Stuffed Magazine Autumn 2014

My Dear Darling in Stuffed Magazine A huge moment for Niko (and me!) this month because he's featured in Stuffed Magazine! When Danielle from Stuffed contacted me if I was interested in submitting some works early this year, I was ecstatic! Remember these sneak peeks? :) I'm completely honored to be featured next to SO many talented plush makers!
