It's the beginning of July and my oldest is one year older. (I haven't come to terms with it yet, obviously.) She didn't want a cake this year, which left the theme of her party to us. And since she's been on a HUGE Ultimate Spider-Man kick, I knew what it should be. Sometimes the cheapest things… Continue reading With Great Crafting Comes Great Responsibility
Yup, Mollie's at it again. OK, technically, she has nothing to do with my burnout, but her clever crafts have kept me crafting even though cross-stitching is not my friend right now. The latest project? Mini Guinea Hams. When she first posted the Star Wars Guinea Hams, I fell in love. When my girls saw… Continue reading Ham It Up

So, you knew I was so buying my buddy Mollie Johanson's book: Stitch Love Sweet Creatures Big & Small: Cute Kitties and Cows and Cubs and More...and a Yeti.… Continue reading Got me in stitches!
Recently, I was asked to commission a piece -- a DotA logo pillow. Now I'll admit, other than reading a few of random tweets on the subject, I know nothing about the game. Defense of the Ancients? That could quite possibly be the title of the new Stargate movie, for all I knew. Thankfully, I was… Continue reading DotA Tread on Me…
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!
