Thingamajigs are born into this world for a wonderful reason- to bring friendship, happiness, smiles and laughter. They are created through someone’s imagination, but not very easily............................ you have to wish for one! And if you are lucky enough to bring a Thingamajig to life you will have a friend forever as they are such loyal and happy creatures and the best thing is if you try really hard you can wish them up for your friends too!
Cara was born on 20th September 2010. She's drawn to anything pretty and her favourite food is bread and jam. Her favourite pastime is going for walks outside and she loves looking out of windows & watching the world go by.
Cara comes with her own name card showing the details above. If you would like to buy her as a gift for someone let me know the name of the person you are buying her for and I'll add it to the card with a little message.
Although Cara was made with great care she is NOT a toy for children- she loves gentle cuddles but can't take too much of the rough stuff!
Cara's height is 250mm or approx. 9.5" (inc. her ears)
Her width is 115mm or approx. 4.5" (not inc. arms)
Thanks so much for reading :)

The past few months have been ridiculously busy juggling wedding & honeymoon plans, my freelance work & looking after a toddler. I'm only now starting to see a light at the end of the tunnel! And its a Monday which means.................yes its Mummy Monday! I'm super excited to be dedicating this post to a lovely & very talented lady- Danita from Danita Art. A very busy mother of two & seriously I am blown away by her commitment to her art & her passion for it. She's a very inspiring lady who frequently works long into the night in order to create her beautiful paintings, jewellery & dolls. Enjoy!
At 1:00 I pick up the kiddo from school and run errands, get back to eat lunch and let the baby nap. In the meantime I use that time to check emails, sketch and do office work at the shop. Afternoon comes, we have dinner and I let the kids out to the park.
Around 7:00 we start getting ready to sleep and if I am lucky I can get started with real work around 8:30 or 9:00...

A day in the life of Melissa Moss
7:00 Sam (who turned 4 in July) wakes up. I can hear him on the monitor. He looks at his Star Wars books and tells very animated stories to himself.
8:00 I usually get up around this time. For the past 6-9 months Sam is able to entertain himself in the mornings for about an hour. To get this extra hour of sleep has been amazing. I have much more energy throughout the day.
8:30 - 9:00 I fix breakfast for me and Sam. Sometimes we tell a story over breakfast or read a book but then sometimes we just sit in silence while I am still waking up.
10:00 I try to get out of the house by 10:00 with Sam. There are several things we do during this time...run errands, go to botanical gardens, the library, the park, the pool or visit with friends. We're usually out of the house for 1 1/2 - 2 hours.
12:00 We get home and make lunch. If the mosquitoes aren't too bad we'll sit on the porch and eat our lunch.
2:00 - Sam doesn't nap anymore but he does have "quiet time" which is about an hour (longer if I'm lucky). He'll play by himself in his room but after an hour starts to open his door and say "Hello?" This means he is finished with quiet time. I try to get some work done during this time but sometimes I'm too tired and have to take a cat nap.
3:00 - Sam usually has an after quiet-time snack.
5:30 - We start thinking about and cooking dinner.
6:00 - We are usually eating dinner around now.
7:30 - Sam cleans his room and we read books until Sam's bedtime.
8:30 - Sam is in bed.
9:00 - 9:30 - Sam is asleep.
11:30 - I'm in bed reading my book.
12:00 - Lights out. My brain is usually spinning so it takes me at least a half hour to fall asleep.
