While some popular manga are fads, others can stay with you for a lifetime. I’ve been a manga reader for more years than I care to count, and among the numerous comics that I’ve read during that time, there are a select few that have left a strong impression on me and that I seem…
This strangely therapeutic video shows us the magic of the “AgIC pen” that draws electrical circuits to light up paper cities. Japanese infrastructure company Kandenko, who is involved in many fields including electrical and telecommunication, has released a new video featuring an AgIC pen, which allows you to draw ink that instantly conducts electricity over paper.

So over the weekend, I wasn’t feeling very good, and when that happens working on a project usually helps take my mind off of feeling like crap. I love craft therapy!
So I decided to bite the bullet and finally figure out Nyx’s Accessories. I had this jewelry set for years and I thought it would be awesome. But I wasn’t impressed with the look of the stones, so I swapped them out and now I am so happy! Can you tell the difference?
Let me know what you think?

It is from Joann’s Spirit Halloween Collection! I stumbled upon the last bit of it at one Jonann’s and then found another 5 yds at another 😀
