My Internet Favorites for April 23

I think we all probably have a problem with internet drift these days.  There are so many ways to share the things we love and look at the things others love that, personally, I could spend hours just drifting on the web.  Today I thought I would share some of my recent favorites and hope that by doing this regularly, I can get my drifting under control.

First up is The Monster Engine.  This is a website by Dave Devries sharing his project to make children's drawings into realistic pieces of art.  If you haven't checked it out, you should head over there.
Cool, right?

The next one doesn't need any description, because you can just watch the YouTube video here:

Next is some gardening tips about growing basil.  I haven't tried them yet, but I am restarting my basil plants and plan on using these tips in the next few months.

My fourth favorite this week is Snoogs and Wilde, an etsy shop that sells cards and other stationary with original art featured.  Check out this wolf birthday card!
How awesome is that?

And last, a piece of jewelry I have been drooling over.
It is from BANJOandBONE on etsy.  How unique, right?

What are your favorite internet finds?  And how do you control the urge to drift?

Today's crafting

I have been sewing all day, that and reorganizing my scrap stash.  I have way too much fabric at this point, and I am not sure how I am going to use it all.  Anyway, I made a pillow case to fit an 18" throw pillow for my etsy shop.  I plan on listing it tomorrow, but I thought I would preview it here first.

Work in Progress

I am working on another wedding invitation painting.  Anyone recognize this background?  Can you guess who we will be masquerading as this time?

Stuffed Dino

I made a prototype stuffed dino.  Further versions may be a bit more simple.  I pieced and hand stitched each panel.  I feel like I made a fearsome predator a bit over cute.  Anyway, the pictures say it all.

And while it was in progress:
