Hiatus over, i promise

It's been awhile right? hahaha..ahh, sigh. sorry

Well, I explained a lot of what's been going on here, but in short:

Jellybean got older, things got a bit complicated & worrisome, now she's older and we're back on track...she's such a smartypants gumdrop.

We moved [again].

We added a new jellybean to our family.

yeah, it's kind of been a busy, hectic year. such is life.

but i'm back now, and will be providing random acts of plushness very soon. especially since I will be a part of Schmancy's PLUSH YOU 2012!! huzzah! but more on that later, parenthood beckons.

 later gators.

Salty Not Sweet Handmade Boutique Reopening & The Great Reveal!

So what have I been doing the first half of 2011, you may ask? I was busy...being awesome. Besides watching the wee one become a real kid (seriously, when did she get so big??) and creating smaller plushes (bunnipus'), I was busy making a huge project for....
So last Saturday, May 21st, the Salty ladies re-opened their wonderful shop in Ohio City (2074 W. 25th) with a grand opening par-tay! The hubs & I went to show our support....and to see the window art installation plush they so kindly displayed for their big event!

here's me feeling dorky standing in front of it

and again, me feeling dorky, standing behind it...with a celebratory Yuengling.
stay classy.

Everything looked so great in the shop! There were all sort of great handmade goods, new vintage pieces, products showing Ohio some love, cute jewelry, super yummy smelling Terre Verde Soap & Candle Co. products, letterpress/handmade (and hilarious) cards...the list goes on!

We stayed long enough for me to snag a pair of button earrings & record hair clips, though I had my eye on so much more. Alas, we had a babysitter to relieve & a bambina to watch over. I plan on going back really, really soon.

It's great to see that area of town getting a facelift & much needed economic boost. I'm also partial to that area since we lived in Ohio City for a short period of time right after our big move from Philly (where I shortly discovered a month later I was expecting...but that's a story for another time & another blog.)

If you live in the Cleveland area, I suggest you get your tushes down to see the shop. It's only a block away from the historic West Side Market and right next door to the equally cool Room Service shop.

Oh, and after the plushes have run their course in the windows, they will be available for sale through the shop. Just want to put that out there :)

Ok so I may be a little late, but if it helps i've been posting a my mind. It just never quite makes it onto the interwebs. Teehee. anyways, I've been crazy busy, not only with the wee queen jellybean, but with a big crazyawesome project. so stay tuned.

For now, here are my bunnypus'. Handsewn in the first 2 weeks of the year. My resolution this year was to knock out 2 creations in the first month, and the rest of the year, use a vision board for short and long term goals. Done and Done.

More good stuff to come! xoxo

Plush You Seattle 10.08.10

Is it okay if I get mushy? well, okay, allow me a little mush. I feel really, really fortunate to not only have been accepted once, but twice to Plush You in Seattle. *sniffle*, sigh. My bambina was still crawling about, still formulating her plan to take over the world. And now? well, let's just say that the old adage of children being like the sea & never turning your back on either, still rings true. Okay, so I heard it from Kindergarten Cop, it's no less true.

If you are in the Seattle area, the Plush You! Seattle show opens tonight, October 8th, with a sure to be funtimes opening party at Schmancy (1938 2nd Avenue) from 5pm to 9pm. The show will run for a month, until November 11th. Amazing plushies from over 100 artists from around the world will be on display at Fancy, Schmancy, & Nancy. Last year, my plush showed at Bluebottle Gallery, and this year, my sweet treats will be showing at Nancy, Schmancy's sister store. If you cannot make it, never fear, you can at least view my submissions HERE, on my flickr set. Though if you do find yourself there, PICTURES, Please!! I'll be your best friend, or at least I'll be that friend who doesn't post weird passive aggressive messages in her Facebook status & doesn't clog up your timeline with items about Farmville.

I wish I could be there in person, but with a wee person with a runny nose & a move on the horizon, it was a no go. Maybe one day I'll have ficticious free time & someone else's bank account to descend on Seattle & buy everything in Schmancy...and Big Fun. One can dream :)
