You can tell by my hair that I don’t like to be subtle in my appearance. This sometimes applies to the jewelry I wear as well. I like all kinds of jewelry, but occasionally, I want something that makes a statement. Fortunately, if you feel the same way, there are many artists out there that create such pieces. Prepare to be noticed!
Happy Halloween everyone! Since my art post this week landed on Halloween, I’ve rounded up the most quintessentially Halloween art and craft pieces I could find. I hope they get you in the mood to don a costume and party with the undead!
I was recently in the coolest video game store (Jay Street Video Games) that I’ve ever been in, in the King of Prussia Mall. The store has games for every console imaginable, and made me want to come home, hook up my Atari 2600, and play the games that I grew up playing.
How many of these do you remember playing for hours at a time?
10 – Pitfall Mittens Knitting Pattern
This item combines two of my passions: knitting and gaming. Pitfall is my Mom’s favorite Atari game, and though I tried, I was still haven’t gotten farther in this game than she has.
9 – Pac-Man Ghost Pendant
My favorite part of this necklace is the googly eyes – they’re a perfect addition to this already awesome pendant.
How many times have you been BORED online and decided to just google “games” and play something? Maybe you are fond of Zuma or Bejeweled, but maybe you will find a new time wasting game in one of these gems.
Most Addicting Game: Pac-Xon
This is a great game! Kind of a mix of snake and PacMan. The point is to fill up the board with boxes without letting the ghosts touch you or the line you’re drawing. I’ve lost about 3 hours of my life so far to this game…and I just found it today.
Game That Will Change the World: Free Rice
Play this game and answer questions. For every question you answer, the website will donate 10 whole grains of rice to the World Food Programme. (Though, this site actually refutes freerice’s honesty. It’s just rice! Why can’t people be honest about rice?!)
Most Amusing Game: PopUp Killer
I’m a Mac user. And this game makes me smile. Because it’s true.
Geekiest game: Sonic in Mario Land
There are a few internet games that take 16 bit characters and put them in Mario games, but I appreciate this one the most. It’s not actual Mario Brothers 3 or anything, but Sonic is trapped in a Mario-like environment. And the face off with Mario was amusing (because Mario looks evil when he wins!)
Most Ridiculous Game: Beiber Kisser
Oh yes ladies. Are you a big fan of that girly voice and the suave mop that rests on this precious head? Sneak past all of Beib’s security and prove to Justin that you are his number one fan by kissing him! Because that’s not weird. Or slightly deranged.
Alright…so what have I missed? Any good addicting games that you can’t stop playing? Leave a comment!
And here’s some etsy fun themed around the featured games! I know I’m going to get a pair of Bieb earrings for Melvin. HOT!
