Episode 101: Binging

In this episode, Sandy & Jade talk about the phenomena of binge watching, and what they, themselves, have been binge watching -- from science fiction to anime to super hero shows.

For the second half of the show, the girls catch up on their latest DIY, costuming/cosplay, and crafting projects.

    Get Crafty

    If you’re looking for a new craft to try, why not pick up the lucent?  Stitch Diva Studios has released a free email tutorial series on how to make cord with this simple tool.  If you don’t want to buy a gadget right away, be sure to check out their Instagram pics of lucents made from everyday objects, and maybe make one yourself before you buy a real one. Whether you use it to make drawstrings for your projects, beaded fiber necklaces and bracelets, or even as a starting i-cord for a knit project, this simple craft has a lot of possibilities.
    Jade has been re-acquainting herself with macrame in order to make her Moana necklace.
