Happy Weekend + ICFF 2012!

I've been a busy little worker bee this week getting ready for ICFF. This will be my second year attending and I'm super stoked! I'll be in New York through Tuesday, so I hope that some of my posts from Curbly and Dog Milk will tide you over until then. :)


It's typography week, apparently! Here's my wall art shopping guide for all things type-related as well as a roundup of some DIY typographic wall art ideas!

This DIY cork pencil holder and desktop organizer is super cute and super simple!

I love this wood veneer mobile -- I kinda want to make a million!

Before you decide to paint that wood dresser, check out this incredible dresser makeover!

Finnish design gets me every time... Loving this modern dog collection from Neroko!

Wear your "crazy dog person" love on your sleeve--or your wrist.

Gorgeous pet photography by Karin Newstrom!


Happy weekend and I'll see you Wednesday!



Happy Weekend!

While I'm gearing up to head to ICFF next week (no rest for the wicked, as they say), I hope you'll enjoy some of my ramblings and goodies from elsewhere! It was a regular ol' color explosion this week on Curbly and Dog Milk, as you can see. Which, quite frankly, is my favorite kind of explosion.


It's art month on Curbly (yay!), and I'm putting together weekly affordable wall art guides! First up is a roundup of 10 awesome collage artists.

How to make your own paper pencils!

Last minute gift-giving? Try making a few of these cheery little DIY clay planters!

This colorful pup caught my eye this week. Isn't he adorable?!

20 gorgeous tea towels all in one place?? Yes, please!

We launched a brand new DIY column on Dog Milk this week called DoggIY! Check out this modern do-it-yourself dog crate coffee table.

I seriously cannot believe this DIY chandelier is made from plastic water bottles!

Possibly one of my favorite Eye Candy posts yet: 7 colorful, art-filled interiors!

It's raining cats and dogs, or just dogs in this case. I am totally getting one of these dog breed umbrellas (the schnauzer one, of course).

I love this colorful DIY woven bench idea.

And finally, this might be the best app ever created for dog owners or friends-of-dogs! Really.


See you Monday!
