artist crush // julia goodman

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.

Happy Friday + Super Moon.

It’s finally here! I swear it’s felt like Friday at least two times already this week.  Anyways, Beach House tickets go on sale today, so it will be a happy one if I can score some tickets 🙂

This weekend, I’ll be getting back into letterpressing, baking a birthday cake/cookies & hopefully catching up on some sleep (I’d love to curl up in a little homemade tent like this)!

PS Tonight at midnight is the Super Moon!

sort of coal

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!
