just some pics from around the office :)
this year’s bonnaroo lineup is being announced today…starting at noon today, they began revealing one artist at a time every 5 minutes on their myspace page. pretty annoying actually…anyway it is going on right now if you want to check it out here. so far, among the performers they’ve announced are the avett brothers, weezer, phoenix, the xx, ok go, jay z, theivery corporation, jimmy cliff and the flaming lips performing “dark side of the moon” with stardeath and white dwarfs.
i know it’s not over yet but i’ll admit, with the exception of jimmy cliff (which is rad), i’m a little disappointed. maybe because i was at the second bonnaroo when the headliners were neil young, widespread panic and the dead. it seems like each year it gets a little more mainstream. what do you guys think?
on a more positive note, i love this photo shoot by dan martensen that was taken at bonnaroo ’08 (i was there that year, too)! as i mentioned yesterday, martensen shot our new february catalog, and our team was very inspired by this photo shoot – i can see why!
more sweet artwork for you to download! this one is the gateway for our we the free page online right now, and i love it! it reminds me of the beach, and therefore summer…sigh…click the image to go to our flickr page and download the large size!
the theme for the catalog is “raw,” heavily inspired by nature – flowers, feathers, shells and raw materials, as well as lace, crochet and fringe. the above beach shots were very inspirational, as well as the photographer dan martensen’s past shoots at the bonnaroo festival and with fashion muse erin wasson.
i think the end result is lovely!

how cute is this for a valentine’s day breakfast?!
heat up a pan with a little bit of oil. set your cooker to a low heat or you will burn the eggs. place your heart shaped cookie cutter in to the center of the pan, with the smooth side down or you might end up scratching the pan.
crack an egg and pour it in to the center of the cookie cutter. a bit of egg will probably slip under the cutter so hold it down to ensure that most of it doesn’t.
use a spatula to remove any excess egg from the outside of the cookie cutter. remove the cookie cutter and let the egg cook for a few more seconds before removing it with the spatula.
you can use this same method for heart-shaped pancakes too!
i am in awe of these sculptures…the timing is also pretty appropriate, seeing as we’re expecting a bit of snow here in the northeast this weekend…
they’re from the sapporo snow festival, an annual event in japan that attracts about two million people who come to see incredible snow statues and sculptures like these. this year’s snow festival actually starts today and lasts through thursday february 11.
these snowmen were made by festival-goers, who tied messages of good luck around their necks.
