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 visits  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?

tad 2011-06: here’s the thing…

my TAD time is spent on other things lately and i have been lagging on the actual making of things that have more than the fleeting feeling of acomplishment. just in time since my neighbor, a fellow TADer, and I will be hosting a "Thing Today" on 2/13… for me, it was originally a mid-month renewal of my ThingADay "vow" (this is my 3rd year and this was a lesson learned from the previous 2 that I could really use one of these), but I have been so slack on my things all month (except for Ann Darrow) that this may just end up being more like a kick in the butt.

speaking of lagging… i'm not only about an hour behind and it's not so much a thing, but the plan for it, rather. finished the evite for our event this coming sunday and sent it out. if you live in san francisco and want to have an in person collective sprint day, come on over!
