Felt Club was amazing!!

Hey Party People!
So Felt Club was awesome this year at the Shrine Auditorium!! There were SO many people with SO many amazing ideas-I was in heaven! Sweet & Sour Goodies did really well-not bad for our debut appearance ;) We had a great time and met alot of really kool kats. I would have to say that the most popular dolls of the day would have to be the Nun, the Yeti, and the Luchadores!! I would also like to thank Jenny Ryan and all the Felt Club organizers for a fantastic event!! And of course, thank you to my great friends, my family and my better half for their support! You guys are SO hardcore!!
So it's back to the workroom to get ready for my next show of the year-The Holiday Hit List in Point Loma on December 7th!! If you're in the area please be sure to check it out!
Here are some pictures from Felt Club:
"The Panda" posing for the camera! She's such an awesome assistant, so I told her I'd buy her something pretty!
This photo is pre-Felt Club when I was counting all my inventory and taking stock of all the dolls that I would be bringing.

For a moment, our house was being overtaken by dolls!! Craig is really relieved that the show went well-now he has room for his surfboard ;D
Here's a photo from I Heart Guts.
I love these internal organs!! I would have to say that the heart is my favorite- it would make a great anniversary present!
Here's the stuff made by Erika at My Imaginary Boyfriend.
I love the robots, the coal and of course the logs!! Her stuff is totally awesome!
Here is a picture of my booth set up. Again, the astroturf was well received (Thanks Craig!) And those little ninja ornaments sold super fast-I couldn't believe it!
I can't say it enough-Felt Club rocked and I am so excited to see what happens next for Sweet & Sour Goodies....so stay tuned everyone.

"I predict a riot...."

Introducing the newest addition to the Sweet & Sour Goodies family.....the Punk!! I've had sketches of this doll for a while now and I thought I would make some just in time for Felt Club. I love the little chains on the vest and yes, those pants are made of spandex!!

Sweet & Sour Goodies in San Francisco...ummm, it was awesome!!

Hey Everyone!
My apologies for the lack of posting, but I just came back from "You Bazaar" in San Francisco. The event was pretty awesome and we met a lot of really cool and sweet people which is always a bonus when you're doing events like this. Sweet & Sour Goodies had a very good response so that puts a smile on my face :D
Here are some photos from my trip:
Here's my friend Emily purchasing some fantastic fabric at Whiz Bang Fabrics in the Mission District. If you are ever in the area, please check this place out. It's cozy and funky all at the same time!! You could spend alot of time there just admiring all the fabric selections....it will blow your mind! And the staff is super sweet!
It rained a lot while I was over there, but I didn't let that stop us from venturing the city and going to my "must-see" hot spots!

Here I am at "You Bazaar". I've been testing out my booth set-up, so this is one of the options that will work for now. I will definitely stay with the astroturf (which my husband got me as a present...nothing says romance, like a big slab of astroturf!)

Here's my sister, the Panda. She's eating a plush tempura shrimp! We purchased these awesome plush pillows from the cool gals at The Donut Lounge. We went by their booth at least a dozen times! Check it out when you get a chance!
Here's a bag I received from Claudia at b Green Design. Claudia is very nice and really funny!! We had a good time being booth neighbors with her and Lauren from Lauren Smash .

I also purchased some other cool items like a Kokeshi doll, eiffel tower earrings, owl ornaments and a slab of meat from the following vendors:
Beyond Wonderland
and my all time favorite
Sweet Meats

Big ups to my family that let me stay with them! You guys are so wonderful and I love you so much! I really had a great time and all the people involved were amazing! It definitely inspires me to keep going and to keep creating!

So stay tuned...Felt Club is coming soon!
