Nicely Knit

I never mastered knitting, and crochet is my yarn twisting hobby. I found this amazing shop, TheHunnyBunnyCompany, on zibbet full of adorable knit animals. It brings back tender memories of my mom knitting little pocket rabbits for my brothers, and even a turtle for me. I know how much work and love goes into these adorable Hunny Bunny friends, and they will be passed down and treasured for generations.

My dad would hide a bunny in the living room and my brothers and I would search for it. What a wonderful game that was.
I can relate to this knitter's overwhelming string of creative ideas, and knot enough time to get them done as quickly as she would like. Having or giving one of these handmade treasures is so uplifting. Her creations have gone out internationally giving hugs and smiles.

She crafts her huggable critters in the United Kingdom, ships internationally, and is also found on Etsy. Whether you are looking for a kitten, rabbit, elephant, Scottie dog, or mermaid, custom orders are welcome.

Beautiful Bugs

Take a good look at these creepy crawlies and you will have a surprise; they are made from fabric, paper, and other rescued materials. Regina has done an incredible job handcrafting these insect displays. Her shop, Vidogo, is found on etsy and means small in Swahili. Inspired by the creatures she found in her garden, she embarked on her insect art with passion.

No creatures are harmed in the creation of her faux taxidermied subjects. A shadow box would make a great gift for a teacher, a budding bug collector, or any entomology enthusiast. They will certainly be an eye-catching addition to any room. Look at the size of that moth. Can you imagine a (huntsman) clock spider?
