You may have seen some more Steven Universe images creeping into my blog as I’ve been posting (infrequently as its been, I know) – and there’s a reason for that, friends. I am ABSOLUTELY OBSESSED WITH THIS SHOW. I haven’t been this enthralled with a show since I discovered Sailor Moon back in 1997, you guys. I love the characters, I love the overwhelmingly female-positive vibe of the show, I love … Read more Steven Universe: my new obsession
I promise. I’m not dead. I’m just swamped with work and getting used to the switch over to full-time work. There will be new posts soon, I promise! Bear with me while I get things sorted out. 🙂
March seems to be the month of the year where all of my favorite authors conspire against my wallet and release books from their ongoing (or new, as in the case with one author I adore) series. And this year is no exception – I have not one, not two, but three books from authors I enjoy coming out this month. The first one is Vision in Silver, by Anne Bishop, which … Read more March Book Madness! (and a contest!)
I can’t believe it’s been two whole years since I started The Crafty Nerd! In those two years, I’ve done a lot of awesome stuff… I’ve been to GenCon twice, checked out Indiana Comic Con and Indy PopCon, and debuted two different versions of my Steampunk outfit, three varieties of Pinkie Pie, and a gender-bending Fourth Doctor cosplay! I’ve completed a bunch of different craft projects, and even started making counted … Read more Two years of The Crafty Nerd!
Just in time for the holidays, Ross and I both caught an epic cold. We both spent the entire week flopped onto flat comfy surfaces in various spots in the house, watched a lot of TV, and slept a lot. And I did a lot of something that I haven’t done in a very long time. Yup, The Crafty Nerd finally got her craft on. And gosh, did I miss it. First … Read more Distracting myself
I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve been ridiculously busy lately. Between work and classes and craft projects, I barely find time to just sit around and indulge in my nerdier (and craftier) side. However! I’ve found ways to get around that, and work a little more nerdiness into my day in little ways. Here’s a random assortment of how I make my day a little nerdier, in no particular … Read more Make your day a little nerdier
Here’s a little blog that might be way too nerdy for most – but I wanted to share it here, because XML makes me happy. 😀 Crossposted from here. I’ll admit, when I took a look at the title for one of our readings for this week, “A Gentle Introduction to XML”, I scoffed a little. I’ve done work with XML, quite a bit of it. Heck, I’m even teaching two … Read more The Digital Humanities Nerd: A Love Letter to XML
I’m working on a much more interesting and much larger post – on my recent trip to Chicago, no less, and about music nerdery – but until that’s all ready, I’ve got a tiny little tidbit for those of you who love hearing about my scooter (or who’re just curious about her). I’ve started up a little Blogger blog, Go Scooterlou!, that focuses on stories about my scooter, pictures of her … Read more New side blog: Go Scooterlou!
Yep, that’s right! The Crafty Nerd reached 42 likes (and a little bit beyond that) on the Facebook page today! I’m super excited about this. 42 is an awesome number, as all you nerds know. 🙂 If you haven’t checked out my Facebook page yet, why not do it now?
I’ve been pondering posting about this for a long time, and with my home office finally getting cleaned up over the weekend, I figured it might be a good time to show off my nerdy workspace. (I also sometimes refer to it as the nerdy girl-cave, heheh.) I will warn you now – my workspace is incredibly cluttered, and ridiculously pony-covered. Proceed with caution. 🙂 Here’s the view upon heading … Read more My Nerdy Workspace
I finally got around to hooking up the Super Nintendo I bought before Christmas. I know, I know, I should have hooked it up long before, but I’ve been way too busy lately. I did some living room rearranging this past weekend, though, and figured, why not hook it up while I’m in the process of hooking everything else up? Once I got it all hooked up, I popped in Street … Read more The Crafty Nerd Plays Video Games: Street Fighter II Turbo

I’ll be posting a new geeky craft every Sunday afternoon, and today I’ve posted my introduction. (I go by Beth Lynn over there, since there’s already a Beth there!) I hope everyone’ll go check it out! I’ll be sharing links to my Sunday posts over on The Crafty … Read more I’m a writer over at Geek Crafts!
