The Hilarity of it All

Dear Blog,
I have not forgotten you. I have just been so busy. I think about you all the time... truly I do... But, what with my store closing (yesterday), the TTIC design team submission (I SO WANT IT!), babies, and Joel McHale... I just haven't had a whole lotta time. You understand, don't you? What? Wait a sec Blog.... you don't know who Joel McHale is? From The Soup on E! No, no, no... it's not called Talk Soup anymore! It's just The Soup. Joel is the host. Best host the show ever had really (sorry Jim!) . So yeah, Gene and I saw Joel the other night in Westbury... what? How was he? Freakin' hilarious Blog! uh? You wanna hear about it? But I was busy giving you an apology for not using you lately... ok OK!!! I'll tell you about Joel! Geez...

Mr. McHale is a tall, lanky guy who is I believe part Finnish (which makes Gene very happy). This lank of his just adds to his comedic nature. He started off Sat. night talking about all things Soupy. From stupid Spencer (does anyone really watch that mess of a show?) to of course, his arch nemesis Tyra. Now picture this... the Theatre at Westbury is a small space and the stage is round. So the bit of bouncing he does on The Soup has now been brought into the 3rd dimension (no not only because he was standing in front of us live), because he's now bouncing and leaping around the stage to give his whole audience a good look at his... well, all of him I guess... So that alone was funny. But then he goes in to other things, like the mysterious bees that keep appearing on stage dying (what's up with that Westbury???), and his grandmother who apparently hates his show. His iprov is amazing (freaky dying bees on stage... come on!), and Gene and I were hysterical the whole time. And then Mr McHale bagins to talk about his 2 sons. Now, if I wasn't a parent with kids around the same age as his, maybe I wouldn't have thought this part to be as funny... but my goodness! Gene and I were crying because we laughed so hard! His older son has an obsession with lights... just like Phoenix. He also appears to be a genius puzzle master although he for some reason he cannot keep his own saliva in his mouth... just like Phoenix. Is this funny to you Blog? Just thinking about it is making me seize with laughter! This guy is ridiculous. We would see him again in a heartbeat. We laughed more with Joel than we did with George Carlin (yes, we got to see him live too!). Blog, do you have some free time? You should go see a Joel McHale show. He's amazing. And if you don't believe me... just ask MagicKat. She'll tell you the same thing. GO SEE JOEL!!!!!

Ahh, thanks Blog. I feel so much better now.

I ADORE JOEL MCHALE! How completely amazing that you got to see him live! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE HIM! I never miss The Soup. Did he mention Spencer's creepy flesh-colored beard? It sounds like you had a great time!

yay - joel WAS awesome. i loved how his act just bounced around from the show to tyra to ryan to his kids to grandma without any sense of structure - it was just like being out with him to dinner and having a random conversation moving from one crazy topic to the next.

all hail joel mchale! WOOHOO!!

February Smeared & Smudged Sketch Challenge

The new Smeared & Smudged challenges are up and ready for you to participate in! I got instantly inspired by Kelli’s card sketch for the month, as I have been working with different ideas for my next “Tarot Card.” Haha! That’s actually pretty funny! If you’ve been checking in over the past couple of weeks, you may have seen my Misty Benson Tarot Set 1 ( Smeared Ink ) cards. I’ve used The World and The Fool so far. Today, I bring you Death. Don’t worry…it’s actually a joyful image…one that I intend to use a lot! First, here’s the sketch. I flipped it and changed the ribbon and embellishment a bit. Can I just start off by saying that it is quite nerve wracking to slice your image??? I have done it a few times in the past, but I always get butterflies when I attempt it again. I colored the image and the card itself using nothing but Distress Inks and my Cut-n-Dry Nibs. My skull button at the top has been colored with Alcohol Inks.   The colors look a little off to m

Christmas in July with Imagine Crafts & Stencil Girl!

Hello! Have you heard? The Imagine AIRs have been hopping with Stencil Girl! If you have been here before, you know I loooove me some stencils, so this collaboration was very exciting for me! The teams are hopping for 3 consecutive Saturdays, and this is week 2. I have the entire list of hop links at the bottom of the post. Be sure you don't miss anyone! I decided to to create an extra large gift tag with my new stencils. Using red cardstock, I taped down the Journal Texture #8 Stencil  and inked it up with Golden Glitz Delicata ink . I promise you, this is the BEST gold ink you will ever use! The Journal stamp only has 2 diamonds on it (it's a 4x4" stencil), so after I inked up the first pair, I moved over the stencil, lined it up, and inked again. Next I wanted to do something textural with the Urban Insiders Star . So I took some evergreen cardstock, taped down the star, and slathered on some yummy Iridescent Green Creative Medium . After the medium dried, I ga
