It turns out our Valentine’s Day card contest did more than help us put together one cool card, it also introduced us to some really exciting new artists. One of them is Montreal’s Stay Home, which makes all kinds of happy little felt things from custom dolls to plush ornaments.
But what I really love is the handstitched mew mew brooch which reminds me of a cross between Max from Where the Wild Things Are, and my daughter in last year’s Halloween costume.
It’s made of felt and stuffed to perfect puffiness, for just $9 it’s just waiting for a friendly home on a spring jacket or messenger bag that’s lacking in personality. Mew. –Liz
