The Peepiest thing I made today!

A local newspaper runs a contest where one can submit a diorama made of Peeps (or the bunnies, which are not really Peeps in my book, just a Peep subsidiary!) for review and prizes! the Washington Post started having the contest last year too.

My friend Sky and I have made an entry every year except last year (because I was getting married, I know: LAME!).

I am not linking to the newspaper because they have continually lost or not published our entries. I don't read that paper, I just enter their Peep contest hoping against hope for attention to our art and our freedom of expression.

Here is the entry I submitted for this year, The HandPeep's Tale:

In this scene we find OfPeep heading towards a checkpoint with her shopping partner OfJustBorn. They are passing one the Wives tending to some flowers. Two Guardians of the Faith await them at the checkpoint.

Much thanks to Margaret Atwood and my awesome bookclub! Woot!

Here are our past entries:

Mount Choice-No-More: In recognition of South Dakota banning a woman's right to choose:

A nice Peep wedding:

And this was to Honor our then upcoming trip to Washington DC for the March for Women's Lives:

I didn't know peeps could be a venue to political voice. Way to go Peeps!! I always hated peeps, that is until now. Now I know they support my progressive causes and I'll buy them more often.
Love the Handmaid's Tale entry.

You may not believe this but I was at my daughter's school conferences last night and on display by another class was "literary interpretations through peeps!". I saw lots of Harry Peepter and Star Peeps.
