i've been collecting security envelopes recently to use in collages. the patterns are amazing. so i decided to google and try and find others who are doing the same thing....big shocker, there are a bunch. here are some examples:

jk keller collected the envelopes for a long time and is now making laser-cut envelopes with the patterns...called "insecurity envelopes"

a flickr set dedicated to the various patterns
heres a more fun way of looking at them

becky johnson on etsy makes buttons out of them!

cindy bernard documented security envelopes from 1987-1993 by photograph

Gretchen makes beads things out of junk mail, including security envelopes

IT'S IT!!! i'm going to be san francisco's favorite treat, the it's it ice cream sandwich for halloween. for those of you who aren't familiar with the "it's it," it is an ice cream sandwich composed of a delicious layer of mint/vanilla/cappucino/or chocolate ice cream embraced by two crunchy oatmeal cookies and the whole calorie-counting monster dipped in a thin layer of chocolate. sound amazing? IT IS!!!

here are some photos...i'm sewing the costume over the next few days. i'm so excited!!!!

someone's homemade (probably not as good) it's it

apparently google has it's own natural it's it (there goes my entrepreneurial gig)


i dont know what to be for halloween. kind of want to be a painting....i have the same haircut as her:

by christian schad

it's at the lenbachhaus in munich

but i was also considering:


and more....to come....HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!



just did yoga for the FIRST TIME EVER tonight!!! pretty exciting. here are some cool yoga-related images. it felt so good to stretch in ways i have never stretched before. my mind included. but i'm exhausted and will definitely be sore tomorrow.

i want this as my yoga outfit



when i was in hamburg as an exchange student my junior year of highschool, i saw one of these lamps (probably a different designer...that was quite a long time ago) and fell in love. just saw it again and entered to win it on apartment therapy. wish me luck! gummi gummi gummi bears!!!
