New Freebie for June!

Hello out there!
May really went by in a flash for me 😀 I don’t know about the rest of you, but it’s great nonetheless because there are a few new things going on!
First off, thanks to all of you awesome fans, I’ve reached over 100k pageviews on DeviantArt! I’m going to celebrate with a brand new giveaway starting tomorrow morning, so be sure to check that out! In the meantime, have a look at this teaser photo of the prize :3

Giveaway Teaser

The next giveaway might not be too far off either ^-^ Looks like I’ll be reaching my next goal of 4k watchers on DeviantArt quite soon too!
DeviantArt pageviews: 100,149/123,456 = 81%
DeviantArt watchers: 3,658/4,000 = 91%
Facebook likes: 1,299/2,000 = 65%
Tumblr followers: 759/1,000 = 76%
Wordpress followers: 1,244/2,000 = 62%

Of course the next leg of the Monthly Crafting Challenge is also on the table! The new prize this month is the Umeboshi Onigiri plush!

201406D

I’ve made an onigiri plush before, but I felt compelled to try a different kind this time that has a slightly different shape. Most onigiri have some kind of special filling inside – this one in particular has an umeboshi, which is a pickled plum. I haven’t had one before, but I hope to try one someday ^-^ You could easily adapt this pattern to make other fillings or other faces to match whatever you had in mind since the original shape of the onigiri I think is so adorable!

You can get the pattern for this plush by signing up for email updates (found in the submission box on the right side of the page below the search bar). If you have trouble signing up, you can check out more info at the main Monthly Crafting Challenge page, the FAQ, or by emailing me. Also, bonus! for today only I’m offering both this pattern and the one from May when you sign up. After today though, the prize is just this guy 🙂 Though you can also purchase the older pattern through my Etsy if you’re too late.

If you’ve already signed up for emails, that’s where the challenge comes in. You can get this pattern if you make one of the projects from this blog, my books, or my Etsy then email me or message the finished project to my Facebook where I have a really awesome collection going of your creations! Keep it up every month and you’ll get a new free pattern, so don’t forget to check back during July to see the newest creation!

New Freebie and Updates for December!

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a fabulous Thanksgiving! 😀 The first of the month snuck up on me before I knew it, but December is here!
November’s been great, considering I got to hold another giveaway, and my Etsy store got a huge update (along with lots of coupons to share) x3

Sale

It’s only too bad that I had to cut back on posting freebies every week in order to balance my work load. That’s still going to continue for a little while, but expect to get another update from me this Friday ^-^ Hopefully soon you’ll get to see the fruits of my labor yet again just like with the Etsy update :B

Even though I just reached my milestone for followers to my main website, my next milestone might be just around the corner! Go check out my comprehensive work portfolio at DeviantArt and help bump my pageviews up if you want to get the next party started faster! 😀
DeviantArt pageviews: 88,246/100,000 = 88%
DeviantArt watchers: 3,405/4,000 = 85%
Facebook likes: 1,135/2,500 = 45%
Tumblr followers: 767/1,000 = 77%
Wordpress followers: 1,101/2,500 = 44%

Of course, the most important of the updates is the last leg of the Monthly Crafting Challenge for 2013!
I saved the best for last in the sushi plush collection, and if you’ve been collecting since the beginning of this little blog, this month you can complete your collection of 12! No set of sushi would be complete without a ginger rose and dollop of wasabi!

201312-December

I must admit I’m very bittersweet about this collection ending xB I’m sad that it has to be over, but extremely excited to start the new set of plushies for 2014! I do have a theme planned, though they don’t make as much of a neat and easy little package like the sushi collection (that’s pretty hard to outdo :B). But I hope you all like it nonetheless! If you want to take guesses in the comments, I’ll be more than happy to tell you if you’re warm or cold ^-~

If you haven’t signed up for emails yet, you can get this little guy along with the freebie for November today only, and after today the prize is just this guy 🙂 Though you can also purchase the pattern through my Etsy if you’re too late. Just sign up with the entry box on the side of the screen and I’ll send you the latest sushi!

If you’ve already signed up for emails, that’s where the challenge comes in. You can get this pattern if you make one of the projects from this blog or my books then email me or message the finished project to my Facebook where I have a really awesome collection going of your creations! Keep it up every month and you’ll get a new free pattern, so don’t forget to check back during January to catch the reveal of the brand new Monthly Crafting Challenge 2014!
