Social media icon Easter eggs. Because, why not?

If you’re going to Instagram your Easter eggs today, why not try Instagramming a Pinterest-ready Easter egg with a Twitter icon, then save it on Flickr? Or something. Well, you can do that if you’re crafty enough to emulate these amazing social media Easter eggs created by Nataly Birch on Deviant Art. Or if the idea of actually making them IRL is a big no, you can download them for free and feature them as dock icons or turn them into share buttons for your blog or website. Or, just share them on Instagram. With credit, of course. That’s Easter, 2016-style. Find the...

Eep opp ork, ah-ah, that means I love you.

Today we’re wishing all our favorite techie parents a very happy Valentine’s day with the help of some Jetson’s lyrics, and a collection of super cool handmade punk felt heart robots courtesy of Utah crafter, Ginny Penny who makes what she calls “messy little robots.” Aren’t they the best? They’re longer lasting than flowers, less caloric than champagne truffles, and would look pretty fab propped up on top of my laptop monitor, which is also something I can’t say for either flowers or truffles.

It brought eager New Yorkers and tourists alike scavenging the city, Eggi app uploaded to cell phones, to track down, photograph and share eggs designed by the likes of Julian Schnabel, William Wegman, Carolina Herrera, Jeff Koons, and Ralph Lauren. Check out #thebigegghunt on Instagram and see the amazing range of eggs in all five boroughs. (Yes, even Staten Island!) Some of the photographers are hoping to win the...

How to dye Easter eggs? Martha Stewart Easter egg app to the rescue.

I’ve seen all sorts of tutorials on how to dye Easter eggs and I’ll be honest, I’ve never really mastered the art myself. But now thanks to the Martha Stewart Easter Egg app, I’m an expert dyer. Is that what they’re called?
