Wow! What an amazing group of Lilah Beans!! My army of minions...
The PEOPLE's CHOICE WINNER!
|We are the Champbeans, we are the Cham-bee-ans!|
THE HEAD BEAN's CHOICE AWARD (that's me) goes to Jenny Balson for her "Lilah Beads". These two beads are so tiny and precious and completely capture the true essence of what it means to be a Lilah Bean. And I can wear them! So, cool.
And some more awards...
THE BACHELOR BEAN AWARD goes to "Freddy" the domesticated Bean. What can I say, he wears a fedora, owns his own home, and knows how to sew... multi-dimensional. I'm in love.
THE LATIN LOVER BEAN AWARD goes to "Latin L. Bean" who got quite a number of votes despite his late appearance. Typical Lothario. As you can see below, he is quite the she-Bean magnet. Nice textures. Lovely background. Great hair.
Speaking of hair... THE GREAT HAIR AWARD goes to "Shrinky Bean." Also popular in the polls, Shrinky Bean knows how to work with what she's got. She doesn't need color to highlight her sparkling (actually dull... lets say "matte finish," ok?) personality. What she lacks in depth, she makes up for in densely packed tangles.
The balloon-haired "Boop Bean" wins the IF LILAH BEAN WERE HUMANISH AND LOOKED LIKE A TROLL DOLL AWARD! And snaps for the original up-do. Or is it an afro? Or gumdrops...
THE FASHIONISTA BEAN AWARD goes to "Sally Bean" for her fashionable, yet practical approach to footwear. It is not easy to be this glamorous and happy with shoes that pinch. She won't get far on the runway, but at least she's still standing.
Lastly, we have the HAPPY MINIONS AWARD.
This award goes to the "Hungry Minions" which are a motley crew of Lilah Beans, friends of Beans, ah... snacks for Beans, and some sort of mix of all of the above. Despite their differences, the family resemblance is uncanny and there is a very strong sense of loyalty and trust amongst the ranks. I know this because, in the week they have been camping out in my studio, no one has so much as licked the frosting off that luscious little Cupcake Bean.
Nice work everyone!
The two top award winners will be getting their very own, super fabulous, highly collectible, authentic Zentangle® kits! Yeah! But that's not all, they will also each get a signed copy of my new book, Zentangle for Kidz!
The other winners of the Weird Bean Awards, will be getting some miscellaneous items that are lying around my studio... and, wait for it... a signed copy of my new book, Zentangle for Kidz!
I'll be mailing out your prizes tomorrow.
