I want your skulls

Thursday, August 16th, 2012

It is so nice to share your life with a crafty person. I am always finding cool things online that I would most likely just throw my money at. Lucky for me, Leah says we can do it at home for much cheaper.

The latest project we tackled is so simple and easy, even I couldn’t screw it up! I came across some skull shaped sugar cubes that would look great in my coffee mug, which is shaped like… you guessed it… a SKULL. Leah said that we could easily make those ourselves. Amazon had a good selection of candy molds, so we had no problem finding something to suit our needs.

Leah had the great idea of adding some vanilla extract for added flavor, and it gave the skulls some neat weathered effect as well. And let me tell you, they taste great in my morning cup a’ joe. Head on over to her blog for the very easy recipe and details.

Happy Belated Zombie Jesus Day

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2012

Another Easter has come and gone. I definitely ate my weight in Cadbury Mini Eggs again this season. Maybe my sugar induced diabetic coma is the reason I missed out on a few awesome ideas to help with your holiday.

Thinkgeek is a great place to shop for geeks of all stripes, and they are offering their Chocolate Zombie Bunny again.

However, if you are a thrifty little monster like me, you will want to save your hard earned cash and try your hand at making your own bloody little bunnies.

Check out Criminal Crafts amazing version. I like this one much more than the simple thingeek version.

Another DIY version can be found at Strumpet’s Crumpets.

Both versions look fairly easy and loads of fun. We may be too late for this year, but look for our zombie bunny army to pop up in your Easter basket next year!

 

 

Vicious Valentines

Monday, February 13th, 2012

I love what Warren Ellis has to say about V-Day… but for those of you who want to catch the detached eye and win the spurting heart of your favorite ghoul, might I suggest some sites that offer interesting holiday cards?

Marcelo Gallegos has some nice pieces up on his site for those with a love of Cthulhu or creepy cupcakes.

Have a zombie fetish? I know I do! Then these Walking Dead cards are just what you need.

Want something just a little bit older and stranger? Here are some scans of vintage cards with a weird and sinister bent posted on facebook.

Anyone who hungers for love and tasty meat snacks will want to go to the Jack Link’s site to check out their sasquatch valentine’s.

I sent a couple of the Walking Dead ones to Leah. Much to her chagrin, I also sent some of the sasquatch ones. I declared to her on this past New Year’s Eve that 2012 would be the year of the sasquatch. She was not nearly¬† as amused by this as I was. However, if I keep it up I feel she may come around to my side. Or… bludgeon me to death with a DVD copy of The Legend of Boggy Creek.

 

Sorry for the break!!

It has been quite a while since I have posted here. I have had some very interesting times of late, but I want to get back to posting here more often. So, to start off… here is something neat for those Monster families who carpool:
