Hi everybody! In this contest giveaway all you had to do was leave a comment on Yummy Lolly's video portfolio. We had four people enter however two withdrew their entries because they are artists of letters and not so much visual artists as this giveaway requires.

I just got back from the Hello Kitty Three Apples Exhibit at the Royal/T, a unique art space and ship in Culver City. It's a killer place with a cosplay cafe that is utterly fantabulous. While I had a really good time I have to tell you: it was pretty crowded because HK fans were waiting round the block since 6:00 am for the doors to open at 11:00am.Check out this audio tweet I made -- live
A few weeks ago I fell in love with digital artist Itkupilli. Her work totally blew my mind and inspired me to customize my own Blogger blog. If you've been reading along with my postings you'll notice I've been changing the look and feel of it like some women change shoes. I can't make up my mind! And I predict I may still continue to tinker with it. I mean all the free templates I've discovered are

My mother taught me everything I know about being creative and getting crafty. When I was growing up she would make amazing pieces of decoupage items -- anywhere from furnishings to home decor. She also used to knit all my sweaters, sew all my Halloween costumes, fix fabulous meals, and keep a beautiful home nice and clean. After all that she would handpaint china in her free time.GlamourMom doesn't

There's a new blog on the block and while it ain't really the cutest one per se, I have to tell you it's pretty frikkin' awesome. It features items regrettably posted to Etsy and so therefore it goes by the name "Regretsy". It's hilariously written by the "Regretsy Team" with the acerbic wit of a snarky post-op tranny going through manopause. I absolutely love this site and apparently so does the

I'm at the Apple Store in Sherman Oaks right now and my optical drive is borkened and needs to be fixed. Thank goodness I got AppleCare so I'm covered under warranty! What this means is that I won't have a computer of my own for the next several days. However I will still do the contest so don't you worry!

Last week I made a digital "Thank You" video to Itkupilli, the designer of my blog theme and I thought I'd make another one featuring some of the cute (and cool) art she has for sale on Etsy. I love her art! She's so innovative with her designs and generous with creations. She gives away free blog stuff (like the background image you see here on my blog) and she even offers tutorials on how to customize
This tutorial will show you how to purchase a domain name through Blogger. For those of you new to blogging this means that your Blogger blog will appear at its own domain name (i.e. "http://www.MyGreatBlog.com" instead of "http://MyGreatBlog.blogspot.com". The nice part is that Google makes the process a snap. I can attest to the ease of setting up your domain name through Blogger as all my previous
