Hey folks! I’m so excited to announce that I’m going to be a weekly contributor to the awesome blog Geek Crafts! If you haven’t checked them out, you must swing on over there and spend some time exploring all the awesome geek-themed crafts, tutorials, DIYs, handmade products from around the web, and even movie reviews they’ve collected for your perusal. For my first post ever I’m sharing some fun Thor related tutorials from around the web, all in honor of that sexiest man alive, Chris Hemsworth.
To celebrate joining the folks at Geek Crafts I thought I’d share a few of my favorite geek-tastic sites on the intarwebz.
- Mom’s Basement: This is a Facebook Group of geek crafters, artists, and handmade entrepreneurs like myself. I LOVE this group.
- Made in Kansas City: This coalition is made up of Kansas City makers bent on world domination–OK, maybe not world domination, but we’re definitely into promoting products made by folks in KC, supporting local businesses, and shopping small businesses instead of those big box stores.
- Handmade in KC: This group of handmade artists and artisans are all KC (and KC area) natives also bent on world domination! OK, that might be a bit ambitious, but the fine folks in this group create everything from home goods, upcycled awesomeness, decor, clothing, accessories, jams and jellies, jewelry, and so much more. You should definitely check these folks out. Find them on Facebook too!
- Geek Crafts: Need some inspiration for your next geek-tastic project? This is the place to go for tutorials, DIYs, ideas–and all for a variety of crafts, like needlework, makeup, cosplay, crochet, knitting, paper crafts, and just about anything else you can think of.
- The Geekerye: the owner/artist at this unique little Etsy shop, Rose, creates the most delightful jewelry inspired by a variety of fandoms. And, she does custom work.
- Spoonflower: this is the NUMBER 1 place to get geek themed fabrics! Plus, I sell my own designs there too.
- Craftsy: How I adore this site. They provide a place for independent pattern designers to sell their patterns (shameless plug for my Police Box Paper Piecing Pattern). They also have a huge array of online classes covering a variety of areas, including sewing, crocheting, knitting, paper crafting, jewelry making, cooking, cake decorating, and even drawing. If you want to learn how to do some new technique, use a new media, brush up on your skills, this is the site to check out. Aside from the classes, there are tons of free tutorials and patterns too. And you can purchase some of your supplies through the site too.
What are some of your favorite geek-fabulous sites on the web?
