Space Marshalls - robots

I made 3 more robots yesterday, I love how they have such distinct personalities but from the same universe. Yeah I know the one on the right is leaning, but do you realise how much of a miracle it is that they can stand up on their own anyway? The hole is centred, but the bottom edge is slightly uneven. They remind me of space marshalls with their special epaulets.

Made for each other... button botts

I have been making both owls and robots and in their midst out sprang a funny little colourful 'bot' which I did not show anyone but family because it was a bit too 'unusual'. However my niece, Emily, thought it was cool so I said, please take it away. She strung it up on a piece of string and a button she found (in lieu of a bead), and suddenly it looked great, especially with the bright clothes she was wearing. So I revisited the thought of botts, and have made two more... when I put them together they look made for each other, how corny! but you know what I mean :-)

A Cog? of Robots

Here is my army of robots, not really an army, I'm not sure what the collective noun for robots is... wikipedia reckons it's 'a cog of robots' but also says that this is spurious (false) lol I dunno, a cog sounds ok. SO here is my COG OF ROBOTS hoorah. Probably the only time they will all be together as one of them is on ebay for sale. They were all made by me out of glass, palladium leaf and pure silver mesh.

On a side note, while looking up the collective term for robots I came across a cool one to share... An Aurora of Polar bears, how great is that? yep it's great.

Web 2 thoughts

We've scratched the tip of the iceberg at work, on what web tools are out there. But at least we know it's an iceberg! I think I might even be able to get my mum interested in one or two of them.

One of the useful sites I will revisit is seomoz so that I can keep exploring the 'best' of what is out there.

RSS feeds and Podcasting

I was very happy to learn a little more about rss feeds, I've come up with some applications for using to let regular customers know when I have new owls made! hootrah!

Podcasts are great too, I've been into listening to motivational type mp3's anyway, so hopefully I can find some good podcasts on that type of topic that I can download to my player.
