Hope this makes you smile as much as I am right now. Good work, everyone.
Ooh, you guys, I have so many crafty things I want to do, and no time to do them! So instead, I'll just show you three of my recent favorites, so you can all drool and dream with me.
First, a fun modern heart light:
Next, a simple but stunning lamp mod:
This is a $7 lamp from Ikea, so again, a super cheap project. Plus, who doesn't have old negatives lying around? (Just don't destroy anything important!)
And finally, Allison of Mod Mischief made this fantastic Valentine's gift for her hubby:
So, guys, see anything you want to try? Personally I plan to make them all, it's just a matter of figuring out in what order! The next CW book is due in just four weeks, though, plus John and I are finishing up on the largest house renovation we've ever done, so things are a bit hectic over here. We'll just have to see how much craft time I can squeeze in between now and Valentines. :)
In the mean time, if you do try one of these projects, be sure to send me pictures!

Ok, geek guys and girls, I have a mission for you!
Actually, this mission comes from another Jen, who is turning a yucky situation into a show-off-her-amazingly-bad-ass-geekery situation. To put a finer point on it: Jen just found out she has cancer.
But - BUT - in her own words, "Don't worry, it's Hodgkins - the most curable wimpy cancer and I shall be triumphant in my whomping of it."
Triumphant whomping! Yes!
Jen goes on, "But, I will lose my hair. So, I am on a mission to find geekie nerdtastic beanies and bandannas to cover my soon to be chrome-dome."
What's that I smell? A SHOPPING ASSIGNMENT?!?
Ahem. Sorry. Please, Jen, do go on.
"What I need are links to said beanies and bandannas. Yes, links. I don't expect (or want) people I don't know to buy me stuff. I'm financially solvent and have good insurance (thank the cosmic muffin). I just need help with the searchin' and the findin' so I can get to buyin'."
Oooh, now this is my kind of mission, guys. C'mon, GEEKY SHOPPING?
So, to get us started, I did a quick search of my own. My first find came from Great White Snark, who, ok, was making fun of it, but for those into Pokemon this beanie is actually really cool:
Actually, I'm not even into Pokemon, and I would still wear this. Totes adorbz!
(Did I say that right? Still workin' on my groovy/rad/hip lingo.)
$55 on KnitLush
A little pricey, perhaps, but that detail looks well worth it.
Or how about some Hello Kitty?
$42.95 at tinytangerines, which also has adorable owl and cupcake designs!
Plus, most of these look to be selling in the $10 range. Not bad!
