Have you seen these key tags from Linkwithlove? I have some from the first batch that SOLD OUT, but more are available now. At only $3 for a set of two, they'll sell out fast again, so don't wait too long to get yours: Linkwithlove Key Tags.
Ever since Linkwithlove started spreading the word about respectful linking on the web, I've been very aware of the liberties that people are taking with other's art, design and ideas. I've caught myself taking those liberties but thankfully, as Maya Angelou has said, "when you know better, do better". The keytag has been a small but ever-present reminder to do better.
Oooohh...summer is just around the corner, I can feel it. At the start of each summer, we sit down as a family and write out our summer fun list. We brainstorm on the things that we want to do, from riding our bikes to get ice cream to the annual trip to Tinkertown for amusement park rides.
My kids are old enough that they like to write their own lists, so I created this free printable download to make it more fun.
And since I write this stationery blog, I'm sharing it with you in two formats. The free printable is available in PDF format, ready to print and fill-in.
I'm also posting the Word document so that you can go into the free printable and type your lists. The document is set-up as a two-column table so you can pack in as many fun activities as you can think of!
If you like this free printable, please leave a comment below to let me know. Enjoy!
For almost five months, one of the busiest intersections in New York City has been transformed — by the unlikely medium of 800 used paper coffee cups hung from fishing line — into an enchanted cleft in the canyons, a place of visual delight and surprising tranquillity.
Gweneth didn't drink all 800 cups of coffee herself; the community contributed to her supply and were invited to drop in and draw along with her during the exhibit. Oh, did I forget to mention that part? Gweneth sat in the display window, five days a week, for the entire five months of the exhibit, drawing and painting these little works of art.
The exhibit is over now, but you can see Gweneth's creations on her regularly-updated blog called Gweneth's Full Brew. There, you can read the story of how it all began, when Gweneth was called for jury duty and the only surface available for doodling was the paper cups her coffee was served in.
As Gweneth said in David Dunlap's article:
“Bach had fugues, Shakespeare had sonnets. I have used coffee cups.”
Over at my company, we like to post photos of our seed paper and envelopes in bloom. It's fun to see the paper sprout and grow into some very large plants, like these tomatoes growing in the front office:
