How the hell is it Friday?

Hey everyone

hope you are all well, I have no idea where this week has gone...I feel like it has been just a long blur...

seriously does anyone have any concrete memories of this this an x-files like mind wipe phenomenon that we should be looking into.

In all seriousness thank you to everyone for playing a long and rating their blogs yesterday...honestly I was hoping for an R rating....I am assuming I would have gotten one but I did write to the Nancy Drew girl the day I think that bumped me down....I willprobably try and rate my blog again later so I am going to try to make it here goes.

sexy party
Paris Hilton (that should help...she will probably bump me into NC-17)
fist fight

ok...I am going to try to rate it again later today and see what I can get now.

(wow...I really am totally lame you know)

So I have been swamped with artsy stuff lately which has been good, and keeping very busy amidst a trifecta of mini etsy crisis, lost packages, reserved items being ourchased by the wrong person, unhappy customer...and the like...

sigh, so that made yesterday a day where I sent out about 5245274574 emails....I have now solved one crisis and put another behind me...the only one left is the case of the missing packages (oooooh, that sounds like Nancy Drew).

Speaking of Nancy bubs and I went down the street to the little used book store and I found a wonderful old Nancy Drew book, of the same vintage that I read when I was a kid, a early 1970's version with the hardcover...I flipped out and bought it, and then spent last night beginning to read "The Clue in the Crumbling Wall"...then my OCD kicked in and now I want tor ead them all again, so through the magic of Ebay I got three more coming to me soon...but you see I am very specific they need to be the vintage of me as a kid...not crazy old antique or 1990's photo way!!

So this is a mean cheese weekend which means the clock is ticking for me and I really should get to working so I can get stuff done, package things, clean the apartment and do menial chores before she gets here.

are you all going to have wonderful weekends??? DO something fun and drink some whiskey for me.

until later...


oh, images today are a couple new pieces in my shop

Dear (Insert Name Here)

Dear Emma Roberts

You are adorable, I needed to just get that out in the open.

I will admit I was afraid when seeing the Nancy Drew movie that you would be horrible....and very Un "Nancy Drew"...but I was wrong, you were cute.

I have to commend you for overcoming a lot of adversity, being the niece of Julia Roberts...well yes, most people would not think of that as adversity....more a stepping stone, but you see....I am not really a fan of her...mainly I get fixated on her sometimes visible mustache....and cannot concentrate.

So, when hearing that you were her niece, well...I got sort of a pit in my stomach, and kept telling my bubs that it was "not right" that Nancy Drew just CAN'T have a mustache....but luckily you did not.

I was please though that your Dad is Eric Roberts, then I got the fool notion in my head that maybe he could pull some strings and you could be on Heroes for a few episodes next season, hell they could even do a Nancy Drew crossover, and you could be a teen detective investigating the Heroes....wait this sounds sort of pathetic, what I should really be asking is.....will you be doing a Nancy Drew II...or will they replace you with some generic horsey face girl for a direct to DVD sequel???

Now, this is where I give you a little advice, you are a young, pretty, wealthy teen star....please look to people like Claire Danes, Reece Witherspoon, and Jodi Foster for role models on how to survive through the years....I feel my heart would suffer greatly if you were to start having babies and going clubbing with Brit, and Paris....

Don't get all skanky and gutter trash, please...I beg of you!!!

in all seriousness, you are too charming for that, now....I am not going to say you are the next Meryl Streep....that might be saying too much, but you very well could be the next Julia Roberts...and well that is fine with me.

your fan
Jennifer Gordon

ok I am doing another tag but I am cheating...I am not tagging anyone back, take it on yourself if you like, and I hope you do.

the lovely Karen Beth tagged me so here goes....

What were you doing 10 years ago?

ok ten years ago....I was living in NH and less than a year into my first horrible marriage to that no good hippie, I was working a bad job as a coffee slave....I had yet to go to the Institute to study acting again, and was doing nothing creative...just work, and sort of think about what the hell had I gotten myself into with the whole being married and being 21 thing.

What were you doing 1 year ago?

One year ago I was just starting to do well on Etsy so that was exciting in a lot of ways...we still had the comic shop and was working there far more than full time and not seeing my bubs very much so much. I was working on Stiletto Heights #3 at the time and was convinced that I had found a great artist (which he was/is), too bad he had a crap load of mental issues (I didn't know at the time), and also had been arrested for beating up women (something I def. did not know at the time).

