round about:
mustachioed kidlets & bravery badges

Chikdren's DIY projects - Modern Toys - Shusha Toys

Looking back over this past week, I can pull it altogether into one embarrassing fact: I woke up Thursday morning with what I would have to call a case of iPad Elbows. My arms were so sore (and still are actually), and the placement of the pain is clearly highlighting the way I hold my iPad out in front of me. I’ve been in this crazy research mode lately – burning through Pineterest, Etsy, Blogs, and the web. And I do all of it on my iPad. I wonder if anyone has researched the appropriate ergonomic angles for iPad usage?!

Round about the world wide web this week:

  • Handmade Charlotte gathered up an impressive list of great DIY links for all of us.
  • What a cute way to play with your family’s favorite faces – see the quick how-to at Playful Learning.
  • This super simple idea for making Bravery Badges has me really inspired, we could use some. via lilsugar.
  • I’ve been spying Russian design team Shusha Toys all over the place, and for good reason: each design is beautifully executed.
  • I really need to take this phrase and iron it on to everything I own right now. Get your own from How About Orange.
  • Check out the crazy series of toy photography from The Secret Life of Toys – I love the Wonder Woman photo. But there’s lots of Star Wars too if that’s your thang.

I call it “iPad elbow.” it was especially bad at Christmas when I would sit back the recliner and pin for 2-3 hours each night — so excited about my new Pinterest account then. I absolutely cannot have armrests when I work on mine, otherwise shooting pain.

Oh my god, it’s not just me! Yep, I’ve been reclining alot on my couch, then holding the iPad up: bad news.
