Pixelthis makes some amazing clocks from a variety of recycled sources like hard drives, turntables, computer covers, bike gears and chains, and even a bike wheel! They don’t seem to be good for knowing the exact time, but they do look lovely:
They’re dubbed the “Crosheiders,” but the Superhero Team-Amigurumi Crochet Pattern by stripeyblue ($5.99) resembles a particular Bandai team of heroes who also wore brightly colored spandex. However, this crochet pattern will create a team that’s 100 times more adorable! I love their cute, sassy little poses:
Stumbled upon the cuteness via Super Cute Kawaii.
I’ve always loved the look of circuit boards: my dad would give me his old ones and I’d pretend they were little cities. Debby Arem Designs on DaWanda makes circuit boards crafty with some great jewelry and home/office products made from recycled components. They’re a great connection of tech and art, and look good doing it too:

When I was searching for monsters on Etsy, I noticed that there were a great deal of Yetis. Round yetis, tall yetis, bunny yetis, yetis with mustaches…even a zombie yeti! I can see the Yeti appeal: they’re soft, cuddly, and very mysterious. And who can resist Yetis when they look like this cute! See the yetis after the break:
Even after featuring Etsy’s monster shops, I’ve only scratched the surface of the monster-y goodness that exists on the web, and I can’t help but look for more! So the “Monsters in My Cortex” T-shirt by Jean Jullien ($25.00) is eerily apt. Add a little more humor with the Grr Arg Monster Necklace by Finest Imaginary (£6.99) and you’ve got yourself a monster-loving outfit!
Companion Cube papercrafts have swept the internet since Portal first came out, but I really love these cute DIY boxes from the Anli and Laura wedding. They’re super simple to make and are great for favors and gifts. The downloadable Companion Cube Papercraft by Moony serves as a template, and Anli and Laura have provided DIY instructions on Flickr. So go check it out and make a cube of your own!
Recently Offbeat Bride featured the wedding of Anli and Laura, who themed their celebration around Portal and Revolutionary Girl Utena. There were tons of awesome geeky details, like the Portal Companion Cube cake, the Companion Cube bon bon boxes, and Utena figurines. They also posed with beautifully decorated Nintendo DSes! All around awesomeness.
