My Robot Makes Me Smile

Sunday, June 20, 2010

John and I leave in less than twelve hours for our Tempe show, but I had to show you these:

Just in case any of you will be there. :)

If so, just ask for one at the table; I only had time to make a few handfuls to bring along.

Wish us luck and good health; the CW "World" Tour part three starts tomorrow!

  11. Awww man!! None of the stops on the tour come close to me (Middle Tennessee), but I want one of those pins!! They are awesome looking, and I'm proud to call myself a geek!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Aww! Those buttons are so cute! I wish I could be on that side of the country to get one, but alas, I am on the east coast...

    ReplyDelete
  13. oh my goodness! i love these buttons a ridiculous amount! will they be potentially available in the future?

    ReplyDelete
  14. I totally want one of those buttons to add to my work "flair" Wish I was able to make it to one of your stops, but alas I'm stuck in rainy Washington this time. Though I'm one who votes for them being available in the future! :D

    ReplyDelete
  15. So cute! Now I'm sad you didn't have these when you came to Boston before.

  16. *is jealous*

    I want pretties, too!

  17. Not gonna lie... I totally love the EPBOT blog more than I love Cake Wrecks. And I LOVEEEE Cake Wrecks.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Your robot makes me smile too! I hope you have a great time in Tempe. I'm just sorry I can't be there.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Good luck wish I could be there!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I could cry- I'm only 15 mins. away from the bookstore, but no chance of making it tomorrow. I'm there in spirit- and would totally wear the pin. :) Only you would schedule a book signing in AZ on the first day of summer! :) Safe trip, and remember to drink your water!

  21. You should ask for a penny for each button - and then tool the pennies into buttons using your doming block. Then fans would know that their pennies are now decorative items around your house!

  22. NO GETTING SICK!!!!!! Praying you guys have a healthy, safe, fun, happy tour!

    ReplyDelete
  23. you are one creative individual. I friggin love your brain, but in a non weird way. Im gonna stop talking now.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I would totally ask for one of those!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Jen, I don't blame you for wanting to share, those are cute! However, it is slightly mean of you to show ALL of us, but then only share the actual buttons with the tour. I collect this type of button (not aggressively, but casually), and I would love to have one. Sadly, I live in NC and not CA. I don't suppose that you will be touring here? Or even selling the cute button somewhere? You could even sell it in a two pack with the "I want sprinkles" design from Cake Wrecks.

    Just a thought......

    ReplyDelete
  26. I love that the robot looks a little chubby. Makes me happy. Also, when are you coming to Colorado? WHEN, I say, WHEN?!?!?

    ReplyDelete
  27. I love those buttons!!! I'm thinking you guys should take your tour to the Guantanamo Bay, Cuba Navy base. Yep. Oh and what a coincidence... that's where I live! :) Best of luck with your tour.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Those are so adorable! If only your "world" tour part three was going *anywhere* near Ohio... sigh...

    ReplyDelete
  29. Good luck, good health and...

    I want one of those buttons!!!!!!

    Any chance you'd like to come to Maine? Or I could meet you in Epcot when we go to Disney World!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I WANT ONE!!!!! grrr I want to live in San Diego!

    ReplyDelete
  31. come to Israel so I can get one?
    lol
    question for everyone
    is there a cheep work around way to make a diy button maker???
    I'm IN LOVE with your buttons, Jen. And you've given me the "button bug". Now I have to make some for my band... but crafting supplies are SOOO expensive over here!!
    help?

    ReplyDelete
  32. want one!! want one want one want one.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I WANT ONE! (please). Too bad I'm in Texas and you aren't...

    ReplyDelete
  34. I think we ALL want one of these now! Head on up to Vancouver Island for your tour so I can have one. :p

    ReplyDelete

  36. Those buttons are totally cute! I want to know as soon as they are available for non-west coasters. I did attend your Austin stop, if that counts! ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Please, please, oh, please bring some to DC this year!
    and i will find you and get my carrot jockey this year.

