For the last couple years, I’ve sold dice countdown calendars. I’ve got the dice to do it again, eight calendars’ worth, but I am trying to decide if I’m going to branch out from the traditional papercraft box. It’s easy to assemble, it fits exactly in a USPS Priority Flat Rate Small box, it fits […]
Working on a tutorial. Ironically, taking pictures of each step distracted me such that I left out a step (the side loop). Update: the tutorial is done. I left out the side loop on the next one as well. Clearly this is not a thing people with ADHD should do.
Continuing in the vein of where to post so other people can follow you with a feed reader: Pixelfed. It’s like Instagram, but decentralized – like email servers, you are on a particular domain but are connected to users on other domains in pretty much the same way you are to users on your domain.

For a couple weeks I’ve been meaning to get back to the bold jumper, but life (and paying work) has intervened. So here’s what I’ve got. The original design was for a 4×4 hoop. The body maxes it out in length, and the legs max it out in length and width. You put doubled pipe […]
It shouldn’t that big a deal, but I’m very pleased about it. (And it always is that big a deal.) I mean, I’ve finished a lot of things, but “eight more tiny dragons” isn’t anything worth blogging about, though it’s nice for the business. And it’s not any of the poseables in various states of […]
Following The Brands on Facebook is obviously only part of the equation – you also need to be able to talk to other normal folks, and post your own stuff. You can do this by setting up an account on any of the sites that still have feeds. If you’ve got a friend group you […]
Between special orders and the Wichita trip (where I took the tablet but no laptop), and the fact that font creation changes in the upcoming Ink/Stitch, I’ve suspended my Inktober project. I could install a newer version out of the repo, but I feel like messing with my install when I’m already behind on stocking […]
I didn’t want to make too much of a fuss about it because the house was sitting empty this trip, but we spent last week in Wichita for Carl’s mom’s funeral. Right before it, I got a request for 45(!) tiny dragons. That was not doable even without a trip in the middle (I’m coming […]
Last week I explained how to use a feed reader to get something like a Facebook timeline without Facebook. Today I’m going to go a little deeper into what it looks like when you follow a particular type of feed: an Etsy shop. Of course I’ll use mine as an example. Following an Etsy shop […]
These things are sharp.
