The Plush Team Annual Has Arrived!!!

I never knew you could STUFF this much awesomeness in one book!

The PlushTeam, of which I am proud to be a member of, is ecstatic to present to you our first ever Team Annual, containing 120 pages of plushy goodness!

What is in store for you upon opening this marvelous book:

*An opening by our team founder, Megan Green, describing how our team came to be.

*An insightful, informative, and all-around fascinating account of the history of plush craft by our team co-founder Christina Ward.

*42 2-page, full color features of our PlushTeam members(including me!!). Each includes photos of the artist's work, and text written by the artist explaining motivation, process, and inspiration.

*A timeline of PlushTeam activities through over the years.

*Profile pages providing a comprehensive list of PlushTeam artists, including artist headshots and etsy shop addresses. We are a good looking bunch if I do say so myself!

*Photos of PT Stitchy, the team mascot, scattered throughout the book in his various incarnations as interpreted by our team members.

The book is full color, professionally printed, and soft cover. It measures 6.75"x6.75" (or 17 centimeters square). This is volume 1 of our Team Annual, featuring the artists from 2009. Our intent is to make this a yearly publication, updating it each year with our newest members and their incredible work.

Get one for yourself in the Plush Team's Etsy Store!'s good enough to eat!

Give me back that crochet o fish! Give me that fish!

Okay, so my brother and I really get a kick of that stupid song in the McDonalds filet o fish commercial, and my mom totally hates it. Yes, I am a dork. But last night I was inspired to create a crochet version....lasts longer than the real one.
I really wish i could find something I could ecord the song on and then put inside the plush so that it plays everytime you squeeze it ^_^

Come to the dark side....we have filet o fish!

Schmancy Olympic Challenge - The Meme-athalon!

I am finally done! Here is my official entry for the Schmancy Olympic Challenge. My category was made up sport, so I created some plush centered around the most awesome olympic event ever....the Meme-athalon! Consisting of events such as 1500m All your base rase, The Rick barrel roll, 50m Leeroy Jenkins dash, Cheezeburger competitive eating, I like turtles hurl, and star wars kid fencing, the meme-athalon is sure to delight one and all! It is run both at the summer and winter olympics, and the events are as dynamic as memes!

Pictured here are the winners of this year's meme-athalon - in first, winning the gold medal for the 10th time in a row, CATS! He really cleans house in the 1500m All Your Base Race. He's won that event ever since it became a part of the Meme-athalon! In second, winning the silver medal is I like turtles Toastee, and in third, winning the bronze, is Happy Cat...looks like he ran out of happy ^_^

I had a lot of fun with this challenge, and am very happy with how my pieces turned out! I can't wait to see all the other entries....this contest is going to be epic!
