I posted about Inhabit’s Pillow Design Contest in July, do you recall? Mike from Inhabit wrote in today to let me know that they’ve posted the finalists on their website and would love YOUR vote. Click here to vote!
Psst: Imelda redesigned her blog recently, too. It looks great. Nice job, Imelda!

If you want to spruce up your crib on a dime, try grabbing some iron-ons from the Dutch Trade Shop and pick one item in your home as your science project. High quality, easy to use, and wayyy cute, I’m thinking a pillow for starters, or if you feel a bit daring, try cotton or canvas curtains. You can add a few birdies, maybe 3 flying up the panel from bottom to top, just keep the design on the bottom 1/3 of one panel only so it’s cute and not overkill. An iron-on isn’t just for tees ‘n bags anymore! Just be careful, you can definitely destroy the vibe you’re going for if you apply an iron-on to everything you own. Again, be selective (I’d opt for one item) and remember, we’re going for an accent here, not the focal point of the room.

God how cute are these, huh? Now you can create graphic art without stepping foot near a computer. Classic videogame graphics via Wood Pixel is great for creative play and display in your home, and because each pixel cube has 6 sides (each a different wood – there’s 100 blocks per set!), you can feel free to change your mind and recreate as often as you’d like. I totally dig this.
