Welcome back Wigly...


Please give "Wigly" a big hug!! He loves that, afterall he was designed with long arms and legs to do just that!! :D Wigly is one of my earlier designs, created from my "Scooter" pattern. He has been on display at a Teddy Bear shop in Brisbane and has just been returned to me. He is now looking for a permanent home. To adopt Wigly, please visit my shop.

BIRTHDAY BOOK IN SHOP




Thank you to everyone who have purchased my Birthday Book. It's been much loved and I'm so happy to hear positive feedback from those who have a copy. Some have emailed me to ask if jennylovesbenny's Birthday Book will be available from my online shop. Well, you can now purchase the book directly from my website under Supplies. Currently I only carry the hard cover - image wrap format. Bear Essence also carries this hard cover in their shop. For other formats, you can still purchase them directly from Blurb.
Thank you for your wonderful support! :D

Pom Pom's new hat!


Since Christmas is way past, it was time to give "Pom Pom" a new hat and scarf to wear...okay, he has been nagging at me for the past month and I did promise that I will once I get a new crochet needle and some yarn. He's very chuffed with his new look and I think it makes him look a little smarter too!! "D

Pom Pom is still available for adoption, please click here for more photos and adoption details.

Snövit and her pets


Do you remember my little girl "Snövit" in my earlier posts? Well, I'm so thrilled to say she's finally complete with her grumpy kitten "Sturt" and blue puppy "Nanna" by her side. This was a very special custom order and I want to say thank you to their new mommy for asking me to create something that signifies a special meaning for her. This trio is created with the Swedish colour theme and they're off to their new home to live with their new mommy, happily ever after!

Yum Yums and Macaroons...


Every so often I need my sugar hit and macaroons just hits the spot!!!! :D
As many times I'd failed at making creme brulee, I failed just as many times making macaroons! Both are my favourite desserts and to me, they go hand in hand as one requires only egg yolks while the other requires only egg whites. Therefore, it only makes sense to make macaroons followed by creme brulee...

I never thought macaroons were that difficult to perfect and yes, I'm pleased to say while I've perfected my creme brulee, at the same time, I have also perfected my macaroons after the 10th attempt!! Though it doesn't look as nice but, if I must say so myself, I think they taste just as nice as those purchased from the Lindt cafe! (and DH even agrees) ;D
