Nerdy Birthday Presents

Sometimes when we're not working on Andrecca, we craft other nerdy things. Becca does a lot with clay, yarn and beads when she can. I usually don't get too crafty, but this year I decided I wanted to custom paint some controllers for Becca's birthday.  She really likes to get her hands on pink controllers whenever she can.  She has a pink Wii Remote but there aren't a ton of other accessories out there that are pink, unless you want to chance it with off brands.  Becca is a big fan of the Mario Kart franchise, especially Double Dash.  So I decided that she needed to have a pink Wavebird GC controller along with a pink Wii Wheel.

The Importance of Being Backed Up

I absolutely know that this should go without saying,  but if you are doing work that is important to you on a computer, back it up. 

Learn from me, my name is Becca and I trusted the one copy I had of a project I was working on. That one copy, yeah, I lost it. It was entirely deleted. Don't worry, this story has a happy ending, thanks to Andrew (he literally is my better half when it comes to electronics).
