draw things

Draw me something's blog belongs to Patrik Hruby, he is a talented illustrator from Los Angeles.
He also illustrated some Aplhabets.

my new discovery

Next week I'll start the training for my Internship, yes I found a job and it will take all the day for 5 days a week, so I am pretty sure I will dedicate time to the blog only at night and during the weekend. I am trying to carry forward the research on cute and nice things to post, even if I am not forcing anything.
Next week we (of course me and Andrea) will guest my sister and my super best friend Elena as well, I will be definitely busy...

Ok let us change subject and talk about new interesting discovery to me:
Made it pretty -
Jolene Delisle, designer and art director, explores the intersection of fashion, design and culture.
Make it easy - A blog to share pictures, music, people ... I tagged it as Lifestyle.
I am a greedy girl - A catalog of inspiring finds, a web notebook.
Fensismensi - Ana Hriba's picture and life.

paper wood

Few days ago Bloesem has talked about the interesting website and lab: Drill Design. Irene said that she cannot understand a word, it's true because the website is totally in Japanese, but I have done some research on them:
. Creative unit Drill Design, along with furniture designers Full Swing, have, since 2007, been working on a prototype for a new kind of plywood.
. Paper wood is an ecologically sensitive material that is made from colorful recycled paper sandwiched by birch and lime wood.

et hop!

The first thing that hitted the nail on my head looking at Calourette jewellry is the Et hop! au régime! collection. They are really funny and odd maybe, but I am pretty sure that if I wear something like that every friday night all the girls would ask me wher I took it!

foot picture/12

One of my super favourite blog is Hello Tiger, we are also friend on Facebook and I think that Tiger Hellström (her name on fb) is very smart and nice.
I took that foot picture from her blog, lovely green.

I love paper cut and collages so when I have seen Jared Andrew Schorr's work on FromFifyFive I just thought that it was amazing! His website is very cool as well.
