Another thing I have zero documentation of creating. This was for my girlfriend for our handmade only christmas gifts. She likes steampunkish themes without so much retarded non-functional-but-functional-looking-stuff and is more just into the palette and aesthetics associated with steampunk. I bought gears online (which I thought were 5 times larger) and copper plates (which I also thought were significantly larger) and ended up slapping this thing together.
Personally, I hate it. She says she likes it. It was fun to experiment with jewelry though.
Shit Box Car: Attempt 1
So I had it in my head to make a toy car with a motor on it.
I worked out a simple design in my head, and then used some wood and cardboard to make the whole thing.
It didn't work. The design did, but it wasn't strong enough to move the entire vehicle itself. Video below:
I plan to attempt this project again.

More Clay Shit
My mom saw some craft idea to make an ornament with a silver spoon and a santa face made out of clay, so she made me do it.
Bought the spoon at Goodwill, it was so tarnished it looked like brass until I cleaned it. Made the face, baked it, then sent it to my grandmother, the amazing painter. Just got it back today and glued it onto the spoon.
Brand New Look
Sup dudes. This is the new look of the site. There is a little more functionality in the Carousel-like feature than before. It's pretty easy coding stuff, the most annoying is replacing stuff in the carousel.
You can also see the "I Heart New Shit" pic in the right corner. Clicking it brings up the two most recent blog posts. Staying on the shit list is considered an honor, and gives you the right to make fun of whoever isn't on it at the time.
Other than that, just keep making shit. I am going to wipe the floor with you fegs I don't even know why I'm writing this.
