Shroom, shroom!

We are happy to announce that despite the best efforts of Moo the Intern, who may soon be hired on full time to the position of Productivity Inhibitor, we have 4 new mushroom topiaries in the Etsy shop. There are also 3 more on the way! These include a new square base style, more cat […]

Makin’ it official

Posted by on Feb 20, 2012

There are legs everywhere at LwT HQ lately. Legs on the work desk, legs in bags, in boxes and in any tiger-proof container we can dig up. Some legs even went walking off on their own, thanks in part to Moo the intern. What’s all the hubbub? It’s restocking season, that’s why! The long, cold […]

Swim against youself?

Posted by on Jan 20, 2012

I wasn’t sure how to start this post today. Originally, I was going to start off by talking about how wonderful this holiday season was for Life with Tigers. Craft fair sales have been excellent, new ideas are brewing and new opportunities to expand our little furry empire are on the horizon. In general, it’s […]

Post holiday wrap up

Posted by on Dec 29, 2011

No more packing, no more flying, driving or repacking. The holiday season is over, and Life with Tigers has come though with only minor scratches. Here’s a quick recap of the last two weeks: It all started at the Bust Magazine Holiday Craftacular here in NYC. LwT shared a booth once again with our friend […]

NYCC official data dump

Posted by on Oct 17, 2011

It happened, and it was awesome! The 2011 New York Comic Con has packed up and left the Javits Center, but the memories (and in some cases aromas) linger on. Face paint? Check! Swords and guns? Check! Body parts, organs, monsters and zombies? You bet! And just how did it go? How did the Indie […]

I AM…the speaker of the house

Posted by on Oct 14, 2011

And there it is….my speaker’s badge for NYC Comic Con. Today is the big day, and here I am with a severe case of jet lag from my trip to London for Renegade, plus a cold I picked up somewhere over the Atlantic. But I will be there with a bag of severed legs, ready […]

From the land of mega coolness, here are the promotional postcards for the Comic Con “Indie Toymaker Roundtable: Turning Characters into Toys” panel on October 14th, courtesy of Wendy at I Heart Guts. Even more fun is this blog update Wendy put up last week. Look, I’m a robot! Woo hoo! Now, back to leg […]

Stop it, you are making me plush

Posted by on Sep 20, 2011

I was concerned that I was turning the corner into serious geekdom last year when I opted out of my AT&T iPhone contract to get my hands on the Droid R2-D2 phone (this IS the droid I’m looking for). Even more so when I realized I know what a Browncoat is (gratuitous Firefly reference). But […]

Robots and Fire and Circuits = Fun

Posted by on Sep 19, 2011

I took a short break from sewing mushrooms and legs this weekend to slip in a visit to the Maker Faire at the New York Hall of Science in Queens. Part Burning Man, part science fair, part DIY mega paradise, this is THE event to go to when you need your fill of robotic technology, […]
