Artists – We Need You

This CreativeMornings talk by Paola Mendoza, Artistic Director of the WomensMarch, moved me to tears. Please, give it 20mins of your time. It will light a fire in your creative heart.

“It is the creative community’s responsibility to reopen the heart of America.”
– Paola Mendoza

Add your recommendation in a comment below. I will look at all of them.

Common Sense Media

Under what rock was I hiding all this time that I have never heard of Common Sense Media? I told my friends that I made the mistake of showing my kids a movie the other day that I thought was perfectly fine for their age. It wasn’t. Ops!

Common Sense Media looks like the site I should have consulted first.

“Stay Out of Politics”

The Uncomfortable


I am having so many feelings looking at these images titled The Uncomfortable, a series of inconvenient household items designed by Katerina Kampran.

I want to be here

This aerial photograph by Niaz Uddin made me gasp. I wouldn’t mind being that person in that kayak right now.

Rainbow Banana

Hello there, rainbow banana.

Book Lunch Box

A lunch box that looks like a book. YES!

Molekule Air Purifier

This is the firs time I’d consider letting a Air Purifier in my home. Question for those of you that own an air purifier: Do you sense a difference?

Moon Air Freshener

I like this moon shaped air freshener.

FREITAG Travel Bag

Whenever I think I can’t possibly love FREITAG more than I already do, they come out with a new, innovative bag, like Zeppelin, their first inflatable travel bag on wheels. The fact that it folds down when not in use gets my two thumbs up! And, of course, that each one of them is unique, as they are made out of recycled truck tarp. So much YES!

Mod Florals

I am loving the new Mod Floral Tattly Set by Inaluxe.

Laundry Punch Bag

A Laundry Punch Bag? Brilliant!

Transparent Rain Boots

As if the idea of transparent rain boots wasn’t hilarious enough, the Bobo Choses’ product photography is really next level. Hat tip!

Giant Colorful Pencils

These giant colorful pencils carved into gray Aspens by Jonna Pohjalainen made me look.

Low Budget…

This poster sums up my approach to starting companies.

Pocket Watch

Melissa Kaseman photographs the contents of her three-year-old son’s pockets as part of what she calls “a taxonomy report of a child’s imagination.” Beautiful!
