Clean cup, clean cup, move down…

Posted in Art, Projects by

Move down, move down, move down, move down… And now my dear, as you were saying?

Alice in Wonderland is probably one of my most favorite Disney films so it is only fitting that I create a piece or two honoring my love. Here is a look of the Alice in Wonderland inspired Mad Tea Party piece that I am working on. Once complete it will be listed in my Easy shop. So far, coming up with 4 different patterns that matched each of the cups but that were all the same color proved to be the most challenging. I also wanted to incorporate hearts into every element as a nod to the Queen of Hearts herself.

To give you an idea of how big each tea cup is, they measure roughly 2 1/2 inches tall. I plan to mount this in a shadowbox.

Nooligan : The Art of HaiNaNu Saulque

If you have been around my blog or Instagram for a while you will know that I am an avid toy collector. Sadly due to my move, I currently do not have a lot of space to display my vast collection so it has kind of been put on the back burner. I have acquired a toy here and there, but nothing like I used to. Most of the toys that I collect have pieces done by artists that I really love such as Junko, Tara McPherson, Jeremiah Ketner, etc. I have never been one to collect prints, mostly because I have no where to hang them – but the other day when I was in Empires Comics Vault feeding my comic book addiction, I was greeted by a few prints at the cash register. One of them was the print pictured above.

Ben, the owner, told me that the artist, Hai-Na-Nu “Nooligan” Saulque, will create a print, do a limited run of 100 and then retire the print. I knew then and there that because of the unique styling coupled with my love of Disney that I could not pass up the opportunity to own it. It’s currently tucked away in a safe place until I find a suitable frame and a place to hang it. Check out his site to see some of his other pieces – fingers crossed he does some more Disney stuff! (and yes I know that Snow White was not always a Disney franchise, but… I’m a Disney girl living in a Disney world. So there.)

2012 in review…

Hello dollfaces! It’s been a hot minute since I have had the chance to sit down and update my lovely little blog. There has been a ton going on in life, which I will touch on soon. I hope everyone had an incredible Christmas, and I can’t believe that it’s New Year’s Eve! So instead of rambling on about what’s going on, I’m going to take this time tonight to look back on some moments from the past year.


1 – One of the first pictures of me earlier this year in January.
2 – Did a ton of dancing at Asylum, which I so lovingly called my $4 therapy session. Barcode shut down in January and Asylum moved to The Park.
3 – I attended Baconfest with friends and had my first maple bacon donut from Doughbots here in Sacramento.
4 – Started hitting the gym to burn off some feelings instead of eating them.


5 – Spent a lot of time at parks on the swings.
6 – Dug out my old Game Boy and started playing some old games.
7 – Finally moved my bed out of my closet.
8 – Something died in the wall at work and we tore the office apart trying to find exactly where. We were unsuccessful.


9 – I had some really blue hair for a while.
10 – Richard and I went to Knotts Berry Farm after foiled plans to go to Disneyland.
11 – Despite the minor hiccup, we did spend 2 days at Disneyland and it was one of the major highlights of my year.
12 – We also hit the Santa Monica Aquarium and saw a bunch of awesome creatures that had been right under my nose for the 14 years that I lived in the area.


13 – In March I also took a pole dancing class which ran into April. I had never been more bruised and banged up in my entire life. I also felt myself getting stronger, but ultimately had to quit because it’s freaking expensive.
14 – I made this fancy pants Easter basket for Richard.
15 – We visited my parents and had a chance to show Richard my Dad’s studio.
16 – I packed up my toy collection due to lack of space.


17 – My hair grew exceptionally long.
18 – I worked a few shows that I actually enjoyed the music that was being played.
19 – I changed my name to apron according to Starbucks.
20 – I found this pallet at work and it worked perfectly to display my toy collection.


21 – Hung out with friends and kicked serious laser tag ass.
22 – Played at more parks.
23 – Started really getting into The Guild and comic books.
24 – I also tried my hand at painting.


25 – Played lots of video games to win tickets for junk.
26 – My roommate is engaged and we celebrated in Reno, NV in June and had a nice shower for her that I designed the laminates for in July.
27 – Richard and I bought an arsenal of fireworks and had a great time with friends in the driveway.
28 – A friend left for med school and we had a great time at her going away party and her now fiance’s parents house.


29 – In need of a change, I cut 14 inches off my hair. It still feels weird.
30 – Finally saw Iron Maiden in concert. AMAZING.
31 – Worked Outside Lands in San Francisco and had a great time.
32 – I was a bridesmaid for the first time for my roommate.


33 – Started to try to enjoy reading.
34 – Richard and I went to Effie Yaw and threw rocks in the water.
35 – More comic books and video games passed through my hands.
36 – Spent more time outside.


37 – Tried my hand at fancy nails that I saw on Pinterest.
38 – Spent a lot of time hanging out with a handsome fella named Midnight.
39 – Moved out of my old place and put a bunch of my belongings into storage.
40 – Started a new blog that took off.


41 – Found out that this cat has extraordinary skills.
42 – Blogged lots about food.
43 – Started writing to my best friend.
44 – Had an amazing Thanksgiving feast with my parents.


45 – Lost my job for the first time. (Hopefully the only time)
46 – Started taking an online class.
47 – Christmas!
48 – Had to put this sweet boy down way too soon.

Here’s looking to 2013 – please be safe tonight if you plan on going out!

I like to consider myself the creative type. I can crochet and knit. I make jewelry, I used to be somewhat decent at drawing (who knew you could forget how to draw!), all around pretty crafty. But, I can say that I have never really dabbled in painting. For some reason, its a medium that scares the bajesus out of me – my guess is because its so unforgiving at times. Yesterday my friend Chris and I decided that we would do a small painting and swap them. He is extremely talented (I would link his design website here, but I don’t want him to see traffic from my site to his and have him see what I have been working on for him) He’s really into squids, so I figured I would give it ago. I am pretty satisfied with how it is turning out thus far – considering its my first time of creating anything of the sort.
