It's getting close to May which means it's time for another #30for30crafting event! Yay! Pick a craft or project(s) (new or old) and be committed to working on it/them for 30 minutes for 30 days. I like to do it in May so you can give yourself a day off during the month, if you… Continue reading It’s #30for30crafting Time!
I love Tangled. Really. I LOVE Tangled. It is my most favorite Disney movie. The singing. The cuteness. The fact that Rapunzel is my Disney Princess twin (in the things she does -- not so much with the hair, LOL) So when they announced that they were going to do a series, I was very, very happy.… Continue reading All Tangled Up
Sit back, my friends, and let me tell you a story about a man. I mean, he was a...dragon man. Maybe he was just a dragon. But he was still TROGDOR. Now I understand that some sad souls may not be familiar with Trogdor or Strong Bad emails. My heart breaks for you, but let's… Continue reading Burninating the blog post
I fell in love with this design last year when Bungie first introduced the SRL. The colors are fantastic and the geometry of the design just stuck out, but for whatever reason, (I'm assuming I got distracted with another project) I didn't even start to make the pattern. This year, I decided, would be different.… Continue reading Off to the Races
'Twas the night before Christmas, And all through Peach's house, Not a creature was stirring, Not even a Mouse(r) Er, ok, I'll leave the poetry to someone else. So, if you've been on Twitter, you've seen me working on this Bowser, er, King Koopa, cross-stitch. I was looking at my new cup when the idea… Continue reading Jolly Ol’ St. Koopa
If you have been following me over on Instagram and Twitter then you know my crafting life has been dedicated to finishing a zillion tags that I'm sending out which can double up as ornaments. I've had a lot of questions and comments about them, so I thought, "Hey, you know, it's probably time for a… Continue reading Tag Along
So, last week, probably on Facebook, I saw a link to this fantastic idea of cross-stitching a pumpkin. They had a bat template for the masses to use, but you know I wasn't going to do anything so...ungeeky, right? Let's just say that I am super glad that I made my Halloween project back in… Continue reading Stitch or Treat
I swear, everything I make is not Bungie related. That being said, they came out with their trailer for their Festival of the Lost, and boom, next thing I knew I was spending a couple of hours whipping up a chart for their latest emblem. (You know what they say, resistance is futile and all… Continue reading Festival of the Lost
Back when I decided to make this Destiny cross-stitch, I had no idea just A.) how long it would take and B.) how difficult working with a single color is. (I mean, it's like yaaaaawn.) That being said, this is my largest Destiny cross-stitch to date, overthrowing the Cross-Stitch of Doom that started the trip… Continue reading Moment of Triumph
I get a LOT of questions about where I get my patterns. The answer is...a lot of places. So I decided to make this post (which is, as of right now, a WIP) so that there is an easy place for you to find out where the charts came from (if you so choose). When… Continue reading The List!
