At 7 you start to matter. You’re no longer a baby, you’ve started school, you’re making friends, you’re making your own choices, and if you’re Mozart, you’ve composed a symphony or two.
And so it is with Redbubble. On February 2, 2007, RB took its first orders. A few months later we hired Mr. Baxter in one of his many roles. For those unfamiliar, Mr. Baxter has been hanging about RB offices since he started assuming various titles including: “Chief Officer of Giving You Good News,” “Assistant Deputy Director of Parcel Tapes,” “Executive Sender of Emails and Chief Pencil Sharpener,” and much more. What’s the phrase, Jack of all trades master of none? He’s an RB institution and whether he’s been promoted or shunted between supervisors is not clear.

To celebrate our birthday, we’re giving away 7 handmade Mr. Baxter dolls made by the very talented Lily McDonnell to subscribers to the Blog. Rumour is, Mr. Baxter took a few weeks sick leave to help Lily stitch these together.
