These are the first of Ellen's soon to be many after work creations. About a week ago she purchased a book, "Stupid Sock Creatures," and has been at work almost every night since. These guys are made from only socks and stuffing with buttons for eyes. As a result of this new hobby I have been shopping for buttons for the first time in my life. I'm sure there are many more of these trips to come. They don't officially have names but I call them (left to right): Philip the Hyper-Hypo, the Noid, and Beetlejuice. Ellen enjoys making them and I naturally support her, just so long as they don't get wet or eat anything after midnight.
