Team Coco, and the super spectacular feature they had today about Coco Fan Art! They picked eleven favorites (and have you seen the Flickr group? That must have been HARD to choose!). So anyways, to make a long story even longer, they chose my Conan blimp in their sweet lineup! Here's what they said:
Awesome Team Coco fans are not just into 2D works of art - they're also into art you can hold in your hands! The lovely and talented Allison Hoffman crocheted this orange blimp... Much to Conan's delight! (http://craftyiscool.blogspot.com/)
Can you see Aaron Bleyart and me have a mutual admiration for the word "awesome"? I think he and Conan are both awesome too! Conan art is awesome! Fan art in general is pretty awesome too, don't you think?? Somebody get me on a plane to LA! Seriously!!
In other, ahem, awesome news, I made some really cool custom orders for Christmas this year! I love when people give me their hot ideas. It makes my job much easier!
Lalaloopsy dolls that were a hot toy this season. The mother who ordered them wanted their girls to have a more "lovey" version that wouldn't jab them in the eyeballs or leave scary indentations on their faces while they slept. So of course, a crocheted version fit that bill! They were both pretty big, used a ton of yarn, and they each had their own little crocheted clothes and pets!
