Modern Genealogy.

At one point or another I’m willing to bet you had to put together a family tree. I was in the 3rd grade.. And I can still remember sitting on the hallway floor outside of the bathroom while my mother got ready for work and grilling her about her huge side of the family. I don’t remember much else, but I guarantee that the end result looked nothing like these stunning modern genealogy charts over at My Tree and Me. (Definitely another item destined for my ever-expanding Christmas List!) {via Design*Sponge}


Golly Bard.

And I mean big time crush. I’m thisclose to doodling Golly Bard (aka Holly) all over my notebook cover! She’s constantly (and i mean constantly) adding new pieces to her shop. Each watercolor has the same attention to detail as the next and Holly seems equally in love with all of them. I can already tell that I may not get over this one for awhile…


Win It: paper bullet.

I’ve been a fan of the art and illustration of Lisa Romero for quite some time and I love her tendency to gravitate towards the girlish things in life. You can check out her portfolio at her site, paper bullet, and flickr for yourself because, dang, this lady has got some serious talent! And of course don’t forget her shop… you’d be missing out on awesomeness.

This week one of you have the opportunity to win an original piece of Lisa’s work! That’s right, an original, not a print! It’s ink and acrylic on watercolor paper and measures 5.25 X 6.25.

To Enter, Tell Me:
1. All about your favorite pair of shoes!
2. Your email address to be notified if you win (those who do not will be disqualified)
3. Do it all before Monday, November 9th at 9am CST
