A Job To Love

I consider helping my kids understand themselves, so they will head into the direction of a career that will fulfill them, the biggest task of my life. Thanks to the newest book by School of Life I now have back up help: A Job To Love is designed to help us better understand ourselves and locate a job that is right for us.

At this point I might as well just give The School of Life my credit card info and have them send me everything they put out. Absolutely love what they do!

Jon Burgerman

Watch Jon Burgerman’s talk and agree with me that he is a super talented illustrator with a lovely sense of humor. Lucky me, I get to bump into him in the hallways, as both of our workspaces are part of The Invisible Dog in Brooklyn. Also, his Tattly designs are my kids’ favorites!

Opportunity triage

“… In emergency rooms, they put people into three groups: Gonna die no matter what, going to be okay if we help them eventually, and needs help right this moment. By prioritizing where to focus, they serve the patients who can benefit the most.

What happens if instead of ignoring opportunity, you triage it?”

A Creative Wall Thanks to Sugru

Sugru is one of the most magical materials I have ever come across. Think of it as Play-doh and Superglue having a baby. And I love how they keep sharing ideas on how to use it in your home. It’s my go-to way to fix my iPhone cables.

Also, I highly recommend the Sugru founder’s 99u talk, if you haven’t seen it!

Watercolor Temporary Tattoos

A few weeks ago Tattly launched Helen Dealtry’s Watercolor Flower Tattoos and I can’t get enough of them. I almost wish they weren’t temporary.
