Monsters, monsters and even more MONSTERS! Tranifer creates these wonky little monsters that look so cute and cuddly. My favorite is the zombie steak and the little narwhal – and don’t forget about the ones with the furry butts!!!

Cute and slighty creepy crochet

I don’t know how old I am. Well I do sort of, but when I’m asked I have to work it out from my date of birth as its not a number that’s kept to hand in my head.

Cute and Lovable!

I’m inspired by people’s moods, whether they feel silly, sad, happy, or angry. I look for our unique flaws and idiosyncrises that make us special and different from everyone else.

Handmade Dolls for Kids and Collectors

Every so often I see a response in the “Odds and Ends” section of the featured crafter profile that catches my attention.

After reading through Joelle’s well written, thoughtful profile application I get to the “Odds and Ends” portion and see, “I hate answering questions like these.” I’m all ears if you have some suggestions on how I can improve the questions and/or crafter profile creation process 🙂 Thanks for putting your hatred aside and contributing to Heart Handmade Blog!

Repurposed Childrens Toys

I love owning items that I know someone has poured their heart and time into. I find them a lot more personal and appealing than mass produced items.

Whimsical Sweet Quirky Characters

I recently saw The Fantastic Mr. Fox and it was the starting point for several pieces. Of course, I had to make some cute foxes. I also made a rabbit wearing a dress that is similar to one of the lesser characters in the film. The aesthetic of that film is just about what I am going for with my art.

One-of-a-Kind Amigurumi Dolls

I get inspired by colour combinations, by things that happen during the day, by things I read in books. I am part of the Etsy Plush Team and that also helps with inspiration – we have team challenges and seeing other people’s amazing work always inspires me to work harder and try something new.

Made with Love from Warsaw

Made with Love from Warsaw

I have always been “against” mass production. It was easy in communist times to be “against”. There was nothing in shops so we made our own clothes, we dyed them. I even made shoes for myself. Everything was gray, so once a person was wearing colourful cloth – that one was automatically “against”.

Than the capitalists came. Everybody could buy everything. But it’s so boring! I spent almost 20 years in advertising as a creative writer and consultant, but I was missing something. When my kids were born I started to smell what I was missing. It was the “against” part of me. The roots of myself. So here I am – knitting, crocheting and getting ready to start making my own soap and lip balms! I love those moments when I make my stuff, kids are playing around, we have time to talk, to be together!

Making Cutable Critters and Nifty Niceties

I’m very much in nesting-mode and I just love the idea of adding a personal touch to my own home. Besides I consider my crafty playground as a wonderful place of quiet & relaxation.
