Ta da!  This is a diorama I made for my local paper's Peep diorama contest.  It's actually going to be displayed at the Artomatic arts festival in DC, which will be my first public showing of a craft/art project!  It's made out of lots of cardboard, clay (including the coffin) and of course, PEEPS!  I did all the hieroglyphics and such by hand.  The scene is a bunch of archaeologist Peeps stumbling upon an ancient tomb of a lost Peep civilization.  The torches are Christmas lights covered in tissue paper.  I didn't hear about the contest until the Friday night before the Sunday deadline, so I worked really intensely on it, haha!  I hope you enjoy!

I love Peeps.

Thanks!  Actually, when they interviewed me, I DID put in a plug for Craftster!  But I don't think they wrote it up anywhere.  Craftster is by far the best inspiration I've found anywhere.  <3

Wow! Congrats! I saw this on the Sunday Morning Show on CBS.

I, too, wondered (and hoped, heh) that it was a fellow Craftster!

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.
