"Ennh! Ennh!" he says. "I can'ts get ups!
Remember this little grey bunny that started hanging out in my apartment complex? Well, I saw him hiding under the wheel of my car the other day. When I walked halfway up to him, he started hopping over to me and sniffed my shoe. Wish I could have stayed to pet him but I was late for work!
At least one of them is. My apartment complex used to have all these domestic-looking bunnies (the kind people normally keep as pets) flopping around wild. About a year or more ago, they disappeared and I haven't seen one until this past week.
I've been wanting to post this since I saw it linked off a coworker's FB profile.
Meet Angela Y. Lee, a creator of creatures! That is, she's a rather imaginative person in Peoria, IL who makes huggable, lovable, customized plush toys by hand. I was quite taken by the sunny disposition of her website, its inhabitants, and the adorable little stories bursting out of every seam. A few things you should know about her operation:
- She never makes duplicates, so no two creatures are alike!
- She customizes it with your favorite colors, animals, ideas, and dreams.
- Her day trade: graphic designer.
- Her creatures are not cheap, but isn't buying handmade worth it!?
From her website: "I was living by myself in a dark, bug-infested, sublevel apartment with no furniture. I guess making soft little creatures comforted me while I was transitioning into this new city." I actually asked her blessing to post about her creatures. Her response: "Sure you can include my creatures on your blog, they would like that :)"
