To call Julie Alice Chappell clever would be a complete understatement. This crafty artist kept us in awe last month with her ‘Computer Component Bugs’ which were made with old and unwanted computer parts. We’d never seen anything quite like it, so we asked Julie Alice all about her work in a recent interview.
Sydney-based designer Tiffany Roddis has just revived a part of the ‘80s that we sorely miss: the mixtape. By mixing (no pun intended) old and modern technologies, she brings back the good ‘ol days of compiling all our favourite tunes in one awesome cassette.

Making dinner can be a real drag if you’re not equipped with the right tools. And one of those tools has got to be a good quality cutting board. But not just any cutting board – a Cutting Boredom cutting board.

This could be a nifty ploy to get your kids occupied for two to three hours while you rest easy on your sofa and catch up on that DVD. On Steve Wintercroft’s Etsy page are various fun-to-make head masks you can choose from at prices (below US$10) you don’t have to rob a bank for. […]
There’s nothing more heart-warming than receiving a card that says, ‘I MIGHT PEE ON YOU’, and then opening it up to see that it actually means something a lot less tactless. Heather Abbot, owner of Etsy store FINCHandHARE, designed these witty greeting cards that will first insult you and hurt your feelings, then take it […]

California-based artist Cody Williams of ‘Yetis & Friends” has designed a series of monster trophy heads that’ll scare the bejeezus out of your friends and […]

If you can’t get rid of the Snorlax that’s blocking your way, why not join him instead? Etsy seller Christine Kim is helping us become the very best that no one ever was by creating a 6-foot-tall Snorlax bed. It’s a bit pricey at $288 – considering you still have to buy the cotton elsewhere […]
