As it turns out, I’m not quite done with dead sparrows. Here are some life-sized sculptures I recently made from Super Sculpey and coloured with “hammered” silver spray paint.

Just in Time For Winter Holiday Fun Gift Celebration Turkey Time!

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.)

What an Honor!

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.
