Could this kitty be cuter? I think not. Look at all the kitties on flickr!

James Lipton = Brilliant

‘Before you text, give it a ponder’ is LG’s new campaign/PSA about the dangers of texting. Quite brilliant.

I Make: My Etsy Shop

Well, I’ve been posting on here for a while, but I haven’t really shown much of my work. I thought you might like to take a look at some of the stuff I sell in my Etsy shop.

For more, visit my Etsy shop, Abstract Octopus!

I Love: Present & Correct

Could anything possibly be more adorable that EVERYTHING at Present & Correct? I think not!

I Make: Random Cell Phone Pics

So I rarely use the camera on my cell phone. When I do it’s because I have forgotten my trusty little Canon, but a photo must be taken. Most often, I forget about these pictures and discover them months later. Here are my most recent discoveries.

Me napping on the hammock.

My sister lookin HOT during a family trip to Michigan.

This was sent to me from a friend and is possibly the most hilarious picture ever. It’s my friend’s brother holding a baby that is not so sure about this shady character.

A wildfire in Santa Fe. Apparently not all that wild because they just let it burn out. It was like that for a few days though.

My cat sleeping on my roommate’s bed where she is not supposed to sleep, but gets the most sunlight so how is she supposed to resist.

Rachel at Yats in Chicago. It was free that day because they ran out of rice. What Yat’s runs out of rice?

My dog, Snickers napping in the sun near the hammock.

I Love: Polanoid

I love Polaroids. Love love love love them. Now you can see the largest collection of Polaroids from around the world at Polanoid.




I Love: White Box

So I don’t exactly know what this is or what it’s for or anything…but it’s pretty! It starts a little slow, but just wait. I wish my room would do this while I was working.

I Love: 500 Colored Pencils

I came across SocialDesigner.com the other day. Apart from supporting good causes, it is awesome. The site allows its users to submit designs for competitions, vote on designs, and purchase winning designs on tees and totes. The proceeds go to various charities and groups. You can shop by design or by cause.

My favorite product on the site is a sort of side project called 500 Pencils. When you purchase the pencils, they don’t all come at once. You receive 25 pencils a month for 20 months. It’s like getting a gift once a month. The pencils have great names such as Arizona Sunset and Lobster Bisque.


They even sell storage containers to display your lovely collection. My favorite is the wall display. It almost creates a piece of artwork.

I Make: Magazine Boxes

I made this tutorial several years ago. Since then, I’ve seen my tutorial all over the internet, including Apartment Therapy.I’ve decided to share it again here.

I hoard magazines. I cannot bear to throw them away even if I know I will never take the time to look at them again. Here’s a way to use those magazines I feel too guilty to throw away and create a colorful recycled magazine box for your home.

These are the (much pricier) inspiration:
