Death of the Landicorn…

The stupid horn is broken. They didn’t pack it very well and sent it UPS. I’m PISSED.


Also, the Landicorn might have a scheduling conflict so he might not be at the party on Friday. While I am heartbroken, I am also sure that he’s going to end up wearing it somewhere, somewhen.

In other, less candylicious news: I’m trying to do some screen printing before Valentine’s Day. I’m not sure how well I’m going to do at getting stuff made up before the holiday, but I know that this particular t-shirt slogan (as well as the others I have lined up) will be great for Mother’s Day so no worries.

For now, though, I need to go look after the meatloaf I have in the oven. ๐Ÿ™‚

Project #2 for the month: Landy + Unicorn = Landicorn

There’s this friend of mine who has, for reasons I’m not sure I understand, agreed to be dressed up like a unicorn. In public.

It’s going to be awesome. It’s going to be at a party. And it’s going to be because I am totally willing to spend my time and money embarrassing a grown-ass man.

The fabrics at left are what his beeYOOtiful cape will be made of.ย 

And because unicorns are so phallic, he will also be given a horn made of candy. Any and all will be encouraged to lick it, hahahahahahaha…

It’s going to be a big party full of DJs and ravers/former ravers. I suspect that a candy horn that tastes like “strawberries and giggles” will be well received.

Even though it’s at the home of my photog friend I will still be compelled to bring my camera and document this. Just because.

It’ll be awesome.

I’m a neglectful person…

Okay the themed posts really were not my thing. I’m not that person, that person kind of creeps me out even.

As a general business update: I have kept up with tradition in that I broke my sewing machine making Halloween costumes. It’s in the shop. Woo! Once I get it back I’ll probably take my old machine in and get that fixed too. Just so I have lots of backup for the next time I screw stuff up. In the meantime, I have a teeny little Singer I picked up as a stop-gap measure. The model is even called the Quik Fix, how appropriate is that?

I’m playing with fun color combos for the Hello Kitty hats. This will not be a white Christmas.

I have a new local friend who is a pretty great photographerย and I will hopefully be able to enlist him in helping me take product photos. Or at least telling me why he thinks my existing ones are sub-par and give me tips on how he thinks I should process them. ๐Ÿ˜›

There are some fun fabrics I’ve picked up that I’m looking forward to working with.

Honestly, my business has not done as well this year as I would have liked. I think this is mostly due to personal issues that have prevented me from being able to focus enough energy in this direction. I’m hopeful that now most of these have been resolved (well, I guess having a 13 year old won’t be resolved until he hits 14… and that’s likely to be a whole new issue) I will have the time and sanity to put my love of making things higher on my list of priorities.

Oh Toto!

Look what I made!
