Speaking of "Walruses Can't Skateboard," I've opened up a Zazzle clothing store, thanks to Brooke's awesome suggestion! I haven't had much time to play around with it and create products, but feel free to browse what I have in my shop so far! The American Apparel shirts are especially comfy and have a flattering fit for all figures (infomercial, much?).
I'd like to start selling t-shirts with some of my illustrations on them (and not just because Ms. Meatball requested! hehe), but I can't seem to find a decent supplier that offers a variety for an affordable price, rather than just one shirt in bulk for a gazillion dollars. I don't want 100 shirts with a walrus on a skateboard, I want several different types of shirts with a few of each to start with until I can find out which designs are popular and more marketable (I want a golden ticket!!). I've tried doing iron-on transfers in the past, but the quality always deteriorates with washings. I can't afford to tackle silkscreening t-shirts on my own, and my illustrations are too complicated for me to attempt to use my Gocco. Any suggestions, or should I just give up and sell my doodles on fanny packs?
This is a handmade card I just made to send off to Kathy Davis Studios, a local greeting card design group (and yes, that's mistletoe headgear he's wearing). If I wasn't already taken, I'd totally smooch this little guy under the mistletoe. Speaking of bunnies, our rabbit Willie Nelson is on antibiotics for a foot injury and I have to give him oral meds twice a day. He lucked out with some kind of fruit-flavored medication and gets so excited to be cradled and have medicine time, it's so redonkulousy cute. Now that I'm married, I think my maternal instincts are supposed to kick in, but I just want to foster bunnies forever and leave the dirty diapered babies for someone else to clean up after hehe. That probably makes me a bad person, but if loving bunnies is bad, I don't want to be good!
I couldn't resist the Mrs. Claws costume at PetSmart, especially since it was half off.
That is one sassy lady.
Betty White hates having her photo taken, but I do it anyway.
Our Martha Stewart Christmas tree, with all of the wrapped goodies underneath.
I'm so excited for Christmas and eating Holiday Oreos nonstop in front of the fireplace. 11 days left & counting!

Here are my six non-important things/habits/quirks:
1.) When my hubby leaves to go to work in the morning, I still don't have to wake up for a few hours. Even though he always locks the door when he leaves to go to work, I am insanely obsessive compulsive and insist on staying awake until I hear the door close, so I can scurry up and double check that it's locked. I have no idea why I'm so paranoid about the door being unlocked because we live in a fairly safe neighborhood, but I can't fall asleep without knowing for sure that it's locked.2.) When I'm depressed I Google photos of baby animals and it always cheers me up. When I'm REALLY depressed, I Google photos of depressed animals to make myself feel less alone. You have no idea how reassuring a depressed polar bear can be after a bad day at work.
3.) If I go more than two days without tweezing my eyebrows, an entire rain forest full of creatures grows on my forehead and before I know it, my eyebrows are no longer a plural part of my face. It's absolutely exhausting and I'm not even Italian.
4.) I am completely terrified of merging on the highway and will drive hours out of my way on back roads to avoid having to merge. I don't mind driving on the highway once I'm on it, but having to actually get on scares the bejesus out of me and I am usually sweaty and shaking when I have to do it.
5.) When I start a project or artwork, I will work until I'm going cross-eyed in the wee hours of the morning to try to get it done because if I don't finish something in one sitting I almost always put it aside and never bother finishing it.
6.) After I watch a terrible movie, I always IMDB it and read the discussion posts to make myself feel better because it means I wasn't the only lame ass who wasted an hour and a half on it. My most recent awful movie experience was Untraceable. Colin Hanks, I will never forgive you.
I'm going to be a rebel and ignore the rules about tagging fellow bloggers. Let me know if you post this on your own blog though!
