The "Studio"

Recently, as part of an application to a spring art and craft show, I was asked to take photos of my "studio" space. This made me quite nervous. My "studio" is simply the seriously outdated, spare room of our house! A tiny space with no room for storage, I had no idea how I was going to make the shots of my "studio" look ok!

I spent a day tidying, and waited a few more to get the perfect light (which did not happen). In the end, with a little help from photoshop, I think the photos captured the fun and quirky side of me and my monsters. Here are a few and I will let you know how my application goes!

2012 Sneek Peek

This cute munchkin is the first of a series of four that will be ready for 2012. We are testing out this great site called Spoonflower. It is amazing! You can print your own custom fabrics to use for all your crafty projects. You can even shop for fabrics created by other artists. Moxy + Toots thought it would be so fun to make stuffed toys using illustrations of these sweet faces! Hopefully you love them just as much as we do! If the response is good - we will be making more for sure! Thank you Spoonflower!

Moxy + Toots decided that the best gift this season would be a mini monster to keep your keys company! We love it so much that what began as the perfect stocking stuffer, will become a permanent addition to the Moxy + Toots line and available all year! We will be making them in three different shapes, Moxy, Toots and Dot, and with key rings or clips! What could be more fun than mini monsters that can go anywhere with you!
