Quirky lil clock toot..

i needed a new clock... turns out that one of my clocks that had been reading the SAME time forEVER was that way cuz it was BROKE.  haha!  :D

sOoo.. i decided to buy a new one.. but just a cheapie..  it looked *okay* online..


honestly, i could NOT in good conscience put this up.. reminds me of school..

sOo, i decided to go fancy.. cuz, well.. u know me.. lol

i broke out my stash of modpodge, magazine cut outs & a brush & went at it!

i used old Anthropologie & Free People catalogs..
they have awesome texture & prints..

Step 1: remove the clock glass *face thingy* before you begin..

Step 2: paint your lil' magazine papers everywhere!

Step 3: put the face thingy back on before the podge dries completely.. (to make sure you don't jack up  ALL your hard work.. podge dries hard.. you want the paper to give a lil' as you put the face thingy back on)

Step 4: enjoy all your hard work!

okay.. sO, i know we're all different, but i appreciate a lil' bit of quirkiness..
sO, i let the numbers below the podge peek out a lil'
for dimension..
& quirk's sake..

i warn you before you do this one.. modpodge is a LOT like kindergarten glue projects..

i started havin' flashbacks of when i had to peel the *skin-like* layer of glue from my palms..

good times.. good times*...

christmas cards...

EVERY year or MOST every year, i make my Christmas cards..

it's fun.. AND i enjoy the personal touch that it adds.

i'd LOVE to receive handmade ANYthing, sOo.. why not give handmade, right?


anyway..  i've been told by people for years that i should *publish* a line of handmade greeting cards..


honestly, the idea intimidates me as well as makes me mentally constipated..

i can't think of a good idea to save my life!

not good.

but, i've been doodlin' a lil' bit here & there and i thought i'd share a quick lil' doodle with you..

another lil' birdie..  ;)
should i color my doodles??
i sure could use some input..
i'd love some feedback.. should i make greeting cards???

leave me a comment..  let. me. knowwwww..   <3

pirate OR ninja??

okay.. sO, we don't celebrate halloween..

no need to.

anyway, my j-boy #3 LOVES to play dress-up & he HAD to have a ninja costume.. and ANYbody in their right mind knows that halloween stuff sells for what it's REALLY worth the next day or two or three later..

(you get the point)

sOo.. we went costume shoppin' tonight.

at SEVERAL different places, we showed up & all they had were skeletons & jack-o-lantern buckets, so we ended up at the friendly FAMILY dollar. lol

they had ONE bootleg broke ninja wannabe costume.. and j-boy #3 was ecstatic!!  aren't we lucky..?  the ONLY one in HIS size..  o_O

peep the *church* shoes.. not to mention, the one j-boy got didn't look nearly as nice..
can sumbody say "bootleg"??

now you know if the name of the store is family dollar the clothes are shrinkin' before you even put 'em on... that joint HAD to be a size 2T.  j-boy #3 is a TALL 6 year old.

he didn't care.. he was gone' rock that thing anyway.. HOLES and all.. lol..

then, we decided to encourage him to return it.. (he bought it with his own money)

we went to Kmart a few minutes later & they had the REAL deal ninja costumes!

this stuff is SERIOUS. lol

i showed j-boy online, cuz this was all discovered when we got home... he didn't know how to act..

what baffles me is HOW are u gonna sell this stuff in good conscience?? you know it's flammable.  God forbid i smoked, j-boy would be melted into that thing right now.. & on top of that, falsely advertised.  the one j-boy bought was NOT the same thing in the pic above.. his has an Eddie Munster (remember him?) peak comin' into the forehead..  o_O  AND it was about half the size that it's labeled to be..

shame on you, family dollar. lol i learned my lesson.

tomorrow is returns day.. j-boy can't wait! :D

ninja *update*

kmart is WHACKKKKK!!  they're costumes are bootleg, too!!  the one in the pic was missing the belt for EVERY costume i found. which tells me that they're falsely advertising accessories.. the pic on the packaging had nunchuks.. sO, of course j-boy #3 was lookin' for 'em.. sOoo whack. 

i'm done.

Cool pic...

Good for those times when there's nothin' really to write about, but I KNOW you deserve a lil' sumthin..


And in case you had any doubts, YES.. it's a fly. Don't ask me why. I just grabbed it for your viewing pleasure.

Am I thoughtful or what!?

and of course this pic would inspire another whack haiku..

lookin' cute all wet
yet you still so, sO dirty
i never liked flies.

Nevermind... O_o
