Take THAT high tuition!

About 5 years ago I was looking around for a fun flash drive to get my brother-in-law for his upcoming graduation. At the time they just couldn't be found. That is when Animal Flash Drives popped into my head. I am a very ambitious little thing so I decided to make one and try to sell it.

And BOOM! A real person bought it!

So I got things in order and set up shop. I was in graduate school at the time so it was a great way to be creative and "get away" from homework for a while. I've had a lot of fun engineering my making process using some pretty unconventional methods.... For example, sometimes using shadows instead of the actual light helps get precise leveling. And with help from my father-in-law (Thanks Eddie!) we have created a unique cutting platform and mold which allows me to cut, grind and alter each animal with incredible speed.

I have a professional relationship with my figure manufacturer. They make some of the best figures in the world. Just as a seamstress uses fabric as their raw materials, I use these animal replicas as my raw material.

I remember being amazed when I hit 20 sales .... never did I fathom that. Now I've conquered nearly 2,000!

All made by hand. All made by Hemingwayfun.

So I have a great idea: Be You.


P.S. I've since completed graduate school and Hemingwayfun profits ended up paying for most of my tuition. WOW! Take THAT high tuition!!!

I enjoy creating FUN things, and I am excited to be sharing my USB's!

AND I think they are the coolest things on the block! Definitely an eye catcher when you whip a platypus flash drive out of your pocket. ;)

I'm a graduate student working on my Master's in Mathematics. I play chess everyday, and I have two drop-dead gorgeous little boyz that take most of my "free" time and love to be LOUD!

So I'm a Hemingway, and I made this cool stuff on here. (;
