Lost post-grad genderqueerdo wanderer working through self-awareness and empowerment. Veggie-lover, biology & nutrition student, and hopeful nutritionist. I knit, learn code, paint, lindy-hop and I like to surround myself with kitschy creepy cute crap, with spikes. I'm an egalitarian that focuses on patriarchy, conflict resolution and communication.
I REALLY LIKE THESE
LIKE A LOT A LOT
Scum Mag got me to draw their logo/banner. Cried in my sleep because it was a perfect brief.
Now! They are calling for submissions…. get onto it! (Below)
“Scum is an online literary magazine launching (at this stage) in February 2013. Scum has filthy feminist leanings and a disregard for propriety. Scum is for people who haven’t figured their lives out yet but will probably get there one day. It’s basically like that Miley Cyrus song “The Climb” except that it is not like that at all. We’re smart and sassy, but not always serious. If you have a problem with eating pizza in bed all day instead of living your dreams you are probably not a Scumbag and get out of our house.
We’ll be posting short stories, offbeat reviews, essays…whatever, but as a general rule your piece should be able to be classified as “fiction”, “rant”, “memoir”, “column” and/or “review”. You won’t always want to link your Dad or your Gran to your work on Scum because maybe it’ll be a bit rude sometimes and talk about things like nightly emissions and not shaving your legs but just do it anyway they’re just curious about your life goddamn it.”

I would very much like this light fitting for my lounge room.
(Apparently it was made by Bindle Art & Design but I can’t find it for sale anywhere!)
Why does Bmore/Hampden not have this in every establishment.
I hope they have all the lyrics to this one section and intersperse them in their house. Or get all of them and line them up on their couches
I met Andrea in San Diego last year and was immediately floored by her work. (Also, being 1/4 Romanian but still knowing almost nothing about Romania, I’m always fascinated by Romanian artists.)
From afar, the stitching and calming colors looked like the work of a doting grandmother, but up close there were images of vaginas, fetuses and a study of the myths that mothers told their daughters in Transylvania, Romania, where Ms. Dezsö, 39, was raised…
Working in the city has provided fodder for many of her ideas and for her embroidery series, which she stitched while traveling throughout the city. A woman stitching in public is viewed differently in different neighborhoods, Ms. Dezsö found.
“If I’m in Queens, people think I’m a traditional woman,” Ms. Dezsö said. “If I’m in Manhattan, it’s the hippest thing.”

How gorgeous is this?! It could be yours too, if you know how to knit that is. Originally created by Kristy Lothian, she has shared the pattern - or in her words, a “recipe” - on how to make it right here.
SO glad to find this on tumblr as it was the main reason why I ever wanted to knit and is my ultimate goal of mad knitting achievement. So far I’ve got fair isle, intarsia is not far to go!

DIY Creepy Porcelain Doll Head Night Light Tutorial from Mark Montano here. This is so easy to do and as Mark Montano explains, using a porcelain doll head with glass eyes allows the light to shine through. *This would go well with my posts using doll parts: DIY Unique Doll Arm Jewelry Display here and Natasha’s Baby Doll Parts Coat Rack here.
