Big People like Softies too!

Vivien contacted me to see if I could make this softie for her husbands 46th birthday. He had drawn it for his daughter who loved it so much they decided to bring it to life. They were hoping I could make the teeth sparkly like the drawing.....DONE! Happy Bithday Stone!!

I had to share what Vivien had to say about their softie    :)

Hi Terri,  we just received our Softie and it is beyond perfect!  You did such a fantastic job,  thank you so much.  I could not even wait until his birthday, I had to give it to him right away.  We are blown away at your talent.  You will probably hear from us again.  I cannot thank you enough. 

Lots of Love,

This little drawing was done by Marci's daughter when she was about 2. She is now 11 but Marci wanted to turn it into a softie with sentimental value.....how sweet!

This softie has arrived at it's destination and Nira couldn't be more happy! She has already named her softie 'Cookie'.

The Ultimate Dragon

So Brandon (age 7) drew the most amazing dragon! His mom Sara asked me if I could bring it to life for him. I said of course! Little did I know this wonderful dragon would consume me! I spent alot of extra time and made sure every detail is there. I think it turned out wonderful! Brandon liked it so much he asked his mom if they could come pick it up. Great! except for the fact that they live in Mississippi and I live in Washington state!!! Thank You for a wonderful adventure Brandon!

Happy Birthday

'Super Bunny Man' was a big hit!!

Email from Andrew:

Just wanted to let you know that Super Bunny Man was a huge hit.  He was very surprised and delighted.  It's just about always  the first thing he tells his friends and family about when they ask what he got for his birthday which is a pretty amazing fact since you were competing with an ipod touch and a mountain bike.

ipod & mountain bike!!!! WOW!!!! That sure makes what I do all worth while :)

'Super Bunny Man'
Andrew's son drew this and he (Andrew) is having it brought to life for his son's bithday gift.

This was a challenge....a big person drawing. Liz wanted her business logo to become a softie. With a little trial and error (cuz it needed to stand on it's own and be on both sides) it turned out awesome!

 So, Joe was in need of a 'Sad Panda' for his sweet girlfriend. Look as he may he could not find what he was after. He showed me this picture in hopes that I could custom make something similar. I think I nailed it!! Joe has a lucky girlfriend!!