Five snacks you enjoy:

  1. Ice creams
  2. cakes
  3. Starbucks white chocolate lattes
  4. luna bars
  5. yogurt

Five songs to which you know all the lyrics:

1 - Two of Us - Beatles
2- You Just May Be The One -Monkees
3 - Jackson - Johnny Cash/ June Carter
4- The Blower's Daughter - Damien Rice
5 - The Entire Soundtrack to Les Miserables

Five things you would do if you were a millionaire:

1 - Pay off all debts (mine and bubs)
2- go to doctor (me and bubs)
3- make sure mommy was ok
4- shopping spree for my bubs and myself
5- make sure the mean cheese is ok

Five bad habits:

  1. Procrastination.
  2. scratching my eczema until it hurts
  3. twisting my hair until it is tangled
  4. self doubt
  5. picking my finger nails too much

Five things you like doing:

1- Shopping
2- Day Dates (and night dates) with my bubs
3- reading
4 - crafting
5 - napping (I am addicted to the nap)

Five things you would never wear again:

1- shoulder pads
2- shorts
3- big wool hippie sweaters
4- stirrup pants
5 - birkenstocks

Five favorite toys:

1 - magazines
2- complete new yorker on cd rom
3 - my peeps (all my action figures)
4- camera
5 - Lord of the Rings sword fighting game

ok...that is that, more of the useless stuff that you all love so much!!! SO with that I will leave you, today is a day of sadness for they let Le Paris out of prison...which sadly means that sweet little Nicole Ritchie is probably one step closer to it...

These are scary times we are living in....scary times.

(as always imagery today is available in my shop)

Shark Week

Happy Monday loves!!!

ok, so maybe not so happy....How were your weekends??? Please fill me in on the debauchery, please.

So I had a great weekend, starting of course with the Nancy Drew date on Friday as well as a leisurely lunch out with drinks...and yes, now that I am no longer in a Nancy Drew frenzy and I am thinking with a clear head...I still loved it.'s a movie meant for children and the dreaded "tweens" I hear so much about...but it was a great movie for what it was, and Emma Roberts (new Nancy) did not even bother me as much as I thought she would. I was really afraid that just knowing that she was Julia Roberts niece was going to throw me off for the entire movie.

So that was how the weekend started...throw in some creating and some alcohol...and it was all fun.

My bubs and I also decided to have "Shark Week" in which all we watch are bad (and sometimes good, but that's rare) Shark movies...our big "living room" space is actually our studio, so we can pop in a movie and both continue to work on stuff (more about what we're working on in a minute), so this weekend we have seen...

Jaws (the original)
Jaws II (good, not great but good)
Jaws III in 3D (I think the best part of this one is every time there was a oart that should have been in 3d but wasn't my bubs sort of waved his arms about and said in a monster movie voice...3d...........3d...........
Jaws IV (this time it was personal...this is the first in a long line of smart shark movies, where the sharks hunt you because of who you are...not just because you are food.

we also saw...Red Water which starred Lou Diamond Phillips and Coolio...I think this was actually a made for TV movie, it was awful and there was a shark in a you know it was bad.

ok, so I spend the weekend making things for my shop, as well as brainstorming with my bubs and coming up with ideas for.....our WEB COMIC...yes you heard it correctly we are going to have a web comic... it is actually the "Petite Heights" strip that was appearing in my Stiletto Heights comic, but we are doing tons of new ones....I say we, but in reality it is my bubs doing 85% of the work, I am the muse and the one that makes the people say what they are supposed to say.

I am the Stan Lee to his Jack Kirby (if you get that then you are a big geek like me).

So, now your wheels are spinning and you are thinking to yourself...where will I be able to read this wonderful thing....well sillies, it will be right here on my blog....It will be published on Sundays.

I am not saying it will start this Sunday....maybe next though, but I did want to give you a little heads up.

ok, enough of a ramble for now....I need another cup of coffee and I need to start packaging pieces (note the alliteration)

Tomorrow I will entertain you with a tag...oooh I know you can't wait more useless Jenn trivia!!

Bad Boys...Bad Boys...Whatcha' Gonna Do

good morning everyone.

How are you all now that Friday is here???

This week has been a strange one for me...I have been abnormally anti social online, so to those wonderful people I usually chat with and e mail with...I am sorry I have been MIA, there has just seemed to be so few hours in the day to get everything I want to done....but as of right now I am "caught up" sort of.

so I am hoping to be more sociable next week.

One thing that has been eating up a bunch of my time is....spying on my neighbors, yes I said dpying on my neighbors.

you see.....there was drama the other night at Chateau Hillbilly next door....

it was a quiet night when all of a sudden I notice a large group of police men outside...what the hell?????

there were 4 of them, 3 cars and 1 paddy wagon....and they were pounding on the neighbors door.

of course my bubs and I were 1 part freaked out, and 1 part really excited, you see I have always wanted to be on the show Cops, as the disturbed neighbor of a white trash couple....and this I felt was my shot, but tv crew.


anyway my bubs went outside to "take out the trash" and then tp "get something out of the van"

my bubs is so cool, he very casually asked the police "is everything okay?" and there answer was no...they asked what was up with mr hillbilly and my bubs said we had not seen him since about midnight the night before when he was outside...drunk.

the cops talked to mrs Hillbilly and then left....there was no sign of the Mr.

