I'm BAAAAAAAAAAAACK!

Hello everyone! I must apologize..I have been the WORST blogger this year! SO long since I updated anyone on what I'm doing or more importantly catching up on all my favourite blogs! Although I am WAY behind on seeing what all my favourites have been up to I have often wondered how everyone is going or what they have been making and although I have been really bad at blogging I have been super flat out busy sewing and creating LOTS of new things...
so firstly I should explain my absence....
Several months ago a friend talked me into starting up a page on Facebook.. Wickedly Divine Creations by Shelley Hobbs.. to show off my dolls. The first one I shared was this mermaid........


and some pixie faes......



a couple of bags..........


some fantasy inspired dollies

a faery or two


and since then my page has just continued to grow and grow! I now have close to 1000 followers and orders are just coming in left, right and centre and my free time for blogging..or anything else.. has been soaked up in running the page, answering emails and filling orders!
I'm also working towards a market night to be held on my Facebook page on September 1st to show off lots of new designs that I haven't had a chance to make due to all the orders..which I have taken a short break from so I can create new designs..some using patterns from some awesome designers and lots of my own.
I really have been trying to find a happy medium that allows me to work and play.. which most of the time is my work :)It has been exciting and truthfully a bit overwhelming with how popular my creations have been but I think I have finally got it under control and have come to some sort of level of organisation so I can update, create and message friends that I've been way behind on...but dont quote me on that ;)
I have too many pictures of recent creations to show on here at once but if you'd like to see more click on my link above as my facebook page is updated a lot more frequently than this one....

AND last but not least... today was a most exciting day for me:D My very first published project in Homespun magazine came out today in August's Garden Issue. My regular blog readers would remember miss Lynda Laydie Bird that I created last year as a friend for Danae the Rose Elf....Well here is Lynda gracing the cover of Homespun....I haven't been able to wipe the silly grin off my face since I got my copy ;)






and very soon Lynda Laydie Bird and Danae the Rose Elf are getting another friend to play with...Bebby BumbleBee will be joining them for a tea party on September 1st so stay tuned for lots more Wickedly Divine Creations and join me on my facebook page to see lots of my fantasy inspired creations.

Blessings to all

Shelley! I almost forgot how pretty your blog is! The magazine post looks fab; congratulations on this well-earned recognition. And oh so exciting on the dolls. I still look at mine all the time and marvel at her beauty and your talent. Rock on!

so you are still alive :) Be sure you don't push too hard and wear yourself out. Blame the job, but worrying about people's health is what I do now. I like the sleeping faerie and WAHOO on getting published!
