That Craft That Came From the Moon

Or rather, crafts. The Destiny beta came and went. I surprised myself and Babe by actually playing it myself rather than sticking to the vicarious gamer role that I embrace with pride. I was able to play with my sister from another mister and prove that I really have no skills as a FPS player. (I keptContinue reading “That Craft That Came From the Moon”

Per Audacia ad astra (Or, how to get one step closer to world domination)

In the video game world, my love is basically divided among three subjects: Nintendo, Halo, and Bungie. (OK, there is a sliver for Kingdom Hearts and LEGO games –and the Batman Arkham series– but you get the point.) It seemed appropriate that in celebration of Bungie Day, I would decide to craft something. “Something” beingContinue reading “Per Audacia ad astra (Or, how to get one step closer to world domination)”

Guardians of the (8-bit) Galaxy

So, in my latest attempt to stall from the Dark World cross-stitch (which will get finished some day, I promise), I decided to tackle yet another Destiny project. Absolutely shocking, I know! A couple of weeks ago, @cgbarrett over on Twitter posted a picture of the Guardians in 8-bit form. And we all know howContinue reading “Guardians of the (8-bit) Galaxy”

All in a year’s work…

Looking back, I can say that this has been my most productive year cross-stitching/crafting ever. In fact, I’m sure I couldn’t list off all the projects that I finished if I tried. (Like most crafters I know, I tend to give away the things that I make.) But, I do have my favorites. So hereContinue reading “All in a year’s work…”

Have yourself a geeky little Christmas

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. TheContinue reading “Have yourself a geeky little Christmas”

I love cross-stitching.

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 planContinue reading “I love cross-stitching.”

Writing contests, word limits, and Bungie — oh my!

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 secondContinue reading “Writing contests, word limits, and Bungie — oh my!”

It was my Destiny…

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.Continue reading “It was my Destiny…”
