Welcome to Jenny Allsorts, my cheery little blog! Hello! I'm Jenny... illustrator, designer, and generally artsy craftsy person, and this is where I share projects, ideas and such, and natter on about this and that. I love all things stitchy, papery and vintage. Pull up a comfy chair and have a cup of tea!
All aboard for Planet Hilda! Have you ever seen such a line of cuties? I have had Hilda in my bloglines for quite awhile, and I must say that what she's been up to lately is fabulous. She's set up a display window in a shop called Ovo Estrelado in Portugal (where she also lives). It is amazing! See?
Her creations are whimsical, colorful and altogether adorable. Along with the dolls she does horses...
She has a blog, which unfortunately I can't understand much of, but who cares! You can also see lots more of her photos on Flickr.
I wasn't in the greatest moods before this, but after seeing her wonderful things I have a big smile on my face. I'm ready to go back outside and do battle with the weeds!
ps - there have been some adorable new scotties added to the Flickr group! Thanks everyone, they are fantastic!
This adorable scotty stuffy was made by a sweet nine-year old named Prairie. Can you say talented? Based on this sort of thing I predict the next generation of crafters will blow all of us old-timers out of the water with their creations.
It is one of numerous scotty pics made from my pattern that have been showing up in my post box. So I created a Scotty Stuffies group on Flickr similar to Vicki's Lambkins group. Now there is a place for all of you who have made (or plan to make) scotties to share your pics!
And did you know that Flickr beta is now Flickr gamma? Looks like they've made more than a few changes, and the add to group feature has been moved from the Organize Pics page to the main page for each photo. Just look at the little options above the pic (like add note) and you'll see send to group. You have to already be a group member for it to show up in the drop down list. Clear? No? Sorry, best I can do.
I'd say go check out the other scotties, but as of writing this post, mine are the only ones. So add yours and they won't be so lonely! ...whine...
Sorry for the lengthening gaps between posts, my Mom is still requiring much time and I have several illustration jobs working at the moment. And major apologies if you have commented or emailed and I haven't answered. I read and truly appreciate every word, I just can't quite come up with enough time to devote to a proper response. Thank you all for continuing to read and put up with me even though I drop the ball on a regular basis. I am well-meaning, just kinda stressed and scattered.
