Joey Joe Joe Bean is that friend everyone just needs to have. On those days when the rain doesn't let up and all you want to do is put on your fuzzy bunny slippers and not leave the house, Joey Joe Joe Bean is there. He is smiling too. He doesn't make you feel bad when your pajamas are still on at 3 in the afternoon. He'll help you crank the Whirly Pop and salt your popcorn as you watch the entire season of Project Runway. He shares the remote and offers you tissues when something sad happens on Grey's Anatomy, and doesn't even blink when you confess to him that you actually like those reality dating shows. He's Joey Joe Joe Bean and he's your very good friend.
Billy Bob went out west yesterday to California, and it was sad to see him go, but he's moving on, and I have to too. So I made Joey Joe Joe Bean. He's wearing a sweat suit. Sweat suits aren't the most aesthetically pleasing garment around, but they are so comfortable and they make me feel happy when it's raining. I think Project Runway should have a challenge to make sweat suits more fashionable, but they wouldn't be able to add any bells and whistles (am I using that phrase right?), because they would have to retain the essence of the sweat suit.
Also, if you are a plush artist there is a Plush show going on in June that has a call for entries out. The theme is Fable, Folk, Fantasy. Their deadline is March 29th! Here it is: CLICK ME!
