Doctor Who

Doctor Who 50th!

So, I said I was going to do it…and I did! I had a Doctor Who 50th Anniversary viewing party!


Me and my girl before everyone arrived. We’re both wearing our Her Universe dresses and the headbands I’ve been talking about!



After we watched (and gasped…and cheered…and maybe shed a tear or two), we had craft time! I saw a really great blog post from Doodle Craft on how to make your own sonic screwdriver pens! You can check out the post HERE.


Everyone making their sonics!

Both kids and adults enjoyed craft time! It was super fun to all get around the table, play with some sculpey and discuss what we thought of the show.


Our Sonic Screwdrivers!

We had so much fun! I feel like I should have some sort of craft at every party!


Doctor Who dress was encouraged. Here is a trio of TARDIS’!

Hey Doctor Who fans!!!

Are you getting ready for the upcoming Doctor Who 50th Anniversary? Are you having a viewing party? Are you headed to your local theater so you can watch the special on the big screen? Do you plan on dressing up?

I am.

What does this have to do with my crafting? Well, I designed these headbands for HerUniverse… and right now you can buy them at your local Hot Topic store (they seem to be out of stock on the website). If you happen to be looking for an accessory to go with your TARDIS or Dalek outfit, you should check them out!!

Seriously, here are my friends wearing them…and I think they look super cute (although my friends are super cute to begin with).


The Dalek headband!


And the TARDIS headband!

Interrupting my regularly scheduled blog…

Pardon me while I interrupt my blog for this bit of awesome!

My daughter and I are the first Mother/Daughter duo to be featured for The Year of the Fan Girl on Ashley Ackstein’s HerUniverse blog! How freaking cool is that?!? I am super honored to be nominated by Ashley to be featured, and I can’t wait to hear what Lily thinks about this!

You can read the post here!

How exciting! She even included a little spoiler about a secret project. Of course, I’ll have to let you know more about that later. ::wink::

Back to the usual thing…

Thursday, January 12th, 2012 | blah blah blah, Friday Night Knitting, hats, People I Meet | No Comments

So helllllllloooooo 2012. I can already tell this is going to be a better year than 2011 for sure. Now it’s time to get back to my Friday Night knitting time!

This past Friday I met the girls up at the shop and this time, Angelique brought her boyfriend Joe! He is a super swell guy and totally brave to spend time in a knit shop with the likes of *us*. He even did a little knitting! Angelique needs to give him serious bonus points for that!

But just to up the nerd level on this post a tiny bit…let me just say that he has a knit item that Angelique had made him that is truly drool worthy.

Friday Night Knitting

I want one...

Of course, now that I am done with my Christmas knitting, I can start some things for myself (or maybe finish that Mountain View Sweater that is just snoozing on the needles with only it’s backside done). I started winding yarn for a fair isle hat I’ve been in the mood to work on…hopefully I will have some photos soon…

I am thinking 2012 is the year of the hat for me….

Some yarn for my new project...
