Mmm... Donuts by VanillaAcolytes
Mmm... Donuts
Work in progress shot of the plush I'm currently working on, I don't normally post WIPs, but I'm extremely happy with how this one is coming along, especially because I'm doing it with no pattern and experimenting with techniques.

If not obvious already, I'm making Homer Simpson. I'm making it in honor of my dad who I lost a year ago to metastatic melanoma. We used to always watch the Simpsons together when I was growing up, and I would joke that he looked and acted like Homer. Well, apparently everyone else agreed because even his co-workers called him Homer. In honor of my dad's lighthearted spirit, we even buried him with a plush Homer. So it seems only fitting that I'm finally making the plush.

I've been really taking my time with this one, so not sure when the completed plush will be up.

After getting frustrated that a lot of my digital photos just didn't show all the detailing I put into my plush, my husband created a 3-D model to showcase my newest plush. Definitely better than the digital photos!

Anyway, I decided to make this plush after I really liked the horse I made for my co-worker. Why is he blue green? Because why not? I've had the color and wanted to use it for a while. The horse looks like I crammed Gumby and Pokey together into one creature.

I started crocheting this a couple of weeks ago at work, but never got around to finishing it. Just a cute little fuzzy monkey that will go up for sale on my Etsy shop. I figured the little scarf helped separate out its body. I couldn't decide whether or not he needed a mouth, so that will be optional to the buyer.
Hello all!

I've been trying to expand out my selection in my Etsy store, but I've hit a bit of a roadblock as far as ideas go. I'm on April vacation, so now's a good time for me to create prototypes for plush to sell on there. I'm looking for things that aren't fan art (I mostly put that on here). Any type of animal, object, etc would work. I have both fuzzy and non-fuzzy yarn to work with, though fuzzy I'm more limited in colors. I try to offer things that are customizable in colors.

I currently have turtles, whales, seals, octopi, mice, and peacocks.

Any suggestions are appreciated! I'll at least make an attempt at any that are suggested.

Ugh, at least it's a job. I've unfortunately had a pretty rough year, but I'm hanging in there. Love life is good. We just celebrated our one year wedding anniversary and we're both happy. What about yourself?

Thank you! It definitely was. My co-workers tried to make it quite enjoyable, and tried to embarrass me as well!
