I don’t know what it is, but I have been in a foul mood all week. Perhaps it’s the inevitable ‘coming down’ after having a really, really good week or it could be the earthquake-with-a-shot-of-hurricane natural disaster cocktail Mother Nature is serving up to my little corner of the world, but I am not a happy camper.
I have accomplished nothing this week (unless reading the Regretsy archives, scowling, and dropping a lot of f-bombs can be considered worthwhile accomplishments). And being unproductive makes me very unpleasant to be around.
So, why am I telling you all of this? Well, because Cranky Ruth is extremely hard to please. And yet, Cranky Ruth found the following Illustration Friday submissions worthy of her crabby/grouchy/I-want-to-punch-everybody-in-the-face approval. And that’s a feather in your cap!
So, here it is, this week’s Friday Favorites : Crankypants Edition.
