Web Weekend #1

Welcome to the relaunch of my internet roundup! I used to do it on Wednesday, but the weekend makes so much more sense, really. Look for this post every week, sometime during the weekend (probably Sunday). Follow the blog or my Twitter for instant updates!
I’ve got like, months of stuff to share, but I just couldn’t go back that far here. I’m sad about all the things I had to leave out. In the future, this will feature only a week’s worth of stuff. There should also be a section of “Just for Laughs” but there was no way I could do that one today.

Things

Needle felted Mushroom Terrarium? Yes this exists. I have been wanting to learn felting. (CRAFT)

    I don’t even know anymore. Just… EVERYTHING. Love. I want to cover a “K” in buttons (maybe monochromatic?). I want to mail you cute things (possibly in plastic bottles). Date stamp art – wut? Hurts my brain it’s so amazing. And now you have me wanting to start needlecrafting. I hope your happy.
