It seems like everything transfered over smoothly. All my tags moved over as catagories so I'm guessing I'll have to fix those. So I've got some little tweaks here and there but no major problems.

I found these tiny Wilton cake pans on sale at Hobby Lobby a couple of weeks ago and new I had to make some pies. I'll be adding these to the rest of my daughters felt food she's getting for Christmas. I think these would make cute pin cushions.

Here's the press release for the upcoming show. I'll have four of my ice cream guys for sale.

December 3 - January 9 : gallery hanahou / 611 Broadway, Suite 730, NYC /
The popular NY holiday plush show is returning to gallery hanahou with oodles of handmade plushes for you and yours! Spread warm holiday cheer with adorable, strange, and funny unique plush toys made by more than 50 top plush artists from around the world.

The plushes will be even cuter and more affordable at this year's 3rd annual "Luv-able and Hug-able," with the special theme of "Medium and Mini!": toys that are either just the right size for hugging or small enough to fit in your pocket, swing from a keychain, or be worn on a pin.

Participating artists include returning favorites Christina Gordon of Jam Fancy, Anna Chambers, Robyn Fabsits, and Heidi Kenney, plus a bunch of hug-able new artists, among them APAK!, Elisabeth Doherty of Gourmet Amigurumi, and Sandra Monat of herzensart. As in previous years, gallery hanahou will also exhibit plushes by Japanese artists whose original works are rarely available in the US - this year, that also includes designer toy giants Devil Robots and noriya takeyama!

Plushes will be available for immediate take-home, so come early to the December 3rd opening to nab your favorites! Items in the show will also be available online via starting the week following the opening.

I finished my monster for Stuff This! last night.
This guy measures 16"h x 10"w. He's made of fleece and felt.

Stuff This! has asked artists to great one medium sized piece and one small plush ornament. So this sad ice cream guy is my ornament. He measures 5"h x 4"w and is made of fleece and felt.

Well my two month hiatus from working on my plush is over. It was a nice break and I had a blast working on all of our Halloween stuff. I also managed to get some holiday gift making out of the way. So I'm back and already have quite a few projects lined up. I got an email from Rivet Gallery on Monday to participate in their plush show Stuff This! It was nice being invited. I did this doodle the other day. I don't have a lot of time to work on him so I've got to get going. Haven't done any monsters in a really long time so that's what I'm doing. I've also got a commission piece that I'm working on that will be due before the end of December. So I'll be working on that too. Also Luv-able & Hug-able is coming up and I'll post what I've sent them.
Busy busy!
