#smolpuplife

(From left to right) Pupperoni the dachshund, Bailey the tiny dachshund, Rover the beagle and Huskler the Siberian husky!

#smolpuplife?

It wasn’t even something I planned or preconceived; it sort of just happened? I started taking photos of Pupperoni, this goofball was a custom order for one of my customer of many years. (Thanks Nad!)

And it seemed to take on a life of it’s own in a way.

I mean… the second photo totally looked as if he was doing a yoga stretch… and I just started getting all these different ideas..

What if…

So I made a second dachshund, and then a beagle, and then a husky which Nad also requested for.

Then I thought, since I’m pretty much stuck at home I might as well expand my creativity right? STOP MOTION ANIMATION! I’ve never learnt how to do it, but I could at least try.

And this was the result! My first attempt at stop motion animation!

I thought it was cute, a little pupper trying to climb up on the sofa and falling over then getting up to climb again, happens all the time in real life right? But wait!

“What if that could translate to simple life lessons?”

What if kids and adults (why not) could actually learn something by watching these animated pups? And even if it was just a bunch of pups running across your screen, it would still make you stop and smile!

They love laundry day!

More daily occurrences, the tussle over the sofa

Taking these photos and making the videos sure does keep me amused, and I hope they will light up your day as well! I’ve created a playlist on YouTube so please do subscribe or come back to the blog for more #smolpuplife updates!

I would love for you to share #smolpuplife with your friends and put smiles on more faces! For those of you who are new to my blog,

“Hello and thank you for popping by!”

I make these pups, alpaccas, owls and a ton of other cute stuff and you can find them all here!

I owe everyone my sincerest apologies for all the inconveniences caused due to the store move.

To cut a long story short, there was some misunderstanding/miscommunication with Yahoo with regards to the domain cancellation and re-registration process. Not only are they holding on to my domain (jeaninegabrielle.com), they have since completely ignored all my emails and emails that the Shopify gurus have sent them! (How’s that for professionalism, huh?) According to a domain check, they are not letting it go until 2015. I am just going to stick with the Shopify URL to avoid yet another URL change, until I get my domain back, or not.

Please update your bookmarks to jeanine-gabrielle.myshopify.com
For enquires, feel free to email me at jeaninegabrielle@gmail.com

No more store URL changes for the next year, promise! I hope you girls will enjoy the new cart system, you can also create a user account to keep track of your purchases. :)

On a side note, if any of you are wondering why the store @ jeaninegabrielle.com has not been updated in ages, it’s cause I have no technical access to it to make changes! Yahoo Sitebuilder runs only on Windows and I use a Mac, and since my Parallels refused to work and I haven’t been able to fix it, I’m in the midst of looking for alternative options. If any of you have good ideas on how I can move the store to another provider or how I can host my WordPress blog on my domain please do let me know, but for now all updates will be here on the blog! xx

Spencer, my first Amineko!

You’ve probably met Koko the koala & Emmy the holland lop bunny, now meet Spencer, my very first amineko! Which also happens to be my favourite of the three. (Shhhhh) It took me about 3 days to complete cos I didn’t really work on it all day long. After I completed it the muscles in my hand were sore for 2 days, but it was well worth it and I’ll definitely be making more aminekos in future if time allows. :)

20130506_112617_Fotor_20130510Spencer’s favourite thing to do is taking cat naps!

spencer_Fotor_20130509He’s pretty good at expressing himself, don’t you think?

20130509_172437_Fotor_20130511Spencer enjoys the occasional car ride…

20130509_172655_Fotor_20130511He finds sneaking around behind the cabby’s back very amusing!

20130507_120459_Fotor_20130509_Fotor_20130511He really wants a pug for a pet. Which I will get down to making, eventually.

20130509_155132_Fotor_20130510For now though, he is content with having quiet afternoon teas…

I hope Spencer’s first “adventure log” perked up your day! I’ll definitely be doing more posts like these, so follow my blog, and check back soon! :)

Happy Weekend! xx