So, this made me get my Nancy Drew on.....I have noticed many odd clues...for a couple days their little girl was not home, and the Mr's vehicle is gone and he was no where....but now I know he is back, I saw him briefly with some other guy as they dashed into a car and then quickly dashed back in the house.

They are never outside anymore (they were always outside) and none of the doors or windows are open, and there are no lights on....even though I can hear them bumping around inside.

see....drama....I ahve a ton of versions of what I think is going on in my head....

crazy huh?

so you see between working etc, I really have been preoccupied, it's how I get when there is a mystery afoot.

any theories? I would love to hear them.

so do you all have wonderful plans this weekend? I plan on eating ice cream and making stuff...but that is what I always I am also hoping that I can go see the new Nancy Drew movie this weekend, though my bubs in adamantly against it...he knows I love all things Nancy he might cave in.

I have been making lots of new pieces for my shop, and also hopefully to Bring over to The Frame Station as well as another new place that wants some pieces....oh also, I will be getting more pocket mirrors in my shop this weekend, none of the older designs will be made again but there are a ton of new ones, and lots of "tree" themed ones, as I got a lot of e mails about the tree mirror I had before.

ok, that's enough of my babble...have a good weekend watch for a possible Saturday Night Sale in my shop too.

Dear (Insert Name Here)


after...and yuck

Dear Jessica Simpson

what in the hell happened to seriously I want to know.

Now, ok, the dumb blond virtual Barbie thing you had going for you was a tired and sad routine, but it worked for you...big boobs and big hair and saying all sorts of dumb things,'s how you became a mega star after all.

(please don't kid yourself and say it was your music)

In fact the big hair and big mouth thing was enough to overshadow your creepy Dad/manager for a while...except for that time in an interview he talked about how awesome you big double d boobs were...seriously that made me ill.

So anyway...the point is how did you go from being America's favorite bimbo to what you are now.

You look like a leather wallet, it's not normal to be brown all over like that, and to top it off look tired, and more than a little used.

Right now there is this vibe coming from you like you are the crazy girl with no self esteem at a frat party...and you will have sex with all the frat boys there just so they "like you".

Seeing as The entire world is your Frat Party....well I guess that explains the tired and used look to you.

Now, I will say should have stayed with Nick, he loved you even though you were part moron...he saw past that...or maybe he ignored it and focussed on those big boobs your dad talks so much about.

Tuesday is the new Monday

hi all

hope you all had a wonderful weekend, sorry for the no bloggy blog yesterday, you see I took a much needed mini mental health day...and I needed to be anti social to get everything done I needed to.

I worked from 8:00am-10:00pm last night making things and packaging a million things as well, after a shockingly good weekend on Etsy (I sold 30 things in 2 days!!) .

Thank you all for the compliments on the mirrors as well, you should see them in person, they take my breath away with how nicely they were done by kittycrossbones, (seriously she is a wonder!!). A lot of the mirrors sold already but I do have more to list as well so keep you see out.

ok as a type this it is a little after 7:00am and I am sitting in the cool of my air conditioned room, soon I will have to brave the heat and go into my working room to paint before it gets too was 97 here yesterday....and you can only imagine what it is doing to my's no good.

We even broke down and went to the grocery shop last night for some Frozen Yogurt...while there waiting in the checkout line, I noticed that they have spirited up the joint with various "gift baskets" I use the quotes and if you could see me I am rolling my eyes as see these horrible things can only be described as "Ohio Gift Baskets"...seriously one of them was 2 bottles of Budweiser (in plastic bottles) 2 plastic cups, some processed meats in sausage form, but they were not that is definitely not a good sign, it also had 2 plastic cups and some peanuts.

I was is that something that would pass for a gift basket....I know with it being Father's Day and all that is probably what they were going for, but my bubs had a good point, guys don;t want a gift basket....nothing with clear cellophane and a bow....please.

So that horrible meats and beer monster is probably what passes as a wedding gift here.

sigh.....we need to move to a better part of town.

seriously it makes me feel a lot less classy to see things like this, in fact it almost outrages me, can the 15th largest city in the country be this overrun with white trash hillbillies, I honestly wonder this.

ok, now I must brave the heat and humidity and work a bit before it gets to be 100 degrees...I will be cathing up on all your blogs today (promise!!!)

photos today are some new pieces, and mirrors...the search function on etsy is all messed up so it is sort of impossible to see the new pieces now, this is something I am trying my hardest not to stress about I know they are fixing it but at the same time...this is my job so not being seen makes it hard.

oh well, I promise tomorrow I will be very prepared with a great celebrity letter.

until then

Taggy Tagerson

so a while back PeachPoPs was nice enough to think of me during a bout of tagging...since then I have been bogged down with other ramblings and tid bits of have not gotten to it, but today....yes today dear readers you will all be treated by reading 7 little known or weird things about me.

