Punched out some tags and decorated them with a glitter gel pen. Except for the one that looks pretty blank - it's got a heart drawn in red glass paint. It'd probably work better on a light colour. It is better in real life than scanned though.

I have no idea what to do with these. They're about 1 1/2" by 1/2". Not the best choice for art by the inch :-)

Lovely.

Could've used on of these tonight ~ we were sending pressie to Alba for Grampa, from Jess. Would have augmented the whole 'hand-made' vibe perfectly!!

I need to get a little hole punch so I can make dangly things. They're far too small to use a standard office punch.

I have made a card using same sized tags, but I've yet to upload it.

Perdantickety bit first (sorry!): is "one space one slash two double-prime by one slash two double-prime" some kind of measurement? How do you convert from double-primes to metres? Is a double-prime twice as good as a prime (which itself is presumably very good indeed, given its name)?

More nicely: these look nice! They definitely look as though they have a purpose of some kind in mind, and I think your use of the word 'tag' implies that you think that too. Depending on the thickness of the paper/card they're made from, they could be either labels on something (small glass jars with matching contents?) or stick-up tags attached to something else — a very small card-index, perhaps, using A7 cards.

There seems to be a common theme to your decoration: three of them show hearts, three show flowers, and three show fruit-or-vegetables (assuming the bottom-right one is a pumpkin!) so maybe you could develop that further and add either a couple more themes (each with three tags) or add more tags to your existing themes.

Ooh, commenting on the hard labour of other is so much more rewarding than watching the last couple of minutes of the (yawn) superbowl.

Perdantickety bit: Shut up! You're an intelligent guy, I can't see why you can't get a hold of these simple symbols :-) Besides, I did it for Art By The Inch, so inches seem like the sensible unit to measure them in.

Pumpkin: Er... it's a curled up cat. But it's name can be Pumpkin, if you like. I could do two more cats and another fruit, now that I know there's a sequence of themes :-)

Bah. That was me.

I guessed, and only noticed it was anonymous when you posted with the pretty, er, birdies :)

:) Yea, I know — I'm just trying to force my world view on the, er, world. Bit dictatorial, I know, but the world needs campaigners, even armchair ones...

No need to use those simple symbols when we have a perfectly understandable system that the entire world (almost...) understands. And it doesn't use symbols at all, just a logical system of letter-based suffixes (m, g, s, etc), each with letter-based prefixes to indicate scale (m, k, c, etc).

Besides, I did it for Art By The Inch, so inches seem like the sensible unit to measure them in.

Yea, I understand that. Maybe I should start campaigning (from my armchair) for a renaming of Art by the Inch…

Pumpkin: Er... it's a curled up cat. But it's name can be Pumpkin, if you like. I could do two more cats and another fruit, now that I know there's a sequence of themes :-)

Ah! I can see the cat now. Pumpkin's a nice name for a cat too, I think; I can imagine a ginger cat to go with the name. A fat round solid cat, not ephemeral at all.

Hmp, not sure what I think of what the LJ quote button does. Hope that's comprehensible!

I love the way gmail deals with quoting. All the quoted bits came up purple, so I'd no problem.

Ha - that wouldn't have happened if I hadn't commented anonymously (I got comment notification for my comment cos it was anonymous).

Hmmm... when you put it like that... it doesn't seem logical at all! The "letter-based prefixes to indicate scale" should be something like a, b, c.



I suddenly feel like having ginger biscuits. I wonder why that is....
davidg666 on February 6th, 2006 11:48 pm (UTC)
...except a, b, c don't mean anything at all unless you carefully associate them with something. The SI system prefixes are all short for real and non-arbitrary words whose meaning actually reflects the meaning of the prefix (centi: hundredth, milli: thousandth, etc). Both logically logical and humanly logical. I claim :)

As for the ginger biscuits, I reckon that's something to do with the colour I associate with your LJ, your default LJ userpic and the cat-tag called pumpkin. Wow, I'd love some ginger biscuits right now; I wonder where the nearest ones are. Probably about 6000 mi^H^Hkilometres away :p

Should just use scientific notation. Fie upon your letters!

Perhaps somethign to do with your suggestion that Pumkin is a ginger cat. I did end up having ginger biscuits yesterday - ginger crunch creams. Lovely!
