eco-friendly lunch

I stumbled upon this website while pretend-shopping online (you know, where you put items in your cart but you don't end up buying anything) on Cyber Monday.  I've always been a fan of plastic bags, but they are such a waste...what a cute alternative! The navy shark is my favorite print.

Happy Gobble Gobble Day!

I hope everyone had a nice and stuffing Thanksgiving! We didn't do a turkey this year (it was just the two of us) but we decided to do a pseudo-thanksgiving dinner consisting of turkey burgers, stuffing, mashed potato, biscuits, and a HUGE spinach and mushroom salad. YUM.  And in the course of eating this meal, we made these biscuit turkey burgers and highly recommend this with your leftover turkey and such. It's a combination of turkey (or turkey burger), mashed potato, stuffing with gravy, all sandwiched in the biscuit. You can't go was delicious! Happy Thanksgiving Leftover Day!

The Lion King

I've had this Simba (from the Lion King) doll for, like, ever, and i took it out of the closet the other weekend.  Of course the kittens would love a large lion puppet doll! So we decided to recreate the movie in our living room.  I was a fantastic puppeteer.

Who's a Chuck fan?

That would be everyone, including myself.  I saw this popping up around the internet, and i was searching for a site that actually SOLD them.  But all i found were memorabilia (like on eBay)...not an actual store. darn. my husband could use a pair...

**kitty kat korner** - hanging kuro 2

Here's another picture of Mr. chair-climber in action. I particularly like this photo cuz it's got nice colors, and the reflection of the lamp in the mirror is looking kinda neat and fancy.  I am rather itching to get that oil-painting started up again (since so many have commented that I am being lazy for not finishing it), but oils are so messy...

**kitty kat korner** - hanging kuro

Kuro seems to like to hang on the side of the chair.  In fact, he likes dangling 1/2 of his body off the back of the chair, and trying to catch his tail on the opposite side.  It's easier that I show you...

He stays in this rather uncomfortable position and attacks his tail for at least 15 minutes.  It's incredible this guy...making anything into a new exciting game.

My Apologies!

I have been away from this blog for far too long, and I apologize! I have lots to share, but I have been such a busy bee as of late.  Update: the Claire's freelance that began as primary vector drawings and production has turned into a hard-core illustration gig. Fantastic! I draw all day and  At this point, I don't care if the company will use the art or not; it's a great portfolio boost!

So here today, I introduce you to something FANTASTIC.  My husband found it over the weekend, and I have been humming this song ever since.  I know there are a few that are just going to DIG THIS SHIT. Introducing Smoke on the Water, tokiwazu stylz!

Happy Monday!

How was everyone's Halloween? Hope it was fun.  I, for one, sneaked around the house to avoid the trick-o-treaters because of my lack of candy in the house.  I know..I'm horrible.  But when you hand out candy it's ENDLESS! and on a first saturday in over a month without work..I just couldn't.
So instead, I was surfing and found this baby at the MoMa store.  Now I post this because I have this same exact thing, and I got it at a dollar store in Japan! OUCH! Uber cute, but

Pig cooking lid. Check out the price.
