Heading over to Blogger. Sorry WordPress.

The last handful of times that i’ve tried to put together a post on WordPress if been disappointed that i could not get the pictures where I wanted.   This may be due to my lack of computer knowledge, but in any event it put me over the edge and I started looking for a way to transfer my posts to Blogger where I already had another blog going.  So, this is is for my wordpress blog. Temporal Millionaire will be hosted from here on out on Blogger.


Go there now and leave me a message, really…it’ll be fun!

Super cute moss garden

Super cute moss garden
I heard about moss gardens somewhere and had it on my list of things to do with my little guy. I did a little looking on the internet and found  this post by Ciao Birdie helpful. Like everything these days I wanted to do this project on the cheap and I did! I took my little helper to the thrift shop to see if we could find suitable containers and we did. We each picked our favorite container ($2 for both). The only other thing we need was something to keep the dirt from going through to the rock. Ciao birdie suggested horticultural charcoal, but fearing that something that sounded fancy might be expensive, I bought a small bag of sphagnum moss ($3.50). We found the rest of the needed supplies in our yard. I took a few containers and we started our collection. One bowl of pebbles, one of dirt, and then one of assorted moss. I was amazed at how many different kinds of moss we found in our yard. I had never looked at it that closely before. I think we found six different kinds. We brought everthing to the table and got to work putting in all the layers. First pebbles, then sphagnum moss, dirt, and finally the moss. He really enjoyed making his garden and so did I. Here is my finished product. The bowl is about the size of my palm…it’s super cute. Oh, and I went with bowls that did not have a top because I knew my little guy would want to “take care” of his moss. I gave him a mister to spray it whenever he wants. It evaporates at a rate that keeps it from getting too wet with all the misting. Just right! A good project for about $5.50.

Hoodies-sketchbookHoodies-Orange Jester

Hoodies-Green Rock & Roll

I drew these little guys in my sketch book the other night.  Today I drew a couple on 4″ x 6″ matte board and added some collage.  The green guy didn’t scan as well, maybe that’s why he looks kind of bummed out.

Thinking about sushi…

Sashimi Toy Set

One day I wanted to eat sushi…I thought and thought and thought about the sushi. Oh how yummy it would be to eat sushi. I did not have any sushi. I did not have money to buy sushi, but I did make this delicious stuffed set of sashimi.

All of the pieces snap together for loads of sashimi making fun, and best of all you can throw them all in this cute little bag with a sushi print. YEAH!

This went up at my etsy shop today. Time to gear up for Cyber Monday!

Grateful Dead inspired Travel Kitties and some shopping tips


These are some of the latest Travel Kitties I made. I think I was looking for a reason to use bright colors and the dancing bears came to mind. They are cute and happy like these kitties. I just started putting these guys up at my etsy store, which despite my efforts to stockpile my kitty supply…it has been bought out. I’ll see if I can fill it back up before Black Friday. Oh, on that note if you have not taken the handmade pledge, now is the time…support an artist!

The inspiration behind the drawing…

Eli ties his shoes!

tie your shoes

tie your shoes

The Illustration Friday topic for the week was “strings” (I thought). My wee boy learned how to tie his shoes today, so I had shoe strings on my mind, perfect. I drew this up and went to IF to upload it and that topic must have been for last week. This weeks topic is “late”…still seems like a fitting drawing given my dilemma.

I also started the list of drawing topics for Everyday Matters. I knew shoes was the first thing on the list for a long time now. I never felt like drawing shoes, which means in my twisted way that I could not continue on with the list…lame. I’m counting this as my shoes drawing and moving on. Join me! It’s a drawing party and you’re invited. Yeah!

I love carnies

I’ve been taking pictures of carnival rides…I can’t help it.

They are so colorful and, well…run by carnies-and who doesn’t love the carnies?!

Another Gocco Success! (and a gocco tip)

Here are the latest cards I printed with my gocco! I took a little illustration I made of my neice Emily and made them into cards for my sister, Emily’s momma, as a birthday present. I hope she likes them.

second screen...adding color

set of cards

For this print I used two screens and four colors. The outline of the girl I did on one screen so that I could print the envelopes without the word hello. The second screen had all the colors. One thing I did learn that I can pass along to you new gocco-ers is to make sure you mix your colors well. I mixed the blue for this print and although it looked thoroughly mixed, it was not. Their were little swirls of white that came through while I was printing, and as a result the blue looks faded in some of the prints. I did do fairly well with the registration which I was happy about. They have some Gocco machines that come with a plate to help you with registration and i can see how that would be helpful in more complicated prints, but for this one using the Gocco pad to line up the prints worked out just fine for me.
