Wee Peppermint Beast Workshop
Here is the Wee Peppermint Beast and his two friends. These fellows are wee, and perfect for hanging on your tree. Come make one of these guys with me at the Wee Peppermint Beast Workshop at Gallery Hanahou in NYC on December 19. Reserve your space now! Hope to see you there! :)

The weather had been gloomy and it took me many attempts to photograph these little guys adequately. I just kept adding and and adding lamps. I finally set them up under the winter garden grow lights. Mark is working on setting up my little dream indoor garden as I type. I am so excited to grow spinach indoors this winter. The setup is about 95% complete. Well, until I figure out a better way to photograph plushies, I think the plants are going to get temporarily booted every now and again. If you have any advice for setting up indoor lighting for photography, please do share!
P.S. tips for doing it on the cheap would be preferable because my budget for lighting is approximately $0, haha!

For those of you who won’t be able to make it to the workshop but still would like to make yourself a little beast, stay tuned for the pattern, and possibly a kit. In the meantime, if you’re feeling Xmassy, you could busy your hands with some elf chum making if you like. We made these creepy little darlings at the Luv-able and Hug-able workshop I led last year and it was a grand old time.
