Geeky Crafter Gifts

When a gift-giving opportunity comes up, crafty people are shockingly easy to buy for. The only type of people who are easier to shop for? Geeky crafters. 🙂

I do have to give my husband credit for these Christmas gifts, though – he definitely knows me well. Check out my awesome Doctor Who stitch markers.

I use stitch markers now. Stitch markers are cool.

All of your Doctor Who favorites, represented in useful stitch marker form. The husband found them on Etsy (yes, my husband buys me things from Etsy – be jealous) – the seller’s shop is here.

I use these while working on my projects, and drinking out of my Downton Abbey mug. While the cat sits on my lap. And I’m watching episodes of Downton Abbey or Sherlock. Periodically taking a break to read blogs or social media. I have become a parody of myself.

OttLite Flex and Store

PSA: I just scored a new OttLite from Michaels for $24! I had been eyeing these awesome lamps for a while, and this deal was too good to resist.

The Flex and Store lamp was originally priced at about $80 – but it’s worth noting that it can be had for much cheaper elsewhere. (This same model is on sale right now, along with other models, at Jo-Ann’s infamous periodic lighting sale.) In any case, I already had a Michaels gift card from Christmas, so it was priced just right for me. 🙂

Note the small built-in caddy – perhaps now I’ll be able to keep track of my cable needle. Doubtful.

I just got this and have already been using it a TON. I don’t know how I managed without it, really – I have such bad eyesight anyway, and I wasn’t doing myself any favors by going without a decent task light.

It’s set up on my coffee table right now, in fact, casting light over my otherwise eye-straining thread crochet project. Anybody else loving their OttLite (or another type of task light)?

Hope everyone is enjoying the weekend – I’m getting ready to settle in for a night of PBS. Downton Abbey + Sherlock? Can’t think of a better lineup. The cup that the husband got me for Christmas has been coming in handy. 🙂  (It’s from Etsy, but it doesn’t seem to be available now.)
