Project 365

So I missed Project 365 yesterday as I was in the ER all day. So I'm posting 2 pics!

Jan. 29. Me in the ER. I had just gotten a dose of Fentanyl and am pretty darn loopy.

Jan. 30. Ayden playing with his magnetic darts!

Holy Crap I'm in the Hospital!!!!

That's right. I'm typing this from my hospital bed. Woot! Luckily, I was admitted last night to my own floor (remember - I work postpartum and nursery, but my floor also handles GYN patients).

Why was I admitted? I'm glad you asked! Let me tell you . . . . .

So Thursday night around 10pm I had some cramping and gas pain. Felt like I was a little bloated and constipated. So I go to sleep and wake up around midnight, cramping and gassy, and I have a bowel movement (BM). No relief. So I go back to bed and kinda roll around in pain, drift off, then roll around in pain some more. Next thing I know, it's 4am. I get up, still cramping and gassy, have another BM, and decide to take some milk of magnesia to try and move things along. I go and lay on the couch, the pain building and building. I can't sit cause it hurts, I can't lay down because it hurts and I can't breath. At 5am, I finally wake Jeremy and have him bring me the phone so I can call in sick.

I felt like an idiot. I'm all, 'hi Amy. It's Cami. I hate to do this to you but I need to call in sick. I have horrible gas pain and I can't stand up straight.' Duuuuuuuude, I called in sick with gas pain.
So Jeremy takes Ayden to his mom's, and comes back to make sure I'm doing okay. By this point, I'm not. I'm in a great deal of pain and it's only getting worse. So off to the ER we go!
By the time the ER doctor comes to check me out, I'm in tears I hurt so bad. Labor was not nearly as painful.

I have x-rays, blood work, an abdominal ultrasound, CT scan, and then a transvaginal ultrasound done. I had a cyst on my right ovary burst and begin bleeding into my abdominal cavity. Yay! So I'm admitted to be watched and to get my pain under control.

Thankfully, my pain is much better. Not gone, as I have an abdomin filled with blood, but tolerable. I just had blood drawn and am waiting to get the results. Those will dictate whether I get to go home, or have surgery.
Good times.

Feature Friday - MAB Jewelry

MAB Jewelry is, well, a fantastic shop. Awesome covered in awesome-sauce, if you will. And Laura, the gal behind MAB, is pretty darn spiffy! Her jewelry has a slight Victorian/steampunk feel to it. A little bit of vintage and modern.

See? Gorgeous necklaces!

And delightful earrings!

I recommend you visit her shop.

Oh, and her blog is pretty kick ass too.

He wants to steal your heart! And your brains . . . . .

Hi! I is cute zombie bunneh. I can haz brains?

Project 365

This is what I woke up to this morning! I took this at 5:30am (I'm up at this ungodly hour because I work today). Zan's in the background looking for the perfect poo spot . . .

On a Spiderman placemat.

Zombie Bear

This little guy is my 4th bear! And I do mean little - he's only 6 inches tall standing (4 inches when sitting).

He's 5-way cotter pin jointed, so his arms, legs, and head all turn. His eyes are knida buggy . . .

He's so darn cute! I just wanna mash him!

Ooooo, something nommed his ear off . . .

This guy is in my shop now! Woot! I'm quite proud of him - especially since he is small.

Project 365

Bath time!

Adam Lambert = HAWT!!!!!!

Last season's American Idol is the only one I ever watched. And it was because of Adam Lambert. One, his voice is phenomenal. Second, he's freaking hot.

See that? Yum!!

So yeah, I know he's gay and all, but you can't deny his hottness!!!

Nor can you deny his raw talent. And yes, I have downloaded his CD - and it rocks. Not to mention that he has a theatrical background which makes his onstage performances a treat to watch.

Okay. I'll stop drooling now.

Project 365

What do you think? Do you think my son likes Spiderman?

Sadly, this isn't all his Spiderman stuff. Not pictured: placemat, 3 sets of pj's, 2 shirts, 1 hoodie, blanket, pillow, decals on his walls, and various other toys that are in his room at the moment (he's asleep right now and I'll be damned if I'm going to wake him!).

Zan is a lazy dog. But comfortable.

Project 365

Concentrating so hard on Saturday morning cartoons, and certainly not thrilled about me taking his picture. He's got his granola bar, milk and bucket of toys. Life is good.

Feature Friday - suenosdejmi

Today's Feature Friday is a very special gal by the name of Jaime. She's the Etsy Owls Team's fearless leader and is freaking awesome! She does so much for the team and makes fabulous knit and crocheted goodness! Her shop is suenosdejmi. Go there. Now.

I love these colorful knitted fingerless gloves. The colors are scrumptuous!

This scarf if beautiful and perfect for Valentines day!

This chunky cowl will keep you warm!!

Jaime also does amigurumi. I have a bull from her, which I love!

Visit her shop and show her some love!

By the way, Jaime, I'm still waiting on that cow butt!

Project 365

A pile of toys on my kitchen floor. Yep. That's a big tarantula there. It's remote controlled and freaking awesome!

