For those of you who kindly left comments on the interview I did with Kristen Rask of Plush You, we’ll be determining the winner of the Mochimochi Land gift certificate soon! Kristen has been traveling, and has been without much internet access, so as soon as things settle down for her we’ll be contacting the winner.
Kristen is actually in New York right now, and I had the privilege of sitting down with her on Monday for a cup of coffee and a chat about her Seattle store Schmancy and their huge annual plush show, among other things. It was so much fun! I had met Kristen only briefly before, so it was great to get to know her better. She’s even busier than I had thought, organizing all the shows and events that take place at Schmancy, in addition to running the store itself, and she’s working on a couple of books at the same time. And look—she brought me a present!
This sweet little bag is a Schmancy original, made by Kristen herself. I don’t know how she squeezes in time to do her own crafts, but I feel lucky to benefit from her industriousness! The little bag is perfect for holding knitting notions, so I’ll be using it a lot. And the cute little cloudy thing is a pin! I really need to brighten up my workspace, so I think I’ll find a way to use it for decorating.
Thank you Kristen!!
Update: I just realized that the magnets in my laptop are perfect for hanging Little Cloudy. Yay!
