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”
A few weeks ago, I’m honestly not sure when it was, I started a project with my photo box. My idea was to make one of those decorated ones that are in stores, albeit with a twist. The twist was that instead of a pattern, I was using pictures from vacations and clip-outs of maps.Continue reading “Now what…?”
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!”
Polymath Craft from the Past
What a weekend! Surprise for father-in-law was definitely a surprise. Beer was flowing, food was consumed, and it was an all-around good time. Eric was victorious in all games played, too, which did not surprise me; he is ruthless on the gaming field. I even returned home with a paper bag full of fabrics, whichContinue reading “Polymath Craft from the Past”
Upcoming projects….but first!
In light of my craftilicious job news yesterday, I rewarded myself with new walking/running shoes and a new crafty book: Improv Sewing. As a new stichin’ bitch, I actually kind of suck at using patterns and seeking perfection, so this book seemed like a great way to maneuver around all of that. I’ve already bookmarkedContinue reading “Upcoming projects….but first!”
Twofer Tuesday 1: The Frame Project is COMPLETE!
I mentioned a project that had hit a snag on Friday, and I am happy to say that I rethought it, and it is finished complete. Back story: I had had this idea to make a “Poem Frame”, which is pretty much what it sounds like. I cut up a poem and decoupaged it ontoContinue reading “Twofer Tuesday 1: The Frame Project is COMPLETE!”
The Crafty Polymath’s Guide to Failure
Greetings, friends, Romans, countrymen. I thought long and hard yesterday about whether or not to post, and what, should I decide to take the plunge. If you have read this far, you have probably put two and two together: “a guide to failure?” you thought, followed by “didn’t know what to post…this woman never shutsContinue reading “The Crafty Polymath’s Guide to Failure”
It’s Friday; I’m in love!
I have been working diligently on a new project, but I hit a bit of snag, and I’m having to rethink the finished product. Therefore, I am not posting yet. I am also baking brownies. Or was. The timer just went off. Mmmm! Brownies! So in lieu of showcasing my own crafts today, I wantedContinue reading “It’s Friday; I’m in love!”
