:: You're the Inspiration ::

Yes, like the Chicago song!

Every year I make this resolution to be an inspiration and to be inspired. For my last post of 2008, I want to share with you a website that has inspired me to become a better designer and take pride in my work.

The Touch Agency inspires me. I love how the work fills the whole page. It just shows that he does take pride in his work and isn't afraid to show it. There's even a clock on the page that tells real time!

Happy New Year to all of my friends and may you prosper in 2009!

:: Charmingwall ::

A friend of mine stumbled upon Charmingwall and I have to say, I am in total awe. Charmingwall is a New York gallery specializing in a curated selection of open-edition fine art prints. The artists they represent come from diverse backgrounds, from traditional fine arts to comic book culture, but what they have in common is a gift for creating richly imaginative images. (from charmingwall)

The animation makes it fun to navigate and it is definitely charming! Check it out here.

What I Want Right Now...

The Luna Bag in Leather - Washed Black.  I saw it on a gal at the UNIQUE show this weekend.  I went up to her and asked her where she got it and she swears by it.  It's super cute and super chic!  I want one now.  Too bad I bought this pouch right before I saw her.  It's super cute also. I could have 2 of them right?

I love the challenge of find gifts for people.  Like I said before... I HAVE NO TIME! A co-worker introduced me to and I was intrigued.  You can do a search by personality and voila!  There's a list of gifts for you to choose from and you can buy them online.  No crowded malls.  No pressure of finding the perfect gift.  Click here to launch the gift finder.  I'm categorized as a Hipster.  So true.  Have fun shopping!

Holiday Gift Tags Galore!

This is definitely a busy time for me.  With my daughter's 2nd birthday coming up and the holidays, I can't even keep up with myself.  I love the idea of everything handmade, but who has the time to do it?  So to help you out during this busy season, I've compiled a list where you can download some free holiday gift tags.  I know, it's the least I can do.  Enjoy and Happy Holidays!

Yeah, you said it right.  The newest of the millions of blogs that I follow each day. Lovely everything!

once upon a time, a gal named tula jeng purchased a painting (see above) by artist paul kozlowski at the fake gallery in hollywood.  from that day on, her favorite color has been whorange.

in 2008, tula created WHORANGE as a way to celebrate craveable style & design in all of its splendor -- from the beautifully innovative to the gloriously gaudy.  throughout the pages of WHORANGE, you will find works by independent artists and designers, unique interiors, mid-century must haves, high brow art, low brow cravings, flea market fantasies, catwalk candy, fabulous events, ecomania, and stuff your eccentric gay uncle would love.
