Energy & Sustainability

The always-innovative Diane Gilleland has a great tutorial up on CraftSylish on how to craft with VHS tapes. She makes bookends, loomed flowers, a macrame bracelet, and offers a bunch of other creative ideas. I’ve been wanting to get into using cassette and VHS tape to craft, and this is a great springboard.


I'm a word nerd who loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon. I was an editor on the first 40 volumes of MAKE, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. In particular, covering art is my passion — after all, art is the first thing most of us ever made. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for untouched powder fields and ideal alpine lakes.
