Once upon a time, in between sessions at the Erma Bombeck Writers’ Workshop, I met a fellow humor blogger named The Suniverse and we hit it off like a needle and thread.
Well one day, whilst admiring her cross-stitched “SUCK IT!” avatar, I came to discover that she actually designed and stitched that splendiferous creation herself! Awestruck, I pledged my allegiance to her forever.
And then I showed her my boobies.
No, not those boobies.
Yes, as soon as I learned how to crochet several years ago, I decided to make some all-natural dryer balls as an eco-friendly substitute for fabric softener. I kept seeing these bumpy rubber dryer balls in stores and suspected I could make my own set that would be better for the environment…and more fun too.
And because I’m me, I designed them to look like a pair of boobies.
Well don’t you know I liked them so much that I made pairs for my mom and aunt for Christmas that year and they were a HUGE hit! (Well, actually more like a C-Cup hit.)
Look at the detail I put into those areolae, for crying out loud! That is art, y’all. Can I get a witness?
Even little Bucket Head enjoys my 100% wool dryer boobies.
He was pretending to be Mommy. Obviously. (Note the placement…low and wide.)
Anyhoooo, after I showed The Suniverse my boobies, we got to talking. “Hey, I bet we’re not the only bloggers out there who craft with a sense of humor.”
And thus, an idea was born.
The Suniverse cross-stitched our Craft Whores logo! Isn’t it dreamy?
So what do you say? Are you in? (That’s what she said.)
Take the next two weeks and come up with your own naughty or inappropriate craft to blog about and link up. The only rule is that it has to be something that YOU create…no stealing photos from the Internet, m’kay? Also, you need to have a blog post to link up. You can always create a quick blog on Tumblr for free if necessary. No big whoop.
Speaking of twisted crafters, check out this little graphic Lady Estrogen whipped up for us. How fun is THAT?!
The link-up will take place September 13 – 17, 2012. We’ll remind you in the meantime, don’t worry.
Then, we’ll have a panel of fabulous judges review the entries and select the top three naughty crafts. Yes, there are judges. Kick-ass judges. More details coming, but trust us, you’ll love them.
The Suniverse and I will announce the winners on Thursday, September 27, 2012. And there will be prizes! But more on that soon. The build up is half the fun, right?!
Alrighty then. Fire up those hot glue guns and let’s do this!
Need some more ideas? Check out some other naughty cross-stitches made by The Suniverse!
And make sure you don’t miss out on any of the announcements about things like prizes and judges by subscribing to my blog. You’ll be glad you did.
With glitter and sequins in all the right places,
