Tard the Grumpy Cat plush

I was a bad blogger and missed last week’s post. I failed to finish it before we left for a long-weekend vacation, and once away we didn’t have wireless, so it didn’t get posted from our vacation spot either. But that means that in place of what I was going to post last week (which […]


Tally’s tally for the July 6-8 weekend – Operation MAKE ALL THE THINGS

Recently on Twitter, a couple people brought up the idea of doing a post that sums up all the things I’ve made in a given period of time: “Tally’s tally” of crafts, as it were. While fun, I thought this might be a bit too much like bragging. “Look at all the stuff I made […]

bacon wristband

Welcome to my first posting of a MAN CRAFT! Having done a scientific online survey of a large number of randomly chosen males, I can state with certainty that most men are highly attracted to bacon in pretty much any form. Oh hell, I’m not an idiot. I knew that without conducting any kind of […]
