Tagged like a captured beast let back into the wild.

So I was tagged by one of my favorite crafty broads in a recent blog. The lovely and talented SpookyPooky, Alexz expressed an interest in the exciting and mysterious world of The Mad Gypsy. Okay well maybe not that mysterious or even that interesting lol. But if anyone is curious, here it is:

7 "Interesting" Facts 
About The Mad Gypsy

  1. I learned my skills in crafting and basically just "making stuff work" in my 3d studio class in high school, the two years I spent working in a small craft and scrap booking store and things I have picked up through trial and error. Which leads me to my next point,
  2. I never went to college. I had every intention of going to art college but that didn't end up happening so I guess I am doing this instead lol. This is why I do swaps. I treat those as assignments in my own little art uncollege. Isn't that lame? 
  3. I LOVE giraffes. Ever since I was little they reminded me of alien horses. 
  4. I have a cat named Jables and I love him dearly but he will never be as close of a friend to me as my old cat Max. Max was my best friend and my best editor. When he died I was inconsolable. I had to call out of work for 3 days because I just couldn't move without him. I intend to name my first son Max. 
  5. Jables is named after Jack Black. I have a thing for the confident class clown who will look ridiculous for a laugh and be proud of it. Jack Black is so amazing. I want his confidence and charisma. And him. I just want him. 
  6. I have a severe Alice In Wonderland complex. I have been obsessed with Alice In Wonderland and Through The Looking Glass ever since I was little and the books were read to me. I took Tim Burton's interpretation of Alice In Wonderland very personally. It bothered me that so many liberties had been taken and it was still marketed as the story of Alice In Wonderland. I would not have minded so much if he had titled it something like "Almost Alice" or "Alice At Last" to make it clear that this was some kind of adaptation or sequel. I felt betrayed to find that the story had been so butchered. I could rant for a very long time about this movie. I wanted to like it! I really did! I have been waiting for it for two years. But despite how pretty it was at some points, and how very typically Tim Burton it was, I just wasn't feeling it. And so now EVERYONE is obsessed with Alice In Wonderland and I feel like a jackass though I have been "down with the rabbit" (lol) for as long as I can remember. A trendy jackass. Ugh. 
  7. Animal Muppet is my spirit animal. 

Well there you have it. That oughta hold ya for a while.  I suppose now I should go about my tagging. 

not a lot but a few fun people who pique my interest :) 

well, like the fat kid in dodge ball with a limp, I'm out! 

Much  Love~


  1. awww that was so much fun to read. I skimmed through the end 'cause I haven't seen Alice yet and I want to experience it for myself, for better or worse!

    And FYI "alien horses" just BLEW MY MIND. !!
