There is nothing better than a strong desire to create paper from scratch. How much more hands on can you get? Bucket list status.

As a sucker for geometric designs, I had to feature this gorgeous set of bracelets from Adorn Milk.

Thanks to Pink Pot, this will definitely be on my September’s To Do list: creating and/or finding a wood background for Space Thyme photos.

My main takeaway from this article about infographic colors is that I should be focusing on using more shades, rather than giving into the temptation of using a multitude of colors.
Now off to go take a couple of friends on a tour of Chicago! Wish me luck.

I am no master of CSS, but I found this list of 12 little-known CSS facts to be rather interesting.
Also, was doing a bit of research myself on blog post timing. Came across this website with a lot of interesting facts (not sure how true it is, but nevertheless worth a peek).

It’s funny, as everything on the list is pretty obvious. But Camille Style’s “How to Start the Day on a Happy Note” is a great reminder of the things I should be doing each morning. I might even make a handlettered list when I get the chance.
My fav? Be Lavish with Affection. Definitely making this a priority, not just for the boyfriend and pet toucan, but also for my long-distance friends.

Just finished an amazing book: The Birth of the Pill. Relentlessly driven by the thought of revolutionizing sex and womanhood, four off-beat folks come together to pursue something previously unimaginable: a simple pill to prevent pregnancy.
This book features extremely important history about feminism and what it meant to be a woman in the world less than 100 years ago. Reading this book definitely opened my eyes and made me extremely thankful for those who fought for a woman’s right to sexual freedom and control of her own body. Every woman should read this book (and men, so they can better understand and respect us ladies).

Totally in love with Gingiber’s screenprinted items that are covered in animals. Definitely makes me want to make some tea towels.
