Hey everyone!

I grew up and got a real job and stuff, so don't expect too many updates in the coming months (probably years too). I don't come on here much anymore, so if you'd like to get in touch you can find me at www.kingdomofawesome.com

Cheers, and keep up the cute!

Hey everyone!

No updates yet, I'm still pretty swamped at work so you'll have to wait a little longer. :)

I've been getting lots of requests lately about using my work so I thought I'd leave a note here. As I'm sure a lot of you know I'm a huge proprietor of open source and sharing so I would like to invite you all to use my work in any non-commercial way (meaning you can't make money off of it). I don't mind if you use my patterns to make plushies to sell, but the proceeds MUST go to charity. Of course gift giving is totally fine :)

If you want to alter my patterns and re-release them thats fine too, but again you may not make money on them and whatever you release must be open for others to alter themselves.

Thanks everyone!

The cherrymix store is open again selling 1 inch buttons. They're $4 for a pack of 4 random buttons from my awesome collection. Shipping is $1.50 to anywhere in the world!
___________

Things have been pretty busy lately so I probably won't be making any updates for a bit.

I have a list of things to do which include a pattern and tutorial for tiny unicorns and the steak and working on a collaboration with Bonio. I'm also drafting a pattern for a potato which is probably the most hilarious thing i've done in awhile... treating potatoes like mini dress mannequins, pinning down paper and ribbon to them to try and get a pattern for a totally non-geometric blob.

Just didn't want anyone to think I've forgotten about them!

Hi everyone! The cherrymix store is open again selling awesome 1 inch buttons. They're $4 plus $1.50 shipping to anywhere in the world!

_____________________________________________

I was tagged by :iconcatzilla:
List ten things about your art, then tag 3 people to do the same.

1. I draft patterns on rejected graphic design proofs from my real job.
2. All my work is done on a small baby-blue Kenmore sewing machine that cost me $100.
3. I am self taught.
4. I like the challenge of drafting new patterns, but don't like to make more than one or two of the same design.
5. I have been propositioned many times to sell my designs in stores, but decline so ya'll can have my patterns for free.
6. My favourite fabrics to use are faux fur (hides mistakes) and felt (thousands of colours)
7. Because I spend so much time writing/reading in internet shorthand for my real job, I have horrible grammar and usually have to get people much younger than me to proof read my patterns. (thanks everyone!)
8. I usually only work on plush toys in the afternoon when i can get natural sunlight in my studio.
9. My studio is bright yellow and has only one plush toy in it. A jaguar shark a girl sewed for me from Craftster. It's amazing.
10. I don't actually watch anime that often.

Since I'm so late on the uptake right now I'm not going to tag anyone since I'm sure everyone has done it already anyway.

In other news I am being considered for a very good job at a local agency and so please cross your fingers for me :)

Hey everyone! The cherrymix website is back up. I switched servers from doteasy to my own since I don't have traffic quotas on my own! Sorry for everyone who needed things off of it.
Back to business as usual! Yay!

The store is also open again selling buttons. They are $4 plus $1.50 shipping to anywhere in the world. You get 4 random one-inch buttons.

Hi everyone!
My little sister is coming to visit me next week so I have taken some time off work and that has given me time to update! Also to renew my deviantart subscription which will be very nice. Also I will be opening a small part of the cherrymix store up again. Probably just buttons and things though.

Thanks to everyone who stops by and comments! I really appreciate it. If anyone has any pattern requests I would love to hear them.

Also I want to start a section on the cherrymix site of work people have made based on my patterns. If you want to showcase your work, please let me know!

Hey everyone!
I've been super busy since graduating from University. Lots of work and job offers and other great stuff. Unfortunetly I still probably won't be updating again for awile unless it's more design work. I've gotten a few requests for patterns and I am doing my best to work them up.

Thanks to everyone who stops by for a visit and leaves me comments!

:star: Hey everyone! Things have been pretty hectic for me lately. I'm starting my last semester of university tomorrow so then I have to go get a full time job and all that fun stuff. I'm pretty excited about it. So theres some good news and some bad news for all of you. The bad news is I probably won't be continuing to make new cherrymix plushies. It's time for me to pursue the other things I'm interested in. The good news is I'm slowly but surely making instruction sheets for almost all my plush designs so you'll be able to make your own. I'll post them here and on the new DIY section of the website.

Cheers everyone!
