…It’s TGI Friday: The Best Paper Airplane In The World?

Best Paper Airplane In The World

This weekend, spend a few minutes working your way through the 35 steps involved in folding the world’s most perfect paper airplane:

Once you’ve mastered the basics, you can then move on to making an alternative T-tail design, making it legal to fly in the world record paper airplane competition, making a Guinness World Records compliant tail, and more.

It’s definitely not the most advanced project, but sometimes it’s fun just to unplug from the rest of the world for a little bit and focus on the simple things in life.

LemonadeYou know what they say about life and lemons…

This weekend, as the temperatures continue to rise, and you’re suddenly well aware of the fact that it is summer outside after all, grab a glass, add some lemons, pour on some sugar, finish it off with a splash of water, and make your own lemonade.

You don’t need to stick to the classics though, as Real Simple has put together some fantastic recipes for remade lemonades.

…It’s TGI Friday: Camera Toss?

Camera Toss

This weekend, grab your camera (or your friend’s camera), set the timer, and toss it in the air for a new style of photography called Camera Tossing.

The results are often a beautiful art piece that is less about documenting a moment, and more about creating an emotional picture that is filled with color and motion.

Check out COLOURlover’s article on Camera Tossing for a brief history of the technique, and some fantastic examples that should give you more than enough inspiration to get going.
