2013 Week by Week #1

I started doing weekly recaps of monsters I made and fun events on my blog recently and plan to keep it going through 2013! It's fun to look back over the week and experience the creativity and fun all over again!

First though - how has the first week of 2013 been for you?! Leave me a comment and tell me all about it! Did you make a resolution? Any big plans for this year?

We started 2013 by spending New Year's Day at an indoor water park resort in Kansas City with Trace's family. It was SO fun! :D I didn't get any pictures (cameras plus water don't mix well, hehe) but it was definitely a great trip and such a relaxing, fun start to the year! We have been laying pretty low since we got home, just bumming around and enjoying the last few days before G goes back to school next week. ♥

I got back into the studio this week, and started work on restocking my shop after the crazy busy holiday rush! The stuffed monsters section is fluffed up, working big Mon-stors this week. Custom orders are still closed, and I'm on the fence about how to approach them when I reopen them. I'll talk more about that when I come to a final decision on how to handle them. I took all of 2012 off from custom orders save a few special ones for close friends and it was great. I was so much more creatively charged and the shop was busier than it's ever been. I can't ignore that and just revert back to previous processes that slowed production and monster adoptions down so when I do reopen custom orders, it will be on a very limited basis. Right now the plan is to keep customs closed until at least February, and releasing a new custom order policy by Springtime. Thanks for being patient with me guys! ♥

And as for the monsters! Well, here is 2013's first fresh faces! I'm including the ones from the last of December as well, they never got blog coverage because I took the holidays off. :)

As you can see, 2013 is off to a productive start! :D Can't wait to hear how everyone's brand new year has went in the comments! Happy first Monday of 2013!


  1. Love all of the new monsters! The one with ears (or horns?) Is my fav!

    First week was productive for me as well. Trying to get back into the swing of things with regular blog posts.

    Keep up the good work :)

    1. Thanks lady! Maybe they are hearing horns? Hmmm.... ;)

      Glad to hear 2013 was off to a productive start for you as well! :D Woot woot! Keep up the awesome work, can't wait to see more monsters roll out on your site!

  2. Love the new mon-stors, especially the pink ones! and i'm super partial to the bird cage one :-)!!

    1. Ah, that birdcage fabric is SO awesome! I am in love with it! Going to use a scrap of it to make some hoop art for my walls. :) Cari has such an AMAZING eye for fabric!
