Monsters Ahead!

I won't bore you with my tale of woe (the one about me being over being sick - but still so drained that I can hardly make myself do anything. That tale.) and instead just direct you to the coolest monster site ever.



Now I've been a fan of Uglydolls for some time but I'm afraid that they will have to be firmly supplanted by the newly discovered Cotton Monsters!


These amazing and nearly animate-looking creatures are the creations of the Baltimore native, wildly imaginative artist, Jennifer Strunge. (Fabulous interview of her here).

The only problem I see with these engaging critters is that she sells out of them about as fast as she makes them. (Please Santa - won't you get some elves to help her out for Christmas? I'd reallyreallyreally like one!) And it's not just stuffed plushies. There are inflatable monsters, puppet monsters and wearable monsters. (OK - I admit it. The Monster Bra has got to be my favorite!)

I'll probably dream of plush monster babies in my sleep tonight...

I think perhaps that this is a little what the monsters who live in our house look like. They hide when cats and people are about, but make an awful mess.
