Pink Cheeks Studios Birthday Post: Inspiration!


Hello Plush Team blog readers.  My name is Nichol, I am the one woman show behind Pink Cheeks Studios.  Yesterday was my birthday and I turned 33.  For my birthdays I like to make my family all bake a cake from scratch together.  Yesterday we made angel food cake from scratch, something I never ever considered making from scratch before.  It seems like when strawberries are in season, angel cakes just sprout up fully baked onto tables at the grocery store.  But that is not true, you can bake them and it is fun.  At one point my son thought we were "making a cloud".  That is how much fun it is!  I used this recipe.

I make baby mobiles now, after a long time of making bigger dolls in the form of Mr. Mustaches and Sophisticated stout ladies with flowers on their hats.  The mobiles that are most popular are the "personalized family mobiles" where I make tiny plush versions of each family member.  



It's a great job, very fulfilling and challenging, two of my top priorities for satisfying work!  But sometimes I like to dream of doing something bigger and artier.  It will always involve fabric and needles and thread.  I don't know exactly what I will make.  I imagine a time in the future when there is more time and less worry about money when I will be able to spend time on the bigger and the artier.  In the mean time I like to collect images for inspiration.  I would like for whatever I make to fit into the world that these images fit in.  Here they are, I have a link to their original posts below the photos:

I like soft, bright, mysterious and slightly odd. 

Thanks for reading!

Best wishes,
Nichol
