Though I like to keep this "blog" more about the Cotton Monsters than about little old me....My friend Rachel from the ever popular Red Prairie Press has "tagged" me, which in turn means I must share with you five random things about myself (that you may not already know). Here it goes:
1. I used to have dreadlocks...its true..they may still be in a bag around here somewhere
2. I can eat my weight in pasta (this may have something to do with being half italian)
3. I have two cats that I love like babies, dinah and fleur, (hence they are on the chub-chub side)
4. If an entire day of listening to NPR is getting me down, I flip on the boob tube to watch the best soap ever, General Hospital. Poor beautiful Emily Quarterman just died at the hands of a psycho, and so what if I stopped stuffing eyeballs for a moment to weep (just a little.) She'll probably be back as a ghost or a twin eventually.
5. I have a serious problem putting clothes inside of drawers...sorry jay

there you go, now you know....thanks to rachel.

Sold out...wahoo.

Yes, the new monsters were posted yesterday...and yes, they sold out.

As I wrote in the newsletter, I can't take any more pre-holiday orders right now, but get back to me in January if you'd like to commission something. Or check back for more updates.

And, as I said, I will put up whatever stock is left after my Dec. 9th Craft show...if there is check again later.

thanks to all...sorry to some.

Update Tomorrow

Here we go again,

The monster shop will be stocked with 40 brand new monsters *(biggest update yet!!) tomorrow afternoon, Saturday November 17. So, get them while you can.

Keep in mind, I will be participating in two upcoming craft shows in Baltimore, MD: Charm City Craft Mafia’s Holiday Heap Saturday Dec. 1st (just two weeks away) and Squidfire’s Holiday Art Mart Sunday Dec. 9th. Please visit their websites for more info. Both events are sure to be a good time!

I’m sorry I cannot take any more custom requests/orders until January…so please hold off on emailing till then! If I have any stock left after the Squidfire Show, they will go up in the store asap!
Also to note, postal shipping costs continue to rise due to fuel prices etc. so from now on, all BIG monsters, Bottomfeeders, and Sea Monsters will ship first class mail (their boxes are so big, the cost was becoming outrageous)…for now, little monsters, jellies, and pentapods will go Priority Mail. Thanks for understanding!

If you ever wanted to know even more about me...the weirdo behind the cotton monsters, you should click on over to the plush you blog where there's a pretty long interview with your's truly! It was posted Wednesday, October 31.

If you haven't checked it out already, you can spend HOURS browsing a world of all things "stuffed"...Even I had no idea there was so much out there. I highly recommend it, and I hope to be a part of the Plush You shows next year!
