Let’s wrap this up…

We just got a new shipment of wrapping paper, to get ready for the holidays. Here are some of my all time favorites and some new designs from EIEIO Studios. Jean Orlebeke, designer of EIEIO papers, is inspired by the mid-century modernists, the abstract forms of modern sculpture, and the beauty of hand woven textiles. […]

stillife of tweenlife

There is no denying that my son Jarek, my collaborator, my “baby” is growing up. Here my “Sunday Morning” stillife -objects from around his desk, his room, our kitchen, the studio…these are the things he carries with him; the things he creates every day on his journey of becoming who he will be. Today, he […]

Tiny Fingers Tiny Toes

I got a beautiful email from a customer today: I am so glad I had the presence of mind to bring the baby book with us to the hospital. It was the only thing I cared about making sure I had with me. My son is named Raleigh Wyatt and his birth date was February […]

The Queen & King of England. For a day.

When Laura Robinson called from London and asked if we could be hired to design her wedding invitation we said yes. Yes we do. Laura and her groom Adrian had fallen in love with BINTH over our Joker Print collection and the matching playing cards. So much in love that they decided to go with […]

Lobster Octopus Nutcracker

Look! Our framed Alphabet letters are featured in the latest Land Of Nod Catalog. I love that the stylist spelled out one of my favorite boy names-and then put these on a BINTH Green wall…FUN! ( Thanks Jamie, Lia and Nancy from LOD for letting us use the picture here.)

For weeks now I have been tinkering with an amazing array of essential oils-trying to create the perfect concoction. Then name it and marry it with the perfect BINTH design. I love this process. 8 original designs. […]

Happy Birthday Fun

Look what Jarek got me for my Birthday- a Marshmallow Man. The toasted one. Tasteful on so many levels… Yes, he knows me well. The cutest thing: he delivered this present on a tray, serving me breakfast in bed. Made by Squibbles Ink + Rotofugi this is my third “Marshall” character. Further to be noted […]

“Friends With You”…for when feeling blue

I am a big sucker for yes, polka dots and naturally I am a huge fan of the design group “Friends With You”. Their amazing little objects are sure to at least get a crack of a smile out of me here in dreary, grey and cold Chicago. I am not a serious collector, but […]

Mink for me

I had to have this “mink hole scarf!” Made by a cool woman that calls herself “Lazy Gal”,  in my favorite color ( sophisticated light blue), using my favorite shape ( circles)  from recycled materials of which one of it is yes, mink. If I were you, I would email Martha Bishop right now and […]
