Homescreen Homie lets you put a selfie in the most precious place, the home screen of your friend’s phone, in the form of an app icon. From there, they can tap your face to instantly text, call or view your Instagram profile. You can also create your own gallery of Homies on your phone’s home screen!
If my daughter had a phone she’d be all over this.
Beyond Prison is a creative collaboration between numerous filmmakers, photographers, writers, designers and developers from all over the world. The project was drawn up in the US and its stories – in the form of short documentary films, photography, animated infographics, and articles – explore innovative approaches to rehabilitation and offer a new vision of what prison could be: a place of transformation from the inside out.
Interesting visual approach to a to-do list: To Round is a task manager showing your tasks as bubbles in a funnel. Looks beautiful and seems playful. I am intrigued. Discovered via ProductHunt. (But man, my version of To Round would look like a giant ball pit!)
(I am using TeuxDeux daily and it keeps me sane. Make it your browser landing page and you will stay organized throughout the day!)
Full disclosure: I am not someone that asks for help easily, writing this post has me feeling all the feels:
On Friday my team and I launched a Kickstarter campaign to support and celebrate our 1,500 CreativeMornings volunteers around the world. Every month, they pour time and heart into each and every event, which are open to anyone, at no cost. They passionately and tirelessly fuel this engine of generosity.
Just last year alone, we hosted over 1,600 events, in over 50 countries. Did I say CreativeMornings events are free? As in ZERO DOLLARS? And come with free breakfast? Free coffee? And even hugs?
We often try to imagine how many lives CreativeMornings must have touched. How many people found new jobs? New friends? Spouses? Or simply a place where to feel safe and understood. My team and I believe in the power of meeting up, in the power of creating a safe, kind space to share and connect.
Have you ever been inspired by a CreativeMornings event? Or watched our talks online? Then please, consider donating to our Kickstarter which will help us put on our bi-annual Organizer Summit. It’s a two day chance for all volunteers around the world to get together and compare notes, learn from each other and make your local events better.
We put together some pretty neat rewards, have a look. If you have ever been touched by a CreativeMornings event, please consider giving back.
And, if your company might be interested in sponsoring our Summit, and in that case, be invited to participate and meet our hosts from around the world, please email us!

How lovely is this Eleplanter? It is a self-watering porcelain kitchen planter perfect for growing herbs by the windowsill. Its generous water reservoir will hold water for 2-weeks of continuous hydration, which seeps into the plant’s soil through tiny weep holes. Watering is done through the Eleplanter’s trunk, preventing soil-filled overflow on the kitchen counter. Well done, Scott Henderson!
