Cheeky Little Monkey is my new favorite phrase! I think it's more used in the UK as in 'Amanda, get your face out of the peanut butter jar, you cheeky little monkey, you!' My favorite late night talk show guy, Craig Ferguson says it all the time. So what does that have to do with softies? Well, it seems to me to be the perfect phrase to encompass the variety of softies out there: some are cute, some sweet, some funny and some are little monsters! And starting today, I'm making a weekly section called "Cheeky Little Monkey" featuring a softie maker and his/her Cheekly Little Monkey collection.
This week it's Jenny Harada! Jenny is a talented artist with an original vision and sense of humor. Here are some of her softies:
Jenny is also one of the organizers of Plush Rush, a softie gallery and sale held this past December in Columbus, Ohio. Too bad it wasn't a touring show! Also check out her really unique plush Halloween masks - it's never too early to start planning your outfit!
