Last set of links for the year! :D

+ Paperclips + string = earrings.

+ Deadline; a post-it stop motion.

+ The best and worst brand identities of 2011.

+ Stamp carving is something I want to try out in the new year. Here's a tutorial that I found.

+ Also this one from one of my favourite bloggers, Geninne:

+ Oldie but goodie: Vellum Mobiles. Doable for New Years' Party?

Edit: Whoops! Seems like I'd forgotten to include the last two links. They're now updated, and an extra one added! :-)


Psst! I'm Pinteresting! If anyone who's reading this is on it, let me know! :-)

The Hobbit trailer

Take a look at the trailer for "The Hobbit"! Doesn't it look amazing?!

I have only read half of "The Hobbit"... well I do have a year to catch up on my reading (the movie opens December 14th 2012)!

Other movies to look forward to: Sherlock Holmes 2, The Dark Knight Rises, and Hugo. Yay for movies!

p.s.: If you click on the link, it'll take you to the official website/trailer, which has amazing clarity.

p.p.s.: Note to self: Stop saying amazing.

Happy almost Christmas!
