Fallout/Idiocracy NYE Party Planning

Posted By The Mrs. on December 29, 2016 in NerdCrafting

2016 has been a shit show for children of the eighties. Politics aside* we lost a bunch of our favorite people. Carrie Fisher, Elie Wiesel, David Bowie….the list continues with far too many of the good’uns.   If the apocalypse is supposed to include taking up all the good people in advance of the hellfire, then […]

A Very Nerdy Christmas To You!

Posted By The Mrs. on December 27, 2016 in Our Life

Or, y’know whatever holiday you choose to celebrate. <3 Merry everything and happy always!! We’re not religious, we’re cultural. We celebrate Christmas mostly because the vast majority of our family and friends do, and a lot of the traditions are fun. It’s not that we need the excuse to dote on each other, we just use it anyway. […]

Amazing DeadPool White Elephant

Posted By The Mrs. on December 26, 2016 in NerdCrafting, Our Life

So we have a favorite White Elephant that we go to every year, hosted by one of our buddies from college. It’s a white elephant exchange in that it follows the traditional rules for the exchanging gifts, but the gifts are a little different…I’m told that the name White Elephant for gift exchanges stems from […]

How to Make Zelda Wedding Signs

Posted By The Mrs. on August 4, 2016 in NerdCrafting

When you have a wedding theme that is remotely Medieval/Renaissance you don’t want paper things looking crisp and clean. You want an old timey feel, and that means a lot of time aging paper for signs and other things. Originally I thought about painting the signs directly onto wood, and then I remembered what my handwriting looks […]

Bathroom Update Daenerys Targaryen

Posted By The Mrs. on July 20, 2016 in NerdCrafting, Our Life

Above you can see our current bathroom, the one I talked about updating in the previous post. (Pic is of course, pre me accidentally ripping the toilet holder out of the wall… >.< ) And it’s, y’know…fine. A little out of date, but most of the basics in it are good. I mean, most…a small […]



Our Castle

The Acquisition of a Castle

Posted By The Mrs. on July 6, 2016 in Our Life

So we’ve bought a house. Moved in a few months ago…and that’s the majority of the reason that I haven’t been posting much lately. Househunting was practically a hiatus on life. It had a lot of hope, and a bit of heartbreak too. We ended up with an amazing house, and I am so glad […]



Zelda Pot Craft Cover

Ocarina of Time Pot Replicas

Posted By The Mrs. on November 18, 2015 in NerdCrafting

The Zelda Pots craft was more time consuming than I expected(it took more than a day with drying time), but it turned out so darn cute and required basically no real skills, just a little imagination…the hardest part was resisting the temptation to smash them for rupees! Supplies Vases shaped sorta like the pots $1-$10 […]



Zelda Wedding

Our Zelda Themed Wedding

Posted By The Mrs. on November 5, 2015 in Our Life

Having a themed wedding was a ton of fun, and really helped with a lot of decisions. I mean, there’s no need to debate whether or not you get to wear an elven tiara if the princess you’re modeling after has one! There is a lot of stress added too though. Some people want their weddings to be cartoony, […]

Zelda Wedding Bouquet

Posted By The Mrs. on November 1, 2015 in Our Life

For our wedding I’d initially planned on doing the floral arrangements, including the wedding bouquet, for totally DIY, and I’m really glad I didn’t. It would have been so hard to pull off at all, let alone get the amazing results that my florist did. She seriously nailed everything! There were a multitude of reasons […]



Pumpkins

Pumpkins!

Posted By The Mrs. on October 30, 2015 in NerdCrafting

So not exactly pinstrosity. But next year I’m definitely making Wynn do something way cooler, because the face he carved on his pumpkin required some skills I’m kinda sorta totally missing! I did the Oogie Boogie because I thought having a pattern would make my life easier. NOPE. Not with my pumpkin. Getting a flat […]
