I know whenever you post, it's gonna be entertaining, cheeky, and steeped in talent. I'm a big fan. Grin

Oh my, thank you!  You made me get a smidge teary.  Sniff.

this is the best thing i have seen ever.  it made me laugh out loud while sitting at my desk at work so everyone looked at me like a crazy person.

Girl, you must have been crazy already!  Or you don't get out enough.  Regardless, I thank you.  Smiley

Oh, Hahahahahahahahahaha!
You're on a roll, from the pilgrim cheerleader to this...  To Infinity and Beyond!
Can hardly wait to see what's next!

Gosh, thanks!  No pressure, right?  Yikes!

This is really fantastic.  Thanks for a smile this cold Monday morning.

You're welcome!  Back atcha, atsuko!

This is fantastic!

Thank you!

Love it!!

Aw, thanks!

How do I get on your mailing list?  Grin  Wink
All of your work paid off. It's great.

They're going email this year, so...

OMG! That is sooooo AWESOME! I love it! You did a fantastic job on it!

Thank you!  I couldn't have done it without you!

OMG I love love love this! I agree with sactownsue- I want to be on your mailing list! I'm sure your family and friends will love them. I totally admire people who make their own holiday cards. Usually the husband and I  just take a picture in front of our tree and then order our cards from Wal-Mart or something.

I'm writing a book here but I just have to share! My husband is in Iraq this year and for Thanksgiving, the local cooks that they employ made them a Thanksgiving dinner and decorated the dining facility. However, they really had no idea about Thanksgiving so some of the decorations were rather humorous. My husband's favorite was a 3 foot tall T-Rex. So I am loving T-Rex for Thanksgiving and Godzillas for Christmas. Really good job.

Thank you!  I certainly don't always make them myself, but back in the day when I didn't make them, I'd write a long, almost completely fictitious holiday family newsletter instead.

That T-rex story is so awesome!  And even perfect for me, as to my nieces and nephews (including the honorary ones) I am known as Auntie T-rex!  I was tempted to use a t-rex in my pic, because they were SO much easier to find, but they aren't mythological so wouldn't fit my theme.

I can no longer picture them as anything but kitchen gear.  I wonder what other people use it for?

i LOVE it!  now i want to make really awesome cards...

Thank you!  It's been awhile since I've been motivated and inspired, so it feels good to be back into it.

So last Christmas my good friend gave me that teal and purple reindeer.  It's SO up my alley as I'm a sucker for teal, I'm a sucker for purple, I'm a sucker for glitter and that thing is flocked AND marabou-ed!  It's the most Vegas/drag queen-y Christmas decoration around and I LOVE it!  When it came home it sat on my piano with Bigfoot for awhile and an idea hatched.  This is the result.

This would not have been possible w/o bsonlytoots who read my signature request for a Godzilla swap.  She crafted that lovely beast and was super awesome about requests and parameters!  I also have to thank kittykill who tried her damnedest to help me out, but things just didn't gel.  However, I got to meet her (we live pretty closely in the same city) and will hopefully continue to get to know her even more in the future.  Also special thanks to my friend, Sol Neelman, a pro photo journalist who helped guide me, took the pic and did the editing and all that - all for a trade of getting some ring-around-the collar out of a white linen shirt (http://solneelman.com/, http://weddings.solneelman.com/)!  Chump.  Wink

Here here!  I have a limited number of text messages my phone's inbox will store, but I keep the one from The ManFlesh that says "Your made things are better than things bought in a store for that matter."  And when I told him about this thread and the people who's friends or families don't appreciate the time or quality of hand made he said, "Really?" and was truly shocked and baffled.  He's a keeper.
3918  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Thanksgiving / Re: I was a Pilgrim Cheerleader. on: December 04, 2008 06:54:36 PM
oh my god this is hilarious!

Thanks!  It was fast and fun to make and fun and easy to wear.

everyone should dress like this for thanksgiving.  it would make it more enjoyable.

Haha!  Now I wish I still had the elf skirt I made in Jr high (it had an elastic waist, so maybe it would fit, kind of) so I could have an xmas costume, too!

Do I remember your mentioning that your co-adventurers for Thanksgiving add another event each year? (in addition to the three legged race and the cranberry spitting contest, I think you mentioned, I didn't go back to look)

What was the new event this year?

The rest of us have been puzzling over what kind of sporting events you can do with a wattle of beer tucked under your chin.....at least I have  Roll Eyes

I'm sure you were the best pilgrim cheerleader ever! Love the buckles and the pom poms especially.

One can't underestimate the importance of the quotation marks when I say "'athletic'".  Ahem.  I will try to get them all, but I'm sure I'm going to miss one and not get them completely in order.

1. 3-legged Race
2. Cranberry and Catch (in the partner's mouth)
3. Dribbling a soccer ball around some cones
4. Tossing a football into a bin about 15' away
5. Tandem bike race (one peddles, one rides on the seat, trade places for return trip)
6. Hunt for the squash with your team number on it
7. Each team eat an entire package of the cheapest processed turkey (fake turkey for vegetarians)
8. Guzzle a cheap can of beer
9. Walk with a raw egg on a spoon, transfer to partner who walks it back
10. Tear open the waddle and drink the beer then "slam" the empty glove on the ground.

I think the egg was the new one this year, but I'm not entirely certain.

I would actually love Thanksgiving if I had friends/family members who were that enthusiastic about having fun. I was laughing like crazy when I saw the first picture because the idea of a cheerleading pilgrim is just ridiculous, but after knowing the reasoning behind it, it's even funnier!
You better have something good to show us for Christmas too  Grin

Well, my family came, but it wasn't their holiday.  It saved me from having to go to 2 dinners!  I wish I had something for xmas, but I think it's just going to be a red shirt that I didn't make.  Sad

Looks marvelous and oh so much fun!  Love how you took the pilgrim girl costume idea and made it so uniquely your own.

Well, it never would've happened w/o blatantly stealing from you!  My pom poms were pretty lame, but I thought "these people were starving, so I'm sure their pom poms were even more lame."  If I had to do it again and wanted to spend any money, I think turkey feather feather dusters would've been the ticket for the pom poms.   Grin

Where do I sign up for next year!  How much more fun that would be than hangin' with Auntie Mabel over dried out turkey!


Nice thing is that these friends are foodies and vintners, so the food was great (deep fried, brined turkeys) and plenitful (eventually)!
