Check-Out-This-Shit-I-Made-Tuesday

So on Black Friday you’re supposed to go shopping, but for people like me who panic in crowds that’s like saying you can get 20% off a sweater but the sweater is stored in a big box of live spiders.  Then there was Small Business Saturday which everyone ignores because small businesses don’t have enough money to promote themselves.  Then yesterday was CyberMonday when things online go on sale but it’s never what you want.  I don’t know what today is supposed to be so let’s call it Check-Out-This-Shit-I-Made-Tuesday and you can promote anything awesome you made in the comments.  Link to the best thing you’ve ever written, or to your book that needs more eyes on it, or to your art that you sell on etsy, or the taxidermied mice you dress in clothing, or the painting or photo you created but never showed anyone because you weren’t sure it was worth showing.  If you made it, put a link or picture in the comments (with a sentence telling what it is so people will know what they’re getting into).

I’ll go first.  I made a haunted dollhouse filled with allusions to my favorite stories years ago.  It took me a year just to build it and another five to furnish it and it’s still not done.  Some of the stuff in the house is bought but at least half I made myself or broke apart, bastardized, repainted, etc.  I created secret tunnels and tiny books and stitched tiny rugs and learned how to make miniature wigs and sculpt dragons.

Your turn.

PS.  Also, five seconds after I posted this I read on twitter that it’s also Giving Tuesday, so after you check this stuff out then maybe consider giving to a worthy cause.  Or give someone a compliment.  Or give me a fist-bump.  Whatever works for you.  Have you checked out World Builders?  Because it’s awesome and worthy of your attention.  I’m buying a goat in your honor right now.  I don’t know if we get to name the goat, but if so I say we call him “Mr. Pumpernickel” because it’s fun to say.

    I bought a 1970’s family portrait at a garage sale, framed in fake wood. My intention was to doodle in the background and gift it to dear friends for their wedding, but once I started doodling, I couldn’t stop and my husband found it too disturbing and begged me not to give it to them.

  162. I have a three pictures I drew in pencil from 1986. They’re not the best thing in the world, but they represent one year in my life when I was unemployed and didn’t know what was going to become of me. I have always kept them. It was also the last time I drew anything as life kind of took over and I’m just too much of a wreck to even sit down and draw anymore.

    I’d post them here, but I can’t figure out how as I really suck as a computer person.

    So, if you could all just imagine the most beautifully drawn red-tailed hawk, white-tailed deer, and my (or “any” since you don’t know me) golden retriever/lab mix from the pound, that’d be great.

  166. I’m with you on the whole shopping experience.
    After numerous close calls with panic attacks I succumbed to online grocery shopping some months ago, and will never go back.
    I can handle going into a shopping centre (on quieter days, or early in the morning), but this time of year is not good for my anxiety.
    You may also be interested to know that over here (a day ahead of you), it’s International Day of People with a Disability:
    http://www.idpwd.com.au/

    In a sense there are many of us with disability who either don’t self identify that way, or are seen as normal because there are no obvious physical signs of disability.

    Being married to a woman who uses a wheelchair for mobility, and who manages to hold down a stressful job, whilst also juggling care arrangements for her mother who was recently moved into an aged care facility with dementia has really made me look at myself more closely.

    I haven’t held down a job for over 3 years now, and no longer have any intention or inclination to do so, as I find being a carer, house husband and dog owner pushes me to the limit of my stress capacity, so with that, and various mental health issues, I’m starting to realize that if I don’t identify as having a disability, I certainly should.

    When my wheelchair using wife can manage to do things I can’t it’s clear that there is something not right with me, and the fact it’s beyond my control means it’s clearly more than a passing phase or laziness.

    Anyway happy whatever day it is where you are, and remember, no matter how bad it gets in life, there’s always someone else doing it tougher (just a shame sometimes you can’t see them to put things into perspective).

    As Hanukah approaches, “snow whirls about the shtetl, and a family with ill-behaved sheep, heedless chickens and ducks, and a wayward cow receives an unexpected visit. Slowly the four-footed visitor will work her magic…”

    Dreidle is a perfect Hanukah or Christmas gift for children or adults who love animals and dogs in general, folk tales, gentle humor and magic.

    A beautifully illustrated book with a well told, sweet and moving story. A story that can stand alone or also be part of the Hanukah season.

I wrote a piece shortly after my mother’s suicide a year ago yesterday (that I just recently had the guts to post to my blog) in which I tried to express some of the conflicting emotions I was experiencing following complicated grieving, and tell a little of my story growing up with a mother with severe mental illnesses. Although my instincts sometimes tell me to protect my stories rather than share them, and thus protect myself, I think it’s important to stop hiding mental illnesses in a dark corner. By sharing our stories, we can start shedding light on the stigmas attached to them and start instigating change.

  233. This is a link to my pintrest board of my painted leather jacket.

    I am a 36 year old woman who found a biker jacket I could afford over the summer. I’ve wanted a jacket like this since I was 19. This is way more affordable than tattoos.
    Things I will add when it gets warmer:
    1. The right shoulder will have a bouquet of daisies with a garden spider hidden and a banner wrapped around that reads, “Better to ask forgiveness than permission.” It’s something my Dad says a lot.
    2. Carl Sagan giving double finger guns with “We are all made of Star Stuff” quote
    3. I want the Gaelic lyrics from the song Release by Afrocelt Sound System because it sounds beautiful and the lyrics give me chills. I don’t speak Gaelic and I can’t find it written out. I can only find the translation (He’s singing what Sinead O’Conner is singing, but in Gaelic.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7LhIkAKJzs8&list=PLZjYGS_QeSHXbmsZbk47iAVjBhcqFQ0ib
    4. The Dead Milkmen logo from their Texas tour last year. It’s to memorialize me getting to see them play live after 20 years of waiting.

    I have several people who now want me to pain things for them, but no one has come up with the said items or cash to pay for the art. I’m thinking of splurging on a jacket at the thrift store. I went looking a few weeks ago and could only find leather jackets that were the patchwork style that is no longer in fashion, but I’m thinking I could paint Sally from Nightmare before Christmas on the back and then paint some of the patches different patterns, paint some big mismatched stitches throughout. That would keep me busy while it’s cold enough to wear my jacket.

  243. As a lifelong comic book fan and a man raised by several strong women I know firsthand what real strength is and that some of life’s most interesting characters don’t fit the traditional Hollywood mold. In fact, most of the characters that hold my interest look more like Molly Solverson than Escher girls. I believe it is well past time that there were more interesting female leads that actually look like real women in comics.

    Thanks to my wife, another strong woman, I am in the process of making my life long dream come true by creating a comic book filled with all female leads called ‘Callahan’. It is the result of years of work and collaboration with several influential women I am proud to call friends. If all goes well I hope to start my own comic book company run predominately by women, with predominately female writers, artists and creators.
