Coming out of hibernation
It’s been a long time since I last posted, I know. I originally started writing a post about two months ago, focusing on how we’re a year into the pandemic now and how things were going. However, I never actually finished that post. It just sat here in my drafts, gathering dust for two months. I […]
I am still alive, I swear.
Yeah, my usual “post-Gen Con posting slump” that typically only lasts a month or so? This year, it apparently stretched into a four-month posting hiatus. That’s 2020 for you, I guess. I thought it might not be a bad idea to at least post something to say I’m alive, and I’m hanging in there. I’ve […]
The social distancing nerd: two months later
Oh, how optimistic I was two months ago when I wrote that post about what I’ve been doing, and how I was weathering the COVID-19 stay-at-home order. I thought, “surely I can write more blog posts. I’m home all the time and have no excuses!” I was wrong. I underestimated just how much energy I […]
Nerdy tidbits: June 2019
Well, we’re almost at the end of June, which means it’s time for another edition of Nerdy Tidbits! Read on to learn more about the fun nerdy tidbits of June 2019 that didn’t quite fit into their own posts! A crafty and nerdy tidbit: Picking up cross stitching again Oh, cross stitch. Back when I […]
Little things that make me happy
Work has been crazy lately, hence the lack of a post last week. Until I’ve got some bandwidth to come up with a more interesting post, here’s a little bit of something to tide you over: some little things that have made me happy over the past few weeks. First off: I found Star vs. […]
It’s a cat picture kind of week.
I totally had all these grand plans to finally put together the Toothless shawl I’ve been working on for… well, I can’t remember how long now, and write up a post about it. But then I ended up having to present at a conference, and I’m still trying to kick this stupid cold I’ve been […]
The State of the Nerd, winter 2019
I’ll be honest, I hit a bit of writer’s block with the original post I was writing for this week – and between that and the cold I’ve been battling, it’s been a bit of a rough week. I’ve managed to get something posted every week so far this year, though, and I really don’t […]
Happy 6th birthday, The Crafty Nerd!
Wow, has it really been six whole years since I started the blog? Wow, time sure does fly when you’re blogging. That’s right, six years ago I posted my first post here, and started what would ultimately end up being a pretty big chunk of my life. Heck, if it weren’t for the blog, I probably […]
Projects I’m working on – the winter edition
I recently had the idea to write about the craft projects I’m working on – not just to show them off, but for other reasons as well. I’m thinking sharing what I’m working on might help keep me accountable, and remind me “hey, I should probably finish these things at some point”. Plus, it’ll be […]
2018: the year in review
We’ll just pretend that in the featured image, Steven and friends are getting ready for the new year, haha. It’s December! (Well, it has been for two weeks now, actually.) And with the end of the year nearly here, I figured there’s no better time to look back at some of the more exciting things […]
