A Hard Raaaaiiiiiiin...

It has been all thundery and gloomy here for an hour or so and I can't wait for the sky to open up and just pour rain on us (and our tomato plants). I hope it isn't one of those all bark and no bite afternoons. Grey and thunder filled skies with no rain is just so unsatisfying.

I finished Shannon's striped monster redux and it will be going in the mail this afternoon.



Can you tell I am obsessed with PhotoShopping the backgrounds out of things?

I want to do a big post with some customer pictures that I have gotten over the last few months, but I don't have time right now. I am trying to prepare myself for the beginning of this month's madness tomorrow. I have some really cute ones, too. And if YOU have a picture of your wee beastie in some Crankypants, send 'em on! I am redoing the site sometime before the holidays and I'd love to use some customer pictures.

It seems like there were a bunch of things that I wanted to write about but I am so lame that they have all slipped right out of my head.

OH! Speaking of customer input... the theme for the Fall FEAST stocking is all things literary. I picked it, yay me! I have some ideas floating around, but I wanted to open it up to you guys, too. If anyone has any lunimary literary longies ideas, let me know. Harry Potter and Pippi Longstockings are in the works...

Did you ever get your rain? :)

We sure did. About a half hour later it poured. It was wonderful!

I can't wait to see the Harry Potter!!!

What about Nancy Drew (really just a girl with a magnifying glass, which is always cool) or the Wicked Witch of the West?

Oh, and Pippi sounds awesome.

Without a doubt, you need a Crankypants rendition of one of the Where the Wild Things Are monsters! (Or Max, himself: http://www.amazon.com/gp/reader/0060254920/ref=sib_dp_pt/002-7374897-6128855#reader-link )

And, ooh! OOH! I would probably cry (big, fat tears that puddled around my feet and made squishy sounds when I walked) if you did David Shannon's 'No, David'--with little tufts of hair on top and maybe little ears like you do for your sock monkeys: http://www.amazon.com/gp/reader/0590930028/ref=sib_dp_pt/002-7374897-6128855#reader-link http://www.amazon.com/gp/reader/0439050227/ref=sib_dp_pt/002-7374897-6128855#reader-link

OR, The Very Hungry Caterpillar in a cool variegated green on the bum w/ a fruit on the front leg cuff?

Lastly, how about a visit to 1955 with Harold and the Purple Crayon? Black longies, purple squiggles around the legs ending in Harold's Face on the booty: http://www.amazon.com/gp/reader/0060229357/ref=sib_dp_pt/002-7374897-6128855#reader-link

Man. I would die. I would just die. (Figuratively, of course)
