Here’s something else I’m playing with, PUZZLES!
This is my first puzzle test. These are about 7 inches square.
I really like how the natural woods work but I’m also thinking about painting them or maybe just a few parts.
I thought it would be a good size for a travel puzzle. But I can see I still have some pieces that are really too small. So back to the drawing board on that one, but I thought they would make fun wall art pieces. What do you think? I might sell them as singles or a set. I’m thinking of them as Rockets Vs. UFOs.
Here’s a couple questions. How many pieces make a good kids puzzle and how big should it be?
Give my your thoughts on launching this idea.
Finally made a downloadable 3D Cut out Spaceships. Let me know what you think of these projects and I’ll make more!
I picked up a Silhouette Cameo and I’m trying out some new ideas for paper crafts. Here’s my first test of a Spaceman happy to land on some other planet!
I think I’m going to design these so you can print them out with lines so your nerdling can color or paint on these.
What do you think?
If you know any nerdlings that love memory card games I’m finally ready!
You can play the full deck for a hard game or break them into their separate categories. Comes with this nice plastic case for easy travel anywhere! Find out more about Memory Bank in my store.

After I made the cupcake toppers I realized I should try to make a mobile. Yes I still like mobiles you know why because the are cool! So here’s what I came up with. I picked up a mobile photo holder. But I figured it could hold paper rockets too.
Mobiles Are Cool!
Very soon I’ll have a downloadable kit that you can cut out or if you have a Silhouette Cameo you can use that to cut it out. I’ll even have a ready to hang version ready that you can order very soon.
So stand by future Rocket Commanders!

I was so glad to see my first batch of cards show up the other day. I made a concentration card game for kids called “Memory Bank”. Get it I’m trying to be all Nerdling. I ordered 30 decks, I’m still working out some details but I’m ready to offer them up in the store.
You can play the whole 54 card deck or split them in to three groups of Robot, Rocketships and Aliens. The 3 different categories are color coded to make a little easier to play the full deck. If you just play one group you can play fast games and change up the categories to increase the skill level.
I have some to give away!
So if you want to give them to your little Nerdling. I’d be happy to send you one if you can give me a review, a comment or photos of everyone playing “Memory Bank”. That would really help a lot!
One of my favorite games as a kid was the game of Concentration! At least I called it Concentration, everyone else seems to call it the Memory game. So I’m calling it Memory Bank, you know it sounds more computer like. Here’s a quick preview of my version of Concentration.
The full version will have robots, rockets and aliens! Let me know what you think. What other Sci-Fi elements should a game of memory have?

Here’s a sneak peak at some new paper projects I’m working. I’ll be posting a sample pages soon you can download.
It’s 3D paper spaceships and name cards!
The place cards you can use for parties and so you can have a seating arrangement. Leave them as they are are color them in. Maybe get the kids involved to help you cut them out. You could have them write their own names in the screens.
3D Rocket Ships!
I’m also working on some 3D Rocket Ship designs. They’ll come with paper engines you can wrap around cardboard toilet paper tubes. To give the ships a little added dimension.
You can put the handle on the top and hang them from the ceiling! Or use the landing gear so they can stand upright.
Here’s a better image of the rockets wrapped a round the cardboard tubes.
