Day 350 – FABRIC CHALLENGE

CRAFT CORNER DEATH MATCH!!

THE THEME: FABRIC CHALLENGE

I think I gasped out loud when I saw this fabric at the thrift store. I mean, sure it’s fun fur. But it’s SHERBET fun fur. STRIPED, SHERBET-COLOURED FUN FUR.

I mean, what could possibly possess someone to design this, let alone produce it?

oh, right. Drugs.

Anyway, I purchased it knowing it would be the most fabulous fabric challenge ever. Also, I’m mean.

The woman at the thrift store counter asked me what I was going to do with it, her tone of voice no different than if I’d been purchasing a bag of dead cockroaches. “I’m sending it to some friends!” I said brightly.

She replied, “Don’t like them much, do you?”

But I knew they’d be up for the challenge.

UNICORN!

For this theme, there are three other competitors:
The Harpy!
Yermits!
Sarah Apple!

Day 349 – CELERY!

CRAFT CORNER DEATH MATCH!!

THE THEME: CELERY

I admit, the first thing I thought of when this week’s theme was announced was the fifth Doctor. If that sentence made no sense to you, then you’ve been missing out on some amazing television.

But then I remembered the best snack that has ever existed.

That’s right, mother-effin ants on a mother-effen log. Behold the deliciousness:

yum!

As a side note, while you can make this with peanut butter, the true ants-on-a-log aficionado knows that it’s best with cheesy cheese spread (we use C’est Fromidable! but you may prefer another brand). Just like everything else in this world, it’s better with cheese!

For this theme, there are three other competitors:
The Harpy!
Yermits!
Sarah Apple!

Day 337- Yermits vs Robots: FABRIC SWAP

YERMITS VS. ROBOTS VS APPLES: BATTLE OF INCOMPREHENSIBILY CUTE THINGS, OR MAYBE THINGS DRESSED AS OTHER THINGS WE DIDN’T REALLY TALK ABOUT WHAT TO CALL IT.

This is week twelve! The Theme: Fabric Swap.

This week Jenny and I swapped some fabric, with the caveat that one had to use the fabric in this week’s entry. Here is the amazing stuff I got:




The possibilities! I thought and thought and thought, but there was one idea this fabric kept screaming at me:

This dude looks totally legit! Let’s buy our car from him!




Here is Jenny Yermit’s sparkling entry:





Pink! sparkles! I love the horns, I love the sweater. It’s adorable! And I’m sorry that fabric shed all over your room. But… pink sparkles make it all better, right?

NEXT WEEK: did we have a theme? fairy tales? odious people? pet peeves?

DAY 334 – Yermits vs Robots; Living in Canada

YERMITS VS. ROBOTS: BATTLE OF INCOMPREHENSIBILY CUTE THINGS, OR MAYBE THINGS DRESSED AS OTHER THINGS WE DIDN’T REALLY TALK ABOUT WHAT TO CALL IT.

This is week nine! The Theme: LIVING IN CANADA.

Did you know? I totally live in Canada. It’s like living in the United States, except that we have universal health care and we’re polite. ZING. Or like living in Britain, except their national hero is Dactor Who, and ours is David Suzuki.

Oh yeah, AND WE RIDE POLAR BEARS TO WORK. NO REALLY. IT’S TRUE.

Mine is named Horatio.

And no, we don’t all live in igloos. That’s just silly.

Here is Jenny Yermit’s totally Canadian entry:

Canadian to the core. Donuts! Hat! Mitts! Boots and shorts all year!

NEXT WEEK’S THEME: TBA

Day 326 – Yermits vs Robots; Werewolf vs Vampire!

Last week, I met someone who is totally awesome: Jenny, of YERMITS. Since we are basically in the same field (making things dressed as other things), and since trying to explain our work to others leads to confusion (“wait, are they real robots? You…. dress them up?”), we figured it was

TIME.

TO.

WAGE.

CRAFTY.

BATTLE.

I introduce you to:

YERMITS VS. ROBOTS: BATTLE OF INCOMPREHENSIBILY CUTE THINGS, OR MAYBE THINGS DRESSED AS OTHER THINGS WE DIDN’T REALLY TALK ABOUT WHAT TO CALL IT.

This is week one. The Theme:
SPARKLY VAMPIRES AND SHIRTLESS WEREWOLVES.

Or, as I prefer to refer to the Edward/Jacob phenomenon: Team Necrophilia and Team Beastiality.* Look, I can’t help it. I just prefer that my vampires don’t sparkle. I mean really. ANGEL didn’t have to sparkle. SPIKE sure didn’t sparkle. And Oz was a cute little werewolf with bad fashion sense. Thank goodness he didn’t take his shirt off, I would have died from laughing.

*it’s funny because it is uncomfortably true

Edited to add:

JENNY HAS POSTED HERS TOO! HOORAY! Check out the awesomeness at her blog. Here’s a peek:

Excellent! Please do check out her blog to see more photos.

Also, Jenny has contributed a sweet prize to this week’s YVR; a set of four buttons to one random commenter!

NEXT WEEK’S THEME: YOUR FAVOURITE DOCTOR

Day 317 – Puppet Bot

Look at it. Just…. look at it. I’m tempted to carry it around and let it talk for me for awhile. Time to brush up on my (non-existent) ventriloquism skills!

I should probably post a video of it in action!

Bot 298, the Super Secret Project!

Well, dear readers, it is February, it is 2010, and I promised you that at this time I’d reveal my secret project. I actually finished making her on January 20th, so I’ve had some time to take appropriate photos for you.

May I introduce to you, the Baby Bot:

Now you all know why I’ve been so cranky. I know it’s customary to spend a bit of time here talking about the specifics of birth, but I think I can sum it all up in one word: UNPLEASANT. Actually, let me revise that: PARTICULARLY UNPLEASANT.

So here’s the catch: babies are ALOT OF WORK. Look, I know they are relatively tiny, but they do this crying thing, and they’re always wanting something. Wah wah, I need food, wah wah I crapped my pants, wah wah I’m too tired to sleep, wah wah Glee isn’t on until April and I’ve already watched all the episdoes TWICE. Seriously, my twittering is starting to suffer.

At this point, I won’t be able to continue two bots a week; I’m not sure if I can even manage one a week without them all being essentially the same (sleep deprived bot, very sleep deprived bot, bot who now knows they will never sleep again).

However, I’m going to try one a week, possibly with some other blog posts thrown in- but I’m not making any promises about the posts being cogent, or the bots being on time. And baby bot totally counts as this week’s bot, suckas.
