Tiny Cranky Haley: Knitting and Cat Farts | The Zen of Making

The first animated Tiny Cranky Haley ever!

Every day, it’s knitting and cat farts. Every. Single. Day. (And sometimes in stereo, when Pixel Cat gets in on the action!)

Note: Before anyone gets wound up, yes, the cats are eating an appropriate high-quality wet cat food as recommended by our vet. Alas, living things do fart, and farts are stinky.

Sunday Snapshot: Crafty Forensics with Tailor’s Chalk

Sunday Snapshot: Crafty Forensics with Tailor's Chalk | The Zen of Making

This week, I learned that, if you have a razor blade and some patience, you totally can dust for fingerprints with powder scraped from tailor’s chalk. (Actually, I used a razor-edge seam ripper, but same difference.)

I also learned that I’m friends with exactly the right people, as none of them were even remotely surprised when I MacGyvered up said crafty latent print action.

The fingerprint in question.

(Full disclosure: My dad is a police officer, so this isn’t exactly a random skill. I grew up knowing how to dust for prints.)

On a somewhat related subject: I also accidentally created the first of what may become a series of craft-related murder mystery art photos. (I didn’t *mean* to look dead in the picture, but, well, there you have it.)

So, uh, do you think that maybe my subconscious and/or the universe is trying to tell me to write a craft-related cozy mystery series? Because it kind of seems that way to me.

Tiny Cranky Haley: Reporting Live from Moth Hell

Tiny Cranky Haley: Reporting Live from Moth Hell | The Zen of Making

This week’s radio silence is brought to you by the letter M.

Now, let us have a moment of silence for the 1/3 of my yarn stash and 1/2 of my wardrobe that is no longer with us.

On the bright side, when I’m finally done with this nonsense, I’m going to write one heck of a blog post about saving your wardrobe/yarn and fabric stash/sanity while battling the horror that is the clothes moth. Because, turns out, moths are like honey badgers. They don’t give a shit how clean your apartment is—they’ll still find a way to eat your stuff.
