I finished with my new Art-0-Mat project……..yaaaaay!!!

art-o-mat critters
I love doing stuff for the Art-o-Mat and it’s really funny to think where my little critters will wind up and with whom they will reside, but after making about 30 of them I start to wish I could be done now. (I like to try and send at least 50)

Anyway I made different series of critters from the last ones which were the mouse, cat and frog. This time I went with a Monkey, a Snake and a Lion. I am really pleased with how they turned out I just hope people like them.

I had the strangest weekend last weekend. My husband entered the Dairyland Dare in Wisconsin. He is a crazy single speed nut and wrote about his experience here if you are into that kind of thing……..I am not. I am not being mean (well maybe a lttle) but I really hate bikes and everything about them, and getting up at 3 am on Saturday morning to drive Markie to Wisconsin for the 5 am race start didn’t help to endear myself to them any either. It also meant that I had the joy of getting to Madison at just before 7am to wander zombie like around the farmers market.

I did snag some fantastic bargains in urban outfitters though (I love their half off all sale item sales)

I got this for $10.00

full vinyl

It’s really, really cool and I have wanted it for a while but it’s normally $30.00.   I love all the kid robot stuff and it features them and other cool vinyl collectibles

and this for $4.00


It certainly lives up to it’s name. I can’t wait to make the bunnies.

I also hit up The glitterworkshop and finally bought the T-shirt I have coveted since the first time I went in there…….


How can you not love a tee that features devil kitty bum?

Anyway that was my weekend…….How was yours?

    My friend in Illinois bought a little monkey from the Art-o-mat at her local library. She sent it to me here in New York State. Now you know where at least one of your monkeys resides: he(she?) is standing on top of a book on my bookshelf, waving to greet all who enter the room. 🙂
