My husband is a pretty silly guy. One of his favorite movies of all time is Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. After he got it on Bluray, he became like a Scott Pilgrim evangelist. Anyone that stepped foot in our house that hadn’t seen the movie, was forced persuaded to watch it. [...]

Have I mentioned that I have some really freakin’ cool new friends since I moved to Huntsville? This is what my newest crafty bud, Misty Granade, finished last night:
Bask in the awesomeness with me! You should also go to her and her husband’s blog. They are hilarious and have great kid stories, [...]
So I’ve finished two crafty Christmas presents! Woot! However, being that they are supposed to be surprises for family members that come to my blog occasionally, I’m afraid I can’t show you guys quite yet. I’m such a tease.
BUT! I will give you a small clue as to what the current [...]
Sorry, foodies. No cookie recipe this week. I am going to be over at my Mother in law’s house, picking her brain about sewing patterns. I am making out Halloween costumes this year. I don’t know WHAT I was thinking when I agreed to do that since the only thing I’ve [...]
I’ve seen my “Home Is Where the Controller Is” pattern pop up in other places! Two people have made cross stitches of their own using the pattern. They did beautiful jobs, too. Check it out!
Terracruz in the Craftster Forums. Ironically, she got more viewers than I did originally. Oh well!
I’ve made another guitar strap! This one features characters from Joust.

I went cross stitch crazy this weekend. Here is what I made!
Being a 360 fangirl, I chose the Xbox controller for this one. But while making it, I kept getting ideas for other variations. While I didn’t have time (or the desire, really) to cross-stitch them all, I did make patterns for them. [...]
I finally finished the guitar strap!
This was definitely the most fun cross stitch I have ever done. Alex said he wanted “retro-fabulous” colors, and these are the ones he chose. I was a little skeptical at first, but it turned out great! And of course he loves it.
There are more pictures over [...]
Anyone that cross stitches, knows about those little plastic-ey wrappers that come wrapped around the threads. One is useful, it has the color information. The other is just to keep the threads together. During the last weeks, I’ve accumulated quite a few of these little doohickies and decided I should do something [...]
Sooo I left my thimble at home so I couldn’t finish the Space Invaders guitar strap like I promised on Friday.
I did finally finish the project I’d been working on for over two weeks. I mentioned my bud Will’s birthday a while back, and I was hoping to have this finished in time, but [...]
