This year, I was very excited to be accepted in Seattle's annual Plush You! show. Here's the work I created for the show:

Gold Leaf:





Red Drop:





Strawberry Mouse:





It seems every time I tell someone that I like to sew stuffed animals for fun, they always ask me what kinds of animals I make, and I just never know the answer...

Thank you, all! I don't make plushies as often as I'd like, but whenever I do, it's so much fun!

Thanks! I got the glitter noses from SCRAP, a great place for craft supplies if you're in the Portland area.

Ha ha! You can hate me as long as you realize it's not exactly effortless.  Grin But, hey, when you love your job, you never work a day in your life, right? Now if only I could get my art to be my only job...

I know it! One of the most frustrating things is people telling my that my work isn't worth what I think it's worth. Well, buddy, you just don't know how many hours I spent laboring over this, that, and the other. That's why I love Craftster so much. Everyone here really appreciates how much hard work goes into the things we all make.
