Except to run a few errands, Missy and I pretty much spent our 3-DAY WEEKEND holed up here in the Ranch. We worked on framing more art and hanging it in our HALLWAY GALLERY, our current pet project which has been chugging along at a leisurely pace. We would've got farther along, but we ran out of frames long before we ran out of steam...
We also did a ton of crafting in order to replenish our stock of goodies before the I.C.E. ATLANTA craft fair in a couple of weeks. We punched out a bunch more new ONE INCH BUTTON DESIGNS...
Missy decided to use up some scrap material by making these FUZZY PENCIL TOPPERS with GOOGLY EYES...you ever make these when you were a little kid?
I spent the weekend sewing my signature ZIPPERED POUCHES and making CHEEKY OFFICE PLAQUES...

Last week we were lucky enough to see these clouds in the parking lot of our work. I had my camera, so I snapped pictures of these clouds before they changed. Clouds can change very quickly!
What do you see?
I saw a bunny and a carrot. This bunny reminds me of our bunny Jumbles. He is just like a cloud and his fur is so soft. He also enjoys a carrot every now and then!
What do you see?
We saw a fawn taking a nap in the forest. You can even see the forest around her in the clouds. She is in the perfect hiding place. Raoul said he saw it, too.

Today is my brother's birthday! Happy birthday, Greg! We hope you have a great "Special Day." My brother is the funniest person I know. He is always making funnies and makes us laugh. Last Halloween he dressed as a zombie Michael Jackson. We love you!

Each year I visit my dentist. This was not always so, but I started going regularly about six years ago. Do you like visiting the dentist?
I am happy to report - I have NO CAVITIES! I never have! And those people who know me very well are surprised to hear this, as I really like sweets! I used to eat so many sweets in my college days, too. I have toned it down quite a bit since then, and now I like dark chocolate.
Every five years they like to take x-rays of your teeth. This is neat to see, but sometimes uncomfortable when you hold the frames used to help the x-ray aim on your teeth. It is neat to look at the x-rays of your teeth when the dentist shows them to you.
When I was little the tooth fairy visited me. I often wondered where she was when I had all four wisdom teeth removed!
Super! I get a gold crown today for doing so good at my dentist appointment today. They told me everything looks good! I told them I would celebrate by eating some sweets. They said that was okay, as long as I remembered to brush afterwards!
Spent the night punching out ONE INCH BUTTONS that Missy designed for newly-minted band SCI-FI CAPER, who hail from Fresno, California. Emelia and Samuel make buzzsaw twee pop and they just posted their bare-bones demo - SKELETON TRACKS - to their Bandcamp page, which you should check out HERE. We like what we hear so far!

I made some zines in time for Fluke back in April. Yay! I was so happy to get these printed and ready for our table. I think they turned out really well.
I created a collection of some of my favorite Tofu Baby comics from Flagpole.
Here is Dork Lifestyle 2 and 3. These are my comics from Fierce and Nerdy, my friend Ernessa runs. I really like seeing these comics in glorious mini comic form.
You can get these new zines on my personal website or Shoppe Sugar Cookie on Etsy!
