Giveaway Saturday! :)




My name is Mariska. I'm a designer from the Netherlands that creates cute quirky characters called Fluffels.

I've started Fluffels two years ago, a month after I got my first sewing machine. I bought it to make pillows and maybe clothes, but ended up making loads of plushes instead:)



I also make soft toy kits and patterns for people that want to create their own plush. Those are called DIY fluffies.

I graduated from the Utrecht school of Arts in the Netherlands. After my graduation I worked in the videogame industry as a 3d modeller for a few years, but decided to go full time with Fluffels last year. I got pregnant after one month and now I'm combining motherhood with Fluffels.

A new addition to Fluffels are jewelry designs that I started creating a few months ago. They are acrylic laser cut pendants. I think Acrylic is a perfect material for pendant because it is so strong, but still very light in weight.

I'm giving away one Toy Grabber Bear necklace to a Paper*Cakes finds reader!



to win:

Visit Mariska's store and tell me one thing you liked best :) You can gain additional entries by tweeting, blogging, facebooking, etc as long as you post an additional comment each time. Entries are unlimited. Good luck! Will be drawn for Monday morning!

xoxo

I love the Fluffel Zumba the Monster best because his expression matches how I feel sometimes - and I don't think I have ever seen a combo of insanity/RAWR!/smashy! captured so perfectly on an inanimate object before!

Oh, thank you so much for the giveaway!
My favorite items at Mariska's etsy store are the "Fluffel buttons" and the "Toy Grabber Necklaces" (bear and kitty).

Thanks again and congrats for the beatiful designs!

My favorite is the Toy Grabber Bear Necklace. My reaction to seeing the necklace when it loaded on the screen nearly gave my husband a heart attack from the sudden "OH MY GOODNESS THAT IS THE BEST NECKLACE EVER!!!"

Cori said...

My fav was Bruno the dog. He reminds me of the cartoon bulldog from tom and jerry. Very cute I might just have to get one of the fluffel patterns. The dragon is just awesome!

Strangely enough, I had the same reaction as Tracey (see above) when I saw the necklace you were giving away. It looks like a design NOTCOT founder Jean Au would be interested in.
