Cold and cute

I haven’t done anything crafty for the longest time. It’s so cold in my studio that my finger tips turn blue and my feet feel like big lumps of solid wood in my sneakers.
I am also suffering from a slight case of blog fatigue which I am sure hits all of us from time to time. It’s just too cold in here and of course Australian Idol has started so the couch is so much more inviting. Luckily I’ve been through this enough times now to know that these feelings of “oh, I wish I could just chuck it all in” will pass in a week or two.

Plush You! opened in Seattle a few days ago, and it’s great to see some photos up around the place of the show (not martha and mia’s). Here’s the list of artists whose work is included. If you happen to be in Seattle you can catch the show (and my cat and pear) at Schmancy.

On an exciting crafty-purchase note; I just bought one of Melissa’s tiny little cuties over at Etsy — (a fabulously dangerous place to visit if you have any money in your paypal account).

Isn’t she cute? And only 5cm high.

    She is so cute, I find it difficult to work on small things. We are nearing the end of our summer and always dread the long winter.

  9. Love your work and your blog…push past the fatigue! Here in NJ its sweltering and very humid, as far as I’m concerned they’re both bad–too cold, too humid. Can’t we figure out a way to make it just right all the time?
