1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / TARDIS Cutting Board on: May 28, 2014 12:31:09 PM
I have a cousin getting married who also loves Doctor Who. I made this cutting board for her kitchen. The majority of the board is made of cherry. The black is wenge, the "blue" is black walnut and the letters, light and windows are maple.

There were so many pieces I had to glue together!

The grain of the wenge is gorgeous!
2  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Cherry and Zebrawood Side Tables on: April 21, 2014 08:32:46 AM
My little brother got married so I decided to attempt to make him some side tables. I'd never really done any wood working projects this big before so I went for a simple design.

It's all made of cherry except for the two accent squares of zebra wood. Never having done drawers before I was very concerned they weren't going to turn out, but with a lot of sanding and some paste wax, they are so smooth. To finish it I used Tung oil and the a wipe on poly finish.

I love how they turned out and the newlyweds loved them too. They fit perfectly at their new place.
3  COOKING / Dessert / Pi Apple Pi on: March 08, 2014 07:19:16 AM
Pi day is one of my favorite holidays, who doesn't love an excuse to make Pi! This year I attempted my first apple pie using this tutorial. The result was delicious and absolutely nerdy!

The numbers ended up all lying flat and got cut when slicing the pie but here's one 8 that survived!
4  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Lego Quilt on: March 02, 2014 07:59:28 AM
I decided my lego room needed a new handmade quilt. I used this tutorial to make all 448 blocks and then hand sewed them all together using some extra black yarn I had. It is ended up being 63"x80", just enough to fit and cover up the bed frame.

5  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Saber Lego Minifig on: February 10, 2014 09:34:24 AM
One of my favorite anime is Fate Stay Night and I love legos. Obviously the coolest thing in the world to have would be a Lego Minifig of my favorite character. Unfortunately they don't make them so I had to whip up one of my own. I covered an extra hair piece I had with clay to get it to the right style and then painted it the right color. The skirts I found a pattern and then used my silhouette cameo to cut it out onto some extra fabric I had lying around that I covered with a matte liquid. Everything else was painted on. Luckily I had some extra armor and sword pieces to cover in paint.

I'm not quite pleased with how her face turned out but I have to go get some smaller brushes to fix it. These are the character she's based off.

With her armor and sword.

Her regular outfit.

For scale.
6  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Golden Snitch Headphone Ball on: January 03, 2014 09:15:57 AM
I hate having my headphones just lying around in my bag just waiting to end up tangled. So I made this little case to help fix that problem.

I modified this pattern a bit to make it.

7  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Pokemon Trainer on: November 01, 2013 09:26:39 AM
This year I really wanted to go as a Pokemon trainer.

I bought a plain white hat and painted the brim and pokeball with some fabric paint. I used some black fabric and whipped up a quick vest using one of my favorite shirts as a pattern. The arm cuffs were fairly simple. I used some left over pink fabric from the bag and black fabric from the vest and put them together. I'm pretty happy with how everything turned out!


I had some fabric and I designed and created a bag template and then sewed myself up a bag. The gym badges are made with some air drying clay, lots of different paint colors and some hot glue and pins for the backs.

8  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Completed Projects / Exploding Picture Box on: September 18, 2013 08:18:21 AM
My husband and I love taking some silly pictures but I never really want to put those in our show off scrapbooks. So I found this tutorial on Pintrest and had to give it a go.

9  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Don't Blink Pillowcase on: August 29, 2013 09:26:18 PM
I made this pillowcase for my little sister, she's the one who introduced me to Doctor Who. The Don't Blink is done with embroidery floss. It's one of my first attempts at something like this... I probably should've watched some youtube videos to get a better idea of what to do. But I'm happy with how it turned out and I'm pretty sure this'll get me favorite sister status forever!

10  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Fandom Bookshelf on: August 24, 2013 03:37:30 PM
I had this plain wooden bookshelf that needed an overhaul. I used flat and gloss paint in the same color to make my fandom logos stand out. Now my bookshelf fits perfectly in my TARDIS room.

I included Harry Potter, Avenger, Hunger Games, Doctor Who and Pokemon Symbols. Deciding which ones to chose were difficult!
