So… tired…

November 1, 2009

Despite the fact that I want to die because I’m so tired, I am very excited for tomorrow when I will get to take my strange little holiday menagerie out for a spin and see how people like the custom pet figurines.

 

I’m hoping to make millions.

 

Actually, I’m just hoping to make a few people excited about getting a totally custom sculpture of their dog in a holiday sweater.

 

Here are the 4 that are going on tour with me tomorrow:

 

Fiona and Loverboy….

Woody… (Or as he would prefer to be called on Halloween: Wonder Woody)

And my sweet dog Petey who is no longer with us but still enjoys his holiday cookies…..

… and who always sat with his arms like that.  We had our suspicions that he was a little… you know…  And we loved him for it.

 

Stop by my etsy site for more details and tell your friends! (poppicakes.etsy.com)

 

No really… do it.  Do it now.

Has this happened to you?

September 8, 2009

My lovely crafty friend Ailis sent me the BEST package I have ever gotten in the mail.  It was a brown paper package tied up with string, Julie Andrews-style.

So I open it up and there is the cutest little cat toy ever inside, crocheted and stuffed with catnip.

I decided that I HAD to make one for her cat, so I searched and searched for juuuust the right pattern to use.  I wanted something cute, sea related (because she sent me a fish shaped toy…I wanted to go with the same theme), with fun danglies.   Jellyfish it is.

Unfortunately, somebody else took a liking to the jellyfish, and before I knew it, it was covered in slobber with half of its face ripped off.

I even put in my purse to keep it safe, but the cats quickly developed opposable thumbs, unzipped my bag, took out the jellyfish, snatched my car keys and 20 bucks and went joyriding through town.

The catnip makes them do very bad things.

Dahahaha!!!!

Those are the shorn buttocks of my poor pathetic cat.

While normally quite fuzzy and adorable…

…he now looks like a tiny grey lion and I swear I can hear the other cats giggling.

Just so this post stays on topic, here are the beginnings of a pillow I’m making:

Also, my ripple is coming along, just 800,000 stitches to go.

And here is a card I am particularly proud of:

I hand cut all the pieces.  The paper is Basic Grey, cut from the front cover of one of their stacks.  See?  I’m thrifty.

Dahahaha!!!  Look at that ridiculous haircut!

Eat. Sleep. Ripple.

Yeah, it’s icanhascheezburger in the background.  I’m one of those.

But look!  Look how big it is!

My cat is also enjoying the process and I am enjoying crocheting with saliva soaked yarn.
