Thank you so much to everyone who’s already donated and ordered from me. I truly appreciate it.
I haven’t updated my site in ages. There are far too many reasons to explain. One of those reasons (and one of the reasons I don’t care to take the time to explain) is the first of two carpal tunnel surgeries. I shouldn’t really be typing. …Oh, and I’m not. Right, right. I’m pounding my face against the keyboard and it’s just pure Shakespearean-chimps-at-typewriter chance that words and coherent sentences are the result. It’s really creepy.
Anyway, I want to share at least a peak at what’s developing in my world of busking. Pavement art is getting progressively hard on my body… So, I’ve decided to start building an other-worldly walk-about character who will surely help me ruin the remaining parts of my body left undmanged by chalk. So far, I call her “Faunus”.
I’ll let the photos do the typing now, but stay tuned for a finished, full body faun, late in 2011…
Ok, I celebrate Christmas. Let’s just get that out there. But whatever YOU celebrate, don’t let the occasion go by without seriously considering which Franken Toy you’d like to adopt!
They’re getting all sorts of blog famous, so you should really find your special guy before they all get Christmas’d up! (snatched up. …at Christmas time, I mean.) I’m sorry, I’ve had one sip of wine and I don’t hold my booze very well. Bear with me.)
Remember also that new Franken toys go up to the shop every week or so. If you don’t see the right one for you, keep coming back! It’s virtually a toy factory over here at my house, with adorable limbs, torsos and severed puppy heads everywhere! It’s just a matter of time before your perfect pal shows up, ready to be adopted.
So, get ready for Christmas with Franken Toys for the family!
(They’re lonely here. They cry at night, asking where their Mommies and Daddies are.)

I make toys out of other toys. As my Toys page shows, I’ve recently opened up an etsy store. For those of you who don’t know, Etsy.com is a site for hand-crafted or vintage items. You can only sell your own art — nothing that’s been hand-crafted by someone else. There are a lot of unique products and one-of-a-kinds on Etsy. A lot of great things as well as a lot of horribly regrettable things.
As a result of the popularity of Etsy and the audacity of some people who think they can sell horrible junk, there is now also a highly popular blog site (and recent coffee table book) called www.regretsy.com.
The sharp-as-sewing needles author of regretsy who goes by the pseudonym, “Helen Killer” treats the site largely as a failblog of etsy items, etsy descriptions or etsy stores, but also has categories for the weird and wonderful masterpieces who just need to be spotlighted.
WHO do you think just got featured in the “Not Remotely Crap” category??? GUesS!! No, seriously, take a guess! …No, not Matt Damon. No. …try again. No, not Dave Coulier. …Amy Grant?? What?? No, ME, you dingus!!
Yessir, I made my first 8 sales within the first 24 hours of being on regretsy, and I regret NOTHING!!

WARNING: The rest of the site contains some adult material and language. It seems a lot of etsy shops sell very adult, genitalia based crafts.
I’m super honored. I would have been honored to even have been mocked.
Good job, Helen Killer. Rock on. And don’t let any of those death threats get to you.
Most recent addition to my shop, the only driving “Wookie Mobile”, complete with wookie.
New on my toy design page is the Franken Toys Etsy shop. Head to the Etsy links and check out the whole collection. New ones are being made every day.
