Found this on a new blog I follow called FFFFOUND! It is just crazy randomness that looks artistically aesthetic, I like the colors, textures and shapes they combined together:

Old Black and White.

I have been meaning to share these old family photos I have scanned on my computer. I really like them, I think they are charming old black and white photos - OK maybe I am a little biased since they are of my family!? Anywho, here they are:

My Grandmother and Grandfather Schrier at a dance in the 50's with their friends Rich and Rosemary.

However you want it.

I have been very impressed with the recent campaign for Starbucks Frappuccinos called "However-you-want-it". The campaign is basically to advertise that you can now have your frappuccino just like that.... however you want it. I am a big fan of the mixed media/collage style and the hand-made look. I think these are very effective and personal while sticking to the Starbucks brand.

Here are some of the campaign pieces...

On it's way...

After much research... I have finally decided on the Pentax X90 - hopefully it is as awesome as the specs AND hopefully it will be here before the long holiday weekend!

Tweet Overload.

I made a twitter account a month or so (or who knows how long) ago to check it out.  I barely use it, my tweets are pointless and I barely "follow" anyone...I am just more a facebook gal.  But, I go on this morning and see this:

Whatttt? LOL, but I thought it was a cute graphic and thought I would share!

Pretty cool website of an artist who sketches people on subways all over the world.

Strip Packaging

Thought I would share a few package designs i thought were clean, creative, fresh and environmentally friendlyish. These package designs all are composed from strips of paper wrapped around the bottles which uses less paper to cover the product. They can also be used on a variety of shaped products making it more verstitile.

I think they are nifty - check 'em out:

Gray Bridesmaids.

I have been WAY slacking on blog entries and I apologize...BUT I have not been slacking on finding things to blog about - just the execution of the entries have been delayed. I have been saving links to put together this entry on gray wedding themes which I think are edgy, interesting and modern. I follow several wedding blogs and have noticed a trend lately with gray weddings. When I first saw it, I was surprised since gray is usually thought as a dull or businessy color. However, when used correctly it actually makes for a very nice wedding theme, especially the use of yellow and gray which seems most popular (here is an article about it from wedding paper divas).  I like the use of neutral colors as bridesmaids dresses while the flowers and decorations/bouquets are the pop of color in the wedding.  Plan to see entries to come on other neutral bridesmaids colors, but enjoy these gray themes for now!

Ben Heine.

I stumbled upon this artist the other day, Ben Heine.  I just Googled him and his blog and website were first to come up.  What I had stumbled upon was his "Pencil vs. Photograph" art which I think is clever - most of his other artwork isn't really my type. Pretty nifty, take a look:

Bop Bags.

Here is an advertising campaign for Henkel Super Bonder that I found on Ads of the World.  I saw the magazine ads first and then the actual bop bags that were placed in public second.  I think the whole concept is creative, and really shows that their adhesive can apparently fix even the most delicate of objects.  I think the magazines or the bop bags themselves without each other would still be a strong campaign.  Here are the images (also check them out on Ads of the World):

Preston Bailey.

I recently came across this awesome event planner/designer named Preston Bailey.  Not much to say about him but that he makes spectacular looking events.  Here are a few photos I found that are my favorites of his events.  Also make sure to check out his website.

It is also amazing to see what the before and afters were.  Shockingly, a good amount of these awesome events were in the "shabbiest" of places - on a roof, in a barn, in a basketball stadium - not nearly what they end up looking like.

I found this piece of artwork when "stumbling" the other day.  I think it is pretty awesome.  It is called "Wave of the Future". I unfortunately have no information on who created this or how.  But, what I can tell you is that is was definitely an adaptation of the Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai's painting "The Great Wave of Kanagawa."
