Time Machine

Honestly, there is no craft I have wanted to do at home more than this Time Machine posted by gmjhowe on Instructables. That is saying a lot since I love almost everything I come across on that site, but gmjhowe really put thought, time and coolness into this hand held “Vortex Distortion Space and Time Dilating Device”. Made from various materials including cardboard and “a lot of scrap and junk” he created the perfect, timeless, hand held Time Machine. Now, it’s not as roomy as the Tardis or as flashy as Bill & Ted‘s phonebooth, but it’ll get you where you need to go and you’ll look good when you get there.

Torchwood Pendant

We just finished Torchwood: Children of Earth and I was completely astounded. I didn’t think it was possible for the writers to come up with anything more dramatic and heart wrenching than season two’s finale, but they did, and after I picked my jaw off the floor and successfully pretended like I wasn’t even close to tears, I decided to look for some cool Torchwood crafts. UrsulaandOlive have posted this great Torchwood Pendant on their etsy shop. If you’re a fan of the Doctor Who spinoff, then you are probably quite familiar with the phrase that was used to open seasons one and two, but was notably missing from Children Of Earth. And, of course, if you have somehow missed Torchwood: Children of Earth, it is available on DVD and I suggest you go out and get it.
