Update of an update

I can't thank everyone enough for coming and shopping away at my update, especially a certain New Zealander named Virginia and a group of new friends living in Virginia....weird, isn't it? Oh, and I can't leave out a new friend hailing from my husband's homeland Germany, Suse! A lot of new people as all know who you are! Thank-you sooo much!

A new Kinder Box! I'm obsessed right now with exposed wood-grain, I love it. She hasn't been varnished yet and when she is, the grain of the wood will really pop!

Good ol' Baker Giuseppe is back and he'll be listed as well as a a new twine-keeper, Baker Molly! Rei with a top bun is also about to be listed in the shop! I apologize for being so slow with listing, I'm still trying to get the hang of things and I didn't spend any time with my girls yesterday so I was feeling "mommy-guilt" so I played most of the day with them. I watched my five year old Zoe, make a new was really cute. They both had scooters and scooted around the cul-de-sac together as if they'd been friends forever while Jaida chased the two of them around...why can't friend-making be that easy when you get older? Oh, to be 5 again. :)

Speaking of those two, I promised I'd watch a movie with them so I had better post and go! :D I hope everyone had an awesome weekend!

Shop update tomorrow!

Without further ado here is a sneak peak before the update! :D

New Kokeshi Spool Dolls including our first blonde boy, Easter Special Editions, beautiful open-eyed girls, and a kissing Yuki Doll!

What is a baby without baby fat? Into this world they were born clad only in their birthday suits and look at them now! All fattened up with bakers twine!

My new Baby Bakers! They are tiny as you can see next to the sweet "Littlest Pet" but they are each wearing six yards of beautiful baker's twine! Plus their spool bodies fit right on your spool rack so they are functional and adorable! Oh, and in case you were wondering, our original Twine-keeper, Baker Giuseppe will be back as well. :)

New fairy-tale inspired Kinder Dolls! Also in tomorrows update: Kinder trinket favorite product right now! I'll be updating as soon as time allows tomorrow but I know for sure it will be in the afternoon. (I like to make big breakfasts on Saturdays). ;)

*Sigh* An Edit

Some of you may be here to see the sneak preview of the new stuff for what was supposed to be tomorrows update but, alas, a thunderstorm with great timing has us stuck in Florida and there's really no other way to say this; I'm afraid to drive in the rain. It's only an hour and a half to Dothan, Alabama where we live, but I can't stand a second of driving in rain especially when there's thunder and lightning added to that rain, and two of the most important little people in my life strapped to the back seat. I'm so sorry.
But...tomorrow evening I'll be posting the sneak peak of brand new things, and since the kids can't go outside, it gives me an extra day to work on more goodies! The update will be Saturday evening, seriously I promise!! :)

Gearing Up!

The update is this Friday and I will be restocking these little ladies... well as adding a new DIY Spool Doll to the DIY section (the top-side bun Kokeshi style) like this Yuki doll:

I'll be upping the quantities of the DIY dolls as I've been getting a lot of requests for me to do so....wish granted. :) I've also been very diligently working on my first custom Spool Family for a gorgeous couple and their three gorgeous children! I'll have some new (painted) Spool Dolls this Friday as well including some Easter Editions!

Check back Thursday...I have some new things to show you before the update! :)

A modest intro

Hi, I'm Alex and I, as per usual have been over thinking.

I know this is just another blog in a sea of a trillion but I've rough drafted more than several "First Posts" as if my very life and credibility depended on it and in the's just another blog in a sea of a trillion. And so like many "firsts" in life I'm just going to get it over with. :)

This is my family.

My husband, Ben, who brings home the bacon and our two beautiful offspring/partners in crime/comedy duo, Zoe, 5, and Jaida, 4, who keep me laughing and who ground me to what is really important in this world.

Everything I do is for these three humans. The loves of my life.

This month marks my one year anniversary as a seller on Etsy and even though my time is always constrained, I figured I could at the very least use blogging as a way to let my sweet customers get a sneak preview of products before shop updates! Also, I really wanted to have a place to go and just talk about non-work-related stuff, vent about things, talk about my kids, post about current favorite Etsy offerings, movies, books, so here it official outlet.
