For my boss's birthday I made these shortbread tea bags... I was inspired when I saw some wooden tea bags as part of a kid's play food set - I thought hmmm one day I could do shortbread dipped in chocolate! I made little tags with cupcakes and used embroidery thread. I used a round icing tip to punch a little hole in each one before I baked so that I could thread it later. ps... shortbread recipe from: Source
The kind people at Picador sent me a box of books, including a memoir (Margaux Fragoso’s Tiger, Tiger ), a few novels ( The Lover’s Dictionary by David Levithan; Ralph Sassone’s The Intimates ; Alan Glynn’s noir thriller Bloodland ; Dieter Schlesak’s The Druggist of Auschwitz , which purports to be a “documentary novel”; and Zoë Heller’s first novel, Everything You Know ), and a work of political science (Ari Berman’s Herding Donkeys ). A box of books is a bit overwhelming, but I make it a point to spend some time with every book that comes into Biblioklept World Headquarters. Here’s some thoughts on these. I actually ended up reading almost all of The Lover’s Dictionary , despite it having the word “lover” in the title, which, jeez.

Some of the photos have the objects set up by function, others by texture and color, but all have them packed in creating an oppressive and confined feeling.

For a long time I´ve been wanting to do something with one of my sisters, my great-aunt and typography. Not all together, but it just turned out that way. As my son gets older and I get more grey hair, I wonder what kind of advice will I give to my grandkids. My three grandmothers where always giving me sermons instead of tips. “Be carfeul with your money”. “Don´get invloved with that girl”, “Save”, “Get a haircut, you look like a hippie”, and all those classic parent, grandparent comments.
This is an ongoing series of self initiated screen printed posters I produce and put up around the Facebook offices. Some of the quotes, like “move fast and break things,” are mantras at Facebook, others are just personal favorites I’ve picked up from various sources along the way. They are meant to inspire, motivate, and question our internal ideas. As you can see they definitely spawn conversation and interaction with other Facebook employees, which I think is awesome.
The most common one in my home is the Pillow Takeover. It's okay. As long as they're happy, I guess. A few things: 1. Here's some pics from the Changing Hands Tempe book signing .
