Volunteer work for a Pacific Northwest nonprofit organization sewing feeding tubes and other medical equipment into stuffed animals given to children with matching medical needs so they have a friend through good times and hard times.

Feeding tube plush toys

Best Christmas ever to arrange the nonprofit's holiday fundraiser. I asked It's A Wonderful Life actress Karolyn "Zuzu Bailey" Grimes to sign the wings of an angel themed stuffed animal for the auction and she graciously donated a signed copy of her book. The bear even plays a heartwarming message that Karolyn recorded when you press its paw. Here is the image I created for the event --

First Look

Eventually some sort of loyalty program might be good. Free giveaway ideas in the works: Hand poured soy wax candles inspired by Zoobaybay pleasantly scented with lemon pound cake, citrus, and vanilla fragrance oils. Created in upcycled glass containers with all natural cotton wicks that are metal free. The tags are hand stamped vintage tartlet tins.

Here's a glimpse at the huggable plush toy Petals and Her Paintbrush collectible. Petals is handmade with multi-colored fleece material under-stuffed with polyester fibers. Her paintbrush is a combination of felt and fleece. Petals has child safe embroidered eyes, suitable for ages 3 and up.

Night light design

"Multiple colors flew from the paintbrush bristles and splashed onto the wall dripping into the shape of a door with luminescence like stained glass, opened by a doorknob that hummed a lovely song."

Design for Petals and Her Paintbrush inspired night light. Packaging made from handmade paper embedded with flower seeds to draw on, plant, and grow.
