i've been having fun.

new free-range studio monster

this guy, he's got a lot to say

quiet and rabbit-like

centerpiece / sitting

jewelry holder / hanging

i've started calling this guy max, you can imagine why

he's my favorite. he's got little spots and perfect little ears. i love him.

a new treehouse

there will be a few more treehouses coming, i'm pretty fond of this one

little things that add hours to the work but really make me happy

speaking of little details, the backs of all the new mini-wall monsters

are finished with awesome recycled Waverly upholstery fabric.

all of this stuff is going to be in
The Shop

If i ever get home from working the desk job - it's going to be a long day.

...speaking of which. i chatted with my boss on wednesday, and we nailed down what my actual date of leaving will be. my last day, for real official, of working for someone other than myself, is January 22, 2010. Seeing that written on the calendar, it's amazing. anyone who's been reading my blabber since 2005 knows how frustrated i've been about art/deskjob/life. and to be honest, leaving wqa is going to be hard for me. but - to be free and support myself off of my art, finally? that's everything.

HEY! Did you know that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month?

So, with about 10 days of October left, I just got done listing my pieces for Plush Team's Breast Cancer Awareness Fundraiser.

These little guys are available for sale in the Plush Team Etsy Shop (click).

80% of the proceeds from these little pink birdies, as well as the other work by my fellow plush-teamers, goes to the Susan G. Komen Institute, an international fund dedicated to raising money for Breast Cancer Cure research.

hello internets

i try not to sale-blog you or re-blog you, but sometimes it's necessary for me to yell certain things into the world, so thanks for bearing with me.

today's bit of talk is this:

like most people, every January i make a little list of goals for the upcoming year
so in january of 2009 i made my little list
one of the things at the tippy tap top of this list was:
"be accepted to and exhibit in Plush You at the schmancy gallery in seattle"
this was a little something i had always on the back burner of my brain, ever since i started making those first amigurumi back in 2007
So, being one of the participants of Plush You '09, at Schmancy, is pretty freaking fantastic for me.

(from Schmancy, here )

(my guys are totally chillin' with some sweet LL&O friends)

The show is still open, and if you're in the Schmancy area, you should stop by and see it and i will live vicariously though you! I would have gone but i was in an airplane at the time of the opening, exhausted and covered in mekong-river-sewer-water.

I'm really thrilled to be showing there, and for the show I really tried to make work that was on par with my excitement. These are the pieces on display, you may recall:

i also sent the fresh strawberry to keep them company

These are now available from Schmancy online, if you click HERE. I'm not sure if the octopus demon is still available, but both that piece and the woodnymph demon are being offered at a fat discount*, to celebrate this milestone in my strange plush career.

Thank you internets, that's all. <3

*price shown on page is discounted price.

Woodland Catcow

Forgive me, my camera lens is still foggy with the silt of the Mekong River

I have got to get that camera cleaned.
And then get that G11.
look it's beautiful
(I'm currently sporting a G9)

i worked pretty much right up to the very last second before the taxi came to get me last month, and so some of the stuff i was working on went flying out the door without taking great photos.. but oh well. i snapped a few shots of this before mailing it off

custom order - three little birds

(for ella's first birthday)
