1. Melty crayon art You can buy this from JK Create on Etsy, OR make your very own using a box of crayons and a hairdryer, thanks to the pioneering experiments of Tracy on Naptime = Craft time. Let me know if you try it!
2. Fashion time machine [vimeo http://www.vimeo.com/28753875 w=525&h=295]
100 years of East London style in 100 seconds. I watched this yesterday and I was blown away. Then I watched it again. Then I clicked "favourite."
3. Free postcard apps
Seriously: the thought of combining my instagram addiction with my addiction for all things postal is making me a little light-headed! Take a look at these five free iPhone apps for sending postcards.
4. Magical floating Ferris Wheel
In this video project, artist Maider Lopez made all the structures of a Ferris Wheel in Austria seem to disappear, creating a magical, floating world.
5. Imogen's imagination come to life
There's a bit of a story to go with this one. Do you remember a while back when I introduced you to Rachel of "i make. you wear it.", who is making a dress a day for charity? I showed you her incredible postcard dress...
Around about the same time that I discovered Rachel, my friend Ruby had also shown me a number of amazing dresses designed by her eight-year-old daughter Imogen. Imogen has a wonderful sense of colour and form. I thought there were some synergies between Rachel's and Imogen's aesthetic, so I showed Ruby the site. She got in touch with Rachel, who has just spent the past week making Imogen's dress designs a reality.
Isn't that wonderful? And how talented is Imi! How awesome is Rachel!
Rachel is doing this project to raise funds for The Starlight Foundation, which brightens the lives of seriously ill children. So if you like what you see, I do hope you'll consider making a donation.
