    I have a 13 year old boy in my house, that shirt would be entertainingly disruptive. Giggity!

    Brilliant. I will print it out and stick it on the wall of my work. A new business, out of the ashes of a closed-down-by-big-fat-stupid-parent-company one. It’s definitely time to be starting new things.

    Instead of making things for sale on Etsy, my latest focus is in making things so I don’t spend money. It seems futile to hype myself up to keep going in a direction that clearly isn’t working.

    Does constant learning, studying and writing papers count as ‘making things’? I am always excited about the former, but physical creation – not so much.

    Either way – cheers to tinkerers and innovators – I am one of you but my media are words and ideas not nuts and bolts, but I feel a kinship nonetheless.
