I made myself this little purse and wallet with my yeti, and had some requests for more. And then a wonderful new friend suggested an online store. So now you can buy my stuff if you were ever interested! I have two stores, but one is not open yet because of a small complication. But meanwhile visit me at:
I will have all my designs on there, and you can get stuff like this cute little yeti on bags, mugs, shirts, sweatshirts, etc. I am taking requests too!

Okay, blogger has been giving me some major problems with pictures. Sorry about the absence! Hopefully these pictures are showing, but if not, please let me know! It takes awhile for me to upload them, so for now, I have a smaller post of my Valentine's gift. But tomorrow night, when I have more time, I have a major yeti post coming for you all! MAJOR.
Until then, enjoy my Valentine for Kevin, my fiance! It was quick gift, but oh so fun and special!!
Blank Check is about the lamest movie out there, I know. And if you are wondering why I chose this case or why I didn't decorate the outside, there is a reason! We both loved it when we were kids, and the first time he ever came over to my house to meet my family, we watched it that night upon finding it in a box in the storage room. It just so happens that our first kiss was during the movie. (Lame!)
Everything is made from recycled material found around the house and leftover scraps of paper, so I spent no money on this whatsoever. It turned out pretty cute, I thought!
It also has some hidden meanings. The little charm with the snow flake represents our song, Love Like Winter, by AFI, which is the song Davey Havok, the lead singer of AFI dedicated to us; Kevin proposed to me to at their concert and had the band in on it!
The Mickey Mouse charm represents how we met. I wear a Mickey Mouse watch everyday that I have worn since I can remember. He noticed it one day and asked me if I had read The Da Vinci Code because of a reference to a Mickey Mouse watch and that led to a 3 hour long conversation.
And then the quote: "If I gotta be damned, you know I wanna be damned, dancing through the night with you."
Upon our first meeting because of the watch, I also just happened to be drawing a picture of Meat Loaf, my hero, on my biology notes. Kevin now has it framed. So Meat Loaf brought us together! And then the dancing quote fits for the fact that we dance in the living room Pulp Fiction style almost every night. lol. Freaks.
And lastly, I make cards for EVERY holiday but this year I just ran out of time. I wanted something to put with his gift so I revised my Christmas card into a Valentine card. It works because I love yetis almost more than him. ;)
Add some candy and some adorable crocheted turtles made by my amazing friend Shannon and voila! Valentine's Day! I hope you all had a wonderful love day!

This is the supply closet of the renowned cryptid hunter, Loren Coleman. Spending years and years tracking the elusive creatures of the unknown world of cryptozoology, Dr. Coleman has become obsessed with tracking some of the most famous cryptid creatures. Unfortunately, Dr. Coleman has become so fixated on finding these critters, he has neglected his office and supply closet leaving behind him a mess of newspaper clippings, evidential findings, and forgotten equipment. But most notable of all in this disorder and chaos is a certain trickster cryptid crouched down in the corner, hiding from the world. Oh Dr. Coleman...if only you realized Bigfoot is not elusive...he is just a shy prankster. I know I said I was posting yeti stuff, but it is not quite ready yet. Tomorrow! Besides though, bigfoot is a cousin to the yeti, and this was something I made for myself (for once) after making an extremely similar one for a swap partner. I liked it so much, I knew I had to have one. Hopefully she doesn't read this, but if she does, oh well. Hers is a little different, and she already knows she is getting a cryptid cabinet. :) It is made from a small curio cabinet and JUNK. Yes, more junk. I did not buy one thing for this piece. And tons of it was stuff I have saved forever, knowing it would come in handy someday. Sorry for such a long post!
I will be posting a bunch of yeti stuff tomorrow, possibly even tonight, so in honor of that here is my favorite commercial ever.

I have made several of these, but for some reason, I only have pictures of two of them. I scored TONS of these bulletin boards at the dollar store for 4/$1.00 which is awesome, right? So I started decorating them with scrapbooking paper and watercolored images. I have done several with people's kids and a few others with different themes. They are so much fun to make and I love personalizing them for swap partners, gifts or commissions. Here are the first two I made:
