This is the official start of a (hopefully) weekly link round-up. Things I’ve been inspired by, things I want to rip off, and things I would buy if only I had the dosh. Winks stands for Wednesday links here (weekend links there) and is blantantly stolen from the incredible blog, Desire to Inspire. So here’s what’s fresh this week.
I’m starting to get obsessed with the idea of making soap. Like this tiramisu soap that she dusted with cocoa powder (genius) or these cupcakes that look real enough to eat. Why don’t you learn how to make this apple cinnamon tart soap while you’re there?
Iryna’s store on etsy sells many original knits including this Rag Doll Bonnet which is essentially a knit wig. Or how about this incredible free-form crochet hat in Woolmountain’s photoset. Speaking of free-form, have you seen the 365 knit pics at Velma’s World? Got yarn scraps? Then why don’t you whip up a pair of mary jane slippers?
Flickr in general is becoming a dangerously obsessive habit. I hardly understand how to use the thing, but I do know right click button and my favorites list is feeling the weight of it. You should go check out all the pictures I’ve found there. Of course, you could just wait until I start overloading you with more mosaics.
If you’ve got an old CRT monitor, you can turn it into a fish tank. Just make sure to read the comment advice about safety precautions. After all that hard work, you might want to lounge on your comfy jean couch.
Plus, I’ve neglected some blogs I love. They’ve been wallowing in my “blogs I watch” list while I’ve been too lazy to welcome them aboard. You should already know Design*Sponge and if you don’t than take the time. Not liking it is a crime. Creature Comforts is chock full of eye candy at both the new site and the old one. I’ve hearded you to Bugs and Fishes before, and if you haven’t already seen Moonstitches you’re out of the loop.
