I received a fantastic package from Ninaprettyballerina!



The TimTams are already gone...now I know what to ask for next time! I super excited for the Violet Crumble and the Berries and Creme Milky Way. Little nervous about the Musk Lifesavers though Wink There's also tea, gum, fruit jerky (is that what its called? It's looks delicious, either way) and a tiny little Flake bar. Obviously there's more, but as my bf has run off with all the chips I can't remember everything...

And here's my new Koala enjoying his snack:



She also sent a bunch of recipes. Thanks Ninaprettyballerina!

4  Nerdist "Find Your Tribe" Cross Stitch in Needlework: Completed Projects by Staar84 on: August 23, 2012 01:20:10 AM
Let me warn you first, I'm terrible at cross stitch. I don't do it how you're supposed to, so I don't do very many. So the edges are a little sloppy around the corners, and trust me, you don't want to see the back. But I felt like a cross stitch was the best way to do this one since it resembles pixals. Regardless, this one is very special to me personally. The center is based on the logo from the Nerdist Podcast, hosted by Chris Hardwick, Matt Mira, and Jonah Ray (they're comedians). This spring they did a tour, doing live podcasts in different cities. They came to Boulder, CO, which is about an hour away from me, so my boyfriend and I went since we're both HUGE fans of the podcast. The quote is from this video, where Chris talks about finding friends you can be yourself around, even if they're not from your town, and how much the internet has helped people find other liked-minded individuals. That even if you were picked on as a child, or felt like you didn't fit in, as an adult if you follow your passions you could "find your tribe" (just fyi, the quote itself is about 9 minutes in, so if you don't want to watch the whole thing you don't have to). I feel like geeky crafting has really done that for me, so I really needed to do this.





I started this cross stitch about the time we bought tickets, but I was working so much I didn't have time to finish it before the live show. I brought it anyway, and they all autographed it; including Astronomer Phil Plait, (from Bad Astronomy) who was the guest. He was really awesome too, he talked about how much HE loves geek crafters, and told me about the TARDIS builders group, which I had no idea existed before then Cheesy

The podcast (the one we went to) is here: http://www.nerdist.com/2012/03/nerdist-podcast-phil-plait-live-in-boulder/
If you've never listened to Nerdist I highly recommend it, they're hilarious. There's also a ton of other podcasts on the site, including a writer's one, a comic book one, and one about Star Trek hosted by the son of Gene Roddenberry. http://www.nerdist.com/podcasts/



And Matt Mira is an awesome hugger, btw.

SO I received an AWESOME package from HaylBale a few weeks ago and I just now have a chance to post pictures. This girl must be the greatest stalker of all time, I loved EVERYTHING!!

The whole group


My favorite thing: an amigurumi! This is SO cute!



A painting that is so cool because I have a T-shirt that matches!

(and here's the shirt)

Magnets and a painted ceramic fox:

The magnet box:

The ridiculous amount of tea. The tea came in a painted box with a story about Fox and his wife (apparently I forgot to take a picture of that, I'll have to post that later)



THANK YOU SO MUCH HaylBale!!!!!!!
