Exterminate! Extermin- Wait? What?

So, I have to post this because she's the one to blame... err... the one who encouraged me to start the blog. She and I are both avid Doctor Who fans and she made this AMAZING Dalek costume. What I like about her version of the costume is that it's girly, pretty, but still looks like a Dalek. I have about 95% of the materials sitting in my room, waiting for me to turn them into this. I'll post her tutorial and then when I actually make the costume, post if her tutorial is good or not. (I'm sure that it will be good though, because she's helped me with other things before).

You can find her blog and other amazing things at

The First Post

A few weeks ago a friend of mine had started an amazing blog ( If you're smart, you'll follow her) and suggested I do so. I have to say that my initial thought was "No way." There are plenty of blogs out there, many of them amazing and what could I possibly contribute? But over the past few weeks, the idea has been growing and growing and "no way" changed into "why not?"

The topic of the blog, that was the easy part. I am, and always have been, a very crafty person. I liko e sewing, drawing, scrapbooking, jewelry making and find myself getting into OOAK (One of a Kind) dolls, clay and other mediums.

And, unfortunately, the more I discover the amazing world of creativeness, the more I find resistance to it. What I see as creative, others see as ridiculous. So this blog is three fold: encourage people to explore what they see as creative, share my own creations and share what others are creating.

Feel free to join me on this journey and leave your creative inhibitions on the cutting room floor.
