I have been totally cracking up at the favorable attention this project got on some of the big blogs this morning (BoingBoing and Craftzine!? What the hay? I'm not cool enough for that kind of attention. Whatever.) The project was a blast to do, and I'm glad some other people get my sick, dorky sense of humor. You can read the full story on the project on my blog here:

I saw that this morning on Craftzine and laughed my head off.  You did a wonderful job on transforming her.

Human rights are for EVERYONE.  Did you know that Aung San Suu Kyi had been released from house arrest in Burma? Many other prisoners of conscience are still being detained.  Please research this topic... Amnesty International needs your help.

Currently taking a hiatus from swapping.  Sad

If it had grown up, it would have made a dreadfully ugly child; but it makes rather a handsome pig, I think.
