Recently, I’ve been lucky enough to be featured on some fantastic websites and blogs.  This might look like I’m tooting my own horn (and I might be, a little) but I want to thank them all for choosing to showcase my work and my home.  A few days ago, a magazine called Artful Blogging came in the mail and I had never heard of the magazine much less subscribed to it, but when I open it up there was a picture of my plush diggers!  Next to some amazing artist work no less–Heidi Kenney and Ann Wood, two women I greatly admire.  This picture is in an article about the website whipup.  A great website and one I’m happy to be associated with. The Plush You! exhibit at Schmancy (a store in Seattle) was what started my toy making desire in the first place, so I was super excited to see some of my toys on their blog.  And not only did Cookie magazine highlight my home in their blog, nesting (thanks joanna) but today my kids’ room is pictured on the Apartment therapy blog Ohdeeoh! Then last night after putting the kids to bed I looked on Etsy and there were my felt rocks on the front page. I have thoroughly exhausted my fifteen minutes of fame and will probably be totally uncool tomorrow, oh well.  Thank you to everyone, you made my week.

This is my 99th post, so tomorrow will be my 100th. duh. And I’ll be hosting a little giveaway!  So check back tomorrow.

    Congrats on the well deserved attention. Isn’t it wonderful that positive things can come in multiples too? (Rather than the universe chucking boulders from the skies variety?)

    well I am not surprised, your plushies are very unique!


    I am off to see your kids rooms.

    wow, the room looks fantastic and I love how you answered the questions, so unassuming and honest. “getting stuff on the cheap’ is something I admire. anyone can put a look together with heaps of space and budget, but the best style is birthed within constraints and limitations.
    SO loveing it!

    anyway, madison eh? here I am in new zealand and I find a blog of someone living in some of my old hideouts. MN, madison, etc. small world!

    Yay, good for you. I love your felt rocks. I keep meaning to let the kids have a go with some rovings just to see what they come up with.
