Deadly Creatures

August 18, 2009

Deadly Creatures by THQ for Wii. Greatest game ever? maybe not. But if you find yourself watching arachnophobia safely under the covers with extra strength bug spray in hand, absolutely terrified but unable to look away, then you may find deadly creatures an interesting, if not frightening find.

Battle hairy tarantulas, aggressive scorpions, rattlesnakes, hornets, black widows and every other creepy, crawling true-to-life bump in the night creature you can think of, in a deadly desert setting full of bones, thorns, garden gnomes and Billy Bob Thornton.

This isn’t your run-of-the-mill, happy-go-lucky, save-the-princess wii game.

Graphic designer Amy Moss from Melbourne, Australia has a whimsical website of  ideas and DIY for parties, entertaining, weddings, home décor, gifts, food and fashion that I would encourage any DIY girl (and the secure-in-his-manhood guy) to take a look at.

Super Simple Super Cheap DIY

July 29, 2009

Have you checked out the latest Do It Yourself Magazine from Better Homes and Gardens? They have some really fun ideas this issue – check out some of it at diyideas.com

Inspired by one of their under $5 projects, I put up a couple fabric circles in our kitchen using scraps left over from our breakfast nook valances, purchased at target. It’s kinda a “duh” project but its fun and GREEN to put left over scrap to good use.
