Free Time Anyone?

I've been a bit lax on the old blog, as I an currently doing a daily countdown to Renegade Chicago on the Plush team blog, highlighing all of the team members who will be participating in the event. The Plush team will be at booth 70 if you are going to be in the area!!

That being said, I have also been quite busy on some special projects, custom orders and entries for the 90th annual Ephrata Fair, as well as trying to come up with some new designs...there just isn't enough hours in a day! I am very happy though, as my plushies for Renegade made it, and I also completed my pieces for Plush You and those arrived safely today in Seattle! I'm going to keep a little suspense as far as what I sent in for Plush You(although you can see one on them on my photostream in flickr)....partly because I totally forgot to take a pic of one of the pieces...grrrrr

I did come up with a couple new mini keychains for halloween though - a mini candy corn as well as Mr. Spookee - available now in my etsy shop:

Off to Chicago we go!

Woohoo! I finally got all my little guys done for Renegade Chicago!! It was so hard to decide what to make so I decided to go with some of my favorites...I may make a couple last minute substitutions, as I realize my peas are conspicuously absent from the gang. If you are going to be in the Chicago area Sept 13 and 14th, make sure you stop by Renegade Chicago and find the fabulous Plush Team is going to be the most huggable booth there!!! I can't wait to see pics of everyone's plushies all together there! I really wish I could go!

Itteh Bitteh Kittehs

I just completed a custom order for skybluebunny of 2 itteh bitteh kittehs made to look just like her little guy. She made me a rocking pair of sno cone earrings, an old school gameboy charm, and a rainbow lollipop charm our of polymer clay in return. I recommend you check out her etsy shop - her work is AMAZING!!!

Cupcakes are cool!

I have been hard at work, crocheting like a madwoman to get ready for Renegade Chicago and Plush You 2008, plus keeping up with orders and working on a couple of cool custom projects, but I found time to stop over to Jen's Pottery Den and paint some uber fun cupcakes. I did one in a poker theme because I LOVE playing Texas Hold'em, and one in Yummy Pancake colors. These guys won't go stale if you leave them sitting out ^_^
