I got lazy and made the banana bran muffing recipe off the back of the Aldi bran cereal box. Could use some tweaks but otherwise it’s pretty good!
Stuff I’m really into now for some reason: Trail mix. Bought some peanuts, yogurt covered raisins and mixed dried berries, added some milk chocolate chips I already had, and voila! Note to self: Use a tea spoon instead of a soup spoon to measure out the components because I think it made too much. Not that I’m going to have trouble eating it all … but there’s a reason I’m not making it all up at once. :)
I finally made up the five pairs of knee socks I bought months ago into new leggings for the babies! Especially needed since two pair of the ones I first made mysteriously vanished.
I may be ready to get a new jacket after seeing this.
MY FRIEND DIANE MADE A ZIPLOC BAG JACKET
In celebration of the new Star Trek film FINALLY coming out, here is every main character from every series of Star Trek with carefully hand drawn silhouette profiles of all the actors who played them!
I take commissions!
(No really, I do!)
So ferociousj asked me to make him a Voyager-era Star Trek dress uniform! Do you know how much I love Voyager?! (Answer: a lot).
This version deviates slightly from the originals (for reference) in that it closes in the front instead of a back-zip. The commission was for a special occasion (Star Wars/Star Trek wedding) so I worked to make it as close to a tailored jacket as was appropriate.
The jacket is fully lined and interlined, and closes with a hidden zipper and snaps. It’s made from brushed cotton and cotton twill (instead of the screen-accurate wool gabardine). I hand-made the neck trim from cording and grossgrain ribbon because fuck that trim - I swear I saw it everywhere in the 90s and now no one seems to have it. Ah, well.
Overall, it was a great project to work on and FEROCIOUSJ LOOKS AWESOME IN IT YES HE DOES.
Reblob to normal blob.
This is basically my favorite piece of clothing right now. I’ll put up some shots from the wedding if/when they become available!

My mom hung on to my collection of My Little Pony toys from 1983 and 1984 and we brought them out again for A to play with when she visits. I did not realize just what 30 years of attic livin’ can do to a vinyl toy — damn those things were grimy.
Some googling found me this tutorial, and using one of the many sample shampoos in the guest bathroom at my parents brought great results! I couldn’t believe the amount of dirt I washed out. I felt so much better about A playing with them once they were clean.
The site also has some pony hair styling tutorials and I just may have indulged in a little hair curling …
