<p><em>"My boys (husband included, but especially the boys!) are obsessed with the game Angry Birds. They like the game, but they really like to play a real life version they invented, where they chuck objects at each other. (Don't worry! They use safe projectiles for this!) I want to make their game a little more fun for them, so I am creating some Angry Birds and pigs for them to play with!"</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/adt/auto/1291789475.usr110024.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>Yes, you can have your own <a href="http://obsessivelystitching.blogspot.com/2010/12/angry-birds-plush.html" target="_blank">Angry Bird</a> with a little sewing knowledge.

Whip up an <a href="http://missanthropistskitchen.wordpress.com/2010/12/05/creation-of-the-iphone-cake-in-pictures-sort-of/#comment-63" target="_blank">iPhone cake</a>! The cake is a bit more involved (and probably more advanced than my cake decorating skills) but it will sure turn heads at your next party for your favorite techie! <img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/adt/auto/1291789485.usr110024.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>If you have any Android related crafts, we would love to see them! So get crafting!</p><p>&nbsp;</p>
