Welcome to the new Store!

Posted by Fallon Foster on

After nearly 6 years of being almost exclusively on Etsy today I'm rolling out a standalone store page to sell things directly to clients.  It might take a few more days to finish cleaning up the renovation dust but if you're reading this then the new shop is ready and open for business!   Why move away from Etsy? Etsy was a great place to start my shop and grow it over the last six years and I'll always be grateful for that.  There's been a lot of changes in how Etsy treats its seller community in the past couple of years...

Spring Surprise

Posted by Fallon Foster on

This has nothing to do with the shop but this brought me some joy this weekend and that's the only reason to share it. My in-laws usually throw together big feasts for the family in the local area for every holiday.  With everyone in self-isolation we hadn't seem them in awhile and the usual get-together wasn't an option.  So they cooked up all the food anyway and made door to door deliveries.  We wanted something to contribute so we came up with these in short-order. I was able to pull some models off Thingiverse and got them cranking out in...

Breakfast Bread

What with all the self isolation it seems like everyone's discovered baking so at least something good's come out of all this.  I started baking just before I moved to Canada and for the past few years I've been making my own bread that I have as toast every morning.  That'll probably sound dull to most folks but I appreciate being able to fall out of my bunk and not have to figure out what I'm cramming in my gullet.  It's a pretty adaptable and forgiving recipe so it should be perfect for any aspiring bakers.  The bread is hearty...

Short and Sweet: I'm still operating more or less normally There may be some unexpected delays from disrupted supply chain I hope everyone's staying safe out there!   Seems like the world's going to be closing up shop for awhile.  I stay on top of the news so this has been like watching a slow-motion, inevitable train wreck for months.  The tragic consequences of governmental ineptitude aside, this is going to be tough.   Since I was already working from home my daily routine isn't going to be that much different.  It's tougher on my wife since the Library is closed...

New Printer

Posted by Fallon Foster on

I only learned about SLA and DLP printers recently but after seeing the kind of detail they could achieve I've been wanting one for the shop.  Thanks to the COVID crisis it's taken a few months to show up but I now have a Peopoly Moai 130 sitting next to the trusty old Lulzbot. It's going to take some experimenting and practice to become proficient with this style of printing but I'm looking forward to it.  Our players are definitely going to get a lot of new D&D minis while I build my experience.  I'm hoping that by the summer...
