  • Even this Buzz is just a bit of the hand and forearm, I’m still counting it. My daughter broke her arm a month ago and got her short-cast today. She let me draw on it. Then she let me paint on it! I used acrylic paint and sealed it with spray gloss. You should have seen us in the dark on the backporch, me spraying my daughter’s arm with clear coat. One of our neighbors walked up the steps while we were out there. I can’t imagine what he must have thought.

    While working on this I got an idea for a possible project in two parts. First, become a cast painter. People would pay me to paint their kid’s cast! Second, to go to the local children’s hospital and offer my services for free in special cases as deemed by the hospital. We’ll see if I actually follow through with this idea. Doubtful, but fun to think about.

    Next time she breaks her arm I’m going to make her get a white cast.


    I’ve been wanting to make a Buzz Lightyear clock for years. I bought the wood and clock movement 3+ years ago and just never got to it. Finally the stars aligned and I pulled out the materials and got to work. My original plan for years was to mimic the swinging leg type of clock like the Elvis clock I had back in the day.

    I never planned on making a Buzz Lightyear Nutcracker Doll. I was in Hobby Lobby, a local craft store, and saw some wooden Nutcracker blanks and thought, I wonder if I can paint that to look like a Buzz Lightyear? I took some pictures and decided to figure that out when I got home. [click to continue…]

    This week we’re keeping it real with the stories that make MMD moments the little miracles that they are. Those dealing with depression, bi-polar or anxiety will appreciate this.


    This episode we’re catching up on a week and a half of MMD’s: Stressing over Sonic, a $200 mistake, a pleasant thank you, getting a library card so the kids could get books, making Harry Potter wands… and my son’s reaction when I gave him one.


    This week we’re celebrating not having to go to the Price is Right Live, teasing my son about being adopted, and playing Monopoly with the kids for the first time.
