It’s such hard work trying to post everything that goes on in my life, creatively and generally! I entering the Designer Toy Awards 2013 this year as I entered last year with one of my plushies getting further than I thought. So maybe this year I have a better chance! I only have until the 15th May which is very soon and I am not completely prepared yet. I will only be entering the Best Plush category so i can focus on the quality of my textile toy work. So far I have two candidates lined up.
I took my nephew to Chester Zoo for the first time in his life which was awesome. A lovely sunny day and all the animals came out so I could photograph them. There were so many baby animals this time of year which reminded me that Dylan is getting so big now!
I am also off to Madrid this weekend for a well deserved break with the girls. We have an action packed schedule in place courtesy of my extremely organised friends lol. I am sure I will be writing a post with pictures when I get back. So excited! I get inspired when I travel to different countries and take in all their culture. I am also a ‘zooaholic’ so will be going to Madrid zoo as well for yet more photographs. And they have pandas! Yay….
Madrid was so awesome and very hot! My friend was burnt to a crisp at one point. Having a nice break with the girls was just what I needed. Here are a few highlights from the trip:
