Being married to a hardcore computer nerd, this really rings true in our house. Flickr user vonkrankipantzen cross-stitched this sampler for her brother’s birthday. The detail of the border is amazing.

Apparently, there’s an annual contest in Vancouver where artists make all sorts of amazing sculptures from canned food. After the event, it’s all donated to food banks. They’ve got pictures of entries from the past four years – definitely worth a look.
multibeavo posted this Goomba t-shirt on Craftster today. She made it for her son using contact paper to make a stencil. The ringer tee looks perfect with this!
Craftster user pinkleo sewed this cute little pin of Harry Potter’s owl, Hedwig. At about 2 1/2 inches tall, it’s almost like having Hedwig riding on your shoulder.
