Miniaturist, Artist, Crazy Cat Lady: Gloria Joe from Lonely Cloud

At Ai-Kon 2017 I was super pleased to come across some beautiful enough to eat miniature food, prepared by the lovely and local Gloria Joe under her biz Lonely Cloud!  Seriously, it all looks absolutely delicious and perfect for dolls! I just had to share with you! My dollie Dana particularly loved the ramen! I do love her Instagram account, and you can find more of her creativity and handiwork in various forms at: B L O G ☾ http://www.lonely-cloud.tumblr.com F A C E B O O K ☾ http://www.facebook.com/gloriajoeart E T S Y S H O P ☾ http://www.gloriajoeart.etsy.com I N...

What's in the Cabinet at your Local Geek Shop?

 As a local maker, a few local shops carry some of my handmade geekery. But until now I hadn't really stopped to take a look at what else is in the cabinet beside my goods... This week I ventured out into gloominess and rain heading out to drop off a fresh supply of my handmade geekery to one of my favourite local geek spaces, A Muse N Games, located at 1783 Portage Ave,in Winnipeg, MB. They have SO MANY TABLETOP GAMES!! Just one of the many well-stocked walls. After donning my official "lady geek business cap" with Scotia, she is one of...

Forging a New Plush Weapon...Buffy's Scythe

When I attended the "Once More with Horrible Feeling Sing-Along" event last year, I thought more Whedonesque fun was impossible, but I was wrong dear friends... Big Buffy hugs to the organizer Kendra for prompting the creation of this fine Scythe replica in fabric and stuffing for said event's prize giving! And, of course, as a new plush weapon in my shop for all the fans of the now 20-year-old, but still AMAZING, series! After the art was done and the test prints came back looking great, and I shared them secretly with Kendra and we were so excited but...

How I Keep it Geeky AND Green while Crafting!

Earth Day How to Recycling Reuse Upcycling

How I Keep it Geeky AND Green while Crafting!

HAPPY EARTH DAY EARTHLINGS! As another Earth Day goes by it always leaves me both happy and sad...happy because my older relatives have finally taken to recycling, sad because couldn't we be doing more?!? Behind the Thrifting Doors I did get to work on the production lines at a large chain of thrift stores for awhile, and man, it sure made me realize that as I don't have an issue with hand-me-downs, I'm just fine to never shop at a big box store again! I know some people who would never buy a kettle or shoes or underwear from a thrift...
