Shrinking is so fun I am about to cry. All I want to do is shinkydinky, and all I can think about is how much shrink plastic I'm going to buy in the future because of how fun it is. It is unbelievable. I made a billion little things and this one is my favorite so far.

I was in San Francisco last weekend, and at the hotel I made this pouchy while watching Juno. So I call it the Juno pouch. I think I 'm going to give it away, because that's what I don't really like to do. I just want to keep everything for myself!

Photobooth pictures blow, but I can't find my camera battery charger!

I forgot to make the post for Week #3 shirt, but it was made, and #4 was made today. Posts on that later!


I love to make!

I bought a bunch of plaques over the winter because I thought I would make hanging loveliness for people for Christmas. I never got around to it, but now I have all these things I can make for my wall! One thing I made is this cat thing with actual yarn ball, inspired by Justin's roommate's vintage art. Here's picture of the original, and my version of the cat thing next to my favorite green shoes.

The other night, I helped Justin's roommate Nick with a V-day present for a lady and it is the sweetest thing ever! He saved up the ends of guitar strings for years, and I strung them together and added a clasp. It is brilliant. Then we ate some garlicy pasta and watched Mr. Show and went to bed. The best.


Happy Birthday Abe Lincoln!

Sorry Abe, I didn't realize it was your birthday until two hours ago. I freaked out and made a fuse bead thing of your lovely beautiful face. I hope everything is okay and you're not mad at me. I love you. SO much.


Black History Month #2!

This week's cool African American person is Frederick Douglas! i messed up the screen and his face is kind of scary, but the screens kept on dying and I had to print at least one of them. This is it! I might make another one, but right now, I'm kind of happy with how freaky it looks. Thank you Frederick Douglas for caring about slave issues.


My First Quilt!

I finished my first quilt the other day, and the whole experience was very rewarding. Going into this, without research, and not knowing what kind of commitment I needed to have, it was very difficult. But few Mondays ago, I had to end the 4 month long process of not finishing the quilt. My favorite part is that I can actually cuddle with what had been scraps of fabric, and the light that comes through the quilt when I hold it up to the light. I am pretty much infatuated with all the uneven parts, which is pretty much the whole quilt. If I were to do it again, I would definitely plan but right now it's kind of hard to even think about the next one. I wish quilts were easier to make so I can make one everyday, but then I wouldn't feel so good to cuddle with them. And next time, I would definitely make a pattern. For this one, I used self developed quilt making skills and made it according to my assumption of how it was made, rather than planning ahead with research and preparation. I want to do it for real next time!
There's a "detail" shot of my quilt with Frank Farter, our favorite dog toy for our non existent dog. Justin's new house gets lovely light through the windows during the day, so I want to bring everything there to take pictures.

Fuse Beads!

They are my new favorite. Ali bought me 10,000 beads for last Christmas and tonight we worked with them. They are so amazing. I really love how tacky they are. I love fuse beads!

I've been pulling my hair out because of the stress of one shirt design a week. It's pretty hard, but this week's shirt is pretty kick ass.


Black History Month

As you all know, February is Black History Month. To celebrate this special month, I will be debuting new t-shirt design of deserving icons of the African American history every Friday. The first week, the first shirt is dedicated to Oprah Winfrey. February is special and has 5 Fridays, that's 4 more design!

If you want one, just ask!
