Mia Mäkilä knows how to make me happy:

Hi Suzanne!

I think you're gonna love my latest project! It's called "Creeplings" and it's an art collaboration with American artist Gus Fink.

Check it out:


Of course I love the project, Mia! Chapeau to you and Gus for building this eerie army of creepy.. errm.. creeplings.

NOTE TO READERS: These adorable, huggable little creeplings are all for sale!
