light lane

Isn’t this such a smart idea? I love it! I think the Free People girl needs one of these Light Lanes to keep safe on her bike! This would help so so much when there is no bike lane! What do you guys think?

These awesome photos are by New York City photographer Sam Bassett. He seems to do more portraits than anything else, but as you can see, they are really unusual and interesting portraits! I have been wandering around his site for a chunk of this afternoon, and if you liked these pictures at all, you will definitely enjoy looking around it yourself!

…and you were interested, I thought I would post these pictures of First Lady Obama in the ensemble she chose for the inauguration yesterday. There was much discussion about who would be the lucky designer of the outfit she would wear, and the lucky designer ended up being Isabel Toledo!
I like the material she used, and the color too! The body and shape are a little old fashioned for me, but I do think she looked very appropriately dressed for the occasion! And the coat was to die for!
The girls were wearing J. Crew.
So what did you guys think?
The first picture is a Getty Image, the other two are from AP.

What was she thinking!?!

Michelle is wearing matching green gloves as well. She's so beautiful. I can't wait for 4 years of Michelle Obama fashion! Also the youngest daughter was so cute when she hopped up on the platform when Obama was getting ready to be signed in!

Don’t you love these pictures? I think they are so gorgeous! They are the work of L Filipe dos Santos of Corcoise, and if not for Penguin & Fish I would never have found him! If you are into them too, be sure to check out his blog and his Flickr photostream- there are a lot more beautiful pieces to be found there!

We had lots of requests for a Valentine Swap, so here it is! Sign up, I’ll match you with a partner, you make your partner a Valentine gift, they make you one, and you both have a happy Valentine’s Day.
Sign up here.
Sign up is open for one week only, so spread the news to fellow crafty friends so we can get as many people involved in the week. Get your creative juices flowing and I’ll send you your partner’s info next week, and of course the craft will be “due” on (around) February 14th.
Here are some past Vday swap flickr groups for some ideas. Here and here.

My son and I just made some great cards with his photo and candy. I love DIY projects that mean more because you make them yourself. http://jenparkerphotography.wordpress.com/2011/02/03/i-heart-valentines-day-still/

Today the United States inaugurates it’s first African-American president! Everyone here at the home office will be able watch on a big projector in Building 543. It’s very exciting!
The little video above is of an amazing model at Legoland in California. It’s an all lego miniature of the inauguration! For being a miniature, it’s pretty large, and real impressive! It even has a mini presidential motorcade!

These humorous and dark silhouettes are from Silhouette Masterpiece Theater, by Wilhelm Steahle. I love how he uses old paintings as the backgrounds! If this kind of stuff tickles your fancy, check out more here!

I am just falling in love with Carbon Couture, especially with her crafty ways of creating fashion accessories! Shown above are some cool tassel earrings from the Marc Jacobs Spring 2009 collection, and below are the earrings she made to look just like them! I love it! See here on her blog to create your own with her easy instructions!
Also, a while ago, she made a how-to for this Dries Van Noten bracelet that is really great if you’re in the mood!

Yay Carbon Couture!

an odd couple

Our office twins today are kind of an odd couple…

We had a little trouble getting Fritz to pose at first…

He kept looking longingly at Mom.

Ta da! Nicole and Fritz show off their matching coats, with many kisses in the process. Fritz is so sweet!
We had another set of dog/human twins a couple of months ago.

I agree....Fritz is way too skinny, he needs to gain some weight ;)
