Martha Stewart is having a “contest” of sorts. If you go post a comment with your blog name over on this article about creating blogs, there is a chance that they will feature your blog on their site. I know it’s pretty much a snowball’s chance in hell for a little blogger like [...]
I wanted to share some linkage with you guys. All of these blogs have featured some of my work and I really appreciate it! And all of these sites are pretty neat in their own right, so if you wanna go visit any of them, please do!
Custom DS on DS Fanboy (hosted by [...]
Morning Toast had a fabulous idea back in the comments of this post. I was planning on doing a cross stitch of these, but I lost a lot of detail when I translated the design over to little squares.

I’ve made another guitar strap! This one features characters from Joust.
This one is for one of Alex’s jamming buddies, who also happens to be his boss. Now listen to this: Alex works for this guy who likes to come into his office and play guitar with him. Alex keeps his second guitar [...]
Alrighty, so I’m getting closer to perfecting the design for DS cases. Tell me what you think:
This is the closest I’ve gotten so far to the perfect dimensions. I’ll need to add a row on the bottom and sides to it’s not straining at the corners. I’m also finding that different brands [...]

Note to self (and any future parents): Try to keep toddlers contained during snack time. Otherwise you’ll be cleaning crumbs and smudges off the couch, walls, floor, the [...]
