A Christmas Story

“A Christmas Story” is a bit of an obsession for my step-father and me. For us, it’s not Christmas without Ralphie, Flick, Scut and the gang. Thank God TBS plays it 24 hours straight. But if they ever fail, we have our DVDs so we can make sure it’s always running in the background around Christmas. Right now there’s a leg lamp glowing in my window, licensed ornaments on our tree, a growing collection of Department 56 light up buildings and accessories on display and thanks to this week’s Iron Craft challenge, presents wrapped in “A Christmas Story” wrapping paper with matching labels! The only way I can outdo this next year is to find the box that contains my “A Christmas Story” apron and cookie cutters so that there is a plate of cookies shaped like the leg lamp next to the wrapped presents.

The labels.

A frase diz tudo:

“Se existe pode ser reproduzido no Minecraft” escreveu Patricia Hernandez do site Kotaku.

Chama-se Ironcraft e reproduz completamente os cenários e mechs de Titanfall. O gameplay está lá tudo, incluindo as limitações no número de robots por equipa e até o sistema de ejecção quando o robot está prestes a explodir.

Neste momento, Ironfall só tem o mapa “Rise” em modo attrition,…

Iron Craft 46 - Handmade Holiday

I have been participating in the Iron Craft challenge all year. This week, I created this stocking decoration out of felt using the Allsorts template I found last year (Note that they had a white background and red decorations. I wanted to do something different!). I used stiff felt for the background so it is more of a decoration, not an actual stocking you can put things in. This is a gift for our new home! I love Scandinavian crafts, and lately I’ve been having fun with the Dala Horse, so I threw this together. I used sticky white felt for the decorative pieces, but I may have to glue them down since you can see that they are shifting a little. Overall, I think it turned out pretty cute!
