I just got back from visiting family and had absolutely no time to myself over the last few day. Definitely not enough time for sewing. Besides, I wasn't sure what I could get through security sewing-wise in a carry-on without getting tackled.

Oh, and as a bonus, I came back with a cold. Hurray.

So, I will un-pause my 365 as soon as I possibly can.

It's probably for the best that I do not operate a sewing machine or wield sharp objects while hopped up on Nyquil. Although it may turn out some interesting items being sewn together. Nah, I don't want the hubby accusing me of Modge Podging the cat... to the ceiling... or some silliness like that. I would never do such a thing. Maybe.

Create 365 - Day 50

I made a backpack belt today to make sure said backpack stays a certain size.

I didn't have time to run out and find something like this with the slim hope that there might actually be something like this to be found anywhere nearby. Besides, I had everything I needed to make my own right here! The clip was rescued from a duffel bag that no longer needed it and the belt is made from a double layer of 1"wide single fold bias tape. Reinforced the end where the female part of the clip goes with an extra layer plus a bit of edge stitching later and, voila, I'm good to go.

Create 365 - Day 49

Double trouble! Finally finished these two guys...

Jonny Craig chibi dolls in their dermal pierced and "tattooed" (embroidered) glory. One in a grey tee and one in a white tee so they can be told apart.

Up next, more (but different) chibis!

Create 365 - Day 48

You know when you just have one of those days where you get an idea in your head, try it out and... it bombs. Yeah. Anywho, once I got that disaster out of my noggin I finish one of two chibi dolls. Yay!

Totally made up for my fail from this morning. I'll have full sized pics once the second on is done and approved.

Itty bitty teeshirts & itty bitty jeans for a couple of chibi dolls!

I am also in the midst of a peanut butter chocolate chip cookie baking frenzy. Damn, it smells great in here. Off to take the first batch out of the oven!

Create 365 - Day 46

I made some serious headway on a couple of custom chibi dolls but they're not done-done. I edited a bucket load of pics but you see those in my shop. I reworked a pattern but I can't show you that. I can't be giving away my sekrits now!

So here is a tiny, 1 & 3/4" tall origami crane perched on a chibi Jonny goatee...

Create 365 - Day 45

Well, apparently our princely little Jackalope has siblings since one turned up today to wish the other bon voyage. Also, Grumpy Cat is back but doesn't seem to care much for the horned bunny, or "lunch", as Grumpy kept mumbling.

I think I'll keep these two separated until it's time for Grumpy to go to her new home, so nothing unfortunate happens. I wouldn't want the royal Jackalope guard pounding down my door, that's for sure.

P.S. - Check out my Facebook page for some great deals this month. Happy V-Day!

A tiny Albino Jackalope showed up today. He says he's a prince but really has no proof other than his little crown, worn so jauntily. What do you think, is he royalty?

Inspired by my fine friend, MonstrousIndustry, and her fantastic drawings and prints!

Create 365 - Day 43

I just couldn't help myself and created another Nyanpire.

Looks like he's happily presenting the beginnings of my other work, some custom dolls. Thank you, little Nyanpire, you are too kind.

Today has been pretty darn busy but I did manage to squeeze in a new Dark Cthulhu since the last one sold.

I know it's kind of dark (harhar) but I'll have better pics soon, promise!

Oh dear, it seems my nekos have gone vampire! Yet another adorably fanged Nyanpire has turned up on my table.

A tuxedo kitty with red sparkly wings, what's not to love?

Create 365 - Day 40

Today things didn't go quite right. There were errands to run but closures and overbooking got in the way. Le sigh. Although, I did get a fancy new backpack! So there's that plus. I also made this absolutely friggin' adorable (if I do say so myself) Nyanpire! Otherwise known as a BatCat...

Don't you just want to squeeze the stuffing out of it? So stinking cute.

Ow! Don't bite! Okay-okay, "you are the night", Nyanpire. I got it. Sorry. Sheesh, now I need a bandaid.

Create 365 - Day 39

Cookies... so many cookies. I'm drooling just typing about them. I made a few dozen peanut butter chocolate chip cookies, for the first time ever, from this recipe (link).

They turned out delicious! The only thing I did that the recipe does not mention is to flatten them a bit. They spread as they cook but not enough to flatten out nicely from a perfectly round ball. Just give them a little thwack-thwack with the back side of a flat spoon. So they know who's boss.

Create 365 - Day 38

I seem to be doing things in pairs lately. Here's a friend for the Red & Yellow Dragon, a Grey & Purple one.

When I get them to the light tent for a better photo shoot you'll get to see the cute little tails.

Create 365 - Day 37

I hinted at this yesterday and I'm really please with how it turned out.

Here there be Dragons! Well, one so far, but I think I've got a few more bubby Dragons skritching around that want to manifest. Also I may embellish a bit more before this one is done-done. Maybe. We'll see.

Oh, and I almost forgot the best part. The little Dragon is standing all on it's own thanks to a pointy, little tail!

Here there be... muffins?

I made a batch of pumpkin muffins (recipe here) and did some sketching of a stitchy idea. I would have made peanut butter cookies too but *someone*, that is not me, forgot the peanut butter when at the store.

Here's a snippet of the sketching...

Next up will be trying to see if I can bring the sketch to life!

Here's that Black Snake I mentioned in my previous post. Isn't it just precious?


These little critters are pretty shy and don't like to bite since people don't taste very good to them anyway. They'll snuggle up to you for warmth just fine though.

Year of the Snake! This cute little green snake is for the Chinese New Year which begins on Feb 10th.

It's actually the year of the Black Snake, to be exact, but I'll have one of those done later. The green called to me first.

Create 365 - Day 33

I got my new business cards today. So, I decided to take a chunk of time today for printing and cutting new stickers, and making more of the bat-fetti I include in my packages.

There are two versions of my new business card (left and right) plus a snazzy magnet (center) and a nice big pile of stickers in the midst of cutting. I think the next batch of business cards definitely need to be glossy since I really like the look of the magnet.

The bat-fetti isn't shown since my camera batteries decided to go kaput on me right after this pic, but I punched out a lot of them! Recycling old band fliers that would otherwise be thrown away, of course.

The Tiniest Reaper just isn't very good at his job, the reaping of things small and smaller, just yet. He tries to look all tough with his hoodie jumper and ripped off sleeves. But, really, he's not tough at all. The worst he can do to you is to give you dead arm or dead leg for a bit, that's about it.

He's trying though! With a little practice, and a lot of growing, he may one day be full reaper.
(Unlikely, but don't tell the poor dear little reaper that.)
