It’s been a little over a week since I attended the vinyl cutter boot camp at Stahl’s, and I’ve been very busy experimenting. Using the cutter is getting easier. I’m learning a lot. I bought more vinyl when I went to the boot camp, so I have more colors to play around with. I have some ideas I’m kicking around, and I will list new items in my online store soon. Here are some of my creations so far.
Gen Con, the longest running gaming convention in the world, is only one month away! To celebrate, I’m offering a 30% off coupon to my Etsy shop so you can get your little ones ready for the con! Here’s the coupon code:

To all of those heading to Indy for the con, have a great time!
Yesterday we took a spontaneous Father’s Day road trip to Origins Game Fair in Columbus, OH. This is a convention featuring role-playing games, board games, and other nerdy stuff. Jason loves gaming, and we had been to several cons before. I like going to see all the amazing artwork. Sunday was Family Day at Origins and for just $25 (or $20 if you pre-register online) 2 adults and up to 4 kids can get limited access to the con.
This was Karly’s first con and first road trip! She got a little restless in her car seat, but otherwise she did great! We dressed her in a onesie we designed, with a pink d20 and the phrase “My Parents Rolled a Crit”. She eventually fell asleep in her stroller.
We spent the day walking through the exhibit hall. We bought a game called “Joking Hazard” by Cyanide & Happiness, which I’m excited about. It’s a card game similar to Cards Against Humanity, but with pictures. Jason bought the Call of Cthulhu Keeper Decks. Karly fell in love with Stuffimals by Golden Bell Studios, especially the reversible stuffed bee. I also got more information on Oddmall Hallowondrous Edition coming to the Seagate Center in Toledo October 14th and 15th. Other cool things we saw include a game called Unknown Armies by Atlas Games and Yets! by Mike Bocianowski.
It felt great to get away, even for a day. We were nervous to travel with Karly for the first time, but everything turned out fine.
