Oh no! - 31 Amigurumi in October Continued

Alas! I got really monstrously sick this month and try as I might I did not hit the full 31 dolls this October. (Don't worry, I will get to those last 7 dolls in November), but I wanted to share all of the other dolls I manged to get done this month.



 Alex, from A Clockwork Orange


Ash from The Evil Dead, Etc

Gillman, from The Creature from the Black Lagoon

Harry Potter

Pinhead, from Hellraiser

Most of these dolls are still available at Moon's Creations for you to take home.

31 Amigurumi in October - Doll 9

 I'm here with yesterday's doll! It's Audrey II from Little Shop of Horrors. I tried to recreate the cute little bud Seymour found during the total eclipse of the sun.
 I had trouble taking their photo because my camera kept turning the greens blue, but the lower photos capture it better.
I'm so sorry for falling behind in the series. I keep trying to be kinder to myself and remind myself this is supposed to be fun, but I've been crying over the stress of completing each doll. I can't seem to get the time to work on a doll and then yesterday I ran out of the yarn I was sure I'd bought more of, but apparently I didn't so I had to junk the doll I'd worked all day on. *sigh*

31 Amigurumi in October - 7-8

Ahh! Did I tell you I will be doing this series by the seat of my pants? That means the dolls aren't made I'm feverishly finishing them after my children go to sleep and sometimes things go awry, which is why Harry Potter is a day late!

Can you believe this is the first time I've ever made a Harry Potter Moon Bun? What has taken me so long to do this? Ah, you know it's always been one of those "when I have time to make what I want" dolls. And now is the time, mwahahaha!

Today's doll was going to be a Moon Bun, but when I went to add those ears, I couldn't it just didn't look right. So here is Gillman from Creature of the Black Lagoon. I always love visiting classic horror monsters. (They're less scary! XD)

All dolls are currently available at Moon's Creations!

31 Amigurumi in October - Six

Ok, so this is my third try at a Godzilla Moon Bun, but this time I had a little helper in my 6 year old son who thinks Godzilla is the coolest monster. This little one, and many of the dolls from the 31 Amigurumi in October series, are still available at Moon's Creations.

31 Amigurumi in October - 5

 Today's doll is the little boy from Ju-on, or The Grudge. A lot of the dolls I make for the 31 Amigurumi in October series now are remakes of dolls I've made in the past. The first time I attempted this doll was back in 2008! I have to say I'm over the moon happier with this rendition. I like face of Toshio but my hear goes to Mar. Mar is the name of the little black cat and I love this little kitten's blorp-y shape so much!

Plus, so heckin' tiny! I will definitely be making more little palm-sized kittens in the future for my own enjoyment.

The Woooorst!!!

Ah, yes. I'm finally back.
It has been a whirlwind of indecision on my part. Due to life, the universe, and everything, I was waffling on what the future of Moon's Creations would be, or even if there would be a Moon's Creations.

After much mulling during the past two conventions, I have finally decided to move my company forward, by taking a step back. I have to realize I am a human who is the provider for two little humans. I can't be all the things. It's impossible and so I have decided to stop carrying most of my made-to-order listings.

Through the September, I will be working on a few patterns, such as my Hogwarts animals. I plan to have the patterns available for purchase before the holiday season gets into full swing. I will also list a few of the dolls every so many months as my schedule allows for those who can't or don't want to crochet their own dolls.

All new dolls will be in limited releases. Dolls will be previewed first on my Patreon page on Tuesday, then social media sites on Wednesday, with a Thursday release.

Every month, I will accept a limited number of custom orders, because I really love making them.

So, that's it! Oddly, this is the original set up for my store. You will be seeing changes almost immediately. All dolls which are made to order will stay in my store until they sell out or expire. I have a few delicious custom orders to work on this weekend and plan to have new dolls left over from the past two conventions join my shop next week.

Thank you for your patience with me. I promise I won't let you down.

Moon's Creations is going on Vacation

Well, not really.
I wish I could say I was going on vacation. A bit of sand and sun would do me wonders.
Instead, I will be working on getting together stock for Anthrocon in Pittsburgh this July. It's my first convention outside of the anime/gaming nature and I'm also going solo, so I've got to make sure this convention is a success.

To do this, I'm going to be closing up shop on May 28th and won't reopen until July 10th.

Please wish me luck and if you'd like follow along in the behind the scenes prep work, please consider joining us over at my Patreon!

New to the shop: Frogs! And a Toad

Today, I've added a new design to Moon's Creations. These cute little frogs (and one toad) are a handful size and so happy. I love their faces. I've always wanted to try a frog and here's the results. 
 They are available for purchase now!


Wow! I can't believe I haven't posted since January. 
I'm really beginning to believe I suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder. It kicks in around November and lasts until April. Ugh. Do any of you have this condition? What do you to to fight it? I hate my productivity levels to sink when I already have such a limited work window.
