“Craft Shop” – a rap parody

The following is a parody of Macklemore’s song “Thrift Shop.” I wrote the parody version for kicks a few weeks back, and then performed it at Desert Bus for Hope 8 (a massive annual online charity event I help organize and run). You can watch that performance here. Good grief I was so nervous – […]


plush bus

I get commissions for all kinds of different things and all kinds of different reasons. Things from “My boyfriend loves this character” to “I’d like to give her a custom plush of her forum avatar” and “The baby needs a sun hat for summer anyway, why not have an awesome R2D2 one” have all come […]

Child’s Play charity dinner dress and Piranha Plant bouquet

But I fell behind on tutorial-writing. I’ve also […]

Desert Bus for Hope 5 – how to lose a week of sleep in the best way possible

There will be no tutorial this week, as I have been helping to run a 24-hour a day marathon fundraiser since 6pm on Friday, Nov. 18, and crafting has, this very once, taken a back seat. I would, however, like to take a moment to reflect on the week. Desert Bus is without a doubt […]