Ahhhhhhh, Matilda. She's a very evil bat. Who wants to eat your face.

She's a new design of mine, and she tried to kill me while I was taking her picture.


And you know what else is evil?

That's right. Girl Scout cookies. Because they're delicious. And expensive. And they tempt you where ever you go because those blasted Girl Scouts push them like crack. Freaking crack!

Project 365

So I'm up at 5;30 this morning to get ready for work and do this post and I'm all 'what the hell should I take a picture of?'

See, it's 5:30 am, I didn't sleep well last night, and I haven't had coffee. So I snapped a pic of one of my Oaxacan carvings (pronounced wa-ha-can). Oaxaca is a state in Mexico and I absolutely LOVE these carvings. They are said to represent the dreams of the people doing the carving.

I'd love to do my own carvings. But my dreams can be weird. Go figure.

New Stuff - Ratties!

Thought I'd share my 2 new ratties with you!

You're welcome.
This is Sven. He's pretty bad-ass. He's got a mohawk. And a Napoleon complex.

And here's Blaze. He has a mohawk too. He's all, "check out my mohawk bitches! Hell yeah!" Blaze has a potty mouth.

Project 365

Back from the gym this morning!

Okay. So ignore the bags under my eyes, and the zit on my chin, and the total lack of make up. What do you expect??? I just got home from the gym!

Creepy Dolls

Creepy Dolls is a shop that I admire. Her dolls are, well, creepy!

This gal features a resin monkey skull for her head. Ain't she cute?

WAAAAAY creepy! I'd love this as a Halloween prop!

Zombie Easter Bunny, anyone?

It's surprising, really, that I like these dolls. No, really. I hate porcelain dolls. They scare me. They follow me with their eyes and plot my death.

But make them even more creepy, and I like them.

Wanna see more? Pop on over to Creepy Dolls!

Project 365 - Self Portrait

Why is my self portrait a horse (or, more accurately, the horse's ass)?

Let me tell you a story. Last night Jeremy and I are getting ready for bed (no, it's not that kind of story). He kind of gets in my way, like he wants a hug or something. So I go to give him a hug and he moves back a little and turns his head side to side, and looks up, staring at me the whole time. So I'm all, dude, what are you doing? And he's all, "if I was a chick, I'd be very upset right now." (and I'm thinking, if you were a chick, I'd totally be a lesbian, and how the hell did you impregnate me 4 years ago??). And he's still kinda looking up so I look at the ceiling, and I'm all, what? Is there something on the ceiling? Are there spiders? There had better not be any spiders, and he puts his hands on his face. Then I'm all Oh. My. God. You freaking shaved!! And he's all, "see? You don't even notice these things." Hey - I notice things. Just apparently not the obvious things.

So, we've been together for 10 years. 10 YEARS. And for the whole 10 years he's had a goatee. Duuuuuuuuuude, he shaved off his goatee and I didn't notice!

So I'm an oblivious horse's ass.

But I'm still awesome.

Project 365 - Please tell me that's not what I think it is . . .

Sorry. It is.

A 5 gallon bucket full of crap. Yep. I got to pick up dog poo when I got home from the gym this morning. Not that I wanted to, but seeing how I've been avoiding it for the past month, well, it had to be done.
Why am I sharing a picture of a bucket of shit with you?
Because I'm awesome and that's how I roll.
You're welcome.

Sick with croup and quite annoyed with me for snapping this pic.

My best friends in the morning. No, not the gunk on the front of my coffee maker. The coffee.

I Found a Fab Giveaway!

I know I've said it before, but I really like free stuff. Well, I found another awesome giveaway! AND, since I'm all about extra entries to win said free stuff, I'm blogging the giveaway! Woot! But hey, I'm not a jerk who's just gonna post a little linky to the blog with the giveaway and be all "hey look at me I blogged the giveaway I'd like my extra entry". That would be rude. And I'm a proper lady.

Stop laughing. I am a lady. A crude, politically incorrect, zombie obsessed lady, but a lady none-the-less.

So anyway, the shop giving away wonderful free things is Muffin Top Designs. Check out her shop - it's FREAKING AWESOME! But she's not hosting it on her own blog (which you can visit here). Nope! It's being hosted by Epicurean Style!

What do you win?

These ridiculously awesome kick-ass earrings! Hand hammered and cold forged Argentine silver. Want.

But remember, I'm not a jerk so I feel the need to share more of her wonderful designs!

I love these rings! Hand hammered silver and copper. She has such a lovely variety in her shop. And I love how all her jewelry has a loose, organic feel to it.

Her Nest Egg series is equally impressive and beautiful.
Alright. You've got the linkies above. So I suggest you visit Muffin Top's shop and visit the blogs.
Just don't enter the giveaway - I don't want more competition.

I will be doing a photo shoot in said mask . . . . . and not much else. Which means, alas, the photos won't be appropriate for the 'ol bloggity blog.
Well, unless I wanted to turn my blog into a soft porn site, then they would totally be appropriate.
But I'm not sure the hubster would appreciate that ;)
