Sketchy Illustrations

Back in the day - when I used to commute from Staten Island - I would use my morning ferry ride as the perfect time to draw. I gravitated more towards the sleeping people, in an attempt to avoid awkward situations, and it became something I looked forward to every day. I recently scanned in a bunch of my sketches and am in the process of turning them all into digital illustrations. Here are two that I've completed so far. Hope you like!


Wine Case Lamp

Finally! Give someone the gift of wine and ambient lighting. Designed by spanish design studio Cicius, this wine case transforms into a lamp using the included instructions and cordage. It's also made from recycled cardboard and sustainable wood for an extra punch of green goodness.

Buy it here.



Polar Bear Love

I love these playful polar bear shots by Michael Poliza. It almost makes you want to forget how insanely dangerous they are - and jump in on the fun!


Crayon Rocks

Super-fun Crayon Rocks are made from non toxic soy/beeswax and are available in 16 colors. Perfect for kids or design nerds a like :)


Holiday Season

The holiday season is over - womp - but it was fun while it lasted! I had an amazing time with Mike, my family, and friends. I'm so happy to be surrounded by such wonderful people - and am looking forward to the New Year!

How was your holiday? Any good stories??



Now & Later

Merry Friday!


I am re-writing my never ending to-do list for today. Ugh. Oh and I'm ogling the Birdsong Gregory Holiday Card design:

Great use of non-traditional colors!


Oh you know - baking cookies, wrapping presents, making logos... the usual (?)

I have a TON of stuff still to do before we head to my parent's house for Christmas. So I will be running around town and all over the apartment to finish things up.

I hope you all have an amazing Christmas, if that's the holiday you celebrate, and if not - Happy Holidays and weekend to you all!


Dog Hats

Give your pup the gift of expression this holiday season with these amazing dog hats from Etsy shop Sweethoots. There are tons to choose from, and even if you don't have a pet - they're pretty amusing just to look through :) That last one just kills me!


A Very Merry Apt

Our first tree is officially up and decorated! Yes! I couldn't be happier with the way it turned out - the whole place feels (and smells) fantastic. I'm actually considering leaving it up for way longer than it should be :) Don't you just love the holidays!

(Thanks to Mike for taking the pictures and for making this holiday ultra-amazing, xo)


Refractive Monolith

Artist Lee Baker used 10,000 meters of vibrant yarn to create this piece, "Refractive Monolith". I imagine this would be pretty cool to see in person. Click on the source link below to see a video of how it was made as well as some more info on the piece.

Also, I don't know why, but it reminds me of this.


Rapping Paper

Rapping Paper is officially the coolest thing since Cheeseburger Gift Wrap.

I said a hip, hop...



Few Days Off...

I have a lot going on these days so I'm going to take the rest of the week off. I hope you all have a happy week and weekend!



Now & Later

Happy Friday!


I am in great mood :)

Also, this awesome Pin Pres shelving unit, intended for children, has just made its way onto my christmas list...

I could literally spend hours playing with this thing.


Sculpting! Partying! Decorating! - in that order.

I'm really looking forward to seeing some friends and jazzing up the apartment with Christmas decorations. Hope you all have an amazing, fun-filled weekend!



Cheeseburger Gift Wrap

This makes me way happier than it probably should :)

So fun!

Dokter and Misses

Loving this shelf and Kreep planter from Dokter and Misses.

2012 Constellation Calendar

I never buy calendars, yet constantly need them. I have a serious tendency to forget what day it is, among other issues of mine. Anyway, I wouldn't mind finally settling down with this screenprinted Constellation Calendar with it's navy blueness and starry goodness.




Artist and photographer Olsen Zander uses fabric to bring out the horizon lines beyond the surface of the trees in his his series Tree, Line. And, it's pretty amazing.
