Jenny Smith Plush Artist

Crafting is cool…

Barry was away in Las Vegas and has returned.  It’s nice to have him back.  It was strange to be in the apartment by myself.  I was fairly productive while he was away.  I made a koala named Klauss.  Klauss is a big boy at 17 inches!  He is right at home in this tree!  Unfortunately, it’s not a Eucalyptus tree, it’s a ficus.  Klauss is newly listed in my shop.

Time for a koala joke….

Q:  What does one have to do to be in the Australian Olympics?

A: Koala-fy

Hee. Hee. Hee.

I also made a few foxes.  Their names are Finnegan and Francis.  When we were up on the roof, the foxes and koala got acquainted and did a little sunning and then had a bit of a cuddle fest and a hedgehog even joined in the party!When I was about to go up to the rooftop, (our apartment is 3 floors and we are on the 2nd) I said to Barry, “I hope nobody sees me up there!”  Well, as I was taking a few photos, my landlord Kirk, appeared with two potential tenants.  I felt a bit embarassed.  I mean, I love making softies and I love what I do, but I don’t really know how strangers feel when they see a grown woman with four stuffed animals wrapped in her arms.  I pondered it and decided that I don’t really care what others think of me, and that I need to embrace my passion and talent.  So, I am officially declaring that I make softies, plush or stuffed animals and I am proud of it!  There, I said it, I’m “out” in West Hollywood.  I feel much better now.

Happily plushed out!   J 🙂

My name is Jenny Smith and I am a Teddy Bear Artist. I have a need to be creative many hours per day. I am currently living in West Hollywood and my Canadian blood is enjoying the sunny warmth of Southern California. When I am not sewing and creating, you can find me, running, working out, writing, drawing, reading, gardening and attending the occasional flea market.
