I really have to hand it to Old Navy. Honestly, I feel like I’ve been seeing some generally cute stuff there for the past few years, but in the past few months they have really stepped up their game. Not only have the clothes and accessories gotten better, but I think their ad campaigns and […]

When I saw The Poster List on How About Orange, I had to check it out. They’ve got super cool posters at unbelievable prices. If you’re not in the market for posters, they also sell 6-pack postcard versions of everything. Just a few of my favorites…

It happens to the best of us. Whether you are a musician, an actor, a poet, a sculptor, a painter or filmmaker, chances are, at one time or another you’ll find yourself in a creative slump. CraftStylish contributer Jeffrey Rudell has a great post about how he recently found himself in a slump and how […]

The fact that the major printer companies have their own websites with paper focused craft projects isn’t really a new story, however it was news to me (via this post at How About Orange) that some of the projects were for grown ups! After perusing the Canon Creative Park, I headed over to the the […]



Via SuperNaturale. From Compai Clothing- directions for making this awesome t-shirt. It involves machine-sewing, but with a little patience (ok, maybe A LOT of patience!), you could probably do this by hand as well.

Jay Hilgert is an Oklahoma City based designer and blogger who does an awesome thing. I’ve never met him and I can’t exactly remember how I stumbled across his blog, bittbox, but I’m so glad I did. Along with posting workflow tips to improve productivity and helpful graphic design hints and resources, he shares free […]

This dinnerware has been widely featured on blogs and in the press (I first saw them on Springwise), but it’s just too cool not to talk about. VerTerra– the name comes from the Latin phrase Veritas Terra or “true to the earth”- is made from collected fallen leaves which are then steamed, heated and pressed […]

If he is, he never shows it. And I think it might be impossible to be unhappy in any room he designs. His sometimes exuberant use of color might not be your taste (though I happen to love it!) but you have to admit that these rooms are HAPPY: Happy and chic and sophisticated. Here […]

Oh Otto!


I am a huge fan of Babbo in New York City. Opened by Mario Batali and Joseph Bastianich in 1998, this award-winning restaurant just off of Washington Square has unbelievable food and impeccable service. Unfortunately, as much as I love Babbo, it’s on the expensive side so it’s a once-a-year (maybe twice!) event. This weekend […]
