“The Burrow” inspired Gingerbread House

I know Christmas was weeks ago, but Craftster’s Monthly challenge (due by today) was a Gingerbread House Contest. Among the unbelievable entries was mezcraft‘s Harry Potter inspired Burrow. She used two different gingerbread recipes to get different colored gingerbread, plus candy, cinnamon sticks, and cereal for the thatched roof. She even added the Weasley sweaters on a laundry line outside! I can’t get over how BIG it is, and how much detail she packed on (I still can’t believe it’s a gingerbread house)! Voting for the challenge starts tomorrow, and I can’t wait to see how she does!

Mortal Kombat felt dolls

Mortal Kombat felt dolls Mortal Kombat felt dolls

Terri, b/k/a etsy seller TerriFluffShop, is selling these awesome felt dolls of Mortal Kombat 3 characters Sindel and Cyrax . Although these characters are a little more obscure than your Johnny Cages and Liu Kangs, they are really well done. Just check out all the details on Cyrax’s armor! He even comes with his signature green web! (Or is it a net? I say it’s a web…)
If MK plushies are something you think you need, but maybe not in the form of Sindel or Cyrax, Terri says she can do other characters upon request! I would love a lil fuzzy Rayden or Scorpion in my craft room…

And check here to see Sindel’s notoriously terrible appearance in Mortal Kombat Annihilation (the second MK movie).

Microbial Friends Magnets

It took me a little while, but I finally figured out what your fridge is missing, an amoeba and a paramecium.

These adorable magents come together and are bright and fun and begging to be on a magnetic surface of yours.

Be sure to check out What.No Mints? for even more fun microbial friends!

Polymer Clay Nerdy Robot

"Polymer Clay Nerdy Robot"I am absolutely smitten with the polymer clay robots that Lisastarchild hand sculpts, especially this fabulous nerd love one! I came across her SleepyRobot13 shop on Etsy and fell in love. Her robot creations are charming and have wide ranging appeal to all sorts of nerds and geeks. She makes everything from a Batman Robot to a Zombie Robot. The Super Hero Robot (with glow-in-the-dark underpants!) and the 3-D Movie Robot are also adorable!
