Lately, I've been making lots of tote bags. Like these in the
attached photos. Most of these either sold in the MassArt holiday sale or became holiday gifts for my family. But one of my friends did not want a tote bag for the holiday, so instead I used all the scraps from sewing to make a collage fabric painting for her.
Rebecca Watson over at Skeptical Robot asked me to make a Happy Monkey card for Pharyngula for this year's holiday! Awwesome!!
You can buy some here!
Here are some bobblehead designs of the Skeptics Guide to the Universe crew that I drew up. Rebecca Watson liked them and even is selling them over at Skeptical Robot in a button set that I put together. My cat Becky even likes them. A couple of images here. Here are the designs. The print file. What the back looks like. Skeptics Guide to the Universe or SGU (not to be confused with Stargate Universe) is a weekly science podcast. They are pretty awesome. Here is the blurb from their site. The Skeptics' Guide to the Universe is produced by SGU Productions, LLC - dedicated to promoting critical thinking, reason, and the public understanding of science through online and other media. The first episode of the SGU podcast went online on May 4th, 2005. It soon became a popular science podcast, and remains one of the most popular science podcasts on iTunes. http://www.theskepticsguide.org Check them out! You can get the buttons here.
My husband finished this app awhile ago, but I never got around to getting this post up. I made the icon for him. This game is surprisingly hard. It seems to be a cross between othello and checkers. Hasami shogi is a simplified variant of Japanese chess (shogi). The name translates from the Japanese for 'scissors' or 'crab claw' and 'Japanese chess'.
These Chinese looking dragons are an Okinawan tradition. One will see them placed in pairs on rooftops and gates to houses. Shisa are protectors. They are believed to protect from evil spirits. The open mouth one wards off evil spirits and the closed mouth one keeps the good spirits in. Pretty neat huh!
