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

These are the (much pricier) inspiration:

I Love: Ikea Heights

I found this video while browsing around on Vimeo. There are four episodes so far. The group films in an Ikea while it’s open and they don’t get kicked out. The funniest part is the people walking around the store oblivious to what their doing. Even better are the people who see them and are just confused. Here’s the first episode. Enjoy!

I Love: T Magazine

T Magazine is a fashion magazine put out by The New York Times. I haven’t actually read the magazine, but they had an article online about the different covers they’ve had. There are some really cool ones. You can see them all here. These are a few of my favorites.
