It’s not even 8am on the west coast.
To paint this bodice I had to put a bra on a pillow, stuff the bra, put a plastic layer over it all, then put the bodice on it. Hopefully it looks ok for Otakon! #princess #anna #frozen #costume #bodice #velvet

ahhhHAHHHHH I wish my ratties were chill enough to let me put tiny rat sweaters on them! They’ll never stay still enough for me to even measure them much less en-sweater them.
A year ago I got to illustrate one of the endings in Ryan North’s brilliant Hamlet choose-your-own-path book To Be or Not To Be. These are all things you may be able to find outside right now (if you can bear to put down this amazing book).
If you’re looking for an awesome rainy day or ‘It’s way too hot to go outside today’ activity, why not have a go at Barbie doll mummification? It’s all kinds of morbid, geeky fun. Heather and her daughter Izzy started with a trip to the library and some research to create an adorably macabre step-by-step “How to Make a Mummy” list. Then the gathered and/or made all the necessary materials. Barbie’s internal organs and ceremonial death mask are paper cutouts. They used a seam ripper in place of the special tool that ancient Egyptians used to pull the brain out through the nose and a shoebox for the sarcophagus and burial chamber. They also included a tiny toy kitty, because they were sacred to the Egyptians and sometimes part of the burial process.
Visit the Kids Activities Blog for additional photos and a complete description of the Barbie mummification process.
So many Heathers I know would enjoy this! And I would too.
I promised myself tonight that IF I did all the things I *had* to do - exercise, eat a reasonable dinner that was not just eating peanut butter from the jar, paid bills, emailed people back - THEN! Then I could just watch hours of Whose Line Is It Anyway on YouTube.
I love the internet.
