Hey moms! Want a calendar for you AND the kids!

So, this link and the info about this calendar comes courtesy of my friend HSG. Oh Helen! Why, why, why did you post this. Yep, that's right it's a naked clown calendar. Yes, I'm serious. Now before everyone gets all creeped out and crazy. The calendar is for a good cause. The proceeds go to help fight MS and I think that is amazing and wonderful-don't get me wrong. I think any crazy idea to get your cause out there should be awarded, but clowns...really?
And to make you cringe a little more- one of the questions on the calendar is: Who’s bendy like a gummy bear?. Honestly, I don't think I want to know.

I couldn't see whether or not it was the full monty going on but that might be even scarier.
Enjoy, and hey, if you need a present for grandma and for your niece-grab two calendars.

Pendants and The Scrappy dog society!

So, I am venturing into the land of jewelry and making pendants. I am planning on selling them on etsy and maybe at some shows. I'm pretty proud of them. Not much else is going on in the world of Pam, just trying to play catch up-which I think I am failing miserably at. Also-I am starting an organization (maybe on flickr, maybe a blog) that is going to be Scrappy dogs! You know the kind-if you know my Lola then you know a scrappy dog! So, once I get it set up I will be asking for pictures of your scrappy dogs. Maybe I should make patches for all the members of the SDS (ha!ha!)

The best blog!

If you haven't yet, please check out this blog. I was laughing my butt off tonight. It is a site about cakes gone horribly and humorously wrong. Here are a few of my favorites. www.cakewrecks.blogspot.com

Yes-this is someone's face on a football cake. Seriously, no, I'm not kidding

I don't know why people get so bent out of shape about Barbie's proportions. She seems fine to me

All I can think of is, "Maybe the dingo ate yer baby"

I so want this cake for my birthday, not a full size cake of me, but this exact one. The ego matches the cake.

Redwork Haunted house and other fun stuff...

I joined the vintage Halloween swap on craftster and this is the project I did for my partner. The ghost and the frame are glow in the dark. I hope she likes it. I am very pleased how it turned out.

Also, this weekend was the Safety in Numbers fund raiser for the crisis line I work for. It was a HUGE success. We had it at the Crystal Ballroom and there was a line down the street to get it. I couldn't believe it! I had a lot of friends from Craftster volunteer to donate auction items. All of them sold for crazy sums of money. Thank you ladies for all of your help! Words can not express how awesome you guys are. Mark won a DIY basket with a huge garage heater, a leatherman, and a gift certificate to Hippo Hardware. I won the craft basket which had 4 gift certificates to cool craft stores around the area (I plan on spending them this weekend) and a bunch of fat quarters and a cool bag. It was an awesome time!

Not so fun stuff, I was crazy sick on Sunday and stayed on the couch or in bed for the whole day-luckily I had Lola, Jujube and Kato to keep me company.

Things I'm diggin' right now

Here are a few things I am totally into right now.


King Khan and The Shrines-Fast moving, with some Bollywood thrown in for good measure. Awesome garage band music. It's as if MC5 and The Hives had a baby and went and got some Indian food on the way.

The Detroit Cobras-1960's girl group meets garage, meets, Marianne Faithful.

Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings -FUCKING amazing! If you have not heard them, seriously, go find them now. Think 1960's soul. The Dap Kings moonlighted as Amy Winehouse's back up band. So you might be familiar with them.

Santogold-Awesome beats, sassy, total kick ass hotness.

Conor Oberst-touted as the new Bob Dylan. Just good driving music.

The Beat Farmers-yes these guys are old, and actually a few of them are dead but man, if you like Alt-country, you will love these guys.

Estelle-The song American Boy with Kanye West. Catchy, dancing fun music.

I have seriously been lacking in the new movie department but if you do nothing else in your life. Watch The Big Lebowski-not once but several times. It is the only way you will get it. Best movie known to man. I can watch it any time, any day, multiple times a day. If you don't get it, something is wrong with you.

Getting Ready for Halloween:
Yes, I know it's a little ways off but what a great holiday and so much fun. Scary music, movies, parties. My favorite holiday. Candy, dressing up-what more can you ask for.

My husband: He rocks and if you know, you know why.

Having my hair back to the 1920's bob.

It's a crazy ride, but the dude abides.

So much stuff going on....

My goodness! I have been so neglectful. Life is finally falling into place again and I can dedicate some time to crafting and writing. Some Craftster announcements first.

The Fall Challenge is under way. The theme is "What Falls means to you". The prize is a pendant and a 20.00 gift card to JoAnn's. Posting and Voting will take place in October. Here's the link to the information.


Second, I am organizing the Jar of Whimsies round 3. It is a super easy swap. You should come join!

Last, this month's featured project comes from beelisty. The craftster is AMAZING!

The PWCL fund raising event is this Friday! I'm super excited about it and I think that it will be the best one ever. Everyone's hard work is finally coming together.

And last but not least-I spent Sunday with two good Friends up at Maryhill Museum and vineyard. Great friends, great wine, great works of art. I don't think I could have asked for a better day.

My head hurts

I have a headache and I want it to stop. Sorry I have been so neglectful to everyone-life is so chaotic-when is it not. I just want to be able to sit down and stitch. On the plus side, I finished the pillowcases for the auction and almost finished with the swap stuff. I have some super cool ideas on stuff to sell, so it's all good.
