Grab Bag – Armadillo Gloves

Standard

ImageThese armadillo gloves by Murat & Yusuf are downright squee worthy! Makes me wish I wasn’t a complete mess when it comes to knitting.

Disney Thursdays – Steampunk White Rabbit Cosplay

Standard

This week I have something a little different and possibly a little creepy for Disney Thursday. Jen’s Steampunk White Rabbit Cosplay:

Image

 

You may know Jen from her popular blog Cake Wrecks. I, however, am a huge fan of her Epbot blog which is her place to geek out about anything and everything.

Image

 

Everything you see has pretty much been made by her or her husband. Including the amazing LEATHER mask and corset. So much talent in those two. I’m a little jealous 😉

TV Wednesday – MST3k

Standard

I grew up watching MST3K on Sunday mornings with my dad. Bad sci-fi movies AND hilarious commentary? Yes, please! When I found these guys by Rachel McKay I nearly flipped!

Too stinkin’ adorable! Tom Servo was always my favorite. His slinky arms cracked me up. Who was your favorite?

 

Video Game Tuesday – Mario Mushroom String Art

Standard

Ugh. I can’t believe I forgot to post this earlier.  I was too caught up in being dismayed that I’m not David Tennant’s companion after Rose Tyler (I’m finally watching all of Doctor Who from The 9th Doctor on.)

Anyway, here’s an awesome bit of string art by “ashntoph” from the Sprite Stitch Message Boards:

I think it would be fun to try string art, but I’m afraid of hammer and nails. Maybe push pins would work?

 

Weekly Update – A Little Bit of E’rything

Standard

You guys. I. Am. Exhausted.  I’ve been a little bit of everywhere these past few weeks. Yesterday was a very good friend’s birthday party and then I had to do a quick turn around to be at work for 8:30 this morning.  I don’t usually work weekends so it was HARD.

Anyway, I have all kinds of updates for you today! First up is my Nanoblock set:

ImageI could have gotten so much more done on this but I don’t ever want to finish it 😦 For this exact reason I have a half finished Lego Millennium Falcon in my closet…

Next up is the Spaced Cross Stitch:

ImageI have no idea how I had any time at all to work on this, guys.  But I did! As you can tell I’m chugging right along. We got a corner of Daisy’s head now and I’m working on the “ACE” in “Spaced.”  After seeing The World’s End twice this weekend I am so pumped to work on this more!

Finally, we’ve got this beauty:

Image

 It’s three skeins of Juniper Moon Farm‘s Moonshine in Swimming pool. I’ve been following Susan’s blog for so long now I don’t even remember how I found it.  Needless to say I was ecstatic when I found it when I went to go use a gift certificate at a local yarn shop, Downtown Knits. I am now ruined. I’ll never be able to buy yarn at a chain store ever again.

I haven’t started anything yet but I plan on making this shawl with it:

Image

Whew. That was a mighty post for me. Now I must cross stitch and watch episodes of Doctor Who.

 

 

 

Grab Bag – Glitter Table Top

Standard

Image

I’m committed to this blog, ya see.  I just walked in my front door from catching the Cornetto Trilogy. It was a complete blast! However, it ran from 5:30pm until Midnight and I’m now, as the Brits would say, knackered. It was my first time going to the movies by myself and it was worth every freakin’ minute.

Anyway, I have a DIY project I found online for you today:

ImageGlitter Table Top by MadiganMade.

It’s so shiny!  She even includes the instructions for you, however this is way too over my head and therefore I will never attempt it myself. I will accept a donation from someone with more talent than I do, though!

 

Disney Thursdays – Up Charm Brooch

Standard

I work in an airport as a merchandising manager floating between 6 stores.  One of these stores is a toy store in which we play kids movies all day.  Most of our selection has grown tiresome but there are a few movies I just don’t tire of, one of them being Pixar’s Up. 

Today I bring you KawaiiCandyCouture‘s Up Charm Brooch

Image

The beads as the balloons are freakin’ adorable as is the miniature Adventure Book.  She sells these charms as earrings, necklaces, and more.  She also has Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones inspired jewelry! Something for everyone!
