Bye bye November!

Hello December!

With December only a day away and Christmas just around the corner, this is shaping up to be one to the busiest times of the year for me. There's a lot happening; in just two days it's Giveaway Day. It's a super way to discover lots of great new crafters, blogs and shops and to try your luck getting your hands on a whole lot of handmade items, crafty goodies and even yummy homemade food! I'm taking part again this year, so keep your eyes peeled for a chance of nabbing something cute on the 2nd. :)

Right after Giveaway Day has commenced, the Luv-able + Hug-able show opens on the 3rd. If you're able to make it to Gallery Hanahou, do go see the show, it'll be awesome!

Luv-able + Hug-able

Luv-able and Hug-able
New 2009 theme: medium and mini!

December 3 - January 9
Opening party: Dec 3, 6-9 pm RSVP info@galleryhanahou.com

gallery hanahou / 611 Broadway, Suite 730, NYC / galleryhanahou.com
extended holiday hours Mon-Sat: 12 - 6 pm

The popular NY holiday plush show is returning to gallery hanahou with oodles of handmade plushes for you and yours! Spread warm holiday cheer with adorable, strange, and funny unique plush toys made by more than 50 top plush artists from around the world.

The plushes will be even cuter and more affordable at this year's 3rd annual "Luv-able and Hug-able," with the special theme of "Medium and Mini!": toys that are either just the right size for hugging or small enough to fit in your pocket, swing from a keychain, or be worn on a pin.

Many favorite artists from the past two years are returning with cuter-than-ever plushes, and gallery hanahou is thrilled to present plushes from a bunch of hug-able new artists too! As in previous years, the gallery will also exhibit plushes by Japanese artists whose original works are rarely available in the US - this year, that also includes designer toy giants Devil Robots and noriya takeyama!

Plushes will be available for immediate take-home, so come early to the December 3rd opening to nab your favorites! Items in the show will also be available online via galleryhanahou.com starting the week following the opening.

So, so many amazing plush-artists have their work on show (and for sale too!) there, including such great plushie-makers as Christina Gordon (Jam Fancy), Sandra Monat (herzensart), Hine Mizushima and Tania of Super Ninon and many, many others! I'm incredibly honoured to have my rag-snowflakes rub shoulders with such famous artists!

After all this, I have parties to attend almost every week the whole month, friends and family to visit too and to top it all off, Christmas things to prepare as well! I don't mind being busy though, I like the holiday season and I really enjoy Christmas and all that goes with it so having Christmassy things to putter about with is a joy.

And with that, I bid farewell to November and look forward to a December filled to the brim with wonder, excitement and fun! :)
