The Week That Was – October 22, 2010

by Alicia on October 22, 2010

It’s the end of another week and I’m waiting anxiously for UPS to deliver the fabric for the futon cover. This week I hooked up the Wii in my office so I can watch Netflix while I’m working. I just started watching Veronica Mars – what was I so busy doing in 2004 that I completely missed this? I’m particularly enjoying the soundtrack- Spoon, Postal Service, Tegan and Sara…  Anyway, here’s some of the cool and inspiring things I saw this week when I wasn’t playing Angry Birds on my Android…

  • I found these custom profile bangles very interesting. Take a close look! I love the bright colors of the resin bracelets, but the gold ones remind me of Darth Vader for some reason! Not recommended for those who dislike their noses…
  • Something about the fashion + science + ingenuity of this airbag helmet idea just resonates with me. I mean, why not? I wonder if it will really work and be affordable?
  • I loved this cartoon/mindmap by Frank Chimero on having ideas and creativity. I always hear people say ‘I’m not creative’ and think ‘Yes! You are!’ Most people’s first ideas aren’t the best ones… the key is to keep at it.
  • Another fun and easy DIY from P.S. I Made This, this one with pom poms. I’ve been mulling over ideas of what to make with some pom pom trim lately…
  • These painted people by Alexa Meade featured on A Cup of Jo really blew me away.
  • One of my favorite things about watching Project Runway (poor, sad Michael C!) is seeing where the designers get their inspiration, so I loved seeing this post from Jason Wu about finding inspiration for a dress in a plate of the best looking pasta on the plant.
