Your site is full of so very much win — I am excited to have found a place that is everything I’m all about! I am “Captain Girl Geek” of girlgeekboutique.com, a hobby business I run out of my home. Creating geek-crafts is lots of fun :-) one of my favourite pieces that I’ve made is the adorable “Teensy Tiny Circuit Board Mars Rover”
Hope you like it! ^-^
I sure do Megan! it’s got a Wall-E kinda vibe that I’m enjoying very, very much!

It’s the 21st century, and I have to say, I’m pretty darn disappointed. I thought by now we’d have flying cars, and that every home would have their own personal robot servant. Until the times catch up with my unrealistic expectations, I’ll just have to go DIY.
Luckily, I won’t have to design my ‘bot from scratch, thanks to this adorable Retro Robot plushie pattern from Gulf Coast Cottage. He’s got everything I want in a robot: flexible arms, eco-friendly wind-up powers, and a fully huggable chassis.
For those of you who already have plush robot minions, you should check out the Gulf Coast Cottage Etsy shop, anyway. It’s full of the most adorable felt food and play set patterns (including a super-neat under the sea set) you’ve ever seen!
Nothing says a geeky “I love you” like a personal robot. Especially when that robot is a super-kawaii version of your favorite pop culture icon.
Etsy shop Lubu has dozens of adorable polymer clay robots fit for every nerd and movie buff, from Star Wars poster boy Vader to The Hangover’s Alan and baby Carlos. There’s even a team of awesome Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!
As if these weren’t cute enough on their own, Jenn and Tony Bot (the team behind Lubu) staged some classic movie scenes with their robots, including Return of the Jedi, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, and — my personal favorite — The Exorcist.
As Lubu’s profile promises, your eyes will be bleeding rainbows by the time you’re done taking in all the cuteness!
I was in downtown Hillsboro, Oregon last week and saw this mini-spectacle on Main St., right in front of a sandwich shop. Someone used dryer vents, cardboard, tin foil, duct tape, and a little crafty ingenuity to robotify this plain old Hillsboro Argus newspaper box! I was totally charmed, and my two-year-old LOVED it.
Who knew you could make something pretty out of old electronic components?
Pibbles takes the pieces, assembles them and adds Swarovski crystals and voila! Gorgeous and geeky jewelry appears!
It’s sure to make your fellow girl geeks jealous!
