It's Oregano, I Swear!

Hey You! I got 3 things to tell you!

1. So I'm in the middle of working on my toy for the Plastic Chapel 'Custom Toy' Show, and it's a lot of serious sculpting, painting, and toy-making. I absolutely LOVE creating toys, it's always been one of my passions.

I made a 'Panty Rain' Munny for a custom Munny show 2 years ago, and I can't tell you how good it felt to create a toy that has it's own little peep show.

His accessories included: thick glasses, briefcase full of little girl's undies, cell phone, combover, and a tie that slid over to reveal a girl in her undies through a light-up peephole in his chest.

My new toy is a throwback to the 1930's classic toys. So simple and extremely, utterly, sickly, sweetly cute.
I love the idea of no electrical components, no computers, no nothing, just simple mechanics and gravity doing their work. Anyway, if you are in Denver, come on down!

2. So the Gucche got really really really high tonight. Well, ok, I don't know what else to call it! After tea and crumpets, I got out the Cosmic Catnip and rationed some out for the little guys. But The Gucch was so insistant on taking the whole tub for himself.

Debauchery ensued, and my entire 2-bedroom house is covered in catnip and a bunch of pink pipe cleaner squiggly things that they threw around all night. Them kitties is CRAZY!

After that, Gucche ate a whole tub of Chunky Monkey ice cream.

3. I am also excited to show off my hot writing skillz for an e-zine I write for called, 'Cut Out + Keep'. The website is pure genius; a step-by-step craft community where people can post projects! It's like one big giant posting party!
So check out my tutorial about making Burlesque Pasties. I LOVE making pasties. Sometimes when I'm stressed I go to my pastie room and decompress by putting a bag of sequins to serious work.

And my whole contest thing is going great. I'm so excited to give someone some free gemz to get all glamz with, just for leaving fun comments. Good Job readers!
