In a totally unexpected turn around, the pins arrived yesterday! I wasn't expecting them until next week and so was quite surprised to get a shipping notification on Monday. 
 
I'm still waiting on the backing cards to arrive. haha!
 
Well, these little pins will be joining my shop later today and the 10% sale currently running will be applicable. They will ship early next week.

It's all about the packaging


I don't talk about it often, but with Etsy's new features, I wanted to make it abundantly clear. When you order a doll from Moon's Creations, I wrap them in these cute packages for FREE.

If you let me know the doll is going to be a gift, I leave the back of the bunny tag blank, so you can write your own message, or add a specified message. Otherwise it says, "thank you."

I've always wanted my dolls to be a gift to my customers, even if it's a gift to themselves.

For orders, which are larger than my bags can hold, I will wrap the doll(s) in tan tissue paper and tie it up with some white string, topping the package with a doily and attaching a tag to the string.

I want my customers to feel they are appreciated.

Holiday Dolls and a Holiday Sale!


Oh my goodness! My fingers have been busy! I've been making all sorts of little dolls for the holiday season.

My goal is to have them all listed by Thanksgiving. I only have one more to complete and that's because it accidentally got put into the wrong work bag.


All of the dolls featured here are currently available for purchase!

Holiday Shoppers, here are my order cut-off dates for the season if you need a doll delivered by December 24th:
United States Destination - Order by December 15
International Destinations - Order by December 1

Moon's Creations will be closing for the holidays on December 16th and reopening in the new year. I have little children who need some attention from their mother. Thank you for your understanding.

Zazzle Sale

I'm not sure if I've posted here before, but my husband and I started a shirt shop! For years we had a pipe dream of selling our own shirt designs, but due to the size of our house and small children, our dream was just that. Until I realized I could have Zazzle do everything for me. Mwahaha!

Today you can use coupon code CLOTHINGSALE to save up to 40% on T-shirts, Leggings, and more from Zazzle! This code is only good for today.

Here are a few of my more favorite shirts we've recently added to the shop! Each of these shirts are customizable and available in a variety of shirt styles and colors!

31 Amigurumi in October: Day 31


Happy Halloween!!!
We did it! We made it through a 31 Amigurumi in October series, plus a second daily series, and I didn't lose my mind... well not too much.

I had so many people hope I'd made a Gengar Moon Bun and I really wanted to, but I could not for the life of me figure out how to translate Gengar's design into a Moon Bun. Luckily I ran across this idea of a Pikachu in a Gengar costume and just had to make my own version.

This doll was reserved by one of my Patreon patrons. If you'd like to get a cut the line pass too, please consider joining us at the $3 level. I'm also giving away this sweet Edgar Allen Poe and Raven set to a random patron.


Every level from $1 and up are eligible for the giveaway. Today is your last day to join for the Poe doll, but I give a doll away every month. If you'd like to become a Patreon Patron, please click here:

Finally, today's prompt for the October Create a Day was "your choice." This was the hardest decision for me, because I'm terrible about making decisions. I waffled right up until this weekend and finally decided to make these cute Skeleton Bride and Groom Moon Buns, because not only is today Halloween, but it's also my 13 year wedding anniversary! Yay! I haven't killed my husband yet! (Haha! I kid, sometimes...)

It is because my anniversary is Halloween that I originally decided to start the 31 Amigurumi in October series. Now, that I know I can manage a month long series, I'm already making plans for next year's series as well as a few week-long series throughout the year, because it's fun!

Thank you for following along with the series this month! I hope you enjoyed the dolls as much as I enjoyed making them!

Love,
Marcy

31 Amigurumi in October: Day 30

We're almost there! Can you believe it? Tomorrow is the last dolls for this series. My wrists are going to appreciate a brief rest before I run straight into working on making dolls for the holidays and for upcoming show, MagFest!
 

Today's doll for the 31 Amigurumi in October is the Alola Marowak. I love that they made Marowak into a ghost-type due to the sadness of the Cubone/Marowak story. So sad!!!!

Here's a little snippet from Cubone:

It is called the Lonely Pokémon because of its tendency to keep to itself and avoid social situations, as it was apparently traumatized by the death of its mother. Cubone will often weep at night in mourning of its mother. When Cubone cries, the skull that it wears on its head vibrates and emits "a plaintive and mournful sound." On the night of a full moon, the cries are said to be especially terrible. Cubone seems to recognize its mother in the moon, and so it howls with a particular sadness.


The prompt for today's October Create a Day is "Grim Reaper" and so... here's a Grim Reaper Moon Bun!

Both dolls are available at Moon's Creations.

Now I've got to go listen to today's Lore Podcast! Catch you later alligator!

31 Amigurumi in October: Day 28



Today's Pokemon inspiration is honestly one I've never played, but it's so cute, Gothita. It's a little Gothic Lolita inspired Pokemon!


And here's my version of Frankenstein's Monster for the October Create a Day! I've make a Frankenstein Monster many times before, but honestly, I think this is my best version yet.

Sorry for being rather blah today with my promotions, I took my children trick or treating this morning at our local downtown. It was fun, but now my brain is fried. I wish I could take a nap.


Oh! While I've got your ear, my husband and I have been working on a Zazzle shop! We've often talked about making shirt designs with screen printing, but our small house and small children just won't allow it, so rather than have our dreams crushed, we turned to Zazzle to make products.

Right now you can save up to 40% on most products using promo code: ZGIFTSDEAL40 (This deal is good through October 29.)

31 Amigurumi in October: Day 27



Halloween is only a few days away! Have you picked out your costume? Are you even dressing up? I'm going to be dressed as a "stressed out mother", hahaha! Oh, I may pull something out of my closet, but most likely "stressed out mother" is going to be my default costume.

This little Moon Bun is ahead of the game, as a Ghastly!


With a prompt of Halloween Movie, it's hard to not go literal and create Micheal Myers. However oh gosh this doll gave me so much trouble. I didn't think I'd have it complete in time. (Wanna know a secret, I'm a total sissy and can't watch most horror films. I'm too scared!!!)

Both dolls are currently available at Moon's Creations!

Patreon Monthly Giveaway Dolls


Please excuse me for releasing this photo so late, I've been a little busy, as you can probably imagine, but I'm super proud of myself for keeping up with two challenges this month. However can we say never again. One series per month is my limit... at least until the children are older.

Sorry for the tangent! These are the dolls which will be given away to one of my lucky Patreon patrons! It's an Edgar Allen Poe Moon Bun, complete with a book and a little Raven. D'aww!

The rules are every Patreon supporters name is tossed in a hat (often an empty coffee cup on hand) and one winner is chosen! It doesn't matter if you pledge $1 or $20 all of my Patreons are valuable to me.

If you'd like to join my Patreon family, I'd love to have you.
