I'd like to introduce you to my new friend Frodo. This is a "Hobbit" plant. I should probably transfer him to a larger (or at least more attractive) pot, but last time i tried to repot my plants, they didn't make it.

I took all these nice pictures of the pretty flowers outside, but never posted them. So here are a few. Unfortunately, these outside plants are all dead by now. Either from old age or being pummeled to the ground from all the rain we've been having lately. But they're still pretty.

Artsy close up shot.

Voting for my shirt is officially over. It was scored by 611 people(!) and ended with a final rating of 2.09. Hopefully that score is high enough for them to consider my design as a shirt. According to their website they look at designs every couple of weeks. So i'm not giving up yet. Thanks to everyone who voted!

I've been a busy bee since my last post. My Yuletide Yeti and Santa Sasquatch are almost complete. I just have to make a hat for Sas' squirrel helper. Pictures coming soon! I recently made some sheep Chubbikins for an open house type thing my friend is doing. This is the first chubbikin with a face color other than white. At first i thought the faces looked a little scary, but once putting them on the chubbikin body i think they came out pretty cute! I thought it would be pretty hard to embroider a little design on their chest, so i put a little bell on there instead.

It's been raining for the past week or so, and boy it's sure making me feel lazy! It's extra hard to get out of bed in the morning and i have no energy for being productive. I have a lot of packing to do (moving in a week and one day yipes!). I should probably get to, maybe later.

Random thought: I'm going through all my music on itunes and rating the songs. I've received some flak for not having my music rated. It's pretty funny to songs i haven't played for years. And a little embarrassing. Forcing myself to listen to every song on my playlist is a little tough, but it helps me weed out the crummy stuff. Any song i rate a 2 or lower probably shouldn't be on my list.

I forgot to mention in my last post that i received my sticker book! Which means if you ordered it, you should probably be getting it real soon! I don't think it's in stores yet, but it will be soon i'm sure. It looks really good - like a real sticker book! Check it out on the Dover site here, or on Amazon here
Well, it's been a while since my last post. Oops! My lame excuse is that i've been sick, but i'm almost all better now, so here we go!

I posted new Party Animal cards in my shop today. You should take a look! I wasn't a 100% confident about this series, and i was hesitant about ordering cards. But I was happy when i opened the box and saw them. I think they're kinda nifty! 

I'm working on a design for Threadless. But i'm scared to post it! Haha lame. It's based on my octopus kite illustration. I'll let you know when i finally post it so you can vote for it. It would make a great tshirt i'm sure! 

I'm also working on my next Cloth, Paper, Scissors entry. Santa Sasquatch and the Yuletide Yeti. I couldn't work on them for a while because i didn't leave a big enough opening to turn them inside out and i didn't have a seam ripper. Oops. But now they are turned right side out and ready to go.
