So how many gawkers are you getting from this? I'm pretty sure if I lived in your area I'd be standing by that garden in awe pretty frequently.

You were amazingly dedicated to this idea (I can understand, though; CandyLand is awesome!) This is magnificent. I grant you the bestest job ever award.

I wanted to recap on a couple questions asked:

When will I be done...  :   I fear never.
  I'd said I had a three to five year plan. We're well into year one now so expect more changes!

Do I have many gawkers...  : Not yet, you can be the first, come to Seattle then head north to the foothills of the Cascades. I'll buy you a coke.

Life-size game play...  : Bring it!
I'm in! The kids I work with even made Halloween costumes last October, they'd need some modifications but that's on the list of things to do in the next three to five years.

Is there a way to grow candy on the trees...  : I can't think of one? Can you? I am doing moss testing trials to try to figure out how to make everything look green, cut down on weeds, and not have to mow or edge. So far Irish Moss is my favorite. I've tried Scottish too and New Zealand scrub and serveral varieties of thyme. I spray milk on the moss to make it grow, <pathetic girl face emoticon>.

Lastly (and sorry if I forgot any questions)...  : Did you know Universal Pictures wants to make a movie of CandyLand? It's supposed to be released next year. I don't know much but they have hired the guy who wrote Tropic Thunder to write the screen play and the fella who directed Enchanted with Amy Adams to direct it. In my mind, I've cast it. What do you think of these actors:  Peppermint: Jeff Goldblum; Grandma Nutty: Bette Midler; Lord Licorice: John Travolta (or and my fav: Stephen Colbert); Lolly: Zooy Deschanel; Princess Frostline: Mariska Hagerty; Gingerbread: Edward Norton (or Billy Bob Thorton); Gloppy: Tina Fey (no offence I just love her work and think she could make it a big role); Jolly: Kathy Bates; King Kandy: Frank Caliendo; and then theres the gardens Ive added on my own: Flame: Bill Murray; Lemon: Steve Martin; Hearts: Jerry Seinfeld; CandyCorn: Cher; Prehistoric: Christopher Lloyd. Any other ideas?

Okay so once again I am completely redoing my pictures. Got tired of photobucket, the only reason I used it was for here so I decided I will just use Craftster's photo uploader. So while I am switching over my photo links will be broken. Message me if there is a post you would like the pics for.
