Easter Gift Idea, Custom Stuffed Animals From a Drawing

If you haven’t heard about Budsies yet, you’re missing out.  Budsies are custom stuffed animals from a drawing. Any drawing. Check out Abby’s new Easter bunny Budsie below. The kids are getting older but I still love to celebrate every holiday as if they’re not. It’s my way of kidding myself that time is standing still. So, no matter how old they get, I still buy them Easter Baskets and fill them with fun products I find on the world wide web. I do 99.9 percent of my shopping online due to failed back surgery but that’s a whole other post. While surfing around for ideas, I discovered Budsies.com. And voila, a lightbulb moment occurred. I can make the kids an Easter Basket that’s not quite as babyish by adding in something unique while managing to preserve something they’ve made at the same time. I’m nostalgic like that.
