Happy Days

I have the cutest new friend to share with you today, and her name is Happy.

A while back I won a give-away on Hena's blog for a custom made "creature" from Create My Creature,  a super cute etsy store by Amanda.  She uses children's (or adults!) drawings and transforms them into stuffed animals.  Chloe was so excited to design her creature, whom she named Happy.


Amanda was amazing to work with throughout the entire process.  We emailed back and forth about different fabric colors and textures, and she was really great about asking for Chloe's input on all of the details.  Chloe had so much fun helping in the design process.  Check out Amanda's blog for details about Happy!

Yesterday, a very important package arrived in the mail for Chloe!


She turned out incredible!!

Chloe absolutely LOVES Happy!  Amanda even made her a carrying bag, a tutu and two lace skirts as accessories.  And since Happy likes to swim (according to her DNA sheet that Amanda gave us to fill out), she also has her own beach towel.  She's hooked up!


Chloe was so ecstatic that she wanted to make a video all about Happy.  I'm not sure why she keeps referring to Happy as a "he" in the video, but most of her stuffed animals tend to change genders all willy nilly so I guess it's to be expected.  Enjoy!


I highly recommend Amanda's custom creatures for any kid in your life.  They would make awesome birthday and Christmas gifts!

Have a great weekend!
