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.
How clean is the air you breathe? If you live in a city, I'm sure you notice the difference as soon as you venture into the suburbs; air becomes easier to breathe and might even have a sweet scent! The American Lung Association's list of U.S. cities with the cleanest air made me realize I don't recognize most of these cities. Does fewer humans mean less pollution? Today Canada celebrates Clean Air Day, but you can join in no matter where you live. How can you (or do you) support cleaner air where you live? Some ideas are to bike more, carpool to work, or live closer to work. While we're on the topic of breathing, what's with this Asthmatic Playpen?! I'm not a child, but I want to sit in there.
