Lex's bunny and Reddit

A few weeks ago, I received an e-mail that my Child's Own Studio website had reached its bandwidth limit. Someone had posted www.childsown.com on reddit.com. I contacted my host server who looked into it, and we weren't sure if the traffic was due to the reddit effect or if someone or something had (mis)used my site as a portal. Anyway, my web host increased my bandwidth and my site was back up and running.

A customer who found me on reddit, sent me a drawing by his five year old daughter, Lex.




Along with the drawing, he sent a simple request. That the soft toy be her most beautiful creation, with eyes filled with peace, and that it would help encourage her to keep using her imagination and creativity. So, I did what I could!





Then he posted the bunny on reddit.com and I got another e-mail saying that my website's bandwidth limit was reached.

oh well...

I love these creations -- they're like stepping into a child's imagination. I'm really glad I found your site. Sorry Reddit crashed it!

I'm sorry too (that it crashed), but it's also nice to know that it's getting lots of attention. I hope people can wait a few days to visit the site.

This one is particularly sweet looking to me! although, I love all of them really. Crashing site is a pretty nice problem to have, but sure it was annoying. I, too am glad I found your site. Fabulous idea and the execution looks terrific!!!

I love all these creations, it's amazing what you do with the children's drawings. I want to do one too. This bunny is especially beautiful-I want one too.

So sweet! A friend sent me the link to your site and he's always on reddit so I'm sure that's how he came across it. I love your work!
