Lily of the Valley and many wee robots!

The Lily of the Valley is blooming! It's my favorite, favorite, favorite flower! So small, dainty, cute and smelling so amazing!!

Also, I got in more robots. I mentioned one in a previous post, but felt she needed some sisters :)

... wait... why are these robots looking at a map of Mordor...

I recently entered the Traveling Bear Swap over at Thimbleprims blog, and here is one of the "bears" I got back in the swap.

Actually, it's a million times better than a bear, it's a stuffed version of The Monkey Queen of Switzerland (which is a nickname I accidentally gave myself)... but this little plush is AMAZING!

She came in the red and white box with all the little accessories shown... because a Queen needs to travel with everything she could possibly need :)

Fireball from Disney

This weekend I went to something called Acen, which stands for Anime Central and is an Anime convention in Chicago.

As per usual, it was a lot of fun... but this year I found something new there... THIS!

This wee robot stands 4 inches tall and is SO poseable! Her hip pivots, her head tilts, her toes wiggle, her fingers move, her elbows, knees, legs, arms etc... everything moves and is jointed and she's so amazingly poseable!!! I bought her not knowing what she was at all... or even that she's as poseable as she is... and my friend who can read Japanese writing told me she's from an Anime/Disney collaboration called Fireball

I haven't yet watched any of the episodes, but I found some on YouTube and will do that soon... but it doesn't matter how good the show is or isn't... this figure is AMAZING! (I promptly bought the entire set off ebay when I got home!)

Rainy Day Jubilee

I LOVE Thunderstorms, and rainy days for that matter... and the prospect of a long roadtrip in the rain overjoys me!

I'm about to head off to ACen, a weekend of anime nerdery, and I can't wait!
I'll update on Monday with my weekend adventures :)

Good Day to you Sir, I said, GOOD DAY!

Well, here's a new concept I'm working on. Not quite pleased with the execution of it yet... but say hello to one dapper little whale!

Plus a birdie illustration:

A weekend of Changes...

First off, I finished the new Harry Dresden book, Changes... and I.WANT.MORE!

Second, I, instead of doing the crafts I had planned, spent the weekend modding the Blythe knockoff I acquired. HOLY CRUD getting her old eyechips out was just about the hardest thing ever... but here are the results:

Remember how she used to look?

Here she is now, I changed her hair, sculpted her lips, repainted her face and changed all her eyechips. *whew* Next up? A New body for her!
