Drive By!

Dr. Mad Scientist has to hop on the 'puter to input progress reports, so I have to make this short.

Two more things I accomplished this weekend--


What is it?


Why it's a...


Gift card holder!

As part of a household that shells out money for school supplies from their own pockets so public school kids get a decent education, I like to give Chunky's teachers Staples giftcards.

Pretty damn boring gift, but I'm hoping this little reindeer makes it a bit less boring.

Finally I turned some of the little Mochi Mochi pencils I knit last year into magnets. I'll probably give a couple of those to Chunky's teacher this year too.


Like the picture? That's a portrait one of Dr. Mad Scientist's students did of him.

I think he did a great job. With the exception he gave him too much hair--hahahahahaah!

those are cute magnets! I've knit the magnet inside of the little things before and it works well if you have those tiny strong magnets.

I like the reindeer! That's a great teacher gift. Thoughtful and useful. And cute.

Good grief, my eyes need to be examined! At first I thought the reindeer was Winnie the Pooh, thus being a treat holder for Moochie on the tree. Sigh.... Both are great ideas by the way!
