Ok, so this has definitely been making the rounds recently, but in case you haven’t seen it, you need to check out this wonderful Tumblr blog called Maddie The Coonhound, which features Maddie standing on various things. All I have to say is that she is one patient dog…with good balance.
Side note: I have desperately been wanting a dog recently. I’ve been spending way too much time on pet adoption websites…wish me luck. I’ll let you know if this obsession comes to fruition.
I recently came across the book Crafting With Cat Hair (it was published in October 2011) and I must say, I’m intrigued. It had never dawned on me that you could actually make something out of all the hair your cat sheds on the furniture. But, according to this book by Kaori Tsutaya (and translated by Amy Hirschmaned), you can make felt and create needle-felted projects with cat hair! I guess what they say is true…cats can haz craftz.
So, I actually posted this on ManMade earlier, but it’s one of those things that I liked so much that I decided to share it here too (sorry to those of you that are both MM and CMYB readers…you get a free pass to call me lazy today). This video, created by Jacob Sutton, features a snowboarder who is in a bespoke LED-covered suit, careening down the slopes in the Rhône-Alpes region of south-eastern France. It’s rather eerie, yet beautiful…
So I’ve decided to start a regular “column” on here to feature some of the wonderful things I’ve stumbled across on Etsy over the past week. I’ll try to make this a weekly thing, but we’ll see how things go…I have commitment issues.
I can’t remember when exactly quilts started being so awesome, but it happened. And I love it. Kaleidoscope-y quilts of yore just don’t cut it anymore. This Great Lakes quilt by Emily Fisher of Haptic Lab, on the other hand, is so great that I want to burn all the blankets in my apartment just so I have a legitimate excuse to buy this.
