I love to make them and I love to use them.
I’m always on the lookout for cool ideas – if I were making a list this would be at the top.

We were strolling the grounds of the Real Goods Solar Living Institute located in Hopland, CA this afternoon and eventually wandered into the gift shop. There are loads of amazing things and among them – a working tin can robot!
I love getting Christmas cards – I love it so much I want to marry it.
