Beeper Bebe Fellow Upcycled Artist

This fellow upcycled artist takes cute to the extreme! Here are just two of her adorable creations.

She makes use of a combo of new and reclaimed materials, ranging from wool to cashmere.

"This Bitty Birdie is an original Beeper Bebe design and is handmade from pure wool felt and all features are hand embroidered. It is made from a combo of new and reclaimed materials because here in the Beeper Bebe workshop, I like to find new uses for what is already out there to work with (for instance, her hat is made from the cuff of a sweater, her blankie from reclaimed fleece, etc)."

Bitty Bebe: "This bebe also happens to come to with everything a bitty bebe needs to get by (all except for your love, of course)--its own little turquoise wool hat, a little wool felt bunny, a red fleece blankie, a bib with a birdie applique, a comfy button tufted red polka dot mattress, a terry cloth diaper, AND a little bitty quilted box in a woodland patchwork print to put her to sleep in. Sweet as all get out, loves to play, perfect for holding in the palm of your hand, deserving of your unconditional love."

Blog Issues

Just a quick note to those using IE:

It seems that some paragraphs and the bottom of the blog isn't showing up correctly. I noticed this yesterday while showing a friend the redesign. Unfortunately I can't fix it at the moment. The error IE is bringing up can't be adjusted on my end.

If you are using Google Chrome you won't have any problems viewing my blog the way it should be.

Sorry for the issue!

Walter the Walrus - Not for Sale

Meet Walter!

I made this cute fellow today, while taking a break from the pre-Christmas excitement. As soon as he was finished my husband looked at me like a child looking at a puppy and asked "Can we keep him?"

...So Walter is not for sale and will has become our Christmas Walrus.

Once it gets a little warmer out maybe I'll make him a pair of shades ;) -- Walter is 21" long and his tusks are 4"

I hope everyone is enjoying the time with their family and friends! Don't forget to save some sugar for tomorrow ;)

100th Post & My Mixed Media Art

Hi all! I hope everyone is enjoying the holidays. Things around our house have been a little crazy recently but I think everyone is finally in the Christmas spirit.

I was feeling very creative today so I ran to my painting supplies. Of course I had run out of everything! After a quick trip to the craft store, I setup my array of supplies and got to work. My husband wasn't surprised with the result. "Of course you'd paint LEFTZ" he said.

This is a 11"x14" mixed media art piece. I started by aging the canvas, with watered down paint. I hand sewed the fleece together and attached the LEFTZ to the canvas. After finding some beautiful scrap cotton prints, it all came together. This piece isn't for sale, but I'm considering making smaller ones that would be available in my Etsy shop.

Let me know what you think!

Luke the Giraffe

Meet Luke!

I had tons of fun making this guy.. and actually my husband sewed one of the feet! He was a little nervous at first, but he did very well :)

This guy actually started out, in my mind, as a camel. But as I continued to cut the fabric it became apparent that he would be a giraffe. I've only made one giraffe before (Stretch) but he was a bowling pin LEFTZ and had no legs.

I knew that I wanted to give him overly rounded traits to help him look extremely adorable. Even with his big nose he sits up easily and is currently sitting on my sewing table.

By purchasing Luke you have helped recycle: 53 plastic bags!

If you would like to give Luke a home, find him and other LEFTZ in my: Etsy Shop

Another quick note: I plan on actually counting the amount of recycled shopping bags I use to stuff each plush. It will be interesting to see the running total of bags you all have helped recycle!

Today my plans range from working on a few custom orders from my Aunt and possibly working on a few new designs. This morning I spent some time re-designing Holly's blog. I tried to give it a little spunk, just like Holly! peace frog designs - blog

Scooter V.2

Scooter is available again! This is a remake of my original LEFTZ.

Read her story in my Etsy Shop


As I can't sleep at the moment, it has given me the chance to think about the upcoming holidays.

Slow down - take the time to enjoy the little things that may not come into sight with a quick glance.

Love - from family to friends, from the postman to the trash man. We are all people with beating hearts, souls, and feelings. If you can make this practice happen during the fast-passed holidays then it should come as breathing for the rest of the year.

Peace - Enjoy your time with family and enjoy what you have. The holidays this year, may not be filled with expensive gifts and fancy meals, but find peace in the good things and good times.

No matter what holiday you will be celebrating this year or even if you choose not to celebrate any of them, in some way you will experience them. Try going to the mall tomorrow... ;) Slow down, love, and experience peace.
