things on the internet that are awesome

November 6th, 2009

These kind of posts are addictive. You do one and then suddenly you find all these other things that are awesome and you need another. So maybe this will become a regular thing, though I’m bad at sticking to “every friday I will…” so let’s just say it’s a feature that will come and go. So here are this week’s awesome things on the internet:

This leaf crown was part of a “homemade halloween” post on Dos Family. I want to make this before the leaves get too crunchy and crumbly. They are almost all off the trees, so I better work fast. Damn if winter isn’t on it’s way already.

Ringo is a fantastic resource for creative kids projects that I heard about on bkids. It’s in french, but with my handy dandy google translator I can read it all.  It’s a beautiful site with tons of drawing projects, download-able masks, children’s book reviews and lots more. They say,  “ Each publication will be monthly and will include a fortnight of activities.” Awesome! So go check it out.

I can’t remember where I found this, but the Play Box looks like a pretty fantastic christmas present for any kid. A box filled with flip books, word games,  pictures that come to life when you hold them up to the light, a cool Russian kid’s book from 1928? I’m in.

And just so you don’t think everything awesome on the internet is for kids, here is today’s project on design sponge: crocheted hanging plant holders. I need to new crochet project and I think this is just the thing as everything fades and turns brown outside we need some color and life inside. But they would also make cute kid purses.

Posted in inspiration.
