One of the things that's been keeping me busy these days is working on stuff for this upcoming exhibition that I am lucky enough to be a part of. I am honored to be included among these wonderful, talented softie-makers (and ridiculously excited, in fact, as some of my favorites are in there). If you are going to be in LA on September 25th, please do check it out. It promises to be an awesome show. I'll post more info about it as we get closer to the date.

And I will give you all a sneak peek at my finished pieces soon. Until then!

These are flying out the door to their new home, I'm happy to say.

how i learned to tie a tie

One more commission down! You know, I really love making these penguins. And I am so happy that the person these are for requested a tie for the boy penguin. How cute is that? It works. I like it. I hope she likes it, too. Hope you are all having a great week and that you have a fabulous weekend.

stepping away from the machine

Okay guys, Comcast is just killing me. It's either I get no internet or the connection is slower than dial-up. I don't have the patience for this. Seriously, a teeny post (like this one) is a HUGE pain in the butt right now with all the stalling and stuff. I am turning off the computer for a few days because the only other option is to lose my bananas over something that I have absolutely no control over. Here's hoping Comcast gets their guano together soon so I can check my email without banging my head against my desk. If you email me, I will get back to you as soon as I can, but please understand that it may take a couple of days. In the meanwhile, if you know me in real life and need to reach me, text me or call me on my cell. Or you know, send smoke signals or whatnot.... I'll be in my studio, merrily working on some commissions. I'm making progress on them, folks! I should have the first batch finished by the end of the week. Hopefully the stars will align or something and my computer and the Airport and the mofo internet will be working together in harmony just in time for me to post the finished pieces for their recipients. See you all soon!

Hey there Nibs!
Hey there, everybody!
So are you excited about your move over to bigcartel?
Yes, thanks! You know what they say: change is good. I'm embracing it, thanks.
Anything you'd like to say to the good people reading this here blog?
Just that I hope you're all having a great summer and that I am so grateful that it's not a hot and humid one. It's so ridiculously pretty outside right now. I'm having a kick-ass time, and I hope you are too.
Thanks, Nibs! You're a sweetheart!

Carly - MovingOnUp

Hey folks! Happy Monday! We’ve been experiencing some technical difficulties over here; our internet service has been out for a few days and then working extremely spotty over the last day or so. I apologize if I haven’t been able to get back to you or respond to your emails. I will respond as soon as I can. Here’s hoping the not-so-great luck we’ve been having lately passes and fast!

In the meanwhile, I am in the process of moving etsy listings that are about to expire over to my new shop. Carly has now joined Pinky and Ben over at bigcartel. To see a larger version of the photo below, please click on the image itself:
