For those new to the world of Github, this is a helpful introduction article.

I did not think about how the Rule-of-Thirds in photography applied to creating print design until this post. Probably really obvious, but I always associated the rule with photography.
++ Positivity ++
Wow did I really need to see a post like this. Zenhabits’ author makes an excellent point that all our negative feelings stem from a place of uncertainty. Seriously. Just think about it. Even simple awareness of uncertainty can help soothe the fears, which makes this such a fantastic post to reflect upon.
++ Fashion ++
Diggin’ the gem-stone, gold jewelry in Powers Handcrafted Jewelry. Particularly in love with the semicircle shapes. Totally treating myself to a ring post-getting all my edits done for this week.
I hope you had a fabulous weekend and are looking forward to a new Monday!
++ Art ++
I’ve never heard of the wooden aquarelle coloring technique until now. Design Milk did a recent feature on Meike Harde’s wooden aquarelle pieces, which is absolutely stunning. Would love to have one of these mesmerizing, colorful pieces for my home.
++ Typography ++
A dating website for type? Who knew. Check out this super fun game to learn a bit more about type.

My newest diet plan: eating a crapton of veggies. Brought to you by Zenhabits. I died laughing while reading this article.

Last week, I was designing a small infographic for my company and read a great article that infographics should have minimal colors, but multiple shades. Here is a great article for creating shades in Illustrator.
Let me know if you find any of these interesting or useful!
++ Blog/Coding ++
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).
++ Motivation ++
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.
++ Read ++
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).
++ Print ++
Totally in love with Gingiber’s screenprinted items that are covered in animals. Definitely makes me want to make some tea towels.
