Both my husband and father love astronomy and astrophysics. I enjoy space-related things too, but I’ve sat through many an episode of The Universe where I thought my head would explode trying to understand String Theory and quantum mechanics. If you also have a space-lover in your life, or happen to be one, check out the treasury below for out of this world handmade awesomeness.
Mining games seem to be all the rage right now. Everyone knows and loves Minecraft, but there are other equally awesome but lesser known mining/crafting games out there too, such as Terraria, Miner Dig Deep!, Total Miner, and probably others that I haven’t played. These games are absurdly addictive, whether your obsession is building a bigger and better castle, slaughtering zombies or searching for those elusive diamonds.
In today’s treasury, get ready to leave your colorful, pixellated overworld, craft yourself some awesome tools, and dig deep! But watch out, zombies and other enemies are lurking below the surface. If you survive, you may just find the treasure you’re looking for…
The first time I heard a psychobilly song was on a Geico commercial of all places. After that, I sent away for a Th’ Legendary Shack*Shakers cd and have been in love with that type of music since. I’ve always been a fan of horror movies, Halloween, and creepiness in general, so it was easy to love other aspects of psychobilly subculture as well.
If you’re a fan of zombies, tattoos, and retro fashion, you might fall in love with it as well. Check out what these amazing Etsy sellers have made!
I’ve been a member of Etsy and DeviantART for a few years now, and have amassed quite a collection of favorite artists and shops. There are some that I like to visit periodically to see what’s new, because I simply love everything they create and can’t wait to see what they’ll have next. This week I thought I would share some of the artists and crafters I stalk (in a good way!) and maybe they’ll become a favorite of yours as well.
DirtyandDistressed is one of my favorite shops that I have yet to buy something from (eep!). They’re your outpost for the perfect clothing and accessories to complete any post-apocalyptic cosplay.

Kenneth Fairclough has a gallery of gorgeous environment and character concept art. I would want to play anything that these scenes were used in.

My son loves video games and geeky things and for Christmas he asked Santa for a gyroid from Animal Crossing. That’s not something you can pick up at WalMart. I ended up crocheting him one and he loves it. But not everyone can create obscure (and awesome) geeky toys for their kids. That’s why I love places like Etsy and Deviantart. They connect you directly with artists that are offering unique things you’re looking for or can custom make it for you.
If your kid is a geek-in-training, this gallery is sure to provide you with awesome creations they approve of. Many of these you’ll be tempted to buy for yourselves!
