Jaime Ursic

Jaime Ursic reminds me of one of my favorite artists, Mark Rothko. Her paintings are so simple and full of feeling.

Paper Dolls

Paper dolls are wonderful. I recently found an envelope of paper dolls I played with when I was little. I remember my mom helping me cut them out and how delicate they were. Yesterday, I bought a birthday card for someone with little paper dolls that punched out. I bought one for me too! These dolls are from Demarco Designs.

Silvia Stella

Illustrator, Silvia Stella, draws playful figures and has a musically pretty myspace.

Color Blok

Web sites with animated movement is childhood Saturday morning all over again! The above illustration is from Color Blok, where there is colorful still and motion illustrations. Another fun place is that has a huge list of things to create with the click and swoosh of your mouse, flower gardens to snowflakes!

LockWasher Design

This makes me want to go to a thrift store or a junk yard (or my garage!) and see what I can put together. I am sure I could make nothing as cute as LockWasher Design. I love the whole recycling idea and the creativity of these robots!

More Letter Pressed genius! See the evolution of the above Presston Plush at the Letter Pressed Blog. Not to mention two artist series letter pressed card packs from Letter Pressed are traveling via the Post Office from sunny California to me in cloudy New York. Yeah!!

Una Flor de Papel

In an attempt to become more one with nature (mmm), this year we got a surfing calender with the phases of the moon as a major feature. Today, I saw this calender by Cecilia in Buenos Aires, Argentina. She features the calender on her blog, Flor de Papel. How cool is this! It organizes and simplifies the whole moon phase thing.

Luis Santi Jr.

Web sites get more exciting all the time! Luis Santi Jr.'s web site is the magic of flash and graphic design - purely enjoyable at every click. This picture is Luis's favorite cologne which he lost while on a California trip. A delightful story he tells in the text part of his site. Check it out --

Cherokee Wisdom

Two Wolves

One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a
battle that goes on inside people.
He said, "My son, the battle is between two
"wolves" inside us all.

One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret,
greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false
pride, superiority, and ego.

The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility,
kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith."

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather:
"Which wolf wins?"

The old Cherokee replied, "The one you feed."
