Mobiles are lovely for babies’ rooms, but what’s stopping adults from having them as well? Nothing, of course! Which is great, because not only do they exist, but they are available in all sorts of designs. Including this cute little Super Mario one!
Created by MadamFandom on Etsy, this mobile is made out of perler beads and chains. There are Thwomps in the main circular structure, Mario dangling in the centre and glow in the dark Boos all around. An item like this would make a great addition to a games room!
FUS RO DAH!
I’ve been re-playing my way through skyrim over the last few weeks and its got me thinking about crafting and cross stitchings for the game. Here is a roundup of some of the cool projects out there that people have done… there were a lot to choose from, so here are my favorites.

So many awesome projects to choose from…
If there’s one thing I’ve learned from browsing the many craft and DIY sites on the internet, it’s that just about anything can be upcycled and repurposed into amazing and wonderful things. I never made the connection between vinyl records and clocks until today, when I found this cool item!
This clock, from Vinylastico on Etsy, features Link and Zelda in a pretty Art Nouveau styled design. It’s 12″ (30cm), It’d look awesome on any wall!
The shop also sells tons of other clocks, including ones from games and movies, as well as custom designs!
When I come across things like this on my internet travels, it makes me want to pick up crochet again. When my friend gives my hooks back, maybe I’ll attempt this awesome Snorlax!
This adorable (and large) Snorlax was designed and created by Ana Amélia Mendes Galvão, otherwise known as MiaHandcrafter. It stands at about 18 inches (46cm) tall!
So snuggly! If crocheting is your jam, there’s a free pattern on “Mia’s Atelier“. There are other free patterns there too, including Pokemon, anime stuff and more!
