Ever Been in a Bad Mood? These adorable soft crafted dolls will cheer you up
How can anyone be in a bad mood once they take a look at this adorable guy? He's just part of a series of plush dolls made by a French plush doll maker. You can find the Bad Mood Monster Series of dolls at Hibou Cards at http://www.etsy.com/listing/68711788/monster-plush-bad-mood-monster-series.
Hibou is run by French emigrant Annie-Claire Regan who now lives in Boston. She talks about her inspiration from her childhood in France:
"I love to use old materials or recycle things I have at home (all sorts of papers and fabrics, clothes...). My grandma's closets back in France in particular are full of treasures that I use in my designs. I am inspired by the world around me. New England's dramatic season changes, my art books, music and for a big part by my son's imagination, books and pretend games. My own French culture is also an endless source of creativity :) Today I'm also a happy plush maker! Creating truly makes me happy and I put all my passion in each design I create and make. I hope you will enjoy my work!"
And how could anyone not love her work? Her entire Etsy shop is filled with colorful creations that bring delight. Stop on over at her Etsy shop and cheer her on. Say you found her here on Clara's Closet's Blog.
