Weekend Project: I Just Love Christmas

I love it like crazy! It's mostly likely because it's also my birthday on the 26, but I can't get enough of all the christmas lights and decorations. I love being able to work on Michigan Ave in Chicago during the holidays and seeing all the stores lit up on my way home. And even though all those christmas songs are playing all the time on the radio now, I still love it!

Unfortunately the puny, little tree at Daley Plaza was disappointing, but we got to sample all the yummy food at Chriskindlmart this year. Although I probably should have waited to go till later and the crowds die down, it was still as tasty as ever!

Here's some more Christmas inspiration:

A cup of Christmas water up on my Etsy! All this crocheting and filling orders is definitely keeping me busy! I stuck my hand in these pictures as a homage to my old dreams of becoming a hand model. Unfortunately that never panned out, mostly because doing research is much more fulfilling, and I dont think I can get away with not cleaning or doing my dishes.

Only a few weeks left! Watch out for Valentine's Methanes!

Tis the Season

...for Christmas methanes!

They make awesome ornaments for your beautifully geek'd out tree!

So I made my lightbox, which is great...but now I need a bright, adjustable desk lamp...almost there!

Cup O Tea

Phew! I'm so glad I got to make a couple shipments of molecules today! It definitely feels good to see some of my guys get sent out to find new homes! I will try to keep up with the molecule making!

I guess a good follow-up to yesterday's excitement is to show my cup O' tea. Although I feel its a far inferior version to the water, I always thought tea would be a cute idea.

I tried my best to represent a molecule holding a tea leaf inside a smaller tea cup, but I do think I'll have to play with the proportions a bit more before its Etsy-able. Next: water holding coffee beans?

I do have to apologize for my shoddy photography in posting those methanes yesterday. Unfortunately the daylight left me before I was able to get some decent shots so I just had to bear with the yellow light. I do believe its time to build a handy light box!! I hope it's as easy as it looks online!

Etsy's Facebook!

Zomgz! So it seems like I walked into work today with a pleasant surprise to several Etsy Convo's about how my Cup O'Water is currently being featured on Etsy's Facebook page! Woot!! Now while I'm totally shocked, honored, excited, and happy that this has happened....I am also utterly embarrassed that I let my blog and Etsy shop kind of dwindle. So to all the new visitors: HAI! I'm sorry there is nothing new in the past few months, and I'll try to get my geek on!

I will be going home after work and posting my methanes that were just sitting around for a week or so right away!

And special thanks to Autumn2May for her feature and tweeting. Please visit her blog at
