It is!!! It was part of the SWAG we got at BlogHer last month. I had planned to give it to my godson . . . until my D Art Day inspiration hit. Poor Zach lost out. :)

Thanks Gerri. I happened to have plenty of used test strips hiding around my house. :) Lots of (fresh new) lancets too!!

Why is there a lanclet right near the boobage area? I hope you don't stick your self there! Ouch!

Very cute! What are those orange blobbie things supposed to be?

Nope, no sticking my boobage area. (Ouch!!) I just randomly stuck supplies all over the voodoo doll. Artistic license, I guess?

And the "blobbie" things are actually made with red - in my mind they are smears of blood, but I'm happy if people interpret this however they see fit. :)
