How to Build Your Own Snack Stadium

I have this funny stadium-shaped dish I found at a Goodwill a few years ago and only break it out for the rare occasions when I am a. watching football and b. am excited enough to make snacks. When I brought it over to Rachel’s for the game last week, she told me about snack stadiums. With the Super Bowl coming up, I knew I wanted to make my own.

DIY: Typographic Guess Who

Okay, remember Guess Who? It may have been awhile since you last played, so here’s a refresher:

• You start with all of the tiles up, your own card in front

• You ask your opponent questions about who is on their card, and use your tiles essentially as notes. “Does your person have glasses?” “Is your person wearing a hat?” depending on their answer, you turn over tiles until you only have one or two remaining, and then you can guess.

I thought this would be a really great way to experiment with those learning typography. You could ask questions like “Does your typeface have slab serifs?” “Is it a script typeface?” You’d both need to be able to use type anatomy and your knowledge of type anatomy to win. Since you can’t exactly buy a blank Guess Who board, I decided to make my own:

Finally, my dream of being an instructor on Skillshare has come true! Last weekend I wrote, filmed, performed in, and edited my very own twenty-minute class on how to make, you guessed it, handmade pasta.

Inspiration Fridays: Paper Quilling

Paper quilling is such a crazy, amazing little medium—it must take hours to make every piece, and they’re so fragile and delicate. Instead of trying to do it myself, here’s a round up of my favorite examples.

For Play: Shirts as Background

Inspired by the collection I posted a few days ago, I decided to play around and make my own versions. As I worked, I realized this is similar to this concept I’ve been chasing for years—projecting fabric patterns on to white clothing, to create moving patterns (since fabric design is static).

Music Festival Schedule Temporary Tattoos

As of July 2014, I’ve been to four major music festivals in my life. I know this isn’t a ton, but I’ve already experienced my share of the heat, the rain, the walking, the sweating, and the dancing. I’m a schedule person—I like to know when to be where, and who I’m seeing. Festivals usually give out paper brochures or booklets that let you keep track of your weekend, but what if they get soggy and wet in the torrential downpour of Shaky Knees 2014? What if you keep your schedule in your phone and the phone dies?
