vincenvanbuck - Those are the first books I ever picked up in Japanese!!  It was fun to see how things like "muggle" were translated. Smiley

roler, I think we are related! Grin Currently my dining room (which is where the freezer will go for now) is the repository for my laundry because I am in the process of emptying the bedroom so it can be painted, and the bedroom was the landing spot for all of the stuff from three other rooms while they were being painted. The other landing spot is the living room, so you're right, it's definitely a motivator! Today, in the dining room, I'm filling 3 bins (sweaters, sheets/blankets, summer clothes). Then, I'm going to get all of the yarn out of the living room and break down cardboard boxes for recycling. And pickle some beets and make a casserole. And do laundry. I've already started on the beets and laundry! Now, I have to go and get the empty bins (which are upstairs in the hallway). Baby steps! I just have to take 10,000 of them this week Smiley

Thanks, Ludi!

Hey fellow Nerds, this is not for a prompt in the Nerd Battles specifically, but I figure this bunch of people may be some of the best to help me with a nerdy problem I'm having.  (Is it OK to ask for inspiration help and advice in this thread?  If not, feel free to ignore this!)

I got these awesome plastic Tetris pieces in an old game at a garage sale recently, a dollar for a big ol' set of them, determined to make some nerdy crafts out of them (quarter for size comparison):



But now I'm finding myself stumped as to what exactly to do with them!  My first thought was pendants, but as you can see they don't have a flat back for attaching a bail (the fronts and backs look exactly the same), and I don't have any tools capable of drilling a hole in them (not actually even sure what would do that).  I was thinking of various ways to decorate/embellish them too, but I don't want to hide the texture too much (with the individual square outlines), because then they wouldn't need to have been Tetris pieces in the first place; I could have used any old thing to begin with. 

Any ideas of how to keep them recognizable as Tetris pieces, but still make them into cool pendants?  How about other crafts, since I've got lots of these guys?  Any ideas at all would be super welcome!! XD

Excellent nerdy yard sale find! Can you fill in one or two of the squares in the back with resin so you have something to attach the bail to? Or, can you take a really hot pin or small nail and sort of drill it through the back "lip" and attach a jump ring (or stick a head pin through it and make a loop)?

Absolutely jealous over those Tetris pieces.  Great find!

Perhaps you could mount them on something that could have a bail attached? Small piece of wood or something?

Thanks for the ideas!  Yeah, I think I'll try sticking something to the back to stick a bail to; I'm actually not where when I'll get to it but I'll try to post the results here when I work something out! Smiley
