This is where all the My Paper Crane order packing goes on. As you can see it is tidy right now, but trust me…it can sometimes be covered with the trash strips from priority mail boxes, scrap paper from printed mailing lists, and bits of tape.
I spent a big chunk of today cleaning my art space. If I let it get out of hand I don’t even feel like making anything. Once the whole room is clean and neat it makes me want to jump back in there and get it messy all over again!

Blue Cake

Please excuse the bad photos…Its rainy and pretty dark outside so its hard to get a good shot. This big blue cake (once adorned with faces of course) will be heading to the show “Feast Your Eyes” in Lansing MI. If your in the area the website is (but it doesn’t look like it has been updated recently) The show opens Friday Jan. 27th and looks like it should be really cool. All artwork with various food themes. (SCENE) metrospace is located on the corner of Abbott and Albert.

Now That’s Schmancy!

The picture above was taken by the talented Karen of Kra-o-la She took some great photos of last years show! If you look closely you can see my super tall ice cream cone, burnt toast and cupcake on the top of the shelf…

Plush You II! Now at Fancy, Schmancy and Pants in Seattle.

The trilogy of awesome, Fancy, Schmancy and Pants have decided to join forces to make Plush You II! bigger and better. We would like to invite you to participate in the event of the year.

Last August, Schmancy had its’ first Plush You event in Seattle, WA. We showcased various plush creations from fifty artists from all over the world. So much so that we decided to make it an annual event. Sally Brock, of Fancy and Pants, decided to get in on the action to make it a bigger and better event.

This year the event will be held on October 6th 2006.

Due to the overwhelming response to the show we have had to change the application process a bit to accommodate all those interested.

To join in the festivities contact curator, Kristen Rask, at with your name, website info (if any), location and a few images of the kinds of work you do. 150 artists will be selected and then contacted with further information about the show. Each artist will be allowed to submit three pieces for the show.

All submissions will need to be in by Feb 15th 2006.

This is a great way for you to get your name and work out to the public!

We Love You!
