Hairball anyone?

Zippy Friends would like to introduce their newest friend... Kitty Zippy!

He is full of fishies...

... and a toy mouse...

... and a hairball!

Kitty Zippy loves sitting in the windowsill as much as any other kitty. Those birds aren't going to catch themselves!

Strangers like guts too!

So yesterday I sold my first Zippy Friend to a complete stranger! Yeah, some random person on etsy just happened across my little shop of Zippies and bought one! (Or at least that's how I imagined it.) Honeydew Zippy is off to his new home!

What do moms, cats and dogs all have in common?

They are all Zippy Friend ideas that I am working on for immediate release!

I just realized that Mother's day is right around the corner and I had a great idea for a Mommy Zippy. I also had a co-worker ask if I ever thought about making a Cat or Dog Zippy (which I have) and that if I made them she would buy them.

So I'm taking that as a commission! Mommy Zippy, Kitty Zippy, and Puppy Zipper are on the schedule for this weekend!

Spring Fever

Alright, alright... so I didn't meet my goal of 10 Zippy Friends in 10 days. That is a lot of Zippies. I will make more, no worries! Especially after how much my kids at school loved the one that I brought in. It was really fun to watch them open it up, pull everything out, play with it, put it back in, show someone else, and repeat. And I was very pleased how well Honeydew Zippy stood up to the attention, the stability of my craftsmanship is holding its own!

In other good news, my business cards/labels came in this week! Now if I ever sell any more Zippy Friends, they will have some nice tags to go with them.

We all need goals

I am officially on spring break. Yay! I have 10 days off and have decided that my goal is going to be to make 10 Zippies before the 10 days are up. I know, lofty. But I'm motivated and it's not like I'm off to the Bahamas or anything. Besides, I'm off to a great start! I just finished Honeydew Zippy tonight.

Wish me luck! I will be sure to update regarding my progress.
