Ninjas, Superheroes and Cupcakes YAY!!!

My friend Jarnifer gave me this really cool monkey superhero tank for my birthday but I felt that a full superhero monkey top was a little too much for me so I reconstructed half into the following wallet and am going to put the other half into a top for me (if I ever get around to having time to make things for myself rather than other people)...

Wallet guts...

My second cupcake coin purse ever...just need to get my act together and make a bunch to put on Etsy...This one doesn't have a zipper because well I have no money at the moment and was trying to just use supplies I had. I like how it turned out though :)
It's a ninja in case you can't tell - ninjas like cupcakes right?

The exposure is a bit off around the face piece actually...oh well

Tool swap take 2

Ok so my original swap pack got lost in the mail (booo!!!!)
so I said I would make another for my partner
but then May was horribly busy so it didn't happen for a while
but it's finally FINALLY done and here it is!!!!

the colours are bright and summery because well it's summer and she likes girly-esque things
and I think they fit nicely with the lyrics

let me tell you: hand painting things with a paint brush and faric paint is really not all that fun or easy. more frustrating, painstaking and annoying

for noncompressed/crappy quality version of photos check out my flickr



close up on detail:

firstly Rogers sucks

Ok I haven't blogged ina long while but I meant to post this when it happened...

So my internet just stopped working one Tuesday and with it my phone since we have Vonage - a broadband phone.

So I call Rogers to have them come and fix it. They refuse because since I don't have a phone there is no way for them to conirm someone is home and thus no one will actually come. So after being transfered among different people finally they agreed to come that Friday sometime between 11:00 and 2:00 (previously they said between 9 and 5) and that they would put in a confirmation code so the person would just come without calling.

So...I take Friday off work and wait. and wait. and wait. finally at 2:15 I call from a pay phone to ask why no one came. I am informed that they called and since no one was home they didn't come. So I once again explain that I have no phone because the internet is not woring, he confirms that yes they put in the code so the guy would come anyway. So why didn't he come? Because I don't have a phone. So we continue in this circle for about 20 minutes (I wish I was joking), and then 10 mnutes after that is this "customer service" guy blaming me saying that I should have a cell phone and really it's my own fault for not having a cell phone. So I said you know what? I'm switching providers this is ridiculous. He blames me a bit more and I give him an out saying give me the month for free and we're fine; but he refuses.

Finally Saturday some guy comes (I had to use my parents as the confirmation number), this guy is really good and nice. He looks at the cable to see what's wrong. want to know what was wrong?

well when the Rogers people came to connect my neighbour's cable they decided to just cut our cable. Not even joking, it was just a clean cut straight across.

So in short, Rogers is the worst service provider ever and I am switching when my contract is up at the end of the month.
