Geek Crafts

I have a confession.  I'm a geek.  I had no idea till last night.  I always knew I was a nerd, but a geek?  Me?  I think it's because I am married to a computer geek and spend lots of social time with uber-geeks.  By comparison, I felt very un-geeky.  I admit, I didn't even get why everyone kept saying "It's a trap!" at a Star Wars themed birthday party last year (perhaps being at a Star Wars birthday party should have been a giveaway...?).  But after laughing over this pin last night, I realized it's true.  I, Jenny Chang, am a geek.  To celebrate, here are some fun geek finds and crafts.

Lately my show of choice has been Doctor Who.  I started with the newest version and blasted through all five seasons available on Netflix.  My favorite episode by far is "Blink."  IT'S SO GOOD.

Dalek Cross-stitch Pattern.  Will these guys ever die??

My first love was Star Trek TNG.  I watched it growing up.  My husband and I recently went through the whole series again and then watched through Star Trek Voyager.

I never really thought of Harry Potter as a geek thing, but after my late night epiphany I'm thinking it fits in.  I really can't get enough Harry Potter.  I've read each book a couple of times and watch the movies on a regular basis.  If you are a HP fan I also recommend playing Lego Harry Potter for Wii and watching the Potter Puppet Pals.  Yeah...

Potter Pendants- so cute!

What are some of your favorite geeky things?  Do you have a show you can't get enough of?


  1. Hahha...I too always thought I was an "art nerd" but not a serious, real geek until lately. My hubby to be is a computer engineer, but lately my html skills have surpassed him (he doesn't have any, really) so I guess that makes me a computer nerd too, right?

  2. I love the Potter pendants! I am also married to someone who is much geekier than me so I don't really think of myself as a geek. But there are a lot of nerd references that I get that I'm sure most people don't.

    My favorite sci-fi shows that I've watched with Jake have been Dollhouse and Farscape.

    I am a huge Harry Potter fan, too. I've been thinking about writing a Harry Potter craft projects article.


Thanks for your comments! I love hearing from my readers :)
