For those who use an advent calendar during the holiday season, I sure thought this was a cute one! Brooke, author of the blog inchmark, made it out of felt for herself and family to use. I absolutely love that for each day there is a little ornament to hang on the buttons of the tree! It’s such a fabulous idea! And a fun craft project too!
It is my pleasure to bring you a guest post by one of our Graphic Designers, Kevin! (Also known as the host of DOG Talk!) Please enjoy!
Hi Everyone! My good friend Johnny Corndawg makes incredible airbrushed apparel that I wanted to share with you! Johnny does some amazing stuff with airbrush. Airbrush is a medium that’s usually overlooked for being cheap and tacky, but Johnny’s shirts are totally wild and original! Part artist and part musician, Johnny lives half the year in Nashville and half the year in the jungles of North Philadelphia.
While he’s still here with us in Philly, Johnny is having some holiday fun painting Pet Portrait T-Shirts! Personalized pet fan-art- think about it! It’s the perfect present. I’m having a portrait of my mom’s Irish Setter airbrushed on a sweatshirt. My mom’s going to freak out when she sees it! Johnny’s custom pet portrait shirts can be a little strange, but they’re totally exciting. (And pretty cheap!) Even if you don’t want an animal shirt, Johnny Corndawg has a great sense of humor and would probably airbrush whatever you wanted on any piece of clothing. Check out these shirts he already painted for other people!
Check out Johnny’s site to get your hands on one of these cool tees!
How cool are these knitted masks by 23 year old artist Stephan Golddrajch? They were on display at the Berlin Preview art fair, and spotted by a blogger on The Moment. Read the entry to hear their view on the “woolly territory between fashion and art.”
I also think these are so appealing because the sweater quality makes me want to wear them, even though that would probably look a little scary. Maybe on the slopes. Anybody else loving the cardboard box display?
Just a few shots from around the office today… Much hard work is being done!
This quick little video makes me so happy! It’s nice to think about plants growing and living, since winter is starting to bear down on us! I love watching the little roots grow…
I love these photos by Rune Guneriussen – I can’t stop looking at them! The phones look like they are watching for phone predators… And the first picture is so perfect for wintertime, the lamps look so cozy and cute in the dark of winter!
See more pictures here on Livejournal, and even more on Rune’s site!

This is actually part of an advertising campaign for HSBC Bank! Their ad company had an aerial photo of city skyscrapers attached to the bottom of this pool, in attempt to raise global warming awareness. I just love the idea! It makes me wonder what other pictures would look really cool at the bottom of a pool!
Find a tiny bit more info here.
Check out these awesome landscapes, made and photographed by artist Carl Warner! They are created entirely with food!
The castle is made of cheese, and the wagon wheels are mushrooms! I bet you can pick out the rest!
I love those rock-potatoes! And corn cornfields!
Mmmm…. Bread mountains.
Here is the artist at work on one of his creations!
You can see a bunch more of Carl‘s foodscapes right here! Special thanks to FP girl Lisa, who emailed us to make sure we saw these! Thank you so much Lisa! Great eye!
