Help SimplyHibiscus! New plush! I get mail! Etc!

I've got lots to talk to you about!

First things first: pleaseeee help me assist a fellow plush maker on Etsy! SimplyHibiscus a.k.a. Little Felt Hearts a.k.a. Thea makes super cute little creatures that I've loved for a while now, but due to some personal issues (see her blog HERE to learn more), she has lost ALL of her supplies and ALL of her already-made plushies, and she hasn't been able to make anything new for four months.


Now, I've definitely had times where I haven't made much, but I can't imagine being absolutely unable to be creative and make things. Please, if you have any extra fabric, supplies, or have a few dollars you could send her way, do it! She hasn't set up any kind of PayPal or anything as of writing this, but if you can help in any way, leave a comment on her blog, her Facebook fan page, send her a convo on Etsy - anything to let her know that you're willing to help. I'm going to get together a care package of my own shortly here, so if you prefer to donate anonymously, you can also send something to her through me (email me at TheEmoSeal[at]gmail.com and we can set something up!). I know I don't have the biggest influence, but if you could spread the word and help Thea start making cute things again, it would be very much appreciated.

As for me, I've finally been productive lately - I made two new monsters in a row =) The first is Thelma the Giant Skullbelly, who was made from black and white fleece and a skull and crossbones design from a shirt that never fit well (I don't think I even wore it more than twice). I got the idea when I came across the shirt while going through some old stuff...I didn't think about how big it was going to end up being because of the size of the design, but it turned out pretty good in the end.


The day after I got Thelma listed, I started messing around with some of the scraps leftover from making her, and ended up deciding I wanted to make a mummy monster. The bandages are all made from scraps of white fleece that I layered on and I used some SUPER soft green fleece that I'm excited to use more of for other projects for the horns. I just listed her last night and she's already made it into a Halloween treasury, which was really exciting to see. Here is Matilda the Mummified monster!


Hmm...well, besides that, I've gotten some cool mail recently from two different Etsians. Both of these arrived on the same day (I think right around the day I did the last post?) and I wanted to just do a little bit of a write-up about them both. The first is a DVD from RedPanda (a.k.a. Jessica) - she posted on Facebook that she had just finished watching two documentaries and she wanted to pass them along to other people to see as well, so I claimed one and she sent it to me for free, which was AWESOME of her. I haven't sat down to watch it yet, but I'm excited to check out each of the mini-stories.

I am dumb and hold things upside down...

The second thing I received was some dry shampoo from DoctorSweetTooth, which is something I've been wanting to try out for a while now...I've seen it suggested for people who dye their hair and want to delay washing their hair to keep it from fading as quickly. So far, I've only tried it really quickly on my way out of the house, so I'm not totally sure if it's as effective as I had hoped, but I'm going to properly give it a shot once my hair seems to need it next.

Jasmine Vanilla scented, wooo

Alright, well, that's about it for now....talk to you again soon!
