My husband and I are currently having a Doctor Who marathon. We’re just barely on the 11th Doctor. Amelia Pond just decided to travel with The Doctor. And something about.. Daleks pretending to be British? And.. oh god, oh god, oh god, MORE WEEPING ANGELS?!?! What the frak?!
Now I know I’ve gone on record as saying that I’m not a Doctor Who fan, but after watching episodes, ya know, actually in order.. okay, dammit I am.. kind of.. sort of.. a Doctor Who fan now. *mumble mumble* SHUT UP. None of this “I told you so” crap. I get enough of that from Jonathan, sheesh!
Why the sudden confession of conversion to the Whovian dark side? Weeeeell, I’m glad you asked!
I have the great privilege of partnering with Usagianddarien in launching a Doctor Who Tardis Tote Bag giveaway! I know the majority of my blog posts have been heavy on the “domestic” side, and somewhat lacking on the “geek” factor recently, so consider this giveaway a formal apology. ^_^
More On Usagianddarien
Usagianddarien is essentially a purveyor of original geeky themed artwork – ranging from Doctor Who to Hunger Games to Adventure Time – all on functional canvases, such as Converse sneakers, high heels and flats (though art on plain ol’ paper is available as well).

Usagianddarien’s Etsy shop is run by artist Tonya McCullough, who is a fellow cosplayer and domestic geek! She is a mother of four beautiful children, one of which is autistic. She makes her art from her home on a workbench that her husband handmade her. I asked Tonya to send me some photos of her work space, because spouse made workshops just reek of nerd romance and I eat them up like candy. Check it out:
Anyhoo, Tonya’s drawing hobby also serves to help with expenses for her family and helps her cover expenditures while getting through Graduate School. Tonya will be student teaching this semester, so her geeky chic art is currently her sole source of side income. She takes special orders, so if you’re looking for a great gift for a special someone (Valentines Day is coming up! *wink wink nudge nudge*), go check out her shop! And let her know I sent you!
Now on to the giveaway!
Tonya is offering to one lucky winner, one of her original hand painted Doctor Who Tardis Tote Bags. The bag is made of sturdy, nonwoven polyester and measures 14 1/2″ X 16 1/2″ with 12″ handles. (It’s roughly the size of a reuseable grocery bag, without the flat bottom.)
Each bag from Tonya’s Etsy shop is individually hand painted with acrylic paint and sealed with acrylic paint sealer. Since every art piece from Usagianddarien is individually hand painted by Tonya, no two are ever the same!
