What I’ve been up to lately…

Apparently I have contracted SARS. I noticed all the various syrups I have collected and decided to take a picture today.

Buckley’s: This is some random stuff that Hairy picked up when he went out for cough syrup. Apparently its motto is “Tastes real bad, works real good.” It is sugar-free and alcohol-free. It tastes like a burning hot mess of yuck. And it doesn’t work very well. Hairy also made me breathe it in with steam. It burned my eyes. I do not recommend. He took a picture of my face underneath my towel and steaming hot bowl. My eyes were squeezed shut and my mouth was open, taking in the steam. It looked like I was being born.

The Chinese Cough Syrup: This is some syrup that my mom used to give us when we were kids. I don’t know that it works very well, but it tastes GREAT. It has loquat or kumquat syrup in it, as well as other minty type things. Manda insisted I take some, so I did. Can’t hurt.

Robitussin: The old stand by. I’m not sure that it works very well. I got the long lasting 8 hour kind. I took it before we took Bibi to the dog park, and then we came home to eat dinner and I passed out until midnight. I would say it lasts for 4 hours.

Prescription Stuff with Codeine: I picked this up last year when I had the SARS cough. It’s been really hard for me to get a good night’s sleep and I was hoping that codeine would knock me out. No such luck!! Woke up today with 1/4 of a Ricola drying out my tongue.

Vapo Rub: I just picked this up today. My mom is also sick and has been using it. I am desperate. I will try anything. I gooed myself up with this a few hours ago. I’m a little disappointed it doesn’t last very long. I’ll goo myself up again before bed time and hope for the best.

In crafty news: I have been making stuff for my cousins in Hong Kong this week because my parents are going there next week. I’ll take a pic of my girl cousin’s scarf tomorrow. I’m not sure if I can finish my boy cousin’s scarf in time, unless he gets back to me. I made him a video with questions. God bless technology! This is yarn that he picked when we visited him in Vancouver. He asked me to pick the biggest baddest blue button I could find. I haven’t been having much luck with good blue buttons! Also, sorry about the SARS coughing.

I am a terrible knitter. I had to google how to cast on, and I remembered the rest. The neckwarmer he saw for $70 was knit, so I wanted to knit his as well. Ah well. It’s the thought that counts, right?

Happy Easter!

Hey Gang!

Just wanted to let you know that all my chocolate bunny pins are sold out!

But there is one more cool thing on eBay that you can buy: a one-of-a-kind Glazed Ham scarf with detachable pineapple rings. I’m really proud of this piece, and I hope you love it!


Home is where you hang your Deerhead.

Hairy hung up our plush deerhead today. We are working on a “kitschy urban forest” theme. Baby steps!

(Sorry if the images cut off. You can click on any of them to see the full picture.)

Hairy also covered a few things in astroturf:



And yeps, that stump and the mushrooms are by My Paper Crane.

This is a commission felt-applique hoodie I made for a boy: It’s a Fire-breathing Wordicorn.


And finally, here is a preview of my real quick Easter eBay. Um, Easter snuck up on me and I had NO idea that it was in MARCH!!! DOH!!!! Anyway, I will post few cute things tomorrow-ish with some Buy It Nows for those who absolutely need things before Easter.


More Bibi on YouTube!

When a lot of people see Bibi, she is going crazy and acting like a lunatic because she gets excited about seeing people and other dogs. I guess I just also really appreciate how mellow, sweet, and loving she is, which then makes me totally obsessed with filming her when we’re at home.

Here we are from today, after I made mini English Muffin pizzas and after she had a sardine snack. I am sure our breaths were really delicious. For a while she is on my lap, obsessed with eating her own foot. About two minutes in, we hold hands, and then at the end, she tucks in for a napplebee.

I will be posting up some old buttons and tees, and NEW hoodies and SWEATPANTS as soon as I learn how to edit my own webstore :).


Hello hello! x2

Hi Gang!

I hope you all get a kick out of the new website design. I had a few giggles while drawing it, I must say!

In the past, I had been blogging at Livejournal where you can scroll through some past entries, but I will be updating more right here from here on out!

Here is a pic of some pins/brooches I finished last night and will be posting on the site when it goes up!

And just in case you missed it on LJ, here is a short video clip of the cute astro-turf doggie ramp that my guy Hairy made for our pup Bibi since her little legs were too short for her brand new doggie door!
