Spreading love for the cuddly and kawaii amigurumi

Amigurumi are tiny yarn animals/people/characters/kawaii objects, crocheted for our enjoyment. They're lovely, warm, and snuggly crafts with a big respect for nerd culture. I've never seen the variety of patterns that amigurumi-ers make in any other craft.

Enjoy these nerdcore examples of amigurumi — most have patterns if you click through!

Throw this party: A Nerdy Thirty birthday party

About two weeks before my 30th birthday, someone reminded me that my "dirty thirty" was coming up soon. To which Aaron, that guy I married, responded: "With Megan, it's more like her nerdy thirty." And thus, a theme was born!

This is how I pulled off one hell of an awesome Nerdy Thirty birthday theme with only two weeks to plan, and with a little help from my friends.
