A few things

We’re going to pretend I haven’t abandoned this blog since April, shall we? Here’s are some of the craft/art projects I’ve worked on since then…I apologize if there are some repeats.

Another crafternoon extravaganza!

Oh hullo blog! I know it’s been ages since I’ve posted (February?). I’ve been a bit busy, I can’t even begin to tell you how busy. But I’ll try with a few bullet points

  • 2 weeks in Spain
  • 1 Library Conference
  • 1 root canal
  • 1 jury to serve on
  • 2 weddings to attend
  • Summer at the library to prepare
  • Summer at the library
  • learning the ukulele
  • meeting Wilson Phillips
  • Getting ready to attend ComicCon (for free!)

I know I’m missing a lot of things, but really I shouldn’t have to make excuses to you, you’re just a blog. ANYway, the point of this entry is to brag about the things I accomplished today! 

Some of them are related to the last thing on the list above. I am so psyched to be attending San Diego ComicCon as a professional (as a member of the TLA Maverick Committee). And I’ll be on a panel with 01: Second Publishing talking about graphic novel awards in libraries. So I decided I wanted to cosplay a bit. One of my costumes is going to be Wonder Woman the Librarian, so I worked on that a bit today.

I found these great earrings at Goodwill and added these comic book-y charms.

Decorated a few Wonder Woman sunglasses too!

I don’t have a picture of my skirt, but I’ll post the whole costume when I’m done with it.

The project I tackled was decided on the spur of the moment. I have a pair of flats that I have walked almost to pieces. I’ve been wanting to paint shoes for a while now, so I decided these would be the guinea pigs. Lisa said they should be Sherlock themed so I made them into Sherlock and John!,Image

I really like these shoes.

John’s cableknit jumper, and a picture of Martin Freeman for reference and also because he is adorable.

Sherlock’s Purple Shirt of Sex, on Benedict Cumberbatch and on my shoe (it looks better on him, obviously)

Image

A kitteh because John is made of them.

Bartlet is BORED.

Well that’s it for today, I think…
