Awesome Polymer Clay Statues

Wednesday, February 10th, 2016

Dottie Torres, aka Gimmeswords, makes wonderful polymer clay stuff including miniatures and jewellery. But it’s her statues that are really awesome – I’ll let you see why!




Above are Bowser Jr with his Clown Car, Deku Link doing his flowercopter thing and FFIX’s Vivi. They are all hand sculpted and painted. These one-of-a-kind statues are all for sale in Dottie’s Etsy shop, but she has photos of more of her work on her website, – including this awesome Light World Map from A Link to the Past!

Final Fantasy: Record Keeper Cross Stitched Sprites

Monday, January 4th, 2016

Everyone that knows me is already aware, but I think it’s pretty obvious that I like Final Fantasy games. So of course I love to see stitched pieces from some of my favourites! One of the latest is Final Fantasy: Record Keeper, a game for mobile devices. It’s very fun, and has some wonderful sprites!
Delver01 from the forums seems to agree! He’s cross stitched a couple of his favourite ones.

FFRK Sephiroth

Final Fantasy VII’s Sephiroth


The classic FF summon creature, Ifrit.

The classic FF summon creature, Ifrit.

Both pieces are stitched “over two” on 28ct oatmeal linen. Sephiroth has 2,248 stitches in 12 colours, while Ifrit has 3,345 stitches in 19 colours.
I have to say, they turned out very nicely indeed! This Mage thinks she may have to go dig out that folder of Record Keeper sprites and get stitching! (Any suggestions would, of course, be very welcome!)

Chocobo/Dr Seuss Mashup

Monday, October 5th, 2015

Stitchmond from the forums has been doing more wonderful work of late. One of them is this cute little mashup piece:

It’s stitched on 14ct oatmeal aida, and as Stitchmond says, “It’s pretty straightforward.”

Video Game Birthday Cakes!

There are a lot of video game themed cakes out there, and I really mean a LOT. Today I thought we’d look at a few cool birthday cakes for kids and adults alike!

The rings are my favourite part! And Classic Sonic, of course. I wasn’t able to find out who created this, so if any of you readers know who it was please do let us know!

This cake is just beautiful! Gina, the creator, made this cake for her daughter’s birthday.

Another one from Gina (and also for her daughter’s birthday – what a lucky kid!), this one is just awesome. Even the stones are edible, and if you look closely you’ll see candles in the tail flame!


Well, dear readers, it’ll be my birthday in a couple of months…guess what kind of cake I would like? :)

I discovered these shadowboxes today while reviewing my Etsy feed, and I just love them! They’re made by ThePaperPonyPlace.

They have so many more shadowboxes in their store, too – from videogames to anime, Doctor Who to My Little Pony. Each shadowbox is made with card stock, placed in layers that makes them pop from the background. Check out the shop and their dA account for more!
