Handmade Holidays (continued)

Next up on the handmade holidays: The Helmet.

This Moleskine is not your average Moleskine. It's been cleverly laser etched by Modofly to display a intricate design of a Medieval helmet. The photos just don't do this stuff justice. Seriously, if you've been thinking about getting one, and aren't sure, go for it.
  • Available in two different sizes
  • Customizable by different page types: lined, sketch, squared, reporter, or watercolor.
  • Tons of various designs available by different artists.
They may be a bit pricy at $32 for the large size, but they're worth it. You can purchase them from their website or their Etsy shop.

Handmade Holidays

Now that the gifts have finally been exchanged, I thought I'd use this as a chance to show off some of the handmade items that I've both given and received for the holidays. I've been aching to do this for some time now, but haven't had a chance due to a suspicion that some people may have seen their gifts on this blog.

First up, the Shark King:

I managed to snag the Original Shark King for a friend of mine who likes sharks. PoorDogFarm makes lovely watercolors, and they're hilarious. I also ordered an ornate gold frame online to frame it in, and overall the gift receiver nearly died laughing and said it was very 'grand.' Perfect.
