Dear internet: I drew you a picture, and I made you your own colouring sheet. In celebration of an especially weird online day.

Click on the link for a PDF of the colouring sheet: 
Either you were on the internet today or you weren't, and if you weren't there is no point in trying to explain the day's events to you because you'll just think it's all completely, totally, unbelievably ridiculous and despair for the world. (And you'd be right.) ...

Just before Valentine's Day I shared this little DIY for improving those traditional conversation hearts.

I've now added the full instructions for making cute little hexagonal gift boxes as well, as the second half of the post. Enjoy!
I have disliked candy “conversation hearts” since, well, ever. Which isn't proper grammar, but neither are those dumb hearts. I dislike their chalky taste*, pastel colours (I like pastels fine in Monet paintings and summer dresses, but that's about it) and completely inane, saccharine and ...

New blog post! Save your empty packing tape & duct tape rolls, make pretty little boxes. http://tallystreasury.com/2015/01/round-gift-boxes/ 
I've started rubbing my hands happily at work anytime we use up another roll of packing tape, because it means I have a new craft supply. I positively pounce on the empty cardboard tabe tubes before they can hit the recycling bin. They come home with me and are turned into darling little ...

These charmingly creepy Halloween decorations are ridiculously easy to make, and cast some fantastically spooky shadows! 
For the first time in over eight years, I'm living in an actual house that has an entrance onto the street, and windows that are easily visible from the street. This means that we might actually get trick-or-treaters this Halloween! It means that if I put decorations in our windows, people might ...

In which I take 50 dimetrodon plushies on an outing to the playground. Wheeee! 
Time for an adorable pictures post! You may recall that this past spring I made a horde of wee dimetrodon plushies for The Doubleclicks' Kickstarter. (Their new album has a song about dimetrodons. It's awesome. The whole album is awesome. If you're not already familiar with the Doubleclicks, ...

It's PAX prep time - make yourself a beautiful fabric lanyard!
PAX is coming! While I have an exciting collection of hopes and plans to attend some new (to me) conventions in the next year, PAX is always my biggest convention experience of the year. First because it's just so big in general, and second because it's the convention at which I've made (or been ...

No matter what the weather is like outside, these terrarium cards won't wither & die! Also they're super cute, if I do say so myself. :)
We don't really suffer a lack of greenery out here on the west coast. The colour green (as well as the colour grey, numerous shades of it in fact, I'm sad to say) is generally to be found in great abundance out here. The trick is more to keep things from growing than anything else – those who ...

Valentine's Day approaches, full of sugar and horribly saccharine notes. Combat the tweeness with this conversation heart cushion that conveys a different sort of feeling. 
Excessive Valentine's Day enthusiasm weirds me out. Me, I like a loving, caring relationship that is built on mutual adoration and respect, and a whole heaping lot of irreverent, sarcastic humour. Which may seem a little incongruous with the way I also love cuteness in most any form, ...

I LOVE decorating for Christmas. Here's a super inexpensive, fun and simple way to turn your home into a winter wonderland. There's something about decorations hanging from the ceiling - a normally bare surface that attracts no attention - that adds an easy +10 to festive cheer.
Christmas is my very very favourite holiday, and one of my very very favourite things about this holiday is decorating. The lights and decorations (within tasteful reason) are a large part of what creates the magic of the season for me. Last year, @thatlaurachick asked me if I had any advice for ...

I'm very pleased to announce that I'm participating in the Dungeons and Dragons Extra Life game again this year, on October 25th! All donations for my participation will go to the BC Children's Hospital Foundation.

Check out my fundraising page, and donate to determine my character details, starting bonuses, whether I'll costume up for the event, and what adorable plush companion I get to take with me on the adventure (that could be yours afterwards)!

I'm getting dressed up for PAX, in my own DIY geek fashion. Check out these latest dress creations! 
PAX starts tomorrow and my wardrobe is READY. The readiness of many other aspects of my PAX attendance is a little questionable still, but my clothing choices have been made (and then that chosen clothing made, b/c I imagined it rather than actually finding it in a store) & scheduled & I am ...

Such scale! Many dragon! RAWR! Learn how to make these yourself, and start sending people the coolest of greeting cards.
Here, as they say, be dragons. I have loved dragons forEVER. Patricia C. Wrede's Dealing With Dragons and subsequent sequels were some of my favourite books as a kid (and I reread them now and again to this day), I collected all the castle themed lego I could and especially coveted the sets with ...
