Happy New Year Everyone!

Well... January is my month to regroup after the past few months of holiday madness. I am working on restocking my supplies, printing more labels, cleaning up my work space and focusing my plans for 2010.

There were a couple of new animal plushie designs that came about through holiday orders,
such as a monkey and a lobster. Tell me what you think.

I also made a couple of frogs. (I had made one last Christmas for a custom order.)

Before Christmas, I was working on some trees made from recycled materials and filled with Maine balsam fir. Unfortunately, I ran out of time to finish them for the holidays. Some day soon I will make trunks for them and put them up on etsy.
