Featured Friday: Krukrustudio

Who doesn't want a Dalek backpack?!

Etsy seller Krukrustudio makes these amazing Dalek backpacks, along with other Doctor Who themed backpacks, bags, tablet covers, and more. And, if you're not a Doctor Who fan, they've got a wide array of other objects reconstructed in felt or leather and turned into bags.

If it weren't for the Doctor Who ones, I'd have a VERY hard time picking out my favorite--all of their bags are beautifully detailed and really eye-catching!

Featured Friday: Watty's Wall Stuff

If you're looking for cute but non-traditional things to decorate your walls with, look no further than Watty's Wall Stuff. Here, you'll find all sorts of great little cross stitched phrases and pictures. But not to fear--this is not your mother's cross stitch. Unless your mother is cool with occasional swearing, weird or geeky catch phrases, and other strangeness, all rendered in beautiful cross stitch! I super-duper love the pictured cross stitch, which is a fantastic They Might Be Giants nod!

Featured Friday: The Art of Leilani Joy

My sister-in-law recently posted a picture of her latest purchase, and as soon as I saw it, I knew I had to get one of my own. Luckily, she was able to point the way to The Art of Leilani Joy, where I was able to buy my own print of this lovely Ophelia (of Hamlet fame) print!

The Art of Leilani Joy has original artwork, prints in a variety of sizes, clothing, and little accessories like key rings that feature smaller versions of the art. I absolutely love her use of color, and the print that is waiting to go up on my wall is going to be a lovely splash of color on our drab apartment walls!
