The Deep

Thank you to Kelly Dorsey for sending me a link to this crazy beautiful video. I’m in awe…

weekend links

We had our first snow in Philly this week and while it lasted only a few days, it was so beautiful. I’ve been spending a lot of time indoors, working my tail off on projects that will finish up this month and next. I love that I can stay inside and bundle up with some reality TV and a cup of coffee and get some things off my plate. Here are some of things I’ve been inspired by this week and if you find yourself indoors, too, check them out! Before you know it, you’ll be making something, too.

Ryan Sims’ Practice Makes Pixel Perfect  a little slow, but the content is really really good. you’ll walk away with a new understanding of “practice”

Typographia’s Favorite Typefaces of 2011   all the fonts your heart desires (for 2011, that is)

Net Magazine’s Die A Designer: 10 steps to a long career   basics that any designer and creative should follow

Have a great weekend!

Love this color combination. And also wishing I could wear sandals right about now…

on the hunt: unique iphone cases

There’s nothing like a new case to make you feel new again and so I am on the hunt for some unique ones. Here are some I’ve found to freshen up for 2012.

1. roandco  //  2. jcrew  //  3. agent18 slimshield  // 4. belkin wood grain  //  5. jack spade  //  6. cabana stripe
7. corteo  //  8. tree rings  // 9. jack spade

Graphic Airport Runways

I love these Airport Runway posters from Jerome Daksiewicz of Nomo Design in Chicago. There’s just something about everyday things turned graphic like this that really interests me. You can purchase prints of 7 different airports in his store, here.

let’s eat: mini veggie pizzas

With the new year comes new food inspiration and I’ve been busy cooking, revamping my regular meals and realizing more and more how much I love my crock pot. I’m excited to start baking, too, and one thing on my list to try is a good pizza dough. I love these Vegetarian Mini Pizzas from Green Kitchen Stories. Their photography and recipes are just too good to be true! I’m betting $100 right now I burn the crust the first time around… but that’s what trial and error is for, right?

3ply Studio

You might remember my sister, Kelly, from her wedding that I posted last year, but have I told you yet how talented she is? An Interior Designer by day, Kelly has also created these delicately detailed threaded works and opened her own studio, 3ply. The overlapping strings are placed strategically, but intuitively, making each individual piece unique. I have fallen in love with her Ohio print and of course, the S!

You can purchase or order your own custom design (like your state, full name or a set of initials!) in her Etsy shop, 3ply. I couldn’t be more proud! :)

Such a beautiful sentiment to inspire the weekend and new year.

blog to love: Miss Moss

I’ve been following Miss Moss for 2+ years now, and every time I come back to her blog, I leave with a sophisticated air of inspiration. Her taste level is top notch, with great posts in fashion, design, photography and living. There are few blogs I check daily, and I can honestly thank Miss Moss for bringing me an elevated style every day.
