Been getting out.

These days it's been all about Etsy items and getting out of the house.   I am planning a Zombie Brains How-to, but I need to decide how I'm going to handle it.

In the meantime, I've been out hiking quite a bit more than usual this year and I couldn't be happier.  I know the pic doesn't show it, but that was taken at dawn and I'm not a natural early riser.

I've been working on some quirky little pieces for the Etsy shop, like Apple Cozies.  They seem incredibly silly, but they do actually help prevent your apple from bruising while it's in your bag.

And I've been putting together some terrariums with various Tillandsia Ionantha plants in them.   They're a great "small space" gardening option for window sills and desk areas and well as being incredibly easy to care for.

Plus, who doesn't love a plant that requires NO DIRT!

Another Custom Request: Roast Turkey!

A friend's husband has a birthday coming up and he asked for a Nook EReader as his gift.  So he needs a case.  

She and I talked a bit about his interests and things and I told her I would think on it and come back to her with ideas.  When I saw her next I suggested a Scooby Doo-esque giant hamburger with the opening under the top of the bun.

She said "Perfect!  Next to turkey, grilled hamburgers is his favorite meal."

And another friend said "Why not make the turkey then?"

The response comes:  *gasp*  "Could you?"

"Of course I can."


I delivered this Sunday, and everyone who saw it loved it.  His birthday is July 17, so I'll hear his reaction next week.  If she manages to keep the secret until then.  ;-)


The turkey has been delivered and it was a HUGE HIT!!!!!

Terrible at this.

I'd like to say that I've been excusably busy and that's why I haven't been posting weekly like I promised.  I'd like to regale you with tales of adventure on the high seas so you'll know why I haven't been around.
I'd like to share amazing photos of my death defying feats so you'll understand that it's not you, it's me.

But the truth of the matter is, I'm apparently terrible at blogging on a regular basis.

I've got quite a bit new posted on my Etsy shop.  

Oliver Octopus, who actually does have suction cups on his legs, so he can hang out on any smooth surface.

Wearable Alien Mind-Control Brain Slugs (alligator clip underneath works with most hair types/lengths) because awesome is even better when you can wear it!

Bracelets available in custom sizes and multiple colors.

And for good measure a couple of tiny Tilly terrariums.  The glass cube containers are 2.5" on a side with the plant sticking up just a tiny bit past the top.

None of this is an excuse for not posting anything, but at least you know I've been doing something.
