I do a lot of searches on Etsy and the internet for craft stuff. It's part of my job, but it's also one of my favorite time-killers. Like the twisted roads Wikipedia can take you down, one Etsy search for "vintage japanese beads" can lead to something unexpected, such as the innocent hunt for "jeff goldblum crafts." I was shocked, shocked, to find nothing! How could this be? I thought there would be at least one thing. Nope. In a world where this exists, why should I be left unsatisfied?
There is a possible conspiracy. A few months ago I found the most beautiful painting of Jeff Goldblum being eaten by a whale. In the 30 seconds between showing it to Peter and going back to buy it, the painting sold. Seriously.
I dropped a lot of hints to the crafty community at large, but with limited results, I've taken matters into my own hands. Ladies and gentlemen, I now present to you my first Jeff Goldblum craft. It was inspired by this nice tutorial I found on Pinterest from the blog Virginia & Charlie.
|so pretty, right?|

I didn't quite get the insane quality in his eyes, but puffy paint is a challenging medium. Next time! I think actual embroidery or plush are next on the list; what do you think? Oh, and here's a fun video of the man himself on Tim and Eric. (Side note: This is one of my main depression symptoms. And I don't even take Wait-Mate!)
