Is she in here?

I must apologize for being a bit quiet on the blog lately. I've been on a non-stop designing binge. Add to that building my website, which becomes an even bigger mountain every time I design a new toy as I calculate all the images, web pages, photo shoots and processing I have to manage to launch this thing....I have to say I was feeling overwhelmed..(which is my favourite word at the moment).

But finally, and thankfully, I have come to the end of the binge. I have only one toy design left to finish for this session, though I have a heap of excellent drawings waiting in line for the next round, something went click and I knew I could now take a deep breath.

Over the last 2 1/2 months I've been able to watch the development of my style and come to understand it, observe it and appreciate it. And I finally have a feel of just how Flying Star Toys fits into the broad road of designer toys. It's only taken me nearly 3 years but since my work didn't fit into an easy niche it has been a test of my endurance. In the end just sticking with it and following one's own ball of string as it snakes out of the labyrinth works very well.

I hope you'll see what I mean about the Flying Star Toys style bit more over the coming weeks.

Nice to see you surface, Florence.

My camera is a Canon EOS 30D.

Not cheap. But it is magnificent.

Oh, I am going to spend the day wishing I could plunge my arm into that drawer and leave it there. With me attached of course.
