The Frame Job

Last weekend, we finally, FINALLY got some frames for some of our favorite pieces from the past two Comic Cons.
I've been going to Comic Con since 2004 (a recent reminisent trip to LJ reminded me) and the Tenor has been going since 2011 when my brother kindly lent to his pass to Sunday to his (then) future bro-in-law.

In 2012 Tenor and I were married and we got our first piece of art together:
by Mike Yamada and Victoria Ying
Not going to lie, when we saw this...the Tenor and I "awww'd" cause it was our first con as a married couple (I have some sappy moments...I blame him for bring that out heehee).

Next we framed a gift from our friends Topher and Jay:

I think caricatures are really entertaining and seeing all 11 (pre-Capaldi announcement) in this form makes for a funny comparison. I love that it's different shape too! Makes for a interesting piece!

Last up is an epic calendar we found last year! It can tell you what day, any date (say your birthday) will land on on in any year between 1600 and 9999 (you might have seen it already on my Instagram).

And, I got a frame for this photo I won from a giveaway at Harlynn's blog Mind Your Madness, taken by Mandy of Ginger Mandy Photography

So the walls in the apartment are looking a lot better!

This week I've been working on mailing some stuff, and playing around with clay. I've made a snitch and Thor's helmet so far (I blame my dad's love for comics and mythology,  Adventures in Babysitting, and, EverWorld for my love of Thor and Loki...and then Tom Hiddleston [: )
OK, they're a bit dinky, but it was my
first try at anything like this in l3 years
And Well, that's what I working on...and this here blog.

How was your week?

    1. Well, it's not really us, but it was how we felt after going together, and we liked how it felt like that :)

    1. Do it! My friend's house has a lot of those, and they have movie posters! It's like being in a movie theater!

  5. That first one is really adorable! And I love the Doctor Who ones!! We have so much art and not enough wall space!! We have an empty spot but it's by my side of the bed I'm afraid of frames hitting me on the head while I sleep!!

    1. OMG! I'm the same way! I don't trust things to not fall on me either. It's good though that you've got some of your art up though.

    1. If you have a Michael's near you, be sure to get their app, as they always have a coupon! Also WalMart. (But Michael's and Aaron Bros have better selection of frame sizes).

    1. I was really stoked! I was worried for a second I wouldn't find and affordable frame.
      I LOVE posters. I used to have major collage on my walls when I lived with my parents. One wall as all musicians, the other surf posters, and the other were cartoons, and anime and TV shows.
