Not Dead

Hello plushie lovers, if any of you still come to this blog! I know it's been ages, and I apologize. Since I started the process of getting a new job a couple months ago I haven't been making anything plushie-like.

We actually sold something a couple days ago (happy surprise!), so I figured I'd check in here. One of the pumpkin ornaments I made this fall was purchased and sent off to the sunny land of Florida. We're buried in snow here, so I'm kind of wishing I'd have shipped myself too.

I can't promise any more posts any time soon, but someday I'll get back into making plushies... I hope! In the meantime, there are still lots of cuddly critters in our shop if you're interested :)

Happy Halloween!

These are last year's pumpkins. We'll be carving new ones tomorrow!

Tonight we'll be heading up to Napoleon to host the 2008 Hallogivingmas party! It's our combination Halloween/Thanksgiving/Christmas party with our college buddies.I'm pretty darn excited, so I'd better get moving
and finish my preparations!

Happy Halloween!

Return of the Crammed Organisms!

I just got a box-o-plush in the mail! The plushies I'd sent to be in the Crammed Organisms show returned to me today, along with the official Crammed Organisms book! That's the part I was really excited about, because... well, look!

That's right, a full spread of Red Thread Plushies!!! And guess who get's a page all to himself (with a landmark in the background, no less)!

I'll be listing our celebrity friends in the shop over the next few days, so keep your eyes open for updates!

Additionally, here's the plushie I made yesterday, Sunny the cat!

She's pretty darn cute and very fluffy and cuddly :) She's currently listed in our shop.

Happy Thursday!

I've been trying harder to make things this week. I decided that I wouldn't allow myself to get on the Etsy forums until I make something that day. So far it has worked nicely!

Behold! Two new teeny plushies, Meep and Hugh. Cute, eh? I think I might start working on a full-sized plushie today.

Also, we are "featured" on a blog! Well, in truth the blogger asked for volunteers and I jumped at it... haha! Anyway, here's your link. Be sure to browse the rest of the blog too- it's fun to see how people's art has changed over a couple years.

Look! A new non-custom plushie! Gasp!

This is Scrappy the bear- he's a pretty sweet little guy. And he has a rockin' yellow scarf!

It seriously took me days to figure out what to do for his face... it was pretty ridiculous. What do you think? The scarf was a last minute idea and I really love it- it adds so much character!

I've been spending more time on Etsy lately due to being a jobless bum. I finally filled in our "Policies" page, which really isn't that exciting... haha! I had an issue today with PayPal because I was dumb and forgot to update Etsy when we changed our PayPal email address... ugh. Hopefully that works out ok! I've spent significant time on the forums lately, which is bad for my back (I get sore from sitting still so long!) but good for my business... sacrifices sacrifices ;)

I hope everyone is having a great week so far!
