And so, after great thought and angst, I am here to tell you abbydid is no longer making plush. The stuffed critters are going into retirement. I have gathered them all together from whatever shops they were dwelling in and listed them in my etsy shop. Now is your last chance to go give one a good home!
I'm embarking on a new frontier, one that is wholly foreign to me. I'm moving away from the craft world, a place where I have lots of friends and have had wonderful experiences, to the art world, which is a wee bit daunting to this little art school drop out. I'm working on building my portfolio, entering open calls to group shows, and seeing where things take me. I'm trying not to get too worried about the future and just focus on the present. Make the art, see what comes.

This means I won't be vending at craft shows any longer. Working shows had just stopped being fun for me ages ago. I still love going as a "civilian" and shopping at them. It's been a joy watching Cincinnati really come into its own with a vibrant indie craft scene. I've met the most incredible people through those shows, and witnessed such creativity and inspiration and ingenuity. I will forever support handmade with all my heart and soul, and you should, too.

But enough of that. For now, let's bid a fond farewell to the critters! Please adopt them all up. Their happy little faces look up at me, so hopeful, asking if today's the day they get some new people. You are those people, I just know it. So go on, look around in the shop. I made something just for you. Go find it:)
