Loving the super spooky limited edition Graveyard Set.
My son would totally approve: Zubits are magnetic shoe closures that easily snap together allowing the wearer to quickly put on or remove a pair of shoes without having to tie the laces.
This Cheese Degrees Cutting Board made me laugh. My dad constantly lectured me and my sister on what angles we are allowed to cut cheese.
Over on Picture This kids can draw their own fabric patterns, send in the designs and receive a custom cut-and-sewn dress in the mail. So much fun!
This minimalist looking Cord Keeper makes sure your power cables stay on top of your desk or nightstand instead of flying off the back every time something is unplugged. Made by hand in Madison, Wisconsin from reinforced concrete.
Fridge Files extend storage beyond the flat surface of the refrigerator (or any other magnetic surface). For gift cards, business cards, coupons, letters, etc, etc, etc. Made by hand in Madison, Wisconsin.
This coming Friday I will be taking the kids to the Swiss Alps for our yearly sausage-eating-fresh-air-breathing-family-hugging-summer-vacation. Ever since they were little, they have been getting gifts on the airplane. It has been one of my secret weapons to keep them entertained. Simple, tiny surprises, such as stickers, post-itnotes and washable markers, tiny puzzles, etc. They’d get one whenever they would start go stir-crazy. Even though they’re older now and totally capable to entertain themselves, they love the tradition of getting little surprises. They don’t know yet that I will be surprising them with Kikkerland’s Zip & Flip Pillows. It’s a night flight to Zurich so they’ll come in handy. I can already see their smiles…
Tasarım Takarım (I Wear Design) turns children’s drawings into fine jewelry, translating the doodles into small pendants made of silver or gold. Totally doing this.

In order to better understand its e-commerce customers, Mailchimp started an online store. The concept is simple: They collaborate with creative people to make fun, unique products for good causes. First they started out with design-y socks, and yesterday they launched 4 pins inspired by some of their favorite Atlanta rappers. The one above gets my vote. My favorite part of this experiment is the newsletters they send out, documenting the challenges of starting an online store. All so familiar! Love what their doing! Also, T (6) and I got to visit Mailchimp HQ yesterday and look what happened!
Every time I grab my MacBook and see our custom CreativeMornings tabtag, it puts a smile on my face. I am usually not someone that would E-V-E-R put a sticker on anything I own, but the concept of tabtags won me over: They are glowing (!) and reusable MacBook stickers. You can remove them without a trace and reuse them over and over. SO MUCH FUN!
Perfect proportions observed in nature often follow the theory of the golden ratio. Historically, artists, designers and architects have used it as a means of defining beauty in a theoretical rather than intuitive way. Use the Golden Section Finder, a pocket sized gazing device, to locate the proportional perfection in your surroundings. Totally going to use this with my kids, walking around the city!
These Know Yourself Cards by The School of Life are going to help you understand who you really are: what you want, how you feel and why you react as you do. A lack of self-knowledge can be trouble, for it makes us get into the wrong relationships, pick unsatisfactory jobs or spend money unwisely. As Socrates said: ‘Know Yourself’.
