Life Lately

 I've moved Popcorn out of her initial setup and into a little terrarium under one of my movie shelves!  She's become much more active and has been eating really well.  I love having one of my favorite Quyen Dinh prints sitting behind the terrarium.  If you haven't noticed...I really love pastels :)

 After launching my Etsy shop last Saturday, I've been having so much fun packaging orders and sending them out!  In addition to making my first sales, I added a new Star Trek design and decided to offer custom and bulk ordering options!

 I baked up these delicious Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Cookies and had entirely too much fun packaging them up for the bake sale we're having at work this week.  I'd be fibbing if I said I didn't want to just eat them all myself with a giant glass of ice cold milk right after they came out of the oven.  I was a self control ninja though, and only had a couple ;)

Loving these two cats.  Of the four that we have, Wesley and Sprinkles get along the best.  It was so cute finding them like this on our dog Brandi's bed.  They've officially taken it over and Brandi almost never uses it.

Movie Recommendation // Snowpiercer

It's been quite a while since I did a movie recommendation post, but I've been meaning to share quite a few with you all!  Today's recommendation is for a really great film titled Snowpiercer.  I will admit that before I watched it, I knew absolutely nothing about it other than the fact that I hoped it would be better than the name.  For some reason, the title was really silly sounding to me.  Boy am I glad I didn't judge the movie by the title.  It's excellent!

Plot Summary from IMDB:

Set in a future where a failed climate-change experiment kills all life on the planet except for a lucky few who boarded the Snowpiercer, a train that travels around the globe, where a class system emerges.

Alright so first things first: the cast.  The cast for this is FANTASTIC!!  Chris Evans, Jamie Bell, Tilda Swinton, John Hurt, and Ed Harris?!  Jeeez!  I totally did not recognize Chris Evans in the very beginning, but let me tell bearded and dirty is a really good look for him (I know what you're thinking...what ISN'T a good look for him right?  Seriously though.)  Tilda Swinton always blows me away, but her performance as a dorky evil bitch villain is simply amazing.  You'll love hating her-I promise.

Also...this sweet bubbly school teacher is fucking nuts.  Sorry, I know this photo seems out of place, but I couldn't do this recommendation without an image of her. 

So aside from the cast, what did I love so much about Snowpiercer?  The colors, cinematography, and plot.  I'm gonna repeat myself and say that not only was I skeptical that this film was going be any good after reading the title, but after reading the synopsis...I was almost sure that it was too outrageous to pull off.  You've basically got an apocalyptic dystopian society on a never ending train ride from hell where the leader has taken it upon him/herself to separate it's passengers into a caste system and things get BAD.  Really really bad. 

This is Chris Evan's after finding out that you haven't seen this go watch it!! :)

Already seen Snowpiercer?  I'd love to know your thoughts on it!!!

Oh Rocky Shop Launch!

My Etsy shop is officially open for business you guys!!!

I was so nervous to hit that button and publish my shop, but it's super exciting to finally see all of my designs together in one place.  I'll be working on adding new designs regularly, and introducing additional products (prints, jewelry, etc.) over time.  Let me know if there are any characters or designs you'd like to see in the future!

I can't stop playing this song!!!

I've been working on creating new designs in preparation for the shop launch!  Here are a few of the newest designs!

Pennywise and Dexter!  

 Matthew and I went to see Tusk on Monday, and oh my gosh...dude...this movie is so fucking funny!!!  It's definitely super creepy, but I wasn't expecting it to be so funny!  I can't wait to buy it on Blu-ray when it's released!  I couldn't help myself, and did an illustration with one of my favorite quotes from the movie.
