Here's an older gem that crossed my feed again today:
Paper Smaug, made from the pages of the Hobbit!
Some librarians from New Zealand got together to do a thing, and it's pretty much the best thing ever:
Bahahaha! I think they're even sitting on giant books!
One of the members of my local Slug Club, Gabriela, shared the most INCREDIBLE upcycle for her son Cash's bedroom, and you've gotta see this.
She started with an old Thomas the Train bed frame:
... and transformed it into the Hogwarts Express!
I KNOW RIGHT?! So many Kermit flails over here.
I was about to ask Gabriela if I could share her pics with you guys, but then last week she got her own feature over on Inside the Magic! Sweet! So just head over there for finished photos of the whole room, like this:
She made a train tunnel wall! THIS IS AMAZING.
And you guys, that's a real dog. Cash has his own Fang! (Cash's parents are going to dress him up as Hagrid this Halloween, can't wait to see that.)
Get ready to call me a liar, because see this lightsaber built by Alexander Jones?
It's made of cardboard.
No, really! Here's a process pic as proof:
I think the trick is using that metallic paper and/or metal tape; it's INCREDIBLY convincing. Go see Alexander's post on the RPF FB page for more process photos. (And if you're like me, get ready to have an intense desire to build a paper light saber. Dang.)
And finally, this Hayes Family Vlog shared by Backstage Humor comes with it's own squad of happy onion ninjas. You have been warned:
From the Hayes:
**Malia has an autoimmune condition called Alopecia that prevents her from growing hair. She is a perfectly healthy little girl otherwise. We use our fun character interactions to promote the idea of positivity, self love, and awareness for Alopecia**
There's so much good in this video, but mostly I'm in awe of T'Challa and the Dora Milaje! They are incredible: so in character, nailing the accents, like they walked right off the screen. And then little Malia's excitement at meeting them! Ah! My heart is full.
I hope these filled up your heart, too, peeps. Now tell me, what's the sweetest thing you've seen online this week? Share your links in the comments!
