Futurama Swap Package

The latest craft swap I’ve completed was cartoon themed. I recieved an amazing package of Adventure Time goodies that make me ridiculously happy. And here is what I sent my partner. This 241 Tote was one of those “this is going to be amazing – crap what the heck did I get myself into –…

Literary Map Necklace – Neverland

When I made this sculpted map last week, someone on Facebook suggested I make necklaces. And you know how much I LOVE seeing how small I can make things! Tiny things are my favorite. The first map that came to mind was Neverland. It was so much fun to sculpt this tiny thing. I’m not…

Map of Calyhon – Scultpure

You know those projects that pop into your head and refuse to let you accomplish a single other thing until they are finished? I’ve got a couple of swap projects that I needed to finish up this week, but this map has been consuming all of my free time. (Who needs sleep anyway?) I CAN…

Rambling

I can’t sleep. I’ve just been really stressed out lately, and I don’t want to go to sleep because I know I’ll just have to wake up tomorrow and I already don’t want to. So instead, I’m sitting in my craft room, binge watching Merlin while I ATTEMPT to finish up some projects that have…

Big Damn Heroes Swap

My craft swap obsession is still going strong, but I’ve become a lot more picky about which ones I sign up for. Mostly I just do the nerdy fandom specific ones because I can’t resist them! This one was particularly fun to participate in. I made my partner a bag that has a Serenity reverse…

The Great Wallpaper Fiasco of 2015

I had lots of plans this weekend. I have three embroidery hoops I still need to finish, and 4 illustrations. I also wanted to straighten up my craft room since it got a little disheveled while I was looking for things I needed to pack for our CT trip. BUT none of those things happened.…

Embroidery Hoops

Whenever I hear about people who are struggling, be it financially or physically, I always get this sinking feeling in my gut. I wish there was more I could do to help others, I wish I were a millionaire so I could just give them the money they need. It makes me feel so tiny…

Vacation

This gif pretty much wraps up the trip we took to CT last week to visit my family. Lots of jumping and laughing. And swimming… LOTS of swimming. And also lots and lots of snuggling my new nephew! I’m going through some serious baby withdrawal right now. I want to drive all the way back…

Craft Swaps

I’ve found myself sort of obsessed with Instagram craft swaps lately. And by obsessed I mean I’ve signed up for about a dozen different ones. I love making things for other people, and I love getting fun handmade things in the mail! So really, there is nothing not to love. Occasionally you do end up…
