So, a couple of years ago I decided to start making these little plushies that I called imaginary friends, cuz they looked a lot like the cartoon Foster's Home for Imaginary friends. I made a few, one for my boyfriend and one for me, and stopped for a while. Then, one of my best friends had some tonsil trouble the summer before senior year, so I made him a friend and put it in his car with a note.

His friend's name is Maurice:

One of my other friends' was dropping out of high school, so we would rarely get to see him, so I made him Frank:

I've made a few that don't have pictures, mostly for birthdays/graduation presents, but then I had stopped because most of my friends had them already.
Then I came to college.
My RA had a crazy weekend where someone defaced her poster about alcohol awareness the night before it was supposed to be graded, so I made her Bernice:

My friend down the hall had her boyfriend break up with her in quite possibly the worst way ever (getting his ex girlfriend pregnant) so I made her Frankie Z.

And then a week ago, I heard that one of my friends back home had his dad pass away due to lung cancer, so I made him a friend yet to be named and sent it off Tuesday.

I'm sure there will be more, as my boyfriend thinks I should sell them, but I haven't quite decided whether I will or not yet.

Thanks for looking!

The only true currency in this bankrupt world is what we share with someone else when we're uncool.

it'll be ok in the end. if it's not OK, it isnt the end

I love them. They remind me of the TV show Aaahh!!! Real Monsters.

So many things to make and so little time.
