I've been reunited with my precious computer in time to share some Wednesday links!!
Russian nesting dolls - Matryoshka - have become a superduper huge design trend. They're popping up everywhere! Apparently you can throw Matryoshka dolls instead of grenades in Call of Duty: Black Ops. I'm not a big FPS fan, but... well... a trend is a trend.
|Stacking - super cute right?|
I am particularly intrigued by Stacking, a delightfully fun XBox Arcade puzzle game that features some of the coolest art I've seen in a video game.
In honour of this wonderfully creative merger of arts, crafts, and gaming. I thought I'd share my collection of Matryoshka related crafty linkery!
Get the links after the jump!
- This Matryoshka card from Zakka Life rocks my socks - it's a fun variation on the paper doll!
- These fabric nesting doll puppets featured on Etsy's Storque blog would be such a sweet, simple project to make for your little ones.
- Matryoshka fabric? Why not! I would love to make Rei a dress from this adorable print.
- I think these nesting doll gourds are the sweetest thing, and the wonderfully detailed tutorial is a great intro to working with gourds. These are very much on my to-do list.
- I've seen these Matryoshka measuring cups all over the internet, and would dearly love to see some in my cupboard.
