Goodies Going to GALA...

4 years ago

I have some exciting news!  Some of my little stuffed animals and onesies and other goodies can now be found in a store.  YAY! 

I have been working on some new stuffies and such for the past couple of weeks and over the weekend I dropped off the first lot of goodies to a local shop, GALA (Guild of Artists Local to the Area).  IMG_8360
This shop is filled with so many wonderfully handmade items, jewelry, pottery, tea towels, knitted items, photography and wooden toys to name a few.  I am so happy and honored to join these other local artisans!  

If you are local to the DC/Kensington/Silver Spring area you should stop by and take a look around. 

This lot included... IMG_8336

I am very excited and nervous at the same time.  When I made my first stuffed elephants seven years ago as first Christmas gifts for my three baby nephews I never would have thought about selling them, not on etsy, not at craft fairs, and certainly not in a store...but it's happening...I hope people fall in love with them as much as I have, as much as Violet and Henry have...
