My Pixel Family, a Minecraft Wolf, and a future project

 This past weekend my husband and I went to Pax East, a gaming convention in Boston.  It was fantastic, and it really helped rejuvenate my creative side. I felt quite the spark of creativity, so I made a couple quick cross stitch charts.

This is my take on pixel people art. This is my family. I tried making our dog, but it wasn't working out right, so he was cut from my final version of the family.

To make up for the lack of a dog in my family picture, I made this Minecraft dog/wolf chart. It is very easy to make charts to Minecraft or other 8/16/32 bit textures.

I have also designed a project for Mindcrack (a group of YouTubers that play on the same server). I had tweeted a picture of that out yesterday and I have gotten some good responses from other fans and the Mindcrackers themselves. I have everything I need to work on that project, but it will probably be a little before I start that. I have a bunch of projects that need to get finished first. It is nice to want to do things again. I was feeling burnt out before getting away and now I am feeling refreshed.

The next thing on my plate is to get better. Unfortunately, I came down with the "Pax Pox" so I am trying to recover and get better so that I can restart homeschool and continue reviewing products for the blog.  A review is set to go live later this week, so keep an eye on the blog!
