The OFFBITS–A Delightful Kickstarter Campaign

I get excited about some Kickstarter campaigns, and am sort of a Kickstarter junkie, but this one is something really special. Check them out for yourself, because I really can’t do them justice myself.

Bastian Badger’s Flower Fashion Show

I think it’s time for a little levity, thanks to my new stuffed buddy Bastian Badger and simplyserra from Etsy’s grab bag of flowers, meant for another purpose, but for this one, to entertain my three-year-old niece. It was a lot of fun, even over messaging. We have identical stuffed badgers, thanks to my indulgent sister–who indulged me, not the other way around; that is, indulging her daughter–the original badger, whose name is, I believe, Badger, I first saw when I was asked to identify the animal in a picture. That’s me. The animal identifier and Auntie Instigator (this took place while my niece was supposed to be taking a nap. The flower show, that is.) I know my critters. I fell in love and said I wanted one. I was surprised to receive an identical one for my birthday. We won’t go into the fact that I’m now 43 years older than my niece–you can’t help who you fall into an infatuation with.

When I received the flowers from simplyserra, one of them looked just perfect on him (it was the perfect size and color–I had to try it on him):

I texted this picture to my sister as I thought it made Bastian look quite dapper, and when she showed the picture to my niece, she thought it was adorable and immediately wanted one for her badger, Badger.

A couple of days later, I had the flowers out again, and a flurry of other photos followed. Thus, the Bastion Badger Flower Fashion Show:
