This month is a joint effort by Mini me and myself - we created this screen printed t-shirt at an open day ( at Zion Arts Centre in Manchester) with the help of the 0ne69 printing collective who were doing a print-your-own-tshirt workshop..so we did this one..and it wasnt deliberately ' valentines' themed, but seeing as its this weekend.. happy valentines everybody! we love you for following this blog! Mwah! xxxx
Mini me drew the cats all by herself..I stitched the eyes and whiskers on later with sequins and cotton... and then she tells me that I should have stitched some ears on cat number 2 aswell, but i thought he looked cute earless..like a manx cat.
we love our cats ...our valentines wishes go out to them, and each other! who's are yours for?
SPRINGTIME DRUM&BASS MIX!! ...with birds, sunshine, carnivals, clear blue skies...what more could you need ??! half an hour of bouncing around like bunnies on spacehoppers while you spring clean the kitchen.

Ok not the most exciting post, but as its the same temperature in the UK as it is in the South Pole, OFFICIALLY!!! I need some god damn ways of conserving the heat in my flat, which has very high ceilings and very huge windows.
Ittook me an entire episode of 'The Bill' to sew these muthaz up. Got the ace fabric at a bargain price from Arkadash in the Northern Quarter. Its very opulent - all the black bits are flocked. It reminds me of a kind of Tim Burton fantasy garden sort of style..which reminds me - I cant WAIT for his new 'Alice' film to come out!!!
winging its way (in the Batmobile of course ) to anyone who hasnt already got one yet... guaranteed by New year 2010 delivery ( not partiularly organized this year with the ol' xmas card sending mission)
As " GOD DAMN IT ALEXIS!! ' has been the phrase du jour since my friends got their prized Dynasty DVD box set last month, I thought this would be their ideal xmas present.
Symbolically, Krystal is fading into the background in this 3D photo collage wit 3 layers..the middle layer actually being a Denver, Colorado skyline ( how about that for attention to detail hee hee ) and the uber glamorous Joany Collins, of course in the forefront dahlinks! The frame was gold leafed for extra camp bling, and i did have a photo of the gold leafing process, but my camera decided it didnt want to upload that one - the joys of digital photography..they didnt have THAT to deal with in 1980's Denver did they? no..just diamonds, love triangles,oil rigs and big hats.
