Entitlement Posters..

Game of Thrones Fan art!

Hi! I know it's been a while since I've blogged with the holiday and what not. Hope yours was as great as mine! Shared some good times with my mom and dad as well as my hubby and son. Snacked a little, chatted some and everyone opened a few surprises too.

 One of the presents I received is Season 1 of Game of Thrones. Since Season 3 comes on in a few months, I thought I'd rewatch the old episodes to get ready.I'm so ready to see what happens to Tyrion, Arya, Daenerys, and all the rest!

The video got me thinking about the show and how beautiful and richly designed it was and I decided to share some fan art I found on the web:

One of my favorite drawings of  Daenerys with her dragons is this one by Teiku at Fantasyinspirations.
She's so ethereal looking, yet so vibrant at the same time..

I HAD to add this wated poster by F*yeah Game of Thrones Art.
Makes one think..What DID happen to Nymeria? And will she find Arya after all? I hope so, she seems to need some looking after.

GORGEOUSLY illustrated cards by Christine M. Griffin:

Here is some interesting digital art of my favorite character Tyrion Lannister on Behance
 Peter Dinklage is such an amazing actor..his sarcastic dry wit gets me every time, and he seems to play this type of character in a lot of his other roles..

Cersei Lannister may be conniving and treacherous but she sure is beautiful in this drawing by Tei Iku

I'm sure many of us would LOVE Jeoffrey as a target! Crystal Fontan has a lot of unique GOT designs on her site so take a peek..

Hope this whets your appetite for Season 3!!

More Christmas toilet paper roll crafts for kids! DIY and green craft!

I came across some really cute and unusual toilet paper roll crafts this week while surfing the net and thought I'd pass them on! All of these I think kids could do and I think they are very different from the usual Christmas crafts.

Also, if you haven't seen my first post on toilet roll art..check it out here.

The first one is here. It looks like an outdated Geocities link but the instructions for this wreath are still there. Isn't that nice looking?

From A Step in the Journey is a great set of 3D Christmas posters or plaques. LOVE!

How about a toilet paper roll Christmas tree sculpture? You can find the instructions here:

Last but not least..this wreath with berries is so pretty. I think kids could do would just take patience and time.

Hope I gave you all some fun crafts to do the week before Christmas!!

Green Dragon Inn opens in New Zealand for patrons!

In honor of the Hobbit opening tomorrow and all things Tolkien, I came across an article in the Daily Mail and thought I'd share.

The Green Dragon is located in the tourist village of Hobbiton which was built in 1998 and open to the public since 2002. The Green Dragon was officially opened on November 29th last month by New Zealand's Prime Minister John Key.
Estimates say that the pub should bring in 100,000 visitors over the next 12 months.

Would you drink here? I sure would!! Dunno about the long plane ride though...

Unique DIY christmas gift crafts with Altoid tins! Green crafts!

Who doesn't love those little curiously strong mints? AND when you're done enjoying them, don't you think "Wow, this is such a cool tin. Wish I could use it for something.." Well, I have found some really unique crafts you can make with them!

How about this Altoid pool table from Backyard Engineer?

They suggest these materials:
Carpet sample (free) (I'd probably use felt, but that's me..)
7 Gemstones (we used 6mm beads)
copper rod
Flat copper wire

Or how about for kids, a sleeping mouse in a tin? MMMCrafts shows you how
So adorable!

TLC Family shares their take on a Zen garden in a tin..

Love the wood like treatment on the tin..

I could go on and on, let me know if you'd like more DIY with tins and I'll be happy to go find some!

Angry Birds Star Wars Hoth Update Screenshots!

Well, I was able to get to Hoth quicker than I thought. When I finished Tatooine this time, I was able to skip the Death Star and go right there.

 Her ability is a pink tractor beam that pulls blocks.

Isn't she cute in the cutscene?

Four Leia birds to complete the level. This was an easy one.

Lookie at the Pig AT/AT funny. Leia bird tractors his legs and over he GOES!

This was a very fun update, and with the addition of Princess Leia, it's much easier to topple large structures.

Have FUN!!

Angry Birds Star Wars Hoth Update is here..

Well, yeah,about 3 days ago, but I am just now getting around to blogging about it. More in a second about that...

The Hoth update introduces Princess Leia Bird in 20 new levels and two bonus levels. Her special ability is a pink tractor beam that can be used pull the legs of the dreaded AT-AT walkers and bring them tumbling down.

So-My computer had to be upgraded to Win 7 from XP and I'm now in the process of reinstalling my games. However, my save games were deleted somehow so I'm in the process of redoing the game so I can get to Hoth and take screenshots. Bear with me as I do! Screenshots of this adorable little bird soon!!
