Funny Valentines: Slime Yours!

Once Halloween and Christmas is over, I’ve often gone into a slump because my collecting bug gets zapped. Valentine’s Day, even having a wonderful husband, has always been a little nauseating with all the very saccharine sentiments in the store displays and everything hosed down with Pepto Bismol Pink. I love vintage Valentines, as many of them were downright weird and I simply loved the old artwork so much more. Few of today’s Valentine designs could beat them, in my book.

Until Now.

Possibly, some of the companies that produce the classroom Valentine Packs receivedĀ complaints about not having products that boys could have fun giving without seeming “girly”, which is of course the kiss of death in some kid circles. Or perhaps boys and girls wanted something a bit less run-of-the-mill, with options that didn’t have the latest cartoon character screaming at themĀ from the front of the card. Maybe they just wanted something a little different.
If that’s what happened, the designers responded.

The first of the many screwy new Valentines I have uncovered this year comes from, of all places, Target’s dollar section. They are amazing, adorable, and just a little…odd. Which of course made me squeal with delight over them. WIthout further delay, I now present: SLIME VALENTINES. šŸ˜€

Each Valentine comes on a card of four that you separate with scissors(they aren’t perforated). They all read “Slime Yours,Ā Valentine”, and each comes with a mini tub of slime “putty”.

Yeti Alert: Bath & Body Works Hand Sanitizer Holder!

Oh. God. You guys. I really only go in B&BW at Halloween and Christmas, since at Halloween they have stuff I wanna get and at Christmas they have stuff I wanna give. I went in to do a little Christmas shopping, as I had a lot of coupons built up, and I bought some of their extremely cute and creative hand sanitizer pocket bottles for stocking stuffers, etc. With the bottles come little holders of various girly types for hanging them onto your purse, backpack or belt loop. Behold, this stood before me:

Afterween 2016: Drawloween Catch-Up!

Well, it has been a wacky month here at WeirdCrest. I just got too involved with keeping things going while Steve is gone to keep up with Drawlloween. So last night, I cracked open the sketchbook and scribbled these out in no particular order, but I did complete them all! They are a bit blurry because I simply took photos of the pages with my phone instead of scanning them. But they’re all there! Behold!

Halloween Countdown 2016: A Visit to Randy’s Pumpkin Patch!

There’s a pumpkin patch I’ve meant to visit every year near where I worked today. Finally went. I took lots of pics, as I had the whole place to myself. I imagine it has a lot more energy on a cool fall evening, but it was still fun to look at everything. I am generally not a fan or today’s inflatable ornament overload, but some of the ones this guy had are quite funny.
