Hello fine and creative members of our humble Popkes family!
I know it has been a while for me to update this journalsection but I have been through some stuff that has prevented me from putting time in the Popkes group. I am back now and I felt like updating this journalpage again with a brand new journal.
I would like to begin with welcoming all those who have joined us in the past few months:
Thanks for everyone who has joined! I see you come from all around the world, U.S. Europe, South-America, Asia... really wow!
I wish you all a happy stay with us and hopefully we will be able to inspire each other
Second I was wondering what is your best creation? Which one of your creations is one that you're really proud of and would you like to share with all of us? I am setting up a folder so you can upload your best creation in there. I would like to hear the story behind it so maybe you can tell us For me I am proud of my Madhatter Popke of the movie Alice in Wonderland. I had never made such a large Popke with so many details....
I made it since I loved this character a lot, Johnny Depp plays him extremly well and I loved his colourful detailed costume.
I had fun making this Popke even though sometimes I grew tired because even the socks had details! @.@!
It now sits on my bookshelf next to the actionfigure of the Madhatter and I might want to make more Alice in Wonderland Popkes later on. I am currently working on making more of the tvshow Legend of the Seeker which is based on my favourite bookserie "Sword of Truth" by Terry Goodkind.
So how are you spending your summer holidays, or if its not summer but winter, please tell us how you spend your days.
For the new members, I'd like to ask you to upload a photo of yourself in our folder "Meet the Crafters" it's nice to see who we are dealing with. And get to know each other too.
I know it has been a while but how about we think of another contest? Is there anyone with ideas? Who would like to be the judge and help us with selecting the best creations? Holding up a contest requires input from everyone not just me, so I am willing to put up a brand new contest with the help of my lovely Popke members
That will be all for now
Love from the Popkefamily!
