There is a new site that will anonymously send your enemies glitter in the mail!
Covered by every major news channel around the globe, a new product has taken the world by (glittery) storm within the space of a few days. The ultimate tool for revenge and trolling, you can now anonymously send your foes an envelope filled with glitter, and according to Ship Your Enemies Glitter, your unlucky recipient will be “finding that shit everywhere for weeks.”
According to the website founder Mat Carpenter (who also writes the Sofa Moolah blog), glitter is “the herpes of the craft world” and “that shit gets everywhere”. There is something equal parts delightful and evil about the whole creative concept, not to mention, the copy is brilliant, which is why it has captured the imagination of the entire world in just a few days. We all have enemies, and we all have a love-hate relationship with glitter. And we all know at least one person who deserves some beautifully spiteful, infuriatingly annoying, yet mostly harmless revenge – that we could dish out without being found out. This business concept has completely and utterly nailed it.
After receiving orders in the thousands and making revenue well over AUD $20,000 and counting, the 22-year-old Aussie entrepreneur and creative genius behind the website was forced to stop taking orders, since it was just meant to be a joke and a side project that he was messing around with while still on holidays. To give you an idea of the speed that the website went viral, the domain name shipyourenemiesglitter.com was only registered on 31st December 2014 and is now set to be sold for over USD $70,000 a mere 3 weeks later.
Since glitter mail sales have been paused on the Ship Your Enemies Glitter site and the business is now up sale on Flippa, one competitor website (among many) has sprung up to the challenge of sending glittery hate mail. You can actually send your enemies glitter here.
UPDATE: The website sold for USD $85,000. Not a bad way to make a year’s salary in less than a month. That’s like winning the internet lottery!

Wow! This DIY branch coat rack is an incredible example of repurposing/recycling a natural object for a stunning effect in the home that’s also a really useful piece of furniture design!
The designers have taken a natural branch of the right height and strength to create a floor-to-ceiling coat hanger and bag holder for the home entrance. They have painted the branches white to match the walls, which emphasizes the shape and shadow effects. I would love to have this branch coat rack at my front door!
Is this your image? Let me know and I’ll credit you!
By the way – have you seen the branch coat rack below? It’s made from recycled mangosteen wood and is a great idea for those looking for the above effect but with something a little less permanent (helloooo, renters like me!). You can buy it here and here.
When I first saw this picture of a Japanese taiyaki hot cakes, I was immediately captured by how detailed and delicious these traditional sweets looked. I have eaten something similar in Hong Kong, where the edge of the mini pancake is crispy and crunchy to bite into, but the batter in the middle is still soft, sweet and dewy. But the ones in Hong Kong are more like round like little balls, I have never seen the fish shaped pancakes until now. And of course, I’m hungry just looking at them… anyone else craving to have a bite of a fish shaped pancake, like I am now?
If you want try making your own at home, you can buy a Taiyaki maker here.*

The Copco Bag Cap seals in the freshness of bagged foods without removing the item from the original packaging. Absolute genius! I could use a few of these in my pantry. It’s basically a lid that you affix to the top of chip or crisp packets, sugar bags, snack packets, or any kind of packaging to keep the contents fresh and easy to dispense without having to transfer your food to another container. I’m impressed by the smart design, and have even seen the variation of a coffee bag cap with scoop available on Amazon as well as the small and medium sized bag caps.

This custom 2-in-1 fish tank / dog kennel is simply insane! Apparently, the story goes that the photographer went to their local vet clinic to drop off their dog for surgery and was surprised to see this awesome fish tank dog house. This is a great example of the designer combining two unrelated products in an unexpected way to create something new and eye opening. Nailed it!

This is a fun way to display your pesky collection of spoons, spatulas and other bits and bobs – a Lego kitchen utensil holder! You can easily build it using leftover pieces that might otherwise be floating around on the floor, digging into your feet and getting stuck up the vacuum hose – (am I right?)…