I will not be tagging anyone back but....if you would like to partake in the tag please do, and if you would like to tag others, well the more the merrier I say.


1- When I get excited about somehting I scream, not overly loud but not quiet's hard to explain but those of you who have known me in real life know what I am talking about....I do it when I hear something funny and humiliating about someone, or is someone hands me a present.


my bubs- I have a box of Twinkies for you


It's a sort of child like and strange habit to have especially coupled with my VERY loud laugh...this is warning to all of you who might want to hang out with me in the future...especially of there is alcohol involved.

2- I collect comic book art work, a lot of people don;t really know what this means, but I collect the artwork that they make comic pages of...and I collect commission sketches of my favorite characters etc. Some of my favorites include a daily Spiderman strip where MJ talks about being a movie star, I also have a page of a Spiderman monthly where Peter is watching a sleeping MJ, and it is so beautiful.

I also own a a page from Strangers in Paradise as well as a commission sketch from the artist, AND....a wonderful strip from an old 1950's romance comic where a mom is giving advice to her daughter about not letting your self get old, ugly, or fat...because your husband will leave you.

(I wish people around where I live would listen to that advice as I have been advised on countless occasions to have a baby because then I could "get as fat as you want...and he can;t leave"...UGH, yet another reason to hate Ohio)

3 - I have NO maternal instinct at all (don't get me wrong, I love the little "mean cheese" but the thought of birthing a child seems so scary and alien to me)

4- Even though I have horrible diseased lungs and I no longer smoke...every time I see someone smoke, for a minute I just think "God, that looks so cool", I know how awful it is to say, but I still miss smoking even though it's been years, AND even though anytime I am around second hand smoke I realize how gross it is.

5- I am really, really, really, good at air scary good.

6- I have been hypnotized several times in order to try to remember my past lives (typing that makes me seem like a crazy person I know)

7 - In the past I was a magicians assistant and there for know lots of tricks and how they are done...but I will never tell!!!


ok now that is all over, thank you for reading. Ok, so this weekend we will have the mean cheese so I really need to get to cleaning up the apartment and "mean cheese proof" everything I hold dear!!

keep your eye out this weekend for my Saturday Sale as well as the possibility of the pocket mirrors getting here!! Until then I am showing a new piece that I will be listing later in my shop, it is called "Yours is The Only Face I Remember"

happy Friday everyone!!

when is the last time I did work?????

good morning!!

Thank you to all my New York readers who read through my pile of hate yesterday, it is all tucked safely away inside my head again, so no fears.

How are you all?

So yesterday was a day off for Keith and I...well day off being all relative as there was tons to do, but there was also a bunch of time that I spent on the couch reading comics...

so this is how the day went.

Got up, wrote hate mail to Derek Jeter as my bubs got ready to go meet the UPS man and get our comics before heading to the old comic shop to see if they need help (they didn't...YAY) so he came home, we went through our order, dividing up what is just his, just mine, ours, and our friend Steve's. Once the division was done I noticed that on top of my pile was Strangers in Paradise #90...the very last issue of that book...ever.

This is when I start crying a little. I go to the couch and read the book, tears in my eyes the whole time....none of it even sinks in, so I have to read it again, then fully calm down, then read it one more time.

It was beautiful and a part of me will die every time I think that it will never come out again.


We then read a bunch of other comics in a big binge (I never said I was not a dork). Once done I gathered up a small group of collages and headed over to The Frame Station to drop off work.

Once outside I realize it's hot...yucky hot...ugh.

So we make the trip over and once we get there, well I want to make an ok impression on these people, so I turn to my bubs and ask what I always ask..."Am I shiny" and his usual reply "I don't know what that means" (it means for the my nose shiny, so I need powder). I flip down the mirror and yes...I am shiny, in fact I am good.

I quickly powder and we head hair is both fuzzy with humidity and flat with, no no!!!

So I get there and the owner Melinda is wonderfully nice, and I also get to meet in person Megan from Moogan's Creations. Now, I read Megan's blog so I know she is funny, and smart, and I have lurked in her etsy shop so I know she is talented...but I did not know how adorable she would be...and there I am, with fuzzy flat hair, and all sweaty.

(yes, these are the things I think about)

So, work is dropped off, and then my bubs and I are on to the next errand, picking up prescriptions at the Pharmacy...and the usual "No, I don't have insurance" and the pity look from the pharmacy.

I know, I know, I need insurance but you see, I'm a starving artist.

so we head home for a bit, a late lunch and then I head over to the comic shop to meet Steve so we can be geeks for an hour or so...I know our conversations are probably only interesting tot he two of us, but trust me they are VERY interesting to us.

then Keith comes to the shop and we hang for a bit...he is going back and forth about playing at the Treehouse, he wants to and he doesn' see last week was not fun, and it was so hot...we would just go to bed.

