A Merry Mishap

My home fantasyland.  Check out A Merry Mishap for DIY and interior design deliciousness. Another great discovery via Instagram.

Plastic animals

It’s quite amazing how much fun one can have with plastic animals. And if you aren’t very crafty, then you buy the hip version right here.

“The most important thing a creative person can learn professionally is where to draw the red line that separates what you are willing to do, and what you are not.”

Thank you, Steve.

1955 – 2011

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” - Stanford Commencement Address, 2005

“The work you do while you procrastinate is probably the work you should be doing for the rest of your life.”

- Jessica Hische

The.Hand.Written.Letter.Project

I’m fascinated with what people’s handwriting looks like, so this project is extra-neat.

Creative Block

For when you’re out of ideas. Reminders for the creative self.

V is for Val

A cheese-eating, bike-riding Canadian, now living in Amsterdam. Loves great design but creeped out by ballpoint pens. Alternate dream jobs include animals and cooking, but not cooking animals. Personal mantra gifted from an expert on the subject: Fortune favours the brave.

A is for Ali

Design hybrid by day. After hours she shoots film with toy cameras, sew clothes from books with Japanese instructions that she barely understands and hangs out with her husband, two beautiful girls and three crazy dogs. Personal mantra is "Don't worry, everything is going to be amazing". And for the most, it is.
