Hat Commission – Poppy The Dog

At the end of last year I had 2 hat commissions, one for a dog and one for a penguin! I’ll leave the penguin reveal for another day, today I am going to show you Poppy the dog!
The lady who commissioned it wanted a hat that looked like her dog Poppy, who is a beautiful beagle. Here are the pictures!

She has big floppy ears and a squishy 3d nose

And giant fluffy pom-poms! (Honestly, they’re massive!)

This was a really fun commission! It is completely my own design, and it was really fun creating it around someone’s pet :)

What do you think?

Etsy Finds Friday – Special Edition

A day late again…. If I carry on like this I will have to change the name to ‘Etsy Finds Saturday’! Doesn’t quite have the same feel though does it?

Anyway, today’s theme is a special edition:
HALLOWEEN!!

As it is Halloween on Wednesday I thought I would show you some Halloween-themed finds from Etsy ^_^ There is so many wonderful things so I decided to split my mosaic into 4 sets:

Costumes:
Baby Dress and Headband
Adult Iron Man 2 Ironette Costume (Really really want this!)
Children’s Witch Costume (Adorable!!)
Disney’s ‘Tangled’ Wig

Decorations:
Trick Or Treat Banner (I love how this has netting in-between each letter)

Clip Art Owl’s (So cute!)


Decorations, toys, bags and make-up:

Signs, lighting and buckets:

Halloween is not very big here in the Uk. I would love to go to America for Halloween one day! It always looks so amazing ♥ Are you going to/having a Halloween party this year? We will be putting up a few decorations, carving a pumpkin (If we can get one in time!) and handing out sweets :) Not dressing up though, I don’t have anything I could wear!

Whatever you do, I hope you have a great time :)
