Amigurumi is...

...the Japanese art of knitting or crocheting small stuffed animals, typically cute animals or inanimate objects endowed with human characteristics. The pervading aesthetic of amigurumi is cuteness (kawaii). Typical amigurumi animals have an over-sized spherical head on a cylindrical body with undersized extremities.

Other News Update

Before I forget... two recent events that will impact my life and monsterami's future...

1) Monsterami's application for the Renegade Craft Fair was declined.  I was really disappointed because I thought monsterami fit in perfectly with the Renegade concept. I was baffled when I got the news. I even posted a comment on the Renegade Craft Fair Facebook fan page, expressing sadness that we were declined and stating "I wish I knew why."   Yeah, THEY DELETED MY COMMENT.  I am tempted to tell everyone to BOYCOTT THIS EVENT, but that's just my sour grapes talking.

2) I was given my walking papers at work. My last day will be February 26, 2010.  It sucks, but at least I will have more time for monsterami. I have a lot of ideas for new products and marketing strategies, but not enough time in the day to work on all of them.

One new product idea... baby bibs! I'm in the testing phase right now, washing and drying to test for shrinkage, and even field testing on a REAL LIVE BABY for comfort, durability and scare-ability.  haha
