Here are the photos I took while working the second strand of the cable of the #octCAL project. I honestly don't know if it will help but at least it'll give you a visual of what it looks like when it's right.

"Like what I'm seeing of +OpenROV Seems like a very interesting project - DIY platform for undersea exploration.  The maker movement at its best."

How Do You Pour Your Tea?
obviously with gravity as the main ingredient

Discovered this video through local Bay Area company Fox and Moon Tea. When handmaking tea, this certainly beats a matcha whisk.

Featured Maker - +Masha du Toit
our lady of puppetry on G+

Recently when I (+Natalie Villalobos) posted about a puppetry group from my profile, +Diana Studer introduced me to today's featured maker via the comments section. I was thrilled when I saw the pictures of the puppet that Masha is making - a mermaid. She's posting about the progress she's making, and giving us insight in to her decision making process. Check out the pictures from her G+ profile and ones I've pulled from her blog.

I fired the Mermaid head and hands today – super sculpey can be fired in a normal oven at 130 degrees Celsius so no special equipment needed, except an oven thermometer. Here’s the Mermaid hot out of the oven. Her eyes look a bit different, I think foil on the back of the beads has wrinkled a little, but it actually looks quite nice.

Cozy Brains - Up For Grabs!

It's been awhile since we posted, and thought this cozy knit beanie would be just the thing to perk up your spirits now that we're heading into Autumn. You'll be hearing more from the Handmade Team soon - thanks for sticking with us!

I've gotten permission to make and sell these. I haven't made any of them yet, I'm waiting on supplies to arrive. The first one is already spoken for but I'm sure I'll be making more, especially if I see interest in it :)

Floating Gardens
make your house look like it has flying plants!

Found via +Thomas Morffew and

“As the centrepoint of the plant keeps changing,” says the string gardener, “the plants grow in a way that makes them look more powerfull and like they are floating in mid air."

The string gardens are meant to be viewed at eye level. Some of the plants are covered with moss and placed in a bowl, others are woven into horizontal nets wich are coverd with moss, clover and grass. Some float in their environments alone, some are grouped with others creating a sort of horticultural symphony. They are undeniably gorgeous in their zen quality. On a practical note: the gardens are irrigated in different ways. Some have built-in glass resevoirs. Others have an artificial root made from different kinds of moss which transports the water to the ball, others a dripping system that keeps keeps the containing net consistently wet. The majority of the plants need watering every three days to stay adequately saturated.

Not my taste, but very interesting. It did remind me of a scene in the movie Coma. :)
