Finally got my big wall art project finished. I am very excited about it.
I used an image of the dill plant from wikimedia commons, edited it around a bit, sent it off to Staples for a 3′X4′ print, pinned it to black foam board that I’d attached to the wall, then went around the edges of the image with a Sharpie. I like. OH! And look! Mameshiba!
“Did you know? The inside of a kangaroo’s pouch is smelly.”
Thanks, Mameshiba. -_-
The first time I ever saw the thin strips of origami paper for making stars was years ago when I bought some to sell in my old store, VK. I had no idea how to make them, but I love origami, and I love origami paper… so I had to figure it out.
I learned how to make them based off of pictures because the instructions were in Korean… so it took me awhile, but I finally got it. It would’ve been a million times easier if someone would’ve just taught me in person and said, “you’re just going to start it off by tying a knot in the paper and squishing it flat.”
I love making stars. They look so cute in jars.
Rhyming like a boss.
Look at this great paper. It’s the very first origami star paper I ever had.
And I looove my little bottle of stars. (With paper of my astrological sign):
My cat Max is insane. I mean… insane. I’ll put it this way- he is a highly effective hunter…
Anyway. He is a rescue kitty. And he is one of the most lovable, delightful cats of all time. He’s just a ruthless killer, that’s all. He just wants to leap out from behind a bush and scare the sweet Jesus out of you. All the time.
But look how cute he is here… with that little bit of tongue sticking out! Aww!
I have the most adorable flash drive ever. One day, I took it along with me to a meeting. I took pictures of its adventures.
Hanging out with Phil.
Hanging out in coat. (Look at my husband’s pretty hair. Like an anime hero.)
I made a flash game. It’s my first attempt at a flash game.
Made by me (Tres)… and Xaudius.
You can play it here-
How cute is this?! It’s a little tin container with a coin slot on the top… and the whole side flips down on hinges. I keep my Gogo’s Crazy Bones stickers in here. There’s a duck on it. Like, omg.
I bought it at a dollar store. For a dollar. I try not to think about the Chinese slave babies that probably made it. If someone would make stuff like this in a fair-trade type of situation, I’d totally buy it. Even if it cost twenty times more. I wish I could give all the factory workers who helped make this a great big hug. And a million dollars.
Everyone loves a toilet paper roll owl. I’m no exception. I decided to fold over both ends so that I could stick a gift inside it. This was my super fast (done in about 45 seconds) prototype… I figure the ones I’ll use for Christmas will be fancier, covered in paper and whatnot. So many possibilities.
My best friend, Abby gave John and I these gourds that she painted. So kawaii. So colorful.
