Doll Crafting

I'm the founder of the Lammily line of dolls which promote realistic beauty standards. I'm looking for a creative person who can make doll crafting videos like in the example below: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kdVSXVtDoaA If you're crafty, creative, and think you can make videos like this, please let me know! My email is nickolaylamm@gmail.com. The videos can be very wild, such as "How to Make a Doll Moon Landing".

listing crafts

Other than knitting and sewing what would be crafts? I do woodworking ,metalworking as craft ,i do not think that those would quantify for this. Any ideas ? to expand this ie. leatherwork? wood carving? I am the guy that build stuff not the guy that thought it up.

Colored Rice Crafts

Add a splash of colorful to any room. These colorful rice creations were originally made as Easter egg decorations.  I don't see why this technique couldn't be used to make other fun decorations as well!!  A colorful rice alphabet would look nice on a child's wall.

The Dark Side of Crafting?

I was recently sent this update from UC Berkeley and Indiana University, and thought I would pass it along.  I have never had a brush with the "Dark Side" of crafting they describe here.  Have you? Do you sew clothes, print posters, or shop for craft supplies only to realize your craft has negative effects, e.g., on the consumer or society at-large, morally, socially, and/or legally? Do you see a “dark side” to craft? If so, UC Berkeley and Indiana University researchers conducting a research project on handcraft and computing would love to talk to you. We will conduct interviews by instant message, email, phone, or in person within the next few months. To help us with our research, please email Daniela at daniela@ischool.berkeley.edu, Jeff at jbardzel@indiana.edu, or Shaowen at selu@indiana.edu.   image blatantly stolen from pirateluv which just has so many other cool things on it too.

Craft-Machine Symbiosis

Guy Debord believed that all new forms of media served to further alieniate individuals from one another. McLuhan was of the opinion that all new forms of media take as its medium existing forms of media. So... knowing both of those "facts," I am still left kind of perpexled and speechless by this knit laptop interface that its inventors refer to as a BTI (Body-Technology Interface). Could this be the future of personal computing? And what does that say about humanity? Discuss amongst yourselves. (however... I think we can all agree that Becky Stern is a strange duck)
