Made to Order

Over the month of January, new “Made to Order” listings will be appearing at Moon’s Creations. These are designs which I have made in the past.

Previously, I have kept a large stock of dolls on hand. This has become a huge time sink for me as I’ve increased my inventory. Spending so much of my time restocking dolls, which may or may not sell, has kept me from stocking fun designs I have wished to revisit. I want to change this in the new year.

Productivity will greatly benefit from this change, because I’ll have more time to devote on dolls people truly want and not dolls I think people will like. In addition, this move will free up studio time to create entirely new dolls.

“Made to Order” dolls will take 1 to 2 weeks to ship. Because these dolls will be made as they are ordered, I will be able to offer small custom  changes, such as yarn color. Orders placed containing stock and “Made to Order” items will ship together to save on shipping fees.

Here’s to a fantastic New Year and lots of new Moon Buns!
Bunny Hugs!

After Thanksgiving Sales Announcement: 1

Lucky Bags! (or Fukubukuro)
Going on sale at Moon’s Creations this Thursday at 8pm EST, these special lucky bags will be made available. They will contain 3-4 assorted dolls, buttons, necklaces, charms, stickers, and items not yet added to the store! The price of these items alone would be well worth over $70, but will be sold for only $50! Quantities are very limited.

Because I want to put as many goodies as possible in the bags, Moon’s Creations will close from 8pm on Wednesday through 8pm on Thursday so I can prepare the bags. I will post here as soon as the shop re-opens.

Stay tuned for more sales announcements!

13 Buns of Halloween - Zombie Moon Bun
Staggering into the 13 Buns of Halloween series, it's a Zombie Moon Bun! He'd be happy to eat your brains for you, but he'd be happy to trade you for a turtle. He just really likes turtles.

Just one more day left of the 13 Buns of Halloween. I hope you've enjoyed the series!

13 Buns of Halloween - Vampire Moon Bun and Octopus Moon Bun
 Today's design is an Octopus Moon Bun!
This design makes me laugh so hard.
Yesterday's design was a Vampire Moon Bun. I'm so sorry for missing this post here yesterday. Life kinda just blew up everywhere and hasn't stopped until well.. ok, it hasn't stopped at all. Life at a fast pace with little ones.

13 Buns of Halloween - Owl Moon Bun
Whoo! Whoooooo! Who is this little Owl Moon Bun knocking at my door?
I think this might be my most favorite so far. Don't get me wrong, I've absolutely loved each doll I've made for the 13 Buns of Halloween, but I think this one's my favorite. I don't think I'd be sad if this one doesn't sell.
Do you ever keep any of your artwork?
I usually don't. In fact, I only own 2 Moon Buns. A Robert Smith-inspired Moon Bun and an Azuki-Arai Moon Bun.  I couldn't find it in my heart to separate myself from them. Although in fairness, I did offer the Azuki-Arai for sale and celebrated internally when no one bought him. haha!

13 Buns of Halloween - Devil Moon Bun
Today's Moon Bun for the 13 Buns of Halloween is a Devil Moon Bun. I really enjoyed this one too. The devil face on the hood is just too sweet. 

I've been trying to get the shop ready for the coming holidays, but I still feel like I need a million hours to get all the dolls I want made. I'm also planning on taking part of NaNowriMo this November. Yikes! I don't see any sleep in my future.

13 Buns of Halloween - Mummy Moon Bun
This one made me laugh. The goofy and totally non-threatening expression makes me cackle. 
I made comment on other sites about mummy's curses, but maybe I should have warned myself. Swipey (our baby girl) has thrown her sleep schedule to the wind and I am exhausted. Our Bun (2 year old boy) in an act of solidarity seems to have decided to fight naptime. Ah well, at least they're cute.
