Just Plain Cool

Muppet Madness

In further proof that Muppets are pretty much forever cool, here is a most awesome video of them singing Bohemian Rhapsody (found this via Geekologie). I already tweeted this, but it bears repeating because Queen plus Muppets cannot be denied….

HOPE IS IN THE CARDS

Just blogging here to advertise my participation in the Week of Hope with Hope Is In the Cards. From September 1st to the 7th, my partner- Cardstore- will allow anyone to personalize and send out a free card from the…

HELLO TWIG & FIG!

(Photo above poached from Design*Sponge, thank you! If I had my own photo, I’d use it!) Was perusing through Design*Sponge’s great coverage of some of the artists at the National Stationery Show in New York when I spotted this card…

LITTLE LOG PILLOWS

Can I just say that I would really like a set of these little log pillows? The pattern/kit to make them is sold by Home Ec. (awesome shop, by the way), and I think I could actually be bothered to…

PROJECT TIME

I’m still pretty swamped right now, so I don’t have a lot of time for fun projects. But if I did, you’d better believe I’d try out one of these cool paper recycling projects from the Recycling links on Patricia…

ICE CUBES FOR IMBECILES, ALSO ME

Came by this article about the Quicksnap on Gizmag (photo credit to them, obviously) via The Kitchn. This isn’t exactly new news but it seems one of the finalists in a design competition sponsored by Toyota IQ came up with…

DON’T GET DROOL ON MY ARTWORK

Grab yourself some pillowcases with my koi swimming around on them.  They would make a really nice accent piece for a modern, airy bedroom. I have to say, I ordered these myself (for posterity, of course) and they are a…

T & A (Tea & Appreciation)

Is this not the most mo-fab teapot/tea press you’ve ever seen? (Mo-fab=modern-fabulous, it’s a new word I’m coining… right now)(patent pending). I received this as a Valentine’s Day gift from the lovely Nik, and I must say it’s my latest…

Pop Stars

We had a small birthday soirée last night. Dinner first at the delicious Be One on Portage Ave, then scooting back to my place for a little snacking, chatting, and Rock Band-ing (Is that a verb yet? It should be.). So…
