Uhh, there's another guy. An ugly one!

Long time, no see: Here comes again a creature of the month, October, I do like it!


One month behind: creature of the month november is this superspooky thingy Vizma sent to me! Thanks a lot to Australia!

Creature of the month October has to be something halloweenesque - even if we don't have this in Germany. How do you like this Wannabe-Cowboy?

Oh nooo, I missed the creature of the month August!! Not good!! Here's my September favorite, which Arac sent today. What is this?? 

July, unbelievable hot in Heidelberg, so this sneaky little alligator gets his chance to be the creature of the month July!

Another month, another creature! Creature of the month June is this disturbing dino. What on earth is this guy looking for? Without clothes? No wonder they became extinct!!

Creature time again! This dreamy bird is my creature of the month May, I've sent it out today. Hope you like!

Sooo, new month, new creatures! Look at these guys, creatures of the month April:


Creature time! I already forgot about it, here's my creature of the month March, don't ask for its name, xoxo

So these two tired hairy creatures, presumably baby and dad, are going to be the creatures of the month February. I hope you like them, I've sent them out today... Cute pyjamas sure get you a headstart with the jury...

Uh oh, I nearly failed to elect a creature of the month January! But today a bunch of funny little things arrived here, so I'm able to present you this indescribable poor creature from John Bennett as the winner in January:

Obviously there is a problem with his eye, poor thing. Thank you, John!

Of course, would cuteness be the only criterion it would have been a hard competition: 

I love his pajama!


Here is a very promising candidate for the contest. In fact, I think this aggressive little aye-aye, who obviously is driving taxi in his spare time, should be the "creature of the month december". Congratulations!


It's a very sunny and very silly sunday, so I just started a new project: I'll choose (and send) a "Creature of the month" for the next 12 months. May I introduce you to the charming zebra which happened to be the creature of the month November?

DK and anyone else who hasn't eaten Spam should grab some soon so you can say you have. After all, it's probably the reason crappola in your cyberspace inboxes is called spam. We had Spam at least once a week when I was growing up, and Fishsticks was another. I didn't find out what real food is until about age 26.

Great creature Svenja! And I'm going to buy SPAM tomorrow.

I haven't Nance, but isn't it considered a delicacy somewhere in the world? they should come out with veggie spam for Erni and me.

Svenja, I first did not recognize you! I mean, your profile picture, not the creature of the month.

Diane, have you ever eaten Spam as the main course for a meal?

Comment by DKULT on February 26, 2012 at 3:53pm

Love this Svenja! I've definately felt like that monkey before. Saw a candle last night that is made inside a spam container. The wax is colored to look like spam, but it doesn't smell like it. If it did that would be a cool idea I think.

Svenja, I do not believe The Creature of the Month Club needs to promise prizes in order to have many members. I do hope you continue to update us on the latest creatures.

Ray Johnson, the artist who pretty much invented mail-art, started all kinds of different clubs, among them The Spam Radio Club and The Blue Eyes Club. So you are keeping the original tradition going. I love it!

Thank you for stopping by, DVS!!

DKoder-Ring - haven't you heard what happened? Cereal accident! 

Comment by De Villo Sloan on January 29, 2012 at 10:10pm

Svenja, I am a huge fan of the Creature of the Month Club! Great! No D-koder ring?

Comment by Svenja Wahl on January 29, 2012 at 10:40am

No, it's part of a bigger picture, I'm terrible behind with blogging ... :-(

He's walking asemically too!
