First peek at Plush You!

Just stopped in to get a sneak peek at the lovely and amazing work (and to get first dibs on the goodness, naturally). Was super psyched to find my OoAKies sharing a shelf with Cutesy but Not Cutesy's horned furry lovelies. I bought a few pieces (to be revealed later) and still haven't seen the other shops hosting work! I'm sure more shopping will happen. Oh yes.

These three OoAKies are making their debut at Schmancy this evening. If you're in Seattle, be sure to come out for the party and get your hands on some AMAZING plush from all over the world (and Baltimore).

wink wink.

I've got Balance!

My first trip to the grocery store (to get, primarily, allergy medicine) has proved fruitful. What fruit, you ask? Well, Cranberry and Grapefruit, of course! I only bought two. For now.

Doesn't matter which Coast I'm on; I always end up crafting with a dog head on my lap.

waiting in the airport...



i'm in atlanta (which any geography buff will recognize as the most logical halfway point between baltimore & seattle...) waiting for my next flight to leave. i have 3 hours. i wonder what i was thinking when i booked these tickets... surely there was a later flight leaving baltimore for atlanta... or one that bypassed the southeast altogether.

so far i've discovered some lovely things: wireless ON the plane now, on airtran. I didn't use it, but i liked knowing it was there. and more important, they now serve vitamin water as a complimentary beverage option. two flavors too! essential (the orange one) and revive (the fruit punch one... or "purple" as we call it). i went with orange.

my excitement over the vitamin water reminded me of another AWESOME thing i totally forgot about the last time i was in seattle--- they still sell Balance there! (that's the cran-grapefruit vitamin water, for those of you who joined the vitamin water craze a little late in the game.... now, for those of you who have been loving it from the beginning: remember FRUIT water? it was like vitamin water, but clear and not sweet and i was obsessed with it). Anyway, point being, i will be filling my suitcase with Balance for my return trip. Im bringing that sh-stuff back to baltimore or SURE.

so, i'm biding my time before take off. listening to Grizzly Bear (which reminds me of my brother, who i'll be seeing in a matter of hours) and doubling down on tylenol (which i thought i hadn't packed, but totally had). i can't wait to get to Seattle!

in the meantime, i will alternate between stitching up some new slim-line knitimal wallets & playing games on my phone. some work, some play, makes danamarie a happier traveller.

First hurdle of the trip:

... Resist urge to steal this sign from the bathroom. I passed.

Plush You: Progress



Mason helps me pack for Seattle...

... Or tries to protest my leaving by sabotaging my luggage. Either/or.

Well, despite his efforts, I AM going to Seattle tomorrow. Plush You opens Friday. I'll report back, of course.

Until then though, please help us in our fundraising efforts, by shopping greenstarstudio! This whole month, 5% of all my etsy sales will go directly to the Cancer Research Institute.

Ok, I'm headed to sleep. I will be in airports or in the air for over 12 hours tomorrow. Yuck.

Till then...

Xoxo, danamarie

She's celebrating & raising awareness with her bright pink boobie dots and breast cancer ribbon. Makes a great totem for any woman, whether she'd going through chemo, celebrating remission or embracing themselves just as they are--- this little plush sculpture can be a wonderful reminder of their strength & the love that surrounds them.
