Why Do We Always Collide?

So! I've been away for a lengthy amount of time! Hahaha. Time to change that. So much has happened since I last updated.


I have FINALLY opened up my Etsy Shop. Victor's King Kongery Shop of Enthusiastic Wonderness. It's a bit long winded but I like it! Haha. It's actually been up for more than a month now. I sold my first toy on February 14th, just a friendly little crab. Then exactly a month later I sold two more toys!

Three sales, not bad at all. Haha. Hopefully the rest of my toys start finding new homes, and I manage to keep listing more!

I'm also planning to attend The French Pastry School in Chicago. The next classes start in July though I might decide to postpone that for the December classes, so that I can save up some money and give myself lots more time making toys before beginning that ridiculously hectic Pastry School Schedule.

Check out the school here. Let me know what you think! or start lining up to enjoy the delicious baked goods and candies I will inevitably create.

What else?!

Crammed Organisms - World's Largest Plush Show! Plush, Stuffed Animals, Plushies, Softies

WELL! I've applied to Crammed Organisms! Definitely check that out! Crammed Organisms is a ridiculously massive Plushie toy show that's going to be happening in four different places in June in St Louis, Missouri.

The theme for the show is "Fairy, Folk and Fable." To apply you have to create a proposal with what you're planning to create for the show. At first I was going to apply with some vague general ideas, but i couldn't hit the submit button! It wasn't right. So I sat down and figured out exactly what I wanted to do. I came up with four, hopefully, original and interesting plushie ideas. I submitted like two paragraphs of ideas haha.

I'm hoping my proposal gets me extra points since my plushie gallery isn't particularly expansive. Anyway, so in preparation for my way super sweet ideas for that show I've got designs and started working on more basic versions of those ideas.

I'm working my way up!

Sorry for the lack of pictures in this post, you'll just have to click on one of the many Vickangaroo links to the right to see what toys I've been working on. My DeviantArt is the place best to look out for new stuff.
