I ‘ve found my newest color idols in The Color Condition. They pop up at events, displays, and whatever to streamer the place up into a beautiful flowy explosion of color and movement. The streamers are made from tablecloths, painter drop cloths, shower curtains, etc. So pretty and fun!

Where would you want a streamer installation?

{Wish I Was Wednesday} Hanh Lam

I’m a sucker for a good cause & even more for good design. So, when these two things come together such as with Hanh Lam‘s designs for The Young Designers Collective (YDC), I’m sold! In the picture above, I’m wearing the edgy Ramona earrings designed by Hanh Lam. The cute little tassels are made with Alabaster white calf skin leather and topped with patina treated brass bobbles.

Part of the proceeds for everything in the YDC shop go towards a wonderful cause supported by the designer. Ten percent of these earrings’ proceeds go towards Book Aid International, a non-profit organization that provides mobile libraries for children in sub-saharan African villages.

These earrings as well as other YDC designs would be the perfect “double” gift for anyone on your shopping list. Give to a friend and to a charity in one swoop!

What are your favorite designs from the YDC shop?

Note: These earrings were provided by YDC. All words and opinions are my own.

Have you started your holiday shopping? I can’t believe how quickly we are approaching the end of the year. Today, instead of an artist I admire, I wanted to introduce you to a brand I admire, SOLO Eyewear. Not only are their bamboo shades stylish works of art, but their cause is wonderful too. Every purchase helps fund eye care for people in need. Each pair of sunglasses are handcrafted and prescription friendly! Plus, the ones with designs are hand painted by the artist. Amazing!

So, get your gift sunglasses orders in and feel great about getting shopping done and helping those less fortunate!

They’re offering to you lucky readers get 10% off SOLO Eyewear through 12/31/13 with code: SOLOten. They also offer free shipping to the contiguous US!

Which pair are your favorite?

Portland based Leah Flores is inspiring me with her hand lettering combined with retro feel photography for a match made in heaven. A and I used to get excited when we discovered a new place in the neighborhood and beyond and we’d just look at each other and say “Adventure!” (yes, we’re total dorks like that). I definitely need to order some prints, but which ones?

San Francisco based illustrator and designer, Brent Couchman, is making me itching to try my hand at hand lettering. His work’s vintage vibe is fun and fresh. I’m loving his work for Fossil as much as I’m loving his “fun” work!

Have you ever tried hand lettering?

{Béatrice Coron}

This amazing woman studied art but went on to hold many an odd jobs from shepherdess and truck driver to factory worker and a New York City tour guide. At 40, Béatrice Coron came back to NYC from France to be an artist. Her intricate paper cuttings tell stories. In her statement:

My creative inspiration comes from everything I see and everything I read. For each theme, one story leads to the next, and the creation process weaves different layers of our relations to the universe. In papercutting as in life everything is connected.

I love staring at each piece and imagining their interactions with each other, which is just as she intended!

What interactions today has you thinking?
