Hello my fine feathered Minions. I realize it’s been a while since we talked. I assure you I haven’t forgotten you. We’ve had a series of sicknesses followed by events followed by very important thing to do followed by hangovers and chores and such. It’s not that I don’t love you, it’s that even the dead have to sleep sometime.
I also realize it’s been a while since I showed you some of the wonderful items that would make acceptable offerings should you wish to please your master. First up tonight is this Badass Tactical Tomahawk. I’m not sure what I might need one of these for, but I figure if I have it and then discover what I might need it for, that’s better than not having it at all.
Good evening everyone. There’s about 10 minutes left of 2013 so you have time to scroll through some of the best weirdness of the year. Take care and enjoy this evening’s festivities and I’ll see you all back here in January for a return to the abnormal.
Happy New Year!
Happy Krampusnacht! Continue reading
This year we had heavy storms and a 100% chance of rain for Halloween. Thankfully the rain passed and everyone was able to enjoy Halloween the way they should. However, lots of stores ended up with extra stuff than they would have had the rains not come.
The day after Halloween, Walgreens sells all their leftover stuff for 50% off. Usually this is all it takes to get rid of most of it. This year, though, I ran into one that still had a full aisle of stuff at 75% off. Look at all the loot I acquired for right at $20!
They also had a lot of candy, but I ate most of it before I found my camera.
Today we have a guest post by Claire Thomas. Claire is a lean mean crafting machine. When she’s not whipping out everything from jewelry to repurposed furniture she is gardening with her daughter.
Three of the best things about Halloween include candy (duh), costumes (double duh) and an excuse to wear strange and / or creepy jewelry. I’ll show you some of my favorites I’ve seen around Etsy, and give you the creative option to make them yourself.
The Full Halloween Moon Necklace
This one will require just a few supplies. Bust out your jewelry making pliers (Wubbers makes the best set), black (half hard) wrapping wire with a chain to match it. You will also need any orange flat, circular bead. A yellow vintage button might work too. First, leave the wrapping wire uncut so as not to waste it. Continue reading
Some of you know that I often have guest posts published over at Dumb White Husband. That’s because the site is awesome and I’m honored to be featured there. Ben, the original dumb white husband wrote a serial about how dumb white husbands deal with the zombie uprising. Dumb White Husbands vs. Zombies: The Zomnibus is the collected parts of the serial. I haven’t read it yet because I’ve had too much on my plate. But if it’s like any of his other books, I know it’ll be hilarious. I’m going to hit Ben up for an autographed copy. The rest of you just click the links and buy books until you run out of money. Do it now. Continue reading

What springs to mind when you think of decorations for Halloween? Maybe you’re looking to decorate the front of your house to attract trick-or-treaters or spook up your lounge in preparation for a ghoulish Halloween-themed party?
