One of the things I’ve been working on at some Rupees from Zelda.  I designed two versions, a  small and a large.  I started with red, just because I like red and I figured it was one of the highest.  Here’s a basic guideline for the ‘value’ of each rupee.

Green = 1
Bluee = 5
Yellow = 10
Red = 20
Purple = 50
Orange = 100
Silver = 200
Gold = 300

So here are the rupees I’ve made so far, the small and large together.

My geek drink of choice is, of course, Mt. Dew.  I’m also a bit of a neat freak so I use coasters.  Even if you don’t use them they’d make a nice display for your geeky buddies who are over for your LAN party.

I believe I mentioned coming up with this idea a few posts back and I picked up a mix pack of mini pony beads.  I      used the same pattern from the large seed bead mushrooms I’ve been doing and it turned out to be the perfect size.   Here’s the green one I did.  These are a little flexible, but I think they’d work well as a coaster.

Okay, I’ve been promising this post and talking about it for a loooong time, so here it is!  Like I’ve said a million times… yard sale blah blah blah, trying to sell stuff blah blah blah, making non-geeky stuff, and yeah, that’s about it.  I have a lot of ideas and a lot of patterns made up, it’s just been a matter of time in being able to do it and all.

So the first thing I wanted to show you guys is… a TRIFORCE wee!  These patterns were made in a program called Bead Tool which you can download and play around with, it’s pretty neat.  Can’t copy or print from the trial version though.  So here is my version of the Triforce, I’d use two shades, a gold and a more yellow gold like here.  This size would be the larger version, such as large mushroom.  This type of stitch would be very simple to make a smaller version that would look just the same.  Like the mushrooms this could go on necklaces, key chains, earrings, anything.  Even though I haven’t made one yet, if you just have to have one please email me and see the How to Order page for pricing info and all.

Hello fellow gamers, geeks, dorks, and nerds!   Welcome to my cozy little blog, however you may have stumbled here.  If you are here by accident, please stay!  I may have something that might just tweek your geeky interests.

So I have always been not so much an artsy person, I don’t draw, paint or sculpt, but I have always liked crafts.  Just plain making things, which seems fitting in all aspects of my life.  I’m a recent graduate in Engineering, so there’s some design and building there; I love to cook, more creating things that are quite tasty mind you; and I enjoy beading.
