Announcement I've been doing a lot of soul searching lately, and with a heavy heart, I'm here to say I just don't seem to have the creative spirit in me anymore. Now, I don't want to announce my formal retirement from the craft or anything but I think I just need to take an extended break. Get away from the stress of doing too many things at once and focus on other things.
With that being said, however, I finally got around to making our first official How-to video (Seen below). This episode details how I make my duct tape block, it's more complicated than you think. Give it a like and leave a comment if you like it and would like to see more. I'll continue to make them if there is interest.

Did I say I was going to post regularly? Because I'm very lazy and that sounds like a commitment. Ha! Seriously though, sorry for taking so long to bring you all new content.
I forgot to mention last time, but Mal and I have been updating our Youtube channel, somewhat, more regularly than our website. We're still messing around with Lets Plays. Give them a look if you want. You can find our channel over on the left.
We also purchased a new camera as well. I plan on recording some duct tape "How-to" videos for those interested.

Gotta craft em all! I've created some new crochet Pokemon. I am very happy with how they turned out. Both were commissions. If you would like to request a commission feel free to contact us.

Happy Valentine's Day! Happy early belated Valentine's day.
I meant to get this update out on Monday, but life happens.
A Mal update!!! I've been working on a lot of projects lately. Here is a set of Disney-related dolls that were purchased on commission.

Who Likes Flowers? Mal and I have been working on these sprites for a while now.
The Floweys were created by me and Mal created the Plants vs. Zombies sprites.

Update - The Generic Title I'm doing my best to keep our New Year's Resolution, but I forgot my birthday was this week and I got lazy because of it.
This update isn't a big one. Included are 2 prints and 1 Perler sprite, as seen below.
Mal and I have an upcoming show so we'll be preparing for that so the next update may also be a small one. We'll do our best though!

Happy New Year Everyone! Now that the holidays are over, we will start posting on a bi-weekly basis, at the very least. That's our New Years resolution anyway.
I have a lot of ideas for the site with this new year. Expect more videos, including how-to videos for how we make our creations.
For this post, I've included another batch of prints. There are also some "new" Perlers as well. I say "new" because I created them months (and even years ago) but forgot to include them.

That's it! I'm done! Done with classes that is.
No more complaints about not being able to focus on the site/creations because of school now. I hope to get back to the weekly updates but I might go to bi-weekly depending on life events.
Since I slacked off again, I'm doing another mass-upload. Here are another batch of prints as well as some new Perlers (including a better sprites for an old update).
Mal and I have also have another Lets Play video. Check it out on our Youtube channel (Youtube.com/Ductilecreations).

I've been creating some new things to keep me warm this Winter. Today, I have 3 clothing related items: a crochet hat, infinity scarf and dragon-scale gloves. Check them out if you're interested.

Sorry for the lack of content I meant to update the website a few weeks ago but ended up being lazy. Then school work got in the way, much like schoolwork does. Anyway, long story short (PhD hunt - part 4), I am no longer a PhD student. I am a PhD candidate. That means I'm able to work towards my thesis now.
Because I have been slacking off so much, I'm uploading a lot of content today. Today you're getting 6 new Print uploads and several new Perler sprites. For those of you that would like to see my progress on Perler sprites, follow me on Instagram.
Mal and I have also begun recording Lets Play videos. It's just something fun for us to do and we hope you guys enjoy watching them. Take a peek at our content by clicking that Youtube link to the left.

Fall crocheted goodies are in!
We have been getting into the Fall season by making some seasonal crafts. I know the crocheted ghosts have been previously uploaded, but here are some new items.

Prints galore So I've been a busy beaver lately. Mal and I had a craft show last weekend and, as you can tell from the amount of updates this year, I've been slacking a bit.
I have been busy making, what I consider, actual prints. That is, I'm making prints without Perler sprites.
I'm going to have a new upload for the next update.

Annnnnd we're back! I finally got around to finishing the new look to the site. How do you like it? I think the simpler the better. The site is now best viewed in the Google Chrome browser. I picked a font that apparently wasn't supported by IE or Firefox and I like it so I'm not changing it. Harumph!
Anywho, Mal and I have been busy creating new crafts for our upcoming shows. Look forward to seeing those posts in the near future. Speaking of posts, I don't think I can hold to a schedule at this point. That being said, I will still make sure to update regularly.
If you were wondering where my Tetris video went, I had to take it down due to copyright claims.
Also, you may notice, if you look to the left, that we have 2 new social media links. One is for my Instagram account, where I post cool things in addition to our work, and a newly formed Patreon. Check them out if you have the time.

We've been working on some new content to add to our site/Youtube.I also have an old project that I never uploaded.

So, if you're checking out the site, you'll noticed that the home page has changed. Mal and I are working to update the entire site to this new look. Hope to have it up and running before I start school again...on Monday. Speaking of:
PhD hunt - part 3.
Spent over 80 hours in one weekend working (Friday - Monday) on a final project for 1 class. Teacher never shared my grade on it but I passed, so whatever. Ended up getting B's in both classes...somehow. B's get degrees in grad school so i'm not worried. Would have updated things sooner, but I've been recovering. I've made a few things between my Little Red Hood update, Perlers mostly, and I've started a few duct tape projects (that I haven't finished). I'll start uploading them at a later date. For now, I want to get this site looking good.
Hiiiii. I'm working on some projects in between taking care of our baby. We'll probably stop updating the site weekly when we start up again, but we will try to update it regularly with other content.

PhD hunt - part 2.
So midterms are officially over and grades are locked in. If I wasn't feeling discouraged before, I certainly am now. It's weird, the teachers at the school I'm at seem to pride themselves on tricking students rather than testing their ability to retain the knowledge they're trying to instill in us. Either way it's going to be a struggle to maintain my grades. /woeismesoapboxstory
So I wanted to take this opportunity to upload sprites from my absolutely favorite game in the entire NES library. You can find it in the April fools section...

PhD hunt - part 1.
Classes started off easy enough but as always they devolve into what essentially is a foreign language class. My notes become nothing more than a series of letters with both superscripts and subscripts, matrices, numbers and greek letters. I write down everything I see on the board but it does not seem to make a difference in learning the subject matter. Classes are happening and passing at a rapid pace. Homework is being submitted and graded... All-in-all sounds like normal engineering college classes. Hate every minute of them but you gotta do what you gotta do I guess. Hopefully won't have to take 2 next semester. Then I can focus more on crafting.
However, the show must go on. Mal has created fingerless crochet gloves for the winter season.

Happy New Year!
Hoping everyone had a safe and fun New Years. I'm back for today to post a video I recently finished. I'll just leave it here:
Update July 9, 2016: Tetris video was taken down. I'll attempt to reupload once I edit the music out.
All sculptures, amigurumi, and Perler figures made on this site are made by Jeremy and Mallory Hill, unless otherwise noted.
