My geek box Jujly review

I decided to subscribe to a new box, as I really missed the Crafty Creatives one. I suppose I could have resubscribed to them, but I still do not like the new format so I looked around. I am a geek at heart so when I saw that there was a subscription geek box available in the UK, I signed up!

My geek box starts from 16.99 a month, and is a rolling contract. The first box I had was July, and the theme was animate!


The blue box is huge! They send it by Royal Mail tracking. The blue box comes in another box (pity they can't just have the blue box, to save packaging.


The first item was an Adventure Time Pop vinyl figure. Now I haven't seen Adventure Time, but I know it's very popular. I decided to gift this one to my brother's girlfriend, who loves the series.


Simpsons plasters. For some reason I have become increasingly accident prone lately so these will come in handy! I have already used one, as I tore the nail off my little toe.


I used to love Turtles when I was a kid! However, wrist bands are too big for me and Donatello was my favourite so I gave it to my little brother.


A Kwik E Mart reusable bag. It's quite handy actually cos it folds up so it's attached to a keyring.


A Kenny sticker. Not really into stickers so I gave it to my brother.


An Adventure Time t-shirt. This was quite nice and green in my favourite colour so I kept it for myself.

First impressions are good. I realise I gave half of it away but what I kept was still worth more than I paid for the box, and I like the fact that some of the stuff is not just geeky, but useful too. I'm looking forward to next month's box as the theme is Quests. Fingers crossed for some LOTR stuff!

....and I've run out of heart related puns....

First off, as always, the decluttering. All funkos this week (and next actually) They've gone to my brother.












Even my cute little Sauron!

Onto the makes. Haven't had a chance to make any jewellery yet and the stitch is not yet finished (on the final page now, which has the most french knots on) but I have made another heart.


I started by cutting two hearts out of some Tim Holtz paper. With the first I sprayed with green and brown Lindy's sprays, and glued it to the wooden heart. With the second I cut with a mixed media thinlit die on one side. It didn't work completely so I cut a bit away. I used texture paste with a brick stencil, then sprayed it with blue Lindy's sprays, adding a couple of drops of alcohol ink on certain bricks to darken it. 


I love Lindy's sprays - they call them magical for a reason!





I die cut loads of gears, painting them silver before attaching them to the heart. I added a couple of pieces of ephemera, a clock, and a wing I've had in…

Keep rolling, rolling, rolling,rolling.

I've completed a few things this week. The first is my cross stitch. Already started work on a new one too!

I had to substitute a fair few colours but it works I think.
I've also done a few cards, using the DoCrafts Build a Scene dies. I have three; around the world, fairground, and summer's day.


The good thing about the fairground one is that you can use one of the offcuts as an insert, which makes it easier when using black card. I used everything but the balloon dies in this one, adding a couple of wooden stars painted silver and some silver gems for the lights.


I should have done the deep orange card bit blue apparently, for the sea, but I didn't have two shades of blue paper! Oh well, it still works. Perfect for a card from the sunny seaside of Newquay, except the seagull isn't attacking someone. The best thing is the offcut from one of these dies is perfect for another card - which will be revealed once I make it.

I've also made a bookmark.



I think this…

Somewhere...beyond the sea

Scary thing happening tomorrow - my first day at a new job, so there will probably be a little less in terms of posting until I settle in. I've done some this week though.


This was the first piece. I had to show you the background before I put all the ephemera on. It's a few lindy's sprays with the bubble stamp. The thing that makes the bubble stamp pop is the use of white pen to highlight the bubbles. Really makes it come alive.
Here's the finished product. I coloured letters with blue ink, glittered with stickles and coated with UTEE. I cut out plant life and inked it with various colours, as well as stamping a clam and star fish, and colouring with distress crayons. Finally I added a few shells.

Continuing the nautical theme, here is a pair of earrings, made with items from the latest Beadhaul box.

My aunt and uncle have been down for a couple of weeks, and while they were down my uncle painted our staircase. So I made him a thank you card. I chose the Wild at H…
