Ladies Love Cool My Imaginary Boyfriend!

Hi All!

The boyfriend has been mentioned in not one but 2 blogs this week! Woo Hoo!

First, the Fashion Plate Shadow Box was mentioned over at SF Indie Fashion.

And the logs have once more been shown the love over at Jenny Jen 42's blog.

OH! And a little while back the Robot Bride & Groom were featured on the lovely in an article featuring 13 crafty robots. Sorry I didn't mention that before. . . spacey me. . .

Well, that's it for now. . . talk laters!

Catching up. . .

So to catch up with the list from a few weeks back. . . first. . .

I bought a bike! OH! And I got a haircut!
Bikes are fun!
And I've been riding it!
Riding right at ya!
Though I must admit that riding it in my current physical shape puts a medley of Queen's Bicycle Races and Fat Bottomed Girls in my head. Hopefully that won't be the case for too long!

Second. . . Screenprint birch logs! Check 'em out!

Third! The most wonderfully wacky, strange thing I've ever found in a thrift store. Found at one of the many lovely Goodwill stores in my town.
Strangest thing I've ever thrifted. . .
It's just a ceramic unicorn head. . . what's so strange about that?
Well. . . how about this
Strangest thing I've ever thrifted. . . Part 3
What's more. . . he's not just painted on there, he's part of the mold! And then the artist who painted Santa added a whole level of creepy to the odd. Here's a close up. . .
Strangest thing I've ever thrifted. . . Part 2
He looks like he's been on a 2 week meth binge! And what's with that pink thing on the bottom, which isn't made better by the fact that he's apparently squatting. . . poor Santa. . .
Strangest thing I've ever thrifted. . . Part 4
There were 4 of them. . . I love thrifting!

Finally. . . Robots!
Maker Faire 2008- Robots!
and Doctor Who monsters!
Adipose frolic in the flowers!
If you want to learn how to make them, check out my Crafty TARDIS post!

That's all for the catching up. . . Next post. . . Maker Faire!

I know I've been remiss. . .

It's been chaos here!
Why, what ever can be going on Erika? Well. . .
As I said before I've been frantically getting ready for Bazaar Bizarre at Maker Faire which is this weekend! Yikes! and Yea! all at once.

I'm looking forward to the show and hope it goes well. Things here in MIBF HQ have been rocky of late. . . rejections, failed projects, and a general confusion have been the norm here, I'm afraid. Hopefully all will rock and things will once again be shiny.

AND! Maker Faire is full of clever, cute, geeky boys, something sorely lacking in my life these days. If you know any of these boys, and they're single, point them in the direction of the Bizarre, booth 52!

Well, that's all for now. . . best to sleep before I head up North tomorrow morning (going up early to hang with my BFF baby Griffin and to FINALLY get my hair cut!).
