A Kick in the Pants.

These are hilarious and I totally needed it this morning! You know how some people just suck? Really bad? Here are three things that can help you feel better about it. Even if it’s just a little bit.

The first is from youparklikeanasshole.com (clever address, no?). Sick of a car taking up two spaces on the street? How about a car too close to yours? What about the car at the mall parked diagonally? Now you can do something about it. Simply download a notice and place it on the car’s windshield. The owner of the vehicle will be informed of their asshole status as well as the proper tips to improve their poor parking techniques. It’s time to put an end to asshole parking, or at least to make fun of it. The site is pretty clever, too, you can download the notices as well post and view notices in action.

The second is from Coudal’s Cell Phone Etiquette campaign. We’ve all had that awkward moment when we overhear someone’s personal cell phone conversation. Now we have the power to stop it. You can download them here.

The third is the all-encompassing Douche Card from Orange32. Stock up. 25 cards for $5.


Joey Ruiter.

I’m way into this metal-cut mirror by Michigan designer Joey Ruiter. I just can’t decide if it would be something I would get tired of after a few years (not that it’s remotely near my price range).



I want to live inside one of these pop-ups on WhippetGrey’s website. If you want to see, quite possibly, the most clever website design ever check it out asap. The online shop is filled with a lovely selection, but the website is really truly original, with each section illustrated by a 3-D pop-up book that represents each room of a house.


The Copper Bird.

It makes me feel like a senile old woman sometimes, but recently I’ve been somewhat addicted to birds. Not the real thing, but design-wise. Not sure where this whole things has come from. Maybe that’s what happens when you turn 27 – you become Bird Lady.

Today I came across this great copper bird doorbell ($45) at Flopping Fish.



I’m a day late (and a buck short) but think these umbrellas by pare*umbrella are incredible. If it were raining again today I can totally imagine dancing and swinging around streetlamps while swinging one around.


Monday Goodness: Found.

Today I totally had a Case of the Mondays.

Then I came across Found Magazine. They collect found stuff (duh): love letters, birthday cards, kids’ homework, to-do lists, ticket stubs, poetry on napkins, doodles– anything that gives a glimpse into someone else’s life. Anything goes. I could literally spend hours digging through the archives (and probably will later on). Check it out because it’s well worth your time.



Moo dreams up new tools that help people turn their virtual content into beautiful print products. I’m loving their MiniCards and StickerBooks!

The StickerBooks are generated out of your Flickr stream or from your very own designs – 90 different, full color, glossy Stickers, printed on 15 different sheets and bound into a pocket-sized book ($9.99). There are also readymades available if your pictures suck and you want to use Moo’s. There’s free shipping on StickerBooks for July only, so hurry up and take advantage.

MiniCards are roughly half the size of a normal business card. Same deal – choose up to 100 of your own designs or pictures from your Flickr stream (or use Moos) and add up to six different lines of text on the back. The cards show up on your doorstep in a reusable plastic box ($19.99). And I figure you can probably do tons of different things with these besides using them as their intended purpose.


Einat Peled.

Einat Peled is an incredible illustrator i only just discovered who specializes in images, drawings and editorial illustrations. I can’t find a lot of information on her, but her illustrations are beautiful, especially the black and whites.
