LJ Idol Free Topic Week: "Unwrapping"
cap, captain miss america

I started the first part of this post and then realized that there was really no way to adapt it for those of you who are visually impaired, so I apologize most sincerely for that and I did come up with a second half to the post that I hope makes up for the oversight.

Part 1 is A New Year’s Gift for you all: Tea Paper Dolls!

Instructions: print out with a color printer on oak tag. Cut out with a pair of scissors. Make sure to cut a small cut betwen my shoulders and my hair.Then dress me!
All of the clothes included are clothes I actually own!

Part 2 is a photographic story about unwrapping Christmas presents.

My father got very artistic with the presents this year. This first one was for my mother:

"Sun Melts Away The Pounds"

Description: There is a sunshine and a snowman. The snowman is saying “Sun Melts Away the Pounds!” Let me just say that my father’s artistic abilities? Would be the envy of many nursery schoolers.

There were several others with snowmen on them, but the piece de resistance was a drawing on one of my packages:

Why Did Chicken Get Present?

Give Up??

Description:

In picture #1, there is a picture of what my father claims is a chicken, in spite of the fact that is has four legs and no wings, in front of a box marked “Chick.” The caption says: “Why did Chicken get Present??”

Picture #2 just says “Give up???” And has a bunc h of arrows indicating that we should turn the box over. It is like Laffy Taffy, but with a box! AWESOME.

Ain't no dumb Cluck!

And Picture #3 is the answer to our riddle! It says, “Answer– If they don’t celebrate Chickenmas, may as well celebrate Christmas… Hey– This ain’t no dumb cluck!

Paper dolls! :D This is genius! You rock!

Mwah! I need more clothes though!

I'm finding myself bizarrely envious that you have a paper doll of yourself!! And so do we!

Perfectly brilliant. (Except there's a typo in your URL - it says .jpb)

Oh crap! I will fix it! And you can draw on of you too!

Alas, I can not draw myself as a paper doll! I can not draw. Husby can, but I would be a silly round plushtoy-looking thing and not awesome in paper clothes ;)

Still. Genius. <3

I BET YOU CAN DRAW BETTER THAN MY FATHER CAN.

We will have to work on this. I wonder if I can make a template.

LOL! Maybe better than the chicken can ;)

Aww! Maybe someday we will get you a paperdoll of you!

Haha! I am happy to play with the one of you - she has cute clothes! :D

Whee children everywhere will get to dress me up!

I am wearing the Daddy shirt right now!

Did you get your talent from your mother then?:)

This was SUCH a cute post!:)

My mom is a better artist than my dad but she was never as into it as I am. Honestly without sounding too conceited (I hope), I think most of my ability comes from studying other artists so much.

And now we know where you get your talent from...

I GET IT ALL FROM THE CHICKEN.

We had chicken for dinner tonight. My dad asked me if I had any ethical qualms about eating my savior. I asked him if he felt the same way about Jesus.

I loved the second one, absolutely *FUNNY*!

Thanks!

I am sorry the first one is not more accessible. It didn't occur to me until I tried to figure out how to write a description of it!


actually I could see it with the bright colours it stood out well for me with my limited vision, but the totally blind won't be able to make it out as I can.

Oh, good! Not that other people couldn't see it but that you could. I would have just done something totally different if it were a usual week but I figured since it was free topic, I might as well just put it up anyway!

OMG WHERE'D YOU GET A PIRATE'S LIFE FOR ME T-SHIRT?

I want to come to new york and raid your closet. (but I am no doubt bigger than you so it wouldn't fit! woe!)

I like your dad's comics, too. :)

and I used to play with paper dolls. my aunts and mom were really excited about them but I didn't get it, cause I had 3-D barbie. which I didn't play with much...

but you, my dear, area genius. thanks for the g-rated UNICORN CARD! I smiled for hours!!!!!

Sadly, I think the t-shirt got bought in a bargain bin from TJ Maxx or Marshall's or somewhere like that.

My closet is pretty awesome. Especially when you consider how much of it came from my grandma!

And you are welcome for the card! They all ended up being G-rated, hah!

This does seriously rock.

Wow, your dad has atrocious handwriting -- I had to read your captions in order to figure out what he wrote! LOL.

Ahaha I know! It's kind of crazy! I don't know how that happened.

THIS IS AMAZING!!!

I never had paper dolls. Huh.

Oh no! Deprived you were! And thank you!

Your dad sounds like a real card!

He is! He is the eight of spades!

I love your paper doll so much, and not just because she has no pants.

Also, your father = genius.

Awwww thank you! It was completely unintentional I say!

And he is. We played Apples to Apples today and I wanted to write in "My Daddy" for every answer.

This also amused me because I drew many, many paper dolls for myself growing up.

For me, the trick for getting the sizing right is cut out the doll first then draw around her to make sure the clothes will fit.

This was great:)

I made paper paper dolls as a kid, too! And that is how I did it! I found a bunch of them when my parents moved into their house! It was awesome, all the paperdolls my 12 year old self made.

I do it the same way on the computer. I draw myself on one layer, make another layer, draw the next piece of clothing, and then move it.

Ha...wow. Fun. I think I'd like your dad. :)

IT's really AWESOME!!!!!
