Everyone’s giving out candy on Halloween, be the cool kid in town by handing out the adorable Boo Crew. (Technically it is a candy, but just in form of a temporary tattoo!)


Kid President believes it is time we took back the internet and did something awesome. It’s Socktober!!

What to do when lost in the woods

Love these 7 Lessons on the creative life from the U.S. Forest Service. #6 #5 is my favorite: Don’t yell, don’t run, don’t worry, and above all, don’t quit.

The Moo Luxe Project

Paper jam Luxe Project

My friend Arianna Orland teamed up with the folks over a MOO and created these stunning Moo Luxe Cards. The Luxe Project is a brand new initiative that teams talented creatives with Luxe by MOO. Their designs will be showcased for a month, and 100% of net proceeds will go to the designer’s charity of choice.

I have MOO Luxe business cards both for CreativeMornings and Tattly. Couldn’t be happier. I heart MOO.

Looks familiar? Some of Arianna’s designs are also available as Tattly! And she also sells them as beautiful posters over on Paper Jam Press

Filter Fakers

Filter Faker

Filter Fakers is a collection of Instagram photos tagged #nofilter, revealing what filter they did in fact use. Makes me think a lot of people don’t know what #nofilter means.

NYC Subway Tattly

MTA Subway Tattoos

Team Tattly is giddy over today’s long-awaited launch of the New York City Subway Set. We are working on collaborations with brands we love and we figured, since we are based in NYC, it would be lovely to start with a homage to the beautiful subway signage. If you want to know a bit more about the history of how the signage system came about, AIGA has a great article on this. And if you want to sport a Subway Tattly, head this way.

Tattly = 2 (Birthday Sale 50% off)

Tattly Birthday

Exactly two years ago, I launched Tattly aiming to fix the broken aesthetic of temporary tattoos. Never in a million years would I have expected it would grow into what it is today. We started with 15 designs and now look at a roster of over 300 and 80 contributing artists. In the past two years we have shipped to over 90 countries and are represented in over 400 stores worldwide. Needless to say, growing Tattly has been quite a learning experience for me and my hardworking team: Rusty, Yoko, Bekka, Jen, Julia, Sarah, Natalie, Brad, Nic and Kate. I am incredibly fortunate to work with such a smart, hardworking and fun group. In the end of the day, a company is nothing else but a group of likeminded humans, making it all happen. And boy, they do make things happen! I heart my team!

We are celebrating with a 50% (!) discount from now until Sunday midnight (EST). This is our one and only sale for the year.

Confetti Toss! Happy our Tattly birthday to you!
