I craft, therefore I am

welcome to my crafts blog. if I post something you made, please drop me a line so I can post a link to your site - thanks! enjoy :)

meet Mr. and Mrs. Egg.

they love eachother very much.

Mr. Egg bought Mrs. Egg a large bag of M&M’s. and Mrs. Egg had bought Mr. Egg a large bag of Jelly Beans.

because they had eaten so many colourful sweets, a few days later Mrs. Egg gave birth to very colourful Egg children!

as the children grew older they loved to go play in the garden, with a ball, a tennis racket, a kite…

one day they had so much fun that they forgot the time - Mr. Egg was worried, but Mrs. Egg knew they would be alright.

tomorrow I’ll have an Easter brunch at my mom’s house. my brother is coming with his girlfriend and her kids, a girl who turned six a few weeks ago, and a boy of seven going on eight. I’m going to hide coloured eggs in the garden, and above is the story I will tell beforehand.

I grabbed my sketchbook and a few pencils and did a couple of quick cartoons to illustrate the story ;)

Happy Easter to those who celebrate :)

You know, funny story: There’s this craft store called Michaels. Look, my sister knits, and she goes to Michaels. So my sister called me and she’s like, “Oh my god, I’m at Michaels, picking up yarn. You have a poster at Michaels.” I’m like, “What?” She’s like, “There’s a poster, there’s a Falcon poster at Michaels.” I’m like, “Holy s**t!” She’s like, “I’m gonna come and pick you up, and we’re gonna see your poster in this store.” So she picks me up and we go to Michaels.

We go in, and I see the poster and I’m like, “Oh, this is….” She’s like, “I know, I know.” I said, “I’m gonna sign these posters.” I was like, “That would be amazing, you buy a poster and it’s like, actually signed by the Falcon.” Like, it would blow my mind. So I go to the front, I buy a Sharpie, I run back to the back of the store. And she’s like, “I’m gonna take a picture of you signing it.”

I’m in this store and I’m signing all the posters. The manager comes out, he’s like, “Hey, whatcha doing?” I was like, “Oh man, I’m signing these posters so when people buy ‘em, they’re signed.” He’s like, “Well, people are not gonna buy ‘em if they’re signed.” And I was like, “No, no, no, it’s cool. I’m pretty sure there won’t be a problem.” And he goes, “Yeah, but it is gonna be a problem, you’re messin’ up my inventory.” And I’m like, “No, my man, trust me. I mean, I’m the Falcon, that’s me!” And he goes, “Yeah, right. You’re gonna buy those posters.” I said, “What?” He’s like, “You’re gonna buy all those posters or I’m gonna call the police.”

He rolls up all the posters and goes to the front of the store. And I had to buy like 60 Falcon posters that I signed in Michaels.
