Special gift for my Dadda

21 Jun

Yes, that’s what I can my Dad. My Dadda is known for telling my family he doesn’t want anything for his birthday or holidays. I’ve always felt these special days call for a special gift. I just can’t let the day pass without doing something nice for him. Since I knew he’d appreciate my frugalness, I went with a picture frame I had around the house and designed a quote for the picture area. I thought this appropriately showed my gratitude for all he does for our family. What quote would you have used for your Dad?

Let us be grateful to people who make us happy. They are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.

1. Now Relevant is a search engine for current topics and trends. This search engine pulls information on a subject for only the past two weeks.

2. Step Up Speak Out is a website that helps teens with gender violence and sexual assault, a very serious issue facing teens. The site is very edge and contains a large amount of great content.

3. Lovely Package is a great blog about package design. Vintage, Redesign, Student work, all great examples of lovely design. I’m not a wine drinker, but I love perusing the wine aisles to see all the great labels.

top 8 – Links I love this week

11 Oct

1. Five Books helps you become an instant expert. Every day an eminent writer, thinker, commentator, politician, academic chooses five books on their specialist subject. Their knowledge is passed you, read it and buy the books.

2. Autumn has arrived, time for delicious apple pies and tasty root veggies. Get inspired with these Fall Recipes.

3. Ben & Jerry’s Halloween seems to love Halloween almost as much as I do. Check out the goblins and witches on this hauntingly intriguing site.

4. The Oatmeal – Very disappointed I didn’t find this site way earlier. Be advised it contains hilarious, witty and pretty accurate comics about a designer’s workday and general everyday life. So glad I found it 🙂
