Virtual Book Tour Wrap Up & Giveaway

Wow. It's been a great ride and an even better adventure visiting fellow Plush Teamers' blogs and learning about their contributions to the team annual, Get Stuffed! As we arrive back here on the team blog, I can't help but to revisit the past few weeks and think about some of the great tutorials, inspirations, and works that were shared along the way!

The tour kicked off with a visit to Fluffy Flowers's little web garden for a look at her creative process and a step-by-step tutorial to make a plush mermaid doll and studio apartment.

Next, was a visit with Yummy Pancake, where we learned about some of the inspirations for her wacky, food-related amigurumi creations.

In week two, we visited Fur Will Fly in the UK and hung out with her 365 Scientist while working through her creative process to make a plush red blood cell.

We then picked up and headed to the studio of Plush Goodness, where this illustrator-turned-plush-maker showed us her sketch book and how her ideas go from paper-to-plush.

Week three started out with the amazing DogDaemona and some crazy hijinx with her plush creations Rusty and Playboy. You'd be surprised what trouble a cute pair of foxes can get into!

We went from foxes to Moon Buns in the blink of an eye with a visit to Moon's Creations blog. In her post, Moon shares how seeing the work of other plush artists in the book inspire some of her own creations!

Our last tour stop left us with The Raggy Rat, who showed us some of her favorite pieces and shared why she chose them to represent her work in the annual.

I don't know about you, but I can't think of a better way to spend the month of August than visiting with these amazing plush makers. And, for those of you who have been following along, we have a special chance to win a plush prize pack!

Several plush makers have donated pieces to the prize pack and there are some AWESOME goodies to win! Of course, I won't say exactly what's in it just yet, because first you have to prove you're worthy by correctly answering the questions on our short quiz!

Click here to get started, and Good Luck!

Oh, and P.S. The last day to enter the giveaway is  9/3/2010. The winner will be announced on 9/4!
