Howcast {diy videos}

I heard from Howcast today and after spending time on their website watching a bunch of diy videos, I thought you may really dig it. I love a good how-to video and see this as the next big thing on the web for all the design addicts out there - professional videos showing us how to do really cool things that design blog followers would actually want to make. Some of the videos out there are really boring and the projects are quite dreadful, but Howcast seems to have lots of videos that are very informative and well produced.

Here's a shot from How To Re Cover A Lamp Shade by the
Home Refiner. How cute is this wallpaper?

Some of my personal picks from Howcast: All of Elfya's videos, aka the Home Refiner. She's not only real cute and wears great clothes, but the laundry/craft space where the videos are shot are so Blueprint magazine. Love it. Elfya is a New York-based Interior Designer with her own website so you're dealing with a pro here. Then there's The FlowerGod - this guy really knows how to arrange flowers. How To Understand a Work Of Art,, How To Pretend You?re a Real New Yorker, How to Blog Using Wordpress (helpful stuff), even videos on wardrobe styling from Ford Models. re both pretty good too. I can't wait to watch Howcast grow - I'd love to see some more professional how-to videos on the web like these!

Psst: Boston locals, don't miss the Garden Girl over in Roxbury. What an inspiration this lady is!
