Happy Friday! Here’s a little inspiration to get crafty this weekend (I need it!). Meet my new artist crush – Julia Goodman. In the photos above, Goodman is creating a papyrus solely of beets. Read more about Julia here via In the Make (my new favorite site). I kinda want to just move to California right now, so I can take one of her papermaking workshops.
When I think of coal, I think of coal mines (Hunger Games!) or grilling. Mixing both age-old Asian practice & Scandinavian design, Sort of Coal changes the way I ever viewed coal. White coal naturally purifies the air, body, or water. For example, the first item (the water bottle & white coal) – by placing the coal in the water, it absorbs chlorine & releases minerals. A coal this size is reusable for up to a month! The 2nd item, the Chikutan Sticks, will absorb impurities in your cocktail & give it a fresher taste. Check out their other products like shampoo, soap & necklaces – I’m tempted to try it!
Kate Spade’s new arrivals for spring are fun & vibrant! I loved them so much, I have decided to try out tennis myself. My boss is a tennis player herself, so she is donating her first rackets to me & Tim! I’m so excited to get out, exercise, & try something new.
I love reading about what designers/entrepreneurs did in the past to get to where they are now. Matt Bernson used to work as a construction worker, but now he goes to work daily in his Tribeca studio creating hand crafted, high quality shoes. Not only are the shoes eco-friendly, they’re elegant and casual – perfect for any occasion. Shop here. *I love his construction inspired boot.
Know someone that is not so computer savvy and could use a little simplicity in their life? Set them up an internet buttons page, it’s free and it will make their life (and your life) a little bit easier.
