Phew....what a week!

Man, this week really wore me out! I finally finished my article for Stuffed magazine, I bought a brand new car(my old one wasn't going to last much longer without me putting some major cash dollars into it...i now drive the batmobile ^_^), there was a woot off going on on I was lucky enough to FINALLY get a bag of crap!), my 8-5 job has been busy, etc etc. But I thankfully was able to get a little me-time in and got my hair colored and got my crochet on. I got a bunch of orders completed and even started on some new pieces that I hope to get into the Mortal Plush show at Art Whino gallery in MD. Check out some of Mr. Toastee's emotions:

And on another note, since I was good in the grocery store, my husband let me get a toy out of the machine. Look at the one I got. It is supposed to be pooh dressed up as a grasshopper but I can't help but think that it looks like he is being eaten by one:

Oh, and FYI - the Mr. Toastee zip-pouches should be hitting my etsy store sometime in April ^_^

I am now off to work on some custom orders for Nannerpuss ^_^

I Can Has Hamburger....Cupcakes

Not only can I crochet, but I can also cook! I made these tonight for my coworkers...this is totally going to beat out whatever Laura decides to bring in tomorrow! They are really super easy to make! All you need is:
Yellow Cupcakes
Chocolate Cupcakes
Green Food coloring
shreaded Coconut
Orange Fruit by the foot
Sesame seeds

The thing that took the longest was making all the yellow and chocolate cupcakes! I posted step by step pictures of me making them on flickr. nom nom nom!

Okay, as usual I've been a bit of a slacker on my posts for a bit here. I have been busy though - I've been working on my new basement studio, designing pieces for a few shows this year, keeping up with orders, etc. Oh, and guess what! I'm going to be in the next issue of Stuffed! What is Stuffed you ask? It's only the most awesome magazine chock full of amazing plush artists! Run on over to your favorite book store and grab a copy - you won't be disappointed! The issue I'm in will be out later this year. Don't worry, I'll let you know when it is available ^_^

I've also busted out my sewing machine and tried a few new things with it, including a Mr. Toastee zip pouch (as pictured above). These will soon be available in my etsy shop ^_^
