Perhaps you know someone planning to grow some epic facial hair in 2011. Or maybe you yourself need a bit of encourage to keep your hands off that Mach-3. Or, maybe you're a long time beard haver who just want to spread the gospel of whiskers.
Whatever the situation, you need to nab some of these "Don't Shave" postcards from Etsy seller I Made You a Beard. They're hand printed using vintage wooden letterpress type, and come on a nice rustic recycled kraft paper cardstock.
I Made You a Beard also sells these awesome felt and yarn options:
Sometimes, folks can get a little carried away with the gross realism of Halloween, and we need a softer, yet not cute, tongue-in-cheekly frightful craft project to do while drinking cider and watching It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.
These needle-felted eyeballs fit the bill perfectly. Scary (cause they're eyeballs), fun (cause they're made of felt), and awesome (cause you did it yourself).

There's all sorts of geek crafts floating around the blogosphere, but for some reason, these by Sehr Patola stand out amongst 'em. Perhaps it's that the gray matches 1980s Japanese plastic perfectly. Perhaps its the perfectly resourced buttons that make the scale spot-on. But, I'm pretty sure it's that tiny little LED bead on the Gameboy.
