silly Toes Productions! There will be puppets.
Oh yes...there will be puppets.
Until next time.

Everything is coming together!!

Well, I worked hard over the weekend and finished 1 puppet...I know! Go figure!
However, I did get a lot done with my list of characters. So hopefully by this weekend (knock on wood) I'll have my snake ready, my kitty cat, a mouse, a dude ladybug and my rabbit...oh and two mini slugs.
My mouse is finished actually. I just didn't have time to take pictures of him and post him. I need to add eyeballs to my snake and rabbit and I'll be done with them. The rest are in pieces but it's all just a matter of putting them together.
So just in case anyone was wondering when they were going to see more puppets in my shop, give me until the weekend and I should have them all done....okay, least MOST of them.

Okay, so I don't have pictures to show you, BUT here is a list of what's coming to Silly Toes Productions:
1. a Snake
2. another Ladybug (that's a dude!)
3. a Cat in a cute sweater
4. Two mice
5. a Bunny Rabbit in a cute sweater with a scarf
6. Two Slugs
7. a Boy (but I'm not sure how I'm going to pull off blonde hair??)
8. and a couple of more, but I left my list at home so I can't remember them.

So I will be busy busy busy this weekend!!
I also have Puppet Stands available. I should have gotten better pictures, which I will.
So COOL! I'm going to hit Joann Fabrics today to stock up on Fleece!!
I've been given some other AWESOME ideas.
1. caterpillar
2. sun flower
3. snail (which I am almost done with my Gary version from Spongebob - just trying to figure out the shell!)
4. characters from Jack's Big Music Show

So keep checking back. I swear I wish I could do this full time and make enough $$ to support myself. I need to win the lottery!!! :o)

Why is it that freight is so complicated???

Well hello visitors of Silly Toes!! I have so many new puppets to add (well, once I finish them) but I'm going to give you a sneak peak at what's coming up next?

Meet the Bearsky Family. I have them all ready to go, except I have to figure out the freight! I wanted to add them to my shop today but I didn't know how much freight was going to be!

The package will be bigger and a bit heavier as I am adding a handy-dandy puppet stand along with the family.
I also have 2 mice, a rabbit and another foozy bug to add. I've been working on those this weekend.

So for now, here's a picture to entice you!!
