Wizard of Oz Diorama of Awesomeness

I have a wonderful husband. Just putting that out there. For my birthday he gave me two super rad Wizard of Oz vinyls to celebrate my obsession of L. Frank Baum amazingness. But how to display my new friends? It was clear from the start that not just any shelf would do, so I took a box we had lying around, did a quick craft run for some extra felt and glitter glue, and a few hours later I had this, the perfect display setting for Dorothy and the Wicked Witch of the West to duke it out in the shadow of the Emerald City.

Wizard of Oz Craft

The road to Oz is paved with good intentions and lots of felt.

I had a lot of fun working on this project, but I have to say finding the little red pom poms to use as the poppies actually made me shriek with delight at the craft store. It’s the little things. And when we add to this new collection I’ll get to create even more Wizard of Oz dioramas since I don’t think I could fit more than one additional vinyl in this particular display. I’m also hoping that maybe one day they will venture beyond the first book because I need a Tik Tok, Jack Pumpkinhead and Ozma like yesterday.

Adorable Cats Re-Enact All the Harry Potters Films in 1 Minute

Crazy Harry Potter fans and Crazy Cat Ladies Unite! This is our great moment. Ok, I may be prone to exaggeration, but this is pretty darn cute, and follows the ingenious formula of Kittens + Harry Potter = Internet Gold. So if you are thinking of seeing Harry Potter and the Dealthy Hallows Pt. 2 this weekend (AKA Harry Potter and the end of a Mulit-Billion $ movie franchise), these kittens will help refresh yr memory from the first 7 movies. PS – they are a smidge liberal with the plot points (what do you expect for 18 hours of film reduced to 1 minute?) and use some NSFW language, but the cute is RIDIC. Enjoy!

My Personal Kitten Hero

So I was hanging around on Failblog, whose taste I tend to agree with until I saw this fantastical and amazing photograph that was clearly mislabeled as a FAIL when it is obviously a WIN of Biblical proportions.

That kid on the right has transcended amazingness and how has a permanent membership card to my heart space.  I almost pulled a Double Raindow-esque moment of Oprah caliber joy the moment my eyes beheld perhaps the most perfect artistic representation ever of One Man Kitten Army.*swoon*
