This past September at Baltimore Comic Con, I discovered artist Mike Maihack and purchases several of his Batgirl and Supergirl comic prints. One of my favorites is this Christmas comic from last year in which Kara buys Barbara a Christmas gift that she is less than willing to wear.

You can view both below Tell Me More!

During the holiday season it seems like Mariah Carey's "All I Want for Christmas Is You" is played on a continuous loop on radio stations across the country. Not that I'm complaining. I absolutely love the holiday tune! But even I was excited to hear Carey put a new spin on it backstage before a taping of Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.
The singer, along with Fallon and show band The Roots, performed the song using classroom instruments like a kazoo, xylophone, and ukulele. Carey even got some Tell Me More!
Doctor Who fan Cynthia from The Creative Corner may be my new Christmas DIY hero! Inspired by an idea she saw on Craftster, she created this amazing Weeping Angel Christmas tree topper.
She constructed the tree topper using only a Barbie doll, modeling clay, a plastic bottle, and some spray paint. Thankfully, Cynthia posted a detailed tutorial on her blog. Now, we can all make our own Weeping Angel tree toppers this year!

If you read the recipe I posted on Tuesday, then you already know that my hubby and I have agreed not to spend any money on Valentine's Day this year.
