CRISPR – human trials to begin

theAbysmal
I don’t know about you, but I’m properly terrified. the TED talk on CRISPR was welcomed with muted applause, I expect due to the power of this new technology, and what we have, historically, done with greatly powerful technologies (see: plutonium). It seems rather quick to jump to human trials, considering how little we know […]

I had... a dream where I was playing hide and seek with someone and rire was just kinda hiding under a bed like "guess who is the monster under the bed, guess who contorted his body for this joke " and it was weird

PFFFFTTT XDD I wanted to doodle something to this but it’s late and i couldn’t justify drawing what i had in my head without laughing. But if you can imagine some stereotypically sexy pose like

but more compact and then Rire having to use his tentacles to throw the bed off because he got stuck under there

I didn’t know I was lost.

picklebums

I keep hearing the lyrics of that Avicii song in my head… 

“So wake me up when it’s all over
When I’m wiser and I’m older
All this time I was finding myself
And I didn’t know I was lost”

I didn’t know I was lost until I found myself with a moment of silence that I didn’t know what to do with.

I joked about the fact that with all four kids in school for the first time this year, I was going to spend the entire year ‘patting puppies and drinking champagne’, but the truth is, now that I am six months into this gig… there’s an unexpected sadness about getting your life back.

The silence is beautiful, and lonely.
The time is exciting, but suffocating.
The possibilities are endless, and daunting. 

It was a bit of a surprise to find out that I’m not sure exactly who I am right now, or who I want to be.

I feel like I’ve been walking down a country road and suddenly come upon someone I hadn’t thought much about in years… me.

It seems so ridiculous and melodramatic and ‘bloody hell just go get a real job then you won’t have time to over think this crap’, and it is all of those things, but it is also how I’m feeling.

So you’ll have to bear with me while I babble on about ‘putting yourself on the list‘, and ‘self-care’, and while I figure out what I want to do ‘when I grow up’ because now that my kids are all growing up, I guess I will have to grow up too.

Have you lost yourself (in a good way) in the relentless days of parenting little children?

How did you find yourself?

I discovered your blog via BTD and I want to get more into your ocs. How should I go about learning about your ocs? I'm kinda confused but intrigued @_@

Darqx - tumblr

Awww thanks for the interest anon! X3c My characs are kinda…everywhere haha (cos i have this…tendency to throw them into many different AUs for fun |D). My main ones are the Hedone Highers:

who in normal verse are a bunch of highschoolers at an all male boarding school (the headmaster is Rire). I draw them a lot on my DA and there’s a few random bits of info interspersed in their tumblr tag. The main secondary (lol oxymoron) AU i’m developing with them is Battle Priest, which unlike the normal verse might actually get a webcomic idk we’ll see lol.

Another reoccurring character is Eid (kid with the mask).

His original form is that of a shadow monster but lately i’ve been using this human form more. He’s even more of an AU hopper since i keep throwing him into random stuff with friends so not much is really set with him XD The main things are that he’s mute, almost constantly starts off homeless, and he’s always romantically paired with @justonepurpose​ charac Mu (girl in the cat ear hoodie).

Of course is there’s anything specific you wanna know feel free to ask me! :)

Elephants Balancing – free printable puppets

picklebums

It’s been a while since I’ve made a new set of puppets.

My kids are all older now, but thankfully you are never too old for a little puppet fun!

Do you know the counting song that goes with these fun elephant puppets?

It’s one of my favourite preschool songs, and the version we know goes like this:

Elephants Balancing.

One little elephant balancing,
Step by step on a piece of string.
He thought it was such a wonderful stunt,
that he called for another elephant!

Two little elephants balancing,
Step by step on a piece of string.
They thought it was such a wonderful stunt,
that they called for another elephant!

Three little elephants balancing,
Step by step on a piece of string.
All of a sudden that piece of strong broke,
And down came all those elephant folk!

To make your own elephant puppets just print the elephants onto some paper or card, cut them out and attach them to a stick (we used wooden chopsticks!).

We made the elephants a strong to balance on using straws with a bit of play dough to hold them up. You can add some fun flags to your tightrope by cutting out the diamond shapes on the printable, folding them in half and hanging them over the string.

You can download the free printable balancing elephants here.

This printable is an A4 sized pdf file, you will need a pdf reader such as adobe acrobat to open it. If you are printing on US ‘letter sized’ paper be sure to select ‘fit’ or ‘shrink to fit’ from your printer options.

Please remember that the printables at picklebums.com are for personal use only, you may not sell, share, or link directly to these files.

 

You can find all of our free printable puppets here – we’ve got monkeys (and a crocodile!), currant buns, frogs, ducks, monsters and more!
