Ok, so who's watching Lost tonight?

I am.

And while watching it...

I'll be working on this:

Just to give a little peek.

I love pink and yellow together.

Happy Sunday!

As promised...

This little guy is up in the shop!

And sneak peek:

I love him.

Coming soon folks.

Another Weekend for Work

I finished a couple more things that may or may not end up in the shop tomorrow. I want to work on some photos too.... We shall see.
I'm really happy with the new Needling I made today though. Think, "mushroom."
He's a little different and pretty cool looking.
Also an owly keyring. (Oo Ah)

So goodnight for now, dearies.

I'll leave you with a photo of the completed plushteam banner that I spoke about months ago. (Remember? I did the little pink "T" in Street.)

Put up a couple new pins in the shop this afternoon.

In related news: it's snowing.

New Ideas

I've put a new pillow up in the shop that I'm extra proud of.

I'm also in the process of making some other little new things for the shop that are a little different.
So keep an eye out.
I'm excited about being able to incorporate, "The Needlings," into the pillows and pins and have
been thinking about more ways of doing this that allows me to make lots of different little things.
It's fun.

Cinnamon Hearts

So I've never been a big celebrator of Valentine's Day but I have always loved the toys and gummi hearts that start showing up in the stores around this time.
At work for instance, all the Christmas stuff is being cleared out and all of the pinks and reds and chocolately are being put by the front door.
So this pink and lovey dovey holiday also allows me to embrace my tendency to make the pinkest and cutest things I possible can. I struggle with the compulsion to make cuuute but thank to the Plush Team Valentine's Challenge I was fully able to make an adorable lovey teddy bear.
It's not in the shop yet...
but here's a taste.

Tastes like cinnamon.

Working Away

I just put a new little owl up in the shop.
They haven't been staying there long (which is awesome).
And this little guys is soon to come:

Hopefully everyone's week is feeling as productive yet still as peaceful as mine is seeming to go so far.

Etsy Love

I was thinking today about how much time I have spent on Etsy for the past few years.
Now that I sell my plushies on etsy, of course, I've spent significantly more time clicking around and still buying lovely things from lovely people.
I'm happy to be a part of it and really want to wiggle my way in there as much as possible.
I even wrote an article for the Etsy online journal, The Storque, where I wrote up a little summary of one of the great critique workshops EtsyLabs conducts.
So I suppose I am now a published writer and a small business owner all thanks to this website with the funny name.

A day off for work

I was woken up this morning at 6am by the fire alarm.
Don't worry, nothing was on fire. In fact, my house was freezing.
But off it went anyway.
So I just decided to stay up and start making a pillow. I intended it for the shop but I decided to keep it!
Here it is in the middle of sewing.
Made from some pretty little fabric swatch I had and some deconstructed brown pinstripe pants I decided to destroy.

It was a nice day.
