dorightwoman said: i am interested in your okra project. i am also wondering if you can convince me to like okra. i want to recuperate okra and love it as a uniquely southern food but man. it is gross. so slimy.

ok honestly i like okra in all forms it’s one of my favorite…

Whoa I missed this but I wanted to add that my favorite way to do okra, which is conveniently also the easiest way ever to do okra, is to cut the stems down a lil bit and then roll the okras in olive oil and salt and pepper and then put them on the grill til they’re blackened on the outsides. So crispy and flavorful and non-slimy! I ate this multiple times a week all last summer.

(Also you can do fried okra batter real easy with cornmeal and an egg and salt and pepper. Add a little red pepper too if you like spicy. Cut the okras in slices and batter them and fry em in a pan with vegetable oil on high heat.)

Last night/this morning I spent 18 consecutive hours working on this project, oh my god. My body is so sore for sitting in a chair for that long. It came out pretty good though, I think? It was most fun making all the textures and plant symbols for the second picture. I think maybe I am getting better at photoshop/sketchup, I am pretty pleased.

BABY ANIMALS PSA

Hey y’all, this is the time of year when baby critters begin to appear. You may encounter one and be unsure of what to do! There are a lot of really common misconceptions about baby animals that can actually be dangerous/fatal for them and I see this stuff happening year after year so I feel like this needs to be said: 

  • If you find a baby animal, don’t assume it needs to be saved! As a general rule, do not touch or move an animal unless it is visibly injured (and even then, contact a professional first).
  • It’s a myth that birds will abandon their young if they can smell your scent on them. It’s okay to return a baby bird to its nest if it’s fallen out. HOWEVER, some mammals such as deer and rabbits may abandon their young if they notice foreign smells, so don’t touch them unless you’re absolutely certain they need help.
  • People often confuse fledgling birds with baby birds who have fallen from their nests. A fledgling bird will have feathers on its body and a short tail. They’re often seen hopping around on the ground; this is because they’re learning to fly. It’s best to just leave them alone.
  • Baby animals may appear to have been abandoned by their parents, but this is often because the parent has left temporarily to find food. If you suspect an animal has been abandoned, observe it for several hours to see if the parent returns before attempting to intervene.
  • In a lot of places, it’s illegal to keep wild animals as pets. Please don’t do this! Attempting to raise a wild animal yourself will very likely be harmful to the animal and will prevent it from being able to survive in the wild on its own.
  • If you find an animal that is visibly injured, or you have reason to believe it has been abandoned by its parent, contact a licensed wildlife rehabilitator BEFORE attempting to do anything yourself.
  • Consider keeping your cat indoors. Cats kill billions of animals every year, and are one of the biggest factors in the decline of many native species, especially birds. Living indoors is healthier for your cat, too.

Seriously, the very best thing you can do for a baby animal you think needs help is to call a wildlife rehabilitator. Even if you are unsure of the animal’s status, a rehabilitator will usually be happy to answer your questions! For more information regarding specific animals, check with the humane society.

so i looked at this when you posted it and then msgd that person because i wanted a necklace and then slacked on responding to her but i just now today was able to meet up with her and give her cash dollars and even arranged a sketchy meeting in a parking lot about it, all before mentioning i knew you, oooops!! before that i was a total internet creeper plus my t-shirt etsy account (which isn’t even open yet) doesn’t have my name on it! ahhh. anyway i luv my necklace, a+

So yesterday my coworker was complaining about this tradition she’s expected to fulfill. As the lower-year date of her boyfriend to his fraternity’s formal, she’s supposed to make a special ornamental cooler painted with art related to her boyfriend, fill it with bottles of liquor, seal it, and…

omg I totally helped my sister make one of these recently, remind me to post pics later

it’s also a thing for certain frats to receive boxers decorated by their dates which seems a lot more reasonable tbh