But, we decide to go, hell...I could use a drink and I know he could too. SO we get there very early so we can ease into the night and that way my bubs can play early in the night and then we can leave.

So several drinks into the night I have this profound realization while reading the personals in the "Other Paper", more specifically I am not reading the Men Seeking Women, or Women Seeking Men, or Men Seeking Men, Or Women Seeking Women.

no I am reading the best part of the newspaper...I am reading "Other Variations" such as this little gem

"BABY ME, cross dressing adult baby willing to try anything new, open minded and willing to please"

or this

"Old Fashioned Spankings mature discreet PWM will administer to women of any age for discipline, stress relief, or pleasure"

I could go on and my thought was, if the art thing does not work out, that I could read these ads to the blind, maybe that is my calling (or maybe that was the whiskey drinks is hard to say).

So my bubs played first and he was wonderful, and as we were about to bolt out of there, we noticed that the next act was not just a sad man with a guitar, but a three piece band out of Montreal (love the Canadians!) with a stand up base and a laptop.

we were intrigued so we stayed are were treated to the sounds of "Ghetto Pony"

they were fantastic, seriously I cannot rave enough, we even bought their cd. They were just 3 skinny white Canadians playing the coolest geek rock I have heard in well, forever....picture Weezer but more funk to it.

So you have to go to their myspace and listen to them, for serious...they are that cool.

After that we meandered home...long day.

Today there are things that must be done...I must package stuff, I must make new things not only do I really want to but my shop looks sort of sad right now.

Oh, and for those of you interested in pocket mirrors, they were shipped out yesterday which means they should be here on we have the mean cheese but I might be able to list some on Saturday night, watch the blog for more details, I will lit a couple each day.

OMG this post is so long, I am dreadfully sorry but I am very wordy today...ok truthfully I know I should be working out but but if I am doing this that means I am not doing that.

no one likes to do Cardio when it is already very hot at Chateau Stiletto.

sigh...big giant sigh....

oh, and the picture today was a pendant I made a few days ago, it is for sale in my shop, and it is Virginia Woolf

Dear (Insert Name Here )Week 15

(** all my New York readers, I am very sorry you have to read this, please keep in mind that New York is still my favorite city in the entire world, but....I grew up in New England so there is something that takes over inside my head during Spring, Summer, and Early Autumn...and that thing that takes over is pure blind hate....for the Yankees)

Dear Derek Jeter


I found myself the other day inadvertently having to look at you during some stupid tv commercial for Diet Coke or some such nonsense....and immediately after seeing you I began to spew just a pure bile of hate.

I am normally not like this, normally I love most people, I don't eat meat, I am friendly to the environment....some would even call me a hippie....but I hate hippies so don't call me that.

Now I am not driven to violent thoughts very often, sure I go into a rage when I see a baby or small child in a nice restaurant (hello if there is no "kids menu" leave the kid at home), but that is normal, yet when I see you I immediately get very dark and twisted in my head.

I fear that if it was possible I would kidnap and torture you, keep you at the bottom of a well and send lotion down to you in a bucket, like in Silence of the Lambs, I can hear myself shouting to you in a throaty and scary voice, "Derek rubs the lotion on his skin or else he gets the hose again".

I am not one of those blind Rex Sox loyalists who will say you are not talented, no....I admit you are and it is one of the reasons I loathe you, but what really gets me, what really drives me over the edge s how you always seem like you're not even trying.

You're up at bat, and your chewing gum and looking all around and barely paying attention to the pitcher...same thing on the field.

What the hell is up with that? Is it the fact that you are just so f-ing good at the game that you are almost bored with it.

My bubs and I had a theory that the Yankees bought A-rod just as amusement to you, a high priced "bitch" if you will...

it makes sense, I see how he looks at you, his eyes all big with awe and fear.

Also...I blame you whole heartedly for the brain washing and hair cutting of Johnny Damon, one of my former Red Sox boyfriends...he is now dead to me.

I hope bad things happen to you, I hope the Yankees crash and burn this year, I hope A-rod gets sick of your womanizing ways and in a jealous rage does something that means you would be out for the rest of the season (don;t get me wrong, I don't want him to do permanent damage...I am human after all).

until next your back back Jeter.

Go Sox!!
Jennifer Gordon

Monday Monday


How was everyone's weekends? Mine was wonderful as can be...with the exception of huge car repairs and the like.

Friday was an odd day, my bubs did not go to work due to the fact that there was a strange and dangerous sounding noise in the van, so he brought it to the shop only to find out that the thing that stabilizes the van and keeps it from tipping over, had broken and needed to be repaired, the mechanic basically said had we taken a corner going over 40mph we would have thank goodness he caught now we are safe...but our little wallets have gotten a whole lot lighter.

I spent the majority of the day finishing up a commission project for someone (please see photo above), it is 18x18 and I really love the way it came out, right now it is hanging in our apartment waiting for it to be paid for and it is just lovely.

