My Nerdy Workspace

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 into my office.  You can already tell it’s quite an eclectic nerd-splosion, from the Princess Peach backpack and change purse hanging on the doorknob to Pinkie Pie and Rainbow Dash hanging out on the pillows on the bed.

The Crafty Nerd Plays Video Games: Street Fighter II Turbo

2013-04-20 17.16.49I 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 Fighter II – it’s one of my favorite games, and after watching Wreck-It Ralph so many times, I’d been itching to play for quite some time. So, come sit with me on my living room floor as I play Street Fighter!

I’m a writer over at Geek Crafts!

This is a short little update for you all – I just want to let everyone know I’m writing over at Geek Crafts!  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 Nerd’s Facebook page – so if you’re not already a fan, go hit the Like button in my Facebook widget over on the right side of the page!

 

Camp NaNoWriMo: Noveling when when it’s bright out!

For those of you who’ve known me for a while, you know that every November I drop everything and attempt to write a novel as part of National Novel Writing Month.  There’s something about spending the long, dark, chilly nights curled up in my computer chair, typing furiously to capture every detail of a story before the plot bunnies interfere.  Some years turned out better than others, especially 2010 and 2011, where I actually hit my word-count goals (and, in the case of 2010, blew past them!), but no matter what the word counts, no matter how early I ran out of steam, I enjoyed myself.  I’m ridiculously passionate about NaNoWriMo.  Which is why, this year, I find myself checking into a cabin at Camp NaNoWriMo.

Enter the crafty nerd.

Well, here goes nothing.

I’m going to make a legitimate try at doing a real blog!  With a focus!  This should be… interesting.

After following Jen at EPBOT for quite some time now, I thought to myself, “Hey, how come I don’t run a blog similar to hers?” And some of you may say, why the heck should you do a blog like hers?  She’s already done it!  Well, while we both do nerdy and crafty things (and often combine the two), our nerddoms don’t exactly overlap.  She’s huge into steampunk, for example, while I’m really big into My Little Ponies.  She does a lot of big DIY projects, while I make a lot of little plushies and knit projects.  So, that’s my reasoning for doing a nerdy crafting blog – because it’ll be a unique nerdy crafting blog.   It’ll be MY nerdy crafting blog.  With a little bit of random life stuff tossed in here and there.

So, welcome!  I’m going to try to post once a week, if not more – and I’d love it if people would comment, stir up some activity, stuff like that.  I might host the occasional contest, I might post some free goodies, who knows.  I really do love blogging, and I want to share all the awesome stuff I make with the world, and inspire someone to make their own awesome stuff, or maybe even blog – just like Jen inspired me to do!
