I never intended for this to become my crafting blog, but that’s pretty much all I’ve been doing with my free time lately. Continue Reading “This, That, and the Other Things”
When I go out shopping, I love to just look at stuff. I can amuse myself for hours just browsing through the aisles, just seeing what interesting things I can find. The craft stores are especially troublesome. Any trip that takes me less than 30 minutes is a ‘short’ one.
While on a yarn run this morning, I found GIANT bottle caps in the clearance section. One of them is 3″ in diameter and the other is 2″. I decided that I must have them, zomg now, brought them home and made two new, giant buttons for my fabric wall hanging that stores almost all of my buttons. Since they are bottle caps and the game(s) Fallout use bottle caps as currency, I made them into Fallout buttons!
So I do know how to make things that aren’t geeky!
Isn’t it adorable!? I don’t know if the M&M’s really work on that bottom tier like that but they won’t last very long. I expect them to all be gone by Monday night. Continue Reading “My Three-Tiered Candy Dish”
I have a love of Zelda that borders on obsession. I have a 3 foot Link sticker on my wall and a much smaller Link sticker on my laptop (Linktop!).
While I was browsing the internet during lunch, I found a Triforce pillow someone had crocheted. Hey I can do that! Continue Reading “It’s Dangerous to go Alone! Take This…”
It took two weeks, but I finally got my last epic project gifted! Continue Reading “You’re Standing on my Scarf”
In our house we have a second living room. At some point, the garage/carport got turned into an actual room. It can’t be classified a bedroom since it doesn’t have it’s own source of heat. Continue Reading “Necessity is the Mother of Invention”
I’ve been arm’s deep in yarn lately, but I thought I’d show off my latest project. I kept seeing all of these really cool pixelated afghans floating around on craftster, ravelry, and pintrest. “I can do that,” I told myself. A good friend of mine had a birthday coming up (it was Friday, July 20th. I’m week late) and I was completely stumped on what to make for him. He loves Star Wars. Somehow the two ideas merged and hence, the Death Star Afghan was born.
Right now I’m running a Dresden Files RPG game, continuing the story we wove when we Alpha tested the game back in 2008-9. I realized the other day that a stole a bit of the plot, and some of the planned ending from one of my favorite video games–Lufia II: Rise of the Sinistrals.
Victory, but at a high cost. Continue Reading “Victory, but at what Cost?”
I enjoy video games. I have since I was a little kid. I prefer RPGs and Action Adventure games to First-Person Shooters. I mostly play games for the story first, the gameplay second, and the graphics dead last. My two favorite games of all time are Lufia II: Rise of the Sinistrals (SNES) which came out fifteen years ago and Final Fantasy III/Six (SNES/PS1) which was seventeen years ago. A game that looks shiny and pretty but sucks for story isn’t a game I will enjoy. Continue Reading “There is no Cow Level!”
I am a bit of a bibliophile. It’s a lot like saying rain is a bit wet, the sun is a bit warm, and the ocean is a bit salty. I’m also a fast reader; I finish books in single sittings more often than not. My favorite genre is Urban Fantasy but I’ll read things from almost any genre. It kinda distresses me how many romance novels I own (not quite a dozen) though since it is one of my least favorite genres.
