This Is Not A Political Blog

But it is a crafty blog, so let me show you what I made.

obama finger puppet

Obama finger puppet, inspired by a free pattern from Lion Brand Yarn, modified for fine gauge crochet yarn.

Depending on how the day ends, I'm prepared to finish McCain.

mccain's not quite done

Truth be told, crocheting finger puppets and sewing the tiny pieces together became tedious.

But thanks to McCain's recent appearance on SNL, I found out that Starbucks is giving out free joe today.

Not Joe Biden, not Joe Six Pack, not Joe The Plumber, but a tall cup of hot joe. On the house. Go get a cup.

And just in case you're curious what an eight year old girl expects from the next president:

the president of the u.s. should...

Boy am I proud of my girl.

  1. Its a pretty good skeem to get you in there and spend money. Cuz you know you aren't going to stop at just some coffee. You need some woop cream on it and thats a couple bucks. So get out and vote to get your free joe people!

  2. "Woop cream" is what our kids call whipped cream. And I just signed Jerry up for his own identity. So now I will comment under his name ;)

    I saw those finger puppets and kept meaning to ask if you had seen them. Funny!

  4. Oh man. Those puppets are fantastic! Now you can hold your own political debates with them LOOOONG after the election is over and the winner declared. How awesome.

  5. Awesome! And I agree - presidents should definitely like children!

  6. Oh man. That kid KILLS me. If that were the standard operating procedure for presidential decisions, just imagine what a peaceful and generous country we could be - it's an ingenious concept, really.
    As are political finger puppets. They say and do what we please. Happy election day. Fingers crossed (w/o puppets).

  11. You know, that's one thing I can totally support in this election - a president who loves kids!

    I really like your new header too. Very nice.

    I sent you an email responding to the kind note you left on my blog. Did you get it? I wasn't sure as my little one disabled our wireless for a few days.

    Very nice of him don't you think?

  17. The place where I went to vote had similar written things from kids about what they would do if they were president. A little girl, Emma, happened to be there and read me hers. It was really sweet.

  20. I'm cracking up over Jerry having his own identity now...I saw those puppets on their newsletter! They turned out so cute! You'll have to turn them into Christmas ornaments so you can remember them every year and what took place this week. Very cute!

  21. I'm proud of that girl too... did you hear (on NPR)the list of kindergarten requests? they carried the same theme, but widened the circle a little with suggestions like "should be nice to other presidents" and others!
    I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your site! Reading it has been such a great treat to give myself this morning!
