Blogplug! “Oohsome”.

Some real-life friends of mine have started a new blog project, “Ooh, I’ve got something to show you!” over at oohsome.blogspot.com.

From the Welcome blurb:

Oohsome has evolved out of almost daily instant message discussions between Acanthus and whoozqueen on the gorgeous art, craft, fashion and design things that we find on the web and adore.

If you’re the type of person that loves to discover new things to adorn yourself with, or use, or wear, we think you will enjoy Oohsome.

In addition to our fabulous finds, we will include artist profiles, explore tutorials and techniques to be found on the web, and occasionally feature some of our own creations. For instance, above you can see a pair of earrings made by whoozqueen for a friend who was going to a formal wedding.

Oohsome hopes to be a happy mixture of the personal and professional craftsperson.

In an era where consumption often comes at the expense of our environment, we hope to showcase crafts that illustrate excellent design as well as sustainable and ethical living.

Check out this neat musical pendant, the latest entry:

My crafty appetite whetted by Oohsome, I started poking around Etsy, where I discovered these oohsome Atomic Earrings by Surly-Ramics:

  1. I think Carl’s illustration is definitely oohsome. The book should be welcome reminiscing for all of us who fell in love with Zeke online.
    What other delightful/delectable/desirable stuff have people seen lately?
