Toy canvas

This summer I am doing Yard Sales. I found great vintage toys that I will post soon. But most importantly, I found a kit on how to make your own finger puppets!!! It is funny to think that we need a "kit" in order to make something that simple. But it is true that a self contained box with felt, sticker eyes and pens make things so much easier! At least, it invites to start something.

I also found on the web this new DIY (do it yourself) plush toy for ... artists only. The canvas shape has changed these days, and repetitively takes the form of a Ninja toy. I find the toy-canvas fun, but not that inspiring. Nothing less inviting to create than a white plush silhouette. I guess having a silhouette to depart from brings the artist into decoration mode. I wish the results will explode the toy shape itself and reinvent the shape or something ...

Lego at the kitchen table

Being bored at the kitchen table is not an option anymore with Joel Hesselgren 's set of salt and pepper shakers made of Lego. Then you can decide: More salt? More pepper? by just moving a red block around!
