tad 2011-???-20: Weekend Survey

did not quite conquer iOS (yet), but rocked Sketchup like a mofo (that's the coffee talking at 2AM PT).

pics of successes when i get permission to post.

(pssst – you know who you are if you happen to be reading this – can i post pics of the sketchup i sketched up?)

tad 2011-10 & -11: Nothing To See Here

TAD 2011-10 crafting = epic fail this week, but i have been getting my geek on (yayy!). spent my TAD time yesterday taking an electronics class, so nothing to show for it (wait – is there a way to see where ohm's law is now -finally- etched into my brain?). who wants to send me some techshop giftcards?

TAD 2011-11.1 also still working on the followup to ann darrow, but i have made several beginnings now and still unhappy with the results so i can't show you that either.

TAD 2011-11.2 I like keeping my hair outta my face, but haven't yet found a place that doesn't make me feel like i've wasted precious time for a haircut and i struggle parting even with $10 for one. so, once upon a time i bought some haircutting scissors and between my 2-3x/year haircutting visitsĀ  probably why I haven't found a good place, yet), i trim my bangs to feel like i got one anyway. it's always a little crooked, but now i can see you better.

tad 2011-09: let’s call it kirigami

i may not have another thing after a busy day today, so here’s my contingent thing (not 30 minutes of work, but it’s what i’ve got right now and maybe all day) … the battery-powered charger i made yesterday fits neatly into this altoids box, but you have to cut out the bottom end for the usb connector to fit through. i traced out the shape of the connector, added space to clear the lid and used some metal cutters (much bigger than i needed, but it was all that was around the house) to cut it and some pliers to bend it in place. in the process of seeing if it would fit, i accidentally broke the connecting leads for the battery, so i will need to resolder that later. meanwhile, tada!

tad 2011-07 & 08: recharged

day 7: i may have hit my low point yesterday – there's always one day during the Thing A Day sprint when i just have nothing. hopefully that was it. i did only sit down at about 11:45 to make something, so that probably had something to do with it…anyway, i looked at a room full of supplies and nothing. moving on…

day 8: went to make:sf tonight to practice my soldering skills to make one of these – it's a portable charger for my phone; takes 2 AA batteries, rechargable OK. got a tour of Tech Shop SF while i was there – this was how i envisioned my dreamhouse, actually. anyone want to gift me a yearlong membership?
