I want to be (pause pause) your sledgehammer!

No more Christmas song bastardizations on Music Lyrics Friday! No one is sorrier than me that I never finished my 'Jack Frost Roasting on an Open Fire' Opus.

Today's selection comes from a classic 80's song fraught with wholesome metaphors.

I want to be
Sing it, Peter Gabriel!

Christmas Aftermath

Phew! Christmas is over! And we spent all our money. 

help me, i'm poor.
One thing I forgot to spend my money on -- Bridesmaids the DVD. Dangit! Thank goodness Mr. Floozy got me an amazon gift certificate!

And thank you, special customer, who ordered this sampler for your sister. I hope she liked it!

'Tis the Season to be Coughing

Is it just us or does every single Tom, Dick, & Harry Potter virus seem to slowly domino through the family? It is like we are endlessly inflicted with some cough, sneezy, or puking bug. 

Which is why I stitched this...

Let it blow ... let it blow ... let it blow....

I'm not sure how many of you have browsed through my Etsy store, but if you have, maybe you have seen this: 

stay at home mofo
My super awesome friend Brittny, fake-bought this on Etsy and then messaged me saying, "Uh, since I am not a SAHMofo, can you make me a feminist working gal version instead?" And I said, yes, of course! Because I believe in the power of all of us women-folk-mofos. I don't understand the friction between SAHM's and those women who choose to work and/or not have kids and/or do whatever brings them personal fulfillment in their lives. I picture all of us mofos like the Whos in Whoville, holding hands and singing "Dah who do raze! Dah who do raze! Welcome Christmas, bring your cheer!" I mean, that is a beautiful image full of beauty and truth and Christmas goodwill, right?

Here is the final product for my friend. I call it the Femi-Mofo! Sampler:

Radiohead makes me tingly.

It's Friday! Which means I stitched something. Instead of movie and television quotes, I have decided to start something new! Music quotes. Also known as lyrics.

If you want to know anything about me, know this. I am obsessed with Radiohead. I love them. Love for them I have in my heart. See this general area where my mom chest is? that is where my adoration for Radiohead throbs with love. Throbs. LOOOoooOOoohhhvvveh.

My favorite song is Let Down, but I decided to stitch something from No Surprises. Mostly because the lyrics fit nicely with the whole homemaking kitschy theme I got going on.

such a pretty house and such a pretty garden
no alarms and no surprises

This is what happens when Mr. Floozy goes out of town.

I spend the day taking pictures of my dogs.

Someone call Puppy Protective Services. This lady is crazy.
Please enjoy the fruits of my labors by going to Happy Valley Crafters and reading about it here.
