River Song Appreciation Day!

HAPPY RIVER SONG DAY!

dcwhoriverbow

Ok, I’m about three days late for posting this and be prepared, it’s about to get a tad nerdy up in this joint.

River Song is a character played by Alex Kingston on “Doctor Who”. Again, if you have never seen “Doctor Who” and are into the nerdy, space travel, british comedies then WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU!? Seriously, you need to GET ON THAT. Those of you who know of River Song and know me, know that I adore the hell out of that character/woman and is pretty much one of my goals in life to be as badass as she.

dcwhoomgFriday was the 5th Anniversary of River’s first appearance in “Silence in the Library”, an episode from season 4 with David Tennant and Catherine Tate as his “I’ll dish your sassiness right back to you” companion, Donna Noble (another favorite of mine!). Please be prepared if you watch this episode and it’s companion (ha, see what I did there?) because there are a lot of emotions. Seriously. Good luck with that.

Also, can we talk about the season finale?! Let’s talk about how I cried rivers of tears (ha, bah-dum-dum-psh!)… let’s talk about how I walked out into my living room and the conversation went like the following:

Dad: So, how was Doctor-

Me: OMG! *bursts into tears* RIVER! MY FEELS! RIVER AND THE DOCTOR! I JUST… I CAN’T! RIVER! NOOOOO! MY FEELS!

dcwhoriverspoilers

Anywho, I decided that since I couldn’t cosplay to work (even though it was casual Friday) and it would probably be highly inappropriate to walk around calling everyone “Sweetie”, or trying to use my sonic screwdriver when my stupid computer wouldn’t work (I actually have¬†two: River and the 10th’s) and saying “Spoilers” anytime anyone asked me where one of my reports were¬†(Seriously, I saw a very pink psychic paper in my future if I ever tried to pull this kind of shenanigan)… all of these under consideration, I decided to marathon River’s episodes and make a lovely decor piece in honor of our favorite woman with the funny name and the fantastic space hair.

DIY: Iron-On Vinyl Shirt

vinylshirt

First off, I’ve extended my give-away! It will now be up through June 21st: The First Day of Summer! (Ah em, are you catching the clue here? No, seriously, it’s going to be a fun give-away. ūüôā

I was out of work sick yesterday and realized that in the midst of making all of these t-shirts, I haven’t made one for myself in a while! I had this design up for weeks in my Cricut Craft Room, but just hadn’t gotten around to making the shirt!

DIY: Family Canvas Wall Decor

Happy Wednesday!

I’ve been a blogging slacker for the past few weeks. A few weeks ago I took a “staycation” and decided I was going to focus on me, myself and I. Unfortunately, the social media blogette¬†side of me also went on holiday and thus, the updates having been occurring regularly: including “Treasury Tuesday”, etc.

So, I missed Mother’s Day a few weeks ago. But I hope you all had a GREAT Mother’s Day and enjoyed it with your kids, mothers, wives, sisters, etc. After taking my nephew to get his driver’s license¬†that Friday, we all went out for celebratory froyo. My 5-year-old niece turned to my sister and said “Happy Mothers Day Mom!” and then turned to me and said “Happy Mothers Day Heather!” While I have not physically had children myself, I feel very protective and maternal towards my niece and nephew as well as our pup and all of my little craft projects. So I smiled really big and said “Thanks darlin!”

For my mother, I made a wall decoration that we’ve placed in the kitchen. It has one of my favorite quotes, that I think sums up our family pretty accurately. As she gave me my Cricut for my birthday, I wanted to use it to make her something she could see everyday as a reminder of:

  1. What an awesome daughter I am ūüėČ
  2. What a great family we are

We really are and it’s not to say that we haven’t had our ups and downs (and sometimes disownments) but that’s what makes our family so ridiculous and amazing. No matter the hardships, we’ve all stuck together.

In the great words of Caroline Manzo: LET ME TELL YOU-A SOMETHING ABOUT MY FAMILY! WE ARE THICK AS THIEVES.

It’s true.

Treasury Tuesday: It’s like you’re my mirror…

Ok, I have been obsessing over Justin Timberlakes new album for ages and can’t get this song out of my head. Today’s Treasury Tuesday comes from the inspiration behind the jam!

Check out my mirror creation: “‘Hello, Sweetie.’ Vinyl Mirror Decal”

You know I absolutely adore the pink mirror by AMirrorImage, love a good pop of color! I also love the bar style mirror by touchmeallover, what a great way to use wine corks!

Are you as obsessed with this album as I am? Be sure to check out the Etsy finds above!

DIY: Vinyl Mugs

I woke up quite a bit before my alarm this morning and was feeling very energized despite the lack of fitness this weekend (talk about a huge slacker). Perhaps it was the abundance of people I got to see this weekend that made me feel super chipper. I had quite a lot of fun seeing old friends, meeting new friends; celebrating birthdays and upcoming nuptials… and of course, doing a bit of crafting! The majority of my time currently is devoted to the following three things:

  1. Work
  2. Exercise
  3. Etsy

And not always in that order (but most of the time, yes). I haven’t had the chance to just do a craft for myself or even really just sleep. I took a few days off next week to knock out an array of appointments and take the time to just breathe, it’s amazing how sometimes one can just forget to do that, huh? Now, I’m feeling incredibly exhausted and dead to the world, the coffee is just not cutting it this morning.

Anyhoo, I’ve been doing a lot of mugs for the shop and wanted to finally just make one for myself.

A few weeks ago I received a mess of permanent vinyl and have just gotten around to being able to play with it!

The other day I decided my first project was to make a decal for my new water bottle that cost me a whole gold bar. Can someone please explain to me why they are so darn expensive these days? They’re water bottles for crying out loud!

I used a silver permanant vinyl with a curly H from Cricut’s “Quarter Note” cartridge and of course, a quatrefoil… #tsm

Tested it out at the gym: perfect!

I went over to my sorority sisters place yesterday to sit and craft. It’s been a while since we’ve had time to do so! Before, we used to sit in our apartment and craft on the regular, sticking in “Legally Blonde” and filling the living room with paint fumes and the smells of warm brownies. It was nice to be able to sit, chat, craft and catch up!

The quote is one of my favorites from Vincent van Gogh:

“I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of the stars makes me dream.”

I should have made the text a tad bit smaller, but I wasn’t sure how the Cricut¬†would do with cutting smaller letters. I see with the ones at the bottom that it doesn’t do too bad! Next time, I will have to keep that in mind, I’m not a total fan of how large it is, but I love it otherwise! The stars were easy to apply without any vinyl transfer, but in order to keep the text together and cohesive, I used it for that. The only issue I had was the fact that the mug wasn’t a flat surface, so the bottom text got a little wonky due to the mug’s curvature.

Either way, there are so many other ideas for the future products with vinyl! Can’t wait do some more of those!
