My studiomate Bekka Palmer has a staggering 3,198,808 Pinterest followers. It’s quite something. Well, she is quite something. Fabulous for all kinds of reasons. I just discovered her Things To Make Board and I can’t wait to get crafty with Ella (6). Thank you Bekka.
I found these Geometric Pendants on Etsy, they are ready to be painted! Sounds like a fun art project I can do with my six year old. #wishlisted
One of my favorite newsletters, by far, is the one by Mini Eco. This tutorial made me have major flashbacks of the countless pompoms I made as a kid in Switzerland. Red pompoms were my specialty! (Of course!) I wish Etsy would have been around back then, I could have dabbled in entrepreneurship early on!
So, here you go, learn how to make a pompom!
Blurb’s Instagram Books make me so happy. Can’t wait until my son’s It’s Hard Being Two Tumblr has enough images to make a book out of it. We live in such an exciting time. The fact, that anyone (with a computer and internet connection) can create books on the fly, is simply amazing.
I love the internets.
I am pretty confident I’ll be reaching supermom status once I make a batch of these Rainbow Popsicles for my kids.
Here’s a fab tutorial on how to make a Book Cover Disguise for your wireless router.
DIY.org is a new project by Zach Klein that is trying to create a safe place on the web to foster kids’ creativity. As a mother of two, and creativity being a huge part of my work life, I couldn’t be more excited.
Here’s how it works: Let your kid sign up and create an account where they can safely publish what they make. They can upload videos and pictures of their projects using the DIY website or iphone/iPod Touch app. Kids’ projects are online for everone to see, and parents can add stickers to show support. Parents also have their own control panel to follow their activity and also to make sure they’re not sharing anything that should be private.
Consider it a tool that lets kids collect everything they make as they grow up. I love this idea!
How adorable is this little doll family? Talk about character! Found it over on Etsy in Timo Handmade’s Shop.
Jason Taylor challenged himself to make a product a day for the entire year of 2012! He shares his creations over on Every Day Objects #. Wonderful!
