One Foot At A Time

Really digging the message on these socks. I already own this version.

Cutting Mat Scarf in Black

Last November I wrote about the witty and beautiful Cutting Mat Scarf. It originally got launched in the cutting mat green, but now they issued a bunch of new colors. I just got my hands on a black version and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!

Invisible Jumpers

Photographs of jumpers blending into their surroundings for an inventive 1,000-hour knitting project. Wow!

Octopus Dreaming

Watch the brilliant color changes of a sleeping octopus.

(Thanks sis!)

Pickle Plant

I am completely in love with this somewhat silly looking Pickle Plant. I bought one a few weeks ago and it’s thriving. I am delighted. Also, I had no idea you can buy plants on Etsy!

CreativeMornings Job Board

This week I interviewed two *delightful* humans for a designer position at Tattly that found the job listing through the CreativeMornings job board. The thought that my team and I built a job board that attracts talented and big hearted humans makes my heart explode.

The job board is global and you can filter by all commitment levels, meaning, full time, part time, contract, freelance and even internships. You can post unlimited jobs with an affordable membership to the CreativeGuild, the global directory of companies, professionals and jobs, run by CreativeMornings.

A Candle for F***ing Meetings

This candle made me laugh out loud.

You Are Beautiful Yard Sign

This yard sign makes me wish I had a yard.

Reasons To Be Cheerful

David Byrne started a magazine called Reasons To Be Cheerful in which he and his team tell stories that reveal that there are, in fact, a surprising number of reasons to feel cheerful. Many of these reasons come in the form of smart, proven, replicable solutions to the world’s most pressing problems. Reasons to be Cheerful is here to tell you about some of them. Through sharp reporting, their stories balance a sense of healthy optimism with journalistic rigor, and find cause for hope. It is part magazine, part therapy session, part blueprint for a better world.

I love EVERYTHING about this.

I Thought I Had A Lot of Plants…

I thought I had a lot of plants until I saw this house tour of Summer Rayne Oakes. I thoroughly enjoy what she shares on Instagram and I just ordered her book How To Make A Plant Love You. Also, she taught me how to fight Fungus Gnats. An overall lovely human. Also, I think her parents did an incredible job naming her. So much respect.

Butter for President

This T-Shirt made laugh. (Also, I own a framed oil-painting of a stick of butter. Seriously.)

Umbrella Hat

How are Umbrella Hats a thing? Is it weird that I want one? Who am I? Haaaaalp!

(It gets even weirder. Check this one out!)

Custom-Made Felt Cat Hats

Japanese couple Ryo and Hiromo Yamazaki create custom-made hats for their three cats out of the animals’ own shedded fur. I find this quite amusing.

DIY Optical Illusion

This is going to be a fun thing to try with my kids: How to Draw a 3D Optical Illusion of Your Hand!

Snorkeling Mask


I am currently in Switzerland with my kids and keep seeing these snorkeling masks everywhere. What an intriguing design! Are they fun to use? Comfortable? Anyone tried one of these?

Wish-listed!

NEW: Embroidery Tattoos by Tattly

Tattly launched Embroidery Tattoos by Tessa Perlow yesterday. These are the coolest! I don’t know what to do with my excitement over these! Gah!

In case you’re not familiar with Tattly: It’s a high-end temporary tattoo company I started 8 years ago. The designs last 2-5 days and are printed with vegetable based ink, here in the USA. We license art from professional artists and they get a generous cut of every single sale.

Walkman’s 40th Anniversary

I remember how the buttons felt on this Walkman. It was my most priced possession. And my heart broke when someone broke into our car and stole it. Happy 40th Walkman Anniversary, SONY!

Tiny Tattly Tins

Tattly just launched Tiny Tattly Tins! (Say that 10 times really fast!) They make me so happy! These tins are so teeny-weeny-tini you can take them anywhere! Plus they come with a wee sponge for easy application! Cuuuuute!

Psst.. Tattly is currently running their totally bonanza-50%-birthday-sale.

A Love Poem About Prime Numbers

Last week I had the pleasure to see Poet Harry Baker perform at The Do Lectures.

Hand-made concrete gravestone by Mr. Bingo, reminding us not to forget to have fun.

Crowns For The People

I know where I’ll turn next time I need a gift for a friend. Crowns For The People offers fabric crowns with all of the messaging you could hope for. They even offer a crown stand for meaningful display of your personal crown. Made me smile.
