The Universe Salutes You, designed by James Victore. Made me laugh.
I’ve had the pleasure to meet Brad Ludden a few weeks back at the wonderful Do Lectures in California. His Do Lectures talk (it’s not up yet) has left a big impression on me. That’s why I am so *incredibly* excited Brad will be our speaker at tomorrow’s CreativeMorning/NewYork. There are a few seats left, if you’re in NYC, you should consider attending. His story is powerful.
Sign up. Or if they are all gone, sign up for the wait list. There’s a chance you still get it.

“Max gets up when he likes and does what he loves. He avoids most of the things that most of us numerically successful people complain about all the time: racing from one unreasonable deadline to the next, sitting in unproductive meetings and watching simple things made complicated by committees.”

I am so honored to be featured on Warby Parker’s fabulous blog. A big thank you to Liz Furze.
I just got a personal hand-delivery of one of the first OTO Cardboard Ice Cream Trucks by no other than the inventor, Måns Swanberg, himself. (I wrote about the Kickstarter back in March.) If you’re a parent of a little one, you might want to bookmark this one. You can even create a custom plate in your kids name. Totally adorable. My kids will be giddy when they get this for the holidays. A total winner!
UPDATE: Måns just emailed me with a discount code! Use SWISSMISS at checkout and get 10% off.
I just got my hands on the new Yellow Owl’s Little Prints book. Christine Schmidt, author of the bestselling Print Workshop and the creative force behind the acclaimed Yellow Owl Workshop line of artisan stationery and home accessories, shares her inspired ideas for making easy, yet entirely unique items for kids. It’s full of beautifully illustrated tutorials on using stamps, stenciling, and other hand-printing techniques. Ella (7) will be so excited when she sees this tonight! I see some extra crafty weekends in my future.
Today is the Day where I can finally announce our newest Tattly project: Tattly Cards: One Real Card, One Fake Tattoo. Our new stationery line is letterpress printed and includes a single matching Tattly Temporary Tattoo! A happy greeting and fun gift wrapped into one!
I am excited. YAY!
Oliver Jeffers recently launched an updated version of his wonderful World Map. Oliver drew the original map with pencil on paper and reproduced it on beautiful double-weight paper with a self healing natural cork backing for you to easily push pins into. Each print is signed by Oliver, embossed with an exclusive seal and mailed in a tube to ensure it arrives in the very best condition. Cool, right?
I noticed a lady on our office floor today with one of these stunning bags. It’s a Flea Bag. Thanks to Google I now know that Fleabags are the brainchild of Brooklyn based Shira Entis and Alex Bell. All of their bags are made with organic and vintage materials, vegetable-tanned and re-purposed leathers, and sourced in the USA. Consider me a fan!
