At some point last year a roaming Sacajawea coin crossed paths with JP and would not leave his person for some time after. It accompanied him in his travels across the US, seeing at least 15 states and hundreds of thousands of miles. We dubbed the migratory currency “The Coin of Truth” for its decision-making ability with respect to heads and tails assigned options. Used on everything from business decisions to restaurant options, the coin of truth functioned on one simple premise – the user must observe the decision of the coin. The coin continued to draw power from our regard, until the day we asked it whether or not it liked being with JP. A sense of foredoom set in when the coin flipped a conclusive “no”.

Now that my university is closed for winter holidays, I finally have more free time to do all the crafty things I’ve been wanting to. One of these is a lamp made from plastic cups I’ve seen at taf, the art foundation, in the Monastiraki region in the center of Athens. When I first saw it at taf, I was amazed; I looked closely and I couldn’t believe my eyes! The object itself is so peculiar, modern and alien-like it could be in any design exhibition.

This project comes to you at the request of Twitterer @GCcapitalM. I used to believe that a person could never have too many books, or too many bookmarks. Then I moved into an apartment slightly larger than some people’s closets (and much smaller than many people’s garages) and all these beliefs got turned on their naïeve little heads. But what a person can always look for more of is really cool unique bookmarks.
Welcome to flower week – five days of simple and delightful flower projects. I could probably do three weeks of flowers because there are so many different ways to create them, but I’ve limited it to five of my current favorites. Before we get started, let me make a few disclaimers: 1.
