Speaking of Magda Sayeg, she’s come out with new designs to customize your iPhone via Uncommon. I, too, have been planning to upload a few of my own designs to the site now that the holidays are over.

You can find her full selection of ipod cases here.

1.) For your love of technology and what it does to people and…
2.) For your love of yarn.
The good part starts at… 3:35 but the whole thing is worth watching.
Below is the portion which starts at 3:35.
