I got to make stuff for Kate, who wrote that she loves her 4-year-old son, dancing, and music.
I decided to send her a sampler pack of my floppy disk record player cards. I took lots of pictures along the way and wrote up a tutorial about making the cards a few days ago. And whaddya know, it got featured on MAKE magazine's blog! So hello to the bazillion new visitors who came this way via MAKE.
I also decided to include a little something for Kate's son, Teddy. What do 4-year-olds like? Their names! I engraved Teddy's into a little piece of stone tile and put magnets on the back so he'll have a special way to put his artwork on the fridge.
Kate lives in Massachusetts and I live in Oregon, so I decorated the package with cutouts of all of the states in between.
I engraved the stone with a sandblaster*. This is a photo of the tiles and the stencil I used. I'll be posting more in the near future about the sandblasting process.
*Thanks to Victory Stone Engraving, a.k.a. my dad.
