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”

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!”

Twofer Tuesday 1: Goodies!

As (I hope) I mentioned, this weekend I came home with a nice new array of fabrics, as well as an old Scrabble board that I will find a use for. I am not entirely sure which game board craft to do with the board, but I thought it could be useful, regardless. As forContinue reading “Twofer Tuesday 1: Goodies!”

Twofer Tuesday 2: Failure Update

If you read my wildly successful Guide to Failure, then you already know that my level of geekiness extends to painting miniatures. This is a source of entertainment and heartbreak. After my descent into madness and decision to start all over, I put away Adelaide (the miniature) for a while. But today I was readyContinue reading “Twofer Tuesday 2: Failure Update”

Twofer Tuesday 2: Miniature Magic

I mentioned in “A Day in Pictures“, or rather showed, that I bought a new miniature at Riders on Saturday. I collect, paint, and play a Warhammer army of Chaos, but I was looking for something a little different from metal and grotesque creatures. Don’t get me wrong – I love my dragon ogre, butContinue reading “Twofer Tuesday 2: Miniature Magic”

Twofer Tuesday 1: Site Review, Geek Crafts [dot] Com

Since I am so new to crafting, I must steal [read: borrow] ideas from the web. But, I mean, that’s what they’re there for, right? And I find a lot of great ideas and projects for the likes of me. A real bonus is when I can find projects that also satisfy my inner geek.Continue reading “Twofer Tuesday 1: Site Review, Geek Crafts [dot] Com”

In lieu of flowers

I titled this post a half hour ago, and then I went about addressing some Thank You cards. Now, coming back to it, “in lieu of flowers”, I recognize why it seemed so easy for me to type. I used to write obituaries for a local newspaper, and when a family wanted money donated toContinue reading “In lieu of flowers”
