Pinky Diablo – Artist who turns silverplate spoons into skulls. More examples here.

Funeral Cakes – These are…odd.

Eggs with Legs – A whole passel of teeny baby tarantulas.

Dork Tower – This one made me cackle.

Spiderweb Potholders – Easy tutorial for strip-piecing potholders that look like spiderwebs.

Against Happiness: In Praise of Melancholy – An alternative to the slew of “how to be happy all the time” self-help books on the market, this book argues that melancholia is a necessary ingredient for creativity. Might be a useful book to pull out next time somebody accuses you of being too emo.

Spud Vicious – It’s a punk potato plushie. Say that three times fast.

Agnoistrology – Horoscopes for people who don’t believe in horoscopes.

Sugar Skull Plush Kitties – Cute! Odd, but cute.

    As a writer, and the wife of a moody artist, I well know the value of melancholy. In the immortal words of Captain Kirk, “I need my pain!”

    Against Happiness is excellent. Melancholy can be leavening.
