Draw This With Me

My grandfather was the most naturally cool person I have ever met. He was all skinny tallness with dark hair, soft-spoken and absolutely brilliant. He passed the bar exam without going to law school and worked as a lawyer for…

Hello Mr. Rocketlegs

Creative people are constantly creating. Whether in the planning or making stages, they are pretty much always focused on a creative endeavor. Why? Don’t know. But I do know that making things is fun and good for the soul and…

Real Actual Factual Dream House

What would I seriously love in a real next house that we own? I am an obsessively visual person, and always have been. My eyeballs are constantly taking in data and processing it inside my pea head, and that’s why…

A Tiny Painting or Two

Do you know what is fun? I do. It’s having 2 uninterrupted hours on a Thursday morning to paint with wax. I signed Bex up for 2 year old preschool for just this very reason. I wake up at 7:30,…

Liza Sherman I Love You

As I was innocently yet jauntily meandering through the streets of NY with Christian, I was keeping an eyeball open for some interesting places. Boom. This place certainly fit the bill. I get all crazy googly-eyed and gape-mouthed when I…

More Pretties

With my own eyes I saw some pretty pictures this past week, and since sharing is my middle name, here ya go: (click on each pic to transport yourself to their origins.) From Adventurous Design Quest– photographer Paul Massey’s house…

Yarn Bomb

Who doesn’t like a well-thought out, aesthetically pleasing graffiti? Well, I guess a lot of people don’t, but when it comes to yarn bombing, I think there’s little not to enjoy. Technically, it falls under the category of vandalism, but…

Kids’ Cool Coolness

I get weekly recommendations from Stumble Upon, and some of them are really really really cool, including The Cool Hunter. It actually kept my interest long enough to scroll (slowly, even!) through both pages of beautifully designed spaces for kids.…

Such Beauty

I read design blogs, because they are like t.v. shows for me- I’m able to stare at the magnificently styled shots, the sublime lighting, and zone out for a bit. Even though I freelance at it, I’m sort of like…
