Phew! What a week. I have been working my fingers to the bone doing a myriad a crafts...knitting, sewing, cake decorating, balloon making, even some pottery. My crafting knows no bounds.
Ok, so the truth of the matter is that I have been playing Crafting Mama for the Nintendo DS. Basically Crafting Mama is a video game that gives the player a bunch of different crafting projects which the player has to complete step by step.
It's a silly game, yet so addicting. I really appreciate how realistic the steps are for the crafts. Like for sewing a kerchief, you need to cut the cloth, trace the pattern, iron the hems, stitch it all up. The geeky details is what makes it fun.
I have to say, it is gratifying for mama to validate my crafting skills. Look, she says I'm a perfect knitter.
For the most part, I'm a natural at any craft I try. But sometimes, when mama has to fix my mistakes, she gets angry.
(Funny, that's the same face I make when I drop a stitch.)
Don't get me wrong, I am not a hardcore "gamer." But I did buy a Nintendo DS because I enjoy puzzle games and such. (Really like the Professor Layton series.) I find these games perfect entertainment for when I travel. So when I saw that there was a crafting game, how could I not buy it?
So there you go. Some geeky e-crafting fun. Beep-bo-beep-bop-bop
