time for a luuuu-lette update!

How were your weekends? I had so much fun reading about all of your plans!! As usual I'm so far behind in responding to you all...but the next couple days I'm going to catch up with you all:) I've been knee deep in printer set-ups, loft re-arranging, and clay sculpting!! And my poor little Henry has a MISERABLE cold...really sad. And we all know how well 3 year olds handle being sick. Poor guy just wants to play and he can hardly breathe:(:(:( First let me show you some sneak peeks of my new little lulettes that will be at the shop update tonight!! I'm so sorry...but I won't be able to take any reservations on these:( If you are interested in me creating something special just for you...I would be thrilled to do it! Just send me a message through etsy right here.

10 new little lulette houses...see the 2 with tiny birds on top of the roofs!? Several of these have a lot more detail than the ones I've sold before...so they will be a little more money...

Next are some peeks at my dollies...they are teeny tiny at about 3 inches tall each...except for my birthday blondie with the cupcake. She is attached to a little wooden block and the whole thing is about 6 inches tall. (you can click on the pictures to make them huge)






There's also this little French couple:) They are sculpted busts (right under 2 inches tall) with vintage french text on the front (le monsieur and la dame) and the english words on the back...(the gentleman, the lady). They are painted and sealed with a satin glaze. I really like how these turned out and will work on more of these....they are so funky!!

UH OH...UPDATE ON THE FUNKY FRENCH COUPLE!!

MY MOM DESPERATELY WANTS TO BUY THESE FROM ME...SO I'M BREAKING THE
NO RESERVATIONS RULE FOR MY MOM!!! (it's my Mom! I can't say no to my Mom!!) I'M SO SORRY THESE WON'T BE AVAILABLE...I PROMISE TO MAKE MORE!!!

There will be a couple more tiny birds with cone hats too. I just didn't get photos yet. And finally a few pics. of how your little lulettes will arrive:) Seriously one of my favorite parts is wrapping up your purchases. I know...I really should get out more often;)

I'll be over at the shop at 9:00 p.m. (that's New York time...EST) tonight (Monday) to start listing everything:)

Speaking of etsy shops there are a couple shops that you have to go peek at and save as a favorite. Coco opened an etsy shop and she has the cutest handpainted flower pots! Such a great gift idea...AND Jackie of Fat Jak Originals opened an etsy shop with her adorable paper clay creations. I'm so lucky to have one of her sweet dollies and I love her!!

Oh yes...and the printer! It is all set up. Thank you SOOO much to my husband for that!! I just have to get the hang of it and try out some different things before I offer prints:) Oh...and a few of you asked which one I went with. I got the Epson R1900. I feel like I got a Cadillac...it is sooo nice. I keep thinking "what am I doing with a piece of equipment this nice???? Am I nuts???" But I know it's a good investment in my business and I just have to get over it!!

See you guys later!! xoxoxo...jenn

My eyeballs hurt they are all so cute! There is going to be an etsy war over those houses and dollies you know! You really are great at packaging. It just makes the whole thing more fun doesn't it? Excited for the printer! Oh, and poor mr. sicky. Sounds like an acceptable tv day! At our house those are the days my kids are allowed to open the hide-a-bed and watch movies. Because I just can't take the whining! Good luck with the update!

Well wishes to Henry:) I hope he's felling better soon.
The new stuff looks great....what a productive girl you've been! I'll try to get my butt to the computer tonight.
Good luck, even though I know you don't need it.

Wonderful, wonderful update! I love the pictures of all the houses in the bucket, it looked like a wonderful Easter basket with all of that great color. It was so sweet of you to mention me on your blog, it made my day! Hope your little one is feeling better soon, summer is so close - good-bye to colds.
