Katamary Damacy do dee doo doo!

I tumbl.
I don't know if you guys know about Tumblr, but the first rule of Tumblr is that you don't talk about Tumblr.
Anyways, I have a tumblr for my favorite videogame. But it's more than a video game to me. It is almost a way of life. A lot like crochet.
With that in mind, my friend suggested that I cross my favorite mediums.
Now, I have done that before. If you will recall both the Miso and Dipp amigurumi that I have done in the past. If not, here you go xD
But what my friend was suggesting was more. And actual yarn bombing of said Katamari thing instead of the coveting of said item that I normally do (come on! How can you not love little Miso! And Dipp was for my very best buddy Lex)
 Now of course, since my friend suggested this Katamari crossover idea, I have had all kinds of ideas pop into my head. Hopefully I get the chance to explore all of them.

To start, we have what I like to call Prince on a fence.
My gf said that it looked scary, staring at her from up on the fence.

I am sad to say though, that while these pictures look awesome, they are all I have of this lovely bomb, as it did not stay up even 6 hours while I went to work.
I should start including a little note on my tags that says, "If you're gonna take this, at least do something useful with it," but I will never know either way and there is no point in worrying about what happens to it after I put it up.

Anyway, I liked it. It was good. 
And I am glad that I got out and did a new tag.
Especially a Katamari one xD

Spring has sprung in the form of Toadstools!

This last week, the crocuses began blossoming all over. The front yard was full of the beautiful yellow, purple and white flowers.
They make me so happy to look at, so small and sprouting out from the grass.
I wanted to make something that would draw everyone's attention to the wonderful little flowers.
So slowly, one at a time, I pumped out these adorible little mushrooms!
It started with only one.

Then two, but by then it was getting dark, so you couldn't see flower or mushrooms really well.

Then the cute little would be Mario Mushroom XD

Then more! Lot's more (well, 7). Pink with black spots, yellow with black spots, dark green with orange spots, red with white spots, light green with orange spots, blue with white spots, and dark red.

All in all, I love them! They turned out really well for a spur of the moment project idea. The people I am staying with really love them and all kinds of people have been stopping to look at them or just generally smiling and pointing as they walk by. That makes me feel the best. I want to jump up and down and crow when that happens!

I bet they're all posionous too, what with those hideous spots. Except maybe the fuzzy red one. Then again, it is fuzzy.
And the crocuses!! Man, they are so pretty. Victoria rocks.

Happy Birthday Dr.Seuss! Green eggs and Ham style

In 2009, Google posted a happy birthday link for Dr. Seuss.

My roommate received a calender from this cute girl in her class that lists interesting dates. One of them was Dr.Seuss's birthday.
And in my travels of flickr, I saw some interesting Dr. Seuss tributes.
So I decided, as a birthday gift to the man who created some of my favorite books to read ever, let alone when I was a child, I did my own little tribute.

Check it out.
Green eggs and ham!
I do not like green eggs and ham, I do not like them sam I am.

Not a whole bunch of awesome places!! (in a boat, in a house, in the rain!) Or with awesome things XD (Goat! Mouse!)
These were a lot of fun to make.

I also made some eggs of varying colors. A rainbow if you will.

My roommate "egged" me into it XD
