Project 365 - ZAN!

Well, Zan and Ayden.

Ayden loves feeding Zan. And Zan loves eating food, so it works out well. You can see Zan's expectant nose on the right there.

Yeah, I don't know. I told Ayden to give Zan a kiss and he went for her rump. It looks like he's sniffing her butt. Classy!

Wait for it . . . . . wait for it . . . . .

OM NOM NOM NOM!!!!!!! Zan likes ham!

And Ayden loves Zan! Though he looks a little angry in this pic. maybe because he kissed her butt earlier . . .

Yes. Yes I DID go there.

Go where, you ask? Well, take a look:

Yeah . . . . . that's a carpet-munching beaver. Zombie, of course.

What? What sexual inuendo? I don't know what you're talking about. He's a beaver. He likes munching carpet. And, um, he's a zombie.

Shut up.

See? You've insulted my beaver with your talks of sexual references and generalized naughtiness.
You should be ashamed of yourselves.
Insulting my beaver . . . .

Project 365

This is way too early to be awake on a Saturday morning. Even if I am going to work today.

Project 365

Ayden and Zan love playing tug-of-war!


So remember when I wanted to post walruses on Etsy? Well, my computer is cooperating with me at the moment, so I'm posting FREAKING WALRUSES!!!!!

Hell yeah!

This plush walrus from ArtTales is eco-friendly! Made from scrap fabric and stuffed with plastic shopping bags (as are all the critters in her shop)!

Walruses totally can't skateboard. Love this print from youwannatalkjive.
This crocheted, felted walrus from thebirdsandbees is too cute for words!
This is how I've been feeling the past few days! Walruses on my brain! This print is from NoosedKitty.

And everyone needs a walrus shirt. Seriously. This wonky walrus is from WonkyRocket.

Oh man I feel better!!! Don't you feel better? You know you do.

You're welcome.

Project 365 - I MADE A SKIRT!!!

I sure did! In about 20 minutes today!

I still need to hem it and iron the seams, but I think it turned out good! Especially since it's the first article of clothing I've ever sewn!

I made it from a vintage fabric my Grandmother gave me.

Close up of the fabric.
I'm quite pleased with myself!

So I'm sitting here, watching Lost, wondering what to blog, and I keep on thinking about walruses. So I'm all, I know! I'll look up walrus stuff on Etsy!


But my damn laptop is a FREAKING DOUCHE CANOE!!!!

Like seriously.

It seems to dictate when I can and can't be on Etsy. Like, when I got home from work (I'm typing this Tuesday night, by the way), I could totally get on Etsy. But then I go to type up my kick-ass walrus post, and BOOM! No more Etsy. I'm sorry, but WHAT THE F**K?!?!?!?

It doesn't matter if I use internet explorer or mozilla firefox, yahoo, google, or bing. My Dell won't find Etsy.

These walruses are all, Oh noes!!!! Icky's computer is a douche canoe!
Soooooo, any ideas? Suggestions?

Project 365 - FABRIC!!!!!!!

Went to Joanns yesterday and splurged on the most gorgeous fabric EVER!!

It's an asian satin and is so smooth and soft and luxurious that I just wanna roll around in it.
The black has delicate red and black flowers embroidered on it. The red has black embroidered flowers. AND I got some fabulous black lace!

Here's a close up of the red, without the sheen glare. Sooooo pretty!

I couldn't get a good glare free close up of the black.

I haven'tdecided exactly what I'm going to make with it. I have some skirt and costume patterns, and a corseted jacket pattern that would all be awesome!

We'll see . . . . .

I'm so ready for Spring

I've been longing for spring. I'm tired of the cold, the snow, the wind, and the grey skies. I need the sun. The flowers, the green leaves, and a warm breeze.

Alas, February in Colorado doesn't allow that.

But this helps . . .

My Devil Dog turned out cute

Yep. So my plan was to make a very evil devil dog.

Can you feel the evil?

Neither can I.

He came out quite loveable. And the faux fur I used is ultra soft. So he's hugable too.

His wings are posable and his head is jointed.

Project 365

Ayden in the bath at 6:45 this morning. I'll spare you the details as to why he was in the bath so early (lets just say it involved a lot of clean up and a load of laundry).

He sure looks happy though!!

Be afraid . . .be very afraid . . . .

Why should you be afraid? Well, Joann's had Simplicity patterns on sale. 5 for $5. Now, I didn't go overboard - I only got 5 patterns. But the scary thing is that the patterns are for clothes!!!!!

That's right. I'm going to try my hand at sewing clothes.

Skirts mainly.

And costumes.

I'm a little intimidated, as I've never sewn clothing before. Like ever. Though I'm terribly excited to give it a go! And to buy more fabric.

FABRIC!!!!!! A girl can never have enough . . . .

So, I'm sitting around thinking what the hell should I blog? And I have this craving for pie. Like, for some reason I just wanna be smothered in pie. So then I start looking around the interwebs for, well, being covered in pie. And let me tell you, you can find some freaking weird things when you search the phrase "I want to be covered in pie". You know, fetish things. And I can't share that here. This is a family blog.

Okay. It's not a family blog, but I'm still not sharing it.

So instead, BABY ANIMALS!!!!

Coati mundi
Fennec fox

Sun bear


See? Aren't baby animals better?
