This portable watercolor palette with built-in water containers makes me want to break out my watercolor equipment from art school again.

Sugru is one of the most magical materials I have ever come across. Think of it as Play-doh and Superglue having a baby. And I love how they keep sharing ideas on how to use it in your home. It’s my go-to way to fix my iPhone cables.
Also, I highly recommend the Sugru founder’s 99u talk, if you haven’t seen it!
