The US Government and the State of Plush

Please see this link and this link regarding how the United States Government is planning to protect children from toys.

Not to say I don't agree with protecting children from mass-produced, plastic, singing/dancing/mind numbing monstrosities called "toys," but these plans will effect all toys on the market including the ones that I and many other talented artists create.

If you have the time please sign this petition or better yet contact your representative and senator.

Awww SLC Studios is the best!

Over at the Plush team, we had a plush gift exchange and then were challenged to write up a story for the items we received. SLC Studios made the abso-most cutest little comic with the gifts I sent her.

Click here to see it!

I'm working on Mr. Moons to get a new tree for the holidays. I want something bigger than 3 feet to show off my super awesome ornaments. Expect more Plush Team posts as soon as I can get a sunny day to photograph. :)

6 Random Things

The wonderful Chicken Pants creator, Absolutely Small, tagged me to list 6 random things about me. Since I'm slightly ahead of my work schedule, I'm going to fill these out.

1. I'm not done holiday crafting at all. :( Next year, I'm going to start in September! Ugh the stress. The stress!

2. I'm a big time World or Warcraft nerd. I'd play it more, but I'm always a slave to my Moon Bun masters. My main is a Blood Elf Warlock. For the Horde!

3. I collect holiday music cd's. My favorite is A Christmas Together by John Denver and the Muppets.

4. I majored in Creative Writing and specialized in writing scripts for comic books. Sadly, the only thing I've had published is pornography. (No! I'm not telling you what it was, you'll just have to do some super sleuthing.) I'd love to have my children's comics published one day.

5. I hate taking photos. I'm the most un-photogenic person on the planet, so you will likely never see a photo of me, ever. I just don't take them.

6. I think laundry is the most tedious chore of all. There's so much waiting for things to get done. I'd prefer to scrub things anything to keep moving, but with laundry, patience is a must.

And now for the rules:

1. Link to the person who tagged you.
2. Post the rules on your blog.
3. Write six random things about yourself.
4. Tag six people at the end of your post and link to them.
5. Let each person know they have been tagged and leave a comment on their blog.
6. Let the tagger know when your entry is up.

Tagging ... er... um... I don't really know of any other bloggers. :(
