For January’s club boxes I was thinking about “time”, about changing to a new year, father time, and maybe even the phrase “father Timex” crossed my mind. I decided to make plush watches that could really snap around a wrist, or even be displayed on one of those plastic watch displays. Each box came with some candy, and a paper cuckoo clock to put together (in keeping with the whole time theme) It was so cute to see all the photos popping up on instagram with kids & adults sporting their plush watch friends.
I just finished wrapping all the February POMs in tissue paper and can’t wait to see what people think. The hardest part about the club for me is keeping everything a secret!
I was really excited about December’s Plush Of The Month Club! I wanted to create something seasonal but also something for everyone regardless of what they may celebrate during the month of December. I thought about my plush candles which I have only ever briefly made in the past, first for a gallery show, and then a few to sell. I thought they were perfect because December marks the longest night (Winter Solstice) and what better to a candle then to cheer up those long winter nights, even in plush form.
I did get it in my head that I wanted to include candy & stickers inside these vintage style stockings.
I’ll share January’s POM boxes with you in a few weeks once all the overseas boxes have been delivered.
Just a quick rewind to the boxes of Plush Of The Month Club that shipped out November 1st…..turkey-free plush turkey legs and little bags filled with candy. As you can see I didn’t get very good photos in November, but I have way better ones to share of December’s box!
