This is my first day as a member of Craftster after years of lurking. As an introduction to the site I thought I would share some geekcraft I created for my friends 25th Birthday earlier this year.

She is a massive fan of a TV programme called Misfits - it's the UK's answer to Heroes for those who have never watched it - in particular a character called Rudy. I bought a white mug and bowl and got to painting them with my ceramic paint pens. I wanted to use the skeleton characters from the opening credits as the main design but I also liked the idea of adding one of the (safe for work) Rudy quotes. Here are the end results:

I also made a few extra bits to go with these including a Mario Piranha Plant wine glass and a shrinkplastic Robin symbol keyring and packaged in a Mario Gift box. Here is a picture of the complete gift in case anyone is interested.

They're fab! I love Misfits, and I agree, that must have been pretty hard trying to find a safe for work quote! Cheesy

It was very hard to find a safe for work quote but it was a great excuse to keep rewatching the third series.

I love the Mario piranha plant. I've never seen the misfits but the chicken quote cracked me up for whatever reason. I'm going to go see if it's on netflix now.
