Hi there! It’s felt like forever since I’ve last blogged, and has felt like an eternity since I’ve done anything crafty and nifty.

Rebel crocheters, striking forth from Etsy, have won the hearts of Star Wars fans in a reconciliation between a complete lack of functionality and mind-jarring cuteness. During the battle for yarn-related domination, lucyravenscar managed to create a crochet pattern to sell on Etsy, the Star Wars amigurumi, a by-all-rights useless crocheted figurine with enough adorableness to destroy an entire franchise. Pursued by a throng of online crafters, lucyravenscar races to online stardom aboard many fan sites, custodian of a method that can save her people from the boredom of crocheting yet another Pokemon figurine and thus restoring freedom to the craft community…
A couple months ago I came upon a tutorial on The Artful Parent for Kool-Aid Dyed Playsilks . I hadn’t really heard about playsilks before that but upon further investigation found out that they’re awesome. They can be pretty much anything your child wants them to be: capes, dresses, blankets, scenery, tents and the list goes on and on.
just in time — this year’s April Fool’s prank I dunno about you but between the Supreme Court ruling on health care reform, tax season and the debate on copyright issues all over Facebook and the blogosphere, I’m in need of a little levity. If you’re somewhat new to this blog, you may not realize that April Fool’s Day to our daughter ranks right [...]
