VOTE FOR ME!

CLICK THE BADGE ABOVE TO VOTE FOR ME!

Two of my pieces have been accepted for the Designer Toy Awards 2013 which is really exciting news! I have some big competition but I remain hopeful. I would absolutley love to at least be in the top 9 perhaps, even though there can only be one winner. The only downside if I did win is that I cannot travel all the way to New York for the ceremony but they can ship the award to you instead. I know it’s not the same but that award would take pride of place in my studio.

I am going to be advertising my two works like I have no shame so that as many people can vote for me as possible. I feel as though my plush Elliot has that extra bit of imagination when it comes to capturing people’s attention! I would be really grateful for any voters so please VOTE FOR ME! You will find my work in the ‘Best Plush’ Catagory, just click the badge to vote!

Designer Toy Awards 2013 and Madrid

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….

UPDATE:

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:
