Amazing textile made from spider silk

I saw this article on Gimundo about an amazing textile woven from spider silk. Each fiber in the piece consists of 96 strands of spider silk and over a million spiders were used in the gathering of the silk. Don't worry, though. The spiders were caught, milked and then released back into the wild. Check out the page and video on the American Museum of Natural History page here.

So I haven't posted here in forever...I guess that woul dbe because I got a "real" job and haven't had time to devote to Nerdbomber.

We will be at the Funky Finds Spring Fling Saturday, April 25th for everyone in the Ft. Worth Area.  I don't feel ready, but it's a little late to be worrying about it at this point.  We're going to have fun and roll with it!  See you there!

It's a new year and we're hoping to do a lot with Nerdbomber in the coming months. I'm adding new items to the shop, so please keep checking in.

We're also expanding out to other online venues. You know about our Etsy shop. I've blogged about our shop on Funky Finds, too. Recently I opened a shop on Artfire, so we'll see how that goes. Each shop has some slightly different items, so look at each one. Each shop offers different ways to shop and different features. It'll be interesting to see how it goes this year.

Also, our independent website is up. For the time being it is just a hub for the existing sites we're on. But one of the goals we have for the year is to have it expanded out to include all our online shops and to include more information about us.

There are a lot of new things coming up, so be on the lookout!

This is a cool video about some of the craft projects at Maker Faire.  These were mostly from teh demonstration section of the fair, which, unfortunately, I didn't get to see much of.  If you watch cloesely, though, they have a shot of our button board.

We're relaxing a bit before Jingle Bash.  Well, that isn't entirely true.  We're both working hard on other things (work, school, family...).  We hope everyone will come out to the Sons of Herman Hall on November 22 to check out the Jingle Bash, it is going to be realy fun.

Hello everyone, long time no see. We're back from Maker Faire Austin and we had a blast. There was tons to see and do. Maybe next year we'll get out away from the booth more and participate in some of the activities.  You can see my photos of the event here in my flickr pool.

We're listing a lot of new items in the Nerdbomber Etsy shop. Most of what we're listing currently are Book purses and cards. We hope to list more cell phone charms and small zipper pouches, too.

Our next show is the Etsy Dallas Jingle Bash on November 22. This is at the Sons of Herman Hall from 3-10 pm. Buying handmade for the hollidays is the cool thing to do. You want to be cool, don't you?

400 Sales?

We had a small spurt of sales this weekend, making 399 total sales.  Does anyone want to push us up to 400 sales?  If someone reads this blog, makes a purchase and puts,"Nerds Rule!" in the message to sellers, I'll send you a special "400th Sale Spectacular Surprise."  

Ok, so the rules again are:
1. Read this blog. (check!)
2. Purchase the 400th item from our Nerdbomber Etsy store.
3. Write "Nerds Rule!" in the message to sellers.
4. Win!

Ok, so it's not really a clear picture, more of a tease. Lisa ordered our vinyl banner and for some reason this makes me feel like we're official. We've got signage! This banner will be gracing our booth at the Bazaar Bizarre in the Austin Maker's Faire. The event is going to be tons of fun, anyone in and around Austin should go.

I've been very busy keeping up with school, so it's been hard to post updates on the blog. I know, it's been a month! If I had updated, it would have been, "Read a bunch of stuff for school. Didn't sew a darn thing."

This weekend I did carve out time to finish up some last minute items (apathy bird pouches and book clutches). They should be done on the weekend then I can get back to reading for school before NEXT weekend.

People who know me know that I'm a worrier. I've been pretty nervous about the BB. We've done shows before, but this will be by far the biggest. Are we bringing enough product? Enough business cards? Are our prices reasonable? What if the weekend is a bust?

The only thing I can really do is my best and learn from this experience. Thankfully, Lisa doesn't get worked up like I do. She'll keep me grounded. We're a wonderful nerdy team. See you at the Bazaar Bizarre!
