I drifted away from my Pink Cheeks last week. This usually happens about every 3 months, I am just starting to recognize this pattern in myself. My 3 month funk usually involves moving all the furniture around in my house or spray painting something that I look at every day. This cycle was furniture moving. I also sewed some friendly trees. I have been wanting to make plush scenes to photograph ever since I saw The Look Book by Chris Sickles who, amazingly enough, lives in Indianapolis (go Hoosiers!).
At first, I wanted to do elaborate scenes with handmade things and found objects, but that idea never developed any legs because it was too open ended. So, now I am limiting myself to all plush scenes and I started with friendly trees (below).
I look forward to sewing plenty of props as they come to me, and then arranging them with my Pink Cheeks. Next up are homes and apartment buildings and clothing lines.
