The folks behind Red Paper Plane believe that “Missions” are a whole new way to learn and play for little ones. They created mission based design challenges for the whole family, based on a creative process – 20 minutes per day for several days. This is fantastic! Especially for snowy winter weekends!
I’ll totally try the Spaceship Mission with Tilo (5) this weekend.
I am not convinced this LEGO Lunch box is all that practical but it sure would make
a my little boy’s head explode!
My friend Mac Premo recently spoke at CreativeMornings/NYC. In his talk he discusses the relationship between his art and commercial practices, and how they enhance each other.
Please note the podium he is standing next to. I would tweak the slides of my talks forever, he builds a podium that holds his hat and drink. –> !!!
Next time I go on a road trip with my kids, I’ll put this flag on my car. It sure will make all fellow traveling parents laugh.
This little guy gets to enjoy his glorious first piece of bacon. I am right there with him. Baaaaaacon!
This conversation about female friendship between Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin made me smile and want to call my girlfriends.
The Sacrificial Chair is designed to replace ‘that chair’ in your bedroom that is constantly covered in clothes. Made me smile.
Five years ago today, Cameron, Evan and I announced TeuxDeux, a simple, design-y to-do app. (Cameron’s very first product video still puts a huge smile on my face. Keep in mind, the app UI has changed since then…)
TeuxDeux was born over a lunch conversation where I shared my vision of a calendar based to-app and 3 days later we had a working prototype. 5 years and several updates and revisions later, TeuxDeux is helping keep thousands of happy user stay organized.
The secret is to keep TeuxDeux as your browser landing page, so every time you open a browser window you are being reminded what you should be working on. Organize your to-do’s on our simple, list based calendar view. Cross off what you’ve completed and whatever you don’t cross off, will automatically move to the next day. You can also create your custom ‘someday’ columns on the bottom area for the things that you just need to get out of your head. And, take your to-do’s with you on the go, with our iPhone app.
Happy 5th birthday TeuxDeux. I don’t know what I would do without you.
How would you react if someone told you that you’re beautiful? Shea Glover, a highschool student from Chicago, conducted a social experiment to find out.
I am really excited over the launch of our CreativeMornings GIF Channel. I include GIFs in my emails regularly. I find them often way more efficient as words. They bring lightness and fun to what otherwise would be a very serious and dry message.
Last Friday team Tattly launched a collaboration with Sesame Street! (Yes, my head is nearly exploding!)

What a curious looking tape dispenser this is. I love it when objects are intriguingly weird in their form.
Curtis James’ beautiful Beyond Work project is driven by a simple purpose, to unearth the working loves of people who’s jobs are often invisible, and for the stories that come out to inspires all to make the world of work respectful, humane and kind place that rewards people with more than money.
So. Much. YES!
