New Sewing Pattern

The idea of making a sewing pattern has been on my mind for over a year but the timing has never been right to get it done. I finally made some time and I am happy to say it is almost finished. I am waiting now for a few friends to sew it up to make sure my directions are clear for the masses. I love the way it has turned out and here is a sneak preview of the front and back of the pattern. I will let you know as soon as it is finished. I will post it on my Etsy store.

Easter Bunnies

I have been designing the perfect bunny to add to the Cuddle Wumkin clan. Here are the prototypes that did not pass final inspection but are still cute in their own way.
Her pear shaped body didn't come out the way I had hoped. She is cute but funny looking.

I liked his body but his feet are too small and his nose and mouth is too big.

Here is the final bunny, that I am going to make many of for my upcoming shows. I am also in the process of making a pattern so people can sew their own.

I went ahopping with my BFF and we found 4 really cute prints for the heart and ear appliques. Two are boyish and two are girly. I will be sewing in light and dark camel, chocolate and tan. I may make some fun colors as well if I have time. Be sure and check out my Etsy site for all the finished dolls.

Simplifying Life

This needs to be done sometime. If you find yourself torn to move in too many different directions maybe you need to simplify your life as well. As of one hour ago I had 2 blog sites and 3 Face Book pages. Right now I have 1 blog site and 1 Face Book page and it feels real good! I do realize that the more real estate you have on the internet the better but keeping up with it is tough. I am trying to run a business and I could literally spend all day keeping writing my posts. Something had to give and I think I made some good choices.

What are you doing that is keeping you from comfortable productivity? Can you make any changes to improve your situation? I bet you can.......

New Logo for Cuddle Wumkins

Here is my new logo for Cuddle Wumkins.
What is a Cuddle Wumkin you might ask? A Cuddle Wumkin is a soft, plush little guy that I make in lots of colors and faces. Here are a few:

These little guys are making children smile all over the country! My Etsy shop is low on product right now but I am busy sewing to take care of this problem.

New Business Name

I have been thinking about my business name Daily Whisper for quite sometime. It really isn't an adequate name for my business because I have never been able to merge Cuddle Wumkins with it. So I made a decision and it is now official. My new business name is BSL Creations (BSL are my initials). Yes, I know it isn't too original but I tell you, if you haven't searched a business name recently you should know that an original name is difficult to find. After 4 hours of searching I decided to go with this name. The name was used very little on the internet search and the domain name was available. Here is my new logo, created by Teri Kahan Design. She is very talented and I recommend her highly.


It has been a while since I published a post. We have been either working or ill over the past two months. I am happy to say that life is on the upswing again.

Last weekend we picked up our new hot rod. It is a 1937 Ford and we love it. It is a convertible so the top goes down for those nice sunny days or it can remain up if we are chilly or I don't want to wear a hat!
My husband is over the moon as you can understand.
