Floppy Disk Laptop Bag

Floppy Disk Laptop BagWho just got a new MacBook?!  That’s right…. this girl!!!   Naturally, that means it is time to outfit my new toy with decals, and cases, and accessories (oh my!)  So strolling the internets for new things to buy, I found this laptop bag made out of floppy disks.  A-mazing!  Although I don’t know how heavy or bulky it is to carry about, it sure looks really awesome…  Great work Stanislav

Just for the record, the disks in this case total 60.48MB  :)

Shut up, Wesley!

Wil Wheaton was my first crush. I guess that’s not really accurate: Wesley Crusher was my first crush; I had no idea who played him. I watched Star Trek: The Next Generation with my dad from the very beginning. Then suddenly there was this kid who was brilliant and pretty cute, and I got to see him every week. *Sigh* I was young and didn’t know how much everyone hated him. Fast forward 20 years and just about everyone knows who Wil Wheaton is, thanks to The Big Bang Theory, but only the TNG fans know “Shut up, Wesley!”

Cassey made this awesome cross stitch for her husband and posted it on her flickr. It’s her third time doing cross stitch and it looks way better than my third cross stitch did. Captain Picard really looks angry!

My husband and I are HUGE Star Wars Geeks so I wanted to make something for our home, that I could give him for valentines day….  thus this framed embroidery piece was born!! A Geeky Sweetheart original.

If you don’t recognise the quote, educate yourself.

There are plenty of work-in progress pictures on my facebook page, and I’ve made my pattern available for free download on my blog. All the usual rules apply, don’t rip my work off and sell it on etsy, but do make one for your own home! and please let me know if you use it! I wanna see! The only thing I don’t give you is the bumble-bee, sorry, I drew that freehand.
