I can’t believe I haven’t posted since September. Geesh, what a slacker!!! I blame Than.
He’s not around to read that so it’s ok.
Where oh where have I been you ask? Well, even if you haven’t asked I’m going to tell you. I’ve been homeschooling Than, taking care of our 2 new family members (the cockatiels, Izzy & Sky), attempting small crafts here and there and painting like I knew what I was doing.
That’s pretty much my entire life. Ok, that and getting diagnosed with 2 new diseases and a new “syndrome”. (sigh) It’s always an adventure being me. You wonder why I’m so weird. I know you do. It’s ok. I accept the weirdness. I EMBRACE it, actually. Gotta laugh so I don’t cry or some other maudlin Hallmark saying. I miss this blog. Why did you, dear reader, make me stay away? It’s your fault as well as Than’s. Heck I’ll even blame Big Daddy as he NEVER reads this site. He’s an anti-crafter. Plus he doesn’t want to know what deep, dark family secrets I’m sharing on the web.
So first off, here’s Izzy & Sky’s YouTube page (it’s also Than’s YouTube page that he makes of his different plush toys doing goofy things that only a 9 year old boy would get). He has fun doing it so I say, “film away!”. If you want to just see the Izzy & Sky stuff you can search the videos on our channel using the words “Izzy & Sky”.
Then, of course, I had to come up with an Izzy & Sky FaceBook page. I would SO love if you, invisible internet friends, would check it out and “Like” it. You never have to go back there ever again, but a “Like” would make me so happy. It might make me feel better about my horrible crafting skills if you just take pity on me and “Like” the Izzy & Sky page. No guilt here, nope, none at all (doing the Scooby Doo hurt paw thing…you just have to imagine me doing it to get the idea).
Here are some pics of the birds for your viewing pleasure. Or just because you have to since you’re already on my blog. Either way…LOOK AT THEM! LOOK! LOOK! SEE? SEE THEM?
Izzy’s the white-faced boy and Sky’s got the orange cheeks. We LOVE them. I won’t go into much about them as that’s why I provided why the links to their YouTube channel and the FB site.
Also I’ve been painting a bit. Here’s some pics of those (and yes, as in my crafts, I find things on Google and paint my versions of them. If something I’ve done looks like something of yours, take it as a compliment. And know that I do NOT sell the things that are taken from an idea I saw on the web. I give those away. LOL)
This next one was commissioned by a friend for a dear friend of hers who is fighting a battle against the evil monster cancer. I was so blessed to be able to do this one:
I did this one for our dear friends little girl who has a Hello Kitty bedroom. I still need to get my butt over there and give it to her! I did it earlier in like July and still haven’t taken it over (that slacker thing again):
I also started making neck pillows for family members. Ok so I’ve only made one for me and Than so far, but I fully intend to make one for my mom and anyone else who can provide the material and not care that I’m a crappy sewer.
This one is mine:
And this is Than’s:
Here’s one of Big Daddy’s bday presents: (he’s a HUGE Raider fan)
I have another painting (my first big one) around here. Hmmm (rummages around brain, computer, etc to find it):
Ah! Here it is!
I figure that’s enough of the picturepalooza. And hey, I’ll try not to let another zillion.5 months go by before sharing the weirdness that is me.
