You might remember the post I did before Christmas about the Baby Groot.
He proved to be quite the popular little fellow when I put him up on my Facebook page, and I had requests to make more and sell them in my Etsy store.
Unfortunately, licensing issues occur and all that legal fiddle-faddle, so that's never going to happen.
I did, however, make a second one for a friend of the Panda's up in Ohio:
A surprise for his wife, so I haven't posted it on Facebook.
And although I'm not ready to release all the details, I made a third Groot who is now somewhere in Canada:
I added a few extra rounds this time, as an experiment.
I can totally give Baby Groot out as a gift, and nobody's the wiser. Plus, if I include them as bonuses in shipments I do, I can simply say, "They're unsellable due to copyright issues. It's a gift; enjoy!"
I've cleaned up a few other projects in my Ravelry list, and had the pleasure of going back to working on Guude last week. I hope to do more of that tonight before LotRO with DSCA and Deevius!
The to-do list:
1) Guude plushie
2) VintageBeef plushie
4) Purple & black scarf
5) Minecraft Cake Pillow (v2.0!)
...and then all of the new Facebook Art Trades for 2015! I'm really looking forward to them!
