I've not fallen off the face of the planet, and to prove it, I've made this blog syndicated through Feedburner, available in the various atom/RSS/whateverelseyouuse feed formats. Vive la !
I expect to have more things made as I spend more time stuck in lecture classes, starting in a week.

It's vauger and therefore more all-encompassing. I guess I'll be handing these out to family friends and the Demonwares card out to Anime-con goers.
And yes, I hate giving out my real name. Both of them.

And shots of the tshirts, for size approximation.
The SPQR shirt is a dark heather grey. The Greek shirt is a light dusty moss (I think it's called "willow") and the Good Idea shirt is a turquoise shade.
It's kind of hard to convey colors in an unlit room with lousy photography.

I rest my case:
It's a single glass with five designs

I had bought a basswood box from the craftstore (I think it cost less than 2$) and taken a coping saw to it, cutting a window into the top of the box. I had installed a pane of glass in it and then tossed it in the faculty/student lounge to hold tea.
And then I got bored or something, and took it back, removed the glass and etched the chinese/japanese characters for (suprise!) "Tea" and "Box" on it.
Here's the box with tea in it.
It's about 8 inches wide. I don't recall the exact dimensions.
Though it does look very nice, don't be fooled: it's a the box is of a light wood, and was very, very cheap. I wasn't all that accurate with the coping saw, either, so the cut lines aren't crisp. I did sand a polish and burnish the box, and waxed it too, so it's loads classier than what it started out as.
(The box is now back in the lounge and stocked with tea. )

Yeah, the explanatory details are needed.
18 gauge aluminum wire.
It used to be a Batman symbol, wire noose/balloon/invisible-dog-leash, and another dragon. (It's been through several reincarnations.)

I give you:
It's a shot glass with a bromeliad-in-a-tree (aka: epiphyte).
