craft fair season is over, but i've been making gifts!

out of other music's top 25 releases of 2007, i own one: st. vincent - marry me. i know z has band of horses - cease to begin and maybe the spoon record. you know what though? i don't feel like i am missing that much. i used to worship other music for being the end all be all of music taste. my top list is going to be less crazy than last year because although i've been listening to stuff, a lot of it has been over and over again. i feel a bit older. listening to old things and nostalgic albums a lot more than new stuff. though there is definitely new stuff that gripped me in 2007, it is a lot less than in previous years.

i have had a headache for two days straight now. tonight zachary and i went to see our pal kris racer play at schuba's with a full band. walking through the bar was hell. i hate smoke. so much. i cannot wait until the smoking ban goes into effect. we stopped in at jewel to pick up some more OJ for me who is now the sicky boo. then i came back and sewed some coasters for a co-worker's birthday. i had already bought her a gift for xmas and i'd forgotten her bday was next week, so i figured i'd make her something. she loves christmas stuff so i used snowflake fabric and then two other fabrics and voila. they are not perfect, but i think they are pretty good for a first try. in the middle i used wool felt.


last night (tuesday) i went to the hideout and met sei-jin there for for the holiday sale and then picked ginny up and headed to relax lounge for the venus winter issue launch party. had a couple free effen vodka drinks and went back home to make lentils. the night before that i made alex's christmas present and took lots of photos of hoggle (3 of which i made new postcards of). alex, i know you're home a lot more with your new job, so you are likely reading lj on a more regular basis, so don't look at what is behind the cut:

the zipper was an experience since i just winged it and i didn't take out the zipper foot becaue i couldn't remember where it was, still works, but it would have been better. i think alex will still like it. also, miss alison says she will give me a zipper tutorial, so i will wait until then to try adding another zipper to one of these.

here are the photos i had made into postcards. i'll sell them in sets of three. limited to 100 sets. w00t.

there are a lot more photos of him here:

also, monday night i sewed a thing to go around his pvc pipe to make it a bit more interesting for him. he pooped and peed in his other tunnel thing and it will have to be hand washed which i haven't had the time or energy to do, so i figured this was a quick solution. he likes it!
