A Couple New Critters

Yesterday I was pretty productive! I got 2 new soul suckers in my shop! Yay!

This first gal is a custom order for a victorian inspired soul sucker (so she's reserved).

She has vintage lace and some steampunk charm!

And this fellow is Otis. He's kind of a metrosexual soul sucker. Um, yeah.

Like all my soul suckers, they both have real fur tails. My victorian gal has a red fox tail while Otis sports a coyote tail.

Hooray for new stuff!

My poor, empty little shop . . .

Oy! Now that Christmas is over, I really need to focus on getting inventory in my shop. Like, A LOT! I only have 4 critters left! Crazy thing is, everytime I put something new in, it sells. Not that that's a bad thing, but you always see people suggesting that you have at least 50-100 items in your shop to fuel sales. There's no way I can do that! I'm lucky to get 10 items in!

But fear not! I will be adding new items. Zombies, soul suckers, rats, and maybe even a few new surprises ;)

And a pic of my adorable son. One of the reasons I don't get a ton of sewing done!!

A Bear for my Mom

My mom collects bears, so I figured I'd make her a bear for Christmas. His name is Jacob, and he is five-way cotter pin jointed.

He's made from very soft faux fur, and sits 10 inches tall.

He took forever to make (well, 9 hours). So I certainly hope my mom likes him!!!

Ahhhhhh, Christmas

With Christmas just around the corner, I thought I'd share some wonderful Etsy finds - just in time for the festivities!!

First up is this crocheted nose warmer by auntmartymadeit. No more frozen boogers!

A tentacle stocking from creeplings! Cephalopods for Christmas are awesome!

Not really Christmasy, but freaking awesome! Shark hat by ObeyMyBrain!

So what do I do, you ask? Um, I get on freaking facebook and play Farmville and Zoo World. Yeah seriously.
Stupid zoo is sucking away my life force! Animals . . .too . . .cute . . .must . . .not . . .give in.

Feature Friday - tinaseamonster

Happy Friday! So, it's pretty obvious I like zombies. Wait - what? Zombies? Noooooooo . . .

So anyway, today's Feature Friday shop is tinaseamonster! She has a smorgousboard of zombie goodies!

Zombies are scarier than Santa's lap! I love it! The perfect holiday card!

Zombies ARE crap at knitting! This duct tape wallet is the bomb!

Why yes, yes this IS Obama punching a zombie in the face. What? That doesn't seem normal to you?

Need more zombies? Check out tinaseamonster!

See this? ----------------------------->

This is my icky dog Zan. She was up last night having a barf-fest. For like an hour.



In the bedroom, the livingroom . . . . .


Lucky for her I love her. 'Cause me and barf don't get along very well.

Jus' sayin'.

I made a chicken!

I sure did!

An angry fighting chicken!! A custom order for fellow owlie Holly. He was very fun to make! And I didn't make a prototype (which I usually do when drafting a new pattern!).

He's got quite a fluffy butt!

Happy Saturday!

Have a happy Saturday! I know I will!

Feature Friday - Glamtastik

Today's featured shop is Glamtastik! I've always had a fondness for burlesque. I don't know why. And I've always wanted a corset or full burlesque outfit. So when I stumbled on Glamtastik, I about peed myself!

I covet this. I need this. You don't even know! I drool a little everytime I see it.

And the black . . . .just divine!

Oh the fun I could have in these!
I want everything in her shop. Seriously. If I could, I'd buy them all up!

An Adorable Zombie Bear

Well, I did it! I made a fantabulous zombie bear!!!!! Oh yeah! I'm quite happy with how he turned out.

Ack! He's so cute! Look at his blood soaked lips! Look at his boney arm!!

He's five-way cotter pin jointed, so his head, arms, and legs can move a full 360 degrees! His feet are weighted for extra stability, and he's able to stand and sit all by himself! What a talented zombie!

He's the first of many, as I'm addicted to bear making now!!

Confessions of a Coffee Crazed Nurse

Yesterday at work it was quite busy. Especially for a Sunday. Lots of babies born and doing wonderfully. However, we did have a baby die yesterday. Which is certainly not easy and puts a somber mood throughout the birth center.
Mom was only 25 weeks and 4 days into her pregnancy. She had been on bedrest for the past 5 weeks, as her water broke at 20 weeks. (Keep in mind that a "term" pregnancy is 40 weeks). Yesterday she abrupted (her placenta detached from the uterine wall). This is a life threatening emergency. She was rushed to the OR for a c-section. Baby was born and weighed 2.2 pounds (which is actually HUGE for a 25 weeker), was stabalized and taken to the NICU. However, his lungs were too underdeveloped. The NICU staff were unable to save him. Never an easy situation.
I can't divulge names, but if you would please keep this family in your prayers, I know it would mean the world to them.

Yes, another zombie . . .

This guy is one of my most disturbing zombie critters (at least according to my friends!). A zombie ferret, for your enjoyment!

He is pretty creepy. With his vicious little teeth, and all . . .
And a skeletal tail, for good measure!

Fun Christmas ornaments!

Ah, yes. 'Tis the season to break out the ornaments to make your slowly dying tree look pretty. Or your plastic one look more festive.

. . . .I kid!!! I love Christmas and Christmas trees! So I thought I'd share some Christmas ornaments I found on Etsy! But, seeing how I'm also pretty icky, well, I gotta share some icky-ish ornaments!

Hell yes!! This IS a crap bunny ornament!! From spidercamp!

Hooray for cooties!!! From igotcooties!

Vicious, killer heart ornaments from morrgan!

Why yes!! Yes that IS meat ornaments for your tree! Why the hell not?! By zaennabanana.

Look! It's a vagina for your tree!!! Don't need a vagina, you say? Stiletto also has penis ornaments!
I hope you enjoyed our little journey into the wacky side of Christmas ornaments!
I'm seriously considering the vagina . . .

Oh my . . . .

Yes, yes. I neglected my blog this weekend. It was a busy weekend filled with family and friends and photoshoots. Not to mention that I have a few new critters in the works, and a couple of custom orders.
And I work today and Wednesday (and the weekend too, but who's keeping track?).
I'll be a good girl and post more often!
