They’re stocking candy canes at the grocery store, and our local Bed Bath & Beyond’s got plush singing rabbis (I’m not making this up), so that must mean the holidays are near. Gearing up for the holiday season before Thanksgiving fills me with disgust, but being the gut-monger I am, I suppose I must jump aboard the holiday retail bandwagon and remind you to check out our Gutsy Gift Guide. It’ll tell you what to buy if your best friend is getting a mammogram, or just the thing for your diabetic brother. There’s even a sebaceous gland lapel pin for that diligent cosmotologist who got rid of all those zits for ya. Our handy list will help you find just what the doctor ordered for that marvelous nurse, amazing pediatrician, or that special medical student in your life. So take two lapel pins and call us in the morning.

Ever wonder why coffee makes you pee so much more? You likely know caffeine is a diuretic, meaning, something that causes your kidneys to produce more urine. We were wondering if all this extra pee processing was tough on the ol’ bladder, however, research has shown that coffee’s diuretic effects aren’t that much stronger than, say, a glass of water. So unless you’re mainlining five cups a day, or you have bladder issues, your lovely ol’ excretory system should be able to handle your coffee needs so you can stay perky.
I’ve been sewing like crazy working on a few new projects for the upcoming Plush You handmade art plush show, including this Menstrual Cycle pillow at left. Hopefully you can tell it’s a uterus. Plush You put up a nice interview with our guts up on this blog, so read away if you like, or check out some of the other incredible artists slated to show felted fabulousness this October at Schmancy in Seattle. We’re also doing a few small pieces for their sister store, Fancy, which is having a Plush Jewels show in conjunction with the Plush You show. See below for the Urine Luck bladder brooch I just finished for that show. Well, I gotta get back to sewing, deadlines are a-looming.
