That is adorable!
Thanks! Here's another one of her from today.
She is just adorable. Well done on procreating!
^^ What a love!
^ You're no slouch yourself!
And....HEDGEHOG!!! Dear God, he is so cute!
I wish I had nice photos to share but............not so much. A friend gave me HOURS of cake-decorating videos from a crafting site as a gift. So, I watched about an hour or so and decided to practice. I baked about 18-20 cupcakes and tried my hand at various techniques. Lo and behold, I SUCK AT THIS!!
I have the world's shakiest hand; Don Knotts had a steadier hand than I do. Plus, I found myself without all the fancy-schamncy equipment that the online class was using, so I just kinda winged it with what little I had. I practiced on sheets of tinfoil and then tried to make the borders, stars and flowers on the cupcakes. I finally just gave up towards the end, threw sprinkles on them and "Fuck it." Hubby can take them to work; college students will eat anything.
Epic cake fails:
^not sure if those are supposed to stars or flowers. To me, it looks like little heads of lettuce.
You just can't help but smile at the two of you, Squiggy! What a nice shot!
Man Enough to get a Mud Mask
AND wear a Pink Shower Cap!
I'd eat them too!
Well, they weren't very pretty but they did taste good. Hubby forgot to take them with him this morning. I hope they won't be too stale by tomorrow. But then again, I'm sure the office staff and grad students won't be that picky.
I think I let the frosting get too warm, which made it a bit too thin. Maybe next time, I'll just get some icing and practice on a sheet of tin foil or something.
eta: took some pics of Junior the other day, as he refused to get off my keyboard. There one in Feline Follies, but here's a couple of others.
Wonder if the hubs left them home on purpose? "Sorry honey, I forgot to take the. Guess we'll just have to eat them ourselves!"
Funny how cats appear where you most have to pay attention to them - he's darling!
Oh, no. Hubby has no interest in cakes and cupcakes---the freak. He just has a memory like a sieve.
Junior thanks you for the compliment. He is pretty damn cute. He is a GIANT kitty--a Maine Coon--but he's also pretty tubby and very, very fluffy.
Looks both stunning ... and like a lot of fun! Awesome!
Here are a few of my recent captures:
^ Love the Cardinal!
Yeah, I don't get people who don't love sugar either!
Junior is very sweet looking!
Love your stuff Samuel Walters. Great sense of composition and form.
Data has a cool-looking spit curl.
And with that, yet another one of the 1,001 Sentences Likely Never to Be Spoken on the Trek BBS can be scratched off the list.
Alrighty guys here's some more pictures!
First up we have 3 pictures, (one from each magazine I've been published in as model) The red dress one is in Pump magazine which I think is based out for Australia. The second is a picture from Surreal Beauty Magazine based out of South Carolina. Finally Third we have one from my Halloween publication of Broken Image Magazine based out of California.

Next up we have some random pictures. These three are some more pictures I found from the Renaissance faire! The first picture is of me and a fair maiden. The second is of me and my friend who made his costume 100% by hand as well (we call him the onion knight). Third and finally we have this awesome steampunk knight who was so drunk he fell over a few times after I took this.
