About

The Day a Fox Changed My LIfe.

Once upon a time, I was lost in a deep, dark forest of creative block. Every turn lead deeper into the forest. I felt I would never return to my life where making things made me feel complete. Everything I made failed and laid at my feet. As I toiled, a gallant prince arrived. He had hair the color of a wheat penny and a smile that matched the sun. He pointed to a fox off in the distance (right outside my office window, to be clear) and said, "why not make a fox, sweet one?"

...and so I did.

After that came a walrus, a giraffe, an amoeba. The dark forest started to fill with animals made from my own hands. Pretty soon, I looked up and there I was standing in the sun; holding a pair of scissors in one hand and the hand of my prince in the other.

Now I travel this grand world with my forest of animals in tow. Selling happy little animals to nice people. People like you!

    Hi! I'm Laura and I make stuffed animals for a living. It's exciting and hectic and freeing. All of my designs come from the strange world in my head. I hand sew them in a little house in Southern Indiana.
