That's right everyone, the most treasured time of year has come again!  I can hardly contain my excitement or my record-button-pressing!

It's Shark Week!!!

And on behalf of the sheer awesomeness that is Shark Week I have made a roundup of some of the most awesome arts and crafts and handmade delights that the interwebs can provide!

Enjoy!

This little can cozy is from an utterly awesome knit shop on Etsy called HandaMade based out of San Clemente, California.  They don't just do sharks, but those are my faves by far.  They also make bottle and apple cozies.  and considering the obviously awesome craftsmanship the price tag for this guy is pretty reasonable at $18.00

source
This get-up is just too much!  I saw this and just about died, how freaking fun and funny!  Who doesn't want to walk around looking hot while also looking half-eaten?  I mean, c'mon! This comes from a shop called smarmyclothes and they have some seriously rad dresses and clothes.  Everything from this little number to Doctor Who, Alice in Wonderland, to Rockabilly inspired dresses.  This shark dress is marked at $155.00, which may sound a little steep but you would for sure stand out in a crowd.

How freaking cute is this Shark Bite Beanie?!  How better to prepare your little ones for an undying love of sharks and the week in honor of them than to pretend that they are a precious little baby seal?!  lol, Ok, maybe that was a little too much.  but c'mon, this is adorable!  For those of you who crochet you can find the pattern for a mere $4.99 on Ravelry from Boomer Beanies.

These are just too darn cute.  I mean like REALLY.  These are so cool and the amazing artisan over at Stacy71 on Etsy also makes them customizable!  ....I don't really know what that means, but yeah!  pricetag: $35.00  Not too shabby 

source
Holy-free-crochet-pattern, Shark man!!  These are so freakin cool and yeah, that's right, the pattern is FREE on Ravelry from Tamara Kelly!  These would be awesome as gifts, pen carriers, and heck even makeup brush storage!  I have got to make some, I know my kids will go apey for these! pricetag: FREE!!  awesomeness:  PRICELESS!!

Oh Good ol' Tracy Jordan!  hahaha, I remember absolutely laughing my buns off the first time I heard this.  I may have to save up to splurge on this bad boy.  I know the hubby would love it on the bed or couch too.  This is one decorative pillow I KNOW he wouldn't fight me on!  This comes from SatMorningPancakes on Etsy and the pricetag rings in at $40.00
(oh, don't worry... they also have a sharknado pillow.... you're welcome...)

source
With us getting ready to move I have been looking for some ideas for updating a little bit and this print would be perfect for the kids' bathroom! a fun and funny way to remind your little sharkies at home to keep their chompers fresh and clean!  This is from thedreamygiraffe on Etsy and rings it with a pricetag of $18.00
(they have some other really awesome prints, so go and check those out too!)

I. Must. Have. This. Purse.  What better way to represent your love for sharky goodness than to carry them around on your shoulder all day?!  Not only that, as if the outside material wasn't enough to sell you, the inside looks like blood spatter!!  SCORE!!  This hails from DisturbinglyAdorable on Etsy with a very reasonable pricetag of $34.99.

source
This Whale Shark iPhone cover makes for LITERALLY the only time I have ever (a.) wished I knew how to knit and (b.) wished I had an iPhone to knit it for.  This thing is just too gorgeous and too artfully made!  This comes from one of my FAVORITE blogs House of Humble.  Not only is thing thing amazeballs, but you can download the pattern for FREE!!  yeah yeah yeah!!  

source
Ok, So you may be thinking to yourself, "But Bethany, I am far too classy and chic for any of these previously listed items"  well, let me oblige you by saying first, settle right down.  I have just the shark week attire for your fancy schmancy needs.  This necklace consists of a Large Shark's Tooth has been dipped in 24k gold and hung on a gold chain....  whowhat?!  This is awesome, I know.  This comes from MagicLoot out of LA on Etsy and The pricetag rings in at $118.00.  Worth it? Yes.

source
Don't even try to lie to me and say that you don't think this Fanny pack is tubular to the core.  Don't do it! Don't lie to yourself!  This is from Etsy from a little shop called Chiradesigns it's listed for $23.00, which is pretty cheap for how awesome you are gonna look wandering around ___fill in the blank____ theme park like a regular bad-a$$ in your uber 80's accessories.  (don't forget to wear some awesome geometric earrings al a Lisa Turtle to complete the ensemble.)

source
This little doo-dad is perfect for the morbidly dapper.  with blood splatter material and a sharky-poo to complete the look you will be quite deep-sea-Dexter-y indeed.  This Bow Tie comes from cuteandcreepyinc on Etsy and sells for $4.75, now that's a slap-your-granny price! They have a number of other blood splatter bow ties with things other than sharks, but don't you even dream about them, this is shark week.

source
I can pretty much guarantee you don't have NEARLY enough Sharky fine art in your home... and that makes for certain that you don't have enough Ironic shark art either.  I have to admit, I would absolutely positively frame this and put it in my living room.  In fact, I am pitching it to my husband as we speak.  Does it get much better?!  A shark in a suit and tie?!  this is just about as "Booya!" as it gets.  This print measures at 8"X10" and comes from the hilariously brilliant minds of Ryan and Lucy Berkley at berkleyillustration and is really affordable at only $18.00!  they have a NUMBER of other animals that they "dress" all fancy and they are ALL worth a good look (the giggles come free).

I remember my less favorite grandmother (not very diplomatic, I know) had only a couple things going for her: her awesome farm and she had this awesome mug with a frog down at the bottom and it was so funny as a child to drink from that mug!  Etsy Shop, SpademanPottery has added a whole new dimension to my childhood memories with their PLETHORA of surprise mugs like this one above.  This particular one costs $29.00 which to me is pretty reasonable for the craftsmanship.  

source
I love these type of prints, and I am frankly a little miffed that I didn't think of this first!  this shop, CollageOrama, offers a HUGE assortment of designs and illustrations on these vintage Dictionary pages, including this lovely Lithograph style Hammer Head Shark print measuring about 8.5" X 11" and costing a mere $6.99 this would make for some awesome wall filler in your home or better yet, Man Cave!

I hope you all enjoyed The Sepia Puppy's Shark Week! Roundup!
Happy Shark Week!!

This is hilarious! I'm glad you're enthusiastic about sharks. I'm terrified by the idea of them! Probably because my mom had a crush on Richard Dreyfuss when Jaws came out, and she took me, A SEVEN YEAR OLD, to see Jaws on the big screen in the movie theater. YEAH! Almost 40 years later and I'm still scared for life ... :)
