Here's what the seller says: This antique typewriter has been modified to work as a USB Keyboard for PC, Mac, or even iPad! That's right — its a beautiful and fully functional computer keyboard! The USB Typewriter can type all letters, numerals, and punctuation marks. It also includes shift, space, and return carriage (which is literally activated by the typewriter's return carriage!). Many non-standard keys, such as F1-F12, esc, ctrl, and so on are available with a special toggle key. The modification is very clean leaves the typewriter looking, feeling, and working like a regular typewriter — and yes, it still writes beautifully on paper. A beatiful, functional, unique addition to your home office.

What the Seller says: You knew there was something missing in your life. A certain creepy and odd something, but you don't know what it is… until now. The old nostalgic My Little Pony you had as a kid, now twisted and morphed into an Alien. You are now able to show your soft, sensitive side with an obvious hardcore-ness, too!
This little guy will be hand-crafted by me. My original version was created in 2006. He will stand about 6.25" tall and about 12" long and would love to be added to your collection of awesomely unusual. This is a one of a kind piece that you won't get anywhere.
Take me home with you! You won't regret the consequences. Shipping is on me and if you'd rather have a different custom, please let me know, otherwise, it'll look pretty much like it does pictured. Please allow for 4 weeks for your creation.

This picture doesn't really do the messiness of our hands justice.
For the last several years I've been responsible for the VBS crafts at our church. Last night was the first night of Vacation Bible School and my toadie #1 and I were covered in flour and water. We are making paper mache flicker nightlights..
It took several washing to get all the flour and water glue off my hands. I'm not sure my wedding ring will ever be the same. 😉
Here's what they looked like last night. I think we made around 70 of these.
The kids made them.. then #1 and I went back over them to make sure they were fully covered. When they are dry we will poke holes in them, add decoration and a light..
A few weeks ago I found a really cool travel scrapbook from the early 1960's. My sweet #4 is going on a trip with his godmother to Mississippi and I thought it would be fun to get him one… except they don't really make those anymore. So I made him one. (photos of the one I found in a antique mall below)
Leaving for their trip!
I bought him several things to do in the car, but I thought I would make him a little journal-game thing to take with him too.
I bought this notebook because it had the rings we could add and subtract what we needed from the book.
Line and Dot drawings
The License Plate Game
The Cow Game… he's still looking for the "Peg leg Man".
(I know I spelled "cemetery" wrong.. I fixed it after I took the photo )
I included some jokes to tell and some ideas of what to take pictures of… I even included stuff he thought would sell on eBay. 🙂
When he comes back home, we will develop his photos and put the stuff all in the book for him to look at years to come. Have you done anything like this for yourself or one of your kids?
Here's the cool vintage scrapbook that gave me the idea:
