Twofer Tuesday 2: The problem with Pinterest

Given that I probably lost any and all readers with the title alone, I feel like I need to put a disclaimer here and say that I love Pinterest. I am as addicted as any self-respecting crafter. This post is simply an example of a problem with using it…just…you’ll see. While scouring on Pinterest aContinue reading “Twofer Tuesday 2: The problem with Pinterest”

Twofer Tuesday 1: Guest Post!

And I’m back, with a vengeance! Not quite that bad. I was gone for the weekend, visiting friends up in Traverse City. Had a great time, but did not get to writing or crafting so much. No worries, though! My mom, who is an actual, professional writer, was telling me about the cobbler she’s beenContinue reading “Twofer Tuesday 1: Guest Post!”

Twofer Tuesday 2: If we can’t save this craft, you can be damn sure we’ll avenge it

I’ll be the first to admit that the title is too long, but I really could not help myself. I’ve seen The Avengers 3 times – not as many as some, but more than I am accustomed to visiting the big screen, so any chance I have to quote the movie is a win inContinue reading “Twofer Tuesday 2: If we can’t save this craft, you can be damn sure we’ll avenge it”

Twofer Tuesday 1: Dinner for two

I had the day off today, and with so much time on my hands, I have to admit I was not as productive as I would have liked. Sure, I could blame Netflix and X-Men or Janet Evanovich (guilty, fast food reading pleasure, anyone?), but the truth is, I was just feeling lazy. Until aboutContinue reading “Twofer Tuesday 1: Dinner for two”

Trial, error, and sloppy work

Work today was nice and fast, and I spent about a half hour afterward shopping. I bought some materials for Eric to make some new wash for our miniatures, and I also picked up a few possible TARDIS supplies. I had thought about buying a flat, square jewelry box, along with some pine planks toContinue reading “Trial, error, and sloppy work”

Sunday Dinner (from scratch)

The original plan today was to go down to the beach, but schedules didn’t quite sync, and by the time we would have been ready, there would have been a line of cars waiting to get in. Besides, we had some errands to run (namely, return a shower head and buy the supplies to makeContinue reading “Sunday Dinner (from scratch)”

Mmmm! Cookies! (And TARDIS update)

Nothing says warm weather like baking! Well, okay, maybe that’s not entirely true, but I decided to try a new cookie recipe today. You can find it here. If you’re not a recipe-reading type, then I will give you the basics: whole wheat flour, oats, granulated and brown sugar, vanilla, egg, baking powder, salt, butter,Continue reading “Mmmm! Cookies!

Completely Unexpected Bonus Post!

http://tardisbuilders.com/ Where has this website been all my life? Have I been living under a rock? Perhaps a tree? In all of my wildest, geekiest, craftiest moments, how did I never think to search for a website like this? How have I never made a TARDIS?! This must be corrected immediately. Starting tomorrow, a newContinue reading “Completely Unexpected Bonus Post!”
