Robot Love

Luvbot

How about a little robot love for Valentine’s Day? With just under a month to go, you have just enough time to whip up something for your geeky sweetheart (or yourself!)

I found several cute robot projects so I thought I would do a mini round-up. First we have this adorable Luvbot (pictured above), a knitting pattern available from Anna at Mochimochiland.

Next we have the cute Cara the amigurumi robot from Rachel at CrochetSpot (subscribe to her newsletter to get the pattern for free, plus get a heads up on free patterns every week!)

Another fun amigurumi robot project from Bubblegumbelles on Etsy:

Here’s an advanced-beginner cross-stitch project with a little binary code to say “I love you” in robot – Alicia Watkins has the cross-stitch kit all prepped for you on Etsy.

Then finally we have this fun crochet robot lovey blanket from Sarah at Repeat Crafter Me, so your favorite wee one can cozy up and dream of robot besties!

Eyebot Minions

Eyebot army As soon as I saw these little guys, I feel in mini-robot love. Though probably not technically robots, I’m sure you’ll agree they’re quite lovable. Hand-crafted by self-proclaimed “wood butcher” Colin Johnson, these pieces are made of reclaimed cedar wood and dolls’ eyes. Would you have guessed they were made from wood?

They make me think of little Minions from Despicable Me, or even the little alien dudes from the Toy Story trilogy. What do they make you think of? How would you use or display them?

Make your own robot. (or as least decorate your own)

Who doesn’t want their own personal robot? Well check out this cute little guy, Wendell.

I love that he comes as a blank slate, so you can decorate him any way you want. He’s also open source, so you can program him to do your bidding.

 

And check him out dressed as Michael Jackson doing the thriller dance.

Geek Love

 

I celebrated my 8 year wedding anniversary yesterday. Bronze is the traditional 8 year anniversary gift, which made me think about Steam Punk weddings, chemistry themed weddings, robot weddings, etc.  I still am hooked on looking at wedding ideas, and here are a few I think I would use if I were to get married again, (to the same guy, of course.)

For the robot love, check out this amazing robot cake topper, from Etsy shop buildersstudio . We have one on our mantel, and I love seeing it everyday.

 

Who needs a rose, when you could adorn your lapel with a Lego man. Check out these cool Lego boutineers from off beat bride.

 

 

 

 

Check out these awesome robot wedding shoes also from Off Beat Bride.

 

 

 

 

 

 

And if you’re more into games than robots or Legos, check out this board game wedding cake. (that I made for my friends Deb and Brad.)
