Suitcase Craft Tote

I am constantly drawn to vintage suitcases.
I have to be held back and told “No” at yard sales and online casinos thrift stores.

Now I feel completely justified!  I”ll be making one of these soon!

Tutorial: How to Make Concrete Tealight Holders

Check out this awesome tutorial on how to make your own tealight holders!

All you need is fine mixed concrete, small silicone molds, oil, a paintbrush, a spatula, and some tealights.

1. Begin by oiling the molds. You technically don’t need to oil silicone molds, but it doesn’t hurt to be on the safe side. 2. Oil the underneath and sides of the tealight.
3. Mix the concrete and fill the mold with it to just below the top, stopping the concrete from overflowing when you push in the tealight. 4. Shake the mold to get rid of any air bubbles and to level the concrete’s surface.
5. Press the tealight into the center of the concrete, then leave to set on a flat surface. It will take about 24 hours to set. 6. Carefully remove the holders from the molds, and then wash the molds so that they can be reused

I used to work with hypertufa, or “tufa” for short.  It’s a lightweight cement mixture.

I’m definitely going to try these with some tufa this coming spring!

Flying People!

Look up in the sky! It’s a bird. It’s a plane.

It’s an RC plane designed to look like a human being! Up close it’s obvious that these are online casino very simple RC planes, but from a distance they look like people flying through the sky. They were flown over New York City to promote the movie Chronicle.

How awesome!

 

Geeky Paintovers using Victorian Portraits

before & after

Up-cycling at its geeky finest!

Artist Alex Gross creates geek-tastic Kahdensadan hedelmapelin lisaksi loydat hieman pienemman paketin poytapeleja, videopokereita ja muita kasinopeleja . portraits!

Gross takes old Victorian portraits and paints over them, transforming them into characters from comic books and Sci-Fi movies like Batman, Wolverine, and Darth Vader.

At first it seems a bit disrespectful to take what is most likely someone’s only surviving portrait from like 100 years ago and turn it into a kooky character, but the truth is that it’s an honor.

The Internet as a Physical Being

bundled-buried-behind-closed-doors


I was browsing in the RSS feeds of the blogs I read and came across a short documentary by Ben Mendelsohn titled Bundled, Buried & Behind Closed Doors.


With so much of our lives taking place online, it’s easy to think of the Internet as some abstract, ethereal gathering of information with no physical presence. After all, most of us never see the physical infrastructure that is required to shift all of that data around – and we rarely have reason to even think about it until something goes wrong.

But Ben Mendelsohn thinks about it. He sought out some of America’s largest physical information hubs, the unassuming buildings which facilitate the shuffling of mind-boggling amounts of data every day. In his short documentary, Bundled, Buried & Behind Closed Doors, Mendelsohn takes a close look at a nondescript building in lower Manhattan that just happens to act as one of the world’s largest Internet nodes.

This fascinating documentary takes the viewer inside the types of facilities that most of us simply never stop to think about. The staggering arrays of cables all bundled together and the massive machines taking up entire rooms are the physical representations of a realm that we tend to think of as entirely virtual. Who would have thought that the Internet would have such a palpable physical presence right there on Hudson Street?

What would I do with a Silhouette?

What I’m working on today…

flower

Today I will let go of the thinking processes that keep me in the past.

I will remember to focus on what is real and relevant to the current moment, and I will not place old patterns of thought and behavior on the present.

WTF Friday – Cat Toy

I love etsy.com.  It”s one of my favorite sites for cool gifts from independent artists.

It”s also one of the best places to find bizarre and odd items…  Like this one!

What am I waiting for?

Starting over.

I moved my site from one host to another… And thought long and hard about saving my old content.

It was outdated, erratic, and not cohesive at all.

Not that this will be well planned and make perfect sense to everyone.  I thought I”d just start with a clean slate.

I still fear blogging.  I write great blog posts in my head all the time, but when it comes time to actually write down what I am thinking, I blank out.   I think of topics to write about, but then shy away because “people” might get offended.  I”m guessing that I am doing myself a disservice.

I will begin to blog.
