Sister Mary Monkeypants is BACK in Black

SMMP arrived home in style, toted to SAFF by Pixiethief. She's resting on the dining room table right now, calmly surveying her domain and smoking a knit cigarette. She's also clutching her new instant holy mary toast stamp and her new purple monster friend. Notice the sparkly bikini?
I know she's tired from chasing that scary looking nun we saw at SAFF. She was trying to sneak up on the nun to get a healing blessing for me since I'm apparently trying to die of exhaustion and too much fun crammed into one weekend. There's cuppycake porn from Fru (god bless her spunky glittery self) and Becca teaching Nick how to spin.
I had so much fun it should be illegal. The pugs were very bad, and I got prezzies and lots of sock yarn and learned how to felt teddy bears. YAY!

Candy Sushi Birthday

Son #1, my sushi fanatic, turns 14 in a few days so I made him a candy sushi bento platter. The plate is brownie, the green icing is supposed to be wasabi. MMMMM wasabi... I dearly hope he likes! Also pictured, a naked Eric Northman doll from TrueBlood. Clothes to follow when I get that figured out. Have a great weekend!

WonderWoman Skivvies and Collage Art

I'm getting closer to my goal of designing this project. Today the yarn arrived, and now I will find a way to chart the white stars on the blue background before I cast on. Ward finally hung the bamboo pole on the wall so I can display the scarves that made it home from Traveling Scarf year. That experience was such a great way to both make friends and learn new stitches. In other news, son #3 came home with a classic piece of collage work. He was told to fancy up American Gothic. His version, as seen in the photo, he calls "The Trinity" and says its Santa, God, and three pengins giving birth to the earth. I love it. I'm wondering if the art teacher had a clue what he did there.

Crafty Halloween and Nunsense

A week or so ago I posted this link on facebook for these totally cute crafty pumpkin scrapbook decorations. Well, last night I got to digging into my scrapbook papers and decided to go for it. They are so fun! Here are the ones I made.
We also have a new nun, from our dear jollypyrate that was randomly RAK'd to me, Sister Mary Tailor Moore! Cute!!
