Happy Valentine's Day! Or meh, it's your call.

This is what K wore to school today.


It's a Steampunk Friendship Necklace.  A couple of weeks ago, I just happened to see an Instructable on how to make a Lego heart friendship necklace.  Those little 2x2 couplers are hard to find in anything but grey, but I managed to score some used ones in a few different colors.  K wanted the black heart, she's very into black these days.  And she's big into keys, so we added the key and the lock.  You unlock the lock


And then you undo the jump ring that holds the two necklaces together


You give the side with the key to your "friend"

P1120901 copy

And you keep the side with the lock.


Much less embarrassing than wearing some stupid gold heart thing.  If you would like one, let me know and I'll put up a listing on etsy.

K didn't give her key to anyone today, she has a terrible cold and is a bit meh about the whole Valentine's thing.  She's giving out these Valentine's by Beth at shimmering and white tonight at an Anti Valentine's Day Party.

Happy Valentine's Day!  Or as K would say, meh.

It's a Pen Valentine! Seriously it's a Pen!

It's that time again!  So we thought we would repost our all time favorite Valentine for you to make for all your friends!

A few years, K and her class were suffering from a severe case of Percy Jackson Mania! K's Valentine's were greeted with near hysteria.

If you are similarly afflicted, you can make your own! You will need:

White pens, cause your labels are white.  I found some this year at Target.
Mailing labels, avery 5160
Card stock
Template for backing card
Template for labels
Clear tape

Here is the template for the labels:

Put a label on one side of each pen as shown, kinda high up, so the clear tape won't be over the label.

Here's the template for the card:

Write your name, cut out the four cards, and tape your pen in place. Tada!  You and your friends will have brains full of kelp in no time!

Happy Valentines day!

May the Odds Be Ever in Your Favor.

K made this at the library the other night.


The fabulous librarian at the Children's library is helping her teen group get ready for the Hunger Games premiere.  K's already got the bow and arrows, all she need now is the mocking jay pin.  Gold Fimo for the win!!!!
