How freaking cool is this? Really simple instructions on how to make your own old school wooden wax seal. I would imagine this would be a rarity to use, but still would be pretty cool to have (like an embosser). #
A kindergarten-aged child sketched her own clothes, and her mother was kind enough to create the drawings for the child. I'm sure my wife would love this idea, and might even venture to do it herself, especially considering the artistic abilities of my oldest daughter. #
A flickr collection of pages from an old french how-to-draw books. There's something beautiful in the simplicity of these types of books. #
For the day when I have room to store something like this... I can't help but flag this idea. #
Slick web-based card catalog generator (à la old school Dewey Decimal System in your old library). I like the extra touches they've put on the cards, like the scribbles from somebody who jotted something on the card. I'd like a bit more control on the specific type of card it generated (since it has a few), but still very slick. Makes me want to go smell the oldest books in my home. #
A very slick little DIY toolbox out of Altoid tins. Pretty slick. I've always thought Altoid tins were too perfect not to be used for something after you're done with them. This... is a good idea. #
A fairly straight-forward way to remove rust from items. I have a couple things I'd like to try this out on, since it sounds plausible. I'd say I'm bookmarking this more for future reference, as opposed to thinking it's a really cool read. #
Super easy project, make a book into a clock. Perfect for a child's bedroom--use a storybook. Chances of me actually doing this? Slim to nil. How cool I think this would be to have? Very. #
What are so many crochet-hook-wielding, papermaking, silversmithing handicrafters doing online? Trying to prove that the future of shopping, and of work, is all about the past.
As my personal note, I'm glad this whole revolution is taking place. The pieces I've read of this article are great. I'll need to return to finish this off. #
Your own handwriting on your computer! I'm sold. #
