We need to address the elephant in the room. I am NOT a professional photographer. I am inclined to photograph a nice meal, throw a bunch of Instagram filters on and then declare “damn I’m good”, when in reality I’m just a point and shoot kinda gal. Ok then, it’s time to build a lightbox. ~ Step 1 – […]

When I’m given a picture to transform into a Toy, I will sometimes sit for a while to think about the perfect story to go with it. Not with this fabulous little Toy. The story she is based on is a rich, well known tale, and has been around for quite some time. The character this […]

Come and hear a tale, a tale of two bunnies. Not just any bunnies, these are Abby & Lee bunnies, so naturally there will be a story.  These two are at a time in their lives where they are footloose and fancy free, there’s no time for kids… well not yet. Because we all know when you […]

However August being my birthday month (yes I’m greedy), I relished the opportunity, because no one wants to work on their birthday. So I ran a competition […]

This week has been a little quiet here at Awaken the Toys HQ. Not because there’s nothing to do, there’s always something to do, but because it is my birthday week.

Superman, Ironman, Wonder Woman. Who doesn’t love a superhero? But what about the heroes that don’t have super-powers? The people that plunge into the raging river to save a child, or the one who helps another cross the road. The everyday hero? Those are the ones I love the most. I met one in the most unexpected way.
