So let's sum up the past few months, shall we? Crafting. Lots of it. I'm going to go through and post everything once the craziness of the holidays calms down (hopefully). But, for now, I want to drop off a few patterns that I know a few of you have asked for. First of all… Continue reading The Holidays Have Consumed You
Another day, another thing to distract me from my self-imposed deadline for finishing the Dark World geeky pattern to give to the internet. This time I'm going back to my gaming roots -- the good ol', blow the game cartridge when it won't work, Mario-lovin', Duck Huntin' NES. Although I think that the N64 is my favorite… Continue reading Nintendo Entertainment (Cross)-Stitch
I'm sorry, No Doubt, but every time I think of your music, I think of ugly, well-armed aliens. It's really my 18 year old self's fault. Back in '98, when we were dating, Babe let me play his copy of Quake II (with the two expansion packs). I played the game for a while, destroying… Continue reading Play it by Ear
So, you want to make your own Destiny-themed Christmas card? Of course you do. The tutorial to make a card (i.e. listen to me talk for three minutes about the evilness of glue guns, how to convert the card into an ornament, and suggestions for your own Destiny themed messages) is in this vid. The… Continue reading Have yourself a geeky little Christmas
So, on Monday, I had the privilege of being one of Bungie’s guest for the Song E3 press conference. (Kudos to DeeJ for answering ALL THE QUESTIONS that I threw his way. Patience, the dude has it.)Babe and I arrived at the pre-show event where there were a ton of food trucks waiting for us. (This… Continue reading It was my Destiny…

Well, for Lego: LOTR anyway... I know some people had a problem with the voices coming from our little Lego friends, but it's LORD OF THE RINGS. And they had ALL THE ORIGINAL ACTORS WITH THEIR LINES. Enjoy it, because we know we're not getting that with Lego: Marvel Heroes. Now I'm tempted to go… Continue reading ALL THE CHEEVOS!!
Whee! For Throwback Thursday (yeah, it's still Thursday here), I give you Zork. If you are asking what's a Zork, I'm willing to bet that you were born after the NES came out. Xork was created in a day before computers could distract you with pictures of cats or kids doing stupid things and posting… Continue reading You are standing in an open field west of a white house, with a boarded front door. There is a small mailbox here.
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)
Get it? Building up excitement? And it's about Legos? Ha ha...ha? The new trailer popped up last week and I'll admit, I am still doing a happy dance of joy. I've always been a fan of the Lego games. Lego: LOTR was a blast to play. (100% completion, baby! Only 2 more achievements to go… Continue reading Lego: Marvel Super Heroes: Building Up Excitement
