Fear Drives Me

Today I took a break from my normal routine. I sat in front of the tv and watched The Shining.

To know me well is to know that I have a strange fascination with horror movies. It is strange because I am easily scared. Since I was a kid I’ve been prone to having nightmares about movie monsters.

Little scares me now a days. So every now and then I hope that when I put in the dvd I will genuinely get scared. Only about five movies have scared me to the brink of insomnia.
The Shining was one of them.

I mention all of this because the movie put me into such a frenzy that I knitted like I’ve never knitted before. Knitted two wallets and I started a third.

Here’s hoping I will get some sleep tonight.

Quick Etsy Shop Update

I keep mentioning my shop in passing. Right now I’ve got a few knits waiting for some finishing details. They’ll be ready for the shop come Monday.

Such as this little cutie right here:

Quick Sneak Peek on my blog

For now the shop is being invaded by coffee cozies like this:

The plan is to churn out a couple of these everyday for the next few days.
I wish there were more hours in the day. Oh well it is what it is.

Well now I’ve got a roast to cook and maybe just maybe some mashed potatoes, roasted carrots and yams.

Have a great evening.

REPTAR!!!


Sorry. I just saw Reptar online and kind of freaked out.

I used to watch Rugrats, all the time. I always wanted a Reptar bar. They’re little chocolate Reptars. Whenever Tommy Pickles would eat one green gunk would pool at the corners of his mouth.

I may in fact think about food too much.

So be it.

I’m a nerd who craves sugar. I dig it the most.

Time to Refocus

Some days are better than others. Today was not my day. I feel very small.

I know I’m not alone when it comes to feeling stressed out. That said I scoured my favorite site for some inspiration.

Its time to refocus.

Goodnight Wednesday. I wish you well.

Knit Flix: John Water Edition

Lately I’ve been obsessed with music. I am either sewing or taking pictures so I have little attention for movies. That said John Waters is the perfect antidote to a busy preoccupied crafter. Two prime examples are the following movies!

HAIRSPRAY

This is a great film from my childhood. I so longed to be a hairhopper. I have impossibly straight hair. It does nothing. It merely mocks me. But I digress.

I can’t shake the feeling that this movie is a little to prim and proper for JOhn Waters. I love it. Its gloriously campy but its really quite sweet and of all his films it feels the most repressed.

I think there are two really great things to take away fromt this movie, loving performance of Divine and the great music. My favorite songs: “Foot Stompin'”

CRYBABY

I haven’t seen this film in years. This film is hard movie for me to watch. I saw this as a girl. Back then I had a huge crush on Johnny Depp. I had known him from 21 Jump Street (tv show). I thought he was so dreamy. I’ve heard over the years that he had originally jumped at the chance to be in a John Waters film as a way to break his ‘idol image’

When I first saw this movie I was completely blown away. I didn’t think for one second that it was an attempt to blight his old image. I just thought…he is sooooo dreamy. As an adult I can’t help but cringe. I can’t even fathom how my parents could have let me watch it. Its not that its bad its just that it is pulsating with sexual tension. I can’t trust myself to write anymore about it. I have a few images that speak for themselves.

*I didn’t get much work done while Johnny Depp writhed around in his super tight jeans.

I need to get back to work. I have pictures to take and a few silly things planned for Saturday and Sunday!

Goodnight Friday, its been fun!

Best Laid Plans

I am a little out of sorts today. I woke up early. Spent the morning sewing and ironing. I have five new goodies to upload onto Etsy.

But by 3:00 I burned out. I have been lost on the internet. I just was not in the mood to play. I kept thinking about sewing, knitting, felting. I am just consumed by it all.

I need a break. I need something, I think I’m gonna take the dog for a late night walk and then play fetch (indoor) for a few hours.
Clear my head.

Tomorrow I promise a new Knit Flix post and some pictures of a few new goodies I’ve created and I thought up a club I want to start (hint: its the best part of the day).

Goodnight!

Last Minute Craftiness

Guess who forgot about St. Patrick’s Day?

Every year its the same drill, celebrate the 16th and forget all about the 17th.

Before leaving the apartment I decided to create a quick little greenie.

A pin that would defy all would be pinchers.

Its sloppy, last minute, and fun.
This is how big it is...and that desk is dirty. :(
The project is pretty basic.

Scribble a little four leaf clover on a scrap of paper. Cut a circle out of a non-fraying fabric. *Used a bit of vinyl* Find some green felt and do your best to cut a clover.

I tried pinning the paper to the felt. It was a bit unnecessary. But to each their own.
Dual layer Clover Action...for the BEST luck!

I sewed the felt to the vinyl and glued the pin back to the felt backing. *You don’t need felt backing I was just snatching up bits of fabric and making a general mess.
This is how you can tell its last minute!

Finished Pin
Final Product...little greenie

All told I spent about 20 mins on this sucker. Is it a beauty, eh. The pin is actually meant for the dark of the night. Its a going out pin.

A conversation starter.

Remains of the Day

Growing up my brother basically spent a lot of time watching TV, playing video games and getting as far away from me as possible.

Not that I made things easy for him. I tried to tag along as much as I could.

Life is all about the small moments so here are a few.


*My brother and I know the words to the Duck Tales theme song.
Somethings never change.

I hope it was a pleasant day.

Goodnight.
