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!

Feminine doesn't have to be pink

I was making a Christmas present for somebody the other day and I got an email from That's Crafty for their latest challenge, which is feminine, so I decided to enter it into it. I'm also going to enter it into Finnabairs denim journal challenge using blue as my inspiration.

I started off with a plain wooden chest of drawers, coating it with white gesso then with tissue paper. After it was dry I inked it with distress pads and coated it with crackle texture paste. The interesting thing here is that I then had to take away the wooden lines between the drawers as the glue had swelled them so they wouldn't fit!! Lesson learned.


This is one side. I used some Docraft Parisienne blue paper for the 'blue' of the box, using a thinlits mixed media die to make a negative image and allow the tissue to shine through. The panel was inked with walnut stain on the side. Finally I cut some flowers and butterflies out, adding a gem in the middle of each flower.
This is the top. S…

A new challenge

Not crafty related which is why it's in a separate post. When I mentioned about not decluttering in a recent post it got me thinking. When I have been successful in completing something it's because I have broken it down into manageable chunks, so I have decided to attack decluttering using the same method. So, from now until the day I can't decide what to get rid of, I will be getting rid of one item a day. Here are the rules.

1. It cannot be food - obvious reasons there
2. A photo must be taken of said item - there are exceptions to this rule. I am not going to subject you to a picture of my old underwear should that be an item I get rid of.
3. Once chosen I cannot change my mind - this is relevant when I am in the middle of filling up a bag to give to charity. I cannot dig through it, once an item is in there, there it stays.
4. I must explain here where I got it (if I remember) why I am getting rid of it and where it is going.

So, with that in mind here are the first i…

Time! Look where we are...

Wasn't going to post anything today, then I decided that it's been ages since I've entered a challenge! So I looked around and found That's Crafty were hosting a challenge with the theme of time. So here is my entry to that. See if you can spot the time link...


Got it yet? I decided to celebrate my favourite Time Lord, Doctor Who! (The Eleventh incarnation to be precise)
The star is symbolic of Galifrey. It's chipboard, painted with tarnished brass distress paint, stickled with the same colour, then edged with weathered wood distress pad. The blue symbols are foil, embossed and sanded. The embossing folder just reminded me of Galifreyan writing!

The background is clocks *(not sure but I think it's a Docraft set) to which I inked the edges in weathered wood and added some remnant rub ons.

Bow tie. Cos bow ties are cool! This was made from Sew Lovely paper.

You can also see a shrink plastic keychain Tardis here, complete with bead sonic screwdriver and key. Cos e…
