I’m what you might call an “enthusiastic” crafter–you know, when someone isn’t good at something but keeps doing it, so others feel compelled to say something nice so as not to ruin his fun. “Well, you’re certainly enthusiastic! Good for you!”
That’s about all the intro I need to give before I show you my homemade stand for the Kindle 2:
I reviewed a much nicer, professionally designed stand earlier this month, and it made me realize I wanted a stand of my own. Being cheap, prone to occasional insomnia, and in possession of a box of Sculpey from previous craft projects, I solved the problem a few nights ago.
It’s easy to make, and easy to customize using more Sculpey, paint, or whatever you can glue to the thing. (Nobody said crafting was pretty.) Just be sure to wrap the bottom of your Kindle in plastic cling wrap before pressing it into the clay.
Below is a slideshow in case you want to see it in more detail and try it out for yourself. If you can’t see it, you can visit the Flickr set.
