Handmade gifts for geeks, nerds and techies.

What we want you to think the workshop looks like.
What it actually looks like.
We stick pins in a map to show our sales. Old school, but fun.
Kinda cool to be running a global business out of a spare bedroom. Thanks Etsy!
This is Basil, a squirrel that didn't get eaten because of your kind purchases.

“Honey! There's a new 'About' section in Etsy we have to update!"

"Oh, joy. The Witness Protection people are going to go crazy again."

WITNESS PROTECTION WIRETAPPING TEAM HERE. YES WE *ARE* GOING TO GO CRAZY IF YOU DON'T KEEP YOUR SECRET IDENTITIES QUIET.

"I hate it when they butt in like that."

"Me too. We're just trying to live a quiet life as Etsy shop purveyors, coming up with geeky stuff and embarrassing the children."

"That's right. We're just simple artists and crafters, and not former secret agents who are personally responsible for -"

NOW CUT THAT OUT. YOU ALMOST GAVE SIMPSON OVER HERE A HEART ATTACK.

"Why don't you guys go out for pizza and leave us alone for a little bit?"

"We promise to behave ourselves."

PROMISE?

"Promise."

OK, BUT JUST FOR A LITTLE WHILE. SIMPSON COULD USE A QUICK MEAL AFTER THE SCARE YOU GAVE HIM. WITNESS PROTECTION WIRETAP DIVISION SIGNING OFF.

"Do you think they're gone?"

"Sure they're gone. Simpson is a pizza fanatic and wouldn't miss a nice pepperoni pie for anything."

"Cool. So now we can tell the Etsy folks out there about Yellow Bug Boutique."

"Oh, please. Like they really want to hear about how we're running a global business from a spare bedroom."

"Well, it is interesting that we've now sold something on every continent, including Antarctica. (REALITY CHECK : ok ,ok... so,we didn't technically ship something to Antarctica...someone bought a hat to give to someone who was going to Antartica...in our book that is close enough...isn't it?) And that we've discovered that there are a lot of science types out there who have really good senses of humor. Or we've discovered that there is a disturbingly large portion of the population that doesn't really understand the concept of the Periodic Table of Elements."

"Well, I guess we could tell our Etsy friends that stuff. Seems kinda boring, though."

"How about we tell them that one of our pillows was featured in a major magazine?"

"If anyone still reads magazines, that might be a big deal. We're living in the digital age now, remember? Not like when we were doing that mission in Jakarta."

"You mean the one where we stole the polytronic transmogrifying capacitor right from under the noses of -"

THAT'S ENOUGH FROM YOU TWO. THE REMAINDER OF THIS SECTION HAS BEEN REDACTED BY THE FEDERAL WITNESS PROTECTION PROGRAM.

PS. SIMPSON SAYS THANKS FOR THE PIZZA.
