Scarydad’s December Wishbook

Ah, it’s that time of the year when I accept offerings from my beloved minions. Every item in this holiday wishbook is something Scarydad would like to own. But in the rare case that you aren’t shopping for me, you can help keep it scary by clicking on one of the links and do your Amazon shopping as normal. If you buy anything at all on Amazon after clicking through, Scarydad receives a commission. It doesn’t cost you any more than normal, I just get a few coins for patching you through. Merry Krampus!!!

Hey there my good and faithful. I’m back!

I’ve been a bit busy with multiple projects of late so this one is a throwback. I made a bunch of stuff back around Christmas and thought I’d lost the sd card. Well, I found it so game on. Anyway, this is a wood-burnt Krampus plaque I made for my buddy Chris. Not sure who Krampus is? I say you should Google him an be amazed. This was part of a challenge to do the most awesome present you could possibly do for less than $2.

I won.

Wednesday Weirdness

weird (4)


Hello my beloved Minions. I must say that I thought I’d be doing more writing than I am but I’ve been busier than a one-legged man in an ass-kicking contest. The leg has healed very well, thanks for asking. Just a couple of scars mark the spot.

So, yeah. This past couple weeks have been busy. Every time I sit down to write, something begins leaking out of someone around here and it’s old Scarydad to the rescue. I haven’t been in the shop, or at the keyboard at all. I hate to leave you all so neglected but we all knew what was coming.

Sequel and Spawn are doing very well, however, and Bride has recovered nicely. We are settling in for a bit of a whack-a-mole Christmas, because that’s what it feels like we’re doing most of the time. I assure you that I’m still around and that I have no plans to go anywhere. It’s just a profoundly busy time right about now.

So, enjoy your weekly dose of weirdness and I’ll see you when I can. Continue reading

Scarydad Lifehack: Christmas Tree Funnel

Christmas Tree Funnel

Have a live Christmas tree and hate having to water it? Me too! You have to move all the presents, take multiple cups and attempt to get the water poured just right and not spill any. It’s not a difficult task, but it’s no fun. You could even say it sucks.

There has to be a better way!

Well, there is and today I’ll show you how to make one for about $3-$5 worth of materials instead of the $10 plus $5 shipping (Seriously!) devices found online.
