Pinterest.  I love you.  You gave me this:

 

This is a DIY T-shirt project from Martha Stewart.  Cool design, right?

Take a look at the Tools and Materials List.  First thing: whole fish or fish replica.

First How-To Step: Generously ink fish.

What?

I like how she gives you a template for the hook, though.

Bromance Valentines On Their Way

DIY, relationships

If you Google “valentine for bromance,” this post from last February is the first result.  I can’t prove that I invented the Bromance Valentine, but I believe I owe the public an updated offering this year.  Look for that by the 13th.

In the meantime, enjoy this DIY Freaks and Geeks Valentine I gave my wife last year:

How To Make A Hollow Book in Which to Hide Your Stuff

Books, DIY, Repurposing

If you went to a high school, you knew a kid who tried to do this. Trust me on that. (No, it wasn’t me.) Now that you’re all growed-up like Wendy Darling, what kinds of things would you use something like this for? Oh, and kids, if you’re reading: don’t bring crap you’re not supposed to to school. Unless it’s something funny. Also, don’t do drugs.

My favorite part of this whole project has to be the inclusion of our old friend, the 3.5 inch floppy disk.  I also appreciated “make sure this is your book” and “make sure you use a hardcover book.”  Now, honestly, I actually cringe at the very thought of cutting or otherwise mangling a book no matter what the awesome final product.  When I find old books at garage sales, I bring them home and nurse them back to health.  Maybe you have a damaged, unusable, unsalvageable edition of something that you can re-purpose for these kinds of projects. If so, then, like Mitch Hedberg used to say, I’m for ’em.

Speaking of Mitch Hedberg, I’m pretty sure he invented Twitter.  Is a post on that forthcoming?  I think you know the answer to that, friend.

Speaking of StumbleUpon, if you use it, let me know so we can connect and share recommendations, reviews, and likes.  If you don’t know what it is, let me just say that it has precious little to do with Culture Club.  Misheard title lyrics there are “I’ll Tumble 4 Ya.”  You’d think these guys would be all over that.
