Where's my Instruction Manual?

"Made from over 1,000 LEGO® brand bricks, this unique lamp will add pizazz to any room! Make it a focal point in a modern or mid-century decor. Modern not your thing--ask for one in classic black, it goes with everything!

If a red lamp isn't you cup of tea, message me and I'll make one just for you in whatever color you choose. Some colors cost more than others, so there may be a slight increase in cost. Please allow up to 12 weeks for assembly (aka, LEGO® gathering, believe it or not, I don't ALWAYS have thousands of LEGO® bricks laying around ).

Lamp shade NOT INCLUDED. It's just too cumbersome to ship, and everyone likes different styles. I don't want to charge you more for shipping, or send you a busted-up shade.

Just to buy the pieces directly from the LEGO® company would cost over $300, at $175 this FULLY ASSEMBLED lamp is a steal!"

You Keep Your Tic-Tacs Where?

"The Lugnut Pill /Mint Case consists of a 1.5" hard-chromed lugnut, a stamped aluminum cap threaded to match, a galvanized steel D-ring, and a 1/16" thick black EPDM O-ring to provide a watertight seal and resistance-locking of the seated cap.

Shipping to the United States is free. Ships in a 3x3" poly bag, in a 3x3x1" cardboard box, in a padded mailer.

This product was featured on p.34 of the August/September 2009 issue of ReadyMade magazine (“Light Industry”).

Although it is impossible to get lug nuts manufactured to food-grade standards, both the nuts and the caps are cleaned very rigorously before the cases are assembled, per the following protocol: Lug nuts and caps are hot-sonicated for an hour in a strong solution of dishwashing detergent in kitchen tap water, followed by two more hour long “hot rinse” sonications in carbon-filtered tap water. Parts are then washed in USP 91% isopropyl alcohol and dried overnight at 100C."

"This hand-made crib/lap size quilt (about 39" x 49") is the result of color nerdery in full swing. Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black (or Key) are process colors - kind of like primaries but used to mix all other colors in print media. The fabrics in this quilt are all hand dyed colors that were specifically mixed to be CYMK. Yay for color nerds!

My quilts are all 100% hand made by me. I dye the fabric with my own dye recipes, using a very scientific method based on weight of fabric and weight of dye to get accurate, reproducible results with minimal dye waste. I then piece the tops, machine quilt them, and hand sew the binding. This quilt is made of kona cotton. It is a one of a kind piece meant to be used and loved. Or hung on the wall and admired. Whichever.

Materials and Care:
In this quilt I used kona cotton for the top, backing, and binding. The batting is Warm & Natural needled cotton, made with no chemicals, glues, or resins.
I use fiber reactive MX dyes on cotton. The resulting colors are wash fast and relatively light fast, but should be kept out of direct sunlight.

My quilts are all machine washable and pre-shrunk. The dyes are color fast which means they won't bleed onto anything else and they won't run in the wash. Machine was cool water, tumble dry low. They can be ironed if you like a smooth quilt, but I like them fresh out of the dryer - all fluffy and warm.

Custom Orders:
Love this quilt but want it in a different size? I can't guarantee that colors will be exactly the same from quilt to quilt - that is the nature of hand-dyeing fabric. However, I can come very close and each quilt remains one of a kind. Contact me for sizing and prices.

Want to hang it on the wall? Let me know and I'll sew a sleeve on the back."

The Truth

Who doesn't love coffee and dessert after a great meal, or on a lazy afternoon?

These magnets tell you what you're really eating:

Vanillin - primary component in pure vanilla extract
Theobromine - primary alkaloid in cocoa and chocolate
Sucrose - aka regular old sugar

and of course,
Caffeine - the life-giving molecule in coffee and tea

That cute organic chemist in your life will appreciate these magnets, as will your slightly geeky friends.

Each GeekMagnet is hand-assembled from a clean and shiny glass marble, sturdy cardstock, and a strong rare earth neodymium magnet. The glue used is the good stuff, so your GeekMagnets are solidly constructed. Note that the glass marbles I use might have bubbles or other imperfections, giving these magnets a nice organic feel to go with the molecules represented.

I designed and printed the graphics myself so this unique quirky set can only be found here."
