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.

There's so much awesome stuff!!! I am having a little swap anxiety right now.

I love so many things... the periodic table blanket, the aries yarn art, the happy/grumpy cloud and heart tote,
the decoupaged box  that needs to come live at my house,  the spice holder test tubes, the DNA scarf(I will make myself one of these someday), the paramecium bowl...so much awesomeness in this swap.

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.

Gak!  The tooth coin purse is adorable!!!!

GrannysAnnie- I am sooooooooooooo glad that you like everything!  I hope that the adhesive on the barrettes is holding up.  If it isn't let me know, and I'll send you my back-up plan!  LOL!

This swap has been amazing!  Thank you Anarcticraft for being a wonderful organizer!

The adhesive is holding up great!  I was actually surprised that you mentioned you had problems with it, because it seems really strong to me Smiley

Thank YOU, bigfatroses, and also a big thanks to you, Anarcticraft!

The screenname says it all - I'm my Granny's Annie!

How did I miss this thread so far? What a lot of great science crafts!  And now I can add to it....the fantastic package that Buns sent me!

Everything all together!

fluid dynamics art coasters, inspired by the Gallery of Fluid Motion

a cool shirt with a quote from Edmund Halley, who hypothesized that the earth was hollow and filled with concentric spheres of existence:

and my favorite, crocheted Lorenz equations to use as potholders or hot pads Smiley

Thanks for the great package, Buns!  Kiss
