Blogmas 1: DIY Gift Guide

DIY Gift Guide for the Holidays, by Courtney Tomesch

I love giving and making gifts for friends and family. But I always stress out over making or getting them the perfect gift. Over the years I have made a ton of gifts and had all intentions to write up a blog post on them just never got around to it. So I'm going to post a collection of gifts I have made  over the years (linking the original tutorial so you can make the gifts too.)

San Diego Comic Con 2017

Courtney Tomesch San Diego Comic Con 2017 SDCC
    This year for San Diego Comic Con we only have Sunday passes BOO! But I still went down every day because there was something I wanted to do! Thursday, the HerUniverse Fashion Show was back and it was a amazing. The designs were great! Friday we went down to see to the Half Hour Happy Hour taping, this is my 3rd time seeing them live I always have a blast during their show. Saturday  I went to a taping of Rotten Tomatoes Your Opinion Sucks, then did some more random walking around. On Sunday was the day we could finally go in. My brother and I went to the Supernatural (a yearly tradition now) and FREAKING KANSAS OPENED THEIR PANEL. It was total unexpected and all of Hall H freaked out. It was always a fun panel the we went and walked the floor. It was so chaotic so many people there it was a pain to walk the floor. Another year complete and I hope next year I could go to all 4 days next year.

Total Solar Eclipse : Glendo, WY

     On 8.21.17, my family and I witness the Total Solar Eclipse in Glendo, Wyoming. It was the most amazing experience I've ever witnessed. I cried when totality hit. I will never forget how the sun was dimming or how the temperature dropped about 10 degrees. Or when we saw the diamond the second before complete totality and the second after it finished. I won't forget hearing the screams of excitement as we stood in darkness together staring at the moon blocking the sun. This is a moment I will never forget and a moment I hope i get to see again. My photos and video do not do this experiences justice. But I wanted to document as much as I could while still being in the moment. If you ever get a chance to see a total solar eclipse GO SEE IT! it is worth every second. I will be somewhere on the path of totality, April 8th 2024.

WWE Smackdown Live | San Diego 6.27.17

Courtney Tomesch WWE Smackdown Live San Diego CA
    In June, I went to my first WWE TV Taping. It was so much fun. I definitely like the house shows over the TV taping because its less talking and more matches and they can play off the crowd more.
One bummer going to the show is we missed the dark match - Tye Dillinger and Eric Rowan and the beginning of the show - Daniel Bryan kicking out James Ellsworth from the arena, because the shows in CA start so early and we hit all of the traffic.
     I really enjoyed the show. I totally marked out when Shane McMahon showed up. I had no clue he was going to be there. The best match on the night, hands down was the women's money in the bank match. I had goose bumps the second Charlotte Flair's music hit and during the whole match. The women headline the show and tore the roof off. I definitely had a sore throat afterwards, because I was screaming so loudly.
     We also got to see 205 Live. It's such a bummer the story lines on that show are boring. I wasn't to invested in to what was happening. But I LOVE Jack Gallagher. He's great and I was pretty stoked to see him.
     The main event of the show was a 6- man tag match. AJ Styles, Shinsuke Nakamura, and Randy Orton VS. Kevin Owens, Dolph Ziggler, and Jinder Mahal. I was a fun match but it was like 5 minutes and we didn't get enough time to see what they all could do. That is definitely a down side to this TV taping, I didn't get to see the people I wanted to wrestle really wrestle.
     I would have loved to see The New Day fight, as well as full matches from all the guys in the 6-man tag. But I can't complain to much. Not seeing these guys wrestle so the women can have a proper headlining Money in the Bank match was totally worth it for me.
     I hope to do more TV taping and of course more house shows. I have to do a raw brand show so I can see all from that brand.

DIY Gryffindor House Banner (Harry Potter)

Courtney Tomesch DIY Gryffindor House Banner (Harry Potter)

Here is how I made a DIY Gryffindor Banner! Note this DIY will take longer than 5 minutes. Just depends on how fast you are at hand sewing. I’d suggest watching Harry Potter while you do this DIY!
