I love Craftster. There are tons of nerdy people over there and everyone comes up with the most unusual things. Here are a couple of things that I found that I think are absolutely great.
1. Beware the Leopard
I LOVE that someone finally made a Hitchhikers Guide craft that wasn't a knitted character! This sign is the sign that Arthur Dent finds in the basement while trying to find paperwork to save his house. I love the little filigree at the top too, it makes it look so quaint. There is more info here
2. Another cross stitch from another show
Arrested Development! This is from a supplement that Dr. Fünke’s 100% Natural Good-Time Family-Band sang about. (Warning: Teamocil may cause numbness of the extremities, short term memory loss and may decrease your sex drive) More information.
3. Star Wars decoupage!
Oh come on, you know I had to put some Star Wars stuff in here.This frame is so cool. She also made a pencil holder cup. I actually bought a Star Wars comic book so that I could decoupage a dresser that I have, but I never got around to it. The comic book is still sitting on my shelf. Maybe now I'll get off my butt and do it, this one turned out so well! I also like when people make wallets out of comic book pages--maybe if I thought I could sew reasonably enough through contact paper I could try that.
Anyway, if you haven't ever been to craftster, check it out! It's a lot of fun and everyone is very supportive. It's where I learned how to crochet!
On the news front, the boy and I have been tinkering around with a new character instead of working on Firefly people (even though Mal is completely done now). But this new character is quite possible the cutest little dude EVER! I think I'll be able to post pictures of him tomorrow. Seriously. Cutest dude ever. Stay tuned!