When Friday was all but said and done, my bubs and I watched the news and weather and saw that all impending rainstorms were no longer threatening the we decided to go for a walk, and actually enjoy the ghetto park next to us. You see the park next door is all trashy but it does have beautiful bike trails through the woods, and like Central Park once you are on the trails there are moments when you forget where you are, it's just so desolate and lush...even the birds sound more wild and the brush is thick and jungle like.

So we were meandering through the trails something that I really dare not do alone as it gets pretty remote out there, we were about a mile or so in when all of a starts to rain (of course) so we turn around, the rain is nice and soft, very refreshing....through the trees it is wonderful, and then it starts to down pour and the west nile bugs were out in much for a lovely walk.

Saturday most of the day was spent working and then when my bubs came home from work we decided to walk to the grocery shop, that walk was rain free!!

Sunday though was the big day, we went downtown to arts fest, it was HUGE, I mean really HUGE, miles ans miles...though in true Ohio fashion I bet if they removed all the places selling deep fried pork something or other and fried dough products it would have only been half the size.

overall it was fun just to be out by the river, I was disappointed that there were not more local artists, and really there was only one place that made me just ache all over with how wonderful it was.

Now...this is where I would love to show you some pictures of what I bought, but my bubs has them hidden away as they will be birthday gifts for me. But...they are beautiful, two photos, black and white with portions colored. They look like everything that my dreams are...they are that fantastic.

One of them is a woman along the harbor at Carnivale, fantastic mask, very surreal and beautiful, the other piece I got is a photo of a window at Bergdorf Goodman's the display are 3 beautiful Marie Antionette inspired mannequins...I know I am not doing them justice, but they are amazing.

so after being outside so much of the weekend we stopped for Mexican at "our place" on the way home...and then when we came home we promptly fell asleep for a nap...we were eventually awakened by the dreadful neighbor girl screaming her fool head off, for a second I though she might be being murdered...but no, she was just screaming for no reason.


so that in a nut shell was my weekend.

Oh, I do have news though, thanks to very loyal blog commenter Moogan/Megan, my work will now be carried at "The Frame Station" here in Columbus...

so giant shout out to Megan, who I will have the pleasure of meeting in person this Wednesday when I bring some work in for them.

So, this is the deal...all you loyal lovely blogettes and blog misters, if there is anything you wnat from my shop let me know and I won't bring it, I will hold things and accept payments on things as well.

Oh and one more last piece of shop news....Later this week there will be small pocket mirrors/make up mirrors available in my shop. I ordered them this weekend and am already so excited for them to be here, There will only be 1 done of each design, so once they are gone...they are gone (please see the photo above for the designs) there will be 15 in all, well probably more like 14 as I think I will have to keep one for myself, right?

They were made by the same wonderful woman who made my buttons, kittycrossbonedesigns

If any of you decide to place orders for anything, tell her I sent you!!!

ok that's all for now, tomorrow I will be posting some exciting blog news and I believe I was tagged a while back for something that I never did....I should get to that too.

now I must get to work I need to make a couple things and have a long day and night pf packaging to do as well.

Friday, June 08, 2007


woo hoo, Friday is here....though in all honesty that doesn't mean very much to me now that I work at home and my poor bubs works on Saturdays so it is not the beginning of the weekend for us...

but anyways, I am babbling.

I hope you all have wonderful plans this weekend, mine include finishing up a commission piece and perhaps going downtown to the arts fest this weekend.

so in lieu of the fact that yesterday I was supposed to package a bunch of stuff but instead watched Project Runway and looked through Fashion Magazines (can you believe yesterday I got 4 more magazines in the mail)...I am having a very lazy post today....just basically this and a bunch of pictures of new pieces.

I know I know I am a dreadful bore....

ok truth is I don't want to be online when I could be watching tv and waiting for the Press Conference about the possibility of Paris Hilton going back to jail.

ok, are you happy got me to confess.


ok, and for those who might be interested I am marking down a ton of pieces in my shop to make way for even more work....yes, my apartment is getting over run with all things me.

so, stock up on gifts for others and yourself.

have a happy weekend...and it's official, only one more week until the new Nancy Drew movie opens, and I am so excited.

Because I Am Spolied Rotten

What a wonderful bunch of celeb letters yesterday, I particularly felt a connection to Moogan's letter to Kathy I have been thinking all of the same things about her poor plastic ridden face.

ok moving on from there...

How are you all? I personally am a little worse for wear today after deciding last night (late) to head over to the Treehouse to watch their open mic, my bubs was up in the air about whether he wanted to play and basically decided that if he could get on sometime around midnight it would be a go...alas by the time we showed the first slot was we just settled in with our friend Ken and decided to stay and watch him perform his punk rock new wave set...which we had never seen, and was by far the highlight of the night.

