- I bought these waxy coated ‘trousers’ at Zara a few weeks ago and have been wearing them almost non-stop. Do it.

- OMG HUNGER GAMES HUNGER GAMES HUNGER GAMES! I figured out that this poster which has been through the Pinterest/Tumblr Gauntlet of Nonattribution, was once sold by this Etsy shop (thanks to Design Crush for the info!) but is no longer available Sad smile
- Thanks for all of your kind comments and notes about my Wednesday post on Whimseybox. I’m going to try writing a personal account about what’s going on every week. I think it might be useful for me as well as anyone else trying to start something, plus it will be fun to look back on someday. (On bad days I tell myself ‘this is going to be a funny anecdote in my book someday’!!!) So stay tuned for the first installment: how I sent a cat to Mark Cuban.
- If you’re starting/working on your own business (or life!) you might like this post from Making Things Happen.
- I love a good ‘how it’s made’ video- this one is from Roy Denim.
- Chuck Jones draws Daffy Duck, but the commentary is my favorite part. Are you feeling like a Daffy or a Bugs today?

- A few weeks ago I learned that Houston has a hacker space, TX/RX Labs. How I did I not know about this? You can learn all kinds of cool stuff like laser cutting, 3D printing, welding and more. A friend and I are planning to attend their open house some Friday in the next few weeks. If you’re in Houston and want to check it out with us, email me!
