Plush toys

The weather is warmer so I’m welcoming back my handsewn felt friends. I’m not so sure if my first ice cream cone is so happy to be around. #handsewn #felt #icecream #plushtoy



Thus far this day has been pretty sweet – puzzles, chocolate chip cookies, cartoons and walking around in the snow. I’ve enjoyed the snow day but still hope it’s the last one of the season! 🌬☃️ #blizzard #blizzard2017

Baby Minty

I created this set of pictures for my adorable two-month old niece, Araminta aka Minty (and for her parents, my brother Philip and his wife Carla). I wanted my niece to have something special from me nearby since I can’t see her very often.

In my immediate family, we have animal nicknames. For example my nickname is Bunny. These pictures are of Araminta as a little Fox with different family members as animals.These images were difficult to make because I wanted them to be perfect. I’m glad that her parents love them… and hopefully little Minty does too!

Wonderful Weekend

This past Saturday was my first experience as being a vendor at Brooklyn Flea and it was wonderful!  It was such a beautiful day.  I met some other amazing vendors, made a lot of sales, and got to hang outside in sunshine for the entire day.  I can’t wait to bring Puffed Sleeves to Brooklyn again in May.  Hopefully with some new card designs and maybe some totes too!

Brooklyn Flea

I’m SO excited to say that I will be a first time vendor at BROOKLYN FLEA!!

For the last several summers I have walked around Brooklyn Flea dreaming of Puffed Sleeves being a regular “little store” there. This summer I won’t to daydream. I will be a regular vendor there once a month. Don’t be a stranger! If you are in the Fort Greene/Clinton Hill area, come visit. This month I will be there Saturday, April 23rd from 10 am to 5 pm <3.

I will also be a vendor at Greenpointers Spring Market this month. Come visit the beautiful Greenpoint Loft and sample all the yummy treats they have to offer!
