Thank you to you all!

thanks! Originally uploaded by productof1987

I just want to take time out so say "Thank you" to everyone who's written me lovely emails and letters over the years. Your words has made me so humbled and given me such encouragement, especially at times where I feel overwhelmed by the work involved with JLB. Your beautiful words pull me through and knowing my creatures make you smile is the best feeling ever!

I wants to share with you this lovely email I received today. It just melted my heart...

Dear Miss Jenny,
I was strolling along on the internet when your cute collection of miniture bunnies caught my eye. They were adorable! I saw the website printed on the photo, and I decided to check it out. I did. I was amazed to see your talent, and I wish to someday have a little anime bunny as my own! I hope you continue making elephants, bears, bunnies, rats, chicks, skunks for as long as you live. When I see your work, I smile. I'm glad I got to see all of your adorable creations.

Sixth Grader Sophia :-)

I'm going to walk on cloud 9 now for the rest of the day...Thank you 6th Grader Sophia!! :D

Free dress pattern for your large chickadees...

Hope you're all enjoying your weekend. We've had such lovely sunny days and rainy nights these few days so I've been spending the day sitting outside on the deck and enjoying the sunshine while at night, listening to the pattering rain which I find very soothing :-)
I always find it hard to settle back after a trip away but I'm slowly getting there. Before I went away, I was asked to create a dress pattern so that you too can create a pillowcase dress for your large chickadees! Well here it is...just click here to download the free instructions. It is a very simple to make and I hope you have lots of fun decorating and dressing up your large chickadees! I hope to see them showing off their dresses at jennylovesbenny's bear family group :D

Snuggle up...

Yes, I'm absolutely starting to feel the cold!! Please meet my new bear "Snuggle" who's feeling very snug in her knitted hat and scarf! You've guessed it, Snuggle is another bear created from my "Petals" pattern just like Sniffles. Snuggle has just been listed on my website, she'll keep you nice and warm for the coming Winter! :D

Pink is everywhere!

Isn't this just beautiful? Here are some snaps I took whilst walking through Ueno park in Tokyo. It was cold and drizzling but that didn't damper my spirits. I think cherry blossoms are just as much to be enjoyed what ever the weather! I can't believe it was only a week ago I took these...just like cherry blossoms, time drifts by ever so quietly and gently fades away, the next thing you know, it's gone!

Home sweet home...

Four countries, four flights, two boat rides and numerous trains, bus and taxi rides in nine days and boy it feels good to be home! I feel like I've just ran a marathon though my friend who's about to do a 100km run this weekend will probably disagree with me! Thank you all for your support while I was away and for your patience. All orders has been processed and sent today.

As tiring and hectic as the trip was, I always have a pleasant time visiting Japan and I picked up lots of goodies too!!! Some of these fabulous fabrics and buttons will be available from my shop in the next couple of days.

oh...and I saw cherry blossoms!!!!! Will post some photos this weekend! :D

As tomorrow is Easter Friday and the post offices are closed, all orders received from now will be sent once I return from my trip on the 13th of April. I wish you all have a lovely Easter!! :D
