Use your scanner to make art

August 22 |
Photo and art by Leah

Scan your hand — or cat, or whatever — print it out and slip it in a document frame. Or, as Leah put it…

I got one of those cheap scanner/printers free when I bought my computer, so I made some wall art 🙂

  1. Earth worms are great and I don't get squeamish easily, but I gotta say… that .gif skeeves me out just the tiniest bit!

  2. Why I love Offbeat Home: every single image in this post is 100% inspiration for me!

  3. Much easier/cheaper toothpaste squeezer: When you get the tube, make sure to start at the bottom. When you get a bit of space, use a binder clip to hold the bottom and make sure you get as much out of the tube as possible. Not as pretty, but definitely practical, and chances are you have a binder clip lying around. Works for other things in squeezy-tubes too (Neosporin, acne cream, etc).

  4. The playmobil mentioning person may well be me! I am obsessed with playmobil with a crazy huge collection of it. I am flat hunting right now and I intend on putting playmobil figures on doorframes as well as having a clear space to play with them.

    I have several of those figures actually. This makes me smile.
