It’s Thursday and Thrilled time, and boy am I thrilled for some stuff this week! I’ve been in a suuuuper crafty mood lately. Last weekend was my Trekkie Trek and brunch for my local chapter of Geek Girl Brunch. As I did not want to run in costume I came up with a few small things to honor the occasion:
A tank top that I carved the Starfleet Insignia into and made into a stamp.
And some hair clips a fellow officer and I glued together to give to the brunchettes and interested brunchettes. I am so proud of them and the fact that they were a huge hit! Now, I’m itching for my next craft project. Read More
This post is a LOT longer than I was anticipating…
Salt Lake Comic Con does two conventions a year. The main one usually takes place in September and is bigger and more intense. Whereas Fan Xperience usually takes place in the beginning of the year and more like “Comic Con Lite”. When people who have never been to a convention ask me which one to go to, I tell them FanX. It’s a bit less of an shock to the system.
This year during FanX was pretty light. I didn’t really plan anything and just kind of let things happen. Luckily, two of my very good friends were willing to pal around with me the whole time. There was two things I wanted to accomplish this con: Get through my photo-ops without pulling out my hair, and hit my 10,000 steps a day on my FitBit. Read More
I have been in a mega crafting mood lately. So I decide to finally sit down and finish a project I had been wanting to finish for a while now. After spending last weekend with my mom and aunt going on a shop hop to different quilting stores I finally found the right fabrics for what I was needing. It seemed like fate. I was finally able to work on my purse, inspired by the Supernatural Impala. Read More
It’s Thursday and Thrilled time again, but guys, Thursdays are HARD!! However, tomorrow I’m going to go see Chris D’Elia with the husband and I am STOKED! I’m so excited to sit at a comedy club and just laugh! If you haven’t heard his comedy, you can watch his recent stand up show on Netflix now. Other than that, here is what I’ve been thrilled about lately.
A thing I’ve noticed about being a crafter is that some days you just get the itch to make something. You don’t have anything particular in mind, but you want to make SOMETHING.

I just signed up for a 5k.
A Harry Potter Themed, charity benefiting 5k. As in you can run, walk or FLY in this 5k. There are going to be people running with brooms between their legs!!!
I haven’t run/walked a 5k in about 3 years. In an effort to try and convince myself that I can indeed get through this without passing out, I decided to make some nerdy workout shirts to give me some inspiration. After looking online and realizing that cute, nerdy tanks were a bit out of my price range I decided I would just take some of my husbands shirts that he doesn’t wear anymore, and repurpose them.
