Thank you!

Belua Designs is now closed! It's been such a wonderful and happy experience over the last 7 years but the time has come to move on to new crafty endeavors. I'm no longer making monsters but if you want to follow along on my new adventures pop on over to the Wally&Roops blog or facebook page and say Hi!

Time to say good-bye!

I can't believe I made my first monster 7 years ago and I also can't believe that making these funny little creatures has been my full time job for the past 5 years! I've had an amazing time and met so many wonderful people but the time has come to change directions and start a new adventure. My fella, our pups and I are moving back to the west coast to be closer to family so I decided that this was the best time to close Belua Designs and focus on my new business "Wally&Roops". I just want to thank everyone for all of your support over the years and all of your kind words and laughter. I also want to thank you for sharing photos of your monsters and telling me stories of the mischief they've gotten into! lol! 

I'll be sewing as usual for the next 5 weeks and will be at the Old Strathcona Market until March.23 so you still have a chance to get a monster! I'll also be putting a few on etsy every Sunday until the end of March. 

If you want to follow me on my new endeavor pop on over to my Wally&Roops facebook page and say hi!

Thanks again!!!!

A Monstery Monday

I've gotten in the habit of restocking my Etsy shop on Mondays...initially I was going to do it on Sunday afternoons but I've declared that a proper day off from monster related activities. I've also finally gotten back into a decent sewing pace that allows me to accumulate some stock but not end up with cramped up sewing-claw hands (thank goodness I had a paraffin wax hand-dippy thingy in the weeks leading up to Christmas! lol!) I'm looking forward to next week when I can start digging though my fabric stash and adding some big guys to the table again. I have a few crazy ideas that I can't wait to try :)
The photos below are of a few of the fellas I added to Etsy today! Pop on ever to to read more about them!
Enjoy the rest of your day!

Whew! It's been a busy January! We've had some renovations, some arctic cold temperatures (-35c...brrrrr) and some surprisingly busy markets. But I've been able to start accumulating stock and getting my online store back up and running. The photos below are of little fellows who were put up for adoption this morning! You can read all about them on my etsy site:

I've also been thinking long and hard about which shows I'll be attending this Spring and Summer so once I've decided I'll post here! I hope you've all been having a great first month in 2012 :)
