I gotta say, after hearing some of my mother's horror stories, I bet she wishes she'd had one of these baby-friendly nursing necklaces from bfbeads. Designed to be durable and flexible, they'll distract your little one with shine and sliding beads and keep them close. Plus, they're made with wonderful materials, such as crystal quartz, that will make you look good too!

Veteran's Day

Well, Veteran's Day is coming up, shortly after the election, and I have to say that I am one of the unlucky ones who will not have the holiday off. However, if I did have the day off, I'd use it to catch up on some holiday gift shopping, or as my boyfriend likes to call it, Yuletide Swag. I've been making my list, and you can be sure that these lovely photo pendants from blackdrop are a top contender.

Bazaar Bizarre

Last weekend was the Maker Faire Austin. Part of the Faire was the Bazaar Bizarre, which I had a table at. While I spent most of the time at my table, I did get a chance to explore a little bit, and among the things I saw were:
  • Bat houses.
  • A rickrolling, ping-pong ball shooting robot.
  • Tasty lemon shortbread cookies.
  • Fighting robots turn on their masters.
  • Shrinky-dink demos.
  • R2D2
  • A Life-Sized Mousetrap (the game)
And all I have to say: Amazing!

Thanks to Diana of for featuring my Fleeced Necklace among her favorite picks recently. Diana is also a jeweler who made the necklace shown above. I also love the cute little cow ring you can see in her portfolio or on her flickr page.

So you're an office supply snitch, eh? Wear your spoils of the inner-office war proudly upon your ears, and let the rest of the office see your wealth!
Just don't tell your coworkers that you really got them from BlinkingMouse.
