A whole lot of misdirected energy.

(Nearly) Life-Sized TARDIS

It's been ages since I updated here but this project and a new Doctor (!) are great reasons to come back. 

So...the (nearly) life-sized TARDIS. 7' tall, including the light, 40" wide, 75+ balloons and a whole lot of trial and error.

D.I. Lestrade (Rupert Graves)

One more for the Sherlock collection. It's rather cuddly-looking, which is also kind of how I feel about Lestrade himself. 

A perfect example of why he might be my favorite character, in which he stands in the background and steals the whole damn scene: http://youtu.be/NvXm00InTcM

Anderson (Jonathan Aris)

Fourth in my apparently ongoing series of Sherlock balloons: Anderson. He's not, strictly speaking, on the drugs squad but he's very keen.

Mycroft Holmes (Mark Gatiss)

Mycroft would hate knowing there's an adorable balloon version of him, wouldn't he?

Dr. John H. Watson (Martin Freeman)

My Sherlock needed a Watson, of course. I'm a little bit in love with this one.

Sherlock Holmes (Benedict Cumberbatch)

Sherlock series 3 has already come and gone on the BBC and spoilers are everywhere. If you need me before January 19th, I'll be curled up in the corner twitching, hiding from the internet, and waiting for my fix.

Anderson, face the other way, you're putting me off.

My family saw Frozen tonight and I was completely unprepared for the emotional toll it would take on me. I cried through the first half hour and laughed loudly (and sometimes alone) through much of the rest. 

And, of course, we all loved Olaf. Josh Gad meets Jerry Lewis meets snowman: perfection.
