Amigurumi is...

...the Japanese art of knitting or crocheting small stuffed animals, typically cute animals or inanimate objects endowed with human characteristics. The pervading aesthetic of amigurumi is cuteness (kawaii). Typical amigurumi animals have an over-sized spherical head on a cylindrical body with undersized extremities.

hot mess on Xmas Eve

My monster lab.  There are dozens of monsters just waiting to be made... I'm getting tired of the mess. I guess that will be my weekend project - organizing the mess.  Unless something fun comes up instead.  (hint hint everyone)

Was supposed to go to the Mazel Ball with a friend tonight (an Austin Christmas Eve tradition), but it's super cold outside so we decided to skip it. It would have been my first time going.  (I thought it used to be called the Matzoh Ball?)  I have a couple of monsteramis I need to finish anyway - Xmas presents for the fam.

Hope everyone stays warm tonight!

bottomless mimosas + monsteramis = FUN!!

Xmas is almost here and I finally sold ALL of my monsteramis! 

I took my monsteramis to brunch at Union Park last Sunday for Norm and Rochelle's birthday and they were a big hit.  Drunk people love to buy weird stuff.

Little Ohno found a home with Josh and Tammy after displaying his pole dancing/money making skillz. haha
