Project 365

My latest digital art! A male house sparrow - my favorite bird and my main totem animal.
Done in Gimp, this took me 4 hours . . . .but well worth it! I'm very happy with how this turned out!

My zombie squirrel was on Big Brother last night!!!!!!

Can you fucking believe it?????????

So yeah. I didn't do any Project 365 pics over the weekend, so here's 3 for Saturday, Sunday and today:

Pretty darn awesome!!!!!
It was a brief showing, but hey - IT WAS ON NATIONAL TV!!!!!!
I haven't found a short clip yet, but the full episode is on the Big Brother website. It's episode 8 and my squirrel is about 24 minutes in (yes, you can fast forward to that part)

Project 365

Ayden getting ready to eat some of the trout we caught. He was soooooo excited to have some fish, but in the end, he couldn't eat any. He said he'd turn into a fish if he ate any. :)

Sooooo, ah, am I weird?

So I'm wondering what y'alls opinion on this is.Is it weird/strange that I'm fascinated by dead animals?

Let me explain: I love animal skulls and fur, taxidermy and the like. But I also like the ACTUAL dead animal. For example, if I'm driving down the road and see roadkill, I SOOOOOOO badly want to stop! At the very least for pictures, but if the animal isn't damaged I want to load it up and take it home. You know - maybe salvage the skull and other bones . . . . Or if I'm walking in the woods I'm constantly on the lookout for bones, skulls, dead animals . . .I haven't brought any home as of yet, because my hubby thinks I'm barking mad.

Well, let me rephrase - I haven't brought home any roadkill - I have skulls and furs and whatnot.

So what do you think?


Am I off my rocker?

Calm down people!!!!! It's just a roadkill CAKE!
I decided to keep in good taste and not share any real roadkill pics.

Plague rat can has hug?????


This is a vent post. You can ignore it, if ya like.
Tomorrow I increase my dose of Lamictal again. Which means I'll have 2-3 days of uncontrollable yawning.
Not really.
Today though I feel very weird. Like I'm cycling between hypomania and depression. As I'm typing things and farting around on the internet, I feel energized, inspired, jumpy and excited. Then I pause for a minute, or reflect on how I'm not happy about my digital art (stupid, I know - I've been doing digital all of 2 weeks) and I feel overwhelmingly depressed. And then I snap back to feeling giddy - all within minutes.
So yeah. That's been my morning.

Ayden and Jeremy on an elephant!

OMFG NO WAY!!!!!!!!!

Sorry for the cursing but OMFG!!!!!
Yesterday I was contacted by Adam - the head of Public Relations for Etsy. He passed along an email he recieved from the fucking Head Producer of "Big Brother"!!!!!!!!!!
So I sold a zombie squirrel to a gal as a gift for her husband. I remember this gal as she told me a fun story - a few months ago her husband was going to get a new tattoo. She asked what he was getting and he said he had no clue. He came home with a zombie squirrel on his arm!!! When she saw my zombie squirrel, she had to buy it for him.
Turns out, her husband is Matt, one of the contestants on this season of Big Brother!
So the show wanted permission to USE MY ZOMBIE SQUIRREL ON THE SHOW!!!!!!
Of course I said YES!
I'm not sure when it will air - possibly as early as tonight's show! Apparently the contestants get gifts from home and my zombie squirrel is one of the gifts for Matt.

Project 365 - OMG AWESOME SAUCE!!!


So there's this FABULOUS gal on DeviantArt who is simply BADASS! Her art is amazing!

She goes by Sin Common Stitches. You should check her out!

Anyway, she made these very cute and awesome zombie dog designs that you could basically "adopt" and do what you want with the design.


I HAD to have one!!! I took design #2 (see all of them here)

ANNNNNNNNDDDDDDDD, I made my first drawing with him!!! I've named him Styx - after the river Styx.

I'll be doing more art featuring him! Woot!

Zan Likes Mice - Because She's Icky

Yay! It's Zan! Carrying a dead mouse. She's become quite the rodent killer. My newest piece of digital art! I used layers on this one, and I'm kinda getting the hang of them. I used Gimp. But I can't find any good tutorials for it. I find AWESOME ones for photoshop, but alas, I do not have photoshop.

I'm pretty happy with it. The more I practice, the better I get!!

Craigslist rules

Found on Craigslist for Colorado Springs:


I'm pretty sure it has a jet engine that's designed to suck a golf ball through a straw, it's only compitition is a black hole, but lets face, we'll never be able to test this theory, unless, of course your Chuck Norris.

If it wasnt for this superstrength cargo net, my dog would have been sucked right up. Currently it's set up to run off of your standard 110v outlet, but i'm pretty sure you can buy an add on to convert it to jet fuel, but i just didnt want my house smelling like burnt jet fuel.

It's also bagless, so that means you can suck the dirt up inside your house and send it packin right back outside. THERES NO ROOM FOR DIRT IN MY HOUSE (Thats what you say when you dump the canister out)

It has a couple attachments, like a magical wand that extends the sucking distance by like 5 ft and it also comes with a little brush sucker thingy, i dont have the manual so i'm just giving its descriptive name.

I'm saving up to buy a black hole from Chuck so every penny counts.

Thanks for looking If you inquire about my product and then decide your not manly enough to handle that much sucking power, please let me know so I can sell it to someone else. NO HARD FEELINGS."

Here's the linky, in case you can't enlarge the pic.

This OWL is BAMF!

That stands for bad-ass-mother-fucker.

Oh yeah. I went there.

What did you say? This owl will slap you silly!

Or not. I don't know.

New arts for me! Took about an hour.

Coffee, ink, and colored pencil on watercolor paper.

That's me. Steal it and I'll stab you in the face. Right. In. The. Face.

This is my FAIL wolf!
Why is he fail? Well, mainly because my anatomy is WAY off. The eyes should be larger, higher up and a little farther apart. Ugh.
Of course, I didn't notice this until I had reached this point. I probably won't finish him as the glaring mistakes annoy me too much.
Grrrrrrr, I say. Grrrrr.

That's right bitches. I jumped on the Twilight bandwagon.

And by jumped on, I mean that I'm reading the first book. Yup. About half way through it. And I gotta say, it is an enoyable and easy read.

I can also see why tweens and teens love it so. If I had read this in junior high, I'd totally be pretending I was Bella. And pining for a vampire.

But no. I'm 31. And while I can enjoy the book for what it is - a fun read - I can't bring myself to be crazy about it.

And by crazy, I mean this:

Ummmm . . . . .okaaaaaaay.

It seems that middle-aged women are trying to relive their teen years vicariously through the books and movies.

Earth to Twi-moms: IT'S NOT REAL

Seriously. Edward and Jacob are not interested in you. Get over it.

Project 365

My brother gave me the first season of The Big Bang Theory to watch. I've heard good things about the show, and my bro loves it - and we tend to have the same taste.

So I'll be watching lots of it!

Ayden has a thing for ladybugs. He freaking LOVES them. So I made him a plush ladybug! He loves it!

Oh, and he's also doing his Gilbert Gottfried impression in this pic . . . . .
In case you don't know who Gilbert Gottfried is, here's a reference pic:

Eh? EH? Close resemblence . . .
