Live long and be crafty: Star Trek Crafts

I have to fess up. I’ve never really been well versed in the Star Trek world. If I try to wax poetic about Star Trek, I will fail. Miserably. But what I can do is talk about how awesome all the Star Trek related crafts are, and let me tell you, they are awesome. There’s […]

X-Men Crafts, Costumes and More

X-Men Origins: Wolverine opens in the US on May 1st, but the X-Men have been captivating audiences in comic books, cartoon television series, video games, and movies since 1963. Though they didn’t start out that way, the X-Men are now the most racially and ethnically diverse main group in the Marvel Universe! Couple that with […]

Who’s Watching the Watchmen Crafts?

Have you read Alan Moore’s Watchmen? Seen the movie? I’m a dabbler in the world of comic books and graphic novels. I tend to like ones that are dark and complicated.

Crafting Entertainment: Twilight

Craftsters are notorious for creating crafts in honor of their favorite media be it movies, video games, tv shows, or even internet phenomena. Whenever we can’t find exactly what we want, we make it! And even though there is usually a LOT of stuff already being marketed for these things, we know we can make […]

Knitting Sci-Fi Style

If you haven’t seen the new movie based on Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, I highly recommend it! Even if you haven’t read the book! I guess we all knew it wouldn’t be too long before people would succumb to the urge to create their own versions of the characters from the scene where they […]

Homage to Life Aquatic

I haven’t seen The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou yet but it’s next on my list. Gotta love those Wes Anderson movies! Oh and the trailer reminded me of what a good song David Bowie’s Queen Bitch is, which upon hearing it I immediately added it to my iTunes library and cannot stop listening to. […]

Knitting Rocks!

This isn’t exactly breaking news but I was just reminded of this as I was watching one of the new iPod commercials. A while back the genious French director Michel Gondry made a video for the song Walkie Talkie Man by the band Steriogram where just about everything in the video is knitted! It’s such […]
