Sunday was the last SoWa market of the season, and there were lots of zombies running around! It was a long day, but a lot of fun.

A post or two back i linked to the Plush You! show flickr page. Yesterday I was puttering around the Bluebottles blog and i was surprised to see my Plush You interview posted! Yes, it's an old interview - you can tell by the question that asks what i'm looking forward to and i say "that it's starting to smell like summer." Haha. Take a look at it here - just scroll down the page a bit. It's right after the post about the super cute window displays.

pumpkin bread

Well, i have been a busy bee! I'm trying to get ornaments done soon so i can photograph them and put them on etsy. Also, the Plush You! Show has posted pictures, and you can check them out here! There's some pretty cool stuff on display.

You may have noticed the pictures of pumpkin bread. I made some recently and it is quite delicious. Here is the recipe:

Pumpkin Bread
  • 1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin puree
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 3 cups white sugar
  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour three 7x3 inch loaf pans.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together pumpkin puree, eggs, oil, water and sugar until well blended. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and ginger. Stir the dry ingredients into the pumpkin mixture until just blended. Pour into the prepared pans.
  3. Bake for about 50 minutes in the preheated oven. Loaves are done when toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

Jake helped. He wished that i had made banana bread instead, but he liked how the bread was the same color as him.

Sheep Chubbikins!

Sheep chubbikins are here! I've had them for a while, but never put them on etsy because i didn't want to distract from my halloween ones. But the wait is over people! Take a look at them in my shop here.

back from NYC!

Quick note: yours truly turned 25 this week. Yikes, sounds so adult.

Well, i got back on monday night, but i didn't really have anything to write about. I still don't really, but i thought i'd update anyway! Although it started with a car break in, our trip was great! I especially loved the bronx zoo. So fun! Since i've been back, i've been mostly hanging around and playing video games. But I made a special bat to donate to the silent auction at the Wings of Hope Wildlife Sanctuary in Louisiana. Pretty cool! Anything to help out the animals. You can see their website

I received my christmas cards from overnight prints the other day. They look good! Except for one - i'm trying to decide if the mistake is big enough for me to have to reorder them. But if i'm thinking about it, it probably means i should, right? Sigh. I'll start on the christmas chubbikins soon. Hopefully christmas things will start showing up in my store by mid-october. We'll see!
