Geek Girls of Etsy Shop Awesomeness Featurette 4/22

Today's featurette focuses on the awesome art of CrazyUndergroundShop on Etsy. I was a fan of Priscilla's work before I started this weekly feature,having stumbled across her fan page on Facebook--

here is a bit about her from her Etsy bio:

"Crazy Underground Garage" is an online art shop selling card designs and art prints by me, Priscilla Peeters.

I studied Animation at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Ghent, where I graduated with a master's degree in 2007. I then studied for one extra year to earn my teacher's degree.

I live in Belgium. I love chocolate. I'm addicted to coffee. Some of my favourite past times include sitting on the couch with a blanket and a hot cup of coffee/tea/cocoa/... in winter or relaxing on a bench watching the people go by in summer. "Singing in the rain" is one of my favourite movies ever and I was one of those kids who kept singing the soundtrack of any Disney movie on a loop until the next one came out (sorry mom & dad!).

Drawing is all I ever wanted to do, and I'm not very good at writing little bio-pieces about myself.

Here are a few gems from her Etsy shop:

Etsy Geek Girls Shop Awesomeness Featurette 4/14

I knew from the minute I saw the name of this week's featured shop I was in for some fun,and I was right. 
Amanda's shop, The Snarky Little Stitcher, features "quirky,snarky and geeky cross stitch & plastic canvas creations." 
Here's a bit of Amanda's bio:
I am a stay-at-home mom with 3 very active boys. I am also a voracious and unabashed geek, especially old-school stuff. 

I tend to work on all manner of crafts: quilting, sewing, afghans, felt, beading, needlepoint & cross stitch and plastic canvas. I always need to be doing something with my hands. When I'm home and I do manage to put my needle down I am usually reading or doing crossword & jigsaw puzzles.
Amanda's shop is full of geeky(and snarky) goodness. Here are a few favorites:

My son loves these Pokemon magnets (she has Johto gym badge magnets in her shop,too!)

For the Star Wars geek

one of these would look great on any desk
