I have an obsession with TeeFury

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….
I’m sure most of you have been in my position. You see an awesome shirt at one of those one-day sale sites. They’re nerdy, witty and cheap. “Awesome, I can totally fork over a few bucks for a shirt”… until a few days later another must-have shirt is posted… and then another… and another.. and another. After cleaning out my closet this week I’ve realized that I’ve got a problem… I’M ADDICTED! But my addiction is to one particular site, Tee Fury.

Today's design is now a pair of matching shirts for The Man and myself.

My friends have always complimented me on my shirts and I’ll admit I generally buy them for the compliments. Did I mention that The Man of the house is also addicted? We even have some matching t-shirts. What gets us most is that some of the designs aren’t always available after it’s been printed on Tee Fury. If they are, they’re generally upwards of $20 and I’m cheap. Tee Fury has some of the best designs I’ve seen on a lot of these sites. I used to be a fan of shirt.Woot, but after it’s Merger with Amazon, the selection at Woot! has steadily declined. Then I found Tee Fury.
A few months ago, The Man of the house and myself were nerding it up at a sci-fi con wearing our Tee Fury apparel. We ran into a couple of other nerds wearing the same shirts. Exchanged some Sci-fives. While walking past a dealer’s booth, some dude yelled, “Hey, nice shirt!” We walked over only to realize it was actually one of the artists who designed our shirt. He was a really cool guy and it made me appreciate TeeFury all the more.

Just a handful of designs that I've bought from Tee Fury.

So if you’re looking to ditch Shirt.woot for a site with a stronger consistency and more vibrant designs, Check out Teefury. Just make sure you’ve got a few bucks in your bank account first. 😉

MAY THE 4TH…

Self portrait 🙂

Can you guess what I’m excited for? May the 4th is a day for nerds world-wide to celebrate their love for Star Wars, or at least gloat on Facebook with “May the 4th be with you” witty remarks.

Whatever the reason you’re celebrating, I hope it’s a good one!

Decoupage Comic Box

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

First off, let me apologize for the lack of posts this past week. Long story short I got laid off last week and then a family friend was severely injured in Afghanistan and so my attention was elsewhere. Now that I’m back in a state of creativity, I’ve got plenty of posts coming up as I’ve got a lot of free time on my hand for the time being.
Today’s craft came to me while wondering at my local craft store. I used to decoupage boxes all the time when I was younger and I figured it’d be a great way to celebrate “May the 4th” (tomorrow) with a Star Wars decoupage box. 🙂
Enjoy! Continue reading

The party was a HUGE success

Despite the bad weather we’ve been having here in Dallas the past few days, 15 people turned out for our Dr Who party (out of 20-something who RSVPd) and everyone really had a great time. People came in costumes and Dr. Who shirts and plungers in hand.

Chocolate & PB Dalek Cupcakes

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….
Yup… you heard right! Chocolate. Peanut Butter. Daleks. So delicious and rich, you’ll find yourself exterminating the Daleks themselves. Or as the man of the house said, Extermi-nom-nom-nom!

I really wanted a good Dalek Cupcake for the party. I’d seen lots of versions on the internet, but none of which I thought looked that great. Determined to make on better, we spent a week going over options. Then we saw the mini muffin liners while at the grocery store and it all came together. Mini Cupcakes with mini Reese’s!! Obviously it was a success. Victory!!
I finished a test batch of cupcakes for our party this weekend. Since Passover starts tonight at sundown, I won’t be able to eat any cake for a while, and decided to go ahead and get these out of the way while I could still indulge.
** This recipe took a lot of time, patience and space in the fridge. If you plan on making a big batch, be sure to keep at least one shelf free in your fridge. I made a batch of 11 (one didn’t make it) and it was a tight squeeze. If you are serious about making these, I’d make sure you have a few hours to be able to focus your attention on it.

My new favorite Android App

The man of the house has learned long ago that he can’t leave his smart phone unattended for long before I’ve kidnapped it and adopted it as if it were my own. I still don’t have the money to  get one for myself, so the man has graciously shared.
With all the android apps and games floating around, you think my favorite app would be something useful, like a bar-code scanner or converter of sorts. Maybe even a Pokedex? But no, my new favorite app is one of the more recent apps released by Google Labs.

Origami Bow Tie

As I hinted before in my previous post, I’m throwing a Dr. Who party this month for the series premiere starting April 23rd on BBC America. Since the man of the house and I are throwing a party, I’ve gotten entirely in the spirit of Dr. Who and will be whipping up a ton of favors, food and drinks for the event. And what better way to start it off than with Bow ties!

You’ll need the following supplies:

  • Red Construction paper
  • Craft Glue
  • Scissors
  • 1″ bar pins with adhesive backi ng
  • A lot of patience
This design will take you about 15-20 minutes. The hardest part for me was getting the origami part down. I recommend you use some computer paper for the first test runs until you’re comfortable enough to do it with the construction paper. I do not recommend using card-stock. Continue reading
