DIY: Corkboard Blocks

image7Sometimes you have a bunch of scraps that can happily come together to create real DIY goodness. I had a bunch of left over scrap wood, but nothing big enough to really make anything. I also had a bunch of sheets of cork board laying that I had used for another project ages ago. One good brainstorm later, the two came easily together to make a pretty nifty and helpful thing.

image6 (2)I’ll be honest, the coffee snob in me will most likely be disappointed at most of the latest coffee trends. However, I’m extremely happy that every one seems to be boarding the cold brew train. Cold brew is a delicious alternative to watery, tasteless ice coffee.

Nick and Tesla’s Special Effects Spectacular by “Science Bob” Pflugfelder and Steve Hockensmith

Fangirls, I love Quirk Books.  It’s a publishing company that seems like it can do no wrong, and I can’t get enough of it.  I first heard of Quirk when I found out about The Fangirl’s Guide to the Galaxy, by Sam Maggs, that will be released early next month.  Of course it peaked my interest, it’s about Fangirls.  Then I realized that Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children was also from Quirk.  After that, I listened to Eric Smith’s The Geek’s Guide to Dating, and read the sequel to Miss Peregrine (Hollow City), and it has continued to escalate.  Believe me when I say that the pure joy that comes with reading a Quirk book has continued through my reading of Nick and Tesla’s Special Effects Spectacular.
