  1. For the guy with the rake: Ive got a few thousand leaves if he want to practice, I bet he would be good at crop circles… really beautiful stuff and it always amazes me the geometry that these people that do crop circles and sand art in such a large scale can pull off in perfect symetry.

  2. Amazing! LOVE the sand art! Just incredible. And of course the soap bubbles, musical instruments, and everything is so amazing, too.

    I have been thinking about getting some kind of multi-tool.. I think I need one of those!! It has everything you might possibly need!! Hahaha.
