Bomb-Omb is done! :)

Feast your eyes! :) I knew I'd be using sparkly fun yarn for the fuse end since it added to what Bomb Omb is! :D I also used a separate gray yarn from the one I used to build up the top of his body because I thought it looked more like a winding fuse :) All in all I'm happy with how he turned out - hope you like him too! :D

Update: If you want to make your own Bomb Omb I wrote up the pattern - you can purchase it here.

Bomb-Omb in the process

Geeks & Nerds unite! To come up with adorable "real life" (tee hee) replicas of their favorite characters on the gaming screen!

Okay, so it's not a worldwide effort and while no one is really uniting to do this (lol) :D A friend of mine who proudly vouches for being a nerd said I should bring this guy into our reality... and so I am. :D

Here's the progress so far! I'm making up the pattern as I go.

here is what I'm aiming for...

Oh and I should say - my husband is a nerd too - nerds are hot :) lol :D Get yours today!

If you like Goomba - here's one I made too! :D

Must...Break...The Silence!

As some of you might know (or none of you know) last year at the end of August I started a new job and away went the focus or desire to blog... it's just sucked a lot of my time and energy :s.

Since there are a lot of things regarding the house I want to catch you up on (and hope to in time) I have to share some other, nonhouse things along the way... I'm in blog recovery lol er, something like that O.o.

Alright - so on lunch break today I'm perusing the arts& crafts section of craigslist and find a listing for Magic Ring Pom-Pon. No, this is not a misspelling, maybe it's just the old school way of writing Pom-Pom. Kind of like how old worlde english favor & color were spelled with U's = colour, favour. You get the idea.

I got curious.. to google I go to find out what the heck you can make with a pom-pon magic ring. After all, the picture was also showing, aside from pom-pons, rugs of all things - I scratched my head.

After a few attempts via web and images I found a blog (yay!) and have to share the link with you to this witty, hilariously funny blogger. I have to figure out how to follow them yet since I can't simply click "follow" BUT - if you figure it out, lemme know! :D

Without further ado - visit this link for a craft laugh break. Oh so funny... Hahahaha - oh, oh and it's fittingly titled Pompon Therapy. Note the spelling ;)
