Mini Update.

Christmas is only a month away so Evan and I put up our tree last night! Last year Evan’s Grandma gave us an antique tree topper, and so this is the first year we have put it on the tree! This is also the first Christmas I have been exited about in 6 years or so. I’m really exited to give gifts this year as well since I have some really fun ideas ๐Ÿ™‚

I also Wanted to show off my Gecko eggs! I’m really exited for them to hatch! December 2nd will be 65 days. It’s my first batch and ย I can’t wait to see what morph they are! I took a picture of both the new egg and the ones ready to hatch soon to show how much they grow over the 2 months!! ย The green dots on the larger ones is a marking done by me with a non-toxic marker to show the top. With these eggs you need to mark them to make sure they stay the same direction as when they were laid. The 2nd clutch was laid just outside of her “lay box” so when I found them, one had folded in on itself and the other had a dent. The one was a dud, but I’m crossing my fingers that the dented one (the dent is on the bottom of the egg) will still survive. Its happened before, its just not very common. When I candle it, I will be able to tell what the chances of it surviving are. Hopefully it will survive! Anyway, I hope you like the photos and as always, click to enlarge!


Evan and I

I have finally taken a photo of my first Cross stitch project. It took a few months working on it 3 days a week for about 4-6 hours a day. It was a very ambitious project, but was totally worth it! I used My Photo Stitch Which is a free Cross stitch pattern maker. I uploaded My photo and BOOM, I was ready to go. I’m really impressed at how it came out ๐Ÿ™‚

Here is the Original and Cross Stitch Version. I can’t wait to frame this one ๐Ÿ™‚ (click Image to view larger)

I wanted to do a quick project, and I ended up finishing it in only one day!

I’m a die hard Portal fan and Cannot wait for Portal 2 to come out! It looks fabulous! I’m going to disappear for a month after its released!!!

Here is the Teaser Trailer for the first portal, If you don’t know what Portal is, you need to watch this ๐Ÿ™‚

And Portal 2!!!!!!!!!

Now for my Project!! This took about 4 hours total. It’s somewhat of an inside joke for all those who have played the first Portal!

I ย Heart My Companion Cube!

Now all I need to do is get some frames for all my projects!

Hand Cast Attempt #1

November 15, 2010 § Leave a comment

I had bought some Alginate and Plaster for making Casts. Before trying it out on a head, I did a test on my hand and Evans hand. First Ill start with my Hand. It didn’t take much time at all to do the cast, and only about 45 min for the plaster to set (30 min according to the bucket, but I didn’t want to take chances) It came out really well, and I was relieved!! There were a few messy bits on the finger tips and one Bubble had formed on the pad of one finger, but after a little craving and whatnot, It looks pretty fantastic!! I’m going to have to Experiment with some plaster and try to get the Bubble filled in, but for now, Heres some Photos!!! I didn’t think to take a before shot of this one, which Im kind disappointed about now. I must have just been toooooo exited in the moment ๐Ÿ˜›

I also left the photos as image files so you can enlarge to see the details!

Halloween 2010

November 15, 2010 § Leave a comment

Ive been slacking in my updates lately and I apologize. Things have been a little crazy lately and Ive been putting off a lot of stuff. Forgive me.

So here is Evan and I’s Halloween Get up. This Picture was taken after we had gotten home from a long day/night at the Wedding. We also didnt end up getting ANY pictures of us at the wedding itself which Im pretty dissapointed about. But without anymore delay, Heres the photos!

Edit: I found this Photo from the wedding of Evan and the Groom. Its fantastic!

So for our outfits, I picked up a Lab coat from a halloween store, pulled out the fake blood and Had a lot of fun splattering it! ย I think it turned out looking very impressive and Still has the “fresh blood” look to it! Im very happy how the blood effect turned out this year! Much, MUCH better than last years!

For the appliance on my chest, I had made it earlier in the month with liquid latex. I will Have to get a close up picture of it to really show off how gross it really looked!

The Slice effect on Evans head was a lot of fun, (other than the stress of trying to get it right on the actual day). I used Scar and nose wax, some latex and of course blood! I didnt end up getting a close up of that sadly. We got a lot of Compliments on the whole thing, and Im really happy with how it turned out!! Now I cant wait for Next halloween!!! Ohhhhh, the things that are swirling in my brain!

So, with that out of the way, I have been working hard on some cross stitch which I will be finishing up soon and posting! Keep checking back for some more fun stuff!!

Out Of The Frying Pan (And Into The Fire)

August 16, 2010 § Leave a comment

After Playing around, I have finally found a site that does almost everything that I want it to, so here we go.

Im dedicating this blog to crafts and anything else awesome that I make. So It will be myย  “Creations Blog” rather than a “Craft Blog”. Ill be most likely including everything from drawing, sculptures to things like.. yarn and possibly some really awesome Recipes. Ive been working on so many projects and hopefully this will give me some motivation to finish some of them.

Anywho.. Keep checking back, I will be uploading some of my past works and creations as soon as I get some pictures! ๐Ÿ™‚
