Lovely: Minimal Wrist Bangles, hand-made in Brooklyn.
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. –> !!!
“Who you are is defined by the values you are willing to struggle for. People who enjoy the struggles of a gym are the ones who get in good shape. People who enjoy long workweeks and the politics of the corporate ladder are the ones who move up it. People who enjoy the stresses and uncertainty of the starving artist lifestyle are ultimately the ones who live it and make it.”

A few weeks ago I asked the following question:
Never felt more grown-up than now in 2015. Have I peaked? What is the most grown-up experience one can have?
— Tina Roth Eisenberg (@swissmiss) December 20, 2015
“When the going gets rough in any creative or entrepreneurial project, what we require isn’t reason or rationality, it’s sheer tenacity—commitment to our abilities, commitment to our process, commitment to finishing even in the face of the inevitable setbacks. This is what separates children from the adults, and the Peter Pans from the Pros.
If being grown up means being committed—to a business, a project, a person—then it’s impossible to peak. And the deeper the commitment, the deeper the meaning that can emerge.”

In 2014, my friend Maggie Doyne saved a little baby boy’s life and allowed the world to cheer her on and follow the heartwarming rescue story along. Maggie named him Ravi and became his legal guardian. And then today, she shared this Instagram update. Ravi passed a day ago in a tragic accident. With a heavy heart I put together a fundraising campaign to celebrate Ravi’s life.
Following Maggie’s Instagram and Facebook updates, as she was fighting for Ravi’s life showed me a new side of Social Media: The world rallied and poured their hearts into Maggie’s mission to save this little fragile boy. The love shining through the comments was incredibly powerful.
Now, let’s put our hearts together one more time and give Maggie strength. If you can, please consider supporting the Fundraiser I set up in Celebration of Ravi’s Life. All money raised will go to his brothers and sisters.
(In case you’re wondering, I got the approval of Maggie’s BlinkNow Team to run this Fundraiser)
What an exciting last day of 2015 for team Tattly! Our Tattly Parlor is featured in The New York Times! Here’s the article. (Not to brag but we made the Style’s section twice in 6 months! Here’s the article from just a few months back.)
Team Tattly killed it in 2015: We moved offices, were part of the Easter Egg Roll at the White House, launched collaborations with Naughty Dog (of Sony) and Sesame Street, we were part of Art Basel, we brought old Masters back to life at Christie’s and opened a Tattoo Parlor. And we paid over $750,000 in royalties to our artists.
Time to celebrate! 2016 here we come!
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!
Italian designer Paolo Cappello created this modern music cabinet called ‘Caruso‘. Reminds me of the old TVs from back in the days…

“The cosmos is all that is, or ever was, or ever will be. We long to return, and we can, […] because the cosmos is within us. We’re made of stardust. We are a way for the cosmos to know itself.” What will you leave behind?”
