DuffyDaisuki, your post are really a breath of fresh air! I really enjoy reading your posts and am always excited to hear what you have to say about Duffy! The same goes to all the Duffy fans out there! Today I received my Shellie May straight from Japan! It was such a relief on me since it took a lot longer than expected to arrive! But now that she's here, I've fallen in love and know now even more why I love this bear and will continue to invest in him! I don't know what it is, but Duffy and May really just bring me joy! They are just so cute and their cute innocent stares and smiles just make me remember childlike I really am in my heart! And they also motivate me further to get closer to making the trip to Japan! They have also reignited my the creative part of my brain! I was in a huge creative slump until I got Duffy! I know it sounds cheesy, but having him really motivates me to be creative! I'm starting to sew again and buying patterns to make costumes for the lovable Teddy Bears(I just got to fix my pesky sewing machine!)! I've even set out a space in my room where I will have them on Display and create new display to match the outfits and theme/season! I don't know what it is, but just seeing the level of craftsmanship on the Bear merchandise, which is BEYOND anything we sell stateside, just makes me want to aim for that level of detail! I mean we're talking about a bear! A stuffed plaything, and the outfits are supreme quality! It's almost absurd! But that is why I love Duffy! He brings so much Joy and creativity to me! And I'm surprised my BF hasn't killed me with all this cutesy stuff I'm getting into! He's playing along with it too and likes it as well!
Well anyways, I just wanted to say why I love Duffy and why he's found his way into my heart! And DuffyDaisuki, if my contact stops being reliable, I would definitely love to be apart of your fanclub!!
Here's a pic of my current Duffy Display! I've just started but it will get better in time!(And by Xmas, they'll both have their Xmas outfits to fit the theme!
