250 Chickenpants is a lot of Chickenpants (plus, there's a contest!)

On July 9th, 2007 I made a creature that cracked me up. I had no idea he'd crack so many of you up, too. Not to mention become my own personal creative obsession.

A little over two years later, I find that I've made 250 Chickenpants. 250? 250! 250.
This is a really big deal for me. I never thought I would make so many of anything. When I first started making plush, I was also painting. Mostly foxes. I'd never been able to stick with any one subject matter long enough to make a series. I had done literally every art/craft from writing to glass fusing and back again. Nothing stuck, and I thought nothing ever would. Then suddenly, Chickenpants took over my life.
So, without any further ado, let me present to you Herb Chickenpants, Number 250:



(You can say hello to him in the shop, if you're so inclined. ^-^)
So how are we going to celebrate this? The only way the internet knows how...with a contest!
Here's the scoop. Up for the winning is one super cute Chickenpants Baby.

Here's how to do the winning:
1. Comment below! (Make sure I have your email so I can contact you.)

And then, here are some optional ways to secure your place at the top:
2. Twitter about the contest! Link back to the blog...and then comment AGAIN so it counts!
3. Blog about the contest!
4. Join the CP fanpage!
5. Sign up for the mailing list! (top middle of the blog)
6. Post about the contest on Facebook
7. Surprise me!
And for each thing that you do, come back and comment AGAIN so I can tally these up right. The main thing is to link back to the blog, and to let me know that you did it. Creativity will be rewarded! Let's crash some servers, people!

A winner will be chosen next Tuesday, Nov. 24th, and announced here on the blog.


There's so much else I want to share with you. New blog address. New gift certificates. New tiny hats. But this blog post has dragged on long enough.
See you tomorrow!
Remember to follow those insane creative hares...you never know where they might lead!

I should have seen things much sooner. Who knew these cute guys and gals would come from the eggs if I never cooked them. Now I want to put them under a heat lamp and see if they hatch and what pants they would be wearing.A well prepared hatching chicken is a happy chicken :)

Congratulations on 250 Chickenpants! That's a great achievement!

For some reason, when it comes to chickens wearing clothing, I'm sort of reminded of this: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=18880074 :D
