I love to play with this SUPER FUN app that generates a lovely harmonious color palette from your photos. You upload a photo and the app processes it and spits out the palette. This would be a great way to think about room decor, website design, or even what color picture frame to get. Here are a some I did from some of my photos:
This is the (amazing, delicious, if you love cheese don’t miss it!) cheese shop in Neal’s Yard, London, that makes a lovely subtle palette.

And now for something completely different: the GINGERBREAD CASBAH.
The gingerbread casbah came into being because every year, we throw a themed Christmas party for around 100 of our closest friends. Since we just took a honeymoon to the Middle East, we thought we could try out some new tricks at a Middle East-themed Christmas party. After all, that is where the whole Christmas thing started, right? An evite full of bad puns later (“we are Beiruting for you to come”, and so forth) we had our “Christmas at the Casbah” party ready to go, and all we needed was an impressive centerpiece.

Have you tried Yearbook Yourself yet? You can upload a photo and see how you’d look through the eras.
I think these are my best three, if by “best” I mean most amusing. Heh. I’m tempted to use one of these for my next Christmas card.

My friends got married on a mountaintop in Israel, and had a little local shindig to celebrate the nuptials stateside. I offered to make a wedding cake for the party, and they gave me absolutely NO guidance. These folks are avid kayakers, backpackers, skiers, and mountaineers- but of all those, kayaking is definitely their #1 love. Furthermore, they met on a kayaking trip. So this was a no-brainer: I had to surprise them with a kayak wedding cake!

YaYa Chou, a Taiwanese artist, created this bearskin-shaped rug out of Gummi Bears and fake nails, and it’s amazing.
I have no words. I love it.
Visit YaYa Chou’s site for more info and photos of this and other works!

It seems I’ve been serially bookmarking a whole bunch of odd and unusual DIY lighting ideas so I thought it was time to clean it out and share a few with you.

STUNNING- the trick would be keeping them inflated for more than a couple hours.

Check out these stylish bracelets made out of dead Starbucks gift cards.
Now I’ve seen everything. Young whippersnappers today are really just way too crafty, talented, creative, patient, eco-conscious, and skilled for their own good, I SWEAR, it’s almost enough to make you sick- that is, until you realize you’re just feeling sick because you’re jealous of their mad skillz and ability to execute ideas successfully and efficiently.
