if you miss a day...

I usually have a daily blog read which takes place when I get home from work, but yesterday I missed it because I went straight from work into London to see the Hoosiers, who were incidentally brilliant live - a real fun band to go and watch, and the lead singer has a fantastic voice too. The downside of this was a very late night, ringing ears when I did get into bed (because I was right next to the speakers) and of course no opportunity to read my daily crafty blogs. Don't get me wrong, I can easily survive without this but it's catching up that is the hard part. I just spent almost 2 hours reading everything I had missed from yesterday, and then also todays updates too. Phew.

Something I came across today on daily candy was a website called Basically, you draw a picture of a creature/person/alien/animal etc and send it to them and they will make it into a soft toy for you. It's not the first time I've seen something like this though, I found lolabee on etsy a while back and she also does the same thing, and all equally as cute (if not a bit cheaper).
Maybe I should give this a go. Mr Monda is pretty good at drawing and has been on a drawing kick of late, here are a couple of his drawings which I think I could make into softies of some description:
Self portraitghetto blaster and trainer

Anyway, maybe this will have to go on the to do list, I have a BIP waiting for me so I'm off now to carry on with it.

Wow - what an artistic team you and Mr Monda make! I love the idea of a softie Ghetto Blaster!

Lucky you, going to see the Hoosiers, he's only tiny (bless him), but I have a little crush on the lead singer after seeing him on Buzzcocks - he's so funny!

What a fab idea to make Mr Monda's drawings into softies - they will be brilliant! Hope the ringing in the ears has worn off! Lucy x
