I am having so much fun opening my packages! I love how each artist has a new idea for Mr Ickybucket... here is Bladeburn's idea.  Look at all the little pupil monsters!  And the funny roll of toilet paper!  This is a great piece, Bladeburn.  Thank you so much!!

This is what I got from Eukarya to illustrate section 3 of my story:
Wow, she is talented. I just loved the desk! and the detail of how some kid in the row in back is reading a comic book.  Great monster, eukarya!  His tie is adorable.  thank you sooo much.

Stupid, Stupid Alphabet
by Meg Oceanna

-----Section 1 (Ralph):

Good morning, you pitiful blockheads.  I am your substitute for today and Ill be teaching you the alphabet.
     Everyone face forward!  Pay no attention to that lady tied to the chair at the back of the room.  Youre here to learn and shes here to, um, count the flies on the windowsill.
     So this alphabet thing starts with the letter A.
     A is for Ask me no questions and well all get along just fine.
     B is for Bunion.
     See?  Whamm!  This is the biggest bunion Ive ever had.
     C is for Crash, which is what a teachers desk does when I put my leg on it like that.
     D is for Dum.  This letter is dum, this alphabet is dum and the whole idea of putting letters together to spell words is dum.
     Hey, why are you putting a b on the end of my word?
     Oh.


-----Section 2 (haroldlovesmaude):
     E is for Egg, but only if its rotten and dripping down the window as the sun shines through from the right angle.  Here, Ill show you.
     Craaaack!  There, isnt that lovely?  It gives just the right ambiance to a classroom full of eager little learners.
     F is for Fun.  ISNT THIS FUN?!
     G is for Giraffe because it always is.  Always.  If you open any alphabet book in the whole world, G is for Giraffe and Im sick of it, do you hear me?  Sick of it!
     H is for Ha, ha, ha.  Poor little Katie here in the front row just dropped her pencil.  Well, ha, ha, ha.
     I is for Ickybucket, which happens to be my last name.  If anyone has anything to say about that, you can SEE ME AFTER CLASS.
     J is for Jiraffe, because it always is.  Always.
     What?
     Oh.
     Never mind, then.  Why dont you tell us then, smarty-pants, what J is for.
     Jellybean?  What kind of idiot answer is that?


-----Section 3 (eukarya):

     K is for Kickball and since I am a monster, Ill bet I can kick the ball ten times further than any of you urchins can, so there.
     L is for Letter.  See, each one of these little scribbly things is a letter, although why they invented only twenty-six of them is beyond me.  I mean, why couldnt they just make it an even thirty?
     M is for...
     Um, M is for something.  Ill think of something.  Lets go back to that one later.
     N is for Nothing and O is for Odor and when you put them together they spell NO.
     As in, No, you cant get a drink of water, so put your hand down!
     P is for Pupil.  Not the little black thing in your eye, but the kind that comes in here day after day and sits in a hard chair and wants to learn useless stuff like what the alphabet is.
     Q is for Question and if you want to ask me one, well, thats too bad because this particular substitute teacher is busy right now.


-----Section 4 (bladeburn):

     R is for Ridiculous.  The fact that Im forced to stand here today teaching little buggers like you when I could be stomping in a mud puddle eating moldy potato chips is ridiculous!
     S is for Stick, see?
     And for Stupid.
     Stupid,
     Whack
     Stupid,
     Whack
     Alphabet!
     Ow.  And Splinter.  Ow!  I hate splinters.  They scare me.  Theyre so little and sharp and they hurt and ....
     No, dont try to get it out!!
     Ow!  Ow!!
     Hey, sniff, You got it out.
     T is for Tissue.  Thanks.


-----Section 5 (Ralph):

     U is for Understand.  Sniff
     I dont understand why monsters always have to be this way. Sniff.  I didnt ask to be born with big hairy bunion feet and a bad attitude.
     What if I want to be different?  What if I want to raise bunny rabbits to give to old lonely people to keep them company?
     V is for Valentine.  Do you know Ive never gotten a single valentine?  Not even one from the phone company that says We love how you choose us for your long distance needs.
     W is for Why.  Why doesnt anyone just come up to me and say, Hello Mr. Ickybucket, I know youre a monster, but I can see that deep down youre really nice, so lets go bowling?
     X must be for something.  I just dont know anymore.  Sniff.  I need a hug.
     Y is for You.  You all have been so nice to me.  It feels wonderful to have someone who actually cares.  Sniff.  Go untie that teacher, would you please?
     Well, I guess Z is for Zebra.  Ive always kind of wondered if each zebra has their own special stripey pattern.
     They do?
     Hey, Miss Angela, could I please stay for class?
     Goody!
     Hi.  My name is Mr. Ickybucket.  Whats yours?

Here are the goodies I got from AMC-  a neat little embroidered bag with a pentagram on it, and 5 Supernatural magnets inside. I have no idea how she knew I needed fridge magnets - that must have taken some serious stalking or else she is supernatural herself.  They are great!  Thanks, AMC-!  ps check out the little skulls on the ribbons!

This is the wonderful page I just opened from haroldlovesmaude. She did a comic strip version of her section.  Here is the whole story, followed by two of her close-up drawings:

I really really love what she did. It is sooo much like what I have been picturing these characters and scenes to look like as I have written and edited this story over the years.  Thank you very very much, haroldlovesmaude!!!

I received today from DinosaurusMeg!  My eyes have seen the glory of the coming of turquousie goodness!
First up, a stunningly soft blanket with my favorite woodsy owl on it:

Seriously, the color emanating from this blanket is making me swoon. It came rolled up in its own little velcroed ribbon.
next up, a knitted scarf made from bamboo (who knew? I am not a knitter.  so cool!! and wool.) I dont know  how it can have wool in it, as it is not the least bit scratchy against my skin....  It goes so perfectly with my favorite earrings. i wish this pic were not so dark!

inside this egg was a funny button:

and lastly but never never leastly, a zip bag with turquoise as accent colors.

this material is something I would have paused to drool over in JoAnnes!!  I really love it.  Gabe did not mind modeling it. It has a polkadotted inside. Really nicely made.
dinoMeg, I love everything! Especially the scarf.  Thank you so much. It was totally worth the wait!
Next up,

look, JUST LOOK!!!!!  at the incredibly gorgeous piece I received from Glamis. she asked about my favorite wild flowers and came up with this absolutely wonderful artwork. I am so in love with this painting!!  It now hangs in my yellow kitchen and makes the whole atmosphere happy and light.  glamis, you are talented and a joy to have as a partner!  A close-up:

check out the bees with their little gathering buckets!!

 But wait!  There is more!  for my turquoise bedroom, a make-me-drool bit of embroidery.  Truly, drool is what I do when I see this color.


and a closeup of the fine stitchery
I expect the oooohs and ahhhhs to coming pouring in now!!!!!   Thank you sooo much, Glamis.  You are very very special.

520  my newest night light in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by blupaisan on: May 04, 2010 09:22:36 AM

the story behind this: I made it for someone as a big thank-you gift.I have never met them! I saw online that they owned a rare childhood game of mine. I asked if they would ever be willing to sell it.  It was the first I had found anywhere in the world, besides my old one, which I had lost.  When they finally said yes, I was out of a job and so broke I could not even afford gas to go the the post office.  I told her my predicament, and said that I could not buy it.  She MAILED IT TO ME FOR FREE!! What a sweetheart.  She is more rare than the game is!  So, I make these nightlights and made this one for her, dug into my sofa cushions for shipping money, and mailed it off.
