It started in college, my addiction to movie review sites.  I read the likes of http://www.stomptokyo.com to pass the time while working in my college computer lab.  I later join the sites message board and learn that my peers are creating review sites of their own. I wanted to do the same.
But, like any good movie, I had to have a gimmick. I've been sewing since I was ten.
The gimmick is born.
Well, those that know my site, http://www.freewebs.com/rabbitreviews seem to like my writing-or at least I hope so, since I want to write for a living someday.  It seems that the most positive feedback stemmed from the site's focal point, namely two felt rabbits by the name of Dexter and Ichabod.
Well, two rather disturbed looking rabbits named Dexter and Ichabod, anyway.
I wanted to dedicate the site to horror movies, so I wanted my spokesbunnies to have a Frankenstein look to them.  This was easily achieved with embroidery thread to stich together the felt.  All I needed were a few X stitches and my rabbits got the look I wanted. 
Well, a couple of pictures and a lot of time and frustration in photoshop, the site was up and running.  If nothing else, I differentiated myself from my peers.  I walk the fine line between a review site, a webcomic and a craft site.

very snazzy!! I like your bunnies. They have a very thoughtful air to them, and you did a great job with the frankenstein look.

Forgot to mention: Dexter is the pink bunny and Ichabod the white and red one.
