I started crafting at the age of six when Mom handed me a piece of paper with a picture drawn on it, a darning needle, and some yarn. Sixteen years later, I'm still crafting up a storm. Like a lot of crafty people, I dabble in many different types of crafts and usually have multiple projects going on at the same time. In general, if I can afford the basic tools and have access to basic instruction, I'm going to try my hand at it.

However, I also have a great love for horror movies, bizarre cartoons, fast and heavy music, video games, and comic books. Above all, I enjoy combining any of the aforementioned things with my crafting. Nothing beats using my decoupage skills to plaster my coffee table with skulls, stenciling techniques to make my own band shirts, or my embroidery prowess to add my favorite horror movie quotes to my bath towels.

I hope to use this blog to help other people who enjoy these kinds of 'alternative' crafts find resources and inspiration for their own crafty, slightly unusual, endeavors.

You'll be able to find tutorials, links to other craft blogs, crafty websites, inspiration, and showcases, all with an alternative edge.
