This one does not use plastic surgery to keep in good shape, just Duct tape. It is actually called at the movies but I like the word icons, especially when you consider the fervour that "Twilight" generates....

I love Christmas however I am glad when it is over and we can go forward with more stimulating things.... like eating all the Chocolate that I gratefully received for Christmas and playing with my new stamps. Here is a new image that was inspired by the wonderful Elegia's fantastic women digital sheet (do have a look in her shop) and elephants. As the snow has only just melted in most parts of my area I wanted something hugely removed from snow ice and cold.

Every Christmas enough wrapping paper is chucked in the bin to cover Gurnsey (have a look at recyclezone for some facts and figures.) This is bollocks, just cover it in paper and tie a bow.
I have decided to wage war this Christmas, on wrapping paper. I am going to use bags (made and bought) and recycle old wrapping paper and packaging. I will try to use bags as much as possible so that they can be passed, on re-used, given to the ugly ect.
Above is an example of the pyjamas that are given immortality (ok maybe just a bit more time) by being turned into gift bags.
Join ME and save the channel islands! Bergrac needs YOU!

I have had one of my ATCs (artist trading cards) published in the craft stamper I am over the moon and very pleased to be published in such a well thought of mag.
The ATCs are not yet up on the site but I will publish a link when they are, just another step towards global domination.

here are two modes of transport that I intend to implement when I rule the world.
I can not wait to see top gear, James May on the lily pad talking about the handling and whether he can get radio 2 reception. Clarkson would be moaning about the drag on the old Meg and Mog model.

this is my entry to the Art on the dark side challenge of day of the dead. This is my version of santa muerte. The writting is from the graphics fairy the glam wench is from the wonderful vintage images and the overlayed skull is from the digital halloween kit from itkuppli.
thank you minions

I have been having a great time playing with my new photoshop elements, or as I said a couple of days ago Photoshop Elephants. This is one of the things that I have created with said elephants and the help of the wonderful itukupilli, please click on her shop banner on my blog and encounter some of her delights.

This is my entry to the art on the dark side challenge which is black. I really love this image of an angel and child that I found on the graphics fairy and the saying is a favorite of mine. It is one of those sayings that sounds all mystic but is also factual, a bit like you can't make a silk purse from a sow's ear also factual and about as mystic as Suffolk Bouys get.

Here are my entries to the art on the dark side Halloween outfit challenge. the bat lady images are from the graphics fairy and the art is from a Gotham web site and bat images are from an old illustration on the web - all photo shopped elements -ed together in one glorious mass.
As we are in a heatwave, I thought that I would give you tips to keep you warm.
Put a blanket underneath your flat/fitted sheet - the more layers underneath the better.
Make sure your radiators are clean and dust free
Put a sheet of aluminum foil behind your radiators, this will reflect the heat out.
Investigate if you can get a warm front grant to improve your home.

Put your tin cans containing food upside down when you store them. This will do two things:
1- Make it easier to get the last bit out of the tin, the food should flow out having been stored upside down.
2- Annoy the fuck out of anyone trying to go through your cupboards to find something.

After going to the Suffolk showcase and it's big way cooler sister the Royal Acdemys summer exhibition, I have been really inspired here are some ATCs that I made using the packaging of a nail varnish pack and a new stamp I bought from the wonderful Tanda stamps.
Way better than some of the bollocks on show, but art critics can be so exhibitionist.

My newest challenge is to fit the phase syphilitic ........ then the same small mamal of your choice, stoats, waesals, rabbits, voles etc. into conversation. eg "this room smells like syphilitic mole's urine." "that idea was as attractive as a syphilitic wallaby's bum." the uses are endless, espeacially at garden parties and BBQs.
Go forth my minions
There is no point in taking over the world and bending it to my will if it is a pile rotting Y-fronts. I do not recycle, save water and try to reuse whereever possible because I am a greenie but rather because when I invite other evil overloads to my planet for coffee, I want them to say how nice it is.
Also and not equal to my command above, saving the planet fills me with a great sense of smuggness. I know that is unfasionable to say how pleasurable being smug is but as Mitchell and Webb would agree smug is good.

Whilst surveying my domain and sampling the various drinks with salacious names, I made a harded cocktail making bartender blush. He matched his shirt. I therefore challenge you, dear minions, to go out and make a cocktail making bartender blush just by requesting drinks on the menu.
Go forth my minions......

Inspired by getting covered in greenfly every time I walk out the door! In the new world order only people I don't like will have to submit to the varied insolence that is greenfly interest.
I have made some more ACTs and as on all good Tony hart like progs (don't you miss Morph? Wouldn't he be better as the new house of commons speaker?) The base ATC was stamped, with a lovely Victorian design in olive chalk ink. The backgrounds from Lisa`s altered images were then stamped with same stamp in silver. This is more subdued then I wanted as the ink pad is more pad than ink. The images were then pieced together and added (also from Lisa`s altered images.)
Lovely Lisa's site is a digital down load site which means that I can be all "ya, like I'm saving the world (for domination!)by not creating so much waste, like and ya no airmails." Or I could if I was a Chelsea birdette, but I am not I am an Evil Little TV set and don't you forget it.

I was never sure whether ATC Artist Trading Cards were bollocks or not. As a crafter who like most others trys to save crafting pennies but, again like most, turns into Gollum whenever bling is introduced or new basic grey products are introduced.....my precious dribble dribble.
As the craft companies know our weakness for huge amounts of stuff, I thought ATCs were just another marketing ploy until I tried them.
They are such good fun! I have been making them this weekend an have very much enjoying playing with effects. So if you like making card have a go there are lots of swaps advertised on the net.

