As we all heave a huge sigh of relief that the election is over and we can go back to thinking about things like holiday feasts, and winter craft projects, and board game cocktails... or whatever we were thinking about right before we had to think about this crazy election... I wanted to turn your attention once again to my sparklingly talented friend Jenny Strunge and her super cute designs for Land of Nod (the new children's shop owned by Crate & Barrel - my favorite place to gaze longingly at things I might break on accident with my butt). Land of Nod commissioned a handful of artists this year to design craft themed toys for the holidays and Jen is just ONE among a handful of people I admire that got the chance to do this! Like these? You can see Jen's line of handmade one-of-a-kind monsters, cats and sea creatures at www.cottonmonster.com, or visit her this Saturday in Washington, DC - where she will be shivering & selling in a booth near Red Prairie Press at Crafty Bastards Arts & Crafts Fair. (More info on this great local craftstravaganza HERE).
