unexpected office video

this video is hilarious. if only all offices were this much fun!

stuff i like

i forgot where i came across these terrariums but i instantly fell in love.
i had to do a search to find it again so i could share it with you!

this gold one especially just kills me. awesome design and it always bring out a little giggle in me. it is just so silly yet if i had the means i would buy one in a second!

also a little silly but so whimsical and sweet is this bookshelf that i found on the same site.

wild cupcakes

i know everyone has posted about this kid already but for the few who have still not seen it... tada! SO DANG CUTE!! the perfect little max.

also found these cupcakes. if i had these i don't think i could bear to eat them!


Wild Things

T-5 days until Where the Wild Things Are movie comes out and I cannot wait!

The Morgan Library Museum currently has an exhibit up with Maurice Sendak's original drawings and they are so amazing to see. He makes little notes to himself as he is writing out ideas so it is cool to see how the final product came to be and what the alternate versions were like (example a different idea for the cover).

I also stumbled across this website via twig & thistle where a variety of artists create works inspired by Sendak. there are so many great ones but these are two of my favorites.

all these images are getting me pumped even more for the movie!


diaper cake #2

for our dear friend jessica we got back together to put combine our creative forces :)

since jessica is expecting a baby boy we thought this cake topper would make a good friend for him and keep him company while growing up.

we love the polka dot ribbon and festive feel of this cake!



i've got to say that i am a huge fan of dallas clayton.

his first and only book an awesome book, which he produced and sold on his own, was a huge success and now he is touring the country reading to kids and giving away a book for every book sold.
the first time i read it online i had to go back and read it again..and then again... and then i had to purchase one for my niece when really i should have purchased one for myself too.

in my opinion it is up there with the lorax, the hungry caterpillar, the little prince, and where the wild things are.. some of my all time favorites!

i love the page "and not a million quiet dreams a million dreams that roar"
what a good reminder :)

please go read and dream a roaring dream!
