playtime: puff

who remembers puffalumps?!  here is my first of my toychest series for the autumn society's PLAYTIME show this month! every time a new show comes along i try to think of an idea that may be more likely to appeal to its audience, but it always ends with me making what i love, even if i'm the only one. i can't seem to force myself to make something i don't care about. so for this one, i put my heart and soul into this! it's simple, but i painted my soul mate, puff. he is literally my favorite thing of all time and i've had him since i was born. as lame as it is, i've brought him everywhere, including sleepovers when i was "too old" to bring stuffed animals, college, vacations (that includes present and future vacations...), and i have slept with him every single night (except the past few years, partially because my jerk boyfriend thinks he's gross, but mostly because i don't think he can survive any more holes or tearing.)  he may be old and falling apart, but i plan to keep him forever. you can see a big hole in his ear thanks to an old habit i for some reason called "cuffing" where i'd repeatedly rub my finger over his ear.  it's still a form of comfort to me. i'm a child.

this is what he used to look like (thank you internet stock photos) and his current condition. 

love him.