It is my declaration and shall henceforth be LAW that all blood sucking insects gnats, fleas and so on MUST wear full evening dress at all times. By full evening dress I mean capes high collars, the full Count Dracula reglia.

Recycling week is upon again soon 22-28 June 2009 and this year people are being asked to make pledges and suffer punishments if they fail to fulfil their pledges. I am disgusted at the punishments. Make cups of tea for a week, bring someone breakfast in bed, buy cakes. BOLLOCKS! make your self a punishment that you would rather eat your own toe nail clipings than have to do. My Punishment, which I would get a minion to perform is to kiss a local councillor with tongues.
As the newly elected cretins make my skin creep and blood boil I would rather lick a dog's testes than suck face with one of them. Especially the Green party councillor, a man who will do the same for the green party as Hitler did for vegetarians and then there is the rumor about him, the cast of Rainbow, a pound of lard and a latex goat mask. So if you are going pledge make sure that your punishment is something that will make sure that you DO NOT FAIL!

I have another challenge for you to progress along the path of minionship.
You must hold a conversation replying only in mmms, a sort of hum, but slowly and without the others involved in the conversation knowing, change the hums to sound more and more like animal sounds.
The easiest way is to start with a moo....
GO FORTH MY MINIONS!

It is time for the next BURYLETS AGM and meeting at the Sobar on Tuesday, 2nd of June. While others are hoping to save the world and money, by recycling and reusing. I am just hoping to root through other people's stuff and bring back bootie. (As in treasure not children's foot wear.)
I am all for saving the world as it means a better state of planet for me to dominate with my evil plans. No one wants to dominate Mercury do they? Why? because it makes a Essex car park after a nights dogging look attractive.
If you would like to come along and join in the joy and delight that is BURYLETS, come to the sobar at 7.30 on June 2nd the year of the fruit bat. We do not look like the above picture from the wonderful LOL cats site, unless there is no cake/coffee/beer/cocktails/new members...... it would be wise not to disappoint.

Cor look at my stash! new papers from Craftie-charlie I know by yet more craft stuff does not sound v eco friendly BUT these are not full packs of papers so instead of having papers sitting around taking up space these are only one each of every design, means you have to be careful when using. But I think this wastes less and means that my mind control CARD devices are not easy to spot as the all look different....... cool.
I also bought these stamps from the Stamp Hut in Bury St Edmunds. I felt a bit of a prune as I had been bidding on E-bay and there they were the whole time and I didn't have to pay postage. We are so lucky to have 3 craft shops in Bury. Cambridge does not have one decent one in the town center but it does have the mecca that it Soham industrial estate featuring two warehouse units full of dribblesome stuff. LUSH!

I have discovered a universal truth tonight, aided by several very nice tasty snowballs from the lovely So Bar in Bury St Edmunds.
All songs sound happy when sung fast in a Mexican accent. This proved by several experiments using sad beautiful songs and perverting them.
Examples to try:
Everybody hurts -REM
Everyday is like Sunday -Morrissey
Something in the way -Nirvana
So go out and experiment, let me know your findings.

Unless you are in a crypt you will have sniffed the air and been confronted by the smell of elections. I am not going to urge you to vote for anyone just vote for someone. This does not include the BNP. If you are interested in voting for the BNP I would respectfully suggest that this blog is not one you should be reading. As you can see from my photo I am a beautiful yellow and vintage teak television set .
I would also draw any BNP supporters/war historians to the "Battle of Britain" posters which feature a Polish spitfire.
So as they say on cuteoverload "vote, vote like a baby stoat." Stoats are well known for their love of voting and have keen interest in democracy and can often be seen discussing the poltical issues of the day - if only they could type Katey Pryce would not be headline news.
Please vote and if you don't then shut up and do not whinge about a system that you too lazy to take part in.

I have just wasted precious minutes of my life watching putrid emo romance. I was watching it with someone who did enjoy it and had to clamp my teeth shut so as not to grind them to dust. I longed for Buffy to appear and stake everyone in the film so as to save me from the lamentable dialogue and "vegetables could do better"acting.
I love hammer horror and frequently watch the films to get inspiration as to what to create in my lab. However, I believe not even the giant blood sucking moth could compete with the horror that is the dialogue on this film "are you talking to me about the weather?" "yes, I guess so."
Rest assured minions when I rule the world, this film will only be used as a torture device.

Greetings minion, I am Evil Edna and I wish to take over the world. I have various mind control devices such as C.A.R.D.S and C.R.A.F.T.S no I am NOT telling you what the letters stand for! Do I look like a Bond villain? why did they tell him the domination plan? just shoot the bugger don't tell him everything including where the reset button is. Please see the below website for the correct way for an evil overlord to behave. Not that you will be an overlord when my plans come into play. However every minion should be schooled. http://www.eviloverlord.com/lists/overlord.html I, unlike the bond evil gerbil genius, live in beautiful Bury St Edmunds, rather than a stupid volcano. If you want to spend your evenings planning world domination and watching CSI it is best to live in really nice surroundings rather than some chav volcano. Do not expect me to be a kind, nice or well spelt world dominator, I will leave that to Stephen Fry. Now minion go forth and say the word onion in as many conversations as possible, prove your worth..... EE
