In heaven there's no beer. That's why we drink it here. (Belgian proverb)
I love mindbreakers. Some people play chess, others solve sudoku's, few learn extinct languages, and the real die-hards trie to understand IKEA-manuals. Haha.
I'm not into all that stuff. Too much too painful. But I love to solve makers-related-problems. 'How should I do this?' 'What would I do if?' - an attitude that has resulted in a lot of I'bles, yet...
I love those moments when I'm installed comfortably with a pen, a sketchbook and a strong cup of smelly black coffee as my best friends, designing, thinking, sketching. Every year there are a hundred pages full of ideas & projects. My favorite present? Just give me a virgin sketchbook. And a loaded pen.
So when member doodlecraft came up with her beautiful mason jar hack, I started thinking how I would hack such a thing. Thanx natalie, you gave me hours of pleasure - I like your project, by the way. 'Yes, I made it. Although not exactly as you described...' ;)
So after some designing and some making I came up with a decent successor of my 'Viking' beer mug: a largely overkilled 'moon lander' mug. Enjoy!