You see, last night was one of those nights that everyone who performed with a few minor exceptions...all seemed miserable, playing that "I'm too cool to care about the audience" card...all on stage, eyes closed and lost in some sort of haze of was sort of sad...until our friend Ken got up and played and though his music was crazy and unlike anything anyone was hearing there...he was enjoying himself, he was actually...dare I say...smiling.

Oh the the horrors....maybe he did not get the memo that you are supposed to be ultra sad in order to be taken seriously...

When did it become wrong to have a good time, to enjoy what you do? Why and when did jaded hipsters become the status quo?

ok, speaking of being happy.....last week a certain bubs (that would be my bubs) decided to get me a present for hitting the 1000 sale mark...he gave me a choice, either Season One of Beverly Hills 90210, OR Season one of Project Runway....


hiw can he make me chose between those two, it was like damn Sophie's Choice, it was that difficult, so in a moment of pure emotion I sort of screamed out "Project Runway"

really looking back it's a no a 90210 junkie and a total "Kelly Taylorphile" (new term I just made up) we all know that the good Kelly stuff does not start to happen until season 2.5, the summer she and Dylan hook with Brenda in Paris.

I know, I know I am so lame....

so back to my point, I chose Project Runway, and when he got home from the store, there was a bonus surprise....yes, another gift for me, it was a video game called "Designer's World" and sure it's made for 8 year old girls....but it looks so cool.

The point of the game is to design a fashion collection, hire your models, and have a fashion show in NYC, Milan, and also have to make sure your line is doing well in stores etc.

Um, hello....that is awesome!!!!!!!!!! I have not opened it and hooked it up yet, as I know it will consume my whole world once I do.

The other day I also experienced the very rare "Mail Orgasm" you see I placed an order with my very favorite magazine crack dealer, Jody for some Japanese Vogues and Japanese Elle....but with my order she threw in a bunch of other mags too...

and I thought I was in heaven...but that very same day I also got a large box in the mail as well, my bubs giving me the look that said "what did you buy"...but alas...I was shocked too. You see I got a wonderful surprise from a dear blog reader and internet bff Tara.

This care package was filled with....Foreign Fashion magazines (drool), Griffen and Sabine Postcards (AAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!), A kick ass 90's mix cd with like all my favorite Euro Brit Pop bands, some cards, some candy, and most importantly of all, a very nice long letter...I stayed up late that night very slowly going through all of the goodies from Jody and then from Tara....listening to the Smiths and the Judybats and everything felt so right.

so....with all of this cool inspiration being thrown at me....I have been working like crazy in between going out and the the photos today show just a small portion of the goodies, as well as a mixed media box that I finished yesterday that is now posted in my shop.

Oh, I have babbled enough for today...catch you all tomorrow.

Dear (Insert Name here) week who cares it's my 200th post

Dear Dame Victoria Beckham (aka Posh Spice)

ok, I may be jumping the gun by calling you "Dame" but really let's be honest, the damn Queen will knight and dame just about anyone these days, so I am guessing sometime next year you my dear will be "almost" royalty....good job on marrying up you by the way, I doubt that I would be saying this had you not given an heir to the Beckhams.

I am going to say some mean things, and you just need to know from the very bottom of my Spice Girl aching soul...that I do adore you.

In fact during my early 20's when the Spice Girls were H U G E, you were always my favorite, in fact me and the rest of my foxy and not so foxy rolodex all called dibs on which Spice Girl we were...and I was all about you baby. You see my overweight and overbearing bff at the time was "Ginger" so it seems fitting.

I chose you because ever then you knew how to wear clothes, and wear them you did.

When I heard you and Becks were a thing....well I knew I had made the right choice for as my fantasy Spice.

All this being said, I am left really wondering...what the hell is up with you lately? Have you seen yourself?

First, what is going on with the boob job? And honey, in all seriousness can you PLEASE eat something!!! Becks is not going to stop cheating on you no matter how thin you get. Right now, you look like a manorexic trannie trolling the streets of LA looking for some poor doofus to pick up, and by poor doofus, I mean Eddie Murphy.

Your hair...your porr beautiful hair, let it grow out, get rid of the blond it does not make you look more "LA" it just makes you look weird. Oh, and one more huge piece of advice....I know you are living next to the Robots Tom and Katie and their strange little alien not, I repeat DO NOT get sucked into that circle of the bizarre, please, I need to know your safe. I don;t want you to look like a robot like Katie.

Wait, what am I saying, you already look like a robot, but not in the Stepford wife kind of way...more like a sex bot gone all to hell.

Clean yourself up darlin, and start hanging with a real power couple Brad and Angie.

Jennifer "Posh" Gordon

(that's all for now loves, you have just finished reading my 200th post, someone throw confetti at me and crack open the champagne and post some letters for me to read)

And The Winners Are...

Happy Tuesday Everyone....ok, last week the incredibly talented Gillian nominated me for the Thinking Blogger Award...thank you Gill.

