I've thought of a childhood hero... who definitely isn't anymore. But I may come up with something anyway, for nostalgia's sake.
... the first thing that came to mind when I read this was Michael Jackson.

But as for mine.. hm.. I guess there was Reepicheep (the mouse warrior from the Narnia books). But that would be tricky to make something of... hm.. or Fred Penner (I thought Mr Rogers was a geek. Wink Not sure if Fred Penner was only in Canada though!)

Fred Penner was totally my hero too!

i got to meet him, and see his set.... it was so exciting!!!

I'm really thinking Jim Henson. As a kid I loved the Muppets and Seaseme Street and tried to do a report where I had to pretend to be him...My teacher nixed that idea saying I was a girl so I had to play a girl, despite no women being my hero. But he was a cool dude. He made something like puppets be fun and new and fresh without going down any weird creepy way. And sure they were meant for kids, but a lot of stuff was funny for grown ups. Plus if I make something for my handy-dandy nurse's pack it will remind me each time I pull out my notebook or something to be kind to my pts, but allow myself to laugh.

A Reepicheep stuffy?? I'd like me one of them.

Hm.. You know, that could be a neat idea! With the armour and everything..... I'll look into it Wink

Yay! I'm glad I'm not the only one! I met him too, when he was on tour!

I already decided on mine. But it will require a lot of writing to let all other craftsters know what it actually is about... because you probably have no chance of knowing a certain Czech book. Cheesy

 Cheesy  No... I liked MJ's music but he was never a hero. When I was about 3-4, I was obsessed with Boy George! My mom's pretty sure I thought he was a girl. Tongue Grin

And I've gone and thought of someone else! Now to decide...

I'm glad to know that I wasn't the only one who was thinking it might be too corny to have my mom as my hero.  I  kept thinking I'd need to come up with someone else, but maybe now I will 'craftify' her in all her glorious coolness.

I'm think I'll try this challenge, but I have no idea how to craftify my hero, especially since my main craft is jewelry... This is going to take a bit of thinking.  Cheesy

yep, if I did a 5th in my series, it would totally be Jim Henson. Wink

My high school art teacher was totally Bob Ross' wife.  Just wanted to throw that in there.  She was awesome--long silver hair, artsy clothes, and constantly somewhere in orbit (or among the happy trees; I dunno, but she wasn't 'present,' wherever she was....)
