[Insert Scathingly Brilliant Title Here]
I fail spectacularly at journal titles...
In which I make a thing

Modern Times
Oh hey. I made a thing.

I bought a pattern for a Star Trek busy book (or "quiet book") here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/83142930/star-trek-inspired-quiet-book-pattern

And then I finally got around to making it.
Pictures are HERE: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10107912851339420.1073741832.13953311&type=1&l=18939c0ce0

The album should be public. It was the easiest way to keep posting photos as I make new pages. I shared it on Facebook because, well...it took a lot of work and it's cool and I kind of wanted more than just D and N to see it.

When I get on a tear about something, I can really become absorbed. So I designed my own pages for TOS and more for TNG. I added more (mostly female) characters. Making-with-hands projects like this are super soothing and relaxing for me. The problem is time-time-time. I get absorbed in doing this and everything else falls away. Or, rather, everything else that could go in that little slot of spare time between when the baby goes to bed and when *I* must go to bed. If I had full days, or even a few full afternoons, the job would go much more expediently.

It's pretty cool though. There are two discrete books: TNG and TOS. I'll post pictures when they're all done-done and bound and such (TNG is almost to this state).

And I might have started designing a Monty Python book, too.

Adorkable! If only you'd also crafted an icon in which Midget had more thumbs

AHEM please don't

Ha! "Adorkable" ... I am totally adding that to my Geekcabulary. :-D

P.S. I still so want these! :D  Your crafty-craftiness never ceases to impress.

I might pimp out the patterns I created, but I'm not sure--some of them are based on the other, original-not-mine patterns. I don't feel quite right about it.

Fair 'nough, but if you give credit where credit is due . . . maybe then it's just contributing Joy to the Geekiverse?

I could always just ask her, too. I sent her a link to the finished project (she included her email in the pattern and an enthusiastic "Show me what you did!"). She seemed pretty nice about it.

I can definitely publish the Monty Python stuff (in the works), though. That's all my work.
