Felt Cat Bed

Last week this little family adopted a rescue cat from an ASPCA shelter in Manhattan. While we are still trying to figure out a name (most difficult process in history) the cat is super happy and so are my kids. And I have discovered pet accessories. What a huge market! Can we talk about this felted cat bed. Made me smile.

Zoetropes is a pre-film animation technique that relies on a rotating sequence of images or objects that’s photographed or displayed with a strobe light to create the illusion of motion.

Tattly = 4

Tattly turns four

Today’s a big day! Tattly turns 4! What was meant as a side project so my kids could walk around with cool temporary tattoos, designed by actual artists, illustrators and designers has taken off like a rocket. We are now in over 1,000 stores around the world including the Tate Modern Shop, MoMA, JCrew and have a roster of over 100 artists. Someone pinch me!

We’re celebrating the big milestone with our yearly “happy our birthday to you sale”: Now thru Monday, July 13th, take 50% off with code BDAYSUIT. This year’s The Super Set includes a gift from us: an advance offering of the upcoming Application Kit which includes a Tattly Sponge, Water Bottle, and an It’s Only Temporary Apron with a matching Tattly designed by Ladyfingers Letterpress.

It’s fun being 4, right?

An Unconventional NYC Friendship

Ricky Syers is an off-beat 50 year old street performer who found his calling as a puppeteer after a lifetime of manual labor. While performing in New York City’s Washington Square Park, he met Doris Diether, an 86 year old community activist. They became friends and he made a marionette that looks just like her. Now she’s joined his act and the two of them can often be seen performing together.

Notifly is a calendar notification device that sits on your desk and lets you know when you have a meeting, by blowing a bubble. It’s one of three joy-filled conceptual provocations created by IDEO NY designers for Studio 360’s Redesigns series. The goal of these inventions: turn much-dreaded Mondays into wahoo-worthy Mon-yays!

8 Lessons from Mister Rogers

I didn’t grow up with Mister Rogers, but his advice rings true even as a grown-up. Better late than never.
