Creative Tablets

This interesting concept was designed as an invitation to The Creative Method Xmas party and was based on the idea of the existence of an imaginary pharmaceutical tablet that would solve all creative issues. Initially, guests were emailed a doctors prescription, followed by the package in a discrete paper bag which contained the invitation and tablets. The party included staff dressed as doctors.

The hangerpak is a box and also acts as a hanger! Designer Steve Haslip, came up with this concept as a result of always runnin gof of hangers to hang the wrinkled t-shirts he buys online. The packaging could be made from recycled material whether it is card or plastic and the only waste is the green tear-away tab.

Lovely clusters

If you are a fan of beautiful handmade and vintage items like I am, you would have to check out Lovely Clusters. This website is THE PLACE to browse from very creative artists and designers from around the world.

Each item is organised and group by clusters or according to their shop, colour and category. Click on the image you like and it brings you directly to the sellers shop site where you can purchase and find more information. Here are some beautiful objects I picked out to share:

Textured Walls

I absolutely love the texture of the walls in this derelict house and its contrast with the ornate furnishing. (via plus d'ide que d'argent)

One Line A Day

With a blink of an eye, the first 10 years of this new millenia have come and gone. As I look back to take stock of my own life so far, I am amazed by where I am today and thankful to God for seeing me through the ups and downs of the last decade.

Just as we do not feel the earth moving and the seasons changing, so it is with changes in our own lives sometimes. As a New Year's gift to myself this year, I got myself a book called "A Line a Day". This is a journal of sorts with each page specially designed to allow you to record the events of each day for 5 years so that you may revisit these thoughts and memories some day. This book is current sold out in most places but can be pre-ordered here.