    ReplyDelete
  38. You aren't coming to CT this time and you didn't come last time so I too would like a pin sent to me. Maybe 10 of them so that I can hand them out to friends of mine. Maybe you can make them available in Cake Wrecks shop. I'd pay for them.

    ReplyDelete
  39. please please please please please sell these on epbot or cake wrecks sometime in the near future!!!! it's just what my bookbag needs to be complete!!!!! (my bookbag has an assortment of buttons, pins, appliques, and patches dealing with anything from spamalot to being green to the movie office space to the movie juno to obama to john lennon to coffee and (my favorite) to flogging molly, so..... as you can see, this would be the perfect addition :D

    ReplyDelete
  40. I was SO SO SO SO SO excited that Salt Lake made it on the tour and then I saw the date and sunk in my chair. I am in charge of a youth fundraiser that night. It is pathetic that I seriously considered if it would be possible for me to skip out and come and see you. Alas being responsible stinks. Have fun! I will miss you!

  41. Travel Safe and Stay Healthy this time please!

    There wasn't much to be had, but that tapestry is too cool !

    Sorry to interrupt. ;)

  43. Those buttons are ADORABLE! Have fun at Tempe

  44. Love your blog. I've been reading it since day 1. Can't wait for more. I work at a call center at night, and your blogs make my night fly by. Good luck on your tour. Don't tour any more hospitals, they're all alike.

  45. I have something that might feed your Steampunk addiction...

  46. Save some for San Diego! I want one too!

    ReplyDelete
  47. *wimper*

    Another Texas girly here who wants a Roberta pin. Have you named the robot yet? What about having a naming contest for your robot to win a pin for those of us who sadly don't live close to your tour stops?

    Think your promo manager could try to schedule a Houston visit on your next tour? I'm sure we could find one small bookstore somewhere in Houston (we're only the 4th largest metropolis).

  48. Unrelated to pins, but completely related to Epbot:

    I found a cool online site that sells jewelry findings and whatnot that would be totally appropriate for making steampunk jewelry and embellishments. She even has a few finished pieces for sale (like a "talisman" bracelet, but OMG $280!). Worth checking out if you're still needing some unique pieces for creating/decorating.

  49. Neener neener, I got an Epbot pin at the Tempe book signing party last night! They're really cute. Thanks Jen!

  50. I saw this link and immediately thought of you. Apparently a famous steampunk treehouse is going to be permanently installed at my hometown brewery (Dogfish Head Beer-Milton, DE)

  56. Love my new pin from SLC. Almost thought I lost it from the bookstore to the car. Whew! Found it in the car!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Hi..I know you probably won't read this but I just wanted to tell you that I was going to go to the Salt Lake visit and I couldn't because of ride issues...whatever...anyways I was really upset and I hope you guys come back here sometime in the future:) I love both the blogs!

    ReplyDelete

  61. Wish I could have made it to the Tempe stop, but unfortunately I have to work nights :( The pins are absolutely adorable.

    ReplyDelete
  62. hey jen.
    why no new posts? i am looking forward to my next dose of sarcastic, cynical, hilarious writing! thanks for all the laughs!

    ReplyDelete
  63. Hi Jen! I got your last Epbot button yesterday in La Jolla (and I wear it with pride!). I just wanted to say again what a pleasure it was to meet you and John, and because I forgot to tell you in person, THANK YOU so much for paying the entrance fee for all of us. That kind of generosity is unbelievable.

    Thanks again!!

  64. I love your blogs!!!! I wish I could come see your shows! Those pins are adorable, are you going to sell them like the necklaces? I would totally buy them!

    ReplyDelete
  65. Jen ... we miss you. Where are you?

    ReplyDelete
  66. Jen? Hello? Are you out there?

    ReplyDelete
  67. I know I'm a total hypocrite (because I haven't posted on my own blog in over a month) but I'm going into withdrawl. Where's my Epbot?!? There's new Cake Wrecks everyday, but Epbot is like the red-headed stepchild over here.
    :(

    ReplyDelete
  68. Jen -- I'm totally at a loss as to how to pass this on, so here goes nothing...

    I saw this video and (if you haven't already) thought you'd enjoy it...
