I don't think I have any fetishes.
I mean, nothing comes to mind when I think of fetishes. So, I guess that must mean something.
Anyways, I'm "housesitting" for my sister right now.
She's afraid of robbers. So, I gotta stay here while she and her fiance are at work until the alarm system is installed.
All I've done today is watch television and take care of three pomeranians.
I DID discover how addicting the DIY Network is… I watched it all day long and got mad that I had no sewing machine and/or knitting needles and yarn. Ugh. Just my laptop that gets HORRIBLE wifi reception. =/
The other down side is that Buddha, the older male pomeranian, keeps trying to prove how male he is to the female and the male puppy. ANNND… he keeps jacking himself off with his paws. That makes me really uncomfortable, especially when he looks at me and does it.
Here's a photo I took today:
Hi, my name is Craig Hunter, and I live alone in a neat two bedroom apartment in Houston, Texas. I'm in my fifth year at the University of Saint Thomas, majoring in English, minoring in women's studies. (However, I should have majored in philosophy.)
I was just trying to explain to someone in an e-mail about how and when I started crafting, and I told him I pretty much started in highschool. I know I started before then, but from now on, the story is I started in highschool, pretty much altering my clothing and doing other things like that, including music. There's this fat (not tiny) voice in my head that's always pitching ideas at me: "Hey, it'd be cool if you did that like this!" or "What if you put this here?" or "Dude, let's drink some beer." As a result, I'm constantly going, my mind's always racing and thinking of new ideas for anything. In my eyes, anything can be turned into something special.
So, my shop name is Cubist Literature, which is also the name of everything else I do, including my musical solo-project (yes, I hate that term). My shop is on the wonderful Etsy.com, and I'm best known for making t-shirts, I suppose. T-shirts are what I first started selling on Etsy, and I still regularly list those as well. I also sell skirts, supplies, my music, cuffs, and various other things. I'm constantly trying out new ideas, as I'm still trying to familiarize myself with the sewing machine (once I sewed my finger and the needle when through the fingernail and the needle broke and I had to pull it out!) and with screenprinting (it's a messy ordeal). Sometimes when I'm trying out ideas, I make something that I just fall in love with! So, I have a few favorite items: my CheGuevara/snowman True Love shirt, my Portland Is… shirt, and the cummerbund belt. Those are just a few examples of letting my mind wander and focus to the point where I get something I didn't expect. It's really cool!
Being a guy who sews and crafts is harder than a lot of people think. (There are a lot of guys who screenprint, so that's a medium I often feel alienated from, it seems. I just get a feeling.) I've had to teach myself pretty much everything I do. My mother didn't teach me how to use my sewing machine, so I had to use the hell out of Google and do so much trial and error. Usually when people find out I'm a guy who sews and knits (and etc.), I usually feel like a novelty or an outsider—sorta like a girl on a football or wrestling team. I think I'm just doing my part in promoting the DIY spirit and in becoming self-reliant (reasonably so, of course). It seems most people have a problem with self-analysis, looking within, learning their limits, etc., but I don't want to be like that.
