This year, we decided that we'd participate in our church's Trunk or Treat event for Halloween. Our theme? Alice in Wonderland. I originally thought we'd go with the Tea Party theme, but nixed that idea when I found some awesome looking flowers over at Hobby Lobby. The Red Queen's garden, it was! We had three… Continue reading Through the Rabbit Hole
Unlike the laborious, tear-inducing Destiny cross-stitch, this latest video game cross-stitch was a breeze! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ah4hNapQghM (Don't have time for words? Just watch the progression video.) A little background...there is a Kickstarter going on for a game called Mighty No. 9. The character that I cross-stitched is named Beck and he is rather adorable, no? I… Continue reading There and Beck again…
However, this latest project I finished was like the troubled child that you love, but all they want to do is spite you and make you cry. (Don't want to read a bunch of complaining? Go ahead and watch the vid of the cross-stitch's progress.) Oh Guardians, why do you hate me? The original plan… Continue reading I love cross-stitching.
Recently, Bungie, er, The Black Garden (a group over at bungie.net) ran a contest: write a >300 word story about this image from Destiny. I didn't win the contest, but I did find it fun to try to write for a world we know practically nothing about. I wrote two ficlets. I ultimately chose the second… Continue reading Writing contests, word limits, and Bungie — oh my!
So, after months of trying to figure out what I was going to make my little sister for her wedding, I finally figured it out. A giant pillow that looked like a NES controller. I had attempted to make one years ago, but let's just say it didn't work out and leave it at that.… Continue reading Game time!
Oh yes, the Crafting Geek is back...
So, like a character in a book an author writes, my crafting projects tend to name themselves. Sometimes it takes a while for them to introduce themselves to me, but, after spending time with them, they all give me *something* to call them. I'd like to introduce you to The Cross Stitch of Doom (or… Continue reading The Cross Stitch of Doom (Week 1)
This month has brought many projects to an end. (Thankfully.) In no particular order... Punch needle to my stepmom. The Jen Taylor project (Yes, I actually sent them to her.) Melted Snowman Ornament Blue Quilted Ornament And, because today's Babe's birthday, I had to make him a Halo cake.… Continue reading Caaaaaake! (And everything else I’ve been doing…)
Again, this took too long, my friends. I blame the distraction of Halo 4. 😛 Onward to part three!
So, I did it again. (Can you blame me?) First, let's start with the Halo. I know, I had Master Cheep and Cor-tern-a the last time, but since then I had to add a few characters to the mix. Why hello there... Let me introduce you to my friends. Master Cheep Cor-tern-a 343 Guilty Stork… Continue reading I’m in your fandom, stealing your characters
