Friend Feature  Have to Have: Hipster Dolls by Blue Raspberry Designs

Hello! This week I am so excited to bring to you Blue Raspberry Designs by Valentina Felce, of Orlando, FL.  She makes these sophisticated and edgy, one-of-a-kind dolls—and I have to tell you that at 40+, I am totally obsessed with a doll!  Each creation is an illustration (and perhaps a whole persona) that has come alive with sharpies, paint and a bit of muslin and stuffing!

Do you see who these cool dudes are?  Picasso, Van Gogh and Salvadore Dali!  Also don’t miss her Frida Kahlo doll, one of my favorite ladies.

CMH Studio  Customize Your Pillows at Cheeky Monkey Home

Hello, and Happy New Year!  This year I really got to know my customers, and I learned that I need to let people know that—YES!— we do custom pillows and personalization (a lot!!).  While there are many colors and designs on our Etsy Site, we also love to do custom orders.  A custom pillow (with a personalized message on the back) makes an amazing and memorable gift. I want to share some of my favorite custom designs in 2014, just to get your creative juices flowing….who knows, you may have a custom vision in mind too!

 

The most common request I get is for a new color combination or a different size of something I already offer.  Below are custom versions of the bunnies, painter’s palette and world map pillows we sell in our shop.  As much as I like the originals, the new combinations are pretty special too!
