I just got a great card from vinnie451! She recognized my avatar as being from the movie "Serenity," based on the TV show "Firefly," so she knew I'd love this:

These are the dinosaurs that one of the characters on the show liked to play with.  Grin  Thank you!

I'm glad you liked it!  I have a scan of the card if you would like me to post it. The background paper is the E section of the pest control yellow pages in the phone book.  I finally found a use for those ant stickers!  Cheesy

Yes, please post your scan.  It would be nice for people to be able to see the detail  Cheesy

Here it is:

OK, now I have photos of what Bookstorebabe sent to me!   Grin

I received a huge box, and the first thing I pulled out was this spiffy brain bag!

There was also a robot pal (he was originally going to be turned into a marionette, but it didn't work out, so she let me have the original toy).

I also found a battery, with the mysterious note that "You will need this." I needed it for this wall clock!

It features Nikola Tesla and says "There's always time... FOR SCIENCE!"   Cheesy

Then I discovered that I, too, had received a letter, informing me that Acme Armaments was sending me a complimentary kit of interstellar travel necessities. The kit has a rocket on one side and a funky fabric cover on the other:

Inside, the case is lined with silver fabric and comes full of many accessories such as a robot key ring, pens, clip-on light, note paper, button, and my own tiny hunchbacked assistant.  Wink

There were also iron-on patches to attach to my scientific traveling clothes!

Also, every traveling scientist needs an atomic flipping notebook and a robot journal to take notes in. The book at the top is an actual old electrical engineering book, which I'm thinking I may have to alter somehow later.  Wink

And why, pray tell, was Acme Armaments sending me this gift pack? It was a thank-you for ordering an X-5000 mini blaster!

I love the gun! ZAP! ZING! PEWPEWPEW!!  Grin

Thanks so much!  This was a great package.

These are pictures of the things I made for bookstorebabe. For fun I'm going to repost the "interdepartmental memo" I sent her and put in the photos as I go.  Grin

TO:      Professor Bookstorebabe
      Transylvania Polygnostic University, Louisville Campus

FROM:      Professor Radegund
      Transylvania Polygnostic University Research Expedition
      Currently transversing Outer Slobovia

DATE:      May 7

Professor, I hope this package reaches you in good form. I understand that recent scientific shipments to researchers in Australia have been unduly intercepted by customs authorities!

After our expedition's brief sojourn in the Duchy of Grand Fenwick, we passed into Ruritania and have recently entered Outer Slobovia. However, during our travels we came upon a remarkable place called Craftster Valley.  This land is the home of many artisans who engage in a variety of unconventional crafts.  I am forwarding to you some of the examples we collected, all of which have "science" as their organizing theme.  Be sure to entrust these only to the Museum of Science curators, and don't let those fools over in the Arts Department claim them!

   As an example of painted glasswork, I am sending you a small bowl decorated with stylized parameciums (paramecia? These long expeditions can be so tiring), and two votive candle holders, one emblazoned with an atomic design, and the other celebrating the remarkable number Pi.

(Paramecium bowl)

(Votive holders)

   I am also sending you a small jewelry chest, with each drawer decorated according to a different branch of the sciences. The top bears a molecular diagram, and the sides feature amorphous silica solids. It's a bit overdone, I admit, but I recall you have a liking for metallics and purples.

(Astronomy, Chemistry, Anatomy, Geology, Paleontology)

(The sides)

(Caffeine molecule on top)

   Inside some of the drawers I have included samples of jewelry a geologic lapel pin, plus another pin made from the circuit board of a dollar store mini radio transformed with small cabochons.

(It made a better pin than a radio anyway)

   Finally I have enclosed a purse suitable for your own expeditions. As you can see, the fabric theme is "The Space-Time Continuum," and it's been enhanced with light- and wind-generating mechanisms. Inside you will find a convenient holder for a few test tubes and a matching notebook for recording your observations.

(The outside - time fabric)

(The inside - space fabric)

(The wind and light generators!)

(The test tube holder)

(The notebook, with extra pocket for holding research funds)

You may also find a couple of extra items in the package here and there.

("Test Tube" candy that I found in the store)

(Small sample bottles)

I do hope you find them amusing and useful!  I shall send this package to you via the next post office we encounter. Give my regards to the department secretary.

We've had an alien abduction, and now... an Android!

I received this from crescentfresh.  Grin  I especially like the plug coming out the back of its head.

card-crushing cats curiously contemplating chinese calligraphy!
Did you draw the symbols in the background too? they are just lovely.

It's actually thin paper from a booklet I got at a Chinese import store. The man said it was for practicing your calligraphy on.  Smiley

And I got a card too -- from FicklePegasus!

It's a beach ball bikini bellyflop card!   Grin  If only it were that kind of weather up here right now...

20  Super Reflective Push Light in CHALLENGE 26 ENTRIES by Radegund on: April 01, 2008 04:42:14 PM
I wandered through the dollar store looking for inspiration, and I found this poor plain white push light just begging to be decorated.  Wink  I went for accessories that were shiny and would help reflect the light.

Source materials:

Push light, batteries for push light, and aluminum pie tins:

Two packs of buttons (only one pack used), some shiny metallic tape, and some translucent stickers:

And one of those bath puffs:

Glue and thread from my stash were also used.

The result: a much more interesting (but still functional) push light!

I cut a hole in the pie tin so it would go around the push light, and used the silver tape to tape in in place. The back of the push light sticks out so you can still get at the battery compartment. I glued the buttons around the edge of the light, and put a strip of the red metallic tape around the inner rim of the pie tin.  I put the translucent stickers on the light itself.  That bath puff unrolled into a tube of netting several feet long and I used that as the outer decoration.

Here it is in the dark:

I punched holes in the side like one of those old punched-tin lanterns:

I even put it to use during the recent "Earth Hour" when people were turning their lights off!  Grin
