Photo Fun!

So a friend of mine, Kathryn Hansen was talking to me about how she has this wonderful camera, but not always many things to photograph. So I told her about how I have all these plushies, but I'm not skilled at photographing them, and so we agreed it'd be great to have her take some photos of the plushies! I loved ALL of the photos she took, but unfortunately etsy only allows us to share 5 photos per plush, so I thought it'd be fun to make a blog post to share some of the other cute fun photos!!

One of the fun ideas they had was throwing them up in the air for action shots! Here was my favorite of those:

Apparently she got alittle carried away one day and bought 22 limes to take a bunch of photos of the lime with some friends!

And this one is just so cute, to see the two of them frolicking :D

This is my absolute favorite of the bunch!!!

Whats new to come!

I was so busy, in May I went to Rome for our 3 yr anniversary, it was really wonderful, and for photos of that trip go to my Deviantart scrapbook.
Shortly after I got back I was asked to do a long term sub position, which between that and my tutoring I had no time at all to sew :( But with the school year over, and my long term sub position complete, I finally have the time to sew again! I've been very busy with some things. First I felt like making more chubby stars. I love making those guys, and I decided to make them in a variety of sizes. Normally they are about the size of a small fist. But I've made some very tiny ones, and they're super cute. I'm going to make more, and perhaps even an albino one for kicks and giggles.
I threw in a pen in the picture to show the size. In addition to the stars I'm working on a donut. It's almost done and I think so far it's coming out really cute! I have it sitting on the table smiling at me whenever I walk by. The sprinkles are these cute beads I found at the craft store. It was actually pretty hard making a donut, and I ended up gluing the glaze part on because it looked really weird when I tried stitching it on. My big project is a happy toaster. I had started this project before Rome, but couldn't think of a good way to execute it before I went. Nocw I've been working on it and I got the hard parts figured out. The top slits were originally going to be actually holes. I wanted to originally be able to put toasty(the toast plush) in the toaster, but toasty is a bit bigger than actual toast and I started to realize it wouldn't fit. So instead I sewed some black fabric inside and cut out strips from the outside to still give a look like there are slits in the toaster.
Today I worked on adding a lever on the side. I used multiple layers of felt and put a pipe cleaner inside it to keep it's shape. Originally I was going to have the lever move up and down, but I messed up where I cut the hole, so to salvage the whole project I just permanently attached it. It would have been cool if it could move up and down, but I was being stupid XD I still have to add a bottom and stuff it. Also the face needs to be sewn on, but this is what I've got so far ^_^

New Car!

I know, unrelated to plushing, but very relevant to life! I just got a new car yesterday and I'm very excited about it ^______^ It's a 2012 Hyundai Elantra, and it's this really nice blue color. Sometimes how the sun htis it it looks blue and purple, it's really cool :D.

Finding time for plushing has been hard lately, although I've made a few things and finished some custom orders recently. I've come done with a cold and I have to start Physical therapy this week... So not sure how much I'll get done. I do get mid winter break soon ^_^ So I'll try to make some Cute Stuffies during that time :D

My Snow Week!

So It snowed almost the whole week and when it didn't snow, there was enough snow and ice that it was unsafe to drive. As a result I got the whole week off! Here are some awesome pics taken from the warmth and comfort of my apt:

And so, I was stuck inside for a whole work. I got lots of chores and cleaning done. I also got in a bunch of gaming(I think its safe to say I'm addicted to Dungeon Defenders XD), and of course there were plushies to make!!!

Here were some ideas I had...

The blue one is a rain drop, he was supposed to have arms, which looked awesome in drawing, but weird in reality, so I didn't add them. He kinda changed shape more than I thought when I stuffed him.

The heart is for V-day, I stuffed it with Polyfil and those poly pellets, the beanie things they have in beanie babies. It came out really nice, it made with more of a velvet like material and its so squishy and beanie!

The furry grey thing, is supposed to be a furry sluggy rock... He looks ghosty like in the picture but it won't really look like that when it's done. I havn't started that one yet, because the one I'm currently obsessed with is the purple one. I don't know what to call it yet. It looks sorta angelic, so my friend suggested the angel squid. It also looks like a crab whale thing when looked at from the bottom XD So I'm not sure yet, but I really like it! I think I'll have to make more in a variety of colors. What do you think?
