I've been reunited with my precious computer in time to share some Wednesday links!!

Russian nesting dolls - Matryoshka - have become a superduper huge design trend. They're popping up everywhere! Apparently you can

throw Matryoshka dolls instead of grenades

in Call of Duty: Black Ops. I'm not a big FPS fan, but... well... a trend is a trend.

Stacking - super cute right?

I am particularly intrigued by


, a delightfully fun XBox Arcade puzzle game that features some of the coolest art I've seen in a video game.

In honour of this wonderfully creative merger of arts, crafts, and gaming. I thought I'd share my collection of  Matryoshka related crafty linkery!

Get the links after the jump!

  1. This Matryoshka card from Zakka Life rocks my socks - it's a fun variation on the paper doll!
  2. These fabric nesting doll puppets featured on Etsy's Storque blog would be such a sweet, simple project to make for your little ones.
  3. Matryoshka fabric? Why not! I would love to make Rei a dress from this adorable print.
  4. I think these nesting doll gourds are the sweetest thing, and the wonderfully detailed tutorial is a great intro to working with gourds. These are very much on my to-do list.
  5. I've seen these Matryoshka measuring cups all over the internet, and would dearly love to see some in my cupboard.

Now go on, get stacking!
