Redditor Amathev decided to create a twitter account for the Universe with the express purpose of responding to tweets containing the word universe. The results have been nothing short of inspired.

Bittersweet to announce my departure from CRAFT Magazine. Just time to move on and seek some new adventures. Thanks for all the crafty inspiration, and mostly for all the wonderful friendships! Here's my final post (after almost 2,900 posts!!1!) on CRAFT.

Agreed! You saw +Limor Fried 's workshop set, right? I adore that. More of that, please! 

On my first shift at the Lego store, a little girl (I'd say about 9 or 10 years old) came in with her dad, and went straight for the Avengers sets. I went over and asked if she was in to the Avengers, and she said, "YES! YES!" so I asked who was her favorite (honestly, thinking I'd hear "Black Widow!") and she said, "IRON MAN! No! HULK! No! THOR! I can't decide!" She went on to explain all about Loki being an evil brother to Thor, and on and on and on. She was so rad. She apparently had been trying to make her own Avengers minifigs at home with other minifigs she already had. She was such a cool kid, and our interactions that day (they were in the store for a good 20-30 minutes) helped give me some hope!

Heh heh - +Andrew Salomone  finds the best stuff for CRAFT. 
Artist Heather Muise crocheted a decapitated rat head and filled it with catnip in order to create a delightfully macabre cat toy. This probably seems totally normal to the cat. She also made a sever...
