Well, this is it. I’m dipping my toe into the small business pool. Lets hope the water isn’t too cold.
Welcome to the new adventure that is Awaken the Toys. You know those lovely little pieces of art that your child brings home from school? Some, a few lines dashed across the page – “it’s a horse mum, see?”- others detailed pieces that give you a glimpse into that little mind. Well I take the ones you don’t want to lose and turn them into a one-of-a-kind Toy. Something your child, perhaps like my children, will be delighted to see brought to life.
When I first began this journey I was filled with questions. Can I do this? What if its a nightmare dressed like a daydream? (Oh yes I just did that Taylor Swift reference – I have a daughter. Thats all the explanation required. ) Will this work? Am I nuts? (er… those who know me, comments to yourselves. please.) But I have come to love the creative process, the joy of seeing a finished Toy. And so, like a little blue fish once said “just keep swimming, just keep swimming” so I’ll strap on my flippers and dive on in. Ok enough movie and song references. Lets get this party started… Sorry.
I want you to meet someone new to the world. He is a Tri-lippisaur, but we’ll just keep it simple, lets call him Lippy. Lippy is rumoured to partake in various tasty sweet treats and partial to a scratch behind the left horn against the trunk of nice old oak.
He is the brainchild of one little Miss 7 and a lesson in patience when using faux fur. Though zany in appearance his fur gives him pop and zing with the right amount of softness required for cuddles.
He’s a little bit cheeky right? That little tongue poking out, ready for yummy treats to devour! He appears harmless, but don’t be fooled. He small and wicked fast and has the charisma of an angry wasp. It has been known that people will throw treats in his direction and run for the hills. Mostly so he will not wander out of his forest and into their backyards.
From Awaken the Toys to you Lippy. Welcome to the world, may your adventures take you far and wide.
