Peace Be Upon Sunny Ali Toy Piano

I was recently in Greenpoint, Brooklyn shooting a video for the Polish Saturday school I used to go to when I discovered a dollar store that happened to be having a clearance sale. I discovered this electronic toy piano and got an amazing deal on it.

Upon purchasing it, I immediately thought of my favorite Philadelphia musician, Mr. Sunny Ali of Sunny Ali & the Kid (

The functions on this piano turned out to be quite advanced for a dollar store find, so I decided it needed to be custom bedazzled immediately:

Only the owner of this piano needs to know what these magical jeweled buttons do:

Arabic greeting meaning "Peace Be Upon You":

Dickfish Watergun

Was browsing the dollar section of the local Target when I came upon a fish-shaped water gun. Naturally, it needed to turn into a bedazzled fish-shaped water gun that vaguely resembled male genitalia inflicted with pimples and sores:

Disco Poodle

My boyfriend was in a thrift store one day where he found a broken (and glued back together) poodle wall ornament that was reminiscent of the cherub wall ornaments I previously bedazzled (

Being the swell guy that he is, he purchased this rare gem for me and this is how it ended up:

The pink disco ball came from a pair of disco ball sunglasses that unfortunately/fortunately broke:

Disco Poodle currently hangs in my bedroom until I find a good home for him.

I used the last of my Letraset letter transfers on this table:

After some heavy research (looking at their website:, I discovered Letraset was not going out of business after all, but simply cut back on their letter transfer inventory.  Seeing as how people have photoshop and scanners and whatnot these days, that seems like a sound business plan but doing things by hand trumps technology any day, for me (

MerryXmas Intestine Babies

For Christmas, I went to visit my family in Guelph, Ontario again. Thanks to a spectacular Christmas gift (100 Canadian dollars) I made a killing at the Value Village thrift store, my favorite place in the whole world.

Among the treasures that I picked up was this set of wall ornaments - angel babies wrapped in some kind of wreath.

After a quick paint job, the wreaths became bloody intestines and the babies became much cuter:

Remembered to take a "before" picture this time:

Happy New Year ya'll! <3
