Several months after we started this blog, I stuck a Sharpie and some paper in front of Mr. Snarky and asked him to draw something that we could use as our logo. And it was good. Actually it was drawn on the back of an envelope - it was supposed to be a test-run but we fell in luuurv with one of his first sketches and despite the fact that its diminutive size has caused a plethora of issues as we've tried to enlarge it and throw it on t-shirts. mugs, and other random merch, I love our little doodle-y banner. So it makes me REALLY happy to announce that we finally got ourselves a Latchkey Wife doodle to add to the top of our page! WOOOOO!!! We're slow (natch) but hopefully worth waiting for... Like all the good things in life. And it only took hours and hours of badgering and several threats of withholding sex to get... THIS -
I think Mr. Snarky really captured LKW's essence here... Note the devil horns hand gesture??? Yeah he met her while she was in Joisey when we all went to see Eclipse and he wasn't fooled for a second by her demure facade! Wolf in sheep's clothing, that one - and Mr. Snarky is on to you!
Uhhhh and speaking of our being the worst procrastinator on the planet, we'd also like to announce the winner of our contest to design the new banner for our Twitarded Goes to Foooorks! blog.
We got some GREAT designs from you guys and it was hard to choose just one, but the winner is...
Ok you have to click to enlarge and REALLY appreciate the awesome details, but we LOVE this one! What can we say - we are but a simple folk and love that it looks like a fucked-up version of our current Twitarded banner (which Cat also updated to include LKW - WOOT! Thanks, Cat!). You can visit Cat at The Daily Twimes for the latest Twilght-y news or check out her handmade jewelery at Little Faery Wingz and Things . Thanks, Cat!!!
Honorable mentions to our other entrants - I wish we could use them all! Click to enlarge all of these beauties--
From SuzsPetals (of ApplesNFeathers fame), we have all aboard the short bus to Forks! And she made us a cool button that I am going to use to link to the Forks blog (because we are SO lame that as I am writing this, we don't even link to our own blog - lol! how lame [squared] are we?! seriously... we need help...) -
From Riley (check out her fanfic!), we have a Crotchward collage that I could stare at all day and might make my screensaver sometime in the near future -
And then we had a couple of designs from the very talented CyCyN - I love her take on "the gals"! And her artsy take on Forks. I'd make a poster out of this in a stuttery heartbeat and might need this for a bumper-sticker on the rental car we'll be rolling in to Forks with -
CyCyN gave us this one as well (this might be what the sign looks like as we depart the fair town of Forks)-
Thanks to everyone who entered!!! I can't wait to meet all of you in person - I'll be the one in the corner, hyperventilating into a brown paper bag. You won't be able to miss me!
