Through the Looking Glass Necklace

Through the Looking Glass NecklaceLewis Carroll’s Alice has always been one of my favorite literary heroines. She’s bold, bright, and bewildering all at once.

This necklace portrays Alice and the titular looking glass in beautiful brushed steel.

Both elegant and whimsical, it’s a “grown-up” way to show your continued love of the girl who made her way through Wonderland and beyond.

Made by the talented mother-and-daughter team of Penny and Nikki, this (and other Alice-themed creations) is available in their Etsy shop, Untamed Menagerie.

Cthulhu Tea Cozy

Crafty Butterfly made this cute horrifying Cthulhu teapot cozy for her husband. He has a teapot at work, where he does “Geeky Stuff…should be a big hit and earn him some more geek cred”. Looks perfect to me! She combined two patterns to make it (which are here and here), making a few alterations herself.

Reader Submission! Wookie Wear – Chewbacca baby Mitts and Booties!

SO, last week we had international Star Wars Day, which was celebrated on a host of different blogs across the galaxy.

Cheryl from Sew Can Do got in on the action too and brought her geek-crafting skills to the party. Check out these ADORABLE Chewbacca baby Mitts and Booties!! She knew that we’d be interested in seeing her work, so she hit us up on our Submit a Geek Craft page.

On another note: Small world, a friend of mine bought me a baby Yoda Hat from Cheryl’s Etsy Shop, The Green Hedgehog, in preparation for my growing tummy monster. I’m also really lucky to have recently received an awesome amigurumi Wampa from Craftster user SilentBlair in the “One Tiny Thing, Star Wars Swap”. Star Wars Babies FTW!!

DIY Angry Birds magnet game

Because it is the #1 paid app in both the U.S. and the U.K., perhaps I should feel some geek-shame in admitting that I’ve never played Angry Birds, and in fact don’t even have it installed on my iPhone. I have only a few computer game addictions (my family calls me the Great White Chuzzle Hunter), and Angry Birds hasn’t made the list — yet.

But I know both my son and husband really love it, along with scores of others, including Punk Projects blogger Katie. She created a set of Angry Birds magnets, and kindly put together a super easy tutorial so you too can have your own set.

You could of course adapt this idea to pretty much any platform game, such as Mario Brothers or Donkey Kong.
