This Time Tomorrow

What is it about me that people find so comforting, maybe they think I'm as sad as them, and so they are drawn to me, and all that comes along, I've died before, and I don't regret it, I'm glad to be born again, and the people around me that are depressed, dead, lonely, hurting, it seems too much. If I can help, that's enough to make me happy, but all too often it seems as if people just want/expect me to be jaded enough to give them permission or something. I don't want anyone to die. I want everyone to be happy. I may not have happiness built into me, but i would never wish that on another. i lack that, but i'm not a fucking robot. i'm hurt, too, and i do not want this. i have ears, and they are open, but when we're past that, i don't understand what's left. trust me, it hurts. Please be okay, i am love, and you should be too.

King's Crossing

So, my mom had surgery, and I stayed at her house and took care of her. Oh, and I made a thousand hats...

It rained last night. It was amazing, i hope the season brings much more. This morning everything was all soggy and fantastic. It reminded me of Chris. He would have loved today. After work, I walked out for coffee and smokes. It was getting dark, and i walked to the corner where Chris had written so many of his songs. I miss him, and when i sit there, i almost feel him with me.

Today's song is brought to you by The Kinks... It is love.

She's Lost Control

Recently the world's been spinning without a second for the breathing part. I've started to wonder how anyone manages to make it through life without being an artist. Is it possible that artists are the only people that feel the need to express themselves in a way that is mostly magic, partly insincere, and often condescending?

Often times i feel it crumbling before my eyes, right through my fingers, and i'm unable to catch it, or even define what it is. i find it hard to relate with people who are not artists. And even more so, i don't consider all artists on an even plain... In no way do i consider myself stuck up, i guess i am elitist at times, but i love those that are willing.

Drinking, i have found a way to release myself, i may not be the artist that i once was, but if you want to hear about it, i have some ideas... the drunken ramblings of a mad woman may be slightly too much right now...

And speaking of madness......

Today's song is brought to you by the best ever Joy Division. If you are not familiar with them, I highly recommend that you go buy "Unknown Pleasures," or christ, even the best of, Joy Division is what dreams are made of, and in his short life, Ian Curtis became a god. Okay, that's enough from me...

Projects! Projects! Huzzah!
Here's some little sillies...
This next guy is heavily influenced by some of my favorite crafters. She is made of fabric scraps and old pants. She's about 2 1/2 feet tall including her legs. I don't have a photo of her after she was finished yet, but she is done, and that will be posted soon.
Her name is Myrtle. Shs is an octocatowl. She loves staying up late at night, and wearing pretty dresses. Her favorite band is Shonen Knife...

Bear hat!
I made this for work, but I don't think I want to give it up. The pattern's from Stitch N' Bitch Nation.

We recently had an adventure at The Biblical Gardens. It was quite magical...

We've also been going to Meri St. Mary's radio show, The Underground Sound on KVMR every other Wednesday from Midnight to 4 AM, it can be streamed live at KVMR.com. If you get a chance, try to listen to it, she plays some really good psych and punk rock...

Oh, and one more thing... We'll be in San francisco from Jult 15-19. Get your party hats on...

Caleb has an art show starting on the 16th. That night we will be attending a show at The Eagle on Howard. Meth Teeth and The Oh Sees will be playing, and we are all very excited.

And what's going on in S.F. on July 16th and 17th? Oh, The mother effin Renegade Craft Fair. I could not be more excited.

I've been disgustingly busy recently, so I haven't been posting at all. This will actually suck because i don't have any photos uploaded of the things i've been keeping busy with. A lot of embroidering, and some knitting. Oh, and listen to this!!! I started drawing again, and i even attempted writing. Mostly all failed attempts, but, whatever. Feeling more neurotic than usual, and with the same going-ons as usual... i don't really know. Chris' death has really saddened me. My world is moving abnormally fast around me, and i'm just at a stand still. i really hate it. i will fix it, eventually.

Subterranean Homesick Blues

Okay, moving onto some other recent craftings...
A hat! A bright pink hat made out of the delicious "Burly Spun" yarn that I love so.
Some felted pin cushions...
A fabulous "Artfelt" project started by myself and the lovely Natalie...
I need to get a picture of the finished product, it turned out amazing!
I made these little cuties for my art room, oh and here's what it looks like, our creative space...
We'll end here today with a lovely picture of my little princess Mildred and myself...

Norwegian Wood

Oh holy jesus! I've been doing a lot of crafting, and I will now finally get to posting some of them...
I'll start with my recent Beatles inspired crafts.
John Lennon Embroidery
I was inspired by someone's deviant art drawing of this. The original, of course is from the "1" album.
This is a slightly funckt shrinky dink, but it turned out kind of psychedelic looking...
...and The Beatles Quilt... Not quite a triumph yet, but I'm working on it.

I like your boobs. They're very friendly and unpretentious.

If you have never seen The Science of Sleep, and we are friends, I recommend that you do so. Especially is you saw and enjoyed Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, because this is kind of on the same path, but I think it's far superior. So, yeah, watch it. Oh, and also watch Wrist Cutters- A Love Story. It's super cute. Okay...

The Science of Sleep

Wrist Cutters

So that's it for now, hopefully I will have craftings in my blog soon. I've been doing a lot of it. lets see, I have about 8 WIP's right now, it's fucked...

Happiness is a warm gun...

Well, my life for the past two weeks has been completely consumed by The Beatles...
John, specifically. This post will be an obscenely long list of my favorite photos of John Lennon.

Superficial Love

So, it's been a while since my last post... I've been knitting a lot, and now that Christmas is over, I don't have to worry about gifts as much, except for your blanket, Rachel!!! Which is more than half done, geez, it's taking a while. After doing a custom hat recently, I have once again fallen in love with knitting hats.

As you can tell, I have perhaps been watching too much Gurren Lagann lately(Which is a totally amazing anime, and I recommend you watch)...

The blue hat is called "The Spiral Cap," and is from a Vogue Knitting book...

They are so quick to do, and they're not easy to mess up, which is nice... Lets see, I will be attending TNNA (The National Needle Arts Association) for work in San Diego this weekend. I have to catch my plane super early on Friday morning. But then I will be in S.D. for 4 days all by my lonesome... Fun stuff. I will remember to take my camera with me for sure!

Today's song is brought to you by TSOL, enjoy!
