Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery

I have to admit, I’m more than a little confused by Mark Frauenfelder’s contribution to Mac|Life’s “Apple Products of the Future” article. Specifically, I’m astounded that nowhere in the article does it give attribution to Makerbot, despite drawing liberally from Makerbot’s design. Makerbot The imaginary iMake I’m not sure if Frauenfelder himself directed the “finished […]

Liveblogging a Comic Con

Today and tomorrow I’m selling Tinysaurs at King Con, a comic and animation convention in Brooklyn. Unlike other shows I’ve done this year, I have neither my intrepid booth-mate Sara nor my faithful sherpa boyfriend Chris to keep me company. It’s just me sitting at my booth, trying not to go stir crazy (things are […]

One kitten forward, three kittens back

On Tuesday morning we took our foster kitten Vader back to Liberty Humane Society. At over 2 lbs he was ready to be fixed and adopted out. He seems to be completely recovered from his surgery and was climbing all over his cage like a monkey. The shelter staff said his size and personality should […]

I’m also preparing for Crafty Bastards, a huge awesome craft show in Washington DC. The past few weeks have been spent scaling up my production. It’s something I […]

Kitten Tragedy

Yesterday we took the kittens in for their shots and deworming. The vet said they looked healthy, and while they were irritated by the journey in the cat carrier, they were doing well. Unfortunately when we got home last night, the dark grey kitten had passed away. We’re not sure exactly why, it could have […]

Kitten Foster Care

 Last Thursday I went to volunteer orientation at Liberty Humane Society. In addition to needing volunteers to do things like clean cages and walk dogs, they mention needing kitten fosters. A shelter isn’t a great place for any animal, it’s noisy and stressful, but kitten in particular tend to pick up illnesses, so they’re always […]

The class is geared towards folks with some basic HTML knowledge, but no prior PHP experience is necessary. Occasionally folks ask if I teach any advanced PHP classes. I’ve offered a few […]

Belts!

Today the belts I ordered arrived, so sometime next week I’ll be posting my new belt buckles on Etsy and 1000 Markets. The buckles, which are still in the prototyping phase, are the same laminated-acrylic style as the Hipster Pendants I made a bit ago. Most of the belts are black/brown, but there are also some red, yellow, blue, […]
