How lucky can the BOO!beloobies be?

Being lucky is a wonderful thing, and I've been really lucky with the publishing of some of my toys.  Thanks to some lovely people at Baba en Kleuter Magazine, I was featured in 2 consecutive months, February and March 2014!

Have a great week everyone!

Monkey-ing around!

I just adore little Manic the Monkey, and decided to start using him in some drawings.

He reminds me of a knitted blue monkey I had as a little girl.  This little Monkey had unbelievably long arms and legs, specifically knitted like that by my Mom so that I could carry the little critter on my back by means of curling it's arms around my neck, and knotting it's legs around my waist.

I miss that Monkey, I'm 36 years old, and I miss him.  I have such fond memories....and unfortunately in the course of my lifetime he went missing.

So I decided it's time to make my own version, and he will be coming out in many versions of himself....he will be illustrated, and hopefully my little blue monkey will live on in Manic's adventures!

Untill next time then!

I've been bitten by the Illustration bug!

Yes, I've been bitten, and I hope to keep this going all year long.

I've finally found my voice, and my own unique way of takes time and patience for it to develop...but when you finally can see it for yourself, you just want to keep I will!

Will be doing colour versions of all my illustrations shortly, and will be sharing it!  I will also be looking into doing art prints of the respective watercolour originals, so I'll post details of that soon!

And so it begins...

Slowly but surely this year has come....taking me more time than usual to get everything together.

I think it might be because we have loads to do this rather take it slow in the beginning....and warm up to bigger and better things!

Well, one of my first projects is some new Woodland BOO!beloobie prints that I'll be doing in Watercolours.

 Here is a sneak peek at the designs so long, I'll be posting pictures of the finished paintings as soon as they are done, and I hope to get in touch more often this year!

McBunny McSquare!

So the first animal in the McSquare range is finally here!  And just in time for Spring in South Africa, her colours sooo fitting!

It's McBunny McSquare!


She's made of super soft printed fleece, felt and bull denim.  Super cuddly to hug, and just all around fun gal!


Let me know what you all think of her, she'll make a wonderful companion to any lucky little girl!

Hope you all have an inspiring and laughter filled week!

McWilliam McSquare....!

So I've had this idea in mind for quite some time...and I finally took the time to make the dapper little gentleman!

He is called McWilliam McSquare, and he will be the first in a wide range of McSquares that will be coming in the next few months!

He is a big boy, measuring each block as 22cm, which means he turned out to be bigger than I expected, but rather perfect in the end!

With his debonair moustache, distinguished bow tie and unique feathered top hat, I'm sure he's going to turn some I right ladies?

I hope you all like him, I'll be keeping you updated on the next lovely group of McSquares coming soon!

Some Superhero Stuff!!!

  I'm sharing some new Superhero accessories that I made for a little boy, and his brother, for his Birthday coming up soon!

I can't wait to see how his party turns out, and how they look in their outfits!  How much fun is my work!!!!
