It’s Get A Hobby Week here on The Frisky, so today we’re craving something to do that produces something we can keep. Oh, perfect, how about this cross-stitch iPhone case and kit?!

And don’t forget to tell us whose hair you covet and who you think should probably be sporting a paper bag over their head these days.
After the jump, three reasons why me and a dribble bib wearer should date. Keep reading »
The world keeps trying to make Brit model/It-Girl Alexa Chung happen stateside. Chung previously hosted MTV’s midday chat show, “It’s On With Alexa Chung,” and will soon be seen in the new PBS series “Thrift America,” where she travels around the U.S. looking for hidden thrift and vintage treasures (the fact that this is a job that someone can have makes me unbelievably jealous).

Sure, Etsy is a great place to purchase Justin Bieber Unicorn Fan Art and ritual tunics with Celtic trim, but did you know you could also acquire a mighty fine set of boobies on the crafting site?
