New plush

Well - after almost 2 months off from sewing - I have a few new friends finished.
I made a new "Mrs. Stevenson" - one maybe not quite as crazy looking as the original.
I started working on a new "mini" series , so far there are 2 of these little blue monsters.
They have little purple pom pom tails.

All of which are for sale, Mrs. Stevenson is $40 and the little blue monsters are only $15 each!

because zombies no longer need sustanance...

Well - this past Sunday was a rainy, messy day for the 4th annual Zombie Kickball!
This year's game was a benefit for the Good Shepard Food Bank here in Maine. Many
people made donations of non-perishable foods and money. There was also a raffle, for which
I donated "Frontsal", one of my Tenderfoot Creations!

Christmas presents, what?

Yes, the holidays will be here before you know it.
I am now accepting custom orders.
You can place an order in two ways:
1. If you would like an order shipped to you - please visit my etsy site and send me a convo
(you will have to set up an account - real easy)
2. If you live nearby and would like to pick up an order in person (to save on shipping), go to the "About Me" section and click on "view my complete profile" From there you will find "contact", click on "email" and drop me a note

What to include when placing an order:
Your name, your email address, your phone number (optional), brief explanation of the plush you have in mind (you can use my portfolio as a reference), the size, the colors, a price cap if you have one
