I urge you to please notice when you are happy, and exclaim or murmur or think at some point, "If this isn't nice, I don't know what is."

Given that my companies Tattly and CreativeMornings run on Dropbox, I was excited to see that they launched a new collaborative tool called Paper. It enables teams to collaborate on different projects. It’s a virtual piece of paper where teams can write things down and that can also handle things like YouTube videos, Google docs, and images, all of which automatically appear embedded on the page when added. Interesting.
Woah! Explore Google Maps’ beautiful 3D imagery of the Himalayas alongside a 500 foot Yeti named Verne.
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.
I usually don’t like plain decorative things without a purpose but this miniature pine forest won my heart.
Next time you have a photoshoot you might want to ask the photographer to use a 28mm lens. When they say “The camera adds 10 pounds” they’re not kidding.
The WE LOVE YOU project is a simple but powerful reassurance to our black boys and men that they are a part of a larger community that loves and supports them. Well done Bryon Summers and Sally Rumble. You are making a difference.
After the success of #WELOVEYOUNYC shoot, they will be hitting other cities around the country in the near future. Sign up here if you’d like to stay updated.
Not sure when I would have use for this water transporter but I strangely want one.
The HotTug is the world’s first wood-fired hot tub that you can bathe and “sail” in. Float down a river in the middle of winter, sipping a cold drink and soaking in the steaming hot water! SO FUN!
I totally want one of these Vintage Slotted Menu Board to tell my kids whats on the menu this week, or to send subliminal messages to my team. But yikes, #expensive.
This motorized suitcase made me laugh! My kids would totally lose their minds over this way of getting around the airport. SO MUCH FUN!

The fine folks over at Tinybop launched yet another wonderful app: Skyscraper! It allows you to playfully contract your own skyline of buildings, send people up and down in elevators, spark a blackout or clog the toilet, fix a pipe or put out a fire and so on! The app was beautifully designed by Berlin-based illustrator Mike Ellis.
