My sweet talented wife decided she needed to use her creativity for righteousness. Last year, around Christmas she started crocheting these great electronic device holders she calls the iMonster. She found this little website called Etsy that facilitates a way that creatives can sell hand-made goods. So she started a shop (her shop) and before she knew it, she was selling her crocheted goodness. I am lucky enough that I was given an iMonster for my iPod Touch. I love it and it keeps my iPod nice and cozy.
The drawing above is my interpretation of my iMonster holding my iPod. Below is a photo of the actual iMonster for those of you too lazy to click on her shop and the original sketch. click thumbnails to view larger

These are cards for an Exploding Snap game I made for a family Harry Potter party. It is played like the classic game Snap. Every player has their own pile of cards, face down. Players will turn one card over at the same time in a separate pile. When a player sees a match they yell “SNAP!” The player that made the match keeps the piles that are involved in the match. When a player sees the Exploding Snap card and yells “BOOM!”, that player gets all the face up piles on the table. Play until all the matches have been made. The players add up the points in the piles they have earned. Beware, the baddies are worth negative points.
We had a lot of fun playing this. To ensure that we all turned our cards over simultaneously we said “Wingardium Leviosa”. Because of the negative points, we quickly discovered that the player with the most cards didn’t necessarily win.

I just started with a basic shape. My sister wanted me to make a dragon, but I said that will be too hard. So, I said, “how about a dragon fly?” She thought it was a great idea. The first time I showed my mom it was just the wings. Then I started adding on Legos. The parts that were most difficult were the eyes. It took me a while, but finally I got what I wanted. The next time I showed Mom she was very impressed.
Sometimes I tire of designing logos for other people. To keep myself from getting the creative blahs I started doing fake logos for fake companies. My favorite is Igor’s Courier. What’s your favorite?
I will immediately post future fake logos on my Facebook page after I complete them. If you’re on facebook and not a fan yet, just click “like” on the right hand side of this blog.
