New Member Introduction




Hello Everyone!!!!
It's been a great pleasure to be a part of the team for the past couple of months and I'm really honored to be the person who's going to introduce new members to our wonderful group. Every single one of you guys is amazingly talented and has great personality. We all know that it is a tough, but still beautiful world out there, and we remain focused and determined in our love for plushies. It is a wonderful thing to share it with others, to comment on it, to get advises, and a little pad on the back.
As a start to the New Member Section I would like to introduce myself in a few words. My name is Kasia, and I make plushies called ThePixels. Professionally I am a graphic designer working 9-6 (uff gets tough sometimes). But by choice I'm just a creative person. My love for plushies started from very early age. I would always watch my mom create beautiful dresses and I would use the scraps from them to create my own little things. Back then there was not too many toys available for kids in my country, so you would make your own. I started this particular line of toys (ThePixels) one day when I was making a gift for my boyfriend (he is an amazing designer and journalist). It was a big light and dark blue squared pillow with square eyes and mouth, one ear, and one arm (I did all by hand, so I could not finish it the right way, and left it like that). It was suppose to relate to computers. It was square in all the form, so it looked like pixels from the computer screen. That's how the name came to exist, ThePixels. I named this big blue guy simply Pixel, and he is still with us, he is the father of all ThePixels. But there is more to the whole story and now ThePixels claim that they come from a very far away planet called Pixelvania. About that I'll write another time....

I hope you all enjoyed the "small" introduction to the land of ThePixels and soon there will be more about you....
