Star Wars Stormtrooper Mug

stormtrooper mugBe an undercover office geek with this sleek, striking mug featuring Star Wars’ iconic Stormtrooper mask.

Handmade by Etsy’s LennyMud, this mug shows your geek stripes without completely compromising your “professional” alter-ego. (Because you know your boss will ask you to fix the computers if she suspects that you may be remotely nerdy.)

For those of you working in more fun-loving places, LennyMud also has numerous colorful beverage-toting options, from a cheery Wonder Woman to his-and-hers Frankenstein’s monster and bride mugs.

Mario Mushroom Cushion

There are lots of Mario Mushroom pillows out there. Fleece plush ones, quilted ones, and of course, my favourite, Tunisian crochet ones. DeviantArt user AKRY has shared their knitted Mario Mushroom fan art cushion. This little pillow makes me think of all the little pillows I could make and place around my house strategically. Okay, I just want to be able to throw a green one at my hubby and then tell him “1UP!” I just won’t make any purple ones to get thrown back at me. If you lack the time or skills (or pattern) to make your own fan art pillows stop by knittedlove’s Etsy and buy the perfect cushion for your Beaded Mushroom Pin!

Cryptid Valentines!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

SpookyPooky at Craftster has given us all a wonderful Valentine’s Day gift: printable Cryptid Valentines! She’s letting everyone use the designs for free too: “It is hard to find unique Valentine cards that nobody else is giving out already!” These are the greatest Valentine’s card ever! You have four choices: the Yeti, Bigfoot, Nessie (my fav), or Cthulhu.

These are SpookyPooky‘s designs, which she has shown off before. She has a yeti contest going on at her blog, which also has a bigger, easier to print version of the valentines.

Binary Scarf

The Lady Cartoonist (Meredeth Scheff) decided to make a new scarf each day of January. They’re all really unique and different, but I felt that the one she made for January 1 was the geekiest. She says it best:

“With this first one I wanted to have a binary themed scarf that incorporated the date (01/01/11) as well as the scarf number (01). Since that really wasn’t enough to fill a scarf, I decided to make it spell out ’scarf’ in binary, and highlight out of those numbers the date and scarf number. I had the colors be the scheme of an old computer screen, tan outside (the monitor frame) and green/lighter green for the monitor itself.”

Check out some of her other scarves as well! (My favorite one is the Lucha Libre.)
