our creative director doub sent us this pic last night…she’s in l.a. with our image team working on the next catalog, but met up with one of our vendors during her travels. she snapped him doing some metallic heat-sealing…

want to know more about heat-sealing? we just might have a little how-to for you in the next week or so… :)

duct (tape) work

say hello to mark khaisman, a philadephia-based artist who hails from kiev, ukraine. his medium of choice is tape.

how he gets his inspiration: “i go mostly by motivation. i conceive an idea and live with it, and if in a while it still feels right to me, i work on it.”

this is one of the coolest and most clever things i’ve ever seen…
david horwitz took pictures of all the pictures in his grandma’s house and put them in a pdf for you to download as a keepsake for yourself.

everyone should do this to the building they’re working/living in today,
but don’t tell anyone we told you to… :)

I lived in Italy for half a year and I'd love to go back to Florence and paint all over the buildings alongside the train tracks that lead out of the Santa Maria Novella train station. This has actually inspired me!

sugar…oh, honey honey

from our marketing manager, kathryn… :)
my brother and his partner, who live one of my many dream lives, spend 3 months out of the year here in philadelphia with family and the rest of the year in their home in hawaii. they, among other things, are local beekeepers. before they left this year, they harvested the hives and left me with a jar of local, organic honey. you can see the difference between the smaller jar of honey that was harvested here, and the darker honey from hawaii. apparently, when done organically, the color depends on the flowers the bees choose to collect pollen. check out their website to learn more about organic, biodynamic honey. i’d like to learn how to keep bees eventually when I have some space, but for now i’ll enjoy these gifts from them. wanted to give them some love for the cool things they are doing. xo.

a few interesting notes about honey and beekeeping…
1. it is said that eating local honey can help prevent and tame outside allergies.
2. there are said to be 212,000 beekeepers in the US, and about 95% of them are hobbyists.
3. the white house vegetable garden is home to a hive.
