It's chaos and mayhem in casa Blaize at the moment, but the good kind - lots of redecorating and reorganizing, and in some cases just plain organizing of things that were never actually organized in the first place. And we have a new car, which facilitates lots of organizing but is also scary because I haven't driven in about eight years and need to relearn. But more importantly a car means a trip to Hobbycraft and buying supplies for the next few ridiculous craft projects, which is very exciting!

But until those crazy crafts are completed, have a post with some bags. These are a few of the pay it forward gifts I made last year, and there's some more stuff to come just as soon as I work through the backlog of unposted crafts!

Look at me, posting two days in a row. It's shocking, I know. And I will probably post tomorrow as well, because my Arthur cross stitch is framed and looking lovely and i can't wait to share him with the interwebs!

But first, I wanted to share a few Christmas pressies I got, because they are awesome and need to to be shown off!

Further proof of my mama's geekdom )

And in yet more I-am-so-showing-off news, the super (soo-pa-paa!) [ profile] rooferrocks (roo-fa-faa!) made me my very own Tardis journal just like River Song's. And it is wonderful! Lookit!

Firstly, my thoughts go out to everyone affected by the earthquakes and tsunami in Japan and the Pacific basin. I hope that all my flisties in the region, and all your loved ones, are safe and sound. I haven't seen a fandom auction and/or help resource go up yet but I'm sure there will be something soon. Right now the only helpful links I can think to post are Google's People Finder and the Red Cross Blog.

ETA: That link is for the UK arm of the Red Cross, try the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies site.

Son of ETA: Fandom is awesome - hie thee hence to [ profile] help_japan 

This sentence is an abrupt-change-of-tone buffer.

So, today's crafty post. I had this floor lamp that I loved very much, but some of the panels had been damaged over the years, so I decided to cut all the panels out, replace the ones that were too badly ripped and salvage the ones that weren't. Maybe I'd add some small embellishments, I thought. Then it turned into an epic stencil project that took up all my crafts-for-me time throughout January and February. And then I discovered that it's really hard to take pictures of an item that is itself a source of light. Especially since when the lamp is off (or I tried to use the camera flash) you can't actually see any of the designs - it just looks like panels of plain paper. So this post has taken quite a while to get organised!

Because it's for me, it's a bit messy in places and I tried some techniques that I won't try again. But I actually quite like how it turned out, overall. I'm definitely going to try to use some of these ideas again for smaller table lamps I can sell, but that'll require quite a lot of research and planning!

The biggest problem I had with taking photos was the difference between the Bat signal panels and the other ones. With the naked eye there isn't as big a contrast as there are in these pics.


Loads more pics under the cut! )

I have a terrible tendency to pick up a few extra t-shirts that grab my fancy whenever I'm getting something for a custom order. So a couple of weeks ago I rounded up all the random shirts piling up around my craft room and decided to come up with something simple but cool to actually use them for.

And thus this happened:


Twenty-three (!!) individual photos under the cut.

As always, there are more photos at my Flickr album here. And since I'm being particularly shameless today I'll point out that most of these t-shirts will be available to buy from my etsy shop here. Custom orders are always appreciated - if you want something uniquely geeky to you, I'm happy to make it!

And some more Christmas pressies, this time for adult sized humans.

We'll start with my favourite of the bunch:


Star Wars, Leverage, Wolverine, Audrey Hepburn and random animal t-shirts )

Have been on quite the T-shirt making binge of late. Pictures of Star Trek, Star Wars, Buffy, Batman and Doctor Who inspired craftyness await you after the cut.

Yet more badges to show off. Have had a slightly distracting weekend* and didn't remember to take my daily photos of the enterprise cross stitch but shall update on its progress soon. This edition of badge madness features Pac Man, Batman, the Matrix, Star Wars and general internet geekery.

*My distractions this weekend included the Good (seeing Take That in concert twice, which was ridiculously exciting and included not just pretty men but also many acrobats and a giant mechanical elephant), the Bad (losing the internet for four days and our electricity for four hours) and the Ugly (I saw Take That at Hampden with 55,000 people, many of whom were very drunk and living down to all of Glasgow's stereotypes).

Many, many pics behind the cut )

Photos of the completed Petrelli cross stitch are on their way, honest. January and I have never been friends, but using this blog as a means of accountability worked through the making of the project, so I'm hoping saying that will work for getting Ms Procrastination here to actually post the gorram thing.

In the meantime... badgepalooza! You were warned that this would happen. Badgemaking is very moreish indeed.

A preview of just some of the many 25mm, 38mm and 58mm cross-stitched badges that await under the cut.
