We got an equally adorable and heart-breaking letter from my just-turned-five nephew yesterday. I talked to my mom last week and she said that said nephew told her how much he was missing us and that he wanted to write us a letter, which he did and my mom sent me the next day when he was with her. I wanted to send him a little something in return. It started with an embroidered robot, then I thought, hey it would be cool if there were a QR code that he could scan. I could change the message on it from time to time. Then of course, I thought, wouldn’t it be even MORE awesome if there was an LED that lit up (by a little parental assistance/magic) when he had a new message?!?! So I looked up some e-mail tutorials and Voila. Gleep-Gorp was born
Here he is with his “Message Light” on.
I had to do something, I was going stir-crazy from being so sick. I am feeling mostly better, but I still have a terrible cough. It is getting better a little at a time. I don’t feel well enough to finish up on Plain and Fancy, but maybe tomorrow will be better. Until then, it’s the little things that will get me by. 🙂
