Woven Stripes Wrapping Paper and Tags from Minted

I'm pleased to share my new personalizable and very versatile wrapping paper design for minted.

Use them and the matching tags and stickers for everything from the grandchildren's easter gifts to bridesmaid presentsor  tokens of teacher appreciation.



It's here! I'm not sure yet whether it will be profitable enough to maintain, but get over to R&B Consignments at 270 The Lynnway in Lynn to check out my booth (E) and all the other fun and funky stuff my booth-mates have on offer. I won't be hosting a grand opening as soon as I anticipated because I just had back surgery (yay! - really, it's a good thing), but I will definitely do something early this spring. FOUND's Hours are 10-5 everyday but monday. xoxo. Let me know if you plan to drop by and I will try to meet you.



How cool would it be if your closet was magically replaced by your pins? Sometimes I think about that kind of stuff when I should be doing the dishes. Or changing the world.

What is that apple almond butter sandwich doing in there? Don't ask me.


Happy 2014!

Wishing you and your loved ones growth and great joy! (This is coming a little late since we all had the flu over the holiday-- so I'm crossing my fingers for good health in the new year.)


flipagram is fun - and beautiful

Since we were all sick over vacation, the entire event felt a little like moving through molasses. More screen was consumed by all than I am proud of but . . . I found this excellent iPhone app called flipagram that allows you to create and score mini Instagram-friendly slide shows.

I've made several (addictive):

But there are a bunch out there that are stunning, like this one by Chinese photographer Trevor Tan (http://instagram.com/trevortht) and featured on the app's Instagram feed.

Pretty and hypnotic.

(Flipagram comes with a flipagram watermark In the lower right hand corner. For 1.99 you can customize it. But it always revert back to flipagram so you need To remember to change it each time. You can access free music clips through the find music button. Or use your own music that isn't copyright protected.)

Show me your flipagrams!
