#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!

Thank you for supporting handmade!

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. :)

I first created this design back in 2011, and if I remember correctly, it was called “Pretty as a bride” (I think).

Recenty some girls spotted Sherlyn wearing the 2011 version and have requested that I remake this sweet and simple piece that’s great for everyday wear. I heard you, so here it is; slightly tweaked and now in two color options. This time I’m giving it a fun name, Roxy!

The beauty of simplicity, the innocence and purity of white. Roxy will take you to school, work, date nights and brunch with friends.

roxyrose

Add some floral fun to a casual outfit or polish off your look in a fitted dress. How would YOU wear Roxy?

octoberlaunch-colors

Roxy is available in Off white and Ivory, with limited remakes of each color. Please indicate your color preference when ordering.

I’ve been tweaking the design to get as close to the original version as possible, and have decided to stick with the less chunky version (3) for all future remakes. The 3 pieces below are in stock, (top left) 1. Roxy in Off white, (right) 2. Roxy in Ivory, (bottom left) 3. Roxy in Off white – remake version.

IMPORTANT *Please note that remakes will be done in the bottom left version (3) which comes closest to the original 2011 version.

Once in a lifetime, one chance to create memories that will last forever.

At the beginning of the year I decided that I would start working on wedding related products this year, and I did! Bouquets, corsages, hair pieces, I just haven’t had time to sit down and document everything properly so here goes nothing.

This is the latest bouquet I’m working on, and it is one of my favourites personally.

Unlike previous bouquets I have completed which leaned more to safe colour combinations, this one is a lot bolder and unconventional. It is still in the works though, but I’ll definitely update again once the arrangement is finalised.

bouqet-valene

My very first bouquet for Danny & Valene, I heard they got tons of compliments while doing their pre-wedding shoot in Taiwan!

And that’s just one advantage of having a fabric bouquet, you can get it months before the actual wedding, use it for shoots, travel with it, and then take it down the aisle on your special day. I can’t wait to see their wedding shots!

20130507_151716_Fotor copy

The second bouquet for Seng Wee & Xin Yi, a subtle, sweet bouquet of baby pink and ivory roses and peonies.

ivoryroses

Luscious ivory rose hair pins that were made for Valene. These are so versatile, you can pop on into a high bun or classy chignon any day! Who says only brides can wear flowers in their hair? :)

spencer-corsages

Spencer and a previous lot of peony flower corsages.

The question people most frequently ask me is, “Do you actually make all these flowers?”

“Yes, I do.” Each one handmade with attention to every petal, and as much hard work as they are, these flowers  never fail to make my day. Yes, making flowers from scratch compared to buying them off the shelf and putting them together in a bouquet is extremely tedious, but I believe there’s just something special about handmade that’s different. One thing is for sure though, these “forever bouquets” will make your memories of that special day last forever… :)
