I love cards! I love making, sending and receiving cards—the whole shebang! So when I found these awesomely awkward cards by Emily McDowell, I had to share! I don’t know about you guys, but whenever I sign a card I tend to ramble on and on, and sometimes it gets long and maybe even a little bit awkward….so these are the perfect cards for all the ramblers out there! Each card retails for $4.50, and you can purchase these and Emily’s other fantastic cards from her Etsy store. But seriously…how awesome are these?
I would first like to apologize for my lack of posts these past of couple months—I got a new job, and things have been pretty crazy! But, I promise I’ll be posting more regularly. And I hope to have some personal projects to share with everyone in the coming months!
So now lets get back to the subject of this post! A few weeks ago I came across the Cyclemon website, and discovered their fabulous You Are What You Ride poster series, created by Thomas Pom and Orthonormai. If I had to pick my riding style, I would definitely classify myself as the “fake”….and yes, I am openly (yet, embarrassingly) admitting that I never learned how to ride a bike! So whenever someone says to me, “oh it’s just like riding a bike”, I give them a blank stare and an awkward smile…but maybe one day i’ll be able to relate to that statement.
Check out the awesome prints below, and get your very own favorite print in the Your Are What You Ride online shop. So what kind of a rider are you? Comment away!
Cheers to the infamous show that both began and ended its run with conversations about shirt buttons. So what show am I referring to (if you didn’t already guess from the title of this post)? The one and only Seinfeld! As a kid of the 90′s Seinfeld and Friends were staples of my generation. Although I was more of a Friends girl, I still watched my fair share of Seinfeld episodes, and can still remember all of the memorable lines uttered by the truly hilarious cast. Which is why, I was thrilled when I found The Seinfeld Project, created by designer and hand-letterer, Marlene Silveira. The aim of the project? To create a hand-lettered poster with one line from every episode (180 total) of Seinfeld. Check out my mini interview with Marlene and learn all about her awesome Seinfeld filled adventure.
Q:What inspired you to create this project?
A: I wanted to stay productive while I wasn’t at my 9-5 job or doing freelance work so I figured I would create a personal project. I had always loved Seinfeld since I was a kid, to this day I can re-watch an episode 20 times and find it funnier than the last time I watched it. So I figured I needed an excuse to watch all 180 episodes again so here it is.…
UK-based designer, Stephanie Baxter, created a hand-lettered series of prints, titled “We Go Together Like…“, based on a combination of items that we love to consume. Check out her lovely prints below, and purchase your very own copy of these and her other AWESOME creations from her Etsy Store.
What are some of your favorite combinations? I love vinegar and french fries, while some of my friends love Wendy’s frosty with french fries…weird…right?!?
p.s. Make sure to check out her entire portfolio…she’s done some really creative and truly inspiring work!
When I walk into a wine store, I am completely overwhelmed! There are so many different options—bottles from different years, vineyards and countries. So how do you choose a wine? Unless you come bearing recommendations from friends, packaging design seems like your best bet for selecting a fun bottle to take home and try!
So on your next trip to the wine shop, you might consider picking up a bottle of Small Talk Vineyards—a series of distinctive wines that expose the dramatic gap between what you say, and what you think. The fabulous hand-lettered front label is the “speech bubble”—expressing what we usually say during the progression od a dinner, and the back label is the “thought bubble” expressing what we really think. If nothing else, this bottle is a great conversation piece at any gathering!
Right now the bottles are only available in Canada (so to all my Canadian readers, hope you enjoy). Hopefully, they will make their way to the US soon, and I can get my hands on one!
Check out the various bottle designs below. Which one is your favorite? Sound off!
