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 Love: Zara Picken

Zara Picken is a Bristol-based illustrator creating the most charming illustrations. Her style is old school handmade starting with a drawing and then taking it into Photoshop. Here are a few of my favorites. Check out the rest!

I Love: Lumadessa

So I adore birds. I came across Lumadessa. Lumadessa is an art and design label started by Josh Brill. You can get these sweet little birds in his shop and the best part is 5% of the proceeds go to Animal and Environmental Charities.

I Want: MT Tapes (and I got them!)

So I posted before about these adorable Japanese masking tapes from MT. I searched high and low for a good deal. They’re hard to find and are pretty much all sold through people on Etsy. I found a sweet deal on a box of thirty from Washimatta on Etsy. I got my package the other day and had to share. They’re so cute!

I Want: MT Masking Tape

I am totally obsessed with this stuff. I just bought some of the stripped kind on Etsy from Nothing Elegant. It’s so cute though, I don’t want to use it. I have this problem with adorable supplies. As a kid I had a sticker collection that I still have most of today because I couldn’t bring myself to stick them on anything. I really wish it was available in the States. Sigh. I must get more!

I Love: Geninne

I have always loved birds. Geninne’s work makes me love them even more. I originally found her through her Etsy. You can also find her on flickr, and her illustration blog.
