Oh, Navi, what would the Zelda fandom be without you? So, Mollie over at Wild Olive is having a Stitch-Love-Along. I missed round 1, but I was determined to get something done for round two (which goes until the 1st). She said customizing was fine, but I don't think she ever thought that her Glowing Fireflies Jar… Continue reading Hey, listen!
Sometimes on the internet, you can find something so magical, so amazing, so completely fantastic, you're like, "WHOEVER DID THIS IS GENIUS!!!1!!1!" And sometimes, if you're really lucky, they write a tutorial on how you can make the aforementioned magical, amazing, completely fantastic thing yourself. That's what happened when I went over to Our Nerd… Continue reading (DON’T) KEEP IT A SECRET TO EVERYBODY
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" being… Continue reading Per Audacia ad astra (Or, how to get one step closer to world domination)
Imagine sitting at your desk, wondering what time it is. I mean, sure you could look at your computer clock or grab your phone, but why would you miss a chance to look up and see the Traveler hanging on your wall, waiting to tell you when it is? That's right, you wouldn't. When I found… Continue reading Time Traveler
For Christmas, Babe got me this awesome book. Just what I need, right? More books to enable my crafting habit. We needs all the craft books, Precious. The pin cushion on the front totally caught my eye, but if you know me, you know what I was thinking. That's right, Mario. So, I Binged it… Continue reading It’s a me! Crafting Mario!
If you aren't braving the crowds trying to get that last minute shopping done or watching The Hobbit this weekend, I found a quick and easy tutorial to make some pretty epic looking snowflakes over here. I actually made two batches: blue and white for our house (The project is easy enough that my 7 and… Continue reading (Artificial) Snowstorm
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.
