Pretty Things to Own or Covet
Janis told me that David Malki ! of Wondermark (An Illustrated Jocularity) will be putting out the following adorable tshirts based on this comic sometime now-ish, with online ordering opening up near the end of the month. Go clicky for more info!
In the meanwhile, this adorable crafty shirt IS available:
Also, this made the rounds in 2007, but I hadn't seen it before Deb posted it on The AntiCraft's FB page (thanks, Deb!), so I figured I'd share in case there were other's like me. Who couldn't love Keetra Dixon's blood puddle pillows called The Great Slumber? They are simple but evocative.

I have been remiss about some stitches
I've been meaning to point out Mr. X Stitch since the beginning of the month, but have had blog fail. Time to rectify, especially since they were nice enough to plug the current contest and upcoming issue for us!
Mr. X Stitch is like taking Julie Jackson and Jenny Hart, stuffing them into a blender, pureeing them into one paste, kneading that paste into clay, and forming that clay into a superhuman embroidering golem, but in blog format. No, really! Monsieur Stitcher himself, Jamie, and his partner in crime, Bee, bring you the best in truly artistic, twisted, awesome, and self-referential embroidery every day. (Beefrank, may I call you Bee? I'm going to call you Bee.)
He and Bee are no slouches with a needle, either, as evidenced by their Etsy stores. (Who wants a blackwork "The Hammer Is My Penis"? I do, I do!)

Tip of the Hat, Wag of the Finger
I came across a new sock yarn club called GothSocks from Rainy Days & Wooly Dogs on Etsy.
"What are GothSocks you ask? GothSocks are our line of self striping yarns that stripe a sold black for 4-5 rows and then a variegated or semi-sold for another 4-5 rows."Color me enchanted! Tip of the hat to you, Rainy Days & Wooly Dogs!
Rainy Days & Wooly Dogs also has adorable orifice hooks for spinners. (I love how dirty that sounds!) They are handmade and decorated with woodburining and color. My favorites were the one with the garden gnome and another one Gir from Invader Zim riding a pig. Had I not just brought home a Fricke with a delta orifice (locally; link is for reference), I'd be all over these hooks.
But, wag of the finger to you, Rainy Days & Wooly Dogs, for copyright infringement! Cartoon characters such as Gir are not public domain, and selling an orifice hook does not fall under Fair Use. My friend Clarine can educate you further on this subject, as she regularly smacks down unlicensed usage of the anime characters distributed via her company, Funimation.

Something for nothing.
I know I post a lot about things none of us can afford, which is depressing, no matter how cool they are. But here is something for all the Google Whores (like me) and it's absolutely free:
Seeing as how I'm also obsessed with office supplies and stationary, you can bet I'm gonna get in on this.

Queen's Knight to Bishop A6
So, I like art that's also functional. I also like board games. I especially like board games if they're bloody wars played out in miniature. How can I combine all these things?
I'm so glad you asked!
Now you can have your game and see it to!
(Ok, ok, I know that was awful, I'm sorry! I just couldn't resist.)

I can't believe it. I've been waiting for REPO! The Genetic Opera to come out since I first posted about it last February. Rebecca even mentioned it again in November. HOW DID I MISS IT IN THEATERS? HOW?
::weeps a frenzy of weeps::
So if you're an idiot like me, or if you just really liked it, you can now get REPO! The Genetic Opera on DVD.

I was surfing over at Morbid Outlook this morning and saw they had an interview with Devil and Mouse—"Charmingly creepy jewelry design" they called it. I could not resist taking a peek.
Oh. Mein. Gott.
They make the most adorable and squeetastic handpainted polymer clay pendants as well as some more elegant Victorian-type pieces. Oh, and they have a
