I hope everyone is having a wonderful July. Mine has been pretty unproductive thus far, as Stella's sitter has been on vacation - so though I've gotten quality kiddo time, my work and projects have been on hold.

STUFFED Summer 2011
I am so excited, because once again, Bluestar Fuzzies have been included! Here are pics of my two spreads:

As you may remember from this post, I created some circus-themed plush for this submission. I had never made people before, so that was bit of a challenge, but I'm really happy with how they turned out. And there are props - a whip for the lion tamer and a trapeze for the trapeze artist to help complete their stories. Fun!

Once again, the talent in this issue is unbelievable! I am so humbled by all of the other artists' work in the issue. Some other featured Plush Teamers are:

There is also an amazing article about a Plush Team challenge in which they collaborated to make some cool Frankenplush creatures. You must check it out!

So thanks again, Stampington & Company, for featuring my Bluestar Fuzzies. It is such an honor.
