Happy Holidays everyone! I am going out of town to LA for a wedding right after Christmas, and I will be back in 2008. Go enjoy some holiday cheer, and create those lasting memories with your loved ones. Thanks for reading. xoxo - Rachel
Jennifer from Made by Girl sent me an email about her fresh and friendly 100% recycled designer greeting cards. They look pretty bright and fun. I also recently enjoyed viewing a post on her blog about a fabulous Soho Loft. It is breathtaking.
My technologically savvy husband shared with me this new bit of technology that I haven't heard before. So . . . all you digital photographers out there, (using sd cards) you may want to take a look at this. Eye-Fi is a wireless card which allows you to upload all of your photos to your computer, and photo accounts (ie. flickr, shutterfly) without even taking your card out of your camera. Presto change-o the Jetsons would be proud. (Thanks Mac)
Siggi Eggertsson's work is simply remarkable. I wish his portrait book was still in stock, because I would have to snatch one up, his Christmas ornaments are so cool and abstract, and check out the fantastic Coke ads. (I think just the first one ran) Isn't his work stunning? Go see more of his brilliant portfolio. I think there is a definite reason why Print named him one of the brightest design stars under thirty in '06. I concur. (via Design Crush)
I just got an email about the Friends + Family sale at Banana. If you would like to get 30% off, and are on the nice not naughty list, email me and I will send you something shiny. (It ends on Friday by the way.) Thanks Phil.
This little calendar is pretty sweet. Find it here at Sunali Creations' etsy shop. Alyson, the girl behind the greatness of this calendar, and a recent music swap has a fabulous blog called unruly things, which has become one of my new daily stops.
I don't like the fact that I have a gazillon old clippings, inspirations, and ideas without source names such as this, But . . . I thought these ones were too great not to post today. (As always, if you know the source, let me know, so I can give proper credit)
My boss at work (aka little ricky) keeps playing clips from this duo over and over and laughs his head off harder and harder each time he hears them. If you haven't heard about Flight of the Conchords, well, here is your chance.
Have you seen T magazine? Well... Jessie from Zesty Perspective spread the word and now I am scouring all of the lovely imagery and films that the New York Times put together within their hot online style publication. Definitely worth a looksy.
Here is a more cutesy look at gingerbread houses, and if you aren't in the mood to make a house, but still want that tasty gingerbread flava, you could always try a gingerbread tree or tower like the last image.
The books by Laura Ljungkvist are quite fun, and it is great to see that she is coming out with a new one soon, called Follow the Line around the world. Looking for a fun and free way to entertain the kiddos? Check out her free downloads for a matching game, dot to dot and other activities.
I enjoy the idea of this holiday card tree by designer David Stark as seen here via Brilliant Asylum. Below is some of David's work from the Target Bullseye Inn Pop-Up Store in Bridgehampton, New York. Oh so glamorous!