So now it is my turn....I have to nominate 5 others and leave a comment on their blog telling them I nominated them. is a disguised tag of sorts, but we all know how much I love tags so here goes...many apologies if I have nominated you and you have already been nominated.

Alex Richards - alex's blog makes me laugh like crazy, and it makes me think about important things like, if I HAD to marry a member of Hanson who would it be...and why. You know the important stuff.

The Boob Lady - um...I think the title of this blog says it all right? In all seriousness everyone thinks about boobs, whether they are a man, woman, gay, doesn't matter.

Mr Aaron Cochrane of Funky Carter - I know, I know...I can hear you groaning now...sorry Aaron, but you do make me think, about things like what I would do if my apartment was attacked by Zombies and crap.

Jewelstreet - love Aimee's blog, especially her "home improvement roundups", not like I can do any improving in my little apartment but I like to think about it, and it's the "thinking" bloggers award, not the doing award, so it counts.

and last but certainly not the least...Lisa Gabrielle from Jungle Dream Pagoda- because this lovely woman gets me all dreamy when she does her monthly vintage fashion magazine.

happy covert tagging ladies and esteemed gentleman. that is done, how are you all? I am now on day 4 of my diet...and can I just say, I want to have cookies for breakfast, but I won't...because we don;t have any....but I want some anyway.

So tomorrow is sort of a big day here at my little will not only be letters to celebrities day...but it will also be my 200th post, can you believe it? I am going to have to think of someone spectacular to write to....I would hate to let you all down .

So the images I am showing today are pieces I listed in my shop yesterday, the one above me is called "And Just Like That, She Closed the Door"....again, I would be totally f-ing lost in life if it were not for foreign issues of that photo came from an issue of Russian Vogue I snatched up off Ebay for a steal.

The on the bottom is titled "She Waits For Me, Year After Year"

With that I will leave you all, I need to save my brain juices for a killer letter tomorrow (crosses fingers).

Shop stuff and other tid bits

Happy Monday everyone!!

Yes, my bubs and I survived another mean cheese weekend, complete with lots of rain...though we did manage to get her our and about to the park a few times...thank god.

Though the unfortunate thing is that the park we live next to is being taken over by horrible "elements", such as drug dealers, and foulmouthed trashy folks...

I know I know, I am a total snob but here me out...this is a little snippet from the park yesterday.

(set the scene, we all went over during a break in the weather...there was no one first)

SO after a bunch of time of us watching the mean cheese as she runs amuck, we notice an enormous pack of people shambling to the park...this pack includes 1 young mother, who is fat, bitter, has dirt all over her, and is wearing flip flops, a white tank top, and white capri pants...the pants were not supposed to be lycra and tight but she was big, so that is how they looked.

She had in each arm, a baby wearing just a diaper (gag) and trailing behind her, are two girls one small on slightly larger...both wearing bathing suits, and NO shoes (um, hello....this is the damn city), there was also a couple more children lollygagging behind.

She gets there and immediately plops the two diaper babies in the baby swings gives them each a lackluster push and then sits on a big kid swing and starts to smoke a cigarette...

big bathing suit girl goes to the tire swing, and little bathing suit girl is calling to the white clad beast that she wants to be pushed.

Little bathing suit: hey get over here and push me

Big Fat Mean Mom: I'm not pushing you bitch

Little Bathing Suit: I;m not the bitch, your the bitch.

Big Fat: no you're the bitch

Little bathing suit: no you!!!!

It was at this point that my bubs and I gave each other "the look" and we walked was one of those moments that we thanked whatever powers that be that the mean cheese is deaf and special needs so she has no clue what just went on.


So that was my Sunday...complete with a post mean cheese trip to the Barnes and Noble, as I was aching for a new magazine...luckily they had a new issue of Flair, a wonderful Italian fashion magazine with an English supplement so I can read the articles instead of just looking at the pictures, which I am known to do.

ok, so you are probably wondering what the pictures are at the top of this post...well my dears they are some of the images that are in my new....Button sets.

I am so excited, they are up and available in my shop as we speak, they made their little debut on Saturday night.

Can I tell you how geeked up I am about them....I seriously can hardly believe that they are mine, they came out so beautifully, and they look like candy....and we all know how much i like candy....

oh, and here is something, I am on a diet...yes loves it is that time of year (ok I should have started sooner) but I am really trying to watch what I eat, as my sweet tooth is killing me, well maybe not killing me but making me larger than I should be...

so no more eating cheesecake and ice cream for dinner...sigh, I know I am going to miss it too, I really am.

ok, and one last bit of news before I end this long and rambling is the link to Carla's photos she took of my art that is hanging at Scribbles

ok, tomorrow I will really and truly post my nominations for the Thinking Blogger Award (I know you are all anxiously awaiting,'s like the blog Oscars you know.

until tomorrow
