Mel Stringer's work. I can't help it - she makes things that epitomize cute in the best possible non-cloying way. Recently, she's created some sweet plushies that make me wish I knew a bunch of little ones to give them to. I wonder if I'm too old? I know it may be a bit childish, but I like decorating with wide-eyed, hand-made creatures. Walter, the bear, is my very favorite of the group.
I'm hoping a sewing machine will be coming my way this holiday, so that I can make some of my own softies. I am currently enamored with narwhals, so I'd like to make one of those. I may sound like a dullard saying this, but I didn't know that narwhals were even real until about a month ago, and since then I've been obsessed (blushing, slightly embarrassed). Anyway, you ought to swing by Mel's shop; she has paper goodies and zines and the like. Very cool lady. Well, Happy Saturday!
