So, since almost all of my sea creature softies sold out within the first two days, I worked up my second set: Circus Animals!
 Sorry to say, however, that the Circus Animals sold out in the first half hour after I put them in the shop.
Needless to say, I'm very happy that my Circus Animals are traveling to a wonderful home with a very special little girl this week!
That said, I'm sorry to have to say that I will not be able to put up a new set of softies in the shop until after our week-long trip to the desert for my husband's 40th. 
We are all taking a step back and remembering our roadtrip roots by taking the Q to Moab for the very first time next week. We'll be staying in a log cabin and  hiking/biking/climbing/exploring our hearts out for the next several days. 
Q will be taking a week off school for this trip, and I know she will miss her new Kindergarten friends, but the geological/archeological/historical/physical lessons she will be learning will be well worth it. I spent many childhood days exploring the redrock badlands of Moab and Canyonlands with my own parents when I was little, and I can't wait to show it all to Q.
I will have a brand new set of one-of-a-kind soft sculptures to put up in my shop within a week of returning from our little vacation. Meantime, watch my facebook page and shop, because I may well have one very special piece ready for the shop before we leave this weekend!


  1. This is wonderful !! All logical that this is sold out ! I have a question : can we make orders even though there are no more actual softies in the shop? I can wait (and wait and wait) but would be sorry not to get a little fish or whale !
    Have a great time in Moab (!!!!), I wish I could embark on such an adventure...

  2. Yes, you can make a special order! You can email me at maialarkin at gmail.com with your request, and I can make a special listing for the softie of your choice. So glad you like them! xo

  3. I would love that circus horse! Enjoy your time in the desert.
