Craft magazine may have gone the way of all flesh, but the blog is alive and well, and among today's offerings was this, a link to an article in the Wallflower section of the SF Gate about bookshelf organization. This picture of the shelves, organized by color, is fantastic:
If hands-on stuff is more your thing, then Craftzine has that base covered too, with a really excellent feature called How-To Tuesdays. This week's installment is How to make a magnetic organizer, and now I really want one of these for all my junk in the classroom.
Another really fun and innovative source of ideas and inspiration is Growing Up Creative. This flower wall art is made entirely out of recycled materials- I think my preschoolers and I will have a go at this project when the weather gets nicer. Here's a look at a possible finished product:
Although the project is currently on infinite hiatus, Folding Trees is one of my favorite papercraft sites, with tons of really awesome ideas and tutorials. Here are two of my favorites: Junk Mail Gift Bags and Shopping Bag to Shipping Mailer. There are tons of other tutorials on the site as well as a Flickr group, so until new content goes up there's plenty of other great stuff to fill the time.
This week's video is a favorite of mine, and comes, of course, via BoingBoing- the song is by Ceri Frost (website) and the film is by Giles Timms (website), according to YouTube it's what happens when "enchanted by a pixie, a child called Yorick enters a magical kingdom, but when Yorick returns he finds his world ravaged by time."
