My new squeaker rattles. These will be launched at lollipops - time willing, there will also be rabbit and cat versions of these!

Prize for the next lucky "liker"

For the lucky person chosen form my 150 liker list you get one (you choose colour) of my very new (only finished last night) treasure birds. They stand by themselves as they are stuffed with fiberfill and wheat for the balance base.
Why treasure birds? Because their wings are designed as pockets you can use them to store treasures. Put one on your kitchen window to put your rings whilst you do the dishes. Have one on the hall stand for car keys. Use them to store shopping lists or just write nice notes and leave them around the house. One industrious 6 year old I know is going to be using it for the tooth fairy! There will be many more colours to come and they will be selling for $22.00 at both upcoming
http://www.facebook.com/lollipopmarkets and http://www.facebook.com/pages/Mathildas-Market/76556028001 in Adelaide.
Thanks again for everyone's great support of my little business! hh

Well it seems people are keen to checkout my handmaidies on facebook. So much so that I am almost to the 150! Thanks for those of you who have backed me from the start and for my new likers this is what happens. . .
Every time I get another 50 likers on my handmaid by helen hedding FB page http://www.facebook.com/pages/Handmaid-by-helen-hedding/164762133564691?v=photos&ref=sgm
I randomly choose one of you to receive a free handmaidie. I will message whoever it is and exchange details. If you don't want to receive a freebie then that's fine too. I haven't decided on which one it will be this time but will have a look in my studio to see who is ready to go to a new home. Thanks HH

I am very excited to have been featured on Upcycled's Facebook page. http://upcycled.co.uk/
For anyone interested in my products please feel free to email me direct. Not everything I use in my creations is up-cycled but wherever possible I do try and reuse old fabric swatches, thrift store clothes and any other fabrics which have accumulated over the years in my studio. I can often make customer orders - keep in mind my supplies change and my creatures are usually one off's (but I can make repeats in different fabrics). I can post orders overseas and within Australia and am always happy to work on new projects (time allowing).
Thanks for visiting and supporting an independent crafter! HH
