Peep making!

It’s almost time for Easter, which means it’s time to eat Peeps! Yum!
The Chicago Tribune has a neat slideshow of the Peeps factory that I enjoyed – you can check it out here. See a few of the shots below! (I found the cool swordfighting Peeps picture here.)

Peeps without sugar-coating look a little bit scary!

early emoticons?

I came across these on Made you Look. Neat, right? I can’t decide if I think they are legitimately from the 70′s or not. Perhaps! Either way, I like them, and that they’re “films.” A tiny drop more of information at Made You Look.

Haha I highly doubt it. Did emoticons even exist back then? But they're pretty great.

The author of Mission Mission spotted this little installation attached to the wall of the building across the street from her/his apartment. I love it – I’d like to imagine some little person actually does live in there! See more pictures here.

Oh man! I've actually seen this before! It was too cute! It also made me think about Basil- The Great Mouse Detective (Walt Disney).

I’m crazy about these images by Carlo Van De Roer, aren’t they fabulous!? I’d love to have a giant mural of one for a wall in my living room. The feeling of these pictures is like another world!

I just spent way too long looking at everything on Shiraz Fuman’s site and Flickr feed. Her stuff is so awesome – I love the style and how it’s a little bit surreal!

I am so inspired by this beautiful crochet blanket from the ladies of The Purl Bee. I love the idea to just make one giant Granny Square as a blanket. The colors are gorgeous too! But the best part is that they have a really good tutorial for making Granny Squares! Now I just need to graduate to making giant Granny Squares.

One of our former design team employees, Michelle, recently dug up our Art Director Doub’s glove project from many years ago, and posted it on her blog! You can see it above, it’s pretty fabulous – I couldn’t resist sharing it with you guys as well!
Here’s a little note from Doub about where the inspiration for this project came from:
Well what became fascinating for me when I started the glove project was how elaborately detailed each pair of gloves were. And with each glove it’s delicate little details really dictated each design. I had become obsessed with gloves and was scouring the city for them mainly for the strange need to cut one of the pair up into a silhouette. I still have such an appreciation for the amazing craftsmanship and design of gloves.
It really is a very inspiring project! And speaking of inspiration, our friend Michelle’s blog is called Inspiration Resource, and aptly so! You should definitely check it out if you feel so inclined…

These are so cute and interesting, did Doub sew up the little garments?

I am totally amazed by this piece by Lynette Andreasen! She found an antique silver platter and embroidered an outline of an old image of her father’s family onto it. When I first saw the top picture, I thought it was embroidered leather and that it was very cool – so you can imagine my reaction when I found it was a silver platter – even cooler! Check out Lynette’s pictures too; she has an interesting little artist’s statement there.

Motoi Yamamoto creates these amazing designs with loose salt, or salt baked into bricks for large structures. He started using salt as his only medium when his sister passed away from brain cancer twelve years ago, and he looks at his labyrinth-esque art as at once futile yet necessary to his healing. It’s also interesting to note that in Japanese culture salt is often considered a symbol of purity.
See a nice interview with Motoi here.

I've a few days I've this blog bookmarked as a favorite site. A little funny, because even kilak weeks ago about this forum I said before, but no blog you will not find among my esteemed pages. Testifying to the extraordinary discussion that blogs are always niewartosciowym Internet junk, on which there is no reliable knowledge, or objectivity. Im not talking now in regards to a specific address here, but all is discussing blogs in the form of handbooks, diaries, and information services there is always a lot of unreliable knowledge and unverified information, which translates into my long-standing aversion to these sites. However, its unwillingness to revise its humility, yesterday I searched the web resources in the search for specific knowledge. A bit of the case visited several blogs, because although subject matter often appears inside the network, but this subject rather superficially presented. Kidy found this blog, I was more than surprised. As it turns out the issue presented here is very extensive. No doubt that when it comes to content is the better service available today in the Polish network. Not only that even scientific, popular, and service breaks aren't able to match this portal. To date not succeeded, and also contact mcdougal of all the major publications. But I am hoping it succeeds it will email my email and failed to disappoint me, being a faithful reader for the future and will continually grow your blog. Because they sites are thin on a lawn in the Polish Internet. Why did I write this all? All through my character, I don't like making mistakes, however , if is to admit them. Such is the situation here. Of course, one swallow does not make (they say), but on such basis as this blog Im ready to admit that kind of web pages can be very valuable, kind and most importantly interesting.

L.E.D. Sheep!

There are no words for this video other than totally awesome! Samsung paid these guys to go to Wales and put some LED lights on sheep and herd them into patterns to make different displays! The sheep were probably kind of confused, but boy did they help make some cool visuals! Check it out, it is just amazing!

P.S. Props to the sheepdogs too!
