Harry Potter-Inspired Beer Sweater :: Free Crochet Pattern

It's Harry Potter month for us and I am kicking off my tutorials with this cutiepie! Why beer sweater, you ask?  Did you know that the word "koozie" is copyrighted...along with any derivative of it?  I just thought it was a word for the thing that goes around your...

Harry Potter Wall Art (Free Silhouette File!)

The Harry Potter bug has hit our house (several years later than everyone else)!  While walking through JoAnn Fabrics the other day, Louis really wanted to buy this 15 x 30 canvas.  Like reeeeeeeally wanted it.  He had no plans, really.  Just wanted to make something...

Thirty-One and Still a Nerdy One…

Thirty-One and Still a Nerdy One…

Today is my 31st birthday!  Whoop whoop! I know some women hate turning another year older.  And admitting their real age.  But honestly, I have no issues with it.  I am who I am.  We can't stop Father Time, so we might as well party on with him! Though, I'll admit...

Ky-Lou Ren :: Crafting Con

Ky-Lou Ren :: Crafting Con

One of my favorite discoveries was a group called "Crafting Con".  Which consists of (mostly) women who are incredibly talented in sewing/creating AND are huge fangirls of all the nerdy things that I love.  It's the best. Along with Crafting Con comes a friendly...

Steel City Comic Con 2016

Steel City Comic Con 2016

My Momma's Christmas gift to Bennett this year was tickets to the Steel City Comic Con.  Somehow, in all of our epic nerdiness, this family has never attended a Comic Con before.  I'm so glad that Mom sent us there!  It was SO MUCH FUN. We didn't know exactly what to...

Love of Legends Tour :: Louis the Dragon

Love of Legends Tour :: Louis the Dragon

The brains and beauties behind Crafting Con and Phat Quarters put out a call for a creative blogging tour that I could not say no to.  We were told to pick a legendary creature (think unicorn, dragon, mermaid, sasquatch, etc) and make something inspired by said...

#BennettsThirsty30

Let's just start out by saying that I had a major wife fail and didn't take hardly any pictures on Friday, during Bennett's birthday party.  In fairness, it was jam packed full of people that I wanted to chat with...rather than take photos and be antisocial.  Plus,...

Boba Fett Button Art

Boba Fett Button Art

After having a major crafting fail...I was desperate to redeem myself.  Like, I was in a MAJOR funk.  It had to be another button project and it had to be good.  And what's better than Star Wars and crafts combined into one?  Nothing.  Nothing is better. I glued about...

Halloween 2015.

Halloween 2015.

Trick or treating was a success this year for sure.  Louis had a blast, we got to dress up and totally nerd it out with Star Wars costumes, and hang out with two of our favorite families while doing it.  Louis kept complaining that his candy bag was too heavy...which...

Boo at the Zoo 2015.

Boo at the Zoo 2015.

Last night we hit up the local zoo for another round of "Boo at the Zoo".  It's a chance for kids to wear their costumes, "trick or treat" at stations around the zoo, and be able to go on a haunted train ride. Plus, any chance for Louis to get another wear out of his...
