shiny bic

I have to have one of these pens! Aren’t they awesome?! These Athas! pens are made in the same shape and style of regular Bic pens, except they are made in your choice of steel, gold, silver, or brass. Since they’re in the style of the regular Bic pen, you can change the ink really easily! I love them!

bicycle contrails

This gadget lets cyclists leave a little trail of color everywhere they go! They’re calling it a contrail, and it was designed by Studio Gelardi. The original idea, from their site, as phrased by Doobybrain: By using this device, bicyclists will have a clearer path on which to ride safely and out of the way of vehicular traffic. At the same time, as more bicyclists using the Contrail go over a line created by a cyclist before them, the line gets brighter allowing drivers to clearly see a marked bike path where there might be none. It’s sort of similar to what happens when a dirt path appears in a grassy field after lots of people have taken the same shortcut over a period of time.
It’s a really cool idea- I am hoping people take it up, if only for the pretty colors…

These beautiful drawings are by Hanna Müller, who has a really cute story on her blog about how she started drawing: When I grew up I did some serious attempts to write my feelings in a diary, it started off good until my brother ferret out where it was hidden. It didn’t matter how much I tried to hide it, he always found it and spread my most private thoughts to everyone who cared to listen. So I stopped writing my feelings down and started drawing what I felt instead. My pictures became my diary and still are. It feels nice to draw them away. So sweet…

Check out this super cute new video from Company of Thieves! It’s a take on some of the scenes from Rushmore which is fun, and the lead-singer Genevieve is wearing a Free People top for a lot of the video too! Enjoy!

Sucha good band! Im obsessed with watchin this video too...the way they did it is funny as hell and the songs amazing!

This is a great music video, on music (obviously) but also in style and concept. One thing that I particularly like about it is that seeing Rushmore is not necessary for enjoyment. So many times music videos play tribute to other videos or films but unless you've seen what they are referencing, the video means nothing. This on the other hand actually does operate on two levels.

I just spent way too long looking at every painting on Josh Keyes’ site, and after I post this I’ll probably go back to look some more! I can’t put my finger on what I like so much about his work, but I really really do! His acrylic paintings are strangely beautiful, and I love the subject matter and message. If you check out his paintings, try starting at the bottom! His older work is at the bottom and it’s cool to see the work develop.

I had the lucky chance to see some of his work in person at the David B. Smith gallery in Denver. I couldn't even believe how detailed it was. He has a few paintings that are more grungy/urban rather than nature focused, and in those he uses these little shocks of neon that I love.

carrot cake treats

Elsie Marley made these delicious looking carrot cake cookies using this recipe, which I am really excited to try! Apparently when Elsie made these cookies they got eaten right up, and no surprise – just looking at them is making my mouth water…

some clever slings

These slings are such a good idea! They’re not just funny, but useful for when you get to the point that you are tired of telling the story of your broken bone over and over and over…

pigeon feathers

I’m loving this amazing work by London-based artist Kate MccGwire! To create these pieces she used thousands of discarded pigeon feathers, and they seem to create so much movement! I especially love how they look flowing out of pipes! See more of Kate’s work here.

silkworms

Craftzine found a really interesting article about how silk is made over on True Up. It’s definitely worth checking out!

That is so cool! What a great idea for a school project! I wish I had gone to your elementary school :)

I had a pet silkworm as a 3rd grade project ha ha how random. But it was so cool and it was the first (and last) time I was brave enough to hold an insect. We kept them til they transformed to moths then I really don't remember what happened to them after that :)

Aaron at Color Schemer has created an awesome list of all the Crayola Crayon colors, with hex codes. For me the fun is reading all the different names! ColourLovers has the whole list right here, as well as a bunch of pictures like those shown above, and some random crayon facts. Fun!
