Since my mood has at last improved,I finally got around to creating this year’s One Eyed Christmas Beast. It may be 2016 now(at LAST), but this is for 2015. You can see last year’s One Eyed Christmas Beast here.
Here he is being welcomed into the family here at Ice Station Eyeball.
Actually, these are some little gifts Steve brought me back from his trip to visit his family in New Jersey.
Visiting our usual haunts of vintage toy stores such as The House of Fun, and new toy stores like The Happy Hippo, yer Uncle Steve brought a delightful bag of tricks home that definitely helped to cheer my mood after having possibly one of the rottenest years of my life.
My friend Lynn has a rather bad kitty named Mike. 🙂
Hope everyone had a lovely Christmas,Hannukah,Festivus,or whatever you celebrate!
Oops, I should explain: no stocking i ever received in my youth was complete without a can of Hershey’s syrup. Uncle Steve now continues my parents’ tradition with a bottle of the stuff! Mmmm!
Well, with all the animal rescue stress I am dealing with, I announced a few weeks ago that I wasn’t doing cards this year. People understood, but I felt bad. I LOVE making cards and I get ecstatic over receiving cards, especially handmade ones. I like to imagine people getting my individually made cards catered to their pets or hobbies or my pets or characters that they like, and feeling special. So, I did it.
I forgot to scan all of them as I made them, so I have been being a heel and asking people to please photograph them for me as they receive them so I can document them. Here are a few–click to see descriptions!
My pal Melanie is a librarian, and loves dragons!
Stephanie is a friend from high school and loves her German Shorthaired Pointer(although I don’t have the color quite correct–it would look like just a dark blob if I had used the right color marker.)
Heidi is a puppeteer friend who makes amazing little sandwich puppets at InJest Puppets.
My buddy I call Dunny thinks Tiny Clude is hilarious so I put him on a card. 🙂
Charles is another puppeteer friend who belongs to the sinister “Death by Puppets” group! 😉
Puppeteer pal Brett does magic tricks with a little rabbit puppet he commissioned from me.
Jill lost her beloved kitty Poppy to illness this year.
I’ve always wanted to do an advent calendar,but this may be one reason I shouldn’t. I got this dinky thing for a dollar,got it home and went apeshit gluing down all the little pompoms instead of doing it day by day. Oops.
Ah,well. Small pleasures.😃
