My Daddy

by Ashton, Age 4

Happy Father’s Day! Albeit a little early, it never really is too early to tell your dad how much you love and honor him. Whether we are moms or dads or grandmoms or granddads or aunties or uncles, we all play a vital role in the upbringing of children in our lives and communities. May we all strive to teach, nurture and love them so that they grow into healthy, productive, thriving members of society.  May we be patient and caring, showing them the way. Children are so impressionable and moldable; may we impress them with that which is true, and noble, that which is right and pure, in things that are excellent and praiseworthy!


Did you say “Doodle Jump”?

Requested by the Creators of Doodle Jump, Lima Sky

Yes, that’s right, it really, truly is the one and only Doodle Jump. What a really cool honor it was for me to be contacted by one of the creators of Doodle Jump.

I hope you enjoy him!

Buzooka Bunny

by Vicente, age 10

Be on your guard! Watch your back… Because Buzooka Bunny is on the loose. He’s a Rank 6, fierce looking dude!

But on the inside..he’s a Softie!

This amazing little guy was designed by my very own nephew, Vicente. He and his cousin are working on designing their own game. While the drawing is in pencil, he asked me to pick the colors. He was very specific, “No girlie colors!”

Keep on creating, Guys! Love you!

Nathan’s Mouse

by Nathan, age 4

This mouse was painted by little Nathan at age 4! Didn’t he do a great job? My photograph of the softie came out too blue, but the actual softie is more gray than it appears. I am still perfecting my sewing studio for lighting and such. 

I want to thank you for visiting my site! I always appreciate your comments and feedback.

Halie’s Mermaid Debut

by Halie, Age 4

I have been incredibly busy these past couple of weeks working on many projects. It was so much fun to create this little beauty for Halie. She has certainly reminded us of the fun of splashing in the ocean water or a nice refreshing swimming pool. We are looking eagerly forward to our summer. It won’t be much longer.

Speaking of things right around the corner…Mother’s Day is almost here, and as a mother I know that I cherish my daughter’s artwork perhaps even more than she does. Can’t you see that favorite drawing alongside its matching softie inside a shadow box, displayed on your wall or shelf? I can and I love it.  So, consider ordering a softie for that special mom in your life. Get your order in soon to receive it in time for that joyous celebration.

Thank you for visiting, and I am looking forward to hearing from you and seeing those beautiful artworks.

Meet Lilly!

by Isabella, Age 5

“Oh, Lilly, your smile is so beautiful!  When I look at you I just can’t help but be happy!”

Thank you for visiting me in Olivia’s Sewing Room. I adore creating softies from your child’s artwork. I have been sewing for about 26 years and have enjoyed building, crafting and creating artworks for even longer. Creating softies from drawings is the perfect culmination of my favorite talents. I hope that as you consider which amazing softie-maker to entrust your softie to, you will take a close look at my work, and know that I put a lot of love, time, and attention to detail into every thing that I make! You have choices! I hope you choose me!

Katie the Fairy Before and After

Finally!! Hooray! I have been having internet upload issues for about four days. I have been trying to get this picture posted so everyone could see Katie before and after. I do love living in the country, but this is for sure one of our obstacles. We often have slow internet. Now, my prayer continues to be success as I add more images.
