Crystal Bearers...

Good morning everyone out there! First post after Christmas and New Years so Happy 2015 to you all! I had loads of projects going on before Christmas but could not show you any of them as they were meant as Christmas gifts. Here is the first lot anyway. My little crystal bearers. 

This white one were for my mum and it is carrying a little Rose Quartz nugget around its neck.

The grey crystal bearer were for my mother in law and it is carrying three little nuggets of Amethyst around its neck.

I had great fun making these and it was very interesting to read up on and learn allot about crystals. I will definitely be working allot with crystals in the future. And since I loved making these little creatures so much I am planning to do a limited edition run of 10 for the shop. I would love to know who is interested and I will be taking pre-orders in a few weeks hopefully. They will come in five different colours with five different crystals and there will be two of each colour/crystal available.

Forest Oracle - The Fox

 Hi everyone! So I have been very busy for Christmas, making presents and orders for you guys. I've decided to keep the shop open for another week and will be taking the last orders for Christmas on Sunday the 7th of December. What I wanted to tell you though is that this Forest Oracle is up for grabs in the shop. It will be an amazing Christmas present for anyone and super unique. It is a one of a kind item and full of wisdom.
 Her body is needle felted and her face hand sculpted out of polymer clay. Her eyes are taxidermy glass eyes and extremely detailed. Her face is painted in acrylic paint.

A Forest Oracle...

Hello everyone! Long time no see.... As you might understand I am super busy being a new mom and everything. My little baby Nova turned three months yesterday! Can't believe how fast time moves. The only spare time I've got these days I tend to spend on making and shipping the orders I get during the months and not much time is left to create new things. However, I wanted to make something very special for my mom on her birthday. So I set a few days aside and made her this Forest Oracle. It is a sculpture mixed with Sculpey and Needle felting. I love mixing the two mediums and I will definitely make more to sell. I am in love with the process and I love working with the sheep's wool. It even smells like sheep. Amazing! Anyway, hope you like it and I hope there wont be three months to my next blogentry. I really miss you guys!

About becoming a Mum...

I've now been a mum for three weeks and one day. So far nothing could have prepared me for this. The emotions and how hard it is to get things right. First of all the labour was hard, it took just over 18 hours and in the end I had to have an emergency cesarean. Going through the labour is one of the hardest things I have ever done but also one of the most amazing and strongest things I've ever done. I look at myself and at my body with a whole new perspective. I think we underestimate our bodies and undervalue them and it is all so stupid. Nothing matters anymore once you've given birth to your first child. Who cares about the stretchmarks on your belly or the little pouch that sticks out. You have just created another human being, a life, and given birth to the greatest love you will ever know. There is no greater love than the one you feel for your baby. If you have ever loved someone so much that it felt like your heart was going to burst, well take that and multiply it by a thousand and you might come close to feeling the love you will feel for your child, but you still wont be anywhere close. I look at her when she sleeps and my heart aches with love. Every time I have to wake up during the night to feed and change dirty nappies becomes a faint memory when I look at her. Every second of lost sleep and exhaustion is worth it. I wouldn't do this for anyone but my daughter. She deserves every second of my time and energy.

The first week was so hard for us. First of all the cesarean made it real hard to settle in to things and then when she stopped feeding the night after we came home things got even worse. We ended up in hospital a few days later again as she was getting dehydrated and I could not get her to eat. Everything looks so easy on film, but to be honest there is nothing that can prepare you for what is to come. You carry a baby for 9 months and then poooof she's in your arms and they send you home without knowing anything really. I do wish they were born with a manual but that don't happen unfortunately. I can tell you one thing though, the midwives in this country are something else. The support I've had through the hard first week has been life saving. These women deserve all the credit there is and more. I wish I could gather them all and give them a huge hug. Words just aren't enough for the gratitude I have for them.

Now that everything is working and my little girl is eating as she should and is packing on the pounds I finally have the time to sit down and look at the past three weeks and how strong I've become from this whole experience. I do cry an awful lot, I think mainly because it is so hard to get used to all the emotions I feel. There is so much that I haven't felt before, and the acceptance of my body that somehow always was something I looked down on, is new to me. I look at my "battle wounds" and I admire them rather than hate them. I feel so comfortable in myself and I think with Nova's birth I was re-born as well.

All I can say is that becoming a mum is the biggest thing I have ever experienced and that nothing else matters anymore. And I want all women who ever doubted themselves and their bodies to think again and look at yourselves in the mirror and no matter what size or shape you are, look at yourselves and remember what remarkable creatures you really are. You can create the greatest thing; LIFE and you can give birth to the greatest of love. Don't ever forget that, and think of this at your darkest hour. Your body is amazing! Don't ever let anyone tell you otherwise.

Ladybirds and Blossoms....

Since there is nothing else for me to do I will just keep the patterns coming. I guess it is a great thing as I've had the time to really focus on MobiLOVE over the past week. It needed some attention and I feel that I've finally found the originality I was looking for. MobiLOVE now breathes Emelie Jensen and nothing else. I never thought it would be so hard to give MobiLOVE an identity. The mobile phone accessory market is so saturated these days, and it is extremely hard to stand out and especially to be original in this sea of mobile phone cases. The good thing is that I've had to force myself to explore my mind and push myself to invent something new. And I have found another path along the way. I am researching some new products at the moment. I don't know if it will work or if I have to financials to sort it out. But I will look in to it. My aspirations as a designer has grown tremendously over the past month or two and I really want to see where this can take me. I am very curious.

If you want these cases then you can find them in the MobiLOVE Etsy store as usual. Just follow the links below.

I am still waiting for baby to come out and I am now 5 days over due. I am not very "happy" at the moment as I am struggling in this stupid heat wave and I can just about move now. I force myself to go for a walk around the block every night when the sun has gone down as this should help to get baby in position. I hope she'll arrive within the next couple of days, but who knows. Till then I will use my fan and my bed as much as possible lol.

Birdies and Water Melons...

I'm sorry for the lack of updates. I am moving at the speed of a Sloth at the moment. Baby is weighing me down and the unbearable heat is not making things better. I am two days over due now and I swear with every day that I go over time I just get heavier and heavier. I can't wait to deliver this baby, for so many reasons. I am longing so much to see her face for the first time, and I'm not going to lie, I can't wait to feel a million pounds lighter again, and to sleep on my tummy.

Anyway, enough of the complaints! I have got some new cases and prints done anyway. I would feel so bad if I didn't get anything done. So I have chosen the things that demands the least physical effort of me, which is phone case designs and patterns at the moment. So I did this little Bird and Water melon pattern yesterday. Very happy with them and I love the colours. Very summery! Also I've got cravings for Water Melon at the moment so this pattern really suited me hahahaha. Hope you like them! They're all available from the MobiLOVE shop, or you can click the links below and they will take you straight to the listings!
