Getting Crafty - Techno-Style

(x-posted from Literary Tease)

Here's a cool site I found while I was surfing the web while trying to figure out what to do with this stash of vintage alarm clocks that I have:

Make

"MAKE: Technology on Your Time, published by O'Reilly Media. MAKE is a quarterly publication from O'Reilly for those who just can't stop tinkering, disassembling, re-creating, and inventing cool new uses for the technology in our lives. It's the first do-it-yourself magazine dedicated to the incorrigible and chronically incurable technology enthusiast in all of us. MAKE celebrates your right to tweak, hack, and bend technology any way you want."

This site rocks! Some of the projects include transforming a can of Play-doh into a radio, making an amp out of an empty tin of Altoids, and a DIY skating robot. Man... now technology is even better! There are a ton of cool projects happening at the Makezine Blog. (These peeps also do Craftzine, which is also cool and not so tech-y.)

My fellow craftsters might want to try this project: Suitcase bags made from Vintage Men's Suits. Post pictures of your projects!

I'm still trying to figure out what to do with the alarm clocks, but now I have a use for all those empty Altoids cans. Hmm...
