Zombie Nanner Gang & the Theater of the Absurd

For those of you that want to join the Zombie Nanner Gang, I just posted the list of October themes.
Last night I stayed up till 3 AM making a blog called Theodora's Theater of the Absurd. Shows you where my head is at 3 AM. 

Right now I'm working on my cat applique project and also cutting more 2"squares for my postage stamp quilt. But my boyfriend started working on his drum in the same room, and it was getting tense so I came to see what was going on in Etsy and Bloggerland.

A Few Changes

To make things more efficient and easier to understand, I've made the list for October all at once. That way you can plan ahead for supplies or garage sale finds. I'm not trying to hog up all the fun. If one of you wants to come up with a list for all of November or another for all of December just let me know. Right now I think I'm the only one participating, but if not just speak up. When Oct. starts winding to a close and if no one has spoken up I'll make the November list.

Time to Decorate for Halloween.

It's October and I'm busy making Halloween decorations. I see some of the projects we've made here will work for Halloween too, like my witch doll and the gothic wings if I get those made. My Halloween theme this year is Theater of the Absurd.

3 days

My life just keeps getting busier and busier.  I'm finding it hard to promote and improve my studio, crochet new things for it, as well as do lots of other things that i'd like to. (including participating in this blog)
But I do love it!
SO! I'm going to be taking it a bit easier on myself by making a goal of posting at least 3 things a week.  I've already gotten the supplies i need- can't wait to use my feathers for the fascinator- just putting them into action has not been coming along too well.
There are still lots on the lists that I haven't done.  I'm going to try to do 9 of them in the coming weeks.

Updated Editor

I was toying around with my settings, when I found a button to enable a newer better version of the Editor. Once I clicked on it, it applied to all my blogs, even this one. So when you go to upload photos it will look different. The icon for the photos is gone. You have to click on the tab that says 'compose' to access the photo loading page. I'm sure you'll get the hang of it.

If you would like something I have made here convo me at my etsy shop! . Again Sorry Hopefully I will be able to come back ASAP!!!

Evil Witch Bouncy Toy?

Only I could look at 'bouncy toy' and think 'evil witch'. I'm not done with her yet but here she is.

I decided to go out and buy a bunch of felt in different colors so that i could do cute, quick little projects like this one.

It ties in the colors associated with lucky stuff (the 4 leaf clover- pot of gold type thing), and is a pin, so you can keep from getting pinched on St. Patty's day or pin it to a backpack just because.

Thursday: Rustic Jewelry Box by Fayme

OKay so I'm working on it right now I have most of the structure put together and I'm thinking of adding deco to it but not sure what yet. Pictures will follow it a bit.


Do either of you want to make a new banner for autumn or winter? That way we could change it up a little.

Wednesday, 2 September 2009

Fiery melon

One of the things I'd like to throw into the challenge is to make a fascinator. Since you may not know what that is, or if you do, have no idea how to make one, I found a tutorial here: I'm making one right now. I'll let you know how it comes out.


there once was a loaf of bread who thought of being more then just plain slices. The loaf dreamed of wonderful things like Bacon, cheese, ham, lettuce, tomatoes and more. While the youthful loaf slept and dreamed his dreams of becoming a Sandwich one day; there was another who was dreaming of being a Loaf of hot steamy bread. While each dreamed of the others life it dawned on the Sandwich to trick the loaf into becoming him and replacing his slices with the other. So early the next morning the Sandwich said to the loaf I have a great idea. The Loaf quaked with excitement "could this be the day" the Loaf blurted out with glee. 'OH YES!' thought the Sandwich 'I have him now'. The sandwich looked very longingly at the loaf and said " Dear Loaf I feel I have fallen ill and will not be able to take my place as the sandwich for today I was wondering if you might find it in your kind heart to switch places with me in hopes that I will be better tomorrow". The Loaf looking kinda worried about the whole thing hummed and hawed about it for a while and finally said yes.

and that is how the 2 slices of white bread got in the wheat bread bag!

Fabulous Fish by Fayme

I took photos of the needle punch tools so you could see what I'm talking about. I got my supplies at Joanne's. The Michael's near me didn't seem to have anything for needle punch. It's a fun and portable craft. Just don't get so obsessed with finishing it that you give yourself blisters.

Check it out!


I'm still working on the 'fabulous fish' from yesterday's challenge. I started last night, worked until 2 AM and did some more this morning and I'm still not finished but my hands are. So I'm taking a break.

Update: I got more done tonight and I'm still not done. The background is taking forever.

I had to look up 'zany' because i didn't quite get it, and when i did, Clown was in the definition. So here he is. I tried to make him look wooden by using brown. =-)

Penny candy cuff

Here's my Penny Candy entry.

A white cuff with little button candies.

Gourd Mosaic Painting

I wasn't exactly sure what the theme of the day was, but it seems I guessed right because it's mini mosaic. This is 4x4" canvas painted with a mosaic heart vase in acrylics.

Penny Candy

Pics will follow but I ended up spent after running around with my sisters today *whew they sure can walk for hours* LOL so my guy was like umm I'm not going to eat just chocolate so I made some sort of cereal bars with chocolate instead, I guess it could be penny candy in a weird way ....

Fancy Letter by Lanee'

Lanee' I see your fancy 'N' going by in the slide show, but I don't think you've ever posted it to the blog. Looks great. Is it painted?

WIld Penguin

oh yeah I finished it but took forever to take pics ... also Mohawk is not included >.< was not feeling very good today

Hey! What ever happened to your Punky Panda??

Here it is!

I've been re-working this punky panda thing for days. The idea that i had before just didn't translate well, so I decided to go this way instead.

The Pink stuff on top is the start of a wildly colored mohawk. It's still not finished- will be when I figure out exactly how much mohawk is a enough.

Wild Penguin Finger Puppet

I liked this so much I listed it in my Tweeters and Hooters etsy shop right away. Then I made an owl to keep my penguin company.

Lonesome Cowgirl

I drew several lonesome cowgirls and never did get the hat just right. What I need to do is put a cowboy hat on my wig head and use it for a model. But that's a task for another day. I need to get busy cleaning for company.
