Yes I spent a ridiculous amount of hours, glue, paint, (raided a friends sons stash of old plastic miniature guns and knives thankyouConor!), spent hours at Target finding the perfect Shoe near the Barbie accessory area in the toy department(good grief!), smashed up perfectly good miniature Irish novelty plastic liquor bottles and basically just had a helluva peep'n good time. (i must say those Peeps are a funky mess when pulled, melted, and generally messed with- though sawing and cutting the limbs was a wee bit fun :D)
I even held my own Peeptest here on my blog to guess the theme of my Peep Diorama by answering 5 questions. Nina, of BeadsintheBelfry from Etsy won, and a few days later received a non-Peep, nor edible, nor glued in any way, Petite Spinner ring from my shop. It was such a hoot to have her play along, because she was sneaky and took no prisoners!
I have not heard back from anyone at the Washington Post regarding the status of my entry, and I do believe my Peeps will succumb to ants (we recently discovered itty bitty ants in the house). They might grow mold? <---I'm not sure if that's possible. If the humidity starts up they might begin to wilt a bit. I have the diorama stored on a high shelf in my smithing studio, where I often open windows while working on my rings and other shiny things...so...in all my peepsimism I believe the odds are not in my Peeps favor for a win or honorable mention.
(oh and hubby said he thinks the thing might be "too bloody" for the contest, I say bah-humbug, we artists SUFFER for our work muwhahahhahaaa...)
With all that said, I'll dare to share with you
Operation Kino (Operation Peepno)
another sick view :P
