Sailor Moon Day is coming!

International Sailor Moon Day is fast approaching and I am donating a Bow 3DS case to the cosplay contest. I’m also creating some bracelets and charms – here are a few examples of some of the pieces I made. What do you guys think? Enough moon power to get you hyped for the event?

We finally have an Etsy store! Check out the main navigation above to browse our items! Hopefully we can add some more geeky and non-geeky items soon!


ALSO – if you add our Instagram and comment on the picture in the account, you could win this bracelet!Contest Time

Crochet – Hearts and Flowers

LINEcamera_share_2015-04-16-02-18-20

Yarn crafts are amazing and a lot of fun to make.  The craft I’m sharing today is great for decorating just about anything. Whether it be gifts, planners, room decor, or hair clips. These small little hearts and flowers are great for all your decorating needs.

Crocheting is something I’ve just recently started getting into. If you’re like me then knitting came much easier to learn. But crocheting allows you to do more shapes and so I’ve been trying my best to learn how to crochet. And I believe I’ve been able to pick it up now, due to the fact that my knitting skills have greatly improved since I first started knitting. I’m not a knitting master by any means, and crocheting is still a mystery to me but I’ve managed to crochet these little hearts and flowers, so these are great for novice yarn crafters or even novice crafters in general. A while back I showed the knitted hearts that I learn to make, but the crochet ones are flat and you can adjust the size depending on the size of hook you use.  These can also be used to make garlands that you can hang on the wall.  The paperclips are fairly new, I’ve noticed the planner community post something similar on instagram and had to try it out myself. I’ve kept one in my planner for the whole week and it hasn’t moved or gotten in the way. It’s just something small to decorate your planner pages and also be used as a paperclip. Bonus points!

Check back here for some more crochet projects, maybe next time I’ll even make some DIY tutorials and show you how I knit or crochet. Until next time…..

Thanks for reading and commenting.

Nintendo 3DS Cases

Nintendo 3DS Cases

A couple of years ago I started to design Nintendo 3DS custom cases for friends and family. Only recently did I start to show the cases on @mindspeaks‘ instagram account! Etsy store coming soon, more cases to be added along with cases for “NEW” 3DS XL!

That shiny SMASH Brothers case was designed and donated especially for Houston Gaymers to have as a prize for the amiibo SMASH tournament. I will be donating more custom cases to Houston Gaymers to use as prizes soon!

More fandoms in the work: Dr. Who, Monster Hunter the rest of the inner/outer sailor scouts and Animal Crossing cases! If you want a custom case, please comment or use the contact link to talk about a design with me!
