One of the cardinal sins of blogging is the classic "sorry for not posting" post, so just to be clear, THIS IS NOT THAT.

I'm just checking in to say I'm kind of behind, my last craft failed MOST spectacularly, I have no back-ups, and Dragon Con is this week, so things probably won't be getting better on that front any time soon.

I am... a little frazzled.

Where's a time turner when you need one??

ANYHOO, all that said, I should probably announce art winners and assure you guys I'm still over here, scrambling around.

So without further ado...

The winner of the Groot print is Angie (who has a blog called My Boat).

And my TWO wild card winners (since we apparently gave away the Rapunzel print last year, OOPS, haha, isn't my lack of organization adorable??) are "da_finker" & Alinore.

Congrats, you three, and please e-mail me your mailing addresses!

And finally, just to further prove this is NOT a "sorry for not posting" post, here's the funnest thing to cross my feeds lately -  and yes, today, "funnest" is a word. FRAZZLED. What.


Seriously just the coolest. 
(If you haven't seen his other puppets, go check 'em out! They're awesome.)

I'll try to get back on track soonish, gang, but if nothing else, brace for Dragon Con goodies later next week!


  1. Hey, everyone's entitled to frazzled times! No worries on our account, especially with DragonCon coverage to look forward to.

    In the meantime, that puppet is cool! =-)

  2. Can you show us your craft fail? You do such marvelous work, it would be interesting to see what you consider a failure!

  3. How are the cats doing? Cat pictures are always welcome. [Especially pictures of Tonks.]

  4. Argh. I know from that frazzled: "Lookie: I'm about to start an ambitious tween tech series with two back-to-back 3D pen art programs, and I've just thown out my back and torn a muscle in the hip doing flying shoulder rolls in karate!"

    You are an amazeballs blogger. Kind, honest and brave.

    I hope the frazzelment abated.

  5. OMG THAT PUPPET!! That puppet GUY!! I want to send him piles of money and have him just come hang out at our house so he can show us his un-be-lieveable puppets! I've only looked at this one video so far, and I'm swooning with delight (and his accent doesn't hurt either). Thanks so much for sharing this, and if this is a frazzled posting, all hail the frazzle!

  6. Just a quick comment to say that I won the print drawing one month about 3 years ago... It's *still" the only piece of art on my walls.

  7. Mind completely blown by that video! Seriously the creativity of people amazes me.

    And "funnest" is totally a word, whether one is frazzled or not. :) Don't worry about us in blogland. We can totally wait for posts until after you're recovered from Dragon Con!

  8. Oh my goodness, those puppets are incredible. Thanks for the link

  9. Will you share your fail? I have a friend who was intimidated by your skills & her impression that you have vast resources of cash (instead of just a John & a great imagination!) to make your makes happen. She wouldn't even look at the projects... I think it might be helpful for some makers to see the things that don't always work out.
