I’m sure you’ve all seen the giant meat plushies by the wonderful and talented Lauren of Sweet Meats! They’re clever and hilarious and eco-friendly! She’s from right here in San Francisco and her Sweet Meats booth is always a fun presence at local craft fairs like the San Mateo Maker Faire. The incredible Lauren even teaches a plush making class at the Workshop SF and partners with the San Francisco Food Bank! I had the happy opportunity to work with her since she was a major part of the planning committee for the San Francisco Bazaar Bizarre Holiday Craft Show!

She is also a small business blogger at her blog Biz Miss, which I just recently discovered, and she writes a ton of super helpful business articles at the Bazaar Bizarre SF blog too! I read each of her super informative articles line by line because they’re so well written and explains business things in simple ways and I can user her advice directly, effectively, and immediately to Mochi Studios.

Lauren is an incredibly huge inspiration to me for her imaginative plush creations, her dedication to environmental and social responsibility, and her support of craft business owners and teaching the plush makers of tomorrow! We kept missing each other at the holiday craft shows last December but I hope to meet Lauren in person one day soon to thank her for all she has done and tell her how much I admire her and want to be like her.
