Though it's bright and sunny today, my computer dashboard is forecasting more snow for this week! If you're going to be stuck inside like me, check out the sale section of the MamaRobot shop. I wanted to make room for new stock, so I discounted some items by half! Enjoy, and stay warm!

Penny is napping, and I used the downtime to add the letter U to the shop. I had a brainstorm this morning (I get all my best ideas in the shower) to take all these alphabet robots and make an animated film! I haven't made a film in about 10 years, but this one would be pretty easy I think. Plus, I'm married to a super-talented music/recording expert who is easily bribed with a plate of chicken parm.

Today's letter is O! And it's up in the shop right now! Once I get through the entire alphabet (or maybe before) I'm going to add discounts for buying more than one letter, in case people want to buy a few for their child's initials, or one for each sibling, or maybe the whole alphabet! Stay tuned.

Letter A is now up in the shop. This was one of the first, if not THE first, letter I tackled in my Robot Alphabet project. In the beginning I thought every letter was going to be really robot-y, and the first few letters are (i.e. a for antenna, b for buttons, c for cables). But some of the words I came up with were a bit of a stretch, not to mention difficult to illustrate. So my rule became that the robot had to either BE the word, or BE DESCRIBED BY the word. So D became Dirty, for a dirty robot. (Maybe I'll share that one tomorrow.) And I went on from there.

For those loyal enough to be checking up on my long-neglected blog, I'd like to share some new additions to the Etsy shop: Robot Alphabet prints! This is a project I began last July and finished up around October, taking breaks here and there for freelance work. I hope you all like them as much as I do. Happy 2011!
