Munny part 1

The obsession has started! Munny's are adorable toys from an American company called Kidrobot. They are blank figures you can decorate using pens, pencils, markers, paint, and other supplies or leave them as they are! A Munny doll is made out of vinyl and has movable joints. They come with 1 random accessory such as a carrot or a hat. Mine came with a phone :) They also come in a variety of sizes, I got a mini munny! The hardest part of the whole experience was deciding how to decorate it! There are so many possibilities that it took me longer to choose than to actually do. My one recommendation is to sketch out your ideas before tackling the actual doll. I think I did about 8 sketches before starting!

He is the one and only, Dwight Schrute! I'm not quite happy with his glasses, but this was my first attempt! I can't wait to get another one, looks like I'll be making a stop to Lost Marbles this week! If you have any questions about my munny please leave me a comment. Happy crafting folks!
