Random Thursday: Everything is Awesome!

Random Thursday (ˈrandəm ˈTHərzdā): the day on which Sarah plunks down all the odd bits and pieces she’s been sent by friends or has otherwise stumbled upon this week in an effort to avoid writing a real post, the assembly of which usually ends up taking twice as much time as sitting down and creating actual content.

No charge for the earworm!


Best Wedding Cake Ever—Lego Division

LEGO Cake by Cupcakes by SJ

According to the Facebook page of Cupcakes by S-J,
which is (who is?) based in Basingstoke,
credit for this cake goes to the owner of the page and her father.

Looks like everything IS cool, when you’re part of a team.

Especially cake!

And all this time, I was just saving the ears and the tail . . .


One Duck, Snoring

That’s it.  That’s the video.

You watched it twice, didn’t you?  Just to show someone else?  Thought so.

(Thanks, Teresa!)




“Mom!  I have to show you this!”
“This!  Watch this!”
“Huh.  Yeah,  that’s a neat ide—oh, wow!”

Make the glue gun pen shaped.  And swap the glue sticks for colored plastic.

Like this:


And then draw with it.

Like this:


Jane and I are already pricing them.

Considering the cost of 3D printers, this freestyle pen is completely reasonable, and the refill costs aren’t too bad, either . . . unless you’re a Wesson and spent half an hour pouring over the possibilities.

” . . . yeah, I know . . .”

  1. If I thought I had any artistic ability at all, I’d think about one of those 3D pens, but, sadly, I don’t. I had been resisting looking at that dance program video. Now I’m really glad I saw it!
    Where can I get that pinata rug? I think I know someone who must have one.

    • But think of the possibilities, Dee! 🙂

      Resistance is futile, right?

      And I don’t know–my BIL’s person sent that image to me and I’ve been trying to track it down ever since!
