Weekly Geekly 7

Cardboard Crafts come up as a thing when you have kids. Between kids asking to do crafts, cub scouts and school projects it is good to have seem resources. A great place for crafts that might actually end up as usable instead of garbage is on the ikat blob. See item here, here, here etc.

I meant to put up a few pictures of recent projects
New DVD shelves, now to resolve the clutter of where they were previously stored.

Meat pies, The crust did not survive as well as it should. But for a first attempt not bad, and reasonable to taste.

Weekly Geekly 6

A lot of fun things recently

By Source, Fair use,

With three young kids it is always fun to come across a good show that everyone enjoys. Miraculous Ladybug certainly is that. Sadly it has only gotten through half it's first run in English and is being "rescheduled." US Nick Page General Site There are also fan subs on YouTube as Korea, France, Brazil etc are all still airing new episodes.

On the Forgotten Realms map there is a work called Rawlinswood. As my last name is Rawlins, I figure it would be fun to write some adventures that could be set there. Of course in 5th edition they renamed it to Dunwood. Ah well. The best resource I have found is on realmshelp

Weekly Geekly 5

Recently I have been trying to revise my own personal schedule to get more of what I want done. Probably has something to do with being busy, going to a Lean Leadership course etc.

A bit of DIY recently, my dad had a large box with foam inserts. Not sure what I will do with them yet, but now I have three sizable flat foam panels. They hang nice on some nails the previous homeowner had in the garage. I finished the shelves I was building with my son for DVD's so I will take pictures and post them later.

Weekly Geekly 4

There was a great post I found on Dungeons and Dragons prep from GeekDad. The most useful thing about the article was the pointer to Trello a website that works like a whiteboard/index card layout.

I am a bit scatterbrained when it comes to software and tools. But Trello looks like it will be a solid addition to keeping track of things for the Blog, my current campaigns and other personal projects.

I love my cool refillable pen inks. This brand is a lot of fun to use.

I also ran across the website where you ship used books to others who want to read those books that don't fit on your shelves anymore.

Which reminds me to look up plans to build some new bookshelves.

Weekly Geekly 3

So 12 days of 8-12 hours a day at work will mess up the schedule.

I really like the Sakura pigment set of pens. I would love to get a set like this. But at 100+ at Jet Pens it is unlikely to be something I get.

Weekly Geekly 2

So here we are at week two of my recently weekly wanderings.

Dungeonesque: a cool indigo campaign using the new Open Gaming License for
Dungeons and Dragons. It would be awesome to have several copies for new players as it is always hard to have enough players handbooks.
