UFO visits Toy Planet

ufo-treeson

I wanted to show how cool these mini 3″ UFO Flying Saucers are as awesome display items. It’s fun to place the UFO lamp next to sci-fi toys, mini robots, plastic figures, and vinyl kaiju toys. The light show seems to breathe life into the little monsters. Thanks to everyone that has already ordered. I’m gonna make another batch if you want one. Check availability at my shop: etsy.com/shop/JEMTOY

UFO Flying Saucer

IMG_2473

I have a thing for kitschy B movies. The classic flying saucer is one of my favorite blasts from the past. For a long time I have wanted to turn gum ball machine pods into a UFO, and I’ve finally done it. The acrylic sends out bands of colored stripes as the top emits a nebula of changing color. This small 3 inch lamp can easily turn your room into a galaxy of amazing light patterns and colors. Although I try, the video cannot do it justice. You must see it in person for full effect.  Surprise your friends, create the perfect mood, kick back and chill. Check it out! Information and ordering links below.

Silk Screened Wiggly Loaf Plush

Plush Wiggly Loaf Toys

I collect vintage fabrics and look for it at yard sales, Goodwill, Salvation Army, thrift stores, and barn sales. I have decided to upcycle the smaller pieces by silk screening Wiggly Loaf and making soft plush pillow toys. Each one unique and one of a kind. I have a few up on my bigcartel site, click below to check ’em out. Woo Hoo!!!

Pitik of Glory

Pitik of Glory Game

I’ve been in the mood to create some new games and here is the first completed paper game, The Pitik of Glory. Players take turns trying to finger flick a penny, bottle cap, or glass blob into the hole in the goal post. Who ever can get it in from the furthest away wins. Players start at 20 inches away and if you miss you try again at 19, 18, 17 until you get in the goal. Your score is the number you got a goal from. Easy to play, hard to master.

Print the three pages of the game here: Pitik 1 ~ Pitik 2 ~ Pitik 3.

I have made a video tutorial for those of you who hate to read instructions as much as I hate writing them.

For more paper toys and games check out my book: Print! Cut! Fold! Glue! by J.E.Moores available at Amazon.
