How to: Make a DIY Masculine Leather Watch Strap

I know. For many, the era of the cell phone has rendered the wristwatch useless for some. But not me. I'm an enternal watchwearer, forever doomed to feeling naked without that one accessory that must stay on me. I may be used to the weight, may just not like the look of my bare left wrist, or perhaps I'm just obsessive enough that I need not to have to pull something out of my pocket to know what time it is. (It's that… read more

Vegetables Turned into Creepy Creatures

created at: 03/22/2012

While it seemed a little outlandish to me at first, this design makes total sense for people camping in places with uneven or muddy ground.

created at: 03/21/2012
