Poll of the Week

So, I started thinking about this poll last night while we were watching Brother From Another Planet (all hail Joe Morton!) and that got me thinking about other very good movies that not a lot of people have seen. However, the more I thought about it, the more I thought …

Video linkdump

Grab a drink! This is a long one! — For the most part I don’t like to recommend videos that are very long – I don’t like to sit and watch long boring shit that someone else has said is the best thing since sliced bread, why should you?! But …

Old Dog has an old

If you had asked me a little over two years ago, I would have said that Bridgett was fast on her way out. Tim and I talked it over and as having a “backup dog” was very important to me (much less sad than getting a “replacement dog”) we went …

Friday Photo: Howl

I took some neat photos this week (yay, new camera!) but hands down this is The One of the Week. I took this while sitting with Jenn on the patio of Starbucks, with my camera balanced on my water bottle. All on automatic settings, with the zoom up to the …

This Week in HaldeCraft

This week saw the release of my Valentine-themed guest soaps, among other things. Clicking the photo will take you to bigger photos on Flickr; the links beside will take you to their Etsy pages: – 1. Bathtub soap dishes – the two white ones I uploaded sold immediately; I’ll be …

Christmas Ornaments

Yarn: sock and sport weight yarn scraps from many different projects. Pattern: Loosely based on Knitted and Felted Ornaments and Garland by Leigh Radford Notes: These were really easy to make – both sets were made in about a day and a half… but I found myself switching from sock …
