It's a Deliciously Alcoholic Christmas

This year's festive treats were more alcoholic than previously made...

Irish Car Bomb cake. I used a generic Devil's Food cake mix, replaced the water with Guinness beer, baked like normal. For the frosting, I found a recipe somewhere on Livejournal's bakebakebake community... Consisted of 1 stick of butter (room temperature), 3 cups of confectioner's sugar, approximately 3 tablespoons Bailey's Irish Cream, 1 Tablespoon Jameson Irish Whiskey.
Hopefully it will be as delicious as it was fun to make!

Next up is Josh's family's "secret recipe" for Jam Sticks. So I won't post that here, but imagine a sugar cookie on meth with blackberry jam. (Postponed until more powdered sugar is acquired...)

Finally is Bailey's Chocolate Chip Cookies. It was originally Mint Bailey's Chocolate Chip, but... I don't have mint Bailey's and I can't reasonably spend $25 on a bottle of Bailey's Mint for a batch of cookies I'm not even 100% sure will be good...

ABC ATC booklet of Love!

I have been working on this freaking project for over a month. I started doing ATCs, I saw the whole "52 reasons I love you" books, and I was inspired.

ABC ATCs of Love!

Of course, I found that thinking of actual ABC reasons is actually significantly harder than 52 random reasons.


B is for Boobs!

Of course.

What else would B be for?!

O is for OKCupid, the site that brought us together.

That's their logo... Just in case you were curious.

Z is for Zombies. One of the reasons he messaged me, mentioned in his first message to me, actually!

The top of it says BRAINS... in drippy letters. I enjoyed making this.

N is for Naked Bitches, and it was actually one I got in a personal ATC swap from gozer on Craftster. It's beautiful! I can't draw people. But we both approve of naked bitches!

Magic the Gathering

This is for a Magic the Gathering swap on swap-bot.

I actually like this, I'm thinking about making it for Josh.

Too bad I don't have any more of this polka dot paper... It really pops the white.

SPOILERS! December ATC Swap

And here's another for my Ongoing December ATC swap partner, mistressH, in the UK. I usually throw in an extra, especially if it's a broad and AWESOME topic like this... So here he is!

My depressed, abused teddy bear.

Urusagalmatophilia: the sexual attraction to teddy bears.
Josh thought he needed a strap on. I think he looks too upset for that.
He has seen things that cannot be unseen.

SPOILERS!Harry Potter Ornaments, Fetishes, Cartoon Characters

This post will contain a lot of SPOILERS for swap partners in Ongoing December ATC swap and Harry Potter ornaments. You have been warned. Look no further if you don't want to know!

We'll start with a set of ATCs that have already been received. In November, I claimed coryjo for Cartoon Character Alphabet, letters P and Z.

Professor Utonium from the Power Puff Girls.

And Zoidburg from Futurama. 

Dacryphilia (or the sexual fetish of watching someone crying/sob) for the Ongoing December ATC Swap. This will be going to the UK, along with another that I have in mind... And haven't gotten to.

These ATCs are for the Harry Potter ornament swap.
Luna Lovegood, Severus Snape, and Ginny Weasley.

Front before ornament-izing.

Back before ornament-izing. I found out I screwed up who Luna is married to... But... I'll fix it. Rolf Scamander...

Cat Troubles

Made for "A Catty ATC" swap on swapbot. My partner loves siamese cats and this was as good as I could get to one... I love it, though! Personally, probably my favorite.

Done with prismacolor colored pencils and a shading tool. <3
