I’ve been busy, busy, busy for the last couple of weeks but I thought I should stop what I was doing and wish everyone a happy holiday season. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all.
UPDATE: Guitars have been moved to my shop. You know you want one. Click here.

I know I’ve mentioned before that I am a member of the Etsy Plush Street Team or as we’re also known as, the Plush Team. I made this mermaid cat critter for an upcoming Plush Team challenge called Plush Team Beach Party. I’ll fill you in on the details later. For right now, let’s just admire this hybrid creature. Click on the photo to be whisked to the Plush Team Etsy Shop where you can see more pictures of the Mer-Cat. Meow!
Easter is just around the corner. I still have a crocheted bunny available in my shop and just added a pair of pink bunnies to the Plush Team shop. Wouldn’t one of these cuties look fabulous in a basket or centerpiece for the upcoming holiday? Click on the picture to see more and to pick one up for your Easter festivities. Hop to it!
We had a Plush Team swap and my swapee’s favorite animal is a hammerhead shark. So I crocheted her one. Read all about it here. Enjoy.
Almost a year ago, (has it really been that long?) The Plush Team, had a show of our work at the Hot Pop Gallery in Milwaukee, WI. The show was candy themed and I made a Peppermint Pup and a Candy Cane Cat. I was going to keep them in my collection but I got in the holiday mood and put them in my Etsy shop in hopes that they make someone happy on Christmas morning. Click on the picture and you’ll be taken there to see more pictures and have the opportunity to be the one that brings home the striped smiles this holiday.
Wavy Wade is in NYC for the big celebrations of 11/11/11 at the Corduroy Appreciation Club festivities. But you can purchase him from the Plush Team Etsy shop if you want to participate in the celebrations. There are other corduroy creations available there also, but hurry up, they’re going fast after being mentioned on the Rachel Maddow Show last night. Rachel herself bought a Plush Team piece. Don’t you want to be like Rachel?
All Hail the Wale!!!
I swear the month of October slipped right by me and here we are in November. And do you know what occurs in November this year? Why, the date that most resembles corduroy, 11/11/11. And why is that important, you ask? Because I am a lucky contributor to the Corduroy Appreciation Club festivities occurring on that date.
Let me quote from the PlushTeam blog: “The date that most closely resembles corduroy, 11|11|11 has come upon us, and to commemorate this momentous date the Plush Team has teamed up with the Corduroy Appreciation Club. A collection of 11 corduroy-inspired plush created by 11 members of the Plush Team has resulted. These pieces will be displayed at the grand meeting celebrating all things corduroy at the Desmond Tutu Center in Manhattan on this most auspicious date. These pieces will become available to the public to celebrate this every man’s fabric in their own private collections on November 12th, 2011 after the meeting has commenced. They will be listed in PlushTeam’s etsy shop: www.plushteam.etsy.com.
Also, keep checking the the PlushTeam blog daily to see the latest corduroy creation.
About the Club:
The Corduroy Appreciation Club is a social club which wishes to cultivate good fellowship by the advancement of Corduroy awareness, understanding, celebration and commemoration of the fabric and all related items. Club events are held on dates which resemble Corduroy. Explore the club and all its wonders further at

And what is my contribution? (more…)
You may know that I am a long time member of the Etsy Plush Street Team. The members of our team are all so very, very talented. In fact, one of our members is featured in a new crochet book by Kristen Rask of Schmancy and Plush You fame entitled Yummy Crochet. Our Miss Yummy Pancake herself is all over the pages of this new book and, to top it off, her donut pattern was chosen by the publisher to be one of the 2 patterns the book comes with the supplies to make. If that’s not enough excitement, Kristen is giving away a copy of the book right here:
Tell her a good friend of Denise sent you.
A few weeks ago I posted a photo of a work in progress. I have finally finished my creation. Allow me to introduce you to Miss Kitty, the former Las Vegas showgirl now reduced to being a snake handling sideshow act for a two bit traveling circus. She is my entry for the Plush Team May/June 2011 challenge: Under the Bigtop: A Circus of Misfits. Clicking on the pictures will take you to my Etsy shop where you can see additional pictures and learn more about Miss Kitty.

Category A) Circus Animal Tricks (ie: lions, tigers, and bears OH MY!)
