Snow girl

Snow White Dream Girl Doll





I am finally getting back to whatever normal is! My in laws had a wonderful holiday visit. My daughter got everything she could want from Santa...Including Hannah Montana's Malibu house! And my hubby is really enjoying the time off from school.
So now it is time to plan the new year. I have many new softie designs started and MANY custom orders I am working on.

Wait till you see the Mommy Lion Spring line!
I am thinking of including a line of note cards featuring my softies. Tell me what you think of that idea!! Also some badges and maybe even a few t-shirts with plush designs on them!

I would love your ideas and opinions!!

Here is my latest listing on my etsy shop http://www.mommylion.etsy.com
It is my Snowgirl...finally listed!
Happy New Year to all. Lets make it a wonderful year!

Spring Clovers



Get a jump on your Spring accessories! I am just finishing up some clovers to wear or to hang. Being that my hubby is Irish, I just love green plush designs... I have been designing some Irish "Lucky Charms"... Plush of course and I am coming up with a Dream Girl Leprechaun...maybe even a little boy! Check back and see. Hugs!!

Snowball Pin



Meet snowball! She is a small 3" x 3" Snow doll pin that I have just listed on my Etsy shop at www.mommylion.etsy.com
I start all of my designs from sketches. I then stitch the face by looking at my sketch. It is like drawing with a needle and thread.
Then I create the rest of her head and hat. The beading is the fun part. I love matching the colors of my beads and sequins.
I have a few Spring designs in the making now. Come back and see them in a few days!

10 Days Till Christmas!


I am not sure how to get it all done in ten days! I haven't put the tree up yet because my in laws are coming and they have visual problems. See we have a huge 7' white tree and I am afraid it will be hard for them to get around all the decorations. So tomorrow I am going to get a small tree and put it in the corner of the family room so it is out of their way.
Last night my husband and daughter and I the Middle School chorus class to the Virginia Beach Festival of lights. http://www.beachstreetusa.com/ It was so beautiful! A full moon glowing on the ocean waves and beautiful lights wrapping the boardwalk. It would have been very romantic if we didn't have a bus of screaming kids!
Anyway, they all had a great time including hot chocolate for all that sang.

On another note, I have a small illustration of a gingerbread house that I have been sending as a small tag with all of my Etsy purchases this month. Thought you might like to see it.

Candy Cane Angel Doll




I finally finished my candy cane angel. She is all hand sewn!
I wanted to make an angel that might remind people of the importance of prayer.
She is peaceful and sweet and a perfect reminder of how lucky we all are, especially now during the holidays!
I have started some of my Spring designs and will be making an angel like this for Valentines day! Stop back soon to see her.
