T-Rex Train, Sock Octopus, Phone Loan, & Hospital Adventure on My Own?

T-Rex Train Video My dad has proven not to be steadfast around balloons again They have the peculiar habit of swooning him Understandably, however What a guilty pleasure ...a T-Rex as light as a feather! (Dad’s antique toy train, balloons attached with dental floss, a snapped dowel, a giant zip tie and tape. Metal insulation tape track toothpicked down, fishing line to drag him across the ground.) And the BTS mess: Dino Derailment Video Had to make a

Sugar Plum Poppy, Baby’s 1st Xmas, and Wintery Weirdness.

Sugar Plum Poppy! Her Christmas gift. Wanted to make a camo cardigan for Pug, but he’s sometimes a fashionably disagreeable little slug.  6.5 hours Made from a shrunken thermal shirt, scraps, and serged 3x fullness skirt from grandma’s basement gingham roll.  Pops, being a gracious midnight-thirty model.  Decorating Without: A fireplace, a plan, energy, budget, indoor lights Or a tree! ♫Every morning, every evening Ain't we got fun? Not mu


First try at leather shoes + shoemaking with my lasts. Started them about five months ago but didn’t have the time/supplies to complete them until last week. Ballet flats don’t normally use welted sole construction, but I wanted to try the technique. Used the narrow German welt method. Made from a 20ish year old suede jacket (outer and lining), ¼” thick veg tan leather (insoles, outsoles, welt), faux leather (stiffener), ¼” wide leather reinforcement tape, ⅛ in thick cork (filler), ba

Pencil Portrayals, Purple Party, & a Chia Child

Feels so fine to frolic about in this fresh format!    Bugging my family. Pencil on tiny 3x4 watercolor paper, then laminated. As you may spot, I do not excel in matching the inner card decor to the outer. The predicament of buying primary colored card stock.  “.. Loved the World” -9x12.  Isn't it great, this place? The people? So many caring faces here on earth. I love each and every one of you, dear humankind. “What About Us/Medical Zebras.

Painting, Panda Pumpkin + Plant Lanterns

Just some artstuffs!    9X12 Lop ear bunny, finished last month. Acrylic, pencil and watercolor paper. I feel like the leaves look kind of odd/over-detailed....The reference photo had a bokeh background. It's so hard to decide when it's done.  Drawing time:? Painting time 31 hours. A happy little pumpkin panda with bamboo. White wood fill markers and black china markers will stick to pumpkin skin (Yaygaragestuff) . That color wheel feel when an art idea materi

My LEGO Totoro

(So, it seems as though blogging is allowed for all users now….If the rumors are true….My apologies for trying this if it is actually not permitted...)   This was the result of a random idea and illness-induced sleep deprivation. Very messy due to limited bricks. I haven’t watched “My Neighbor Totoro” in years, but this scene really seemed fun to build. I must admit, I am very disappointed in myself for forgetting to make the black umbrella to hang on the sign....frantically ran outside t

My feet mysteriously turned into blocks of wood...?

Or maybe blocks of wood turned into my feet.  After three years of making inferior-quality fabric shoes (with some slippers, some flat shoes, and ballet slippers being the only not-absolutely-weird-looking exceptions)  the realization that a shoe last is a necessary thing has soaked in...Thanks to the discovery of some new, enthralling shoemaking tutorials on Youtube! Apparently one needs a last before they can make leather shoes. I couldn’t find a wooden shoe last in my size any

Mini Mush Plush, Bear Wear, Cards +...Flower Cart?

Hello! Painted this little Totoro in a cartoon style a long while ago (fall?), a style I never do so feels wrong, but wanted a laminated cover for password book. The printer didn’t do so well, but I’m too chicken to laminate the original. I think I used pen too? Can't remember. That’s Porg, up there.   Some last-minute ornament friends for my dad’s coworkers. Wonderfully fun waiting room hand-amusement. 3hrs to make each. And one for a neighbor + thanku cards fro

Maybe a human-sized bird nest...

Hatched another wildly random idea... A human-sized Robin's egg bird nest bed/lounge chair. It's made of foam crib mattresses, sheets, poly-fill, offensively-strong glue, paint and elastic. Because I have always wanted one of these....since this idea popped into my head two months ago. ..Can I use the excuse that Porg demanded it?  You can make one too, if you want. I've made photo instructions on Flickr. For some reason it shows the last steps in the album

Koi, Cake and Holiday Makes

Greetings!   My brother visited on his exact birthday, a merry, now rare, treat. Skyline Lemon Cheesecake, design haphazardly generated using what I could find about two hours before baking it. Based on his city. Engulfed in lemon butter-mint dough and brush painted with gel food coloring and charcoal powder. Used an X-acto to cut out the window lights and filled them with yellow. Two hours decorating time, but I feel like the colorful clouds resemble a toxic explosion a little m

How to Dispose of Non-Lego Bricks: Dog Edition

(I would like to preface this by apologizing if posting off-brand brick creations isn’t allowed. I am sorry if not. This is probably so wrong, but I’m afraid it would be bothersome to ask.) I rediscovered the old dungeon castle MB bricks while sorting through the childhood Lego tote. The MB’s had not been used in years, and so many miscellaneous things had migrated into that box. K'nex, random tools, rubbish, doodles of Toad, office supplies, and those utility building pieces from monopoly

FaceFaceMask Tutorial and Other Weirdness

Just a vague tutorial, recent random artstuffspam and things. So a lot of months ago I made a mini costume 3D face-face mask just to see if it was possible.  Wanted to try again on a larger one for someone else aka my mom the test subject, so here’s how to make one, if you’d like. Supplies: One cotton face mask that matches the skin tone of the human model. I used a one-layer mask so the paint wouldn’t stain the lining. Paint mask before sewing to lining for multiple layers.

Fabric Forsythias and a Few Flops

12 hours on flowers! The promised eternal imposters. Pattern made from tracing the real flower shape. Cut from two layers of cotton, prior fused with spray adhesive and ironed together.  Assembled with Tex 70 upholstery thread, just a few stitches, one bead and leaving long strings.   Growing….Overflowing     Tacky glue, Mildly dilute. Thread tails taped to hangers to try.  Tied some to a twine vine.    And made a branch f

Chipmunk, Costumes, and Cotton Clouds.

Recent chipmunk, 9X12 acrylic + pencil on watercolor paper. Drawing time: ? Painting time: 42 hours. The drawing was from last year and not heavily detailed (done with a flashlight during a road trip).   Drawings from the past few months, 9x12s. I lacked access to a reference photo for one of them, so that accidentally resulted in a drawing of me as a mere primordial mush’. The last two are smaller, old/not very good (2018-2019, flashlight car art) ones with some newly added

Cake, shirt, life.

..Rareactualreallifeentry.. It has been wild lately. Medical TMI warning, I’m sorry in advance. But first, a of couple creations. Just a shirt and chess-cake cheesecake for my brother. Stoked that he finally was able to visit. The cake was really rough-looking.I made charcoal-dyed lemon butter-mint dough to cover it because I didn’t have fondant. Kind of floppy and hard to work with, and was totally last-minute.  Finally got to apply some newly-learned sewing techniques
