Buck Up, Pal.

My friend got her heart broken once. And then, soon after, she got it broken again, which was dumb on the heartbreaker's part. When this initially happened, I made her a crying mix. This time, I thought I should send her something to make her smile. I decided to make her a very specific kind of care package with stuff I know that she likes and has a significance to our friendship.

I made her a book to complement her first mix.


I had to print it on my beautiful Epson Stylus 1400, also known as my baby.


Then I had to to cut all the pieces out. I even went crazy and used a new blade, so I wouldn't injure myself!


It made some pretty interesting trash.


Then I put it together.




Some images require some explanation, but I think it would be boring except for me and Marianna.


Some images should be enjoyed universally. What is more lovely than a crazy hamster or a baby pug?















Ugly Plaid Shirt

Marianna was wearing ugly plaid before it was cool and will continue to wear it until the day she croaks. Therefore, I knew that an ugly plaid shirt was required.




Even the label was perfect.


When I bought it, the shoulder pads were pre-removed! What a great deal!

Whitman's Sampler.
Do I really need to explain this? I just hope she eats the whole thing in one sitting.
