Shopping List

I left my hastily scribbled shopping list lying around the house the other day. Other people always find my lists weird, probably because without the use that links them all it just seems like a bunch of unrelated items.

Admittedly, I usually add human organs to the bottom just to freak people out, but whatever. I do actually need human organs this time. I need them half-size, and I'll probably end up making them, so it's more a reminder to get the things to make them than anything.

The reason for the rest of the items is I need them so I can finish making the invitations I'm working on. What can I say, I really like making invitations that nobody else has.

I'm never sure of when to send out invites. Personally I think three to four weeks is a good time frame, but most people I know leave it to the week before, which really bugs me. If I get these finished this weekend it should be about three and a half weeks, which appeals to my need to have everything perfect.

These Shoes Are Made For Ripping Apart And Then Poorly Fixing With A Glue Gun And Scrap Fabric

And that's just what they'll do! Very lame title I know, you'll have to excuse me, it's the end of the holidays, I'll start using my brain again tomorrow. Oh and I apologise for the poor quality of the next two photos, the auto focus kept getting distracted by my shiny blankets.

I love these shoes, but they keep dying on me. I don't go on long walks. I don't jump in puddles (not in these shoes, anyway). I don't kill people with them (again, not these shoes). They just wear out around the seams and the heels really fast for me. And then you can see my socks.

So I decided, hey, I've got a bunch of this red fabric and a glue gun, why not line my shoes with red fabric so it looks like my shoes are full of blood from a distance? Brilliant idea! Well it was until I managed to burn myself with the glue gun. They look pretty cool though.

I am, obviously, the best friend ever. Okay, not really. But to make up for what I lack, I make awesome birthday cards. And yes, I'm rather full of myself at the moment, but mostly I'm just happy that my idea worked.

I'd never used ink before, and I was fairly sure that the whole thing would fall apart the minute I tried to cut out the oval. But it didn't. And now I've got an idea for the artwork I have to do as part of my 'education'. Bonus.

The inside of the card is yellow, and there's an identical bat on the other side, so you can properly see his wings.

Say Hello To My Little Friends

Pumpkins! Pumpkins for all! While they're not your stereotypical big orange pumpkin, I still want to make copies of these. No particular use in mind yet, but there will be.

Now everyone else thinks I'm crazy for this (and other things) but I think the second one has a face.

I call him Kingsley.
