Sneak Peek + Happy Mail

So I've been working on a special new plushie for a special new friend. Maria e-mailed me out of the blue to say hello and we have been e-mailing back and forth for days now, about 10 times a day! I am so happy she e-mailed me because I have made a great new friend. Her blog is in Danish, so if you have a google toolbar you can translate it easily :)

As some of you could probably tell, I lost my "plushie mojo" for awhile there (I think it had something to do with making 31 envelope plushies in a few days + several more for a giveaway I'll be having soon). Her plushie idea was just what I needed to get my plushie mojo back.

I have a list of plushies to make for some friends and I PROMISE I did not forget about you!! I will hopefully have most of them finished by the end of next week! I will also be making a "surprise" plushie a friend sent me a tutorial for (I am SUPER excited about this one, I've been wanting to make this one for months!!)

So without further adu, here is your sneak peek :)

Can you guess what it is? I'm sure it's not hard to figure out!! lol

Ok now on to the Happy Mail!!!

I won a giveaway from CaL awhile back and got in my super cute doodles along with a custom Panda one she made me for my wall!! I LOVE IT!!! Thanks so much CaL, you need to sell these! You are incredibly talented!!

Jamie surprised me with this cute "lucky panda". She is so tiny and cute!! I love her, her name is Polly Panda :) Thank you Jamie, I love you!!!

Meg, my happy mail partner this month (and amazingly good friend of mine) sent me this sweet card with goodies for my art journal! Thanks Meg, I am so excited we are partners this month!!

Danielle sent me a sweet NYC care package today!! I want to visit NYC badly so she sent me some NYC love. I absolutely adore those panda stickers and can't wait to read those books!! Thanks Danielle!

I also got some sweet pen pal cards in this week!!!
